"Staging the Clean House of Dust" with Bess Rowen

Wednesday, Sep 21, 2016

What are the words that build houses on stage? What does the idea of a house mean to us as a symbol or a literal component of art and performance? Join scholar Bess Rowen, MA '11, as she speaks about the stage directions that build houses on stage and then challenge our conceptions of those structures and symbols. Continuing and building upon the exploration of words staging houses, Ashley Brockington, Cara Francis, and Kyra Sims, members of the New York Neo-Futurists, will present a special interpretation of some of The House of Dust’s text. Based on their artistic tenets in the vein of Futurism—short form, original pieces, performed by the performers as themselves—the Neos will surely make us all think about this text in a new and exciting way.
