April 25 performance will raise funds for Japan relief

Students in the University of Iowa Department of Theatre Arts will present Iowa Love for Japan—Love Through Performance, a benefit theatre, music, dance, and video event to aid victims of the recent earthquakes and tsunami in northern Japan, at 8 p.m., Monday, April 25, in Theatre B of Theatre Building.

Admission is free, but donations to Japan relief through ShelterBox USA will be solicited. ShelterBox responds to disasters by delivering boxes of aid to those who are in need. Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10 people with a durable tent and essential equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. Donations can be made at bit.ly/iowaloveforjapan.

Artists will include Soren Olsen, Tricia Park, John Kaufmann, Peige Zhou, the Hinkler Twins, Yuichi Ura, Betsy Ray & Les Dames du Burlesque, John Watkins, Sarah Genta, and Jessie Traufler.
