SMTD@UMMA Performance: Scars

There will be two seatings for this performance at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Seating is limited to a maximum of 40 people and will be first come, first served. 

SMTD theater students, led by Professor Tzveta Kassabova, present a work of physical theater in response to conflicting states of beauty, violence, horror, and serenity found in the photographs on view in the UMMA exhibition Aftermath: Landscapes of Devastation. Audiences view the performance from the Photography Gallery, surrounded by the exhibition.

The SMTD@UMMA performance series is generously supported by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund and the Greg Hodes and Heidi Hertel Hodes—Partners in the Arts Endowment Fund.


Lead support for Aftermath: Landscapes of Devastation is provided by the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment. Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability and Department of Screen Arts and Cultures.
