Fuzion Dance performs at New College in Sarasota

   Sarasota's Fuzion Dance Artists do a lot of cool stuff, and one of the coolest is their annual "In the Round" summer concert.
   The program presents works by emerging choreographers -- some of them dancers from Fuzion, and others from outside. The company presents the works in an intimate setting, with the audience, as the title implies, seated on all sides of the stage. Each audience member has a slightly different perspective and experience.

   After the performance, the audience is asked for non-judgmental feedback through a process developed by Liz Lerman, the famed choreographer and founder of the Dance Exchange. In the process, audience members are asked to describe what they saw and what they felt, and whether they perceived a theme. The audience doesn't know the names of the pieces beforehand, so there's no preconceived idea of what each piece is supposed to be about.
   This year's "In The Round" is scheduled for this weekend, 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. (That's Aug. 2 and 3). It's at the Black Box Theatre at New College of Florida, 5800 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota. 
   Tickets are $20 general, $10 for students. Seating is limited, so you're advised to get tickets soon. Call 941-312-4534.
