’Doggie Hamlet’ by Ann Carlson

- Location: nevermoor farm located at 593 Lever Hill Rd. Andov
(9:00 AM - 10:15 AM)
Recent Doris Duke Artist awardee, artist, and choreographer Ann Carlson will preview her work "Doggie Hamlet" at nevermoor farm in Andover.

Approximately one hour in length, "Doggie Hamlet" takes place in a lush green meadow and is performed by four (human) performers, an American Sign Language interpreter, three herding dogs, and a flock of sheep. This interdisciplinary work combines contemporary dance, classic narrative structure, and elements from competitive sheep herding trials.

"Doggie Hamlet" mines the territory of human and non-human relationship, delves into the hierarchy of domestication and wildness, and explores instinct, memory, family, and loss.

The preview performances will take place at 9 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 3 and at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4, at the nevermoor farm located at 593 Lever Hill Road, Andover.

Free Admission. Questions? performs@alfred.edu

Topic: "What Yo Momma Said - An Intrusive Approach to Retention HEOP Style"

This structure allows them to navigate the various "systems" they encounter and succeed at AU and beyond.

"What If Magic Were Real?: Modern Technology, Love Potions, Veritaserum, Elixirs of Life, Liquid Luck, and Liquid Death"
Dr. John D’Angelo
With rare exceptions (like polyjuice potion), potions with the capabilities of those in Harry Potter exist in real life. Other forms of "magic," such as summoning spells, the Imperius Curse, and even flying are not 100% fiction. Together, we will journey through some descriptions and explanations of some of the "magic" that surrounds us daily, and which we rarely notice.
