Vertical Dance at University of Wyoming: ‘When Ice Breathes’

 UW President’s Speaker Series Features ‘When Ice Breathes’ Nov. 18

November 10, 2020

Neil Humphrey and Margaret Wilson

University of Wyoming Professors Margaret Wilson and Neil Humphrey will present a multimedia program for the fall semester’s installment of the President’s Speaker Series Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 4 p.m.

The presentation, “When Ice Breathes,” will be in the UW College of Arts and Sciences auditorium. The production is a free performance but, due to current COVID-19 restrictions on the UW campus, seating is limited to 50 people.

Reservations must be made through the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts box office by calling (307) 766-6666 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, or emailing www.uwyo.edu/finearts/. Email reservation confirmations must be presented at the performance, and attendees are required to wear masks.

Because of limited seating, those unable to obtain a reservation may view a livestream of the presentation available here.

Wilson is a professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance, and Humphrey is a professor in the Department of Geology and Geophysics. Their presentation will highlight their collaborative production in vertical dance, Wilson’s work in dance science and performance, and Humphrey’s research on the Greenland ice sheet.

The UW Office of Research and Economic Development, UW Operations, the Department of Theatre and Dance, and the Skip Harper Vertical Dance Fund sponsor the event.

The President’s Speaker Series encourages and honors individual faculty members who have successfully balanced the research, educational and service goals of the university. The series calls attention to individuals who have made important, well-rounded contributions to the university’s standing.

A committee, composed of the series’ previous honorees, nominates candidates, and the selected faculty member is asked to prepare a public presentation on a topic of national interest. The criteria for selection include long-term national recognition for research or creative activity and the ability to communicate with all members of the university community.
