Butler plans 8-day ArtsFest during second half of April

INDIANAPOLIS — A riot. A crushed uprising. A repressive regime. A human-rights movement. A new definition of dance. A new language in music.

Butler ArtsFest — eight days of music, theater, dance and art by Butler University students and well-known Indianapolis professional groups — will showcase all those and more in events centered around the theme of revolution.

Festivalgoers will be able to see more than 40 performances and other events on campus beginning April 18 — mostly at the Indianapolis campus’ new Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts.

Artists scheduled for the festival are former Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra conductor Raymond Leppard leading the Butler Symphony Orchestra; Butler Ballet, performing Paul Taylor’s version of “The Rite of Spring”; Butler Theatre performing “Lunar Revolution 2.0,” a piece created by the Butler Theatre Department; and Grammy Award-nominated percussionist Bobby Sanabria performing with the Butler Big Band.

Revolution is the theme for this year’s festival, said Ronald Caltabiano, dean of Butler’s Jordan College of the Arts. “Virtually every event is tied to that theme,” he said, “and that gives the public a kaleidoscopic view of elements in history or in art. It’s a reference point. It’s also important for our academic mission since a number of classes are growing up around revolution in politics and in the arts.”

The full schedule and ticket prices are below. For more information or to order tickets, visit
