High School Appreciation Day at CofC Nov. 18, 2018

On behalf of the College of Charleston Department of Theatre and Dance, SOA dancers are invited to participate in their first High School Appreciation Day on November 18, 2018. This event includes a free masterclass with faculty, the opportunity to tour facilities and meet current students, and see their dance concert Witness. The masterclass is 10:30am-12pm in CATO 333. Tours of our department led by current students and faculty are happening every half hour between 12-1:30pm, and the performance begins at 2pm in the Emmett Robinson Theatre. If you are interested in participating in this day, please contact Ms. T.

They are offering a special discounted ticket rate for Witness of $12 per student. This rate is good for the entire run of the show, regardless if you can attend the High School Appreciation Day. Those interested in the discounted tickets can reserve/purchase
tickets through Box Office Manager Marie Oleksiak at oleksiakm@cofc.edu (please
mention the High School Appreciation Day).

Witness is a dynamic exploration of our social responsibility to speak out against injustice. Set against themes of social justice and equity, faculty and guest choreographers explore the importance of standing witness to life events that shape our world and define our times. This year our guest artist is Vincent Thomas, Professor of Dance at Towson University at Director of VT Dance. The concert also features the
Labanotation reconstruction of Charles Weidman’s 1936 iconic modern dance work Lynchtown. Performances are November 16th and 17th at 7:30pm, and November 18th at 2:00pm. The Emmett Robinson Theatre is located in the Simons Center on 54 St. Philip Street. The Friday show will include a brief artist talkback immediately following the performance.
