Tuesday, September 17 - Friday, July 25 All Day - Oviatt Library, Tseng Gallery
http://library.csun.edu/blogs/goingson/in-protest/

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.

We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm - Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/shanghai-ballet-la-sylphide/

One of the most famous propaganda ballets to have emerged from the Cultural Revolution, White-Haired Girl brought critical acclaim to the regional dance company in 1979. Since then, Shanghai Ballet has become one of the most pre-eminent international ballet companies in the world. Known for presenting ingenious interpretations of classical and contemporary repertoire, the ensemble under Xin Lili's artistic direction will enchant audiences with its exquisite performance of La Sylphide -- a romantic tale of a young man forever chasing an elusive, celestial being, only to encounter tragedy and heartache.

"The costumes were dazzling... Starting off in a low-key manner, the Shanghai Ballet ... built to a crescendo of rapidfire over-the-head lifts and tours en l'air at the sold-out ... Auditorium." 
-- Dottie Ashley, The Post and Courier
