Interact with issues prompted by LC Theatre Department’s upcoming production, Failure to Communicate, through displays in Watzek’s Atrium, October 15-29. During the weeks leading up to the opening of Failure to Communicate, we invite you to explore our evolving displays, which support this exciting production. October 15-19, check out our display of books, covering themes such as megalomaniacs, authoritarian regimes, popular uprisings, and artistic responses. October 22-29, take a few moments to view Jonathan Walters and Justin Counts’ collaborative video montage, which will be on display in the library atrium. And finally, October 24, attend a talk-back panel discussion in the Watzek Library Classroom.
Guest directed by Jonathan Walters, Artistic Director of Portland’s Hand2Mouth Theatre, Failure to Communicate explores a totalitarian society that locks up its citizens when they ‘speak out of place.’ That is, until a new woman arrives, and shakes up the docile obedient inmates, creating a small, but vital revolution which demands self-worth and freedom from their captors.
Questions or comments about these displays, may be directed to Stephanie Beene (firstname.lastname@example.org).
