to experience U2 through dance
Dancespace at California State University, Sacramento will come
alive to the sounds of the rock band U2 on Friday, Nov. 1 when Dale
Scholl Dance/Art opens its 21st season. Additional performances
of "The U2 Experience: Take 3" will be Saturday, Nov.
2, and Thursdays through Saturdays, Nov. 7-9, 14-16, and 21-23.
All performances begin at 8 p.m. in Solano Hall 1010.
"The U2 Experience: Take 3" is the third iteration of
Dale Scholl Dance/Art's tribute to the powerful music of U2. This
new show features three new works by choreographers Dale Scholl,
Joseph Candelaria and Jonathan Cameron. Songs used in the program
range from early to modern U2, including "Tomorrow" off
the band's 1981 album October, to "Beautiful Day" from
their 2000 release All That You Can't Leave Behind.
Scholl's contribution, "That One Beautiful Day," offers
a quirky blend of movement and music designed around the never-ending
search for the meaning of life. "Pride" is choreographer
Candelaria's reflection on the tragic events of Sept. 11 set to
some of U2's most moving and memorable songs. Cameron's "May
" examines the many facets of love through
movement and song.
Also in the program is "Torch of the Revolution" by choreographer
Sunny Smith. This work has appeared in both previous versions of
"The U2 Experience" and is a powerful reflection on war.
'The U2 Experience: Take 3' is our way of saying thank you for the
music. Thank you for the lyrics," says Dale Scholl, artistic
director of Dale Scholl Dance/Art. "U2's messages are so beautiful.
We hope that we express what they are saying in their music through
