Katie Van Winkle ’07 in DIONYSUS IN 69 (revisited with the Rude Mechanicals)

Katie van Winkle ’07 will be touring to NYC’s Live Arts with Austin theater company, the Rude Mechanicals.

From Katie: “In 2009, we re-created The Performance Group’s production of Dionysus in 69 , a long-running cult classic from 1968 based on Euripides’ The Bacchae. We trained with environmental/experimental theater exercises from Grotowski and Schechner, and worked with the Brian de Palma D69 film, and the original script published in a casebook–looking at both in great detail, trying to recreate both the exact mise-en-scene and the ever-changing, risky, truly-conditional experience of performers and audience/participators.”

November 6-10 at 8 pm
