The first night of October offered a few options for students looking for entertainment. The CFA theater hosted the renowned Liz Lerman Dance Exchange performing “Drift,” a mesmerizing piece about the passage of time in a single Georgia town, while the first show of the Second Stage season, “Becoming Twenty Something: A Cabaret Evening,” went up in the ’92, featuring six student performers from four class years. Those more in the mood for creating art, rather than watching it, might have attended the Contra Dance at Beckham Hall (I hear there was some pretty impressive facial hair).
There were arts events abound Saturday night, with things going on all over campus. Psi U hosted the dance showcase, featuring nine student dance groups. Student bands were also out in force: 200 Church rocked out to Wordsmith, Fly Machine, and Bones Complex, while Eclectic jammed to Bear in Heaven, Oberhofer, and Almonds and Elephants. If somehow none of these seemed interesting, there were second chances to check out both Liz Lerman and the Cabaret.
