EMPAC Presents Sean Griffin:
Cold Spring
Dec. 3 & 4

A diversity of musicians, actors, and dancers from all over the United States and Canada turn the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) theater into a high-energy collision of conflicting musical, textual, and theatrical sources and their underlying ideologies in Cold Spring, created in residence at EMPAC by Los Angeles-based composer Sean Griffin. Animating this collision are archaic philosophies and styles with cultural by-products from these sources evoking the atmosphere through a variety of appropriated, destroyed, and re-imagined materials.

The shows will feature performances by actors familiar to Capital Region theater-goers, including members of the Johnstown Little Theatre, Schenectady Civic Players, Curtain Call Theatre, and Class Act Productions.

The performances are Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3 and 4, beginning at 8 p.m. in the EMPAC theater. Tickets are $15/$10/$5. For more about the show, and to reserve tickets, go to http://empac.rpi.edu/events/2010/fall/griffin/.
