Published DatePLYMOUTH — The Karl Drerup Art Gallery and Exhibitions Program at Plymouth State University will host a site-specific performance of music, dance and art at 4 p.m. Saturday, January 26, at the gallery.
Choreographer Joan Wiegers, former director of dance at Plymouth State University, and 30 PSU alumni and friends from 1989-2007 will return to campus for the performance.
Wiegers says the program will "blend the lines between movement, live music, audience and art. The dancers will explore the concept of 'dancers in shapes.'"
The performance occurs throughout the entire space, with audience members invited to walk through the gallery and observe dancers continually changing the line and design of each shape.
Composer Adam Darnell is from Norwell, Mass., and is currently a senior music technology student at Plymouth State University. He has been composing music and working with digital media for five years.
Area artist Sara Hage of Plymouth is the staging artist for the program.
Wiegers is a master teacher, choreographer and performer, presently teaching at colleges, schools and dance centers throughout New England and beyond.
The Karl Drerup Art Gallery is located in the Draper and Maynard Building on North Main Street in Plymouth. Gallery hours are Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.; Wednesday 10a.m.– 8 p.m. and Saturday from 1–4 p.m. The gallery is closed Sunday and PSU Holidays.
