This Week’s TOP 5 Events

(Ordered by Date)

Fernando Arrabal: SLC Theatre Colloquium Guest Artist Series

When: Tuesday November 12th 2pm – ?

Where: Heimbold Donnelly Film Theatre

If you are a film or theatre student, or simply boast an interest in absurdist art, stop by the Donnelly Theatre in Heimbold tomorrow afternoon to hear legendary artist Fernando Arrabal speak his mind:

“Fernando Arrabal is a Spanish-French-Absurdist playwright, novelist poet, and filmmaker whose early plays brought him to the attention of the French avant-garde. Arguably Arrabal’s most important play of this early period is Automobile Graveyard, a parody of the Christ story. The characters in his plays are frequently childlike but seldom innocent, they are prostitutes, murderers, and torturers. After the mid-1960’s, his plays evolved into what he termed “Théâtre Panique” (Panic Theater). In 1990 he was elected Transcendent Satrap of the Collège de Pataphysique. The New York Times theatre critique Mel Gussow has called Arrabal (along with Beckett and Ionesco) one of the ‘three avatars of modernism.”
