Multimedia performance at EMU


Item by Jim Bishop

blue.gif“Blue Like Jazz/Live,” a solo theatrical multimedia performance based on celebrated author Donald Miller’s book, will be presented 7 p.m. Friday in Lehman Auditorium at Eastern Mennonite University.

Professional actor Jason Hildebrand incorporates video, projected motion graphic and an original jazz soundscape in presenting a personal, raw and humorous reflection on spirituality, God, and community.

Hildebrand, also a dramatist and performance coach, has performed in theater, film and television and tours the globe with his critically-acclaimed solo performances. He also works with organizations, theater and film companies and educational institutions in various capacities across North America and in Europe.

“Blue Like Jazz/Live, besides being an amazing theatrical experience, seeks to provide a catalyst for drawing people into a deeper exploration of the soul and to foster community,” EMU campus pastor Brian Martin Burkholder said.

The event is sponsored by the Student Government Association, Campus Ministries, Young People’s Christian Association and Campus Activities Council.

General admission is $5 at the door; free with EMU I.D.
