Wirtz Center Presents "Dracula: A Feminist Revenge Fantasy, Really" Feb. 23-March 3
In this thrilling new adaptation that bounces between horror and humor, playwright Kate Hamill confronts the sexism in Bram Stoker’s original work. By upending the familiar tropes of damsels in distress and dashing villains, Hamill reimagines the vampire classic as a full-throated feminist battle cry driving a gleeful stake through the heart of toxic masculinity.  

Run-time is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes including one intermission.
Strong language, haze, strobe lights, blood, violence, sexual assault, partial nudity, suicide, infanticide




Where: Ethel M. Barber Theater, 30 Arts Circle Drive

Block Museum Presents "Actions for the Earth" Exhibit Now Open

Block Museum Presents "Actions for the Earth" Exhibit Now Open
Actions for the Earth: Art, Care & Ecology considers how artists use strategies of kinship, healing, and restorative intervention to foster a deeper awareness of our interconnectedness with the earth. This exhibition turns to an intergenerational group of eighteen artists and collectives to engage with the overlapping worldwide crises of our time.

The works on view in Actions for the Earth foreground reciprocity and exchange, offering healing practices of regeneration, care, and nurture. Simple actions suggest new ways to dream, listen, and remember, and in doing so reconnect to ourselves and the earth as well as one another. 

Open from January 26 - July 7
