South Village Crossing to Open in January
South Village Crossing, the new 56,146-square-foot dining and gathering facility nestled between Moore and Scott residence halls, is scheduled to serve its first meals Tuesday, Jan. 6.
"Our students, faculty, staff and guests will be impressed with the tasteful design, culinary innovation and warm, welcoming atmosphere," said Ana Alvarez, director of auxiliary services. "We expect this building to solidify the sense of community at South Village and attract and delight students and staff from all over campus."
South Village Dining (SoVi) features an expansive hall where all food production will be visible. Patch Hadden, executive chef for South Village Crossing said, "The thing I am most excited about is being able to prepare and cook out front. It allows us [culinary staff] to focus on freshness, quality and plate presentation and allows the students a greater appreciation for putting together a well-balanced meal."
Dance Students to Perform with Graham Company
Students from the UNC Charlotte Department of Dance will perform Martha Graham's "Steps in the Street" (1936) for a program with the Martha Graham Dance Company being presented by the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, Jan. 20, at the Knight Theater.
"Steps in the Street," with its subtitle "Devastation – Homelessness – Exile," is part of a larger work "Chronicle" created by Graham in response to the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. The piece, which features 12 dancers, is known for its stark and dramatic movement as it addresses the spiritual damage that war inflicts.
In February, these students will reprise their performance at the Joyce Theater in New York City at the Martha Graham Dance Company’s University Partners Showcase.
