Theatre work presented at Prague Quadrennial performs at CMU

Colorado Mesa University's Department of Theatre Arts will present a unique theatrical experience August 23-25. CMU theatre professor and scenic designer Matthew Schlief created a site-specific work titled Morning, Noon, Evening, Night and presented it at this summer's Prague Quadrennial, an international theatre festival.

Morning, Noon, Evening, Night considers how each time of day precipitates a drastically different perception of the environment, its aural world and our perceived essence of the moment. The title of the piece speaks to the times of day that the audience experiences during the performance: 6am, 12pm, 6pm and 12am. Audience members may choose which time of day they wish to see the performance. They are then privy to the inner thoughts of actor, who does not speak. Rather, her thoughts and a sound-scape will be projected into bone conduction headphones worn by the audience members. 

Audience members wishing to view this performance should gather in the Moss Performing Arts lobby before the start time of the performance. They will be guided outdoors to experience the production. A $5 donation will be collected at the door.
