The Intergalactic Nemesis

Kennedy Theatre, UH Mānoa Campus
Saturday, January 12 @ 7:30pm

The Intergalactic Nemesis

When The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel premiered in 2010, more than 2,100 people turned out. Now, in its inaugural touring season, the production hits 24 venues around the country. This one-of-a-kind all-ages show is not to be missed.

The premise is simple: a period adventure story (with no small share of laughs) featuring Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott as they face the most serious threat Earth has ever known: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.

Phoebe Cummings

UH Art Gallery, UH Mānoa Campus
February 24 – April 5
(opening reception on Sunday, February 24 from 3:00 – 5:00pm)

Phoebe Cummings

Working predominantly from unfired clay, Phoebe Cummings constructs pieces directly on site as temporary installations or interventions within a place. Both material and process are of particular significance to Cummings; her intensive labor of making is heightened by the ephemerality of the work’s existence. Often the pieces come to exist only as a photograph or memory. Cummings will be developing a site-specific installation in the UH Art Gallery.

Gallery hours

Monday–Friday 10:30–5:00pm; Sunday 12:00–5:00pm. Closed holidays and Saturdays.

Ticket Information

Free admission. Parking fees may apply.
