Saturday, October 14, 2023, 2:00 pm

Presented in collaboration with the International Writing Program and Department of Dance  

Part of Hancher's Infinite Dream festival

 Writers from the annual International Writing Program (IWP) fall residency will provide written texts as inspiration for University of Iowa dance students to choreograph new work, resulting in a performance at Infinite Dream. This longstanding collaboration between the IWP and Dance explores interdisciplinary practices across literature and movement and, over the years, has become an annual tradition at the University of Iowa. Dance faculty member Christopher-Rasheem McMillan will steward this remarkable collaboration as part of The Contemporary Dance Scene fall course—exposing students, visiting writers, and our overall community to the breadth, tensions, and joys of the creative process.  

  FREE and OPEN to the public  

General admission seating begins at 1:30 p.m.
