About the Artists
In America, That Is To Say No Where is an original devised work inspired by the revolutionary 19th century play: Ubu Roi, that takes a provocative look at the turmoil created by a tyrannical political figure.
Director Melanie Stewart and writer Brian Grace-Duff collaborated with the 12-member cast of Rowan University students and alumni to develop this movement-driven theatre piece, a shocking and exaggerated look at a gluttonous and child-like dictator who comes to power and wreaks havoc. Influenced by Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi, this new production is satirical yet confrontational as it employs elements of the original play’s plot to explore the current political climate with a larger-than-life approach.”
Gunnar Montana transports us once again, this time downward into the dark depths of terror. Follow one man’s frightening descent into deranged madness and witness his unrelenting, visceral nightmare unfold. Graphic content.
Manifest Destiny is a multi-disciplinary theatrical concert of alt-electro and rock music written and performed by singer-songwriter and Tony Award honoree, Jesus G. The piece explores the juxtaposition of his Native American heritage, his devoutly Catholic upbringing, and his queer identity. Manifest Destiny is a celebration of the soul, from its trials to its triumphs.
