A Conversation with Artists, moderated by Bonnie Marranca

A conversation bringing together several artists who rewrite, stage, or otherwise reinterpret classic plays. The evening will examine the return to the classics in America and abroad as well as the relationship between the avant-garde and classics. Both American culture and European culture will be discussed as definers of a “canon” and interpreter of classical plays. The panel will include John Jesurun, Marianne Weems, Lee Breuer, and others.

Bonnie Marranca is co-founder/Editor of the arts publishing house PAJ and continues to edit PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art, now in its twenty-eighth year. She is also the author of two collections of essays, Ecologies of Theatre and Theatrewritings, and has edited several anthologies, including Conversations on Art and Performance, Interculturalism and Performance, Plays for the End of the Century, and The Theatre of Images. She is a Guggenheim Fellow, Fulbright Senior Scholar, and winner of the George Jean Nathan Award for Dramatic Criticism. She has taught and lectured in numerous American and European universities, most recently at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona.
