Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company
In September, Mary B. Martin School of the Arts presented the feature documentary “Paul Taylor Creative Domain,” which followed the life and work of the world-renowned dance choreographer, and now, they have brought a live show from the mind of that same man. One of the Paul Taylor American Modern Dance companies, Taylor 2, will bring the choreographer’s special combination of luck and miracle to campus on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the D.P. Culp University Center Auditorium. “Paul Taylor Dance Company is nationally and internationally known, and has a legacy that has helped to shape American modern dance as we know it,” says School of the Arts Director Anita DeAngelis. “This is a perfect fit for ETSU, and I am sure their visit will get the attention of the region’s dance community.”
Free Movie Friday: ‘Ghostbusters’
Buctainment will present yet another Free Movie Friday on Oct. 14, at 7 p.m. in the D.P. Culp Center Cave. The movie to be screened this week is the 2016 summer blockbuster “Ghostbusters.” Directed by Paul Feig, “Ghostbusters” works as a reboot to the 1984 film of the same name and stars Melissa McCarthy as paranormal researcher Dr. Abigail Yates, Kristen Wiig as physicist Dr. Erin Gilbert, Kate McKinnon as engineer Dr. Jillian Holtzmann and Leslie Jones as subway worker Patty Tolan.

“SHU-DE!” documentary film
Mary B. Martin School of the Arts will sponsor a screening of the documentary film “SHU-DE!”—the title of which is the Tuvan term for “let’s go”—on Monday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. in the D.P. Culp University Center Auditorium. Filmmaker Michael Faulkner will be in attendance to watch the film with students at ETSU and then participate in a Q&A session. The story of “SHU-DE!” follows the Baltimore beat boxer and vocal percussionist Shodekeh, who joins musical talents with the Alash Ensemble, a group known for their Tuvan throat singing. According to the film’s official website, “‘SHU-DE!'” is the story of what happened when these artists came together, utilizing their common instrument: the voice and body.”
Julie Fowlis: Music of the Scottish Isles
Julie Fowlis, a world-famous multi-award winning Gaelic singer, will perform at ETSU on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the D.P. Culp University Center Auditorium. According to the musician’s personal website, “Julie is a warm and engaging live performer who has graced stages around the globe, from village halls in the Highlands to theatres in Paris and Vienna, London and New York, to singing live at the opening ceremony of the Glasgow XX Commonwealth Games in 2014, to a TV audience of over 1 billion people.” Sponsored by Mary B. Martin School of the Arts, the event will cost an admission price of $5 for students with ID and $25 for general admission.
Free Movie Friday: ‘Suicide Squad’
