Faith Will Be Rewarded… Remember and reflect through dance and theatre on the calamitous events of our world with "Empty Sky…The Rising" Preston Auditorium
Tuesday Jan 29
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
You are invited to remember and reflect on our challenging current events at a video presentation of "Empty Sky…The Rising," a dance/theatre experience choreographed in 2005 by RU Assistant Professor of Dance Bob Boross. A high quality video of the evening length piece, which is danced to a score of twelve songs by rock composer Bruce Springsteen, will be shown in Bondurant Auditorium, Preston Hall, on Tuesday, January 29, 2012, from 7-9pm. The piece explores hardships endured by many as a result of the events of September 11, but its theme of loss and longing is relevant to the questioning of faith that results from any catastrophic event. The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with Professor Boross.
