Kyiv City Ballet

Sept 18 @ 7:30 p.m.

The C. Shaw and Nancy K. Smith Artist Series is proud to welcome the Kyiv City Ballet to Davidson College for a performance of their mixed repertoire show “Tribute to Peace.” The day before Ukraine was invaded in February, the Kyiv City Ballet unknowingly took one of the last flights out of Kyiv. The company flew to Paris to begin a long planned tour. They have not been able to return home. The country of France has sheltered them and the company has been performing throughout France, and now Europe, since the invasion began. We are excited to be part of their U.S. premiere tour this fall. Tickets can be purchased in person or online at the Union Ticket Office.

Secret Society of Crafters – Hearts on Fiber

Sept 21 @ 10:00 a.m.

Crafting is more fun with other people, which is why we created the “Secret” Society of Crafters. The title says “secret,” but we’re a not-so-secret, not-so-exclusive group who meets to stitch, craft, crochet, knit, sit and talk. We may or may not talk about knitting, yarn bombing, hand dying, or the latest stitch. We may even talk about world domination. You won’t know unless you come. Connect with crafters in the area, find the motivation to pick up that project again, and benefit from the wisdom of a passionate crafting group. The “Secret” Society of Crafters meets outside the store every Wednesday and Sunday at 10:00 a.m. weather permitting. We hope to see you there!
