Lots to do at Sensoria

Posted By on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 11:33 AM

More arts! More arts! It seems a bit like Sensoria - a nine-day-long celebration of visual arts, film, music, literature, history and culture-related events - is the answer to threatening demands from Charlotteans looking to be entertained at Central Piedmont Community College. But, really, the folks in charge of the annual event are just that good - they know Charlotteans want diversified quality arts, no pressure or pitchforks needed.

Highlights of this year's festivities include CPCC Opera Theatre's Dialogues of the Carmelites, a three-act opera set in the horrific backdrop of the French Revolution; playwright August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Fences, a drama about a black man's struggle with going from baseball league star to a garbage man; the Joe Bonham Art Exhibit, showcasing illustrations of wounded veterans by combat artists; Women in Film: Documentaries on the American Justice System, screening Therese Bartholomew's The Final Gift, a documentary shot during the course of Bartholomew's seven-year pursuit to find closure to her brother's murder and come face to face with his killer in a South Carolina prison; and an appearance during a special authors showcase by sci-fi/fantasy writer, Edward McKeown (watch an interview where he talks about writing and characters from his latest book series below, courtesy of intern Danielle Brodie).

What else, you ask? Visit sensoria.cpcc.edu/events for more details on the many events going on. Prices/times/locations vary. For more information, call 704-330-6534 or visit http://tix.cpcc.edu.
