On a hot, sunny day in Lubbock, one where the sky was its typical baby blue with a few picturesque clouds dotted about, I was set to meet and interview Dr. Jonathan Marks, a man I’d heard much about. There was so much to ask him. After all, a career of over 40 years in theatre working with several of the most renowned companies and universities in the country is no easy feat. So once we sat down, I started at the very beginning (a very good place to start).
Dance is poised to become a national program this year, and much of that has to do with the work and research of our faculty over the summer, which not only speaks to the diversity of our program and profession, but also provides students with insight into the professional and practical world of the arts.
For most of my education, fall semesters smelled like mimeograph ink. When professors handing out well, anything paper, students would smell it. And that’s what this fall semester smells like. So much of that has to do with our new building.
