REED COLLEGE DANCE CONCERT TO FEATURE GUEST CHOREOGRAPHER

Reed College's dance department will present its spring student concert, featuring choreography by Reed students and guest choreographer Gregg Bielemeier, on Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5, at 8 p.m. in the Reed theater. Tickets are $1 for members of the Reed community and $4 general admission. For more information, call the Reed events line at 503/777-7755.

Gregg Bielemeier, a prominent Portland dancer, has choreographed a dance to be performed by Reed students. Bielemeier has received wide acclaim for his work with Conduit, Portland's modern dance collective, and with his company, the Gregg Bielemeier Dance Project. Willamette Week called Bielemeier's 1999 piece Odd Duck Lake "a mix of sharp and soft action and response [that] results in an expression of experience that is not always emotionally comfortable to watch but is conceptually, visually, and kinesthetically dynamic."
