SCHOOL OF THE ARTS SCHEDULES  WALKING TOUR ON APRIL 3

Area residents are invited to explore the spaces where the arts happen during a tour of Texas Woman’s University’s Denton campus.

TWU’s School of the Arts will host the TWU Arts Triangle Walking Tour from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 3.  The tour, which is free and open to the public, will begin at the Redbud Theater Complex on the northwest side of Hubbard Hall.  TWU dance, drama, art and music students will perform at various locations as the tour continues through the campus before ending with an open-studio reception and free refreshments in the Fine Arts Building.

For more information about the tour, visit http://www.twu.edu/arts-triangle/ or call 81-2086.

Students from the TWU Dance Department will begin the tour with a performance at 5 p.m. in the Redbud Theater.  In a change of place, the dancers will use the audience seating as their stage.  The audience then will be led to the east steps of Hubbard Hall for “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind,” an abbreviated adaptation of the work by The Neo-Futurists.  In this version, actors race the clock, performing five plays in 10 minutes.

The tour also includes a performance by Sruti Kanti Swara, the TWU Balinese Gamelan Angklung Ensemble.  The gamelan anklung is an orchestra of Indonesian percussion instruments.  Dance Department students will perform a piece outside the Administration Conference Tower (ACT) building, as will the TWU Percussion Ensemble.  Audience members will be invited to join in with the ensemble as they explore the possibilities of music at the ACT ventilation louvers.

Additional performances include works by the TWU Dance Lab, the Brass Sextet conducted by Joseph Pinson, and the TWU Concert Choir performing “Ave Maria.”  Audience members also will receive a backstage pass to the studios of painters and photographers.  Artists will have work on display and will be available to answer questions.

The final stop on the tour will be a reception in the foyer of the Fine Arts Building, with free refreshments.  Work by visual art students, as well as recordings of performances by the dance and drama departments, also will be featured.  Audience members may tour the building, exploring the various studios that will be open with art on display.
