Campus Artist and Lecture Series (CALS)

 

Thank you for your patronage over the years!  Our upcoming season is coming together quite nicely and I will keep you posted as more information is confirmed.  Ideally all will be finalized by mid-August. 

A big change for the upcoming year:  All SUNY Cortland students will be admitted free of charge!  They just need to show us their College ID.

CALS Presents:  The 2014 - 2015 Season


Mosaic Dance Theater Company

Founded in 2003, the Mosaic Dance Theater Company (MDTC) develops and presents original dance, theater, and educational programs celebrating the rich diversity of cultures and folkloric traditions of the Mediterranean, including the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey, Greece, Italy, and Spain.  The dances and music, the stories and myths, and the history and legends of this fascinating area form the wellspring of inspiration for MDTC's creative vision.

"Thematically rich with a luxury of bright colors, glinting ornaments and swirling diaphonous fabrics, these dancers conjured the world of the Arabian Nights."  -- Robert Johnson, The Star-Ledger
