Sing Protest, Sing Peace kicked off the Theatre and Dance Department’s season theme of “Youth Cultures,” setting the stage for a season of new and devised work. Using physical theatre techniques and the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq, an ensemble of six Macalester first-years, guided by award-winning Fringe director Isabel Nelson ’04, breathe life into a not-so-distant story of social unrest: the history of textile workers in turn-of-the century America. With New York City as its background, and the Uprising of the 20,000 in 1909-10 and the Triangle Fire of 1911 as its historical inspiration, Sing Protest, Sing Peace investigates questions of love, duty, and honor in a time of struggle.
The cast, all class of 2016, consists of Laura Humes of Shoreline, Wash., Hannah Merrill of Seattle, Wash., Rebecca Murtha of Silver Spring, Md., Zoe Nardone of North Bennington, Vt., Jon Riddle of Minneapolis, Minn., and Stacy Rozansky of Larchmont, N.Y.
