Tickets going quickly for Lively Arts performances

Tickets are going fast for the remainder of Stanford Lively Arts' 2000-01 season. While several performances have been sold out, tickets remain for such well-known artists as the Tokyo String Quartet, the Kodo drummers, the Kronos Quartet and the Trisha Brown Dance Company.

Stanford faculty and staff save 35 percent off ticket prices, while students receive a 50-percent discount. For ticket information, call 725-ARTS.

On Friday and Saturday, the Dance Theater of Harlem makes its debut appearance on campus, while on Jan. 27 Ronald K. Brown and his young company Evidence take the stage. Brown is known for his social conscience, using dance to address racism, AIDS, love and loss.

The Kronos Quartet will be joined March 10 by the Romanian Gypsy band

Taraf de Haidouks. Taraf was introduced to campus audiences in 1999 as part of the Gypsy Caravan. "Don't miss. There's not a better night out to be had," The Times of London said of the band.

Adult humorist David Sedaris' 8 p.m. perfomance April 7 is sold out, so a 10 p.m. show has been added, for which tickets are available. His keenly incisive wit cuts through euphemisms and political correctness with a precision and humor that has been compared to that of Dorothy Parker.
