The Epic Project: Bring in the Masks!

The Project:

The Epic Project  (working title) is a devised work of theatre developed over three years by MFA actors and design/technology students, as well as UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance composition students.  This is an absolute first for UMKC theatre and an important development in the training of future collaborative and generative artists. The project will culminate in a full production on the Spencer Stage in the spring of 2016.

Inspired by the study of mythology by Joseph Campbell, as well as theatre devisers such as Ariane Mnouchkine, Jacques Lecoq, Peter Brook and Complicite, the ensemble explores contemporary and classic tales, weaving an EPIC story of our time.

We are currently in the second year of the project and are preparing for a workshop performance in Studio 116 in March of 2015.

What your support will do:

A major goal of the Epic Project is to acquire new, specialized skills both in performance and design. In February, 2015, we will be bringing in mask maker, director, teacher and puppeteer, Tony Fuemmeler for a week-long residency.  During this time the performers will each create a mask, which will contribute to our story and appear in our Studio 116 experience.

Your donation will go toward materials as well as Mr. Fuemmeler's fee, travel, transportation and lodging.

One more way you can help:

If there is friend or family member you think might be interested in this exciting process, please share this project with them. UMKC Theatre and The Epic Project team are grateful for the generous support of donors committed to the research and development of new work, and the training of future theatre artists.
