Following further rehearsals this month by the Avid for Ovid group, an evening of dance and music performance based on interpretations of Ovid’s Metamorphoses will be shown at the Al Jaber Auditorium at Corpus Christi College on 28th August. This is the latest event in the collaboration between academics and artists of Ancient Dance in Modern Dancers (ADMD) and Avid for Ovid (A4O) exploring the nature of ancient Roman pantomime.
Metamorphoses – dance interpretations of the poetry of Ovid is a showing of work-in-progress; it will involve audience participation in that we will be asking for your feedback. We are eager to find out what audiences see in the pieces and how we might improve the communicability of the dance form we’re (re)creating. Your comments will be precious to both the artists and the academics involved.
Dance: Ségolène Tarte, Susie Crow
Music: Malcolm Atkins
Performance: Thursday 28th August 2014, 6.30pm
Venue: Al Jaber Auditorium, Corpus Christi College, Merton Street, Oxford OX1 4JF
