WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In An Alternate Approach: An Experiment in Perspective, teams of performers, designers, and directors turn the typical production process upside-down and inside-out as they approach the popular American short story "The Yellow Wall-Paper," by Charlotte Perkins Stetson Gilman. Each approach brings unique points of view to the story in one night of unforgettable exploration, emotion, location and perspective.
"The Yellow Wall-Paper," while generally considered a feminist classic, speaks to all creative minds and lost souls. The original story is a first-person narrative of a young wife, mother and artist's struggle as she is subjected to a three-month "rest cure" to treat her depression. But why stop there? What's behind the wallpaper? Performances will begin in the Murphy-Dunn Theatre, then the audience will be asked to move from space to space.
