Jazz, theater and dance

"Feast Your Eyes, Feed Your Head" is the provocative title of the jazz/theater/modern dance performance that Momentum Dance Theatre will bring to Homewood's Shriver Hall Auditorium at noon on Wednesday, March 3.

Momentum, a professional theater and dance organization based in Washington, D.C., was founded in 1986 by social worker Roberta Rothstein, the company's artistic director, who brings to the stage her experience counseling maximum-security prisoners, teen parents, substance abusers and the mentally ill.

Performances weave together personal stories with social and political themes, contemporary dance and the music of jazz artists such as Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Social Concern, this event is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the university's Office of Special Events.

For more information, call the Office of Special Events at 443-287-9900.
