What if ASU Art Museum were a bunker? And what if said bunker was holding a store of water? That’s the premise of [DE/AS]cending, a theatrical and immersive experience that brings two troupes of master of fine arts students who specialize in theater to engage spaces throughout the museum. They’ll create a world in which viewers of the micro-performances search for answers and have the opportunity to view works in a choose-your-own-adventure-style setting. Sink in when performances take place at 7 p.m., 7:40, and 8 on Monday and Tuesday, April 27 and 28, at ASU Art Museum, 51 East 10th Street in Tempe. Tickets are $5 and can be reserved via

Mon., April 27, 7, 7:40 & 8 p.m.; Tue., April 28, 7, 7:40 & 8 p.m., 2015
