Colorado Mesa University’s Department of Theatre Arts will present Discovering Me: the Fall Dance Concert on November 15 and 16 in the Moss Performing Arts Center Robinson Theatre. The concert is an embodied exploration focusing on unpacking, disentangling and understanding the multiplicity and uniqueness of the self. Featuring diverse original works from faculty, guest artist and selected student choreographers, the concert offers an insight into how we present, define and represent ourselves as individuals. 

Guest choreographer Bailey Anderson is in residence at CMU October 20-24 and her work will be presented on the Robinson stage during the concert. Anderson is an activist, artist, scholar and teacher who has explored disability and choreography as a part of her work. She is currently working on a project funded through the New York Public Library's Short-Term Research Fellowship entitled "Disability Aesthetics in Early Modern Dance."

Faculty works by Amanda Benzin, James Wallace and Gabriele Cahill will also be presented along with selected student works by dance majors Brandon Sutorius, Natalie Schievelbein, and Kathyrine Zebarth.

Discovering Me will be presented at 7:30pm on November 15 and at 2 and 7:30pm on November 16. Tickets are $16 for adults, $13 for seniors and $7 for students and are available online.
