Jin-Wen Yu Dance and UW–Madison’s Dance Department are presenting “Page,” an evening of thought-provoking and visually stimulating contemporary dance.

Shows run Sept. 12-14 at Lathrop Hall’s Margaret H'Doubler Performance Space.

This concert features Yu’s choreography spanning from 2016 to the present, including works that have been performed nationally and internationally at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland, in New York at the DUMBO Dance Festival, American Dance Guild, and the SoloDuo Dance Festival, and at the Asia-Pacific Dance Festival in Honolulu, Hawaii. Yu is a professor with the School of Education’s Dance Department.

The first half of the concert will feature sections of Yu's previous ensemble and solo works including a quartet titled “Paging into the Realm of Imagination," and the solo “Letters of a Traveler." The second half features Yu’s new choreography, which addresses perspectives on aging, identity, and social conflict.

Performances will be held Sept. 12 and 13 at 8 p.m., and Sept. 14 at 2:30 p.m. in the Margaret H’Doubler Performance Space, Lathrop Hall.
