SHAPIRO & SMITH DANCE *

Thursday, January 5, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

- Fesler-Lampert Event

ADULTS $15, STUDENTS $9

Since its founding in 1985, Minneapolis- based Shapiro & Smith Dance has earned a reputation for performing tales of beauty and biting wit that run the gamut from searingly provocative to absurdly hilarious. Dancing with breathtaking physicality and emotional depth they have earned an international reputation for virtuosity, substance, craft, and pure abandonment.

THURGOOD *

Presented by Illusion Theater

Wednesday, February 15, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

- Fesler-Lampert Event

ADULTS $15, STUDENTS $9

This powerful play follows Thurgood Marshall’s life from childhood in the back alleys of Baltimore to the position of Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. Along the way, this larger-than-life figure became one of the key architects of the American Civil Rights Movement that included the landmark Brown v. Board of Education cases as well as other key voting-rights cases. Tracking a journey of epic proportions, THURGOOD is an eye-opening, humorous, and uplifting portrait of a true American hero.

LIVINGSTON TAYLOR

Thursday, March 16, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

- Acoustic Roots Event

 

ADULTS $20, STUDENTS $12

Back when he was just 13, Livingston Taylor picked up his first guitar, and began a forty-year career of songwriting, performing, recording, and teaching that continues today. Raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina where his father was a dean at UNC, Livingston comes from a musical family that includes siblings Alex, James, Kate and Hugh. His top forty hits include “I Will Be in Love with You” and “I’ll Come Running,” among others. His songs “I Can Dream of You” and “Boatman” were both recorded by his brother James. Livingston’s creative output has continued unabated. His musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres—folk, pop, gospel, jazz—and from upbeat storytelling to touching ballads.

* This activity is funded, in part, by the Minnesota State Arts Board through the arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment vote of the people of Minnesota.
