'People Dancing'

Boat to Hong Kong." She has no
qualms about innovation. In fact,
she thrives on it and ow her
company's success to her
uninhibited style and her ability
to conceive pieces that elicit
laughs from grateful and
delighted audiences.
Setrakian's life hasn't always
held room for the offbeat and often
times irreverent style she favors.
A graduate of New York's famouk
High School for the Performing
Arts and a former student of the
prestigious Joffrey Ballet and
Alvin Ailey schools, she also
holds a degree from the U-M
Dance Department, where she
currently teaches modern dance
for non-majors. "They call me a
'visiting adjunct lecturer,'" says
Setrakian.
In 1983 she founded People
Dancing and began to adapt her
rather austere training to suit her
own flamboyant, dramatic, and
even comic, style. This
adaptation yields the stunning
repertoire of pieces that aim to
please everyone from the serious
dance patron to the casual and
curious enthusiast.
Tomorrow night's perfor -
mance, at 8 p.m., will include the
premiere of "Slow Boat to Hong
Kong," "Annapurna," a repertory

piece refreshed and rescored by a
new composer, and
"Ferretworks," another repertory
piece never before performed on
the Lydia Mendelssohn stage.
It's an awe-inspiring program
that promises to impress, amuse,
and delight.
...Break's over and it's back
to work. The company's two men
and four women resume their
places on the miniscule studio
floor. There's a ao-your-own-
thing-within-reason attitude
floating about. "Jeannette, are
you the back apex of the triangle?"
Setrakian inquires of one of the
dancers. They raid each other's
seltzer water supply as they dart
about the floor perfecting their
timing and execution.
Setrakian's husband, fellow
company member David Genson
takes five to change baby Sam's
diaper. Amidst this apparent
chaos, People Dancing will
undoubtedly construct a most
witty and enchanting program.

Legendary entertainer Lou Rawls will be performing tonight at Hill
Auditorium. The show is especially meaningful -because Ann Arbor
.Mayor Ed Pierce has proclaimed today "Lou Rawls Day" in honor of the
singer's achievements in the areas of entertainment and higher
-education.
