On February 1, the performance For You will bring together music, sound, video, and installation art in an original composition in the atrium of the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Starting from 6 pm, groups of visitors will be hosted in 20-minute sequences during the 2-hour cyclical performance. For You takes participants on a symbolic journey involving a 16-foot boat, a wooden pavilion, and a room of dancing shadows and projections that deals thematically with the idea of offering and receiving.
