UCSB Dance Company presents

Full Circle Redux

May 25 – 26, 2023

Just returned from their European Tour, the UCSB Dance Company offers Full Circle Redux, a fresh look at the Full Circle concert which premiered in March at the Hatlen Theater. The program of seven female choreographers, all with circular ties to the Department of Theater and Dance, over a fully rounded span of years. The program includes three commissioned works for the UCSB Dance Company, with two composers creating original music and four remounting of successful works.

The roster of choreographers includes Christina McCarthy, a graduate of the department and now a multi-disciplinary artist and faculty member at UCSB; Nancy Colahan, a former professional dancer, beloved choreographer, and recently retired faculty member; Danah Bella, a graduate of the department, now Professor and Chair of Dance at John Hopkins Peabody Institute; Weslie Ching, a UCSB graduate and an independent choreographer in Santa Barbara; Gianna Burright, a UCSB graduate, is most recently a 2023 Carmel Dance Festival Choreography Fellow; Madison Olandt, a guest choreographer from Los Angeles, co-choreographed a work for the UCSB Dance Company last season and returns to create a new work on the female and non-binary comprised company; Amanda Tran received her BFA in Choreography and Performance from UCSB and now lives and works in LA. A broad spectrum of human sensibility, seen through the lens of these female choreographers, promises to entice the senses and the mind through prisms of intelligence, insight, and beauty.
