Fine Arts students and Colombian dance troupe mix cultures

Theatre and Dance students share experiences and culture with Colombian dance troupe El Colegio del Cuerpo.

This collaboration between the Department of Theatre and Dance, Texas Performing Arts and El Colegio del Cuerpo involves a project called "Canción del Cuerpo" ("Song of the Body"). Five dancers from The University of Texas at Austin and five Colombian dancers from El Colegio are working together as part of the annual spring concert of the department's Dance Repertory Theatre.

The project also involves collaboration among students in the department's Costume Design, Scenic Design and Stage Management programs and the technical staff at El Colegio. Leading the effort are Professor Lyn Wiltshire of the Department of Theatre and Dance and El Colegio's Co-Director Álvaro Restrepo.
