NewsPress Release: 12/02/00Marlboro College Presents "Solo Theatre Works"
MARLBORO, VT - "Solo performance comes out of many things-physical situations, relationships to an object, a line of text, or the relationship to the audience," explains Eric Bass, theater professor at Marlboro College. "In a performance in which there is no 'character,' as such, it's the stage situation which determines the drama."
On the evening of Wednesday, December 6th at 7:30 p.m., six students from Bass's solo performance class will perform acts that have come from a semester's worth of effort. The pieces are not traditional monologues, but rather scenes based on text, which integrate movement and relationships to objects. According to Mat Doyle, sophomore at Marlboro College and one of the six performers, "What this class has done for me is open me up to another level of theatre - a level that is much more communicative than I had known before."
Wednesday night's performers include Doyle, Heather Carter, Tim Collins, Chris Mahoney, Nicole Reinsel, and Julia Catherine Slone. The event is free and open to the public, and the Whittemore Theatre is fully accessible. For more information, please call (802) 257-4333.
