"Knotworks" is the most recent iteration of a 5-yr. collaboration between Cuba native Jorge Benitez, an Asst. Professor in the Communication Arts Dept. at VCU & Reni Gower, a Professor in the Painting & Printmaking Dept. at VCU. Through complex patterning & laborious processes, their works reveal the universal language of sacred geometry. Gower's work resonates with geometric constructs intrinsic to Islamic tilework motifs that reflect the mathematical & geometric basis of weaving. Whether woven, cut, or tied, "Knotworks" resonates with ancient observations, discoveries, & traditions consequential & far-reaching throughout the visual arts & the sciences.
January 4 - January 6 @ Chrysler Hall
In 1996 an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway…and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony® Award winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters — love.
