Carol Soleau, an Associate Professor of dance at OSU, has been the founder and artistic director of Oregon Dance for over three decades. Her new works include two modern jazz dances, one of which, "Dirty Laundry", portrays a racy view of floundering relationships.

Set to the sultry tune of "Harlem Nocturne", Maryam Baghdadi and Sean Carrigg capriciously perform in "Can we Dance?" This piece explores the etiquette associated with Ballroom Dance Competitions.

Ms. Soleau is also reviving two of her vintage works.

"Transmutation" (1989) set to Robert Campbell's commissioned score, has been rechoreographed on Claire Skach, a former national rhythmic gymnast.

"Eve of the Marriage" (1983) is a lyrical commentary on arranged marriages from women's perspectives.

Carol has also received permission to reset "Isle" (1984) choreographed by her brother, Willliam Soleau. This critically acclaimed duet to the music of Henry Purcell has been set on several national and international ballet companies. Its timeless purity of movement is a treat to share with Corvallis audiences.

Guest performers are OSU's Vietnamese dance club, and selected students from LBCC who will add jazz and hip-hop to the concert.

The concert is sponsored by the School of Biological and Population Sciences, the College of Public Health and Human Sciences, the OSU Foundation, and the Alonzo and Jennie Bonsal Foundation.
