The Constans Theatre is a performing arts venue located on the University of Florida campus in Gainesville, Florida. The facility first opened in 1967, and currently serves as a venue for musical concerts, theater, dance, and lectures. The facility, upon completion, was named for Henry Philip Constans, the founder of the Florida Players (originally called the dramatic club of the University of Florida). He also headed the Department of Speech from 1931 to 1967 during which time he had the responsibility for the Florida Players both in advisory and directing capacities. Professor Constans and several other speech department faculty members served as directors of various plays presented by the student organization. Management of the Florida Players shifted from the Department of Speech to the Theatre Department when this department was created in 1971.

Renovated in 2004 and adjacent to the Reitz Union, the H. Philip Constans Theatre houses a 415-seat proscenium used as the main stage and primary producing space.[1]

The venue is located on McCarty Drive, and is adjacent to the J. Wayne Reitz Union. Constans Theatre is a sub-venue of the Nadine McGuire Pavilion and Dance Pavilion, and is part of the School of Theatre and Dance.[2]

  • UF West African Dance Group Celebrates 20th Year

Transcription

My name is Larry Rosalez-Lewis and I've been dancing with Agbedidi for seven years. I don't think I would at all be interested in African dance or performing African dance or doing African choreography if I had never been involved in this group. My goal for Agbedidi is to attract a lot of students from all over the campus. That's what we're doing right now, but I wanna more to see that, you know, you don't have to be dance major, but major from all the campus. It's really beautiful to see how dance in itself just reunites everyone together and how you don't have to be a specific culture to dance a specific style. I like that I'm a part of the West African movement and to see other people as well being able to dance, it just kind of unites us and we just get to enjoy it together. I just remember at the very beginning I saw this as the most fun thing ever. I never saw it as work, I never saw it as a distraction, I thought it was very cool to have live drums that could go forever. It's a big difference, you know, having live music versus a recording because actually it's a funny thing because with live drumming you actually feel the beats coming from the drums so it actually gives you more lively feeling to it so it's like your body, your body actually wants to move...so if you're sitting down it's like, ewe, you can feel the drums beating against you. The live drummers at the performance this is what every African dream about. If you don't have live drummers, as a performer, like I've been doing this for many many years, if I don't hear the live drummers I won't feel right on the stage, I need to hear live drums so that's why it's important to have live drummers at the Agbedidi show. To have this experience and kind of some connection with African people, African choreographers, African musicians, African traditions, I think it's just a valuable part of my life and can be enriching for anyone.
