           Disappear Here

Two dance companies – Sweet Edge and Syzygy Butoh – crossed genres, blending video and movement in a production of "Disappear Here," which was inspired by the Colorado wilderness and performed Sept. 17-18 and Sept. 24-25 in the ATLAS Black Box.

       Stockhausen Festival John Peterson, a CU music master's student, talks about the myriad of pioneering electronic/theatrical compositional styles developed by Karlheinz Stockhausen during a four-day celebration of Steinhausen's life and work in the Imig Music Building and ATLAS Black Box in late September and early October. For a story about the event, see the Denver Post article.



October 2010

New exterior doors will help keep weather out of ATLAS lobby

Employees of Ken Caryl Glass of Denver (above) work on the installation of new exterior doors that create a sealed atrium just outside the ATLAS lobby. The new doors will help keep the weather from entering the lobby, and the enclosed atrium area also will help keep moisture, snow and mud from coming into the lobby area. The doors took four months to custom produce to fit within the existing, open exterior space. Installation began in early October.
