Making Merry

Submitted by Skyler Inman on Tue, 12/06/2016 - 12:55pm

At this compelling performance, three local actors bring to life holiday stories involving love, loss, family unity (or disunity), and politics. Josh Robinson acts out Truman Capote's "One Christmas," about a family struggling with addiction, while GerRee Hinshaw gives voice to "Oil and Water" by Dani Shapiro, a personal tale about relearning how to celebrate the holidays after a period of mourning. Erin Rollman rounds out the evening with a performance of Anne Roiphe's "The Demon Foiled," the story of a modern Jewish family celebrating Hannukah despite being embroiled in local politics.

The Fellowship String Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Colorado at Boulder joins this gallery performance series honoring Clyfford Still’s lifelong appreciation for many genres of music. Violinists Joshua Ulrich and Andrew Giordano, violist Andrew Krimm, and cellist Zachary Reaves came together in 2011 at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, to perform some of the most respected string quartets and pedagogues in classical music. They have since become one of the most exciting young ensembles in the country. Sun 2-3 p.m.
