This weekend: Radiohead meets modern dance at the University of South Florida



We all know Thom Yorke can dance to Radiohead music -- just see the video for Lotus Flower, above. But what about actual dancers?

Choreographer Ben Munisteri gives his answer in Catalog, a dance to three Radiohead songs being performed as part of the University of South Florida's spring dance concert. According to USF, Catalog "makes use of a limited number of dance phrases, which are re-sequenced, re-metered, and re-cataloged so that they repeatedly create fresh, cohesive incarnations of texture and rhythm."

The program also includes student works by Olivia Baron-Clarke, whose One Heaven, One Earth is set to music of Dinah Washington and Max Richter; and Tyler Orcutt. Dances by faculty members Andee Scott, Paula Nunez and John Parks complete the performance.

Shows are 8 p.m.  Thursday through Saturday at Theatre 1 on the Tampa campus. $8-$15. Click here for details.
