Send in the crowds
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.
