Ruby Slippers Return to Grand Rapids

“I’m a teacher at the University of Minnesota in the Department of Theater Arts and Dance, and I proposed the project to our department. So last fall I devised a play based on the theft with a group of university students,” Seifert continued. “We had a great time developing it, using the ‘Wizard of Oz,’ news clips, and documentaries, ultimately creating a Fargo-esque play that we performed at the university.”

"Dance Allows Met to Touch the Deepest of Human Sorrows"

"The gifts of dance practice are many: Precision, discipline, patience and humility are often talked about. Yet, if dancing were to be all about holding sculpturesque balances forever, or executing fast footwork, it would be difficult to sustain over the years. As a social-justice choreographer, I dance because it allows me to touch, metaphorically, the deepest of human sorrows and joys, to articulate often overlooked stories from global communities of women of color."

Katelyn Buis (MA/PhD)

Kate is insatiably curious about the world and the humans around her, and has been teaching Public Speaking, Introduction to Acting, Debate, Introduction to Theatre, Advanced Acting, Creative Dramatics, and other undergraduate courses at Indiana University until arriving at UMN.
