Upcoming Performances

The Giving Voice Project: Ophelia



The Ophelia Project seeks to investigate gender roles through creative analysis of the character 
Ophelia from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The project leaders, Shelby VanNordstrand, UNO music faculty, and Jeremy Blair, Western Michigan dance faculty, posit that patriarchal systems have historically created social conditions that lead to unrealistic expectations and states of mental distress, especially for women. By bringing awareness to historic gender roles and the repercussions of specific gender expectations, the artists aim to promote gender equality and challenge a system that perpetuates gender inequality.
