ArtCentral Spearfish and Black Hills State University (BHSU) present an original theatrical production, “Art of My Life:A Multimedia Celebration of Our Creative Souls.” Performances take place at both BHSU and The Matthews Opera House.

The shows at BHSU’s Woodburn (mainstage) Theater take place at 7:30 p.m., October 4-5. The shows at The Matthews Opera House Theater take place at 7:30 p.m., October 13 and at 2 p.m. on October 14.

Director Bert Juhrend, BHSU theater professor, and his selected cast of four to six BHSU students devised this original production with the shared theme through ArtCentral, “What would life be like if art was taken away?”

About the show

After a political and then geographical cataclysm, a small group of curious souls discovers artifacts of the late creative world before them. They find projections of forgotten energetic movements alongside melodies played by unfamiliar instruments, and colorful images of blossoming plants and landscapes that were once soft and green. These artistic memories with lost journal entries and disregarded interviews ignite the group’s interest and bolster their desperation to bring back art into the desolation that has now become Earth.
