In this physical theater piece Trustina Fafa Sabah recounts and explores her experiences in the States and how those experiences have affected her life and consciousness as a Ghanaian abroad and as an artist. Sabah uses movement, dance, music, projections, shadow puppetry and text to take her audience through her unique journey of surprises, lessons, homesickness, heartbreak, artistic discovery, growth and happiness. She invites her audience to remember and celebrate their own precious times both home and away, what they have cherished and lost. Sabah is collaborating with fellow MFA alumnae and theater artists Sarah Lloyd and Susan Stroupe in the creation of this project.



DRIFT (working title)

DRIFT is the final Thesis Production conceived by Deirdre McAllister, MFA in Theatre candidate at Towson University. The project will connect Towson students with individuals from the Man Alive Treatment Center to generate material inspired by elements of recovery. Through interviews, improvisation and collaborative writing exercises, the ensemble will empower each other to explore and celebrate new coping strategies and supportive artistic relationships. The script we create together will be performed in the basement of the center the weekend of March 26-29, 2015. For more information, visit:



The Hyacinth Girl

April 16, 17, and 18

A performance created and directed by Leah Englund

Marie does not clearly remember who she is. She's afraid that she is not a good person. The world around her is burned and barren, and she isn't sure if it's her fault. Prophets, soothsayers and gossips help her find her way. This fanciful journey is inspired by Rothko paintings and T.S. Elliot's the Wasteland.
