The public is invited to attend several special events to be held in the coming weeks at Lewis & Clark College.

  • The Geisslers Hofcomoedianten from Czech Republic will perform “The Stilt Triology,” a piece made up of three short street theater performances on stilts, on Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Each of the performances represents a culture from the European Baroque era — German, Italian and French. The company applies elements of street theater, classic wooden stilts, jumping stilts and live music to tell timeless stories and excavate the connections between the cultures during the Baroque era. The performance is free.

  • The Philosphy Colloquium lecture series will begin Oct. 19 with a series of lectures scheduled through Nov. 30. The schedule includes:

    Oct. 19 — Cultural Minds: “Using Rules to Buttress Reasoning” lecture by Ron Mallon of Washington University in St. Louis
