In a recent profile of Idaho Dance Theatre, Boise Weekly looked at the company's 25-year history of bringing contemporary/modern dance to Boise audiences, its evolution and its many generations of alumni--all of which was fostered by IDT executive director, co-artistic director and choreographer Carl Rowe.
IDT's 2013-14 season will be Rowe's last, and this year's Spring Performances, set for Thursday-Sunday, April 17-20, at the Boise State University Special Events Center, will honor the longtime IDT member's legacy by performing some of his greatest hits. The program will feature five works from Rowe's oeuvre and will also premiere a new Rowe piece, with music by Jim Cockey commissioned by Rowe and IDT.
As part of Rowe's send-off, the company is also bringing in the College of Idaho's Langroise Trio, IDT alumnus Yurek Hansen and former Trey McIntyre Project dancer Jason Hartley as special guests.
The spring program will also be brought to life by IDT dancers, including Sayoko Knode, Jessica Liu and Nell Rollins.
