‘The Aluminum Show’ will visit Southeast’s River Campus for a performance April 18.


April 4, 2011 – “The Aluminum Show” will present a visual extravaganza when it is performed at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus April 18.  The production will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall located in the Cultural Arts Center.

The Aluminum Show is a new performance combining movement, dance and visual theater unique to the stage. Through the use of special effects, creative mechanisms and acrobatic dance, inanimate objects come to life with energy, emotion and even personality, as silver industrial materials create a luminous and reflective world.

“We are proud to bring this outstanding, world-renowned company to the people of Cape Girardeau,” said Bob Cerchio, assistant director at the River Campus.

The France’s La Tribune describes the show as “dancing without being dancing, misappropriation of objects, puppets, frenzy, joy, humor, poetry, fantasy, illusion, a modern enchantment in between industrial matter and human bodies.”

Tickets may be purchased at the River Campus Box Office, located in the Cultural Arts Center, 518 S. Fountain St., weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by calling (573) 651-2265. Tickets also may be purchased at any MetroTix outlet, online at MetroTix.com, keyword “Aluminum,” or by calling toll-free: (800) 293-5949.
