March 5, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
One event on March 6, 2020 at 7:30 pm
UNC students under the direction of Marc Callahan
March 5 @ 3:30pm & March 6 @ 7:30pm – Moeser Auditorium
A reimagining of Meredith Monk’s opera, Atlas. Music professor, Marc Callahan, guides his MUSC 212 students to devise a new work inspired by Monk’s tonal landscape. Together with Tarish Pipkins and Susan Harbage Page, ATLAS uses story-telling, puppetry, and scene work to tell the story of a boy and his dog crossing the southern border into the United States. This student piece will coincide with Meredith Monk’s visit to Chapel Hill for the Carolina Performing Arts season.
Co-sponsored by Arts Everywhere.
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. 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 partner-ships with PlayMakers Repertory Co, (Making Tracks series), Dramatic Art (Theatrical Translation Festival), Carolina Performing Arts (As One and Toshi Reagon), and Arts Everywhere (19th Amendment Project). Along with the College of Arts and Sciences and sponsoring departments from Art, English and Comparative Literature, and American Studies, we are working to develop new works that underscore the connections among the arts, humanities, and the sciences.
