November 2017: iEcho: Bodies and Technology


Echo chambers, robots, algorithms, live feeds, sharing, oversharing, augmented reality, fake
reality and artificial intelligence are technological phenomena that shape our lives and create
slippery definitions of reality. iEcho examines some of these topics through dance, video and
audience interaction. Dance works created by faculty members and by guest-artist Nichole
Canuso examine and articulate how our bodies and selves navigate the shape-shifting effects of
technology and social media.

March 2018: Buried Child  (replacing Clybourne Park)

Last summer, America lost one of it’s most distinctive and powerful dramatic voices with the death of Sam Shepard at age 73.  In remembrance of this remarkable playwright and actor, the Department of Theatre and Dance, with Dickinson’s Mermaid Players, will present what many consider to be his masterpiece: the 1978 Pulitzer prize-winning Buried Child.  This production will replace the previously announced Clybourne Park, and will be performed March 2, 3 5, and 6 in Mathers Theatre on the campus of Dickinson College.  (If you do not wish to see Buried Child, any previously purchased tickets for Clybourne Park may be easily exchanged or refunded by contacting the Department of Theatre and Dance at (717) 245-1239.)
