GAC150 Blog: Event Update Posted on May 4th, 2012 by

Under the direction of internationally known and veteran director and choreographer Stephan Koplowitz, more than 150 Gustavus Adolphus College students and alumni will perform Our Place, In Place, a series of four site and theme-specific performances created in honor of the College’s Sesquicentennial. We wanted to share some photographs of the performance that took place on Wednesday May 2.

There will be one more day to see these performances, on Saturday May 5. Times and locations are:
