REVIVE: How do we regain strength and move forward?

The Institute of Applied Creativity for Transformation (IACT), in conjunction with UpLift Physical Theatre, will present REVIVE, a one-night installation experience, from 7 - 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 8, at ArtStreet. Interested participants should RSVP to IACT@udayton.edu by Feb. 6.

How do we regain strength and energy today in order to pave the way forward?

This is REVIVE. IACT at ArtStreet brings to the UD community a one night, holistic labyrinth experience centered around dialogue, movement and momentum towards social action. Taking place in multiple spaces throughout the ArtStreet complex, REVIVE encourages participants to find agency, exploration and experimentation through self-reflective interactions. The experience will conclude with light refreshments and dialogue, ultimately challenging us to confront: what does “REVIVE” mean to you? REVIVE will provoke conversations in a non-judgemental and open atmosphere, where participants can build a deeper understanding of self and each other and gain a new perspective on how they can take action.

REVIVE will be co-facilitated with UpLift Physical Theatre, who will set an open atmosphere for the event and engage participants through guided energies and sensibility of spaces. UpLift, a collaborative group of artists trained in ensemble-based physical theatre, is currently in residency with the Department of Theatre, Dance and Performance Technology.

REVIVE is the second event presented by IACT as part of D-Talks, or Dayton Talks. D-Talks is a video and dialogue format that challenges us to address social/political issues that pertain to the University of Dayton campus through open conversation. D-Talks made its debut in November of 2016, with a video compilation of various faculty offering their discipline as encouragement for students to think deeply about their vote in the Presidential Election. Following the release of the video, a dinner dialogue was held in which participants experienced an open atmosphere and neutral ground to address how a divided nation can come together.

REVIVE is a continuation of the 2016-17 IACT theme of QUEST, moving from problem space to creative solutions as we embark on a connected journey from one’s own selfish “I” to the need for a collaborative “we.”

At the Institute of Applied Creativity for Transformation (IACT) at ArtStreet, we seek to empower a forward-thinking 21st century student with the ability to confidently develop the imaginative and creative skills necessary to excel and impact today’s innovative and global workforce regardless of degree focus. Our mindset of applied creativity stems from transdisciplinary learning (the unity of intellectual frameworks beyond the disciplinary perspectives) and humanity-centered design, harnessing imagination and vision to effectively implement unexpected, innovative ideas that can change the world.
