The Cohen New Works Festival presented by the University Co-op, is a week-long showcase of new work created by UT students held every other Spring in various locations in and around the Winship Drama Building and the University of Texas campus. It is not just an event, but a celebration of a continuously ongoing process–the creation of new work.

A confluence of Huck Finn narrative and pop music idolatry, “Slip River” follows a runaway orphan on his quest for freedom in a mythical land of milk, honey, and Beyonce.  Incorporating dream-like soundscapes and installation, interactive dance and text, "Slip River" travels audiences through the underbelly of UT’s Payne Theater, where peril– or possibility– are just around the river’s bend.

Project Leads:
Katie Bender, Abe Koogler, and Gabrielle Reisman
Creative Team:
Marshall Bessieres, Stephanie Busing, Briana Garcia, Sam Gorena, Kristen Jackson, Stephen Mabry, Mercedes O’Bannion, James Ogden, Kelsey Oliver, Ian Reese, Karen Rodriguez, and Merin Rogers

Following this performance there will be a talkback session held in the venue. 
Talkbacks are brief discussions about the projects designed to gather feedback and provide a forum for engagement with the work.
