STOMP and star of MTV’s hit series Catfish: The TV Show highlight the 2013 Fall Panorama series at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Brian Adler, chair of the Panorama Committee, said the acclaimed international percussion sensation STOMP will come to the SWOSU campus on Tuesday, September 10, and Nev Schulman of Catfish will visit SWOSU on Tuesday, November 5.

Adler said a Panorama event concert is also planned during the spring semester in the new Pioneer Cellular Event Center. Details about that event will be announced in the near future.

STOMP is a unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy that began as a street performance in Brighton, UK. STOMP has performed in more than 50 countries and the production uses everything but conventional percussion instruments—supermarket carts, plumbing fixtures, paint cans or kitchen sinks—to fill the stage with a compelling and unique act that is often imitated but never duplicated.

Tickets go on sale August 12. Advance tickets for STOMP are $5 for SWOSU students, faculty/staff and emeriti; $10 for others; and $20 for all tickets at the door. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center on the SWOSU campus. Tickets will be available at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office, Room 205 of the Administration Building and at the SWOSU Business Office, Room 109 of the Administration Building. They can also be purchased with a credit card by calling 580.774.3019.

Schulman comes to SWOSU in November to share his experiences and perspectives on the evolving medium of social media. In a world where everyone is constantly connected digitally, social media has made communicating easier but this digital world might also complicate relationships.

Following the success of the 2010 documentary thriller Catfish, MTV’s TV show tackles the mystery and complexities of dating in a digital world. The series follows Schulman as he takes viewers on a deeply personal journey that goes inside the stories of young people as their online-only romantic relationships collide.

Admission to the Schulman event is free.

SWOSU’s Panorama series has been bringing outstanding events to the Weatherford campus since 1991. Panorama is partially supported by an endowed lectureship sponsored by SBC.
