Special Event

Saturday, March 19, 8 pm - 10 pm
Apse

Following the keynote addresses, this multimedia performance created by Sara Adlerstein (UM School of Natural Resources and Environment), Evan Chambers, Jessica Fogel, Joseph Gramley (UM School of Music, Theatre, and Dance), Doug Hesseltine (UM School of Art and Design), and Keith Taylor (UM College of Literature, Science, and the Arts) takes as its overarching structure the cycle of water from rain to earth to river to lake to ocean to clouds to rain. Focusing on our local water source, the Huron River, as a central narrative, the work features music, dance, video, painting, and spoken word.  Initially created in 2008, this presentation will be an adaptation of Mapping the River specifically designed for the Apse. This performance is part of the opening events for the two-day colloquium on the role of the arts in environmental education and stewardship.

This program is open to the public and does not require advance registration. For more information about the colloquium, please visit the listing for March 20 or contact Sara Adlerstein at adlerste@umich.edu.
