Dr. Laurel Victoria Gray will discuss these historic connections between clothing and movement, with special attention to the evolution of Uzbek dance in the 20th century. Members of Gray’s Silk Road Dance Company, wearing traditional costumes, will demonstrate how regional clothing styles enhance and amplify gestures through performance.
