Charles Mee’s (re)making project
Charles Mee’s (re)making project, a collaborative performance project, will be presented by the UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance Nov. 17-19 in the Main Theater, Wright Hall.
Directed by Erika Chong Shuch with dramaturgy by Sarah-Rose
Leonard, the project turns the stage directions in all the plays
written by Mee as
a starting place for a devised work directed by Shuch and created in
collaboration with a student ensemble. Mee’s stage directions are
poetic prompts that can be reimagined as a springboard for a devised,
movement-driven performance work. Working with dramaturg
Leonard, the performance uses stage directions from selected works
that speak to our contemporary moment.
Erika Chong Shuch is a performance maker, choreographer and director whose topic-driven ruminations coalesce into imagistic assemblages of music, movement, text, and design. Interested in expanding ideas around how performance is created and shared, Erika’s work has been performed in city halls, theaters, industrial offices spaces, diners, parking lots and food courts.
Performances begin at 7 p.m. Adult tickets are $10, faculty/staff tickets are $8, and student/senior tickets are $5. Tickets may be purchased at the UC Davis Ticket Office, located on the north side of Aggie Stadium, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, by phone 530-752-2471 during the same hours, or online at theatredance.ucdavis.edu.
The Department of Theatre and Dance is part of the UC Davis College of Letters and Science.
