Avner the Eccentric: Exceptions to Gravity 7:00 PM

Avner the Eccentric: Exceptions to Gravity 7:00 PM7:00 PM - Paul Creative Arts Center Johnson Theatre: TICKETS FOR THIS EVENT ARE FREE Avner Eisenberg in Exceptions to Gravity is a reminder of the theatrical power that can reside in a single charismatic performer who touches the heart. A master of the art of physical comedy, Avner weaves a spell of poetic simplicity in a show of hilarious predicaments. Avner Eisenberg was described by New York Magazine as “a clown for the thinking man.” His show Avner the Eccentric was a hit of the 1984-1985 Broadway season. He appeared again on Broadway in Ghetto and The Comedy of Errors. Avner is widely known for his scene-stealing portrayal of the holy man in the Michael Douglas film The Jewel of the Nile. Avner studied with Jacques Lecoq from 1971 to 1974. Since then, he has developed a unique physical approach to comedy and acting that he teaches in workshops around the world. Avner continues to tour his one-man show internationally and has won awards at the Edinburgh Festival, the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, and the Festival Internacional de Pallassos in Barcelona. He won the “Snow Star” for comedy in Switzerland, and the “Lachmesse” award in Germany. There will also be a workshop on Sat Feb 8 from 1-4pm. There will be a sign-up sheet posted for that.

Dance Concert Performance 7:00 PM

Dance Concert Performance 7:00 PM7:00 PM - Paul Creative Arts Center Johnson Theatre: 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. Choreography: Ballet: Assaf Benchetrit and Susan Endrizzi Choreography: Jazz, Tap, & Aerial: Gay Nardone and Mary Beth Marino
