2013 - 2014 UCSD Season
Playing this Spring
Wagner New Play Festival 2014 2014

WNPF 2014

April 15 - 26

This year, the plays range from the story of a gay soldier returning home and struggling to rekindle a strained relationship to the story of young zoo employees wrestling with romantic love and the meaning of life on the eve of a catastrophic storm. They take place in San Francisco’s rapidly evolving Tenderloin District, the middle of winter in the remote reaches of Vermont, and outer space somewhere in the 22nd Century. They ask questions ranging from how you reconcile your public persona with your private desires to whether it's possible to grow a mango tree in the middle of Vermont in the middle of winter.

homing / navigation absense

The latest production by Choreographer Yolande Snaith and her company IMAGOmoves. This new work seeks to explore the merge between embodied maps of personal territories, presense and absense of others in our living spaces and the open fields of shared, impersonal areas.

katie duck and guests:
traces of casualty / IF

May 10 – 11

Katie’s solo work embodies isolation, distress and disorientation in the figure of being homeless with an aim to reflect how our brains have been criminally rewired by media, politicians and the pursuit of opulence, so that we feel less in the face of casualty. Katie will be joined by Liam Clancy, Alicia Peterson Baskel, and Yolande Snaith for IF, a spontaneous group composition with potential objects.
