Fleming, Odo, Return to Hartwick for Performance

October 2, 2012

Maureen Fleming and Christopher Odo will return to Hartwick College for a special performance, "The Changing Role of Art in Society" on Monday, October 8 at 7 p.m. in the Anderson Center for the Arts Theatre on the College campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Fulbright Scholars Fleming and Odo have performed their multi-discipline performance work on five continents. They were from recently being selected from all American dance companies for the National Performance Network Performing Americas Tour 2012, and have travelled from Colombia, Argentina and Uruguay to the New York City Center Fall for Dance Festival, Jacob's Pillow and the annual Dance on Camera Festival at Lincoln Center.

In "The Changing Role of Art in Society" they will present the philosophical underpinnings of their groundbreaking work through live performance, video and dance photography.
