On Wednesday, April 22, 2009, our MFA candidates shared a night of integrative performances involving dance, song, stories, monologue, and poetry in Katzen's room 152. The event was meant to communicate to our students and to the community that the work of fiction writers and poets has its place among other forms of art that engage the whole body. "Not Just the Same Old Song and Dance" was an experiment so successful, we are already gearing up for next year's show.
