Could You Please Look into the Camera?
by Trinity University
Mar. 17 - Feb. 25
Based on interviews with young Syrians detained by the Assad regime during the civil uprisings of 2011, COULD YOU PLEASE LOOK INTO THE CAMERA? explores the relationship between Nura, a filmmaker, and Zayd, Karim, and Farah, three young protestors recollecting their arrests and detentions. As a Theatre for Social Change piece, COULD YOU PLEASE LOOK INTO THE CAMERA? poses some critical questions: What is the relationship between art and technology? Can theatre stimulate political and social change? How can art provide the tools for action to empower individuals oppressed because of their race, gender, class, religion, ideology, and sexual orientation? How can performance serve to raise our consciousness against violence and war? With this production, Trinity Theatre continues to build a platform for change around difficult dialogues.
Directed by Prof. Roberto Prestigiacomo. Scenic design is by Martha Penaranda, Costumes by Kellie Grengs, and Lighting by Andrew Lopez.
