Arts Story  March 4, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...Basic questions for moving across a stage or moving through life – and the two mix in "More," the third section of a work that choreographer Andrea Beckham has developed with students in the University of Texas Department of Theatre & Dance for the Dance Repertory Theatre spring program Physical Language. Beckham was looking at a large number of dancers in the troupe this semester (28, the most dance majors the department has ever had), and with a fair number of them being seniors, she was mindful of the fact that for some this would be the final performance before they embarked on their careers – a step about which they were understandably anxious..."

But other times, as with Dance Repertory Theatre's program of dance works informed by African-American experiences and culture, the university feels like a watchtower, a vital refuge for truly considering, from myriad angles, some of the most serious issues of our time...."

American Repertory Ensemble's Dialogues
With American Repertory Ensemble, a company of artists from both music and dance, choreographer David Justin and composer Rob Deemer hope to start a new dialogue between their two disciplines
Arts Story  July 21, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...Now, these worlds already have a long tradition of conversation, but in performance, usually with dancers onstage and musicians in the pit, the physical separation and focus on the visual has left the conversation feeling largely one-sided. Justin, who teaches in the UT Department of Theatre & Dance and is artistic director of its Dance Repertory Theatre, and Deemer, who received his doctorate in composition from UT and currently chairs the composition department at the University of Oklahoma, sought to create a true dialogue between music and dance via an ensemble of artists from both worlds who would share the stage in concerts...."
