‘amor fati’ Melds Dance and Spoken Word

amor fatiCLARION, Pa. – Clarion University Theatre will present “amor fati” at 8 p.m. April 14-16 and at 2 p.m. April 17.

“amor fati” is an exhibition of aerial silks and dance in tandem with spoken material collected from Nietzsche and Epictetus writings. The philosophy of “loving one’s fate” in an eternally recurring world sparked inspiration to experiment with movement and mold into this final, main stage production for the spring ’16 semester.

Dancers are: Sam Atwell, St. Marys; Logan Honsaker, Twinsburg, Ohio; Brooke Schwabenbauer, Leeper; Paige Schwabenbauer, Leeper; and Arnita Thompson, Pittsburgh. Live voiceovers are done by: Justin Baumgarten, Philipsburg; Tori Heckert, Red Lion; Anna Matia, Pittsburgh; Betsy Novotny, Homestead; Thea Perkins, Greenville; Zack Persijn, Sarver; Colleen E. Scheerbaum, Strattanville; and Justin Yates, Harrisville.

Associate professor of theatre Ed Powers and his lighting design class are designing lights for the production, and the costume designer is theatre instructor Myra Bullington.

The performance is appropriate for all ages. Tickets are $12 for adults, $9 for children 12 and younger, and free for Clarion students with ID. For ticket information visit www.clarionuniversitytickets.com or call 814-393-ARTS.
