“IMAGES” began with an optional dinner from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Phelps Hall dining room and featured cuisine from many places around the world. Attendees and performers alike enjoyed the food, which prepared them for the performance. The international showcase, to which admission is free, began at 7 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Theatre. The showcase featured an array of skits, dance, song and other clips of culture and language. More than 60 students participated from several countries.
The performances were lively, as members of the audience were treated to unique dances and routines that the students worked tirelessly to perfect over the preceding weeks. Brief intermissions between each act allowed the performers to prepare for the next routines and allowed the audience to be further wowed at the talent on the stage. The night ended with pictures and a party to celebrate all of the hard work. “IMAGES: A Reflection of Cultures” was sponsored by the Hope College Center for Global Engagement. The 2019 IMAGES is coming soon, so get ready to be wowed next year, at the Knickerbocker Theatre.
