Sacred Heart Archive in weeklong residency
Members of the Sacred Heart Archive are on campus for a week-long residency to support the ensemble cast of “Here and Now.” The residency will conclude with two workshops and a showing of the company’s devised production, “The Key Said Run and the Door Said Fly.” This free performance will be held on Saturday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Kimmel and will be followed by a post-show discussion open to the public.
Described as a Feminist revision of English folk song “Mr. Fox,” this play blurs the lines between myth and personal narrative and examines whether the size of the body can determine a woman’s capacity for love. This multi-disciplinary arts project uses physical performance, traditional songs, iconic images, found objects, folk tales and autobiography to explore and re-envision personal and cultural memories. It contains mature language and situations, and seating is limited for this production.
Co-Founders of The Sacred Heart Archive, Melissa Thompson and Julia Hinderlie, will be in residence at the college from March 30 to April 5. On April 5 they will host two workshops that are open to the student body. There will be a Re-Imagined Myth Workshop and a Physical Theatre Workshop offered to students of any major. Throughout the week, Dr. Thompson and Julia Hinderlie will also be consulting with the cast of “Here and Now,” attending rehearsals, and offering guidance prior to the late April opening of the production.
The residency and performance are sponsored by the Department of Theatre and the LACE Committee, and the workshops are sponsored by the Student Theatre Council. Sign-up sheets for the workshops are posted on the STC board outside of Armstrong 48G. The production is intended for mature audiences.
