Process Series- Cascade
April 17, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
By Jim Grimsley, UNC Alum
Directed by Joseph Megel
Co Production with StreetSigns Center for Literature and Performance & Process Series
Acclaimed NC playwright and UNC alumni, Jim Grimsley, takes us to the not-so-distant future where the climate crisis has reached its ultimate conclusion. Society is breaking down, resources are scarce, and people are on the move.
Last season, we presented Cascade as a reading in-process. This season, we continue our partnership with StreetSigns to bring you the full production in two venues throughout the month of April.
About the Process Series
Dedicated to the development of new and significant works in the performing arts, The Process Series features professionally mounted, developmental presentations of new works in progress. The mission of the Series is to illuminate the ways in which artistic ideas take form, to examine the creative process, to offer audiences the opportunity to follow artists and performers as they explore and discover, and by so doing to enrich the development process for artists with the ultimate goal of better art and a closer relationship between artists and audiences. Immediately following each performance, we ask our audiences to join in the creative process, providing feedback critical to the development of the work as it moves forward. All performances are free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $10. The Series has supported over sixty
artist residencies since its inception, with many of the projects going on to significant future lives both nationally and internationally. The Process Series, housed in the Department of Communication, celebrates renewed partnerships with Dramatic Art, Carolina Performing Arts, and Institute for Arts and Humanities. Along with the College of Arts and Sciences and sponsoring departments from Art and Art History, English and Comparative Literature, Music, American Studies and Earth, Marine and Environmental Science, we are working to develop new works that underscore the connections among the arts, humanities, and the sciences.
