The Moody Center for the Arts at the James Turrell "Twilight Epiphany" Skyspace at Rice University will host a special dance performance choreographed by Karole Armitage. Seating is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.

This public event celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Skyspace at Rice and features original choreography by the Artistic Director of the New York-based Armitage Gone! Dance Company. Trained in classical ballet, Armitage began her professional career as a member of the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève, Switzerland (1973-1975), a company devoted exclusively to the repertory of George Balanchine, the Artistic Director of the company at that time. In 1976, she was invited to join Merce Cunningham's company, where she remained for five years, (1975-1981) performing leading roles in Cunningham's landmark works. Through her unique and acute knowledge of the aesthetic values of Balanchine and Cunningham, Armitage has created her own "voice" in the dichotomy of classical and modern dance and is seen by some critics as the true choreographic heir to the two masters of 20th century American dance.
