    CSB|SJU Theater Department's Production of UBU

    CSB|SJU Theater Department's Production of UBU

    College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University Theater Department
    October 16-October 25, 2014

    The College of Saint Benedict Theater Department is ecstatic to announce the first production of the year, Ubu. A modern interpretation of Alfred Jarry’s absurdist classic Ubu Roi, translated by Barbra Wright. Directed by Jon Ferguson of Theatre Forever. Beginning October 16 in the Colman Black Box Theater located in the Benedictine Arts Center (BAC) on the Saint Benedict campus.

    Welcome to Ubu, a dirty and rotten, absurdist adventure, of terrible proportions. Come along as Pa Ubu (and his band of misfits) attempts to dominate and destroy all, to become king. Written by Alfred Jarry at the age of 14 in 1880’s France, Ubu Roi, which translates to King Ubu or King Turd, is an absurdist classic. Ubu is the manifestation of a terrible teacher Jarry particularly despised. Ubu is the telling of the misfortunes befallen on this hated teacher. Pulling inspiration from Shakespeare’s MacBeth and other historical events, Ubu is a manifestation of childhood imagination and humor.

    Cyrille Aimée

    CSB/SJU Fine Arts Series
    October 25, 2014

    Cyrille mastered the art of improvisation while studying at the conservatory of jazz at SUNY Purchase and was a finalist for the prestigious Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition in 2010. She performs regularly in the historic, iconic jazz clubs of NYC and tours the world to critical acclaim.

    St. Cloud State University- SCSU School of the Arts
    October 21-October 26, 2014

    Without a script or plot, and drawing heavily from actors' improvisation, this bold original project probes classical and contemporary representations of women: heroic, erotic, tragic, and mysterious. Using movement, mask, and clown techniques, this production promises an evening as provocative as it is hilarious.

    An original work.

    Directed by Vladimir Rovinsky
