Friday & Saturday, 8:00 PM

Two people witness the same event, yet describe it differently. Sometimes you feel you’re being watched, but you don’t know by whom. Other times your eyes are wide open and yet you don’t truly see what’s in front of you. Visual and performance artist Laura Anderson Barbata’s multimedia work explores these phenomena: What do we see without our eyes? How do our eyes betray us? Travel to the Amazon Rainforest, meet The Ugliest Woman in the World, and set aside all your preconceived notions of beauty, if even just for a moment.

After six years in the United States Army and suffering post traumatic stress, Stephan Wolfert hopped off an Amtrak train deep in the mountain of Montana. He was far from home, close to the middle of nowhere, and without the first clue of what to do for the rest of his life. Until, as fate would have it, he stepped into a local theater and saw a production of William Shakespeare's Richard III

Twenty years later, using Shakespeare's timeless words, and a few of his own, Stephan leads us on an interactive journey to meet Shakespeare's soldiers in Cry Havoc!
