CANCELED: Performance for Young People: Children of Metropolis
April 15, 2020 | 10:00 am
Due to the closure of the UGA Performing Arts Center through May 10 and the cancellation of the group’s tour, this performance has been canceled and will not be rescheduled. Ticketholders should check their email or contact the box office for more information.
Set in an otherworldly, retro-futuristic land, Children of Metropolis is inspired by the ending of Fritz Lang’s iconic 1927 cult classic film, Metropolis. The ensemble features five musicians with the agility of gymnasts and an extraordinary percussive drive playing original music on instruments crafted from unusual recycled and salvaged materials. Created by composer and percussionist Gregory Kozak, this high-energy performance will excite the senses as you see and hear the transformation of scrap into art and art into music in a performance unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
Performances for Young People last approximately 60 minutes and are designed for children and youth grades 2-12 (age 6 and older). Admission is $2/person, including teachers and chaperones. Groups only. For information and reservations, please call the Box Office beginning July 22 at (706) 542-4400.
