POST THEATRE COMPANY WILL PERFORM AT THE PRESTEGIOUS
INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY THEATRE ASSOCIATION (IUTA) CONFERENCE IN
MANIZALES, COLOMBIA!
The Post Theatre Company, the not-for-profit resident theatre company of the
Department of Theatre, Dance, and Arts Management on the LIU Post campus, is proud
to present That Art Thou at the XI World Congress of University Theatre at the
Universidad de Calas in Manizales, Colombia this
September.
In partial completion of BFA candidate Olivia Lodge’s
Undergraduate Honors Thesis, Post Theatre Company
presents this devised theatre piece, conceived and structured
by the ensemble under the direction of professor Maria
Porter.
Influenced by Sanskrit drama, the piece, entitled That Art Thou, looks at the Sanskrit
mantra tat tvam asi that asserts that we are all influenced by others, with the essential
question- can this currently exist in a post-modern, media driven context. The piece
examines the tensions between meaning and ritual, memory and forgetting- and the
place of ego that transcends the essential idea of interconnectedness.
The actor training at Post is unique in its commitment to both a physical and
psychological approach to acting. It combines the training methods of Tadashi Suzuki
with basic principles sourced in the Stanislavsky system to create a theatrical
experience that transcends the boundaries of theatre/music/ and dance. It is with this
aesthetic lens that this piece hopes to honor older traditions of theatre, while affording
the audience a chance to experience these ideas in both an intellectual and visceral
way.
The performance will take place in Colombia in Bifilo 2 on September 6, 2016 at
2:30pm.
The piece will be also be performed on the LIU Post Campus on the Little Theatre
Mainstage to open Post Theatre Company’s 2016/17 season on September 12th at
9:30pm.
