“Collage of Movement”

You are now standing in “the Quad”; a favorite spot for students and the home of George Tsutakawa’s Centennial Fountain.  From an essay on the early days of lockdown to the timeless work of William Shakespeare, the collection you’ll experience here reflects Tsutakawa’s ode to time, humanity, and to “life as the great continuing cycle of all things” (Universty of Washington Press).

From nature to travel to everything in between, creative nonfiction offers writers opportunities to reflect on their environment and experiences in deeply descriptive personal ways. These example mini-essays emerged during our shared experimentation with voice and form in the Creative Writing Program's fall 2020 section of our course Writing Creative Nonfiction.

Twelfth Night was part of Uncharted Waters, a unique on-line collaboration between Seattle University, Cornish College of the Arts, and the University of Washington. Seattle University’s Rosa Joshi (Bring Down the House, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, upstart crow collective) directed William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, while Cornish College of the Arts’ Sheila Daniels (Indecent, Seattle Rep; The Wolves, ACT Theatre) and UW Drama alum Porscha Shaw (Nina Simone: Four Women, Seattle Rep; Saint Joan, ArtsWest) co-directed a devised piece Bodies of Water that was in conversation with Shakespeare’s play. Both productions featured acting and design by students and faculty from all three schools, and both were rehearsed and performed entirely online, as the three school came together to meet the challenges of isolation with radical togetherness.

Seattle University Choirs present Karen Marrolli's "To Dust"

The Seattle University Choirs (Dr. Leann Conley-Holcom, Director of Choral & Vocal Activities; Dr. Lee Peterson, Assistant Director & Pianist) proudly present Karen Marrolli's TO DUST. This performance is a tribute to the longstanding annual tradition of a choral concert during Winter Quarter honoring the Christian liturgical season of Lent, and this text has been especially poignant during this difficult season as our University community and the world cope with the myriad impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
