Audiences have the opportunity to be enchanted once again by Oblivion’s Ink, the contemporary ballet by Department of Theatre and Dance Associate Professor David Justin.

Audiences have the opportunity to be enchanted once again by Oblivion’s Ink, the contemporary ballet by Department of Theatre and Dance Associate Professor David Justin. Dance Repertory Theatre, the university’s student dance ensemble, will perform Justin’s choreography at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. on May 25.

The performance is in conjunction with the National College Dance Festival, an annual event that highlights exemplary choreography and performance created at colleges and universities across the country. The University of Texas at Austin’s dance program is one of 30 schools recognized at this year’s prestigious event. Oblivion’s Ink was premiered in March 2012 as part the department’s critically acclaimed dance concert Catalyst.

In addition to its debut at the Kennedy Center, Oblivion’s Ink will be performed in American Repertory Ensemble’s (ARE) spring concert at the Long Center for the Performing Arts on May 23. Entitled Fast Approaching Swiftly Gone, ARE’s program includes the Tosca String Quartet as well as work by internationally renowned choreographers Alex Ketley and Julia Adam.

David Justin serves as the co-artistic director of Dance Repertory Theatre and the artistic director of American Repertory Ensemble.
