LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Bucknell University Department of Theatre and Dance will present "shading silhouettes of smaller ones," on March 6, 7 and 8, at 8 p.m. in the Tustin Studio Theatre.
The original ensemble piece by Bucknell senior Bianca Roman combines all mediums of expression to create a powerful theater experience.
"Audience members are invited to connect with characters in a world where playgrounds are the graveyards of memory," said Roman, a theater major and dance minor.
"Through an imaginative combination of movement and the spoken word, this production (with adult themes and language) explores the reality of adulthood in modern culture, and presents, to both audience and ensemble, an emotional journey through memory and childhood," she said.
Roman is responsible for every word, movement and scenic decision as well as the direction of her cast. "It's the first time, during my Bucknell career, for such a mainstage production here, and I'm honored to be given the opportunity," she said.
The production includes costume design by Bucknell senior Emily Riggins.
Tickets are $8, $6 for senior citizens, and available in advance through the Bucknell box office or by phone at 570-577-1000. Tickets also are available in person an hour before each performance.
