“Shadowed Winds and Ghost Roads,” a powerful dance concert conceived, written, and directed by Aaron Wood, will be performed on the Mick and Susie McMurry Stage at Casper College Feb. 23-26 and March 3-5.

“Shadowed Winds and Ghost Roads” is part of the 37th Annual Casper College Humanities Festival, “Crossroads.” Another exhibit at the NIC, “Museum on Main Street,” also in conjunction with the humanities festival, sparked Wood’s imagination. “After diving into research about what (the NIC) exhibit reflects, such as community identity and culture, as well as the continuum of time, my ideas for “Shadowed Winds and Ghost Roads” began to take shape,” said Wood, dance instructor.

Inspired by the history of Wyoming ghost towns and crossroads created by highways and interstates, “Shadowed Winds and Ghost Roads” “ … is a reflection of our collective sense of place and our interconnecting energies,” Wood said. “There is no tale to ‘Shadowed Winds and Ghost Roads,’ but rather living vignettes of time, of place, and of simply being,” he added.

“Shadowed Winds and Ghost Roads” will begin at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23-25 and March 3-5 with a 2 p.m. performance Saturday, Feb. 26 and March 5.

Tickets are now on sale and are $12 for adults and $10 for students 5-18. They are available online, at the box office from 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, by phone at 307-268-2500, or one hour before each performance, for that performance only.

The Mick and Susie McMurry Stage is in the Gertrude Krampert Center for Theatre and Dance on the Casper College campus.
