Zagreb Grande Ballet
Power Center
8 p.m. Saturday, October 23
T HE ZAGREB Grand Ballet, on their
American debut-tour long-awaited
by this country's connoisseurs and en-
thusiasts of dance, performs this
Saturday at 8 p.m. in the Power Center.
Part of the University's Musical
Society's Choice Series, this
Yugoslavian troupe's repertory in-
cludes works by the legendary Fokine,
Petipa, Linchine and major
choreographers who have followed
them.
Saturday's performance includes
Graduation Ball set to music by
Strauss, The Creatures of Prometheus
(music from the overture by
Beethoven), "Black Swan Pas De
Deux" from Swan Lake(Tchaikovsky),
and "Polovtzian Dances" from
Borodin's opera Prince Igor.
The troupe is a major wing of the
Croatian National Theatre of Zagreb
and has shared the stage with the

Zagreb Grande Ballet: Swan Lake
Croatian National Opera since it's
founding in 1870. In 1876 the company
established itself as a separate entity
from the opera company and began of-
fering their own dance presentations.
As a state-supported institution, the
company not only attracts major
choreographers but also the most talen-
ted dancers and designers that create
ballets and a company of artistic ex-
cellence.
The Zagreb Company has toured

L.

Italy, Austria, Holland, Greece, Great
Britain, France, Czechoslovakia, the
Soviet Union and Japan. This season
the ensemble graces the stages of the
United States as other great foreign
companies, such as the Bolshoi Ballet
and The Royal Danish Ballet, have in
the past.
Those who hold tickets to Saturday's
sold-out performance can look forward
to an evening with a legendary com-
pany of both beauty and excitement. I

Dances for a New Space
Graduate Thesis Concert
Residential College Theater, East Quad
Friday-Saturday, October 22-23
DANCES FOR a New Space, this
year's premiere performance
from the Dance Department, will im-
press past supporters of University
dance as well as newcomers to the local
dance world. This Friday and Saturday
night, the stage of the Residential
College Theater, at East Quad, will
spotlight the choreography of three
Michigan graduate students: Laurice
Hamp, Pamela Mundy,and Michael M-
cStraw. The choreography spans a wide
range of moods, themes, and
techniques, all used to create a physical
interpretation of an often intangible
world.
This weekend's program is composed
of six separate dances. Each
choreographer will present two works:
one designed for a group and one solo.
The dancers- include both un-
dergraduate and graduate dance
majors as well as nonmajors, making
for a broad range of experience and
ability.
Michael McStraw manages to exploit
his dancers' talents to their fullest. Mc-
Straw performs in his piece, entitled

Contours and Furrows, along with
Cathy Kebbey and Jonathen Urla. Lou
Grabowski will accompany the dancers
with improvisational percussion which
mcStraw says, "goes from order to
breaking down of order to resuming or-
der."
The most theatrical piece of the con-
cert is Laurice Hamp's Ridgeway.
Dancers Michael Driscoll, Priscilla
Loson, Kevin-Michael Moore, and Gor-
don VanAmberg perform to a musical
composition by Paul Horn. The theme
deals with facades and basic roles and
each dancer portrays a different
character in a world of conflicting per-
sonalities and stereotypes. The piece
often looks like the performances of
four solo dancers sharing a common
stage, which is Hamp's technique for
illustrating the world of intimate
strangers.
In contrast to attempts by McStraw
and Hamp to cover broad, intangible
sulijects, Pamela Mundy focuses on a
visible, miniature world. Her group
piece, entitled Under the Porch Light,
recreates the night activities of insects
on a magnified scale. By extending the
dance past the limits of the stage, Mun-
dy has cleverly authenticized the buggy
night atmosphere. The choreography
does not clearly distinguish one insect
from another and therefore, the dance's
beauty lies in each performer's per-
sonal interpretation.
Dances for a New Space is a
collaboration of some of the Dance
Department's finest talent.DThe
choreography shows a well-developed
knolwdge of space, movement, and
theme development, and is a very good
representation of the discipline and
creativity of University dancers.'
