09.27.17 | Comment?


Big Tent is a portable multimedia performance environment – 360º of sound and visuals integrated with live performers and audience. http://www.thebigtent.org

Visit Alumni Hall (in the IMU) on Thursday, September 21 2017 for performances of music, film, multi-screen video projection and dance by IU students and faculty. Big Tent co-creators Robin Cox and Benjamin Day Smith will be available throughout the day for questions and discussion.

12 noon – 7:00 pm: Big Tent demonstrations and performances

8 – 9:15 pm: HOURGLASS -a live music/dance improvisation community event in the 360 degrees of sound and video of BIG TENT


Earlier in the summer I had a meeting with Robin Cox and Benjamin Smith, both IUPUI faculty. They were asked to bring their Big Tent system to Lotus Festival next fall and wanted to start a dialogue with IU faculty and students about creating new work to premiere at the 2018 Lotus Festival. The three of us see this opportunity as a chance to get people from SOAAD, Music, INFO, Theater, and MSCH together and collaborate on a variety of projects. 

Colleagues from MSCH, Music, and SOAAD have answered the call and will show/perform their work next week. Bring a friend, bring your students, or simply visit on your own if you have any interest in research or creative work in this area.
