1. Big Ten New Play Initiative: Good Kids

When: Friday, March 06, 2015 7:30 PM - Saturday, March 07, 2015 7:30 PM
Where: Clarice Smith PAC : Kay Theatre
Event Type(s): Theatre Performance

UMD has partnered with the Big Ten Conference schools to create a new playwriting and performance initiative. Known as the Big Ten Theatre Chairs, the group will commission, produce and publicize new plays in an effort to influence the national dialogue about women.

The program's first commissioned work, Good Kids by Naomi Iizuka, explores a casual sexual encounter
gone wrong, and its very public aftermath. Who is telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you
believe? What does that say about you? This play responds to actual events that went on to generate a
national dialogue.

There are myriad ways to respond to the digital privacy crisis that is currently plaguing our society.

This conversation will be preceded by a performance of an original work by UMD students entitled "The Street Scene 2015." What do the streets look like to young adults who know that with the advent of surveillance technologies the street is watching them as much as they are watching it?

11. The Westerlies brass quartet blends genres

When: Saturday, March 07, 2015 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Where: Clarice Smith PAC : Gildenhorn Recital Hall
Event Type(s): Concert

The Westerlies are a New York-based brass quartet consisting of four friends from Seattle, Washington. Avid explorers of cross-genre territory, The Westerlies are dedicated to the cultivation of a new brass quartet repertoire that exists in the ever-narrowing gap between American folk music, jazz, classical and indie rock.

The Westerlies have premiered more than 40 original works for brass quartet since their 2011 inception and crafted an approach that Dave Douglas has described as "Swinging, grooving, clean and tricky playing. This is the group that, once you've heard them, you'll realize they always needed to exist. Unique, original, exciting. And simply killing in the best sense."
