Tampa, Florida-Hillsborough Community College’s Visual Arts (VAPA) series is a state-of-the-art work, artist, and affordable performance for the Tampa Bay community.

Choreographed duos Alice Rock and Florian Rockner, also known as FLOCK, present a night of exploring the joys, struggles and wonders of deep connections with other beings. “Familiar” follows the evolution of FLOCK, emphasizing the comfort of trusting each other and the courage to explore beyond what we know. This performance is a journey of discovery and requires you to consider what you need to move forward and what you can leave behind.

The performance will take place at 7:30 pm at the Main Stage Theater on the Evercity Campus. Both face-to-face and virtual tickets are provided and you must always wear a mask while attending a face-to-face performance.

General and virtual admission tickets are $ 15. HCC students, faculty and staff can enter for free. See hccfl.edu / vapaguest series for more information.
