The Dance Department presents
Kusika & CoDa
Dance and Music
Spring Concert
May 6 & 7 | 7 PM | MainStage | $3
Come celebrate dance at Williams with a “double the fun” spring concert featuring faculty-led Dance Department ensembles Kusika and CoDa in a robust shared program. African dance, music, and storytelling traditions old and new, from the continent and Diaspora, are woven throughout the works offered by Kusika, co-directed by Sandra Burton and Tendai Muparutsa. The performance will close with “Mbakumba,” a traditional Zimbabwean dance staged by guest artist Kunukai Chigamba. CoDa, co-directed by Erica Dankmeyer and Janine Parker, will present two pieces with choreography steeped in contemporary, modern, and ballet genres. “Never Let Me Go,” set to music by Scott Joplin, will be played live by Department accompanist John Sauer; the ensemble will also perform a collaborative dance co-choreographed by four Williams/CoDa alums.
