Colby on Tour
We Don't Have an Algorithm for This
Friday, January 29-Saturday, January 30 at 8pm

Sponsored by The Center for the Arts and Humanities at Colby College and The Department of Theater and Dance.

We Don't Have an Algorithm for This is an original dance theater work directed by Annie Kloppenberg, Assistant Professor of Theater and Dance at Colby College, featuring Colby students. Created collaboratively in response to this year's annual campus-wide Humanities theme: Human/Nature, the work explores ideas from multiple disciplines that have encourages us to reflect upon nature, the built environment, and the ways in which our relationship to the natural world has shaped human existence. By embodying and transforming content from a series of lectures, this work encourages us to look critically at (and sometimes poke fun of) ourselves and the spaces we inhabit, those that nourish us, inspire us, and challenge us.

Colby College is a four-year liberal arts college in Waterville, Maine. Colby's 1,850 students come from nearly every state and more than 70 countries. Educational exploration is a way of life at Colby. Academics are rigorous, and learning goes way beyond sitting in a classroom-it's enhanced by new experiences, real-world research, project-based problem solving across all disciplines, small classes, and collaborative work with faculty. This project gives Colby students professional production experience, and will offer the chance for audiences to enjoy the thoughtful work of burgeoning young artists.
