Everyman (2015)


Technologies and techniques

If a modern day Everyman is to relate to its audience in ways that echo the relationships of medieval playing, it must be self-conscious about the elements of its construction and incorporate available technologies into its play. These articles examine how music, costume, social media, and film build up layered meanings for our performance through thoughtful and creative approaches to some of the play’s key themes and issues.

Translation is always an interpretation, on multiple levels; the articles below explore how various kinds of translation shaped character, staging, and action in our production of Everyman.
