2017-18 FINE ARTS SERIES I am passionate about creating distinctive performing arts experiences for you. Two high school humanities teachers inspired my love for the arts. Through their invitation, I saw my first professional live orchestra, dance, theatre, and comedy. To this day, I remember how I felt during those experiences. My world opened and the joy of performing arts became a dear friend for life. An audience will always share something special during a live performance—the startle of surprise, the gasp from a daring leap, the awe of the encore. The CSB/SJU Fine Arts Series brings these shared experiences with the artistic distinction of a national stage right to your backyard. The artists are exceptional—and we’ve expanded the invitation. We have experiences for the whole family together, matinees to enjoy, and a performance that is sensory friendly. We invite you to embrace extra connections—invite your book group to

BENEDICTINES AND BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH BOOKS Dr. Matthew Z. Heintzelman, Curator for the Austria/Germany Study Center; Curator for Rare Books and Manuscript Ever since Benedict first gave his Rule to his sixth-century monastic community, the Benedictines have been associated with books through reading, copying, collecting, and disseminating. This session will provide an opportunity to experience a selection of these books, dating from the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period. Along the way, we will consider ways in which books bring together and reinforce community, while also prompting us to look at our world in new ways.

PEOPLE ARE TALKING Brinas’s men execute the pivots and footwork with exquisite — and mystifying — clarity. In theory, their feet should be a blur, but each moment is articulated. –The Boston Globe

THE LEGENDARY AGILITY, STRENGTH AND DEXTERITY of the gauchos (cowboys) of Argentina fueled the creation of malambo. What was once a fast-paced competition of precision footwork has grown into one of the world’s most visually stunning dance forms. It’s filled with power, passion and energy. Since 2007, it has been a growing global sensation thanks to the touring of Che Malambo – an all-male dance company created by noted French choreographer Gilles Brinas. Che Malambo will deliver a thrilling blend of masterful footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song.
