Workshop with AT BUFFALO Musical Theatre Creative Team April 1

Posted by Tim on March 30, 2016 in Academic Presentations, Academics, Community Announcements, Event, Networking, Workshops

Workshop with AT BUFFALO musical theatre creative team!

Friday, April 1

10am-1pm

Alumni Arena 190/188

The Department of Theatre & Dance is happy to announce a workshop with the creative team of the new musical AT BUFFALO.  UB student actors, directors, playwrights, and dramaturges (as well as students interested in staging race and American history) will join the AT BUFFALO creative team on Friday, April 1st to workshop and perform select scenes and songs from this exciting new musical.

Conceived by Amma Y. Ghartey-Tagoe Kootin and Joshua Williams, AT BUFFALO draws on descriptions, newspaper articles, photographs and film clips from the Pan-American exposition in Buffalo in 1901—in which exhibits like “Darkest Africa,” “Old Plantation,” and “The American Negro Exhibit” presented unique, and often conflicting, visions of blackness in America at the turn of the twentieth century. The musical brings a historical archive to life by performing it virtually verbatim, shedding light on the darkest corners of our history and illuminating the silences in the archive by filling them with words, movement, and song.  Join us as the creative team discusses their specific artistic viewpoints (e.g. director, writer, producer, composer, etc.) and shares strategies for crafting dramatic work from archival sources.

Exercises will include:

CREATING ORIGINAL SONGS out of archival material (student musicians should feel free to bring their instruments)

STRATEGIES FOR DIRECTING PERFORMANCE in order to unearth multiple interpretations of archival material, including newspaper accounts and photographs

 * DEVELOPING A CHARACTER from conflicting archival accounts

  * EMBODYING/RE-ENACTING HISTORICAL PERSONALITIES based on the representation of film, photographs, and other media

Spaces are limited; if you’d like to attend, please email Dr. Lindsay Brandon Hunter (lhunter@buffalo.edu) using the subject line “AT BUFFALO” to communicate your interest and learn more about the workshop. To learn more about AT BUFFALO and its creative team, visit www.atbuffalomusical.com.

These events are offered as part of a residency sponsored by UB’s  Research Workshop on Performance, as well as the Gender Institute, the Humanities Institute, the Julian Park Chair, the Techne Institute for Arts and Emerging Technologies, the Undergraduate Academies, and the departments of English, History, Media Study, Romance Languages & Literatures, Theatre & Dance, and Transnational Studies.
