Outdoor Campus

Influenced by life during the pandemic, Ohio Wesleyan University’s student dance company, Orchesis, will be Dancing Around the Issue (and across the OWU campus) during its annual contemporary dance concert.

Open only to current OWU students and employees, the dances will be performed live on campus on Oct. 29 and 30. Act I will begin at 4 p.m. and Act II at 7 p.m., using the darkness to create a “Drive-in Screendance.”

For Act I, attendees should gather at the top of the stairs leading from South Sandusky Street to Slocum Hall. For Act II, attendees should gather in their vehicles in the parking lot between Chappelear Drama Center and Beeghly Library or sit on the lawn next to the parking lot. In all instances, campus audience members will need to wear facial coverings and maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from others.

For the general public, Ohio Wesleyan will debut the two-act “Orchesis 20/21” via Zoom at 8 p.m. Oct. 29. Click here to register for access to the online event.
