Studio Theatre, Monday, April 18, 7:30pm
A Snapshot Into the World of 20th Century Surrealism
The Emory & Henry College Theatre Department will provide audiences with a snapshot into the world of 20th century surrealism during performances that run from April 14 to April 17 on the E&H campus.
Emory & Henry will present an “An Evening of Surrealist Theatre: Maeterlinck’s ‘The Blind’ and Apollinaire’s ‘The Breasts of Tiresias’” Thursday evening, April 14 and continue through Sunday, April 17. The Thursday through Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and the Sunday matinee is at 4 p.m. All performances are in the Studio Theatre.
This event, which is the final production of the 2011-12 academic year, is directed by Dr. Kelly Bremner with Professor Daniel L. Wheeler providing technical direction and scenic design.
“The Blind” gives a darker, more symbolist look at the 20th century, while “The Breasts of Tiresias” is a bright, bubbly and downright silly take on the surreal. Maeterlinck was a Belgian playwright, poet and essayist awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1911, and Apollinaire was a French poet and very influential art critic.
Because seating is very limited in the Studio Theatre, advanced reservations are highly recommended. Admission is free to Emory & Henry College students, faculty and staff. Tickets for students from other institutions are $3 and for adults, $8 in advance and $10 at the door.
