Dance troupe to perform at UNO
With her free-flowing hair, bare
feet and natural movements, Isadora
Duncan created a sensation in early
20th century dance.
But Duncan also created a sensa
tion as a social activist, struggling for
women’s rights and criticizing mod
ern society, culture and education.
This fall, members of the The
Moving Company, the University of
Nebraska at Omaha’s modern dance
troupe, will celebrate Duncan.
Wednesday, the company will
perform two Duncan works from the
1920s, “Scherzo” and “Schubert
Waltzes,” on UNO’s campus.
In “Scherzo,” dancers wear flow
ing white garments and hair garlands.
The movement is both celebratory
and playful and features muses and
“Schubert Waltzes” is seven min
utes of elegant, flowing, round move
ments featuring dancers in 1920s
gowns of burnt-out velvet.
The company started rehearsing
the pieces in August when New York
based artist Carol Mezzacappa visit
ed the UNO campus to restage them.
Wednesday’s performance takes
place at the UNO Art Gallery, located
in the Weber Fine Arts Building at
UN-O. The event is part of the
“Crossing the Threshold” exhibit,
which honors women artists who
were born in or before 1928.

Moving Company’s director, Josie
Metal-Corbin, at (402) 554-3239.

acters also attempt to color the film.
Catcher Gus Sinski (John C. Reilly)
and Tigers’ owner, Gary Wheeler
(Brian Cox), are the best illustrations
of stock characters used to compen
sate for the lack of script and charac
ter development. Both are given few
lines, yet expose their characters
through generic and cliched personas.
The cliches continue, which may
be director Sam Raimi’s intention.
Perhaps he intended the film to be
completely simple in hopes that
audiences could relate to the simple
characters without having to reach
too far into any intellect.
In actuality, this intention under
mines the audience’s intelligence.
Either way, it’s a lose-lose situation
that lacks the substance and strength
present in Costner’s “Bull Durham.”
“For Love of the Game” does
succeed in providing a look into an
aging man’s priorities and passions.
Be warned that the film is not so
much a “sports film,” but rather an
