WALLA WALLA -- Whitman Dance Theater will present a performance of "AIRPORT!" at 8 p.m. Dec. 9 and 10 at Cordiner Hall, 46 S. Park St., on the Whitman College campus.
Choreographed by Vicki Lloid, "AIRPORT!" is a dance in nine movements for 20 dancers.
It explores the meaning of hurrying, waiting, confusion, boredom, intrigue and overheard conversations.
The dancers zoom through space like overbooked vacationers, fling each other like unclaimed baggage stranded in Topeka and engage the mysteries of flight with a sense of wonder and abandon.
Student choreography includes performances of Whitman College senior Rhya Milici's "Move On" and a sequence of vignettes about saying goodbye, choreographed by junior Allyson Gibson.
Also appearing is RiverRince, Whitman's popular Irish dance group, along with the acclaimed Whitman Dance Team.
The performances are open to the public and there is no charge to attend Whitman Dance Theater performances.
