Out and About: VAINGLORIOUS features several Swat alums and faculty!

_MG_6906 Visiting Assistant Professor of Dramaturgy Rebecca Wright directs VAINGLORIOUS for the 2013 Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts! Factions clash and empires rise and fall in Applied Mechanics’ Vainglorious: The Epic Feats of Notable Persons in Europe After the Revolution.

26 actors gather in a room to recreate the rise and fall of the Napoleonic Empire — in one hour. As part of the Philadelphia International Festival of Art, this dazzling spectacle from theatre company Applied Mechanics sweeps the audience up in a choose-your-own-adventure play, building cities with canvas, countries with bodies, and heros with attitude. Formidable armies shift and change around you as you wander through history, free to follow whichever character you choose. Part dance, part theatre, all epic, Vainglorious envelops the audience in a lush fever-dream that wrestles with the monster of ambition. In an era that redefined the rules of engagement in both love and war, characters draw new battle lines. Which side(s) are you on?

The cast includes alums Isa St. Clair ’11 and Nell Bang-Jensen ’11 and Adriano Shaplin (Visiting Assistant Professor of Playwriting)
