Titan Arum Rises Again... Perry the Corpse Flower is growing again, this time to produce a titanic leaf. It will be one of the largest leaves ever produced in this state. For further details, see the blog and webcam links at Also feel free to stop by the greenhouse to view the leaf's progress. A smaller Titan Arum, "Bob" (named after Brian O'Brien—B O'B, get it?), is going to flower very soon at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como Park in St. Paul.

Spring Dance Concert This Weekend... The Department of Theater and Dance announces the spring performance of the Gustavus Dance Company (GDC). The dance concert, titled "Old/New, Fast/Slow, Movement/Stillness," is a dynamic compilation of works choreographed and performed by Gustavus dance faculty and students as well as several prominent guest artists. Performances will be held in the Anderson Theater, Friday and Saturday, April 11 and 12, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 13, at 2 p.m.
     The concert opens with Moonlight, a quartet originally choreographed by internationally acclaimed artists Joanie Smith and Danial Shapiro, who together formed Shapiro and Smith Dance; Laura Selle Virtucio, a longtime company member of Shapiro and Smith Dance who has taught at Gustavus for the past two years, has restaged the piece. Past Lost/Past Found is a solo choreographed by Gustavus faculty artist Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner for Melissa Rolnick, who recently joined the faculty. It is followed by Kaleidoscopic Splendor, a sampling of Rolnick's own choreography originally commissioned by Glendale Community College in Glendale, Ariz., but now reconfigured to include creative input from Gustavus students. Wee Violence, originally choreographed by Shapiro and Smith, has been restaged by Smith and Laura Selle Virtucio as a solo for senior Britta Peterson; it is performed to spoken text accompaniment. Closing the first half of the concert is the premiere of Gutierrez-Garner's Shiny Things for the Mind.
     Opening the second half is the colorful and provocative dear diary..., choreographed by students Britta Peterson and Emily Bulling and originally presented in the Dance Gallery last November. Tongue N Chair: 2 is a duet set by Melissa Rolnick and performed by seniors Noemi Lopez and Britta Peterson. Shifting to a completely different genre, Christian DeMarais, a first-year student at Gustavus and a member of the Keane Sense of Rhythm Professional Tap Company, will perform his tap solo Gotta Get Through This. Closing this year's concert is Vigorous Incubation, choreographed by Gutierrez-Garner, which recently received top honors at the North Central Regional American College Dance Festival Association Conference and an invitation to perform at the biennial American College Dance Festival in New York City. (In addition, all seven dancers in this piece were nominated as an ensemble for the prestigious ACDFA/Dance Magazine Award for Outstanding Student Performer.)
     Tickets for the concert are required, as all seating is reserved. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Gustavus students, faculty, and staff receive complimentary tickets. Tickets may be purchased through the Student Activities Office or by calling the Gustavus Ticket Center at 933-7590.

Math and the Arts, Part One... The first-ever Math/Computer Science Faculty Art Exhibit opens Monday, April 14, in the lobby of the third floor of Olin Hall.

This exhibition is an extraordinary example of just what happens when you have an artist share space with mathematicians, computer scientists, and statisticians. An opening reception will be held 4:30-6 p.m. on April 14. Work will be on display through April 30.

Lecture Addresses Sustainability and Americans' Lifestyles... Juliet Schor, noted author and professor of sociology at Boston College, will be at Gustavus on Thursday, April 17, to present an address titled "Getting to Sustainability: Changes in Everyday Life."

She is currently working on issues of environmental sustainability and their relation to Americans' lifestyles. Schor has served as a consultant to the United Nations, at the World Institute for Development Economics Research, and to the United Nations Development Program.
