Send in the crowds

Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

In con­junc­tion with the One on One suite of solo in­stal­la­tions hang­ing at SITE Santa Fe, at 6 p.m. Tues­day, April 27, theater ed­u­ca­tor Kimberly Jan­narone gives a lec­ture. Jan­narone, an as­so­ci­ate pro­fes­sor of theater arts at the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia at Santa Cruz, dis­cusses the ideal au­di­ence of French play­wright, poet, ac­tor, and theater di­rec­tor An­tonin Ar­taud (1896-1948). Ar­taud’s work and life in­spired

One on One artist Terry Allen’s multimedia in­stal­la­tion and ex­per­i­men­tal theater piece, Ghost

Ship Rodez, re­cently per­formed at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter. Jan­narone, whose de­but book,

Ar­taud and His Dou­bles, is re­leased later this year by the Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan Press, ex­plores re­la­tion­ships be­tween au­di­ences and per­form­ers, bring­ing crowd the­ory into the the­atri­cal realm. Ex­am­in­ing the po­lit­i­cal and in­tel­lec­tual cli­mates of Europe dur­ing Ar­taud’s ca­reer, Jan­narone strives to an­a­lyze his di­rect­ing work and the­o­ret­i­cal writ­ings. Tick­ets for the lec­ture at SITE Santa Fe (1606 Paseo de Per­alta), ti­tled “Crowds, Cru­elty, Com­mu­nion,” are $10 for adults, $5 for stu­dents. The event is co-spon­sored by Box Gallery. Tick­ets are avail­able on­line at www.site­santafe.org. Call SITE, 989-1199, for more in­for­ma­tion.
