on't get too excited; it doesn't
inean that there is nudity involved. It
means that all five of the choreogra-
jhers are "thirty-something" and
ave already had successful careers.
eter Sparling, chairman of the
nce department says, "This con-
ert represents a new trend in
lasters work. We are attracting
lancers who have already worked
rofessionally, and are now coming
ack for their degrees."
What this means for the artists is
at they have a richer repertory to
work from, a variety of technical
d stylistic traditions under their
lt, and that they have found their
ersonal voices as choreographers
d dancers. What it means for an
udience is more seasoned, polished
d refined choreography with the
eight of history and the breath of
he future in it.
Aside from Sparling, who is per-
orming two works, all of the artists
re graduate students of dance.

ecently performed in their MFA

re second-year graduate students.

Maureen Janson (first year) and
Gina Buntz (first semester) are being
featured, for the first time as chore-
ographers in a University produc-
tion.
Lilly and Caligaris will perform a
duet which they co-choreographed,
titled "Gather 'Round." The piece,
set to a collage score including
original material and children's
game songs, focuses on their friend-
ship and the interaction of their
"child" selves.
"(The dance) is about the ghosts
of childhood. Of course there is
some sadness there, but also a play-
ful quality," Caligaris says.
Lilly expands on this, saying,
"It's like listening to children play-
ing games outside your window
which you once played yourself."
Lilly will also be performing two
solos: "Needle in the Haystack,"
which she performed earlier this
year at Performance Network, and
"Glacial Milk," which Lilly recently
presented at her MFA Thesis con-
cert.
Sparling will be presenting
modern dance pioneer Jose Limon's
legendary solo, "Chaconne." Cho-
reographed in 1942, the piece marks

Hollywood gets played like a
sucker in maverick director Robert
Altman's acclaimed new satire, The
Player, which will be screened
tonight at 7:30 at the Michigan
Theater in a special gala pre-release
benefit. The film stars Tim Robbins
as an ambitious producer who begins
to receive threatening postcards from
an irate rejected screenwriter.
According to advance reviews,
Altman brilliantly skewers The
Industry in his multi-leveled movie
about making movies, which also
features cameos from over 60
celebrities (playing themselves), in-
cluding Cher, John Cusack, Elliott
Gould, Nick Nolte, Burt Reynolds,
Lily Tomlin and the Incredible
Bruce Willis. The director - whose
previous films include M*A *S*H
and Vincent & Theo - is currently
working on an opera with University
School of Music professor William
Bolcom. The proceeds from
tonight's benefit go toward the
Michigan Theater and the University
Art Museum; tickets are $12.50 ($10
for members), available in advance
at the Michigan Theater Box Office.

The Department of Film and
Video Studies is sponsoring the an-
nual Senior Film and Video Show,
a free screening of works by
graduating seniors. Featured in the
show will be "Can You See" by the
Daily's own Richard Davis, and co-
starring Weekend etc. editor Julie
Komorn. The show - which will
include works made in video, 16mm

and Super 8 - takes place on
Friday, May 1, in Angell Hall Aud

the Dresden State Orchestra
(Staatskapelle to be pretentious).
One of the world's oldest and most
distinguished orchestras, the Dres-
den will present a program featuring
Beethoven's Symphony No.7, "The
Pastoral" in Hill Auditorium on
Thursday April 8 p.m. The show
also includes the youthfully exuber-
ant Don Juan and the brooding
Death and Transfiguration by Ri-
chard Strauss. As a testament to their
standing and longevity, the orchestra
has premiered many of the major
works of Wagner and Strauss and
has been led by such major con-
ductors as Karajan, Reiner and
Abbado. Tickets range from $18 to
$45 at the University Musical
Society. Rush tickets go on sale at
10 am on Thursday. Call 764-2538.
OK, we've been working on our
JFK assassination theory and we've
concluded that there was definitely a
conspiracy involving the CIA, cer-
tain shifty members of the cabinet,
the Krispy Kreme Donut Company
and of course, Lyndon Baines
Johnson. To find out what LBJ was
really up to when he said, "Naw, you
don't need that ol' bullet-proof bub-
ble, Jack," rush to Lyndon starring
Laurence Luckinbill at the Michigan
Theater. Rush tickets will go on sale
today for $10. Get 'em at the
Michigan Theater box office be-
tween 11 and 6. It'll give you a rush.

Sparling, who was with the Jose

1973, feels that "Chaconne" repre-

that, "Limon contains (in "Cha-

University of Michigan
esbian Gay Bisexual
Faculty Alance
After months of discussion, a university-wide group of faculty and deans has
decided to form the University of Michigan Lesbian Gay Bisexual Faculty Alliance, or
UMLGBFA. Those of us with same sex orientations are largely invisible. Personally,
socially, and politically, one of the most important first actions for us is making people
aware of our presence.
Lesbian, gay, and bisexual persons have been members of the Michigan faculty
and administration for many years--indeed, since the university was founded. In
announcing the formation of this organization, we are taking that first step toward
greater visibility among our colleagues and students. By making our voices heard, we
seek to involve ourselves more fully in university and community affairs.
We intend to speak out and act on issues that concern staff and students with
same-sex orientations. The Report on the Status of Lesbians, Gays, and Bisexuals at the
University of Michigan provides an excellent basis for discussion and change. It deals
with such issues as harassment in the residence halls, access for our domestic partners
to the same health and housing benefits already available to "married" persons, and the
failure of the regents to include sexual orientation in their non-discrimination by-law.
We intend also to encourage the full implementation of the university's current non-
discrimination policy.
As a long-range goal, we will devote our attention to curriculum development.
Despite the creation of academic programs for lesbian and gay studies at numerous
major universities across the country, we at Michigan have only begun to discuss the
possibilities. We seek to engage in an on-going and constructive dialogue on these issues
with the university administration and with other organizations in this community.
A more immdeiate objective concerns the needs of new faculty. As part of our
broader effort to create a more supportive atmosphere for all gay, lesbian, and bisexual
persons at Michigan, we will host a UMLGBFA reception at the beginning of the year.
In addition, we plan to incorporate information about the existence of our organization
in the orientation package new and prospective faculty members receive from the
university.
The names appearring below represent only a partial list of our membership.
That all our members' names do not appear reflects the risks that some of us continue
to perceive in being identified as lesbians, bisexuals, and gays in this community. While
offering a safe haven for these individuals by protecting their anonymity, we also will
strive to overcome their need to remain anonymous.
