9:00am POWER TO THE PRINTERS: The Alternative Press in Iowa City, 1965-1985

In today’s era of instant communication, it’s hard to imagine a time when people relied on printing presses, the US Postal Service, and newspapers hawked on street corners to distribute information and calls to action. Unlike 21st century organizers of political action, activists in the 1960s and ‘70s relied on technology such as mimeograph machines and press type. Their medium was the printed word.

Iowa City was a hotbed of protest—and a hotbed of printing. Radical groups and individuals wrote newsletters and manifestos, printed fliers to post around town, and published literary magazines. Many of their newspapers were circulated nationally, creating space for local activists to engage with national conversations challenging the status quo.

The publications in this exhibition document many strands of protest in Iowa City: the anti-war movement, Chicana and Chicano liberation, feminism, black power, gay and lesbian rights. Visitors will see just a sample of Iowa City’s activism, drawn from extensive collections in the University Archives and the Iowa Women’s Archives.

Location: Gallery University of Iowa Main Library

10:00am "Bodies in Motion"

Bodies in Motion compares the dance photography of Barbara Morgan to work produced by artists from the Renaissance to the present. Imagined as a complement to Dance Marathon, which takes place in the IMU February 3–4, 2017, the exhibition highlights Morgan’s ability to capture motion, the innovative choreography of Martha Graham, and the similar expressions of movement in pieces by artists such as Jackson Pollock, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, Gyorgy Kepes, and Nathan Lerner.

7:00pm The Cambrians Summer Intensive Showing

Presented by the Department of Dance and The Cambrians

The University of Iowa Department of Dance is excited to welcome The Cambrians to our campus, May 15-26, 2017. They will offer an opportunity for our students to participate in pre-professional training through a series of courses in ballet, modern, low flying technique, and improvisation. Their visit here will conclude with The Cambrians Summer Intensive Showing on Friday, May 26 at 7:00 p.m. in Space Place Theater. This showing will present excerpts of the students’ coursework from this two-week period and a final choreographic piece.

This performance will be approximately one hour and is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

About The Cambrians
The Cambrians is a global dance production network, based out of Chicago that treats their dance performers as the primary drivers of choreographic quality and innovation. As a network, they grow by building relationships between their dancers. At any given time, The Cambrians has a project running centered on two or three performers, usually living in different cities. In these projects, the dancers travel to several cities to make duets or trios with a dozen or more choreographers, chosen by the performers. The performers then take all the duets that have been made on them and remix them to create evening-length shows. These projects act as relationship building gauntlets, through which they performers grow uniquely adept at dancing together by seeing each other in numerous situations and through a wide array of dance forms. They learn together, teach others, sometimes get impatient with each other, and ultimately grow together into artistic friendships that they then present to their audiences to get to know. Their network is young but growing quickly.
