Transcript Dane e UH joins Rice in celehrating the opening or its new Humanities Building Dance students at the University of Houston collaborated in a unique program with Rice University dancers to dedicate the new Humanities Building on the Rice campus in October. The association of dancers performed a series of singular dance routines titled Open Book/Open House, created and directed by internationally known choreographer Stephan Koplowitz. Koplowitz is a virtuoso at creating large- scale events for architectural sites. Hes been producing site specific choreography for 14 years in the United States and Europe. His resume includes unrivaled concepts for the British Library and the Natural History Museum in London, England and the Grand Central Station in New York City. Koplowitz was awarded a 1999-2000 "Bessie," a New York Dance and Performance Award, for sustained achievement in choreography. Koplowitz offers the public a new perspective of a structure through the mediums of light, costume, people and movement. "I draw upon the physical site itself, how its designed. The history of the site and how the structure will be used is also instrumental!' Koplowitz said. "My work is purely visual, but it also deals with themes that deal with the context!' Karen Stokes, director of the UH dance Dancers christen the lobby of the Humanities Building with an oriental themed choreography. Photo hv Pin Lim By: loni Carpenter program, assisted Koplowitz in this union of dance programs. Stokes has assisted Koplowitz on numerous projects in the past ten years in the United States and Europe. "The building itself is the pinnacle. Rice has been very farsighted for doing a contemporary dance work for the opening of their building. Its very unusual!' Stokes said. The celebration of creativity included original scores by Anthony Barilla, music writer for Infernal Bridegroom Productions, a local theater company. UH associate professor Kevin Rigdon directed and created the lighting effects. Seven professional dancers from Houston joined the Rice and UH dancers in the dedication. The dancers performed in various classrooms, hallways and the courtyard of the red-brick and sand-colored block building. "Each room has a different theme, so the movements and rhythms are inspired by those different themes!' Koplowitz said. Koplowitz has been the director of dance at the Packer Collegiate Institute, a private school in Brooklyn, N.Y, since 1984. Gale Stokes, interim dean of humanities at Rice and father of Koplowiz's assistant said, "I think it's wonderful that we've been able to cooperate with the University of Houston on this project." 2621 Community The finale of the dance exhibition had choreography that expressed the acquisition of knowledge through books.
