Events in December at Lewis Center for the Arts

(PRINCETON, NJ) -- The Lewis Center for the Arts has a busy schedule in December with the Princeton Dance Festival; Play, presented by the Lewis Center for the Arts Program in Theater; Cyberfeminism Index: Book Reading and Conversation; Reading by Raven Leilani and Creative Writing Seniors; Media Arts Show, presented by the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Visual Arts; and the Fall Student Reading, presented by the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Creative Writing. Here is a look at their events for December.

Princeton Dance Festival, presented by the Lewis Center for the Arts - performances on December 2 at 8:00pm; December 3 at 2:00pm & 8:00pm; and December 4 at 2:00pm in the Berlind Theatre at McCarter Theatre Center, 91 University Place in Princeton. The 2022 Princeton Dance Festival features new and repertory works by nationally and internationally recognized choreographers Ronald K. Brown, Davalois Fearon, Sun Kim, Michael J. Love, Susan Marshall, Rashaun Mitchell & Silas Riener, and Caili Quan, performed by more than 50 Princeton dance students. The program includes choreography that features tap, ballet, dance theater, West African/modern, and post-modern genres. A Relaxed Performance will be offered on December 4.

Admission: Open to the public. Tickets are $12 in advance of show dates, $17 purchased the day of performances at the box office, and $10 for students available through the McCarter Box Office at mccarter.org All guests must either be fully vaccinated, or have recently tested negative (via PCR within 72 hours or via rapid antigen test within 8 hours of the scheduled visit) and be prepared to show proof if asked, or wear a face covering when indoors and around others.The Berlind Theatre is an accessible venue with an assistive listening system. The December 2 performance will be open captioned. The December 4 performance will be a relaxed performance. Guests in need of other access accommodations are invited to contact the Lewis Center at least one week in advance at lewiscenter@princeton.edu

Play, presented by the Lewis Center for the Arts Program in Theater. Performances on December 2 at 8:00pm; December 3 at 6:00pm & 8:00pm; December 8 & 9 at 8:00pm in the Wallace Theater at Lewis Arts complex on the Princeton University campus. Play is a devised theater piece researched, developed and created by student performers, writers and designers, through choreography, interviews with athletes and absurd exercises in endurance and teamwork. An ensemble of 12 achieves their flow states, runs relays, and describes water polo using the objects found in a student’s backpack. Sailing and tennis become metaphors for how many of us find ourselves pulled and caught between cultures for the sake of our achievements. An 8th grade Lacrosse game frames a commentary on difference, parenting and coaching. A list of superstitions becomes a choreography of possible wins; a litany of meaningless advice and a cheer for losing give us box seats on a whole new game. Led and directed by Lecturer in Theater Aaron Landsman and associated directed/choreographed by Princeton alumna Ogemdi Ude, Class of 2016.

Admission: Open to the public. Tickets are $12 in advance of show dates, $17 purchased the day of performances at the box office, and $10 for students available through University Ticketing at tickets.princeton.edu All guests must either be fully vaccinated, or have recently tested negative (via PCR within 72 hours or via rapid antigen test within 8 hours of the scheduled visit) and be prepared to show proof if asked, or wear a face covering when indoors and around others. The Wallace Theater is an accessible venue with an assistive listening system.
