THESIS FESTIVAL – Performances on Zoom May 14–17, and May 21–24, 8 p.m.
The Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre is excited to announce its 2020 Thesis Festival. This year's Thesis Festival features three new works created by members of the graduating MFA class, who have adapted to the current circumstances by making their projects available to audiences online. The online Thesis Festival marks the culmination of three years of graduate study by an international ensemble of theatre artists from Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, and the United States.
There will be an opportunity for a talkback with the artists on Thursday, May 14, and Saturday, May 16, on Zoom after the show. Here are this year’s Thesis Projects:
-“Once Upon a Time I Was Addicted to You,” created by Veenadari Lakshika Jayakody, Jayampathi Guruge, and Nipuni Sharadahra; performed by Veenadari Lakshika Jayakody.
-“Disparities,” created and performed by Delilah Stowers, Dionna Fletcher, and Everson Ndlovu.
-“Boo Boo: The Big Ouchie,” created and performed by Andrew Lupkes, Abigail Maguire and Joël Vining, with provocation from Erin Crites.
