Rhythms of the Universe is a multi-disciplinary celebration of poetry, physics, and dance.  At this event, you will experience original spoken-word poetry, created and performed by MSU students.   These poems use imagery from Astrophysics and Relativity to convey the passion and angst of the human experience.  Stephanie Campbell will be reading some of the poems. There will be a contemporary dance piece that serves as a visual representation of the poetry.

The Rhythms of the Universe team has succeeded in blurring the lines between science and art, producing artistic creations that are heavily inspired by the most advanced science—with beautiful and moving results.  The team, composed of Poetry, Physics and Performing Arts professors, has come together to coach MSU undergrad and graduatestudents.  What you will see at this event is the end result of an 18 month cross disciplinary collaboration.

November 7 & 8, 2014 at 7 p.m.  at the Emerson Cultural Center.  This event is free.

The Language Archive, produced by the Bozeman Actors Theatre, performed at the Blackbox Theater (corner of 11th and Grant streets on the MSU campus). Performances will be October 23rd, 24th, & 25th on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3:00 p.m.

The Language Archive, directed by Will Dickerson, features Dee Dee Van Zyl, Cara Wilder, Dan Erickson and Tom Morris.  Claire McGinty rounds out the cast, with sound design by Colter Langan.

Called “a quirky, but ravishingly well-written piece that is smart, funny, deep and tender” (OC Weekly), The Language Archive tells the story of George, a linguist consumed with preserving and documenting the dying languages of far-flung cultures who, paradoxically, can’t seem to communicate with his own wife.  At turns comical and poignant, the play is an eloquent, whimsical discourse on love. The Language Archive’s dialogue has been described as “a tour de force” in which “the gulf between what's said and what isn't is rarely described and traversed with as much power as it is here…passionate…wise and wonderful” (Talkin’ Broadway).

There will be a special preview night Gala Fundraiser and Reception for BAT on Wednesday, October 15th, at the Black Box Theater at 6:30 p.m., beverages and light hors d’oeuvres will be offered along with introductory remarks by local Yellowstion Public Radio personality Chrysti the Wordsmith.  Preview audiences will also enjoy a reception with the cast following the performance. 

Tickets for the Oct. 15th Gala are $30.  Prices for performances Oct. 16th – 25th are $15 for general admission and $10 for MSU students (plus a $1 handling fee), available in advance at Cactus Records and online beginning Oct. 1st.  Tickets will also be sold at the door on performance nights, subject to availability.  For more information, visit Bozeman Actors Theatre on Facebook, or call 406-580-0374.
