Alfred Ve Dvoře Theatre - Invitation: "25 participants of the three-week summer course devoted to abandoned practices and endangered uses have been engaged in research, performance, installation, and writing projects, with teachers Matthew Goulish, Lin Hixson, and Mark Jeffery, teaching assistant Daviel Shy and administrator Rana Siegel. This years visiting scholars were Laura Cull and John Mullarkey. You are invited to attend presentations on Wednesday, July 25th, devised in response to the form of the Chautauqua Assembly, a traveling rural adult education institution, the popularity of which peaked in the late 1800s. Sharing the theme of useful knowledge, the four presentations of 18 or 21 minutes in length each weave a series of strictly timed original responses to subjects such as “St Vitus Dance” and “Link Boy,” in alternating presentational modes of expert lecture, traveling exhibition, educational performance, and entertainment performance."
