MARGARET JENKINS DANCE COMPANY Times Bones

This event repeats on a custom schedule
From September 13, 2013 until September 14, 2013

This event series has ended

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of her company, choreographer Margaret Jenkins returns to the Clarice Smith Center with the world premiere of Times Bones, a new work co-commissioned by the Center.

Created in collaboration with the MJDC dancers, composer Paul Dresher, visual designer Alexander V. Nichols and poet Michael Palmer, Times Bones features live music by the Paul Dresher Ensemble.

A special prelude will begin in the Center lobby at 7:30PM and move to the Kay Theatre, drawing the audience along in an actual — as well as a metaphorical — journey.

Inspired by the myth of Osiris, Jenkins, with her dancers and collaborators, gathers the scattered “bones” of her past repertory, finding a new dance at the collision of past and present. One of the great masters of dance, Jenkins propels the artists and the audience on a journey forward into a rich and unknown territory.

During a one-week residency leading up to the performance, members of the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company will work with students from the UMD School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies and the UMD School of Music.
