2017–2018 SEASON THEME: SITE/INSIGHT
Theatre and Dance at Macalester is saying ‘good-bye’ to the Janet Wallace Theatre building, home since 1964! The last performances in the dear old spaces will be in Fall 2017; then, we’ll move our performances into the campus and community while construction is underway for a beautiful new building.
THDA’s provisional performance sites in Spring-Fall 2018 invite all to “re-perceive” performance and our assumed ways of knowing and belonging in familiar places. We’ll make performances in un/conventional spaces, and through our re-perceptions gain insights about lecture halls, fields libraries, lobbies, gardens. During our Wanderjahr, we invite all to experience our shared sense of place— and generate new encounters, new stories through live, ongoing theatre and dance!
