Davis, Phillips delegates to International Theatre Institute World Congress

CC Associate Drama/Dance Professor Clinton Turner Davis and Thaddeus Phillips, a member of the Colorado College class of 1994, attended the 32nd International Theatre Institute World Congress (ITI-UNESCO) in Madrid, Spain, as U.S. delegates this fall. Founded in Prague in 1948 by UNESCO and the international theater community, the organization aims to promote international exchange of knowledge and increase understanding and cooperation in theater arts.

In addition to teaching at CC, Davis also serves as the associate artistic director/producer of New Federal Theatre in New York. His 2006 production of "The Watsons Go To Birmingham 1965" was voted one of the outstanding plays of the season by the Twin Cities press. In December, Davis will direct "The Odyssey" by Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott in the South Theatre of the Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center at Colorado College.

Phillips currently works as an actor, designer and director in Philadelphia. He is the founder of Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental, an international theater team, which incorporates contemporary themes and classic texts with innovative design. His shows include "El Conquistador," "Drive-In Lost Soles," "Kafka on Ice" and "Red-Eye to Havre de Grace."
