The Cottey College Department of Dance and the Cottey-in-Motion Dance Company will present Red Riding Hood: A Dance of Identity on November 16-18. The curtain will rise at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, November 16-17, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 18. Performances will be in the Auditorium of the Haidee and Allen Wild Center for the Arts.
This non-narrative look at the classic tale of Red Riding Hood explores the idea that all the characters are aspects of Red’s personality. As she makes her way into the unknown future, she looks for her identity—is she her past? Is she her ancestors (Grandmother)? Is she her desires, what she wants (Wolf)? Is she all these things and more? Choreography is by Jenna Wurtzberger, Jo Byrnes, and the dancers of the Cottey-in-Motion Dance Company.
The performance is free and no tickets are required.
The Center for the Arts is on the northeast corner of Austin and Tower streets in Nevada, Missouri.
