UCLA Department of World Arts and Culture/Dance presents “un/ending,” a choreographic showcase exploring themes of cycles and transitions, by twelve graduating Dance Majors

Friday, May 12th, 7:30 PM

Saturday, May 13th, 2 PM

UCLA’s Glorya Kaufman Dance Theater

120 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90095

Paid parking is available in UCLA Lot 4. Enter campus from Sunset Blvd, at Westwood Plaza.

un/ending showcases twelve unique dance works, each choreographed by a member of the Class of 2023, including:

Emma-Rose Allen

Gina Basile

Monique Berber

Carmen Casillas

Sophie Fouladi

Amane Hirano

Sophia Lin

Jacqueline Pierce

Mary Sweetnam

Marimar Lopez Tovar

May Yates

Serving as both poignant reflection and joyful celebration, these carefully-crafted compositions represent a culmination of learning and achievement at UCLA.

As the cohort enters the final weeks of their undergraduate education, they invite you to witness their choreographic creations – a ceremony that is not a final bow, but instead a recognition of all that is to come: a lifelong performance that is un/ending.

Arrive early to the performance to preview an artistic gallery located in the theater, composed of graphic representations of each dance piece. A reception in the Kaufman Courtyard will follow Saturday’s matinee performance. Light refreshments will be provided, as well as the opportunity to speak with the performers and choreographers!
