‘Dancing in the Fire’ one-man production taking place on UW-Green Bay campus

GREEN BAY — A performance of “Dancing in the Fire: The Monarch, The Missionary and The Métis,” a multi-media, original dance, music and prose-based theatre production, takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 25, in Fort Howard Hall inside the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on the UW-Green Bay campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive.

Admission is $20 for this historically interpretive, one-person show, which depicts three key characters of French lineage and influence in North America. Included in the lineup are King Louis XIV, Father Jacques Marquette, and Charles De Langlade.

Tickets can be ordered by calling (800) 328-8587 or online at www.uwgb.edu/tickets.

Storytelling, projections, poetry, music and dance are all used in this multi-disciplinary performance celebrating French and Native American integration during the 17th and 18th centuries on the North American continent.

Writer and performer Marc Kotz combines his life-long experience as a performing artist with a passion for the relatively unsung, yet pervasive French legacy in the Great Lakes Region and throughout the heart of continent. The primary identity of this legacy is the little-known Métis culture and people, which have remained virtually unacknowledged in the United States since the early 19th century.

Kotz is an artist/educator who offers educational enhancement programs and “edu-tainments” through his own company, Born 2 Move Movement Adventures, at UW-Green Bay and across the country via teleconferencing technology.

Kotz is an ad hoc music and dance instructor at UW-Green Bay.

The performance has been made possible with funding from the Bradshaw-Knight Foundation of Madison.
