I’m pleased to announce that I WAS NEVER ALONE, my new documentary play based on ethnographic research with adults with disabilities in Russia, will be on stage for the first time this October at UC San Diego!
A two week workshop process with director Joseph Megel (StreetSigns, UNC Chapel Hill) and international collaborator Vladimir Rudak (Musician, filmmaker, disability advocate) will feature professional regional actors in each of the roles, and UC San Diego Department of Theatre & Dance graduate students in design and tech roles. The workshop will culminate in two performances in the Shank Theatre a black box theater at the UC San Diego Jacobs Theatre District (shared with La Jolla Playhouse).
Mark your calendars for Friday, October 7 & Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 7pm.
Seating is limited for the two performances. Reserve a ticket now.
The show runs for 90 minutes and will be followed by a talk-back session one each night. The Friday talk back will feature discussion with the director, assistant director, cast and crew about the work of performing documentary theater and disability theater. The Saturday talk back will feature local scholars discussing performance ethnography, and representations of Russia and disability on the stage. Further talk back details TBA.
