On Stage at Joe’s presents
Cicada Saturday: Two events.

Cicadas! Wow What a Bug!

A Salute to the Cicada
A Variety Show, Adults Only!
Saturday May 22, 2021, at 7 pm

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium.

Cicadas! Wow What a Bug! Kay Taub is an entomologist, or “bug scientist.” She will share the unique biological story of the cicada. Storytelling, dance, and music will also be presented by local artists. If fate allows, a larger-than-life cicada might join in the fun!

A Salute to the Cicadas: A Variety Show to Revere and Razz Brood X is an evening dedicated to our prodigal neighbors who drop by for a visit every 17 years. Whether you believe as the ancient Greeks that these singing, reproductive-focused insects are gifts from the Muses or wish they’d go back into the holes they crawled out of, this event is for you! Joe’s has invited area performing artists both beloved and new to pay a tongue-in-cheek homage to one of the world’s oldest bugs. Recommended for ages 16+.

Masks are required for this in-person event.

Tickets $20 General Admission; $10 Seniors, Veterans, Under 16. Click here.

Vital Signs Spring 2021 Showcase at Clarice Smith, May 3, Online

Vital Signs Spring 2021 Showcase at Clarice Smith, May 3, Online

Vital Signs Spring 2021 Showcase
Monday, May 3, 2021 . 7PM EDT

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Online

In an effort to support student voice and action related to the Black Lives Matter movement, The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, the UMD Office of Diversity and Inclusion and UMD Office of Multicultural Involvement and Community Advocacy in partnership with Black Terps Matter announced Vital Signs: Creative Arts for Black Lives Mini-Grants. During the 20-21 academic year, grants have been awarded to artists in the UMD community who are creating projects that affirm Black life and vitality and interrogate white supremacy and anti-Blackness.

During this showcase, members of the Spring 2021 Vital Signs cohort will present excerpts of their projects in progress and discuss the intersection of their personal experiences with their art.

Anthony Aguilar ’21 • Art History and Archaeology: a digital reconstruction of the Black Lives Matter Memorial Fence in downtown Washington, D.C.

David Alade ’21 • Information Science: a mini-magazine of film photography that focuses on displaying the intimacy and beauty of Black hair

Lauren Floyd ’24 • Music Performance–Percussion: Shadows of Lakeland, a vignette-style piece that musically delves into the rich history of Lakeland, the historic African American community of College Park, Maryland

Aliyah Jackson ’21 • Theatre and Psychology: a short film about a Black woman who refutes the concept of being “a slave.” This film is being made to celebrate the prideful history of the Black American by capturing the strength, beauty, and regality of individuals of African descent.

Chisom Ojukwu ’21 • Public Health Science: a summer-long virtual art tutoring session for BIPOC youth. Her goal is to connect one-on-one with young students and inspire them to explore the concept of identity through the endless possibilities of the visual arts.
