The UCCS Theatre & Dance Program, the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art, and The Public Theater in New York are proud to bring 600 Highwaymen in residence to UCCS. This renowned New York-based company will workshop - with UCCS students - THE FEVER, a new work of theatre to premier in January at The Public Theater's Under the Radar Festival in New York.
THE FEVER is an amalgam of music, theatre and choreography examining how we assemble, organize and care for our bodies and the bodies around us. Is it possible to feel the pain of others? How have we become who we are? What will become of us, and will we be all right? The thrilling performance inspired by Stravinsky's Rite of Spring invites the audience to co-create a work of art that will change from night to night.
These events are part of the UCCS Moving Forward Through Violence initiative and each performance will be followed by an Audience Conversation with the artists. Join us on December 11 for a two piano concert of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, produced by the UCCS Music Program's Peak FreQuency Creative Arts Collective and UCCS Dance.
All performances take place in the campus gallery space, GOCA 1420 located in room 201 in Centennial Hall.
