Students from the Department of Dance, under the mentorship of Dance faculty members Sandra Torijano and Peter Sparling, will present dances in response to the works of The Ernst Pulgram and Frances McSparran Collection. Europe on Paper, featuring drawings, paintings and watercolors of Austrian and German expressionist artists, will inspire performances by U-M Dance students that interpret the emotion, line and color of works by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Ernst Kirchner and Oskar Kokoschka.
