Back to Events

Iowa State University Orchesis I Dance Company presents Barjche’ 2020 Dancing Through Barriers.  A contemporary modern dance production honoring the 100th anniversary of a women’s right to vote. Through dance, ISU Orchesis I Dance Company celebrates the super-heroines of our past and present through modern and contemporary choreography. In conjunction with an Iowa State University wide celebration, Barjche’ is one of the HERoics events on campus.  Barjche’ 2020 includes choreography by San Francisco Guest Artist Kathleen Hermesdorf,  original sound score by internationally acclaimed  composer Albert Mathias, Artistic Director Cynthia Adams and members of Orchesis 1 Dance Company.

Barjche’ (pronounced bar‐Shay), Iowa State University’s annual modern dance concert, was first created in 1946 by three Iowa State students: Barbara, Jean and Charlotte. Since that time Orchesis I has carried on the tradition.
