Hancher Auditorium at the University of Iowa has two fantastic events coming up in October.
First, Sankai Juku brings a new performance to Hancher (and the United States!). I had the pleasure of watching this troop perform some 25 years ago at Carnegie Hall in New York. As a student of performance art and dance, it was an epiphany! For those not familiar with the breathtaking Japanese dance form of Butoh, please do yourself a favor and see this. The artistry and athleticism of the performers are always stunning
to watch. They will perform Oct 22nd for one night only.
Following this, the SITI theatre company brings The Bacchae directed by the legendary Anne Bogart to Hancher. This is a new adaptation of the Greek classic. According to their website; “Dionysus, the god of wine, ritual madness, fertility, and theater, returns in disguise to his birthplace in Greece.” Ms. Bogart will be on hand and will host a post-performance conversation. Visit https://hancher.uiowa.edu/tickets for tickets to either of these fantastic events.
