THE REVOLUTIONARY

Third year acting project directed by Elizabeth Dinkova.

Script by Fahed Altaji, Elizabeth Dinkova, and the company of acting and production students.

Welcome to Season X of The Revolutionary! Many passionate revolutionaries will enter the arena, but only one can come out on top. Rivalries will be formed, romances blossomed; blood, sweat, and tears all shed for the chance to win.

But there‚Äôs more than meets the eye. A reality under the reality. In this theater/film hybrid about oppression and rebellion, hope and despair, engagement and apathy, hierarchy and equality, exploitation and liberation, YOU get to decide the outcome. 

Live-streamed (with audience participation) on Nov 12 and 13th at 7:30 pm; available for on-demand viewing the following week

This project was created collaboratively through a devising process over a period of two months, including writing, improvisation, and experimentation on the theme of revolution. It was filmed with COVID safety procedures and restrictions in place.
