Moving Forward Through Violent Times: The Fever
Nov 9, 2016 by Clyde The Mountain Lion
The Moving Forward Through Violent Times series will conclude with a powerful and special event: The Fever by 600 Highwaymen from New York City. This unique performance is deeply engaging as it invites the audience to co-create a work of art that considers how we respond to violence in our communities. The performance is followed by an audience conversation with the artists. The UCCS Theatre & Dance program and Galleries of Contemporary Art have collaborated with The Public Theatre in New York to bring 600 Highwaymen in residence to UCCS with performances of The Fever taking place December 1-10. This is one of the final workshops before The Fever opens in New York City in February at the Under the Radar festival.
You're invited as a participant in the Moving Forward Through Violent Times series, Chancellor Pam Shockey Zalabak in attending the premiere performance of The Fever and to be a part of the community conversation. This will happen on:
Thursday, December 1 at 7:30pm
Galleries of Contemporary Art, Centennial Hall UCCS.
This first performance is dedicated to the Moving Forward series. Our goal is to fill the audience with UCCS leaders, faculty, staff and students. For Moving Forward tickets to the December 1 performance, please contact Kee Warner directly by this Friday, Nov. 11 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are not able to attend the premier, there will be six additional performances (Dec 2-10) and a Peak FreQuency Rite of Spring concert on Dec 11. Admission is free but very limited. For additional performances, go to http://www.uccs.edu/~goca/ART/FUTURE/600-HIGHWAYMEN.html.
