DRAM FYS 088: Ecology and Performance
Invites you to student works in progress
On the theme of Water in support of UNC’s pan-campus initiative “Water In Our World”
DATE: Tuesday December 3
TIME: 2:15-3:00 PM
LOCATION: Center for Dramatic Art, Room 102
A Soupy Situation: Plastics in the Ocean
Our focus is on the negative side effects that plastics in the ocean have on the environment and our health. Plastics photo-degrade in the ocean and can be hard to see. Our goal is to educate the public to stop allowing plastic waste in the ocean. We promote sustainable practices by encouraging the usage of less plastics and more reusable products:
Featuring: Thomas Alligood, Ezra Baeli-Wand, Jack Cordes, Anderson Tran, Lexi Valenti, and Cason Whitcomb
A Water Carol: Sustainable Consumption
In this updated version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, spectators learn to be conscious about water consumption, lest they end up like Scrooge Le’Douje, the representative model of an average wasteful American. In the performance, Scrooge is visited by a ghost who shows him what life would be like without water.
Featuring: Leslie Cao, Ladarius Davis, Jessica Fintak, Antonio Hernandez-Blanco, Zain Syed, and Colleen Watson
Fashion Flo-Ward: Consumerism and Water
Our performance targets the fashion industry to inspire companies to think about their productions choices. This industry is very destructive to society and the world, creating dreadful consequences for our water supply. By using various aspects of fashion, such as the assembly line, the runway, and a fashion company’s office, we are hoping to inspire the shopper to rethink their clothing and accessory choices.
Featuring: Erik Avellaneda, Holden Ehlinger, Chrissy Garwood, Taylor Howard, Lauren Ossler, and Annie Scheffer.
All performance projects are directed by Nilan Johnson and Karen O’Brien. For more information or to RSVP, contact Karen O’Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org.
