Women's History Month Art Exhibit
Library

Photographer Angelica Ekeke is the Stories Coordinator at the Museum of the African Diaspora in downtown San Francisco, where she produces short films that chronicle the lives of people of African descent in the Bay Area.  In her timely photo series “Who we are: the will to adorn,” subjects adorn themselves with pieces of clothing and jewelry that have a significance to their identity. In a time where racial division is on the rise and anti-immigration rhetoric is prevalent, it is a joining of women who have “the will”, the deliberate intention, to celebrate the beauty of who they are. The combination of photojournalistic photographs and unconventional portraiture place subjects in their own home or landscapes that resemble their native land. With this, she is inviting viewers to look, listen, and think about the significance of adornment, the value of culture, and the will that it takes to be who we are, truly and fearlessly in America.

Performance Arts
June 02, 2017
7 p.m.
"All You Need Is Love" Dance Concert
Smithwick Theatre (Room 1001)
Parking is $3; purchase parking permit from dispensers in any student lot.

The Foothill Repertory Dance Company presents All You Need Is Love, its annual showcase of student choreography and dance, June 2–3 at 7 p.m. in the Smithwick Theater at the campus in Los Altos Hills. An opening act of experimental student works begins at 7 p.m. with the main curtain at 7:30 p.m. To purchase advance tickets, call (650) 949-7354. The box office opens at 6 p.m. on performance dates.

In addition to world dance forms and specialty acts, the family friendly two-hour concert will feature classic Broadway choreography. Students will present fresh, original works that include salsa, contemporary solos, hip-hop, ballet folklorico, and more.

“As an instructor, it’s critical for me to help my students imbue their work with proper technique, as well as with passion and compassion. Foothill dancers leave egos and attitudes at the door, which enables everyone to practice and perform with a spirit of generosity and grace,” says Foothill College Dance Director Bubba Gong, M.A. “At Foothill, we dance in a playground of creative fun and freedom. I’m proud that our dancers continually challenge themselves creatively and physically. They truly have no fear when it comes to creativity.”

To meet dancers’ evolving needs, Foothill offers a variety of dance courses each 12-week quarter. Each emphasizes a specific dance technique, including ballet, modern, jazz, world, contemporary and hip-hop. Additional dance courses give students the unique opportunity to develop original choreography and produce small- and large-scale performances.

Parking Lots 1, 5 and 8 provide the best access to the theatre. Purchase parking permit for $3 from dispensers in any student lot. Dispensers accept credit/debit cards and cash.
