UW Theatre And Dance Presents ‘Wonderland’
Nov 12 – Nov 17 all-day

The University of Wyoming Department of Theatre and Dance will present a vertical dance retelling of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass.”

“Wonderland: Alice’s Adventures in Three-Dimensional Space” will run Tuesday, Nov. 12, through Saturday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts Thrust Theatre.

Tickets cost $14 for the public, $11 for senior citizens and $7 for students. Tickets are available at the Performing Arts box office and the Wyoming Union information desk, by calling (307) 766-6666 or going online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts.

The dance features a multimedia experience and dancers, actors and singers who chart Alice’s journey to understand who she is and where she fits in with her family and the world.

UW Department of Theatre and Dance Professor Margaret Wilson and UW Department of Geology and Geophysics Professor Neil Humphrey, who instituted the vertical dance program at UW and choreograph and rig all vertical dance performances, were scheduled for a full production in fall 2019.

They wanted to produce a concert in the Thrust Theatre, an innovative space for vertical dance. Scenic designer Scott Tedmon-Jones suggested “Alice in Wonderland” as a possible project. Also joining the project were composer and lyricist Sean Warren Stone; lighting and projection designer Jason Banks; and dramaturg Patrick Konesko.

Wilson, who directs and choreographs the project, says “Wonderland” is a “celebration of everything we do in live performance.”

“This production combines original movement, music, sets, projections and costumes, and well-loved books for children and adults alike in a live theatrical performance,” she adds. “We are working to create a world of chaos and confusion, of Alice seeking — and finding — identity and agency, while we contribute to the eternal question, ‘Whose dream was it anyway?’”

Building on one another’s input and expertise, while exploring new technologies, has allowed the team members expanded opportunities for creative growth.

“As an exciting new collaboration, we are working with the Shell 3D Visualization Center in the UW School of Energy Resources on campus to develop the opportunity for patrons to experience the world of Wonderland through virtual reality headsets before the performance and during the intermission,” Wilson says.

Kyle Summerfield, an assistant research scientist in the School of Energy Resources, has developed the immersive experience, directed by Emma-Jane Alexander, manager of the center.

“The performance will have a little something for everyone, from becoming part of an immersive environment created by both technology and performers to reconnecting with a well-known story in a novel way to hearing original new music and ‘Jabberwocky’ translated,” Wilson says. “Come see how it all comes together.”

UW Happy Jacks & UW Singing Statesmen Perform Together
Nov 14 @ 7:30 pm

For the first time, both University of Wyoming men’s singing groups — the Singing Statesmen and the Happy Jacks — will perform at the same concert.

“I Have Wings,” conducted by UW Department of Music Professor Nicole Lamartine, will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall.

Tickets cost $10 for the public, $7 for senior citizens and $6 for students. Tickets are available at the Performing Arts box office and the Wyoming Union information desk, by calling (307) 766-6666 or by going online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts.

The UW Singing Statesmen will present traditional songs, including a setting of Mary Coleridge’s poem “When I Hear Her, I Have Wings”; a new arrangement of “Shenandoah”; and “Mattinata,” an old Italian song made famous by tenor Luciano Pavarotti.

The UW Singing Statesmen is a non-auditioned male choir representing a wide variety of backgrounds and academic disciplines. The men are brought together by the distinct brotherhood and camaraderie of male ensemble singing, Lamartine says. The ensemble promotes the rich tradition of male singing through school clinics and collaborations.

The UW Singing Statesmen have received prestigious invitations to the 2012 Northwest American Choral Directors Association conference, the Wyoming Music Educators conference, and have had four collaborations with the Jackson-based Bar J Wranglers and the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra.

The Happy Jacks will entertain the audience with pop and contemporary tunes. The student-led male a cappella group is composed of select members of the Statesmen and is well known for its performances of contemporary music.

Lamartine is director of choral activities at UW, leading the Collegiate Chorale, the Singing Statesmen and the Happy Jacks. She also teaches conducting and studio voice.

Her choirs have performed at several national and regional conferences, and she is a recognized expert in females conducting male choirs. An active performer, she has sung with Conspirare, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale and Colorado Bach Ensemble.

For more information, call Lamartine at (307) 288-0042 or email choir@uwyo.edu.
