Penn State’s Center for the Performing Arts, faculty and students in two Penn State colleges and Los Angeles dance theater Diavolo have been collaborating for 18 months on a Creative Campus Innovations Grant Program called The Secret Life of Public Spaces. The culminating events of the project take place April 10 to 20, and the public is invited to experience each of the mostly free offerings.
The festival of creativity includes participants from Penn State’s Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Dance, and Engineering programs. Diavolo’s April 19 performance at Eisenhower Auditorium features the world premiere of Transit Space, a work inspired by extreme skateboarding culture that was commissioned by the Center for the Performing Arts.
All events, except for the April 10 film and the April 19 Diavolo performance, are free. Each, except for the April 10 film, takes place on the University Park campus. All are open to the public.
