TAKE FIVE Power of Performance

CIRCUS & SCHOLARSHIP: Spurrier Gymnasium was transformed into a world of juggling, acrobatics, clowning, and dance this spring when Take Five Scholar Adam Lanman presented a performance of “No Elephants Allowed,” his year-long thesis project in the performing arts. Active in Strong Jugglers and the Opposite of People Theatre Company, the physics and astronomy major worked with the Program of Movement and Dance—and classmates Sarah Smith, Chase Henson, Olivia Morgan, Andrea Stewart, Jasmine Furnace, Sarah Goodman, and others—on the project. Lanman plans to begin studies in the fall for a doctoral degree in physics at Brown University. Photograph by Brandon Vick
