Theatre Professor Lisa Marie Rollins on HowlRound Theatre Commons live stream on 2nd Tuesday, October 27th, at 6 pm MDT

From Professor Marie Rollins:

"Hello friends,

I just want to share I'll be on a HowlRound Theatre Commons live stream on Tuesday October 27th at 6pm MDT.

I'll be facilitating in conversation with Mellon Foundation Playwright in Residence Star Finch, director and playwright Ellen Sebastian Chang. Our conversation will center the Black imagination, Black futuristic storytelling and the femme divine. We will consider the world we live in as a future-present and discuss ritual and intention as revolutionary practice. Woven in will be a discussion of Finch's new play, Shipping & Handling, that I'll be directing in the future, developed with Crowded Fire's new play Lab."

Short Film About Dallo Fall

This is a link to a short film about our Senegalese dance instructor and DanSix choreographer, Dallo Fall. Her wisdom goes far beyond how to move your body, as she teaches us to drum and to sing and most importantly, how to survive.

A special thanks to John-Henry Williams '19, film and media major, for making the film.
