Thursday, April 23
Graduate Center CUNY
All Day Panel Discussions + 7:00pm Keynote
DTSA GC CUNY Student Conference

FREE + Open to public. First come, first served

Theatre and performance constantly negotiate between seen and unseen labor. Certain kinds of labor disappear, both socially and theatrically, while others are put on display. Organized by students of the Ph.D. Program in Theatre and Performance, “Net-Works: Mapping Labor in Theatre and Performance” is a conference that seeks to uncover the collaborative and solitary labor necessitated by creative and performative spaces; the labor of working in a globally connected world; and the labor of working at the intersections of the material, the human, and the ephemeral.

Through panel discussions held throughout the day and an evening keynote speech open to the public, the conference aims to discuss and exchange interrogative approaches to the study of labor along with its visible and invisible networks in theatre and performance.

Opening Remarks by: David Savran.
Keynote by: Shannon Jackson.
Organized by: Taylor Culbert, Ruijiao Dong, Mayurakshi Sen,
and Alex Viteri Arturo.

Net-Works is produced with the support of the Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association (DTSA); The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center; The Ph.D. Program in Theatre and Performance; the Sidney E. Cohn, Vera Mowry Roberts Chair, and the Lucille Lortel Chairs.

won a lifetime Obie and was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame in 2018.
Kennedy is noted for the use of surrealism in her plays, which are often openly
structured and symbolic, drawing on mythical, historical, and imaginary figures to
depict and explore the African-American experience. In 2006, Kennedy received
the PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater Award as a Master
American Dramatist.

Michael Kahn is an American theatre director and drama educator. He has,
since 1986, been the Artistic Director of the Shakespeare Theatre Company in
Washington, D.C. He held the position of Richard Rodgers Director of the Drama
Division of the Juilliard School from 1992 to 2006. After beginning his career
Off-Off-Broadway in 1964, Kahn won acclaim for Broadway productions like The
Royal Family (1975) and Show Boat (1983). He joined the Juilliard School’s faculty
in 1968, becoming the head of its drama school. During his long tenure as artistic
director of the Shakespeare Theatre Company, in Washington DC. Kahn has
overseen its growth, including initiating its Free For All productions. He has also
acted as artistic director for several other companies, continued to direct regional
theatre and opera, and received various awards and honors.

Join us for an evening with French researcher and theatre artist Sylvaine Guyot to examine the resonance of Jean Racine’s tragedies with his time and ours. Written in the age of absolutism Racine’s plays crystalize alternative, sometimes critical, narratives of power that reveal the political possibilities inherent in theatre. Guyot will interweave excerpt readings and historical commentary with visual and aural material—tracing and animating the figure of the king as it appears on the tragic stage.

Guyot’s lecture-performance serves as a political laboratory, examining the role of theatre and staged bodies in relation—and tension—with state power. The lecture-performance was first presented in 2019 at the Théâtre National de Bretagne in Rennes, France, commissioned by Patrick Boucheron.

Sylvaine Guyot is Professor of French Literature at Harvard University, where she is the founding director of theatre company La Troupe and the Chair for Theater, Dance & Media. Guyot has directed plays by Corneille, Racine, Ionesco, Camus, Heiner Müller, Jean-Luc Lagarce, and Wajdi Mouawad in France and the United States.

8:00pm Talk with Translator/Editor Amin Erfani

Bernard-Marie Koltès: Seven Plays is a collection of brand new American translations of major plays by the world-renowned French playwright—along with a critical introduction by translator/editor Amin Erfani; forthcoming with Martin E. Segal Theatre Center Publications.

4:00pm The Night Just Before the Forests
In a profusion of passionate and desperate words, this one sentence hour-long monologue stages the voice of a beggar who stops you in the street, under the rain, asking for a cigarette, money, or a beer, denouncing his living conditions as an outcast, telling stories of his encounters with other outcasts, and his incessant search for a girl named Mama.

5:30pm Tabataba
In this very short play Koltès stages a brother and a sister stuck in the courtyard of their house, fighting over the social expectations imposed upon them, finding solace in their relationship and in the brother’s obsession with a broken-down Harley Davidson motorcycle.

6:30pm In the Solitude of Cotton Fields
In this most celebrated Koltès masterpiece, a Dealer stops a Client in the street, at the
dark hour of twilight, peddling hidden merchandise which the Dealer keeps secret. The Client, in return, refuses to reveal why he has come here, at this hour, and what he truly desires from the Dealer.
