Some cups available for purchase were donated to help support the ceramics graduate student scholarship fund.

 Kent Dance Ensemble Prepares for "New View," April 5-7

NEW VIEW is a concert of jazz and modern dances choreographed by four Kent State faculty members and New York City guest artist Linda Nutter. The evening opens with Nutter's farcical Rhyme Nor Reason, a sextet first set on New York University dancers over 25 years ago.  A trio of dancers moves through an athletic conversation using intense gestures and shared body language in Hidden Dialogue, choreographed by Kent State's own Joan Meggitt, Artistic/Executive Director of Antaeus Dance, Cleveland. The first half of the concert closes with Assistant Professor Erin LaSala's quirky new trio Femmes Fortes, a high-energy study of the inner "superhero" who lives inside us all.

After intermission we'll have you groovin' in your seats with Artistic Director Kimberly Karpanty's new concert jazz work that blends sophisticated wit with a vigorous, stylized vocabulary. Each of the five performers brought her own unique personality and movement flair to the work, fashioned as a reply to two tracks by Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. This season, the ten new, hard-working young women in the pre-professional student dance company will be joined by fourth through sixth grade music students from Defer Intermediate School in Streetsboro for a special treat! Emerging unexpectedly from the audience, the Defer Dancers will approach the stage and perform short creative dances of their own derision, made in intensive after-school workshops.

The evening will close with Associate Professor Barbara Allegra Verlezza's vigorous "Monkey Brains and Paper Chains," performed by all ten members of the Ensemble. This spirited and dynamic dance explores the concepts of an indecisive, unsettled, and anxious 'monkey brain' complicated by the fragile or restraints (paper chains) that impede the ability for one to make changes in thought or behavior.

The concert will be performed in E. Turner Stump Theatre, located in the Music and Speech Center, 1325 Theatre Drive, on the Kent Campus. Friday and Saturday evening performances begin at 8 p.m. and the Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. To reserve tickets, please call 330-672-ARTS (2787).

Theatre BFA students Win Top Honors

Two BFA lighting design students won top honors in this year’s South Eastern Theatre Conference Design Competition. Senior Carly Shiner received First Place for her lighting design of Rocky Horror Show, performed on campus in November of 2012 in Stump Theatre. Margaret Peebles, a junior BFA student, received Third Place for her lighting design of Big Love performed in the Fall 2012 on the Wright Curtis stage.

The students were among only four awards given from a field of entries from colleges and universities throughout the nation. The two students were particularly excited to have their work judged by a panel of renowned Broadway Designers, led by the Tony award winning Todd Rosenthal. Joining him were distinguished judges Michael Lincoln, lighting and theatre design and Costume designer Leslie Yarmo.

 “We are so proud of our talented students and their work!” stated Cynthia Stillings, Director of the School of Theatre and Dance.  Their advisor is faculty Lighting Designer Jakyung Seo.
