Dancing into fall

September 11, 1997|By Judith Green

Towson Ensemble Dancers, a professional company of faculty and alumni of Towson University's dance department, will kick off the Baltimore Museum of Art's fall performance series with a program of mixed repertory performed twice (3 p.m. and 8 p.m.) Saturday.

Jaye Knutson will offer two works of her own and perform the solo "Two Ecstatic Themes: Circular Descent and Pointed Ascent" (1931) by the American modern dance pioneer Doris Humphrey. Knutson reconstructed Humphrey's work from Labanotation, a recording system for choreography.

Also on the program is Christina Sears' "Off Sides," a dance parody of "Alice in Wonderland"; a dance improvisation to video; and a solo by pianist Sandra Lee Manning.

Tickets are $15 general, $12 museum members, $10 seniors and students. Call 410-235-0100. The museum is at North Charles and 31st streets, near Johns Hopkins University.
