Drift at Wesleyan CFA

The Jonah Center invites you to a
special eco-art event at Wesleyan


Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts Presents the
Liz Lerman Dance Exchange: DRIFT
Dance Exchange Performs a New Work About Food, Land
and How They Change Over Time

Co-Sponsored by the College of the Environment
Discounted Tickets for Jonah Center Members
When: Friday & Saturday, October 1 & 2, 8pm

Where: CFA Theater, located on the Wesleyan University campus at 283 Washington Terrace in Middletown, CT

About: Farmland becomes a strip mall. Time passes. Businesses move out and a church takes over. The corn field that yielded to a supermarket is now a church sanctuary--complete with automatic doors. By turns comic, provocative, and wistful, Drift moves forward and backward in time. What happens when land changes hands? What becomes of people and their jobs? Where does our food come from? And what are California peaches doing in Georgia?

Five years after the premiere of Ferocious Beauty: Genome, the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange returns with a new work by company member Cassie Meador. They will also be performing excerpts from from How to Move a Mountain, which examines how our resources come to us and Blueprints of Relentless Nature which explores the concept of “pure” movement. The company is known for creating groundbreaking dance works that make meaningful connections between people and art and are performed by a multi-generational company. Presented in conjunction with the campus-wide exploration, Feet to the Fire: Feast or Famine.
