Connecticut Arts Connections for the Week of Oct. 22

Dance-theater artist Judy Dworin's new work “Meditations from a Garden Seat,” will have its premiere at Charter Oak Cultural Center, Nov. 1-3. It is intended to "challenge common perceptions of the incarcerated by depicting their questing spirit, permanent sorrows, and joyous transformations within the barren confines of prison." General admission is $25, $15 for seniors and GHAC Let’s Go! members, and $10 for students. For more information, visit www.charteroakcenter.org or call 860-249-1207.

Caveman, a play by Richard Maxwell, directed by Roy Faudree will be presented in Garmany Hall at Trinity College’s Austin Arts Center, Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 pm and Friday and Saturday, Nov. 16 and 17 at 4:30 and 8:30 pm. Running time is one hour, with no intermission. Admission is free; seating is limited, however, so reservations are strongly recommended. 860-297-2199.

Due to illness, last Friday's Navaratri Festival concert, "B. Balasubrahmaniyan: Vocal Music of South India", was postponed until Friday, Nov. 2 at 8 pm in Crowell Concert Hall at Wesleyan University. The  Box Office is contacting all ticket holders; tickets for the postponed concert will be honored at the rescheduled concert.
