7:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ Bondurant Auditorium, Preston Hall
Radford University Department of Dance premieres a new work, "Elegy." Directed by Amy VanKirk, this evening of modern dance is inspired by the novel "The Things They Carried," by Tim O'Brien, as well as family stories of the Vietnam War from VanKirk and the performers. This work was created as a part of the new transfer and freshman seminar dance course and features the Department of Music Madrigal Singers, directed by David Otis Castonguay. The piece is sponsored in part by the Radford University Scholar Citizen Initiative and will be followed by a brief talk back about the artistic process. "Elegy" is a part of the The Big Read, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, which includes events all over the New River Valley.
