Students from the fall course THR 451/MTD 451: Theater Rehearsal and Performance utilized an investigative performance-driven process to joyously uplift lives that have ended, using theater, song and dance. Led by visiting theater director Sam Pinkleton and working with other professional collaborators, students created theatrical work in large groups, small groups and alone. During an ongoing global pandemic, this living archive of the dead offers up space for proposals, reflections, indictments, celebrations and imagined alternatives to a world numbed by an ambush of death. The class has culminated in student micro-projects that can be freely viewed in any order, at any time, from anywhere. FREE; open to Princeton University community. RSVP to vcd@princeton.edu to join the toast on Zoom.

The first fully-staged production of "Unbecoming," a play by Princeton theater alumna Emma Watkins ’18. Lady Charlotte Guest is a Victorian housewife and mother of seven. Much to her husband’s dismay, she aspires to become the first person to translate the Mabinogion — a collection of ancient Welsh stories — into English. Through her translation, she encounters Blodeuwedd, a woman conjured from flowers as a wife for her creator and punished for her infidelity. As Charlotte struggles to reconcile her creative ambitions with 19th-century expectations of marriage and motherhood, she must also confront the power and responsibility she holds in retelling Blodeuwedd’s story. Watch the video on-demand through January 31, 2021. FREE.
