The Dominican University Performing Arts Center’s creative spirit swells in a season highlighted with multicultural music, dance, and drama. As a string quartet, Ethel’s Juilliard-trained musicians pluck a viola, a cello, and a pair of violins to their own original compositions and those of contemporary composers. These skilled performers join with Grammy–winning Native American flutist Robert Mirabal for a cross-cultural mélange of melody-making inside the Lund Auditorium, whose acoustics are regularly tested by opera-singing mimes.
In February, ears will open to the serene, multiphonic chanting and traditional dancing of the Mystical Arts of Tibet program. The Art of Dining takes the stage on February 23, with American playwright Tina Howe skewering the restaurant business like a knight jousting a giant cube of lamb. Finally in March, as winter thaws lawns’ ice sculptures of Shakespeare, classic Bharatanatyam dances of southern India blossom on stage before massive painted panels in an evocative performance entitled Sacred Earth.
