F R O M T H E E X E C U T I V E D I R E C TO R Welcome to Danceworks –we’re so happy you could be part of the company’s 15th anniversary milestone. This concert is a perfect example of what the late Ed Burgess, past chair and professor of the UW-Milwaukee Dance Department, noted about Danceworks Performance Company: “It’s Dani’s (Artistic Director Dani Kuepper’s) generous and collaborative spirit that sets DPC apart from other companies. Each dancer is also a gifted choreographer, and they are given the opportunity to share their unique artistic voices. That doesn’t happen often.” For those of you who didn’t get the chance to know or work with Ed, rest assured that he breathed his enormous passion for dance and life into the very core of each of us. He lives on through us all. Danceworks’ artists and staff have been trained, inspired and challenged to become more than we believed possible by the stellar UWM dance faculty—Ed, along with Marcia Parsons, Janet Lilly, Fern Caulker-Bronson and, most recently, Simone Ferro, Luc Vanier, Darci Wutz, Elizabeth Johnson and our own Dani Kuepper. Our relationships at UWM and within the community have provided fuel for the entire Danceworks organization over the past 20 years—and that includes you. We want you to discover that dance works for everyone—from the two-year-old toddler in our Mommy and Me class, to the restless 12-year old in a Mad Hot Ballroom and Tap class, and the 87-year old in one of our 50+ classes. We need to know that we are working towards a community that thrives on joy, health and creativity. Thank you for being here to celebrate with us. Deborah Farris, Executive Director
F R O M T H E A R T I S T I C D I R E C TO R Want or Need is the final concert of Danceworks Performance Company’s (DPC)’s 15th anniversary season. In 1997, Danceworks’ founders, Mary Newton and Polly Morris, invited the dynamic and inventive Sarah Wilbur to form DPC and serve as the artistic director. The charter members—Sarah Wilbur, Laura Teska, Anina Bacon, Jen Moore, Andi Hill-Johnson, Cynthia Collins and Amy Brinkman were all alumni of the ever-vibrant UW-Milwaukee Dance Department. I joined soon after, in the spring of 1998. My honeymoon and pregnancies have caused me to miss a few concerts since then, but otherwise, I’ve watched and participated in the evolution of DPC from the beginning. I’m so thankful to have Sarah Wilbur’s creative presence in this show, with her resetting of the 2006 premiere, “I Before We.” It wouldn’t seem right to celebrate this anniversary without DPC’s founder and my dear friend and colleague in the mix. Aside from Sarah’s work, there is one other piece from the past, “The Gate,” which I created in 2005. As Sarah and I had choreographed a bulk of the dancing that occurred during the first 10 years of DPC, I thought it was fitting to represent one of each of our previous works. The remainder of the concert is a reflection of what is to come in the future of DPC. There is a wealth of creativity and energy in DPC’s current membership, and it is my hope to continue to create alongside these eclectic voices. Over the course of the 1112 season, eight out of 10 DPC members have contributed choreographically. We are collaborating, exchanging and growing together. Although DPC members range in age from 20-something to 40-something (I’m one of the senior members, so I’m not giving away any hard facts here!), a compilation of our individual wants and needs seems to ring true for all of us: I want to know the future. I want to belong. To be understood. I want to get rid of my piddly little ego. I want cake! I want more time to consider and select ingredients and carefully read directions. I don’t want to let anyone down. To want—is to set yourself up for disappointment. I need to be strong. I need to have faith. I need to unclog my brain and step into the unknown. I need honesty. I can live without you. (But I don’t want to.) I am better with you in my life. Many thanks to the DPC audience that has supported us over the last 15 years. Our lives are better with you! Sincerely, Dani Kuepper Artistic Director, Danceworks Performance Company
