About the Artists:

Kei Ito is a visual artist working primarily with experimental photography and installation art who is currently teaching at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in NYC. Ito received his MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2016. Ito’s work addresses issues of deep intergenerational loss and connections as he explores the materiality and experimental processes of photography, visualizing the invisible: radiation, memory and life/death.

Ito’s work, fundamentally rooted in the trauma and legacy passed down from his late grandfather – a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, meditates on the complexity of his identity and heritage through examining the past and current threats of nuclear disaster and his present status as an US-immigrant. Many of Ito’s artworks transformed both art and non-art spaces into temporal monuments that became platforms for the audience to explore social issues and the memorials dedicated to the losses suffered from the consequences of those issues.

Ito has participated in numerous Artist in Residence programs offered by the Studio at MASS MoCA, the Marva and John Warnock Biennial A-I-R, CPW, the Center for Fine Art Photography, and Creative Alliance. His works are included in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Norton Museum of Art, Candela Collection, the Marva & John Warnock A-I-R Committee, En Foco, and California Institute of Integral Studies. His internationally recognized solo and group shows can be read in reviews and articles published by Washington Post, Hyperallergic, BmoreArt, ArtMaze Magazine, Washington City Paper and BBC Culture/Art.

Andrew Paul Keiper is an artist and educator based in Baltimore, Maryland where he teaches at the Maryland Institute College of Art in the Animation and Film & Video programs. Working in sound, image and installation, Andrew’s work dances across the boundaries of sound art, experimental music and sound design.

Field recordings, drones, drumming and sound designed evocations of places remote in time and place commingle in Keiper’s work, inviting the audience to listen in ways they may not be accustomed to listening. Much of Andrew’s work contemplates the legacy of his grandfather’s role in the creation of the atomic bomb, and the ramifications of atomic weaponry past and present. Andrew also maintains a practice as a sound designer for film, and as a musician and audio engineer.

Keiper received his BFA in painting from the Mason Gross School of the Arts in 2002. He has exhibited in nationally, including in Baltimore, New York City, Philadelphia, New Jersey and Washington DC. In 2016 and 2019 he was a Sondheim Prize semi-finalist, and in 2016 won a Rubys Artist Grant along with collaborator Kei Ito to produce a large scale project.

In January of 2018 Keiper and Ito presented their Rubys project, Afterimage Requiem at the Baltimore War Memorial. The exhibition received coverage by the Washington Post Magazine, the BBC, the Baltimore Sun and others. In 2016, they brought this work, along with others to the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where they exhibited their first large-scale art museum exhibition, Archives Aflame.

The Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) Planning Committee warmly invites you to a discussion about the future of NAIS at FSU, February 25, 11:00AM-12:00PM. Focused on what a NAIS Center would look like, what it would cover, and what you consider essential to such a center’s mission, the meeting provides an opportunity for students, staff, faculty, and the wider community to share their thoughts on these important topics. This is a virtual meeting.

If you have any questions, please contact Robinson A. Herrera, Chair, NAIS Planning Committee at rherrera@fsu.edu

Adapted from a 1992 film of the same name, Newsies is a bustling, energetic retelling of New York City’s 1899 News Boys Strike. With music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman, and book by Harvey Fierstein, Newsies has captured the hearts and minds of audiences.

How does a creative team translate a movie into a musical? What elements of history remain, and how might you learn more? And how does the David-vs-Goliath style labor uprising and the power of collective action highlighted in the show run up against the twenty-first century neoliberal mindset?

Climb aboard the Number 5 bus with young CJ and his force-of-nature Nana as they travel through Nana’s urban Chicago neighborhood in this hip-hoppin’ musical joy ride based off the children’s book of the same name.

When his parents leave him with his Nana for a four day visit, CJ is challenged with new experiences unlike those at home. Meeting unlikely friends and seeing the world through a different lens, CJ learns about the boisterous world that exists outside his bubble.

Based on the book by Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson, West’s adaptation pulls the hoppin’ music of Lamont Dozier and Paris Dozier into a moving musical.

A young man travels back home after the sudden death of his mother, to find how the stories we learn as children shape us as adults in this magical journey through space and time.

After the sudden death of his mother Esther, Spencer reexamines his memories of her and the stories she shared about his mysterious father. Through flashbacks to childhood and scenes from the journey to Esther’s funeral, Spencer’s own identity as well as his father’s come into focus as a beautiful young woman named Petrushka enters his orbit.

Playwright James Iljames’ soulful journey has been one of the most-performed new plays of this year to rave reviews.

Music by Alan Menken | Lyrics by Jack Feldman | Book by Harvey Fierstein
Based on the Disney Film written by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White
Originally produced on Broadway by Disney Theatrical Productions

FALLON THEATRE

Cheer on a band of orphan newsboys challenging their personal Goliath within a corrupt establishment in this high-energy musical inspired by true events. 

19th century New York newsboys form a rag-tag brotherhood that challenges a corporate Goliath to treat his workers fairly. As intrepid girl reporter Katherine captures their exploits in ink—and catches the eye of strike leader Jack Kelly— the world learns the power of “one for all, and all for one”.

Adapted from the 1992 film of the same name, the soaring anthems by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman with a street smart book by Harvey Fierstein make Newsies an inspiring return to the theatre.
