Live-Stream Performance - Darkside: A Virtual Multimedia Experience
“Darkside” written by Tom Stoppard and directed by Kathleen McKinley.
The production, which was filmed in the John Wright Theatre in conjunction with the Department of Media, Communications, and Journalism, will stream online November 6 – 14, 2020.
"Darkside" is an abstract and compelling drama which follows Emily, a philosophy student, through a series of thought experiments, which are vividly brought to life. The play also ranges over a series of grand themes, which are both thought provoking and laced with Stoppard’s characteristic wit and humor.
The production marks the Department of Theatre and Dance’s first venture into virtual programming due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The department has joined forces with the Department of Media, Communications, and Journalism, and more specifically Professor Candace Egan, to make this project a reality.
“We have the opportunity of showing everyone a way of coming together to make theatre,” says Professor Kathleen McKinley. “In a way, we’re all pioneers. You have to take that really seriously. We’re going to show it can work. it’s a really big responsibility, but it’s one that all of us chose.”
The production was rehearsed and filmed following strict Federal, State, and University protocols to ensure a safe, clean, and socially-distant production environment.
The cast includes David Boutros, Nicolas Cherry, Joshua Clark, Reese Jade Herron, Krishan Joshi, Teya Juarez, Emily King, Andrew Mickelson, Tyler Murphy, R.L. Preheim, Julia Prieto, Anthony teNyenhuis, and Andrew Trevino.
