IC Theatre will share the story of Homer’s "The Odyssey" transported to the modern world in “Anon(ymous),” written by Naomi Iizuka.

In the spirit of spring, Ithaca College’s dance concert “Flight of the Heart” will bring forth a tangible touch of nature with the creation of an original costume. This costume entails a handcrafted tree attached to a specially designed dress that a dancer will wear in the performance of a modern dance piece. Choreographed by Department of Theatre Arts assistant professor Lindsay Gilmour, the dance piece, titled “Tiny Rebellions”, is an exploration of the tiny rebellions humans face, such as myth over logic, and femininity over masculinity, in an attempt to create balance instead of control.
