X Dance at Emerson

This weekend, Emerson Stage’s annual production of X-Dance will grace the stage of the Greene Theater. The show runs for approximately an hour and 15 minutes, and is comprised of dance pieces conceived completely by student choreographers.

Under the artistic direction of professor Marlena Yanetti, student choreographers Skyler Grossman, Emily Geaman, Ryan Ziegler, Audrey Struck, and Carly Jurman have choreographed and directed dance pieces that will be performed by an ensemble of Emerson’s most skilled dancers.

The show premieres tonight at 8 p.m. in the Greene Theater. Performances run from this evening through the weekend; Friday, Feb. 11 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 13 at 2 p.m.

There will be a discussion with the cast and crew following the Saturday and Sunday matinee performance. Tickets are available at the Emerson box office for $8, and students are encouraged to purchase tickets prior to the performances, as tickets are expected to sell out.
