Sexe, Stewart to perform shared concert, 'Crossing Between' on April 28

April 26, 2018
UW-Madison's Collette Stewart and Liz Sexe will present the shared concert, "Crossing Between," on Saturday, April 28. 

Stewart and Sexe are lecturers with the School of Education's Dance Department. 

Sexe will be presenting a reworking of "-ment," a group work with original music by Timothy Russell. The piece is about becoming, and titled "-ment" because it is a suffix added to a verb to make it a noun. In other words, an action that can be come grounded in a concrete form. The dancers for this rendition include Allison Hales Espeseth, Molly Hodgson, Lyndsay Lewis, Ryann Marlar and Emily Schultz who have added many more textures and layers. 

Stewart is premiering "The Circumstance of Life and Death," a new group work. In the piece, Stewart succinctly lays out an abridged creation story, highlighting the evolutionary road humans have taken in an attempt to assuage our natural fear of death. Broadly inspired by the Buddhist concept of the Bardo --  the time spent between death and rebirth -- Stewart explores the immaterial in a manner that is comedic, serious, and reliably uncertain.

Stewart and Sexe will perform "Crossing Between" on Saturday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m. at The Crossing. Tickets can be pre-ordered online at or can be purchased for $10 at the door. Seating is limited.
