As the semester winds down to a close, life seems to pull out the big guns. Failing group projects, cumulative exams, and the encroaching cold all contribute to the stress typical of college students. By the time the weekend rolls around, we’re practically begging for an opportunity to let loose and have fun. Enter: Universes.
“Thrilling”, “Dazzling”, “Overwhelming”. These are just a few of the ways Universes has been described. An exciting, engaging theatrical performance group, Universes has been “breaking the bounds of traditional theater” for more than 20 years. By combining poetry, theater, blues, jazz, hip-hop, and a relevant social/racial justice dialogue, Universes consistently wows and entertains. Their latest piece, “Live From the Edge” may be their most dynamic performance to date. With a new, never before seen repertoire based on the poetry of August Wilson, this show is going to be one to remember.
In conjunction with UtahPresents, Universes will be performing at Kingsbury Hall on Dec. 5th. Tickets are $5 with your UCard (thanks Arts Pass!), and the show starts at 7:30.
After the show, join Universes and The Party on stage for the AfterParty! Kick back, enjoy some music courtesy of K-UTE’s DJs, and chat with the cast of an award winning performing arts group. Opportunities to interact with performing artists like this are few and far between, so don’t miss out!
