Process Series- Rollover
April 16 @ 7:30 pm - April 17 @ 7:30 pm
The effects of climate change become personal in this play about a coastal family and community grappling with the aftermath of a devastating hurricane. FIRE grant recipients, Laura Moore and Kathryn Hunter-Williams (Department of Dramatic Arts Faculty) teamed up to create Rollover based on hard science and informed by documentary-style interviews. UNC alum Jules Odendahl-James, who will direct this reading, has also been a part of this dynamic team, serving as project dramaturg throughout the development process. Rollover is a deeply moving narrative that also aims to educate and inspire action.
Co-sponsored by the Department of Earth, Marine and Environmental Sciences, the Institute for Marine Science, and the Institute for the Environment.
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.
