Artists and Collaborators
- "Two works in progress are presented in this program, along with a post-performance discussion in which the choreographers answer audience questions about their works. The work presented by Maida Withers was a segment of a larger project called Migrations, with collaborators William Eaton, Michael Willis, James Byrne and Bruce Hucko, concerning the relationship between humans and land in the Southwest."
