December 2014 Spotlight: Luther College + LA Theatre Works

Luther College in Decorah, IA presented LA Theatre Works in October 2014. This Arts Midwest Touring Fund—supported engagement featured a public performance, a k-12 performance, and campus and community wide discussions surrounding the themes of the performance and how they play out in the community today. The Center Stage series at Luther College aims to present quality performing artists to both the campus and the community as a whole. Every season, they work to celebrate the things that bring people together, as well as the things that make them unique. Their mission is to put the audience “in the center of it all” in the same way that Center Stage is “surrounded by and participating in artistic inspiration, intellectual discovery, and social awakening.” The presentation of the LA Theatre Works’ In the Heat of the Night performance came at an important time for campus and community wide discussions surrounding race, privilege, and civility on and off campus.
