With Goat Island Performance Group

Wex Lab

These creative workshops can be for teens, tweens, or multigenerational groups. The workshops are kept small to provide individual attention—so register promptly.

Sun, Jan 25, 2004 1 PM

Explore performance art with Goat Island, an internationally recognized performance art group from Chicago. This program is a collaboration between the Wexner Center and Ohio State's College of the Arts.

Admission is free, but advance registration is required.

Goat Island's performances combine text, movement, objects, and sound to explore complex issues in contemporary culture. Their current work-in-progress, titled When will the September roses bloom? and presented on campus January 22 to 24, questions our place in a damaged world and our aptitude at repairing it.

Earlier in January, you'll have the opportunity to attend an open rehearsal session and see a full performance of the work-in-progress. During the workshop on January 25, you'll collaborate with Goat Island to create original work. The workshop will culminate in a short performance.

Advance registration is required. To register and for details please call 614 688-3986 or e-mail scasto@wexarts.org.

Program presented by the Wexner Center and Ohio State's College of the Arts.
