The Sonnets Project
by University of Texas Theatre & Dance
Nov. 16 - Nov. 18, 2016
“The Sonnets Project” is an immersive, site-specific storytelling experience that invites audiences to consider, “If you had a chance to make a statement as you crossed over into the next life, what would you say?” Infused with music, dance, physical theater, and tons of love, “Sonnets” takes as its springboard the life of Wendy Johnson, a character from Jose Rivera’s play, "Sonnets for an Old Century." This is a performance about what we hold on to, and what we are able to leave behind, in an imagined waiting room between this life and the next. Join us in the Winship Atrium, and we'll take you to the secret location where the performance will take place!
