Southern Theatre, Columbus

Choreogrpahed by Susan Petry and Danced by OSU dancers, an all-women creative team brings a fresh vision to Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, in a modern, tradition-breaking interpretation of this beloved work.

Untamed Space, Renegade Performance Group and choreographer André M. Zachery
Wexner Center for the Arts
Thur 27-Sat 29 8:00PM – Sunday 2:00PM 

This interdisciplinary dance work is the latest installment in Zachery’s AFROFUTURISM series, an ongoing exploration and reinterpretation of black culture through technology. Combining abstract projections, original music and sound design, and movement styles that range from modern to hip-hop, Untamed Space traces the trajectory of marooning and migration across time and space. Drawing in part on the choreographer’s own family history, this work will transport you from Haiti to Mississippi, and, “arriving at my point of departure in Chicago,” as Zachery explains, propel you forward “into the Afrofuture,” a “space where Blackness [is] unlimited.”

The American College Dance Association (ACDA) adjudication
Saturday December 1st

The American College Dance Association (ACDA) hosts nine regional festivals annually.  College and University dance programs send their students to take classes from master teachers, participate in seminars and attend concerts of professional and student work. A panel of three adjudicators judges two or three works from each school, choosing a few for a final Gala concert.

Our adjudication for the three student-choreographed works that will represent OSU Dance at ACDA is Saturday Dec 1. We will consider new student works as well as dances presented last year.

This year our regional ACDA festival is at Wittenberg University in Springfield, OH, March 1-4 2019. Due to its proximity to Columbus, we will travel there daily, saving on hotel costs.  This will allow us to send more students.

Digital Projects: Getting Started (Presentation)

Register: https://library.osu.edu/researchcommons/event/digital-projects-started/

When it comes to getting a digital research project underway, “knowledge is power”. In this presentation for humanities and arts researchers, Dr. Leigh Bonds discusses the process of getting a digital project started- from project scoping to determining the best platform or tool, from managing digital content to developing a proof of concept.

Who: OSU Humanities and Arts faculty and graduate students
When: Tuesday, September 25, 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Digital Projects: Management (Presentation)

Register: https://library.osu.edu/researchcommons/event/digital-projects-management

Whether a digital research project involves a team of collaborators or a single researcher, having a “best laid” work plan often helps prevent things from going “awry”. In this presentation for humanities and arts researchers, Dr. Leigh Bonds reviews developing a work plan- breaking down a project into steps, assigning tasks, setting deadlines, determining benchmarks, etc.- and tracking progress.

Presenter: Dr. Leigh Bonds, Digital Humanities Librarian
Who: OSU Humanities and Arts faculty and graduate students
When: Thursday, October 25, 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Where: Research Commons, 3rd floor of 18th Avenue Library

The Department of Theatre: Twelfth Night; or What You Will
Location: Thurber Theatre, Drake Performance and Event Center, 1849 Cannon Dr., Columbus, OH 43210
Dates:
Friday, September 28, 2018 – 10 a.m.
Friday, September 28, 2018 – 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, September 29, 2018 – 3 p.m.
Saturday, September 29, 2018 – 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, September 30, 2018 – 3 p.m.

William Shakespeare is believed to have written Twelfth Night as entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. The play is centered on twins Viola and Sebastian, who are shipwrecked on Illyria. Viola, believing her brother is dead, disguises herself as Cesario and enters the service of Duke Orsino, whom she falls in love with. Orsino is in love with Countess Olivia who falls in love with Cesario. This misaligned love triangle becomes a quadrangle when Sebastian enters the picture and receives a proposal from Olivia who believes he’s Cesario.
Ohio State’s production is set in the Caribbean during Carnival, the season of revelry that traditionally begins at Twelfth Night and ends at Lent. The play shares with Carnival mistaken identity, disguise, and a ‘world turned upside down.’
The performances of Twelfth Night in September are public showings before the production goes on tour to area middle and high schools.

Ticket Information:
General Public: $20; Ohio State Faculty, Staff and Alumni Association: $18; Senior Citizens: $18; Students: $15; Children (K – 12): $15. Contact The Ohio State University Theatre Box Office at (614) 292-2295 for tickets.
