A new ballet show from Marlene Skog exhibits the “Facets” of life

At the UW Dance Department, assistant professor Marlene Skog teaches ballet technique and a course on world dance cultures. It’s a mix she’s carrying into Facets, the first concert of contemporary ballet at the H’Doubler, the performance space at Lathrop Hall.

“The word itself means so many points of view,” she says. “It also means collaboration, coming together.”

Five pieces are firmly rooted in ballet, but also feature live music, art and spoken word.

“Each says something about who we are,” she says. “Basically, it’s the facets of life presented through dance.”
