SFA’s dance program will showcase its largest group of senior choreographers during its production of Danceworks: Polysemy, which premieres at 7 p.m. tomorrow in the HPE Complex Dance Studio, Room 201.
True to its theme “Polysemy,” which means the coexistence of many possible meanings for a word or phrase, the Danceworks production will feature a variety of dance styles and topics.
Each of the 13 senior choreographers created a piece based on research topics ranging from domestic violence, espionage and dementia to confidence, social anxiety and more. Contemporary modern, Broadway, jazz, African tribal dance, Egyptian-themed dance and more will be featured in this production.
The performance is appropriate for all audiences. Additional showings are scheduled for 7 p.m. April 20 and 3 p.m. April 21. Tickets cost $5 for students, $8 for faculty, staff and senior citizens, and $10 for general admission and can be purchased at the door.
Did you know that the AP Stylebook, Chicago Manual of Style and MLA Style Manual all recommend using one space after terminal punctuation marks?
With the invention of moveable type, the use of varying spaces were used for the purpose of enhancing readability. One reason is because early typewriters gave each character the same amount of space with no regard to how narrow or wide they are. So, when an “i” took up as much space as an “m,” putting an extra space after a period made it easier to see when a sentence ended and a new one began.
In the mid-1900s typewriters began using a system that broke the type grid cells into fifths, so character spacing was proportionate to their width. This made readability clearer and the extra space at the end of a sentence unnecessary.
