Through physical storytelling, Ghosts of Troy crystallizes moments of story as the cast imagines the warrior Odysseus explaining to his son what it means to go to war. The primary focus is on physical manifestations of the actors, who have rigorously trained since last summer to perfect their craft. This visual experience for the audience allows for a deeper connection to the stage, celebrating the imagination of both actors and audience to complete the story. The style fuses dance, theatre, mime, improvisation, music, drumming, and visual artistic elements. The direction team includes Professors Kate Amory and Celena Sky April, with Jesse Mangan, ’11, who earned a Summer Artistic Development Grant from the Center for the Arts last year to study with PUSH Physical Theatre in New York.
