CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The "best of the best" student performances from beginning and advanced performance classes in the University of Northern Iowa's Department of Communication Studies will be presented at the "Performance Power Hour" at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 17, in the Interpreters Theatre in Lang Hall, Room 040.

"The Performance Power Hour is a way for students to share with the public the work we do in the Performance Studies classroom. It is a celebration of a semester's worth of hard work," said Danielle McGeough, assistant professor in UNI's Department of Communication Studies. "The students have a blast and the energy is contagious."

Performers come from four courses: Oral Interpretation, Performance and Social Change, the graduate Seminar in Performance Studies, and Technology and Human Communication (Digital Culture). The show will feature a variety of pieces, including personal narratives, manifestos, interpretations of literature, digital remixes and experimental performances.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Danielle McGeough, assistant professor of communication studies, at 319-273-6985 or danielle.mcgeough@uni.edu.
