The University of Calgary has proudly offered regular seasons of dance, drama, and music events for many years. Featuring international and professional talents alongside those found within our student body and faculty, the University of Calgary offers professional quality events at a fraction of the price of many comparable companies in the city.
Not only are performing arts events at the University of Calgary affordable — as a research university, our events serve as an invaluable part of the education of each student within the performing arts faculties. Having a full, diverse audience present at these events helps the students in their development as tomorrow's professional performing artists.
Dance@Night 2013 featured a choreographic work by one of Canada's most influential dance artists, Peggy Baker. Unfold premiered in New York City in 2000. The Dance@Night 2013 version included excerpts from the full work, reconstructed by the 45 performers and then coached by Peggy Baker herself.
