07:30PM 07:30PM Spring Play: Ada and the Engine: School: Oxford College Department / Organization: Oxford College Building/Room: Tarbutton Performing Arts Center Cost: $5/person Contact Name: Danielle Dockery Contact Email: danielle.dockery@emory.edu Oxford College will present the play "Ada and the Engine" by Lauren Gunderson. Ada Byron is a curious young woman and mathematician who is being pushed for a prestigious marriage by her mother, who is hoping to repair their damaged reputation set by the late Lord Byron, Ada’s father. However, when Ada meets Charles Babbage, her interest is spiked. He seems like her perfect match – he’s a scholar and a dreamer, but their age difference prevents their friendship from becoming anything more. Despite Ada’s marriage to Lord Lovelace, Babbage’s model of the Analytical Engine creates a long-lasting partnership between the two scientists that causes their deplored love for each other to be kept aflame. The cast and technical crew, composed entirely of students, is directed by Nick Fesette. Jessie Rivers coordinates the sets, lighting, and sound. Tickets are $5 per person. Reserve your tickets at oxford.emory.edu/oxboxoffice. This play is presented as part of a special exhibition "Reviving Ada." Presented in conjunction with the Atlanta Science Festival, this interactive gallery features multi-media displays curated by Oxford students celebrating female contributions to math and science. The gallery will be Feb. 28-March 23 in Tarbutton Lobby. This is an Oxford Studies event. + Oxford College Campus Events

07:30PM 07:30PM Dance Independent Research Showing: University Event Topic: Academics,Arts,Athletics,Entertainment Department / Organization: Arts at Emory,Center for Creativity & Arts,Emory Dance Program Cost: Free Contact Name: Anne Walker Contact Email: awalker@emory.edu Emory dance students present four independent research projects--three oral presentations followed by a dance piece choreographed by Patsy Collins. These informal presentations will invite the audience’s feedback and questions. As opposed to dance and other familiar art forms, yoga is centered around a lifestyle rather than a performance. Jhaunae Cephas, a senior in the college studying political science and dance, and Carly Wynans, a sophomore studying dance and neuroscience/behavioral biology, explore the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga to understand the changes that yoga elicits both during dance and in pedestrian life. Laura Briggs, a senior studying dance and chemistry, investigates the role of butch, classism, and sexual assault and the dehumanizing of women in Kenneth MacMillan's 20th century seminal ballet, Manon. Laura questions the continued performance of MacMillan's works in the Me Too era. Abi Grassler, who studies neuroscience/behavioral biology and dance, will present her findings from analyzing a choreographic work to determine whether certain emotions can be identified based on the region of the body where initiation occurs, or where emphasis is placed, as well as whether there is a perceptual difference in the understanding of embodied anatomy in dancers and non-dancers. The evening closes with a performance choreographed by Patsy Collins, a senior studying business and dance. In collaboration with her cast, Patsy explores empathy and community as they relate to current social constructs. The work investigates a shift from an "ego-system to an eco-system," and the social divides that face our nation. + Dance Studio, Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, 1700 N Decatur Rd., Atlanta, GA 30322 Campus Events
