Workshop | Origami Meetup Group


A group for people to come together and share in the beautiful art of Origami - the ancient art of folding various mediums, most commonly paper. The word comes from the combination of the Japanese verb oru (to fold) and the noun kami (paper). Other materials often folded are fabric, wire mesh, sheet metal, tissue, thin plastic, cardboard, and straws. Origami, from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper" is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word "origami" is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin. The goal is to transform a flat square sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques.

Dance Performance | Runs the Gamut: Exploring the Creative Legacy of Merce Cunningham


Merce Cunningham Dance Company alum Silas Riener and undergraduate dance students present a performance and lecture-demonstration of Cunningham’s technique and compositional tools of chance procedure and indeterminacy. Led by Riener, this new generation of dancers will showcase the legendary choreographer’s groundbreaking contributions to the field, and reveal the possibilities that emerge through new experiments. Mercier Philip "Merce" Cunningham (1919 – 2009) was an American dancer and choreographer who was at the forefront of American modern dance for more than 50 years. He is also notable for his frequent collaborations with artists of other disciplines, including musicians John Cage and David Tudor, and artists Robert Rauschenberg and Bruce Nauman. Works that he produced with these artists had a profound impact on avant-garde art beyond the world of dance. As a choreographer, teacher and leader of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Cunningham had a profound influence on modern dance. Many dancers who trained with Cunningham formed their own companies. They include Paul Taylor, Remy Charlip, Viola Farber, Charles Moulton, Karole Armitage, Robert Kovich, Foofwa d'Imobilité, Kimberly Bartosik, Flo Ankah, Jan Van Dyke, Jonah Bokaer, and Alice Reyes.
