*CONVO: Alonzo King LINES Ballet
Norton Center for the Arts – Newlin Hall, Danville KY

 
San Francisco’s Alonzo King LINES Ballet leaps to uncharted heights with bold new dance innovations that break the mold of what ballet can be. LINES Ballet thrives on collaboration, pairing music from all over the globe with King’s extraordinary dancers. King’s choreography digs into the mysteries of movement and brings honesty and urgent spirituality to the stage. Known for his collaborations with noted composers, musicians, and visual artists from around the world, King’s latest creation Biophany is inspired by animal “soundscapes” from famed bio-acoustician Bernie Krause, Ph.D. Alonzo King’s visionary choreography, brought to life by the extraordinary LINES Ballet dancers, is renowned for connecting audiences to a profound sense of shared humanity.

Into the Woods
Mind the wolf, heed the witch, and honor the giant in the sky at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and what really happens after they come true. Venture back Into the Woods as the creators of Jersey Boys and Matilda, the Musical team up with Networks (creators of Phantom of the Opera, War Horse, South Pacific) to present the acclaimed Fiasco Theater production that became New York’s surprise hit of this season. This Tony® Award-winning musical classic by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a witty and wildly theatrical reinvention. Including dazzling songs like “Children Will Listen” and “No One Is Alone,” this thrillingly clever new version made Ben Brantley of The New York Times fall “head over heels.”

CONVO: Healthcare — Medical & Legal Challenges
CONVO: Healthcare — Medical & Legal Challenges
Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

 
American Healthcare: Medical and Legal Challenges Moving Forward
The American healthcare system is an especially pertinent subject in the U.S. at present. The controversial Affordable Care Act, known commonly as ObamaCare, will see healthcare premiums increase as much as 40% in 2017. However, this prediction may be challenged by the outcomes of the recent elections in the House, Senate, and Presidency. The Centre College Law and Pre-Med Societies are happy to present two experts to discuss the intricacies and challenges. Dr. Anthony Weaver, of University of Kentucky’s Rural Health Program, will apply his experiences as a physician and how his profession will change with developing healthcare systems. Ann Feldkamp Triebsch, in House Council at Humana and Centre alumna, will discuss her experiences in the broader shifting landscape of the healthcare program and how American healthcare itself is likely to change over the course of the future. A Q&A session will follow both testimonies when the audience may ask questions of these experts.
