UNO to Show Moving Company Documentary on Nov. 16
Omaha - The Moving Company, the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) modern dance group, will premiere a documentary focused on its long history, choreographic works and its many collaborations with community partners on Sunday, Nov. 16.
“I’m extremely proud that we can show this film during UNO’s Centennial year,” said Josie Metal-Corbin, director for The Moving Company. “This group has a rich tradition that goes back to the very early days of Omaha University.”
Award-winning filmmaker Jeff Curtis directed the 50-minute documentary, “The Moving Company: 1935-2008.” It includes an interview with 93-year-old Marjorie Whitted, who danced with the group in the 1940s.
The screening takes place in the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Building’s Dance Lab at 2:30 p.m. The screening is free and open to the campus community and public. Fore more information, call (402) 554-2670 or go to www.unomaha.edu/themovingcompany .
UNO will celebrate its 100th anniversary beginning October 8, 2008. This celebration will recognize the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
