Waldrep will present feast gently, a reading as part of Open Space's Open Word: Readings and Ideas literary series on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. Trained as a singer, Waldrep’s work embraces the musicality of language—asking readers to tune their ears to hearing words on a page.

Presented by Open Space for one-night only, The Line is a contemporary dance work where the physical movement, live music, and visuals are completely integrated. It will be performed on Saturday, October 28 at 8:00 p.m.
The Line by choreographer Lori Hamar uses a clothesline to physically depict commonality among people and the individual struggle toward developing a sense of others. Dancers Francesca Frewer and Stacey Horton move from confronting the line to being suspended in clothing hanging on the line.
