DanseWise: Dreamscape


Theatre Sewanee presents DanceWise: Dreamscapes, at 7:30 p.m. CT Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 19-21, and at 2 p.m. CT Sunday, Nov. 22, at the Tennessee Williams Center’s Proctor Hill Theatre on the campus of the University of the South. Admission is free, but seating is limited. To reserve tickets, please email

Under the artistic direction of Courtney World, Theatre Sewanee produces the third annual performance of DanceWise. This collection of dances brings together choreography by Courtney World, guest artist Adrienne Wilson, and student choreographers Ellie Clark, Kylie McCardel, Arthur Ndoumbe, Fridien Tchoukoua, and David Terrell. Seventeen Sewanee students will perform. 

DanceWise: Dreamscapes features the premiere of eight new choreographic works and two re-staged dances in a variety of styles ranging from tap to contemporary to African. Lighting design is by Chynna Bradford, and costume design is by Jennifer Matthews and students from the Costume Design class.

Throughout the production, a dreamscape unfolds as each dance reveals new perspectives on the nature of dreams. From these various notions of dreaming, voluntary and involuntary, awake and asleep, viewers are led on an imaginative journey through inner desires, visions, aspirations, and fantasies.
