The Drama Theatre in the Center for the Arts was the site of Monday's world premier reception for the U.S. entry at the Prague Quadrennial, the global showcase for the best in performance design, scenography and theater architecture.
Reception-goers gather on the stage in the Drama Theatre. The reception was part of the Upstate New York Regional USITT (United States Institute for Theatre Technology) Frank Willard Winter Session Meeting and Jobs Fair.
Jonathan Shimon, assistant professor of theatre and dance, speaks at the reception. Shimon is leading the team of UB faculty, staff and students who fabricated and built two cutting-edge multimedia exhibits for the PQ.
