A modern translation of Ovid's Echo and Narcissus.
The Theatre of War Series is a collection of three plays that was performed at the Gallatin Arts Festival on Thursday April 14th in front of an audience of mostly Gallatin students and faculty. Just under an hour long, with a cast of five, the performance was a mid-process showcase of the dramatic material we have come up with since we began this project. For Gwen, the urge originated from an in depth exploration of the ambiguity of Bertolt Brecht’s war play, Mother Courage and Her Children, through experimental workshops with actors. For Henry, it began with a close study of war and the body in German literature from World War I and the Thirty Year’s War. Sitting down late one night in January, while reviewing a barrage of emails from professors we had reached out to as potential mentors in creating a tutorial analysing theatre of war, we thought: why not question the strange urge to study this topic--why not write our own pieces? So we did.
