The Center for the Performing Arts plans to present one public performance of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane work What Problem? on Friday, February 11, 2022. This engagement will include participation by two dozen local cast members, who will be chosen via an application process to ensure the broadest representation of our community on stage. The company will send representatives to rehearse with the community cast prior to the arrival of the full company, beginning February 7. This engagement includes a class visit to Penn State courses including Anthropology, Nursing (with a focus on storytelling as a way to process health impacts), and Dance. After the public performance, the company and local performers will engage in a talkback with the audience.
