Idaho Dance Theatre: Dance Deconstructed

Saturday, November 8


Dance is mysterious. It's a medium used tell a story, express ideas or pay homage to tradition, but the message isn't always immediately apparent to the viewer. Understanding the motivation behind a dance doesn't negate its beauty or emotional impact--it often enhances both. Idaho Dance Theatre hopes to heighten the experience of dance with Dance Deconstructed, a free opportunity for audiences to watch "selections of repertory and improvisation, including West African dance and hip-hop," and then through interaction with the dancers and a Q&A, gain a deeper understanding--and possibly a greater appreciation--of the artform.
