Nov. 20 – 22, 2008, at 8PM - Robbia Hendrix, a student member of the ANS Center, will be performing in "The Pursuit of Harmony". Robbia is in the Barretts Honors College and double majoring in Biology and Dance. The performance is directed/choreographed by Jodi James, one of ASU Dance Department's MFA candidates, as her thesis project. The performance strives to understand what harmony means to us as individuals-if it means anything at all, and how we experience it in our lives-both dramatic and subtle. The show is located outside, in Galvin Plaza, directly east of the ASU Art Museum and right next to the Fine Arts Center and Music buildings.
