(Nos)otros, meaning "Us Others," is a student-led dance show exploring themes of duality, identity, and transformation. The show is directed by Elise Smith '19 and produced by Sabrina Liu '20, with choreography by Elise and Serena Lotreck '19 and lighting design by Lyra Liu '20.

The show features nine original dance pieces, with students from a range of backgrounds, majors, and ages at Cornell. The production will also showcase a range of dance styles—from jazz to ballet to salsa. 

"The show has been an amazing way for people from all across Cornell to come together and collaborate, as artists and human beings, and reflect on the pathways to growth and individuation. Directing has been such a fulfilling experience, and I am so grateful for the hard work of everyone involved. I am so excited for people to see the show!" says Elise.

The Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts is located at 430 College Avenue in Ithaca. Admission is free.
