Student Scholarship Recognition Day
All Day

Student Scholarship Recognition Day (SSRD) is held each spring to celebrate the exemplary scholarship and creativity of Willamette University students. It is a day for students to share the fruits of their research, to present musical, theatrical, and dance performances, and to display works of art to fellow students, faculty, family, and friends. Regular classes are not held on SSRD as a way of honoring the extraordinary accomplishments of our students and demonstrating Willamette University’s institutional commitment to student scholarship. The students whose work is presented at SSRD have been supported in various ways. Some have worked directly with members of the faculty as research assistants or on student-faculty collaborative projects. Others have designed and conducted their own research, often during summer break or throughout their senior year for a senior thesis or capstone research project. Still others have created original works in fine and performing arts. Applications are currently being accepted and will be through February 26, 2014.

The Trojan Women "Pre-Talk"
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Join Associate Professor of Classics Ortwin Knorr for a lively discussion about The Trojan Women immediately prior to that evening's performance. 

Ancient Greek tragedy was a much more exotic art form than most people who ever watched a Greek play performed on a modern stage realize. By introducing you to ancient Greek performance practices, the contemporary political background, and the modern scholarly debates surrounding Euripides' The Trojan Women, this pre-show presentation will sharpen your senses for the continued relevance of the questions this play first posed to an Athenian audience in 415 BCE.

Event Image The Trojan Women
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

In the aftermath of the Trojan War, the women of the ruined nation of Troy, gathered by their conquerors, await their fate even as they mourn their dead.  This play, written in 415 BCE as Euripides’ public protest against the Peloponnesian War, forces us to look beyond social justice, beyond nationalism and patriotism to consider at core what we believe to be right, and what we know is wrong.  This aggressive, hard-hitting, movement-based production will force us to scrape away the grit, to wipe the dirt from our eyes as we look beyond despair to find our humanity.

Beginners are most welcome!
The Trojan Women "Pre-Talk"
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Join Associate Professor of Classics Mary Bachvarova for a lively discussion about The Trojan Women immediately prior to that evening's performance. 

Euripides' The Trojan Women presents the voices of female victims singing passionate laments to protest their wartime suffering. Several of these features require deeper explanation for modern audiences to understand the implications of the tragic performance of the Trojan women's lament for Euripides' original audience. Professor Bachvarova will first discuss the democratic context of the rise of tragedy, presenting the argument that in tragedy, male citizens co-opted the female art of lament, silencing their dangerously divisive voices on the streets of Athens while making use of the power structures and behavior of the males who controlled them. Hecuba and the other Trojan women are doubly "other", female and foreign, the mythical enemies of the Greeks, and witnessing their outsider voices allowed Athenian citizens to participate safely in a protest of the cruel Athenian military policies during the Peloponnesian War. 
Event Image The Trojan Women
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

In the aftermath of the Trojan War, the women of the ruined nation of Troy, gathered by their conquerors, await their fate even as they mourn their dead.  This play, written in 415 BCE as Euripides’ public protest against the Peloponnesian War, forces us to look beyond social justice, beyond nationalism and patriotism to consider at core what we believe to be right, and what we know is wrong.  This aggressive, hard-hitting, movement-based production will force us to scrape away the grit, to wipe the dirt from our eyes as we look beyond despair to find our humanity.

"Neon Mirror Festival", an electronic dance opera
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

SALEM, Ore.— On Tuesday, April 29, 8:00 p.m., the Willamette University music department will present Neon Mirror Festival,  an electronic dance opera by music composition major Derek Sup in fulfillment of his senior project.  The event will take place in the Hudson Concert Hall, Rogers Music Center and is free and open to the public.

The Synopsis: Abra, a sheltered girl who's thoughts are constantly consumed by her Demons, attends her first Electronic Dance Music Festival–the Neon Mirror Festival.  She takes hallucinogenic drugs in hopes to quell the demons' voices inside of her head, but the effect is the opposite, spiraling her into psychological turmoil.

Abra's Demons exist only in Abra's thoughts, so that only she can hear them.  The quartet of Demons constantly reminds Abra that she is not good enough, not cool enough, will never amount to anything, and has no friends.  They fill her mind with a constant flood of self-deprecating thoughts.

The Festival Attendees are the EDM society, addicted to the rush of life in sex and drugs.  Their only priority is to stay as "turnt" on life as possible, and whatever action they take must contribute to maintaining a life of constant ecstasy.

The Festival Ringmasters/Drug Vendors sell drugs, 'Research Chemicals' to the attendees as they enter the festival for great sums of money.

Abra is played by Grace Katzmar (ballerina, soprano); Abra's Demons are played by Rick Jones, Connor Soejoto, Alec Chase, and Nick Newman; The Festival Attendees are played by Tandem;

Festival Performers are played by the Waller String Trio (Chloe Prendergast, Jason Pegis, Sherry Liang), and Derek Sup; and the Festival Ringmasters/Drug Vendors are played by Wade Pritchard and Molly Pritchard.

For further information contact the Willamette University Music Department at 503-370-6255.
