ARS NOVA + LIGHTNING ROD SPECIAL: UNDERGROUND RAILROAD GAME
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
Created by Jennifer Kidwell & Scott R. Sheppard, Directed by Taibi Mager Named one of the top ten theatre experiences of 2016 by the New York Times, Underground Railroad Game is a vivid, piercing piece of experimental performance from Philadelphia-based company Lightning Rod Special. Over its rapid-fire 75 minutes, the piece toes the line between sketch comedy show and excruciating American history lesson, set in a middle school classroom. Lightning Rod Special’s raucous performance earned them the 2017 Obie Award for Best New American Theatre Work, one of the highest honors in the field. By tearing down barriers of political correctness and challenging the contemporary liberal interracial dialogue, Underground Railroadexcavates hidden—and often ugly—truths about race, identity, and historical memory. 62 Center

TARTUFFE
Williamstown, 7:30 p.m.
Come see a play about a family Who argued back and forth like you and me They had a guest who they could not abide Who tried seducing mom and stole and lied He stopped all their fun and told them not to rest He simply would not leave, this pesky guest. Papa was taken in—as Papas always are— Not so the kids, although their Grandmama Had been transfixed by Tartuffe’s lying ways And left and said she’d not return for days. They had a pretty smart and wily maid Who plotted to expose the cowardly…dade That didn’t rhyme I know, but I don’t care— Come see the show, it’s written by Molière!  62 Center

DANCE SYMPOSIUM
Williamstown
Williams College Dance Department will host a symposium that approaches dance and performance as an interdisciplinary method, site of inquiry, and medium of learning. We will bring together scholars and practitioners who use a movement-based practice from Williams College and beyond to examine how embodied practices can provide insightful perspectives into issues relevant to the humanities and sciences. In framing dance/performance” broadly as both staged and everyday acts of representation, the engagement with disciplines as diverse as sports, martial arts, theatre, music, sciences, arts, and anthropology offer a lens for contextual analysis and techniques of bodily practice. It will also highlight the various ways that “dance/performance” can enable collaborations that may be thought of as non-traditional or non-normative. Keynote speaker Janet O’Shea is Professor of Dance Studies in the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance at UCLA. She is the author At Home in the World: Bharata Natyam on the Global Stage and co-editor of the Routledge Dance Studies Reader (second edition). Her current research is about Filipino martial arts and cognitive benefits of embodied training. Dr. O’Shea is completing an ethnographic memoir entitled Risk, Failure, Play: What Martial Arts Training Reveals about Proficiency, Competition, and Cooperation. 62 Center

SANKOFA SPRING PERFORMANCE
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
The foundations of contemporary stepping emerged in the United States during the 1900s as an aspect of performed self and group affirmation for African-American Greek letter sororities and fraternities. At Williams, this history began in 1996 when five students introduced the tradition to friends. As a result, interest in the power of bodies moving in unison to create sound and motion grew. They named themselves Sankofa, a word and concept from the Akan people of Ghana that can be translated as “reach back and get it.” Sankofa acknowledges its roots and uses Hip-Hop, spoken word and media to keep stepping contemporary.
