As St. Louis' first professional contemporary-jazz dance company, the Big Muddy Dance Company
strives to make our lives more interesting through dance. To close out its fourth season, the group presents Rejuvenate
, a concert that features not one, not two, but three premieres. For the choreographers of each of those works, that's like writing and editing a short story, or filling a canvas with artistic visions, or composing and perfecting a tune -- in other words, it's a tremendous amount of work -- and you have just one evening to catch them all! We're guessing that not only will you be engaged during the performances, but also that the dancers' pieces will live up to the show's title, bringing some late-spring revitalization into your life as well. Rejuvenate
is performed at 8 p.m. tonight at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949 or www.touhill.org
). Tickets are $22 to $25.
