Full Radius expands art of movement

By Leslie King

A unique dance performance takes the art of movement to a whole new level, described as employing breathtaking speeds, groundbreaking technique and inventive partnering. Works that celebrate the diversity of the human experience will be on display when Full Radius Dance performs at Emory.

Full Radius Dance is unique in that it incorporates dancers of all physical abilities into its performances. Founded in 1990 in Atlanta, Full Radius is said to be one of only a handful of physically integrated dance companies in the United States.

The event will take place Wednesday, March 4, at 7 p.m. in the Emory Performing Arts Center.

Catherine Cole, a professor in the Department of Theatre, Dance and Performance Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, will introduce the performance. This event is part of Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts’ Health Science Humanities Program Series and is co-sponsored by the Institute of African Studies.
