Twenty Years with Love, Bowen McCauley Dance

Live music, poetry, and dance will fill the stage for Bowen McCauley Dance's 20th anniversary concert. The program features a virtuosic solo danced to the music of Juilliard professor and composer Michael White; a moving exploration of human connections performed to a live violin solo of a work by J.S. Bach; and the highly anticipated world premiere of Ars Amatoria, a playful interpretation of ancient Roman poet Ovid's three-book "instructional" writings about the arts of seduction and love. Ars Amatoria features a commissioned score by Larry Alan Smith, an award-winning composer, performer, and poet in his own right.

Performance Timing: Part One - 20 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 50 min.
