UH Goes to the MATCH

 

Houston, TX- University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts School of Theatre & Dance presents “UH Goes to the MATCH” on Sunday, February 23, 2020. “UH Goes to the MATCH” consists of an eclectic night of dance produced, choreographed, and performed by UH School of Theatre & Dance students.

 

UH Dance currently features a large group of graduating students that have already begun to hit the Houston stages professionally, both as choreographers and performers. Their works have proven to span a large range of controversial topics, such a non-conforming identities, abuse, depression, and LGBTQ culture, and have been as diverse as traditional stage dance, dance for film, and integrated dance and technology.  Two of these seniors are Ninfa Ruby Leal and Trevonne Fedrick.  Leal, whose work was recently chosen to represent UH Dance at the upcoming American College Dance Association conference, shares that her new work is based on the idea of femininity versus masculinity.  Leal demonstrates how identity is found within; past the standard dichotomy of male vs. female. “The movement sequences seek to break societal labels and the toxic idealism of following stereotypical gender roles,” notes Leal, “Identity comes from each individual’s belief of what makes them unique and how they establish who they are.” Trevonne Fredrick explains that her choreography is based on her cultural roots and life experiences, “Reclaim is about taking back power, about being able to release and express without care of societal judgement and expectations. It is a high energy, soulful piece representing unity by connecting dancers with each other and with the music.”
