Isthmus reviews ‘Consider it not so deeply’ from UW-Madison’s Skog

November 26, 2018

UW-Madison assistant professor of dance Marlene Skog showed her ballet performance, “Consider it not so deeply,’ at Lathrop Hall’s Margaret H’Doubler Performance Space on Nov. 15, with the piece receiving excellent reviews in a recent article from the Isthmus newspaper.

This contemporary ballet and performance work reflects upon female characters in Shakespeare’s work, incorporating spoken word to display his influence. It features numbers such as “Ophelia’s Divide,” “As You Like It: Rosalind or Rosalind,” and “To Be?,” which showcases two UW-Madison dance alumni, Mary Patterson and Kimi Evelyn. Through Skog’s choreography and dialogue written by the alumni, this Isthmus reviewer finds a “fresh take on Shakespeare’s most famous question.”

UW-Madison's Dance Department is housed within the School of Education.

This article cites Skog’s refreshing perspective for the show's great success: "It is heartening to see Skog find this new confidence and distinct voice in her choreography for this production. … The dancers, Skog and all involved in the concert earned more applause and acclaim than they received.”
