EMPAC to Host a Free Dance-Theatre Event by Greek artist Dimitris Papaioannou Dec. 8 [Berkshire on Stage]

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Troy, NY — The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute announces “Primal Matter,” a free dance-theater performance by Greek artist Dimitris Papaioannou. The event will take place in Studio 2 on Saturday, December 8 at 8 PM. (Ed. Note: This performance includes male nudity, as captured in the performance video above.)
