Slam: BAC Drama and Ellipses Slam Poetry Group Presents: Human Nature
The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name “BAC” is probably a roaring chant of “B-A-C, B-A-C, WHAT?” or a flurry of gyrating purple bodies. But BAC Drama, the theatrical counterpart of BAC: Dance, is no less breathtaking. Its riveting annual performance of one-act plays, monologues, skits and spoken word pieces is always challenging, inspiring and beautiful. To make things even better this year, BAC Drama has teamed up with Ellipses, a new spoken word group on campus, and the two promise a thoughtful, powerful evening of performance.
