Theater Archives

Princeton Professors Jill Dolan and Stacy Wolf serve as the co-editors for the Winter 2014 edition of the prestigious theater journal TDR: The Drama Review, a Journal of Performance Studies. This special guest issue is entitled “Performing Desire” and features articles by Princeton faculty members Judith Hamera and Brian Herrera. All four scholars teach in Princeton’s Lewis Center for the Arts.

The Lewis Center for the Arts will present Selfie Expression, an end-of-semester showing of digital self portraits created by students in the fall Princeton Atelier course, “Pay Attention: The Art of Here and Now,” taught by theater and media director Marianne Weems. The showing will take place on Thursday, December 12 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. in the Marie and Edward Matthews ’53 Acting Studio at 185 Nassau Street. This culminating performance will take the form of a gallery installation, with areas of the Acting Studio devoted to each of the student artists. Visitors are encouraged to come and go throughout the event.

The Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Theater will premiere This is an Elephant, written and directed by senior Ava Geyer and featuring senior Kanoa Mulling, on October 17 at the Marie and Edward ’53 Acting Studio at 185 Nassau Street. Distant fathers, fractured marriages, absent mothers, vying siblings all collide in this exploration of the chasm between what we need to express and what we're allowed to say in this new work.
