Honors Showcase: 12 Ophelias


  • Lee Center for the Arts 901 12th Avenue Seattle, WA, 98122 United States (map)

Seattle University's Department of Art and Art History and Department of Performing Arts and Arts Leadership are proud to present exhibitions, performances, presentations by the year's honor students from both departments. These projects, which are selected by the faculty in both departments, demonstrate the high level of achievement by students earning departmental honors in the majors.

Emily will be in Ariana Chriest's project 12 Ophelias (a play with broken songs) by Caridad Svich. It is directed by Madison Kylie Spillman, with choreography by Ulyber Mangune. In the play, Shakespeare’s Ophelia rises up out of the water dreaming of Pop-Tarts and other sweet things. She finds herself in a neo-Elizabethan Appalachian setting where Gertrude runs a brothel, Hamlet is called a Rude Boy, and nothing is what it seems. In this mirrored world of word-scraps and cold sex, Ophelia cuts a new path for herself.
