Performed by the Brown Trinity MFA class of 2015 at the Pell Chaffee Performance Center in November, 2013. After its run at Trinity, it toured to arts centers and high schools across Rhode Island. The show was produced in rep with Much Ado about Nothing, directed by my classmate Flordelino Lagundino.
We shared a unit set designed to be a launching pad for storytelling based on physicalization, characterization, and activation of objects, in many ways similar to how we understand these texts were originally performed at the Globe in Early Modern England. The production was designed by the company, with Costumes by Whitney White (Maria), Original Music by Andrew Polec (Feste), Fight Choreography by Ian McNeely (Sir Toby) and Sophie Netanel (Viola), and Stage Management by Sammi Haskell.
“Thanks so much for bringing “Twelfth Night” to the Sandywoods Center for the Arts (SCA) in Tiverton this afternoon. It was really a fantastic production... Dan and the actors made such creative use of the SCA space, and integrated it into the performance – using the windows and doors to great effect, and incorporating our hurdy-gurdy and piano – brilliant!” – Russ Smith, Sandywood Center for the Arts, Tiverton RI
“OMG, OMG. Twelfth Night was AMAZING! Our students LOVED it! I LOVED it. Wow!” – Teacher at Classical High School, Providence RI
