Performance: Aaron Cowan, Fawn Douglas, Erin Drew, John McVay, and Laurence Myers Reese

Aaron Cowan, Fawn Douglas, Erin K. Drew, John McVay, and Laurence Myers Reese (all Art) have created REVIVER, a new performance art event hosted on the UNLV campus. This recurring event will feature UNLV students and local performers in a university setting. Performance art, which is art that combines visual art with dramatic performance, has a history of being interventionist and innovative. Performance allows artists to broadly experiment with a range of topics, including the body, politics, identity, and play. REVIVER is a new opportunity for practice-based research and a venue adding to the already growing performance art community in Las Vegas. The first event enjoyed a packed house Oct. 23 with performances by the organizers and their guests. More events will follow. Cowan, Douglas, Drew, McVay, and Reese are MFA students.
