FOSTERING FORGIVENESS
FEBRUARY: 24 | 25 | 29
MARCH: 1 | 9-11 | 11

Zhou Long (China) and Akira Matsui (Japan), in accordance with each of their country's theatrical traditions, investigate different ways of portraying character and emotion through the subtleties of movement and voice. What shows age, anger, love, sorrow? How are these emotions conveyed through props, costumes, use of energy? What are the differences and similarities between the two styles? How can others adapt these attributes in terms of their own traditions? Space is limited; reservations are strongly recommended.
