Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, Saratoga Springs, NY, United States



Event Description

Produced by Rebecca Rovezzi and Zoe Lesser
Directed by Michael San Roman
Dramaturgy by Megan Muratore
With the guidance of Professor Cermatori of the English Department

In light of the current political climate, colleges and theaters across the country have staged readings and productions of Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, known as “The Rhinoceros Project”. Rhinoceros is the story of how the people of a small town turn into rhinoceroses. The play confronts themes of fascism, mob mentality, and paranoia. In the Sommers room, we are staging this reading with the intent of exploring these themes further, and how to cope with and resist them. Following the reading, we will discuss the relevance of the play in the present, and what we can do to proceed with our rapidly changing government.
