The Performing Arts Department is hosting its first interdisciplinary symposium with support from The Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts.
We invite you to join us September 13-15 for a series of performances, presentations, and discussions to address the theoretical and practical questions around performance re-creation in dance, drama, and the wide-spectrum of performance behavior.
Participants include Judith Chazin-Bennahum, Branislav Jakovljević, James Jordan, Chelsea Knight, Larry Lavender, Paul Menzer, Rebecca Schneider, Mark Tribe, and Monika Weiss.
The symposium is free and open to the public. Please take a moment and fill out the short form under the "Registration" page if you plan to attend the event.
