URBAN ARTWORKS VI TO PERFORM AT PACE UNIVERSITY

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Rosie the Riveter, Cool Water Blue, and Bridge (presented by Mary Bruce Blackburn, Artistic Director of The American Dance Ensemble, Inc.). Rosie the Riveter is set to the bluesy voice of Cassandra Wilson. The American Dance Ensemble combines sensuality, sense and strength in this piece, rising to an era of change and new found purpose during WWII. Cool Water Blue, featuring music by Jean Luc Ponty, highlights the mystery of water-borne creatures in waves of deep blue. Bridge is set to an African drumming score and concerns a “friendly” game of cards.

Scriptures and Nails (presented by Trebien Pollard of the Pilobolus Dance Theater). This piece speaks to a man’s desperation and fear in search of eternity. Scriptures and Nails explores the experience of being gay, black and spiritually grounded. It is performed by Pollard and Leslie Myers, with an original composition by poet G. Winston James, and composers and musicians Kohachiro Miyata (skakyhachi) and Olatunju (drums).

Timeless Red (presented by Ellis Wood). Timeless Red focuses on the human conflict of personal control. With music by Scott Westerfeld and text by Jonathan Pascoe, the piece asks: how much control does anyone have over their own environment?

At the End of the Hall (presented by Christina Briggs and Edward Winslow). At the End of the Hall is a dynamic presentation filled with physical invention and psychological and emotional drama. The relationship between the two dancers addresses issues of dominance and passivity, masculinity and femininity. The music is by Mark Isham.

Sea of Tranquillity (presented by Luka Kito). This dance is named after the site on the moon where Apollo 11 landed on July 20, 1969 and is a tribute to this historical event. Sea of Tranquillity features an original score by Harutaka Oribe, and investigates the shifts in various norms including values, perception, distance and space, which are generated by technological advancements. Mr. Kito, founder and Artistic Director of Choreotechtonics, is a native of Tokyo and holds an M.S. in Advanced Architecture from Columbia University. His choreography is a fascinating study of the influence of his architectural background applied to choreography.

Valentine (presented by Kristen Mangione). Valentine is a work for six dancers who blend modern dance with theatrical collage. The work focuses on notions of love, lust and loss. It is performed against a backdrop of musical excerpts by Phillip Glass, Nat King Cole and Sally Potter, poetry of e.e. cummings and text from the film, “Casablanca.”

Sketches of Flame (presented by Bridget Moore). This piece defines the powerful rhythmic forces of Spanish flamenco music. Sketches of Flame celebrates the strength and resilience of the human spirit through duende — a spirit or apparition that enters the body at its point of exhaustion.

Plunge (created by Lauren Slaiman). Plunge is a combination of Esther Williams and Barbie, featuring a live percussive track by Joshua Berger. “Vogue-ing” takes place by bathing suit clad dancers who combine forceful energy and idiosyncratic gestures in this piece.

Mary Bruce Blackburn is the Artistic Director and Producer of URBAN ARTWORKS.

School of Law to Construct $10-Million Classroom Building

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m.,
Friday, May 1, for construction of a new three-story, 27,000 square-foot
classroom building that will become the centerpiece of the Pace University
School of Law’s White Plains campus at 78 North Broadway. Construction is
expected to be completed by the fall semester of 1999.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m.,
Friday, May 1, for construction of a new three-story, 27,000 square-foot
classroom building that will become the centerpiece of the Pace University
School of Law’s White Plains campus at 78 North Broadway. Construction is
expected to be completed by the fall semester of 1999.

Funding for the $10-million, state-of-the-art building, approved by the
University’s Board of Trustees, will come from part of the proceeds of a
$60-million bond that the University secured in 1997 from the State Dormitory
Authority.

The School of Law also will use the groundbreaking ceremony to formally announce
a $5-million capital campaign. This “Campaign for Excellence” will help fund
student scholarships, library facility improvements, a faculty chair in
Environmental or Health Law, and five named professorships.

“The construction of the new classroom building is a first step in creating
an enhanced learning environment for legal education in the 21st century,”
said Richard Ottinger, dean of the School of Law.

“The new facility will provide the Law School with exciting, state-of-the art
classrooms designed for dynamic teaching and learning experiences,” said President
Patricia O. Ewers.

The building, which will connect three existing classroom buildings, will provide
a landscaped quadrangle as the campus centerpiece. The building will contain five
horseshoe-shaped, tiered classrooms with seating for 60 to 100 students.

“The new building will provide us with the interactive classrooms commonly used for
law school instruction,” said Professor Jeffrey Miller, who is chairing the faculty
committee overseeing the project.

According to Miller, the 80-seat, first floor, wired classroom will enable students
to connect laptop computers to the Pace network right from their desks. The other
classrooms will have the infrastructure enabling them to be connected. All of the
rooms will be equipped to support a full range of computer and audio-visual assisted
learning.

The addition of this new classroom space will enable the Law School to reallocate other
areas of the campus for better use. For example, expanding the Library by 6,000 square
feet will allow for additional study rooms, a computer laboratory and offices. The
project also includes renovation of existing space to provide a new home to one of the
School’s law clinics, the John Jay Legal Services, Inc., and the Office of Career Development.

Lohan Associates designed the new building, a Chicago-based architectural firm that also
designed the Ann and Alfred Goldstein Academic Center on Pace University’s Pleasantville,
N.Y., campus. The construction for the new Law School building will be designed to minimize
disruption of the operations of the School and the neighborhood.

Founded in 1976, Pace Law School has nearly 5,000 alumni throughout the country. It offers
full- and part-time day and evening programs on its White Plains, N.Y., campus. The School
has one of the nation’s top-rated environmental law programs, and is part of a comprehensive,
independent and diversified University with campuses in New York City and Westchester County.

perspectives, Saltmarsh and Polansky will speak on the conference topic “Exploring the
Meaning of Partnerships.”

Saltmarsh, a historian with a special interest in the American tradition of community
service work, will describe “The Democratic Promise of Community/University
Partnership,” and will consider how the democratic model of two institutions working
together to improve communities can help shape educational goals and universities to
achieve those goals.

perspective of the social service agency and the community it serves. Polansky is the

courses in which Pace students serve the Henry Street community in a variety of
capacities, including expanding health services to its clients.
