The Character Projects: A Night of Theatre with Dell’Arte’s International M.F.A. Students
December 6 – 9, 2018 8PM
Character Projects Created and Performed by DAI’s 2nd-year MFA students
Share a transformative evening in the theatre with these funny, poignant, and surreal characters, as they each brave the perils of their world and their fate.
The Character Projects performance is the culmination of two months of in-depth physical character study. Each student explores the depth of their own transformation—how to create a character who is different from them, and possessed of the heightened physical and vocal dimension which "lives" on the stage. These characters serve as the point of origin for a story that the actor must develop and hone, a dramatic journey. Full of passion and humor, by turns funny, poignant and surreal, the characters come to life and encounter their fates in the space of the stage, where everyday life opens its doors onto the surprising and unexpected.
Dell’Arte International is the premiere North American Center for the performance, research, and training of the actor-creator, offering the only M.F.A. program in the U.S. in Ensemble-Based Physical Theatre. At Dell’Arte, students craft original work in every respect- they are the performers and the authors. Experience this unique process in action through The Character Projects.
The Character Projects: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Carlo Theatre, 131 H St (at First St), Blue Lake. These popular performances are all pay-what-you-can, with reservations highly encouraged.
