The Sixth Act Presents "Eco-Theatre: An Academic Workshop"

The Sixth Act is pleased to announce its upcoming event, “Eco-Theatre: An Academic Workshop,” on Thursday, October 8, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., in the Black Box Theater (Building 4). As usual, the workshop is free and open to the public, metered parking is available, and light refreshments will be served.

In collaboration with MCC’s Sustainability Group, this workshop will explore ideas surrounding sustainability as expressed on stage. The workshop will outline the history and competing definitions of eco-theatre; provide an overview of eco-theory and criticism, more broadly; feature discussion focusing on the specific application of eco-theory to performed scenes from Ibsen and Shakespeare; and present an overview of the new sustainability certificate offered at MCC. Please contact Maria Brandt at <> if you would like a pre-workshop curriculum packet.
