September 30-October 9, 2016- DREAM BOXES two contemporary pieces for theatre, Directed by Bill Walters
Inspired byclassic texts as well as personal narrative, My Father’s House and The Forest. The Desert, the two pieces that comprise Dream Boxes, use contemporary techniques to craft a thoroughly compelling, completely unique theatre experience.
My Father's House isa tale of revenge and murder based on the Oresteia by Aeschylus, and the Iphigenia cycle by Euripides. Told through pure movement My Father’s House is imagined as a collective dream, telling the story of the curse of the house of Atreus.Using both spoken text and movement, The Forest, The Desert is a journey of personal narrative from Dante’s Inferno to Chief Joseph’s surrender, created and performed by a diverse cast of UNM’s finest performers.
