|9 Evenings re-presented – May 7
In October 1966, a series of 10 performances called 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering was held in New York City. The artists included, among many others, former Cornish faculty member John Cage, Lucinda Childs, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Rauschenberg, and Robert Whitman. They worked in collaboration with more than 40 engineers and scientists to develop and adapt technical equipment for use as an integral part of the performances. Now, students and faculty of Cornish, embodying the collaborative and interdisciplinary spirit of 9 Evenings, come together to re-create the evening from diverse backgrounds in media arts, theater, and music. Limited seating, 8:00 PM, MCC Room 109. Free.
