The Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series connects the campus and its community to working professional artists, through a performance series presenting music, dance, and theater works throughout the academic year.
This year, amidst upheavals and a global pandemic, the Performing Arts Series is looking to artists to help us comprehend and respond to the moment we are in. Until it is safe to gather again, we are engaging artists throughout their process, through long-term residencies rather than short campus engagements with finished works.
Our first artist in this experimental format will be Nia Love. Love comes to campus for a fall residency in the Dance Program with major support from the 360° Course Clusters and will engage with this year’s Flexner Lecturer, Fred Moten. In February 2021, Love will share the results of her research with the campus and Performing Arts Series' audiences. Check back here and sign up for the Arts Newsletter for updates on this and future events.
