From The Crimson White: Alabama Repertory Dance Theatre has begun its week-long spring performance, made up of five acts individually directed by a member of the UA Dance and Theatre Department. The show began Tuesday in the Morgan Hall auditorium.
Qianping Guo, an assistant professor of dance, is one of the five choreographers with a piece in the event. Guo’s piece, first in the line-up, is a 45-minute condensed version of Don Quixote, with different elements intertwined. Guo said he mostly stuck to the original story but added a mental hospital, which does not appear in the original production, as well as elements of humor.
