ARC: An Evening for the Arts & Garden Cocktail Party

By UPenn GAPSA GAP (other events)

Saturday, September 22 2018 6:00 PM 10:00 PM

Regular ARC

A story...

A visually immersive opera recital...

An evening for the arts

FEATURING Erin Alcorn-soprano, Mike McGuirk-filmmaker, Ting Ting Wong-piano.

Erin, Mike, and Ting Ting will explore live music performance through a collaboration of opera and cinema. They will tell a love story using the simplest tools - oral tradition and stock footage, juxtaposing the conventions of what is popular with raw human emotion. In a world of commercialized romance, virtual living, and monetized escapism, Arc explores truth and our understanding of what is real.




DRESS: Cocktail Attire. Ladies, please note that there are many stairs and the venue suggests wearing shoes that you are able to stand in for several hours.

DINNER: Roasted pork, chicken, potatoes, salad, and grilled vegetables.

General Admission: ground floor access, beverages, and dinner.

VIP Admission: In addition to the general admission ticket benefts, VIP ticket holders will have access to the third floor roof deck, additional beverage options, additional food, and couch seating for the performances.
