Brenda Way, artistic director of ODC/San Francisco, brings her ballet group to the Lied
Center for Performing Arts tonight.
Ballet group tours Nebraska
By Paula Lavigne
Senior Reporter
Quickness of mind, quickness
of body, and dancers are under
“Way” — Brenda Way, that is.
Way, a veteran dancer from San
Francisco, and her company, ODC/
San Francisco, is touring eastern
Nebraska during October. Origi
nally the Oberlin Dance Collective,
named after the Oberlin College
Interarts Program, ODC/San Fran
cisco was renamed in 1979.
ODC/San Francisco is touring
this month in celebration of Na
tional Arts and Humanities Month.
The dancers conduct workshops, as
well as perform, including a perfor
mance tonight at the Lied Center
for Performing Arts.
Way said she fed off her stu
dents’ and audiences’ opinions.
Two students who had just com
pleted one of Way’s master classes
sat enraptured by Way’s dynamic
gestures and rapid-fire speech.
Mark Yambar, a freshman
broadcasting major, and Kim
Berney, a senior dance major, lis
tened to Way like two children
awestruck by Santa Claus.
Way complimented Yambar on
his inventive movement, a strength
she later recognized as important to
buildinga new “ballet vocabulary.”
“It draws you into the produc
tion,” Yambar said. “I see how the
movement and the gestures made
new possibilities.”
The difference between the 10
mcmberODC/San Francisco ballet
and the more traditional academy
ballet is that movement dictates over
form and line, Way said.
“It’s springy,” she said. “It’s
moving up against itself.”
Way said her dances had an ath
letic quality and compared a per
formance to a basketball game.
“I’ve always thought that sports
photographers should do dance,”
she said. “They can capture those
Way said her ballet, compared
to others, had a contemporary, hu
man element and dancers were
treated equally and as family.
“It’san ensemble of 10 dancers,
and each is a soloist.”
Way said she chose older danc
ers who had the traditional ballet
experience, much to Yambar’s dis
“It was kind of hard to catch on,”
he said, “but maybe in eight years
I’ll be quicker.”
A lot of the dancers’ genuine
spirit also comes from the music
that moves them, she said. The
music spans a broad range, from
Mozart to Jimi Hendrix to Bobby
The company’s selections for
tonight’s performance include“Part
of a Longer Story,” set to Mozart;
“River,” based on Norman
MeClean’s story “A River Runs
Through It;” “Scissors Paper
Stone,” a rock and blues piece com
missioned by the Alvin Ailcy
American Dance Theater; and
“Dirt,” the third in a “Western
Women” trilogy set to a cappella
Way’s activities also include a
residency sponsored by the Uni
versity ofNebraska President’s Fine
Arts Artist/Scholar in Residence
program, which ends Oct. 25.
A pre-performance talk begins
tonight at 7 prior to the 7:30 perfor
mance, and Way encourages people
to come backstage after the show.

Fugazi is likely to do the same with
tonight’s show in Ag Hall at the State
Fair Park.
By mixing politics and social is
sues with hard and fast rock ‘n’ roll,
Fugazi has been able to maintain its
integrity on both the musical and lyri
cal levels.
This integrity, when put into the
hands of four extremely talented mu
sicians (MacKaye; vocalist/guitarist
Guy Picciotto; bassist Joe Lally; and
drummer Brendan Canty), makes for
music that doesn’t need hype to sell,
and that’s exactly what Fugazi has
done for a seven-inch, two EPs and
four full-length albums.
Fugazi’s latest release, “Red Medi
cine,” will most likely help the band
accumulate even more fans.
Starting off with a grinding and
mechanical series of sounds that sound
like the opening lines of Smashing
Pumpkins’ “Cherub Rock” recorded
in a trash compactor, “Do You Like
Me” bursts into an unabashedly pop
filled tune.
MacKaye follows with “Bed for
the Scraping,” an anthem-like tune
that features MacKaye on a series of
chants that makes the song stick out
instantly. As he shouts out his state
ment of “I don’t want to be defeated”
over and over again, he seems to indi
rectly prove that Fugazi’s music prob
ably never will.
“Combination Lock,” the latest in
the series of token instrumentals that
have graced each of the band’s full
length albums, shows off the band’s
ability to write truly intricate and indi
vidualistic songs.
Other highlights on the album in
clude “Birthday Pony,” “Target” and
“Back to Base.”
The album doesn’t quite match the
intense songwritingthat filled“Steady
Diet of Nothing,” the band’s 1991
release. It seems to be more a matchup
ofthe strong lyrical content of Fugazi’s
self-titled debut EP and the stylized
music of “Repeater,” its 1990 full
length that pushed the boundaries of
the band’s musical experimentation.
Tonight’s concert promises to be a
combination of most Of the band’s
different styles and approaches. The
opening slots are filled by Lungfish
and Eamon.
The doors to Ag Hall open at 6:30
p.m., and the music begins at 7. Tick
ets are, of course, $5 and are available
at Homer’s on 14th and O streets.
