SSwiss 'Saire' returns to campus by leaps and bounds

By LIZ SHAW
In a much anticipated return visit,
the Philippe Saire Dance Company of
Switzerland descends on the Power
Center for one night of celebrated
European dance theater. Especially
intriguing is the presentation of their
new piece "Vacarme," which is
loosely inspired by the apocalyptic
image of the eclipse in the Middle
Ages.
Much of the excitement of the
'We don't get to see
much European
dancing in Ann Arbor,
but there's a lot going
on over there.'
- Jessica Fogel,
Dance Department
troupe's visit surrounds the availabil-
ity of such an internationally known
company to come to campus for the
second time in two years.
"We don't get to see much Euro-
pean dancing in Ann Arbor, but there's
a lot going on over there, and that is
mostly because of (German dancer/
choreographer) Pina Bausch," said
Jessica Fogel of the Dance Depart-
ment.
The five-member troupe concen-
trates on physically demanding cho-
reography and a lot of repetition as a
means of getting their point across.
They base many pieces on relation-

"Much of their work is based on
the power of this woman's work,"
Fogel said, "and while their composi-
tions show a great deal of her influ-
ence, they have very much conceived
their own structures."
This is the Saire Company's sec-
ond visit through the Dance Depart-
ment. On their first visit they pre-
sented an original interpretation of
Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's
Dream" in which they highlighted the
more contemporary and physical as-
pects of the play, and followed a more
general theme of manipulation in

male-female relationships.
"The ideas of the piece were so
clear, but held a mystery and wit that
was very compelling. They are truly
inspiring," commented Fogel.
This is the first offering of the
department's sixth annual Guest Art-
ist Series. Next month's guest, Heidi
Durning, is another international art-
ist who is also a University alum of
the MFA program.
PHILIPPE SAIRE DANCE COM-
PANY will perform at 8 p.m. Friday
at Mendelssohn Theatre. Tickets
are $10 and $6. Call 764-0450.
