"The School of Visual and Performing Arts is dedicated to the principle that our wide variety of programs is central to a liberal college education and essential in preparing students to meet the challenges of life and society. Furthermore, our faculty and staff believe that the arts are central to the development of creative and critical thinking, they fulfill an important role in the lifelong learning of individuals, and they provide cultural awareness that strengthens our community..."

An Adaptation of the Odyssey
Separated from his mother, a young refugee called Anon journeys through the United States, encountering a wide variety of people - some kind, some dangerous and cruel - as he searches for his family and home. From a sinister one-eyed butcher to beguiling barflies to a sweatshop, Anon must navigate through a chaotic, ever-changing landscape in this entrancing adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey.
This production will be produced fully online in a networked environment using greenscreened, edited performances created through technologic, telematic constructions that question where the body ends, and how we communicate narratives across media through a cyberspatial environment.
Students will use digital tools such as Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, and after Effects to create this multi-media performance.
Auditions will take place in Canvas September 1- September 4
For more information about auditions email Dr. Sheila Malone firstname.lastname@example.org
