Dance Gala 2019 celebrates its 38th anniversary with “In Motion,” featuring new work created by University of Iowa Department of Dance faculty and guest artists from Urban Bush Women, a dance company that encourages civic engagement and social accountability through art. The program also will include an appearance by the UI’s enigmatic Laptop Orchestra. While Dance Gala works often include cross-collaborations, Jennifer Kayle and Daniel Fine’s piece, “(dis)APPEAR(d)ances,” is pushing boundaries in dance, digital media and music, by playing with how media affects experiences of presence and absence.
