Two new back-to-back choreographies by graduating master of fine arts candidates Folawole and Kevin O’Connor will be showcased this month in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts.
O’Connor’s piece fuses live vocal, music, dance and aerial rope circus arts in an examination of what community means in contemporary society. Folawole’s new work will explore his question, “Will we accept or perplex possibilities for a powerful playful present?”
The presentations are planned at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 16-18 and 23-25, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19 and 26.
Tickets are $17/$19 general and $12/$14 for senior citizens, students and children. They may be purchased at the Mondavi Center box office, online at www.mondaviarts.org or by calling (530) 754-2787.
