CSUS to experience U2 through dance

The 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 Your Dreams…" 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 movement."

Tickets are $16 general, $13 students and seniors and $8 child (12 years and under). Tickets are available at the CSUS Central Ticket Office, (916) 278-4323 or online at For additional media assistance contact CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
