Explore the arts on TWU Arts Triangle Walking Tour
TWU’s School of the Arts will host the fifth annual TWU Arts Triangle Walking Tour from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4.
The tour, which is free and open to the public, will begin at the east porch of Hubbard Hall in the center of the campus. TWU dance, drama, art and music students will perform at various locations as the tour winds through the north end of campus. Dance students will lead the audience to each stop along the route, ending with a reception and free refreshments at the Redbud Theater Complex.
The tour will begin with a collaborative performance by students from dance, biology and chemistry, then move north to the west side of the Blagg-Huey Library for performances by dance, music and drama students in conjunction with Lloyd Caldwell, this year’s visiting artist.
In a career spanning 30 years, Mr. Caldwell, a member of the theatre faculty at Oklahoma State University, has appeared off-Broadway and in feature films and television. His credits include roles at the American Place Theatre, The Roundabout Theatre, La Mama Theatre Company and a national tour as John Adams in “1776.” His acting film credits include “The Group,” “Dropped Frames,” “Resistance” and “A Great Day.” Since 1986, he has choreographed stage combat for 93 professional productions and 120 university productions in Canada, the United States and Europe.
Mr. Caldwell will work with students through the week leading up to the Arts Triangle Walk on performances and workshops in drama and dance.
Moving around the library to the north through the University Gardens, drama students will present a one-act piece, and dance students will present an improvisational performance.
As the tour moves to the lawn area north of the Blagg-Huey Library and fountain, the audience will see oversized canvases being painted and revised. TWU School of the Arts students and Lloyd Caldwell will present the final performance at the Bernice Abreo Fischer amphitheater,
A reception with refreshments will follow in the foyer of the Redbud Theater Complex. A brass quintet will play various selections during the reception.
