Of This Place is a community-based project that surfaces and celebrates stories of Waterville, Maine, and Colby College and sheds light on those people and places - past and present - who have shaped our communities in powerful ways. It weaves together dance, music, text, projection, and participatory community workshops to create an evening-length performance that will help celebrate the opening of the Gordon Center for the Performing Arts and catalyze continued collaborative activities.

Directed by Matthew Cumbie from Performance, Theater, and Dance in collaboration with José Martínez in Music and a team of professional artists, students, organizers, and community members.

Presented by the Departments of Performance, Theater, and Dance and Music with support from the Arts Office, Center for the Arts and Humanities, Cultural Events Committee, Office of Civic Engagement, and Special Collections and the Archives in the Colby Libraries.

Admission is free, but reservations are recommended.
