Waiting for Godot-ZagLab/Terrain - June-September 2017
ZagLab, an experimental initiative from Gonzaga University, Gonzaga University Art Department, and Gonzaga University Dept. of Theatre & Dance in partnership with Terrain isenvisioned to pursue original interdisciplinary artistic collaborations, encourage artistic risk taking, and foster adventurous creative inquiry among and between students and faculty.
Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is an original, site-responsive production within an immersive ceramic installation. The installation will be located outdoors at the Washington Cracker Building art-space on West Pacific Ave. in Spokane, WA.
The audience will join the actors inside the sculptural environment for the production. The installation will be designed to degrade in response to the weather and will be open to the public from June 8 through September 10.
Beckett’s play humorously depicts the futility of action and inaction. Our two weekends of performances in June and September, marking the beginning and end of the installation period, will respond to the unpredictable nature of the installation and raise questions about our collective response to climate change.
Featuring director Charles M Pepiton, artists Mat Rude, J.J. McCracken, Courtney Smith, AbbeyPlankey, and actors Talena Laine Kelln, Elizabeth Spindler, Jaron Fuglie, Regina Carrere, and Owen Swanson.
The sustainability fair will feature organizations from our community including Spokane Riverkeeper, Fuse Environmental Action Team, and the City of Spokane's Environment & Sustainability Office at each performance in June and September.
