The Odyssey Graphic
Directed by David Richman & Julia Sommer

Love abounds, though maybe in the wrong places. He loves her, but she loves a different him, who is actually a her that loves the him that loves the her that loves him/her… get it? Mistaken identity and unfortunate love triangles run rampant in the island country of Illyria. This fast-paced comedy is full of pranks and surprises as servants play tricks on each other, and masters swoon. The only one who seems to have it all together is the Fool, who may be the wisest of them all.

This show is a perfect addition to any English or Drama curriculum.

UNH Dance Co presents SPLASH, Graphic

The ocean is vast and full of creatures that are both beautiful and fearsome. From the largest of mammals to the smallest of fish, the beauty and wonder of the water remain mystery to behold. It may seem small, but the impact of throwing that piece of trash can last a lifetime. Two dancers discover together that impact when they go beneath the waves to swim with the turtles and amazing sea creatures. Along the way, they are followed by the frightening trash creatures created by the waste that humans leave behind. They experience first-hand the devastation that plastics and other waste have wrought on the fragile habitats that exist there. The Ballet and Jazz, Tap, Aerial companies come together to tell this dynamic and important story.

This is the perfect way to jumpstart a conversation about the environment and sustainability
