Grab and Don’t Go with Christopher Myers

Christopher Myers is an artist and writer based in New York City. A widely acclaimed author of literature for young people, he is also an accomplished fine artist who has lectured and exhibited internationally. His work questions what it means to be an artist and to create art that is rooted in the experience of global cultural exchange.

Meet Myers for lunch in the Amherst College Multicultural Resource Center. Learn more about his artistic practice, his work in publishing, how his work centers historically marginalized perspectives in art and literature, and how he collaborates with artists and craftspeople across cultures and around the world.

"Intimate Distance": Five College Dance Faculty Concert

This year’s Five College Dance Faculty Concert features five faculty and guest artist works (one from each campus) that investigate human distance and intimacy. Set against the backdrop of global social and environmental crises, these performances provide ways to contemplate how we connect—or not—with our own internal landscapes, with other individuals and with our physical surroundings. The concert invites performers and audiences to consider how embodiment, movement collaboration and the community inherent to performance can provide not solutions to the difficulties we face, but rather new avenues by which to broach them.

All five pieces are premieres that either continue or initiate the artists’ choreographic investigations with Five College Dance students. Featuring new work by newer members of the Five College Dance community, this concert can be seen as a look into the future of Five College Dance.

The choreographers are:
Deborah Goffe, assistant professor of dance, Hampshire College
Barbie Diewald, assistant professor of dance, Mount Holyoke College
Sarah Lass, Smith MFA ’18, Smith College guest artist
Jenna Riegel, assistant professor of dance, Amherst College
Aston K. McCullough, assistant professor of dance science, UMass Amherst

Main Studio Theater, Hampshire College
Tickets are $5 for students/seniors and $10 for general admission, and are available online: www.fivecolleges.edu/dance
