Sunday Afternoons at the EAC: Independent & Non-traditional Theatre in the 21st Century, and its Coming Golden Age
January 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
The Sunday Afternoons at the EAC series, a winter offering of informal and interactive programs every Sunday at 3 pm at Eastport Arts Center, continues with Independent and Non-traditional Theatre in the 21st Century and Its Coming Golden Age, a talk by Mark Macey, on January 19. Macey will give an overview and discussion of the recent proliferation of non-traditional theatre companies and their roots in theatre history. From physical and devised theatre to performance art and time-based media, the presentation will make ties between the past and present to peek into theatre’s future.
“Stage veterans and newbies alike will enjoy this concise survey of the strangest corners of the theatre world and should leave with a renewed sense of enthusiasm for live performance,” said Macey.
A performance and theatre artist who works across disciplines, Macey is a graduate of Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre, and also holds a BA in Theatre Studies from the University of Utah. He is the founder and producer of Suckerpunch, a performance research collective whose productions range from multimedia installations to short films. He is currently the Island Fellow for EAC and Stage East in Eastport, Maine.
Sunday Afternoons at the EAC programs are held downstairs at the EAC. Hot drinks and refreshments are offered; donations are gratefully accepted. The series will run through April, skipping Easter Sunday.
