The Studio Series presents a new original devised physical theatre piece featuring Wolfe Bowart. Bowart and the BA theatre arts students began collaboration and rehearsal at the start of the Spring semester to develop this new work. The ensemble, with guidance from Bowart, works together to determine a central topic, does research, and uses contemporary devising practices to turn their research into a fresh theatrical experience for audiences. For this particular theatrical piece, the focus is physical theatre. The performance piece evolves throughout the rehearsal process allowing students to learn from Bowart and incorporate their newly learned skills into a truly creative and unique performance.
Physical theatre playwright and performer Wolfe Bowart is devoted to creating and presenting theatre productions that engage cross-generational audiences in theatrical experiences that evoke thought, wonder and laughter. Over the past 15 years, Bowart has been invited to tour his original works The Shneedles, LaLaLuna, Letter’s End and The Man the Sea Saw to some 20 countries. Bowart’s latest production Cloud Soup will have an encore performance in Tucson on April 28 and tour Australia in the Fall. Visit https://www.spoontree.com/ for details.
Alongside his performance work, Bowart is an educator, artist-in-residence and mentor to students aged 4 to 74. Over the past twenty-five years, he has taught in the US, Europe, the UK, Australia and Mexico in association with such organizations as The Los Angeles Music Center, Wolf Trap ArtStart, The South Coast Repertory Theater, The Playwrights Project, The Virginia Avenue Project and Australia’s National Institute of Circus Arts.
