Diversity Events

This young driving force in Nordic world music draws inspiration from folk and traditional Scandinavian music and reshapes it with an endlessly innovated and contemporary approach. The Dreamers’ Circus trio musicians Nikolaj Busk (Denmark, piano and accordion), Ale Carr (Sweden cittern), and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (Demark, violin)—display inventiveness and talent in their approach to performances.

Based in music from Denmark and Sweden as well as Iceland, Finland, and the far reaches of the windswept Faroe Islands, they view these traditional roots merely as a point of departure from which to expand. In playing, they seek to unlock imaginations and allow the mind to wander to a place where stories unfold. The name of the band is no accident. The magical feel upon entering the circus tent, surrounded by vividly colored memories… Dreamers’ Circus strives to engage your senses and invoke a place of freedom, somewhere for our imagination to play in and a space for dreaming.

All Ovations events for the spring 2021 season are Pay-as-You-Can. Visit our ticket site to rent this video.

According to Take Back the Night.org:

  • One in three women worldwide experience some form of sexual violence or intimate partner violence.
  • One in six men experience sexual violence.
  • Less than 50 percent of victims report these crimes. 

The IUP Haven Project is the department on campus that assists students with the issues of sexual violence, domestic/dating violence, and stalking. We educate the campus community on these issues by providing educational programming and awareness campaigns and events. 

If you or someone you know has been affected by these issues, resources are available to help.
