Washington University Dance Theatre: 'Return'

Edison Theatre
6465 Forsyth, St. Louis, Missouri 63105

“It is most unusual to return to a place that has changed in ways you yourself have altered.” --Nelson Mandela
“Come back to yourself. Return to the voice of your body. Trust that much.” -- Geneen Roth

After the year of “lockdown” where social and event spaces became entirely virtual, we gained a new appreciation for communities of people gathering in person to witness and share experiences. Live performance generates palpable sensations of authentic presence that only being with others can bring. Join us for the return of Washington University Dance Theatre to the Edison Theater and experience the art of human movement, and its power to bring us back together again.

This annual concert dance showcase features diverse and creative choreography by resident and guest artists, performed by select student dancers of the Performing Arts Department.

Artistic Direction by David Marchant

December 3 & 4 at 8 p.m.
December 5 at 2 p.m.
Edison Theatre
