UADC_Dancex640

Akron, OH — The University of Akron Dance Company (UADC) presents its Spring 2015 performances April 16 and 17, 7:30 p.m., at E.J. Thomas Hall, 198 Hill St., Akron.

The program will include a piece accompanied by internationally acclaimed pianist Philip Thomson. It also includes the world premiere of a work by guest choreographer Alexandre Munz of France. Munz, known for his SAFE Project — Spine Advanced Functional Empowerment — will be on the UA campus in March to set his new work, “Youth with Caution,” on the UADC dancers.

The piece, says Munz, “pays homage to the immense potential and the promises that lie in our internationally interconnected youth.”

In developing the piece, Munz will work with the UA dancers by using what he calls SAFE Graphysiology, his innovative sensory approach that employs mental imagery to create movement. While on campus, Munz will also teach his SAFE Floor and SAFE Barre techniques to students. For more information, visit www.thesafeproject.net.

The UADC spring performances will also feature original works by UA dance faculty Robin Prichard, Cydney Spohn, and Tom Smith. Prichard has choreographed a piece with the title “Breathe Together, Breathe Apart.” Smith is exploring earth, wind, fire, and rain using the music of J.S. Bach in his modern work “Elements.” Spohn’s piece, a mix of romantic style ballet and contemporary movement, will be accompanied on stage by Thomson, a faculty member in the UA School of Music.

Tickets in advance and at the door are $14 for general admission, $12 for seniors, UA faculty/staff/alumni, and $7 for students. Call the Thomas Hall ticket office at

(330) 972-7570 or visit www.uaevents.com.

Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits Opens March 13 at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

herb_bannerNever-Before-Seen Photographs and Original Video Footage Featured in New Exhibit on Revolutionary Photographer Herb Ritts 

CLEVELAND (MAR. 3, 2015) – The work of renowned photographer Herb Ritts (1952-2002) will be featured in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s newest exhibit, Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits, which will open on Fri., Mar. 13, 2015. Presented in collaboration with the Herb Ritts Foundation, the exhibit includes 30 never-before-seen photographs, original video footage, contact sheets with Ritts’ red-pencil markings, new video interviews and other well-known portraits from the revolutionary photographer and filmmakers’ collection.

Ritts was a part of the first movement of still photographers who became directors of music videos and television commercials. Alongside Ritts’ bold portraits, visitors will see new exclusive interviews by the Rock Hall with Chris Isaak sharing what it was like to film the famously seductive “Wicked Game” music video and k.d. lang recalling her groundbreaking Vanity Fair cover shoot with supermodel Cindy Crawford.

The Rock Portraits exhibit will also include firsthand accounts from musicians on what it was like to work with Ritts, a sampling of his award-winning music videos, and interactive stations including a collection of album covers he shot. Visitors will also be able to photograph themselves in a backdrop from one of Ritts’ most famous beach photos.

Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, says “We were given unprecedented access to the vast Ritts archives and the result is stunning. This provocative exhibition is a testament to the visceral power of both photography and rock and roll.  It is not to be missed.”

“Having an exhibit that showcases the world of rock through his inimitable lens, capturing rare, unguarded moments with some of the biggest names in music history is a first for the Herb Ritts Foundation and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the perfect place for it to debut,” adds Mark McKenna, Executive Director of the Herb Ritts Foundation.

Ritts photographed some of the world’s biggest music stars. He made startlingly intimate portraits that showed artists as the world had never seen them. Never-before-seen photographs of artists that will be featured in The Rock Portraits exhibit include:

  • Joan Baez
  • Bjork
  • David Bowie
  • Jackson Browne
  • Tracy Chapman
  • Cher
  • Bob Dylan
  • Janet Jackson
  • Elton John
  • B.B. King
  • k.d. lang
  • Madonna 
  • John Mellencamp
  • Sinead O’Connor
  • Prince
  • Gwen Stefani
  • Rod Stewart
  • James Taylor
  • Justin Timberlake
  • Tina Turner 
  • and others

Ritts began his photographic career in the late 70s and gained a reputation as a master of art and commercial photography. In addition to producing portraits and editorial fashion for Vogue, Vanity Fair, Interview and Rolling Stone, Ritts also created successful advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein, Chanel, Donna Karan, Gap, Gianfranco Ferré, Gianni Versace, Giorgio Armani, Levi’s, Pirelli, Polo Ralph Lauren and Valentino among others. Starting in 1988, he directed numerous influential and award winning music videos and commercials. His fine art photography has been the subject of exhibitions worldwide with works residing in many significant public and private collections.
