Luther College presents 'Trust Me' dance performance March 30-April 1

Exploring themes of trust through the intersection of dance, music and theater, Luther College's Visual and Performing Arts will perform a dance production of, "Trust Me," March 30-April 1 in the Jewel Theatre in Luther's Center for the Arts.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30, 9:30 p.m. Friday, March 31, and 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 1.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Purchase tickets at the door, online at www.tickets.luther.edu or via the Luther Ticket Office, (563) 387-1357 or [email protected]. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door one hour prior to performances.

The austerity of the stage production gives the audience a chance to be a part of the raw, human experience and to glimpse into the souls of the performers and creators as they share, through sound and movement, how they see, hear, feel, question and understand the essential force without which society would crumble-trust.

The performance's text comes from various sources, including scientific essays, political speeches, interviews and a short story by John Updike.

All music in the performance is original and performed live. Created through group collaboration, the movement is under the direction of Luther College visiting assistant professor of dance, Andrea Vazquez-Aguirre.

Performers include current Luther students: Inga Aleckson, class of 2018; Madison Brauer, class of 2019; Kelly Dawson, class of 2017; Maya Evans, class of 2019, Danica Kafton, 2018 and Emma Kmoch, class of 2019; alumna Kate Blair, class of 2008; community members Matthew Andreas and Erin McCargar; and Luther professors Jane Hawley and Vazquez-Aguirre.
