Fuente Ovejuna by Lope de Vega:
A bil-lingual Spanish-English adaptation of the classical play by Lope de Vega that mirrors our current political climate: amidst Ferdinand and Isabel’s reconquest of Spain, commander Fernán Gómez de Guzmán is installed in the village of Fuente Ovejuno. But when the General attempts to rape the local women, the villagers rise up and collectively resist.

Student choreography is highlighted and celebrated in this informal concert in our large studio, specially converted to performance space for this event. Student choreographers collaborate with performers to create daring new works that reflect personal investigations into identity, purpose, fears and yearnings. This culminating experience is a yearly tradition in the department at the end of the fall semester.
