UNCSA ASSOCIATES PRESENT A BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT “ARCH”:

ARTISTS REACHING CHILDREN IN THE HOSPITAL

 


WINSTON-SALEM – The Associates, the volunteer organization for the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA), will present a behind-the-scenes look at The ARCH Project at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, in Agnes de Mille Theatre on the campus at 1533 South Main Street.

ARCH, or Artists Reaching Children in the Hospital, takes the school’s high school Drama students to Brenner Children’s Hospital, where the students perform for and interact with children being treated there. UNCSA alumnus and Big Apple Circus performer Richard “Dikki” Ellis returns to campus several times each year to work with students and visit young hospital patients in this important community engagement program of UNCSA.

On Feb. 18, see how students learn to juggle and balance a spinning plate on a stick, along with other circus techniques that make The ARCH Project a long-running success story.

Immediately after the presentation, a dessert reception will follow in the flag gallery outside de Mille.

Admission is free and open to the public, but space is limited and reservations are requested. Please RSVP to uncsa.associates@gmail.com, or call 336-631-1227.
