SOFTWARE BUG – please be advised that there is a software bug with The Events Calendar plugin affecting ONLY reoccuring events at different times on the same day. While displaying correctly, the links may only go to only  one time for the event listed for that day. We have been told the developer is working on this but no ETA has been provided for when it will be fixed. A temporary solution is to enter events separately vs using multiple event tool.

Boyer College of Music and Dance – Oh no! Renegade

October 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 – $20
Oh no! Renegade

Boyer College of Music and Dance, Institute for Dance Scholarship presents the Reflection:Response Choreographic Commission 2022
Oh no! Renegade

This new piece by MEI-BE WHATever/Mei-Yin Ng uses popular dance moves from TikTok as sources of inspiration and investigation. This site-specific work reinterprets these dances in locations in and around the theater at Temple University. Live movement will combine with pre-recorded footage to create performances that are both on-screen and back-screen, showing how and what happens beside and behind the camera. By looking deeply at the elements that make these Tik Tok dances so popular, Ng digs into the similarities and differences that underlie popular and “high” arts. The result is a crafted study of dance and technology, and of intimate and public spaces.

Internationally acclaimed Malaysian choreographer and media artist Mei-Yin Ng is drawn to create art using the human body and technology. Her background in post-modern and Chinese dance inspired her to meditate on the use of props, and later technology, as an extension of the human form. In 2002, she founded MEI-BE WHATever, in New York City, as a collective field for collaboration and experimentation of dance and technology, performing at festivals, museums and theatres in the US, Asia, Europe, North and South America.

The Reflection:Response Choreographic Commission, curated by Merián Soto, includes a cash award and access to rehearsal space at Temple University throughout summer 2022. Past commission recipients include Laura Peterson, Charles O. Anderson, Tatyana Tennenbaum, Jennifer Weber, Kathy Westwater, Lela Aisha Jones|Flyground, Awilda Sterling-Duprey, Marion Ramírez, and Mark Wong (Metal).
