Week 12 Announcements: March 14-27, 2014

Welcome back from spring break! This week's blog features Special Events, Professional Opportunities, and more!

 SPECIAL EVENTS 

Denman Undergraduate Forum. Wednesday, March 26, 2014. 12:00-5:00pm in the RPAC. Support graduation BFA seniors as they share their research.

The Faun Experiment. Tuesday, April 1, 2014. 4:30pm at the US Bank Theatre, Ohio Union. Gregg Morzgala is expected to be in a wheelchair at age 40, disabled by Cerebral Palsy. Instead, he embarks on a dance  project with choreographer Tamar Rogoff. The Faun Experiment is a documentary film is shot over four years as Rogoff and Mozgala work to create a performance piece that changes Mozgala’s life. Through a process Rogoff invents as they go, Mozgola's heels touch the ground for the first time in his life. The limits of the human body turn out to be not so fixed, and the medical and disability worlds take notice. As the pair discover resources they didn’t know they had, art overturns science. Join Tamar and Gregg for the Ohio premier of this compelling story. 

Graduate Research Forum. Monday, March 31, 2014. 12:30-2:00, location TBA. Come see presentations from graduate students on the research that they are conducting here.

There Is No Silence. April 3-13, 2014. http://theatre.osu.edu/productions/marcelmarceau The Department of Theatre at The Ohio State University, in partnership with Ohio State's Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD), are proud to announce the WORLD PREMIERE ofThere Is No Silence, inspired by the great French mime artist Marcel Marceau. There Is No Silence is a kaleidoscopic fantasia that playfully investigates Marcel Marceau’s history, passions, and significance in a vibrant performance that fuses text with mime, dance with theater, personal reflection with archival truth, and the ridiculous with the transcendent. It will be performed in a richly mediated environment, featuring animation, projection, and live motion capture. The performance will be accompanied by a lobby exhibition of Marceau ephemera. Devised by MFA Acting Cohort, with a script by Jennifer Schlueter and Max Glenn, digital media design by Vita Berezina-Blackburn, Alex Oliszewski, Janet Parrott, Tom Heban, and Sheri Larrimer, and direction by Jeanine Thompson.
