Art speaks to people - their hopes, fears, feelings, motivations - in ways that other forms of communication do not. Art often holds a power for us such that it allows us to recast beliefs and conceptions in new ways. What is it that creates this powerful nexus between art and understanding, compassion, peace, and reconciliation?
Featuring a performance by Bellingham Repertory Dance.
Monica Campbell is currently an Assistant Professor in Utah Valley University’s (UVU) department of dance, as well as the Modern Dance Program Coordinator. She danced nationally and internationally with Diavolo – Architecture in Motion from 1999-2006. Campbell has shown her choreography both nationally and internationally. Most recently, she completed a sold out run in Salt Lake City of her evening length piece The Final Hours, which investigates ideas of occupation, revolution, community, and the individual intensity and commitment necessary to forge cultural change, set amidst the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Her current adventure has been to expand her research from the stage to the classroom by co-creating and teaching a new class at UVU entitled Peacebuilding Through the Arts, with Dr. Michael Minch, Chair of the Peace and Justice Studies Program.
