Ensemble: Dancing in Community is an intermediate/advanced composition course where students will collaborate to produce a full weekend showcase of their personal choreographic works. In addition to their own work, students will learn repertory from Visiting Assistant Professor Danté Brown, be immersed in a multitude of master classes from professional artists and learn the administrative/business component of being an independent artist. Students who audition must have a strong background in composition and a technique of their choosing.
Auditions will take place on September 5 and 10. Students are encouraged to attend BOTH audition dates.
Written and directed by David Green '19E, God’s Issue re-imagines the biblical stories of Adam and Eve, Jesus and others to explore the relationship between God and humankind. Funny, irreverent and deeply serious, God’s Issue is intended for a diverse cast, so religious and non-religious folk of all races and gender identities are encouraged to audition. First-year and Five-College students are especially welcome! The show includes songs, but singing ability is not needed for most roles. The 10-12 actors in God’s Issue will play multiple parts, so auditions will involve reading a variety of roles. There is no need to prepare! Come read some scenes!
Students may attend auditions on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
Professor David Gloman has partnered with Kurt Heidinger, director of the Biocitizen School, to create an art event that inspires the public to imagine the unique biocultural character of the Nonotuck biome (also known as the central Connecticut River Valley) by “re-presenting” the landscapes that Orra Hitchcock depicted in the mid 19th century. Professor Gloman has located the sites where they were painted and created his own painted landscape portraits of those sites. View Gloman and Hitchcock's illustrations together in Frost Library's Mezzanine Gallery from September 4 - October 29.
The opening reception will be on September 27 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd Floor, Frost Library).
