The Cashore Marionettes

Arts (Fine, Performing and Visual)

10/26/2014 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Jones Theatre at Daggy Hall

Unmatched in artistry, grace, and refinement of movement, the acclaimed Cashore Marionettes redefine the art of puppetry. In "Life in Motion," they perform a series of vignettes taken from everyday life and set to beautiful music by the likes of Beethoven, Vivaldi, Strauss, and Copland. Through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, humor, pathos, classic music, and poetic insight, the Cashore Marionettes take the audience on a journey that celebrates the richness of life. "Simple but brilliant . . . highly recommended even for adults who don’t happen to have kids," says the Calgary Herald.

RESERVED SEATING: Adults $10, Seniors $8, All Students/Youth $5. Tickets in advance through TicketsWest. Presented with support from the Hilltop.

Saving Nature and Improving Agriculture: Where does Nature’s Wisdom Lie?

Environmental Studies

10/28/2014 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
WSU Pullman, CUB Jr. Ballroom

The symposium will begin with a presentation from Emma Marris, author of Rambunctious Garden: Saving Nature in a Post-Wild World. Her book highlights alternative conservation strategies that do not focus on holding or returning land to a historical baseline.

The symposium’s second speaker is R. Ford Denison, professor in Ecology and Evolution at the University of Minnesota, and author of Darwinian Agriculture: How Understanding Evolution Can Improve Agriculture. In this book, Denison presents a new approach to the challenge of producing more food while using land, water and other resources more efficiently and without sacrificing long-term sustainability.

Elle s'en va / On My Way
An outstanding performance by Catherine Deneuve, former beauty queen Bettie, now in her sixties, left alone to deal with the financial problems facing her family's restaurant. What begins as a quick drive to clear her head turns into a full-fledged road trip, and along the way there are chance meetings, an ex-Miss France gala, renewed ties with her estranged daughter and grandson, and possibly, at the end of the road, love...
In French with English subtitles. Festival passes for all four shows are just $15 and are available at the Kenworthy Theater, BookPeople of Moscow, or at the door. Individual films are $4 at the door. Admission is free for WSU and UI students with ID.
