Random With a Purpose, UCSC’s annual dance showcase, is directed, choreographed, designed, and performed by students each winter quarter. The theme for the production's 32nd anniversary is “The End." Through multiple genres of dance, this production will investigate where to find endings in the body, performance space, and music. It will also explore the unique ways in which we all experience moments coming to a close and how we move into new beginnings.

Directed by Logan Montgomery and Isabella Rico.
