Bare Bones Beowulf

Written by Joe Ulrich, Arts & Culture Desk and witf Host | Sep 12, 2012 8:23 AM

Beowulf.jpgThe Gamut Classic Theater's Stage Door Series is working on a production of the epic poem Beowulf, but it's not your typical kind of performance. Instead of using large sets and elaborate props and costumes, it's the actors themselves that become things like a lake, trees or huge monsters. Director David Ramon Zayas says, "The concept we're using is that the poet character is sharing the story with the audience and the other actors are sort of the poet's tools."

 

The Stage Door Series' performance of Beowulf will take place Septmeber 14th and 15th and the 21st and 22nd. For more information visit http://www.gamutplays.org/popcorn/stage-door-series
