This morning, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.
Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.
Showdates: January 27 - 29, 2017
UAA Dance senior Katie O’Loughlin will be making her highly anticipated directorial debut with Middle Ground in late January. Exploring the connection between technology and choreography, O’Loughlin’s production seeks to visually interpret the concept of “middle” through movement, bodies, sound, space, lights, and projections.
A veteran of the UAA Dance program, O’Loughlin has choreographed for three productions, danced in five and assisted with technical design in an additional 8.
“Through the help of UAA professors Brian Jeffery and Dan Anteau, I have the amazing opportunity to get my hands on every part of a production,” explained O’Loughlin. “My ultimate goal is to combine my dance knowledge with my technical theatre and dance knowledge. I don’t want to be a dancer who slaps light onto choreography, I want to be the dancer who can choreograph the lights to my dance.”
The production also features an ensemble cast of 12 UAA Dance alumni and current students.
Performances held at the Harper Studio Theatre, 3700 Alumni Drive, Anchorage, AK 99508
This production is in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the departmental honors in Theatre and Dance.
