David Levine’s Performance Class Ends Autumn Term with Production of “Four Seminars”

ECLA Performance Class Ends Autumn TermFinding four rooms full of students discussing labour, acting, and ethics in Kazan’s “On the Waterfront” would not usually surprise a visitor to ECLA.  On Wednesday night, however, the students in the seminars were acting – speaking memorized lines originally said by other students and then transcribed into scripts.  Audience members circulated in and out of the rooms and observed the looped performances, which posed questions about the connections between academic endeavour, labour and acting.  The performance class is taught by David Levine.
