Behind the Scenes: Beckett in the City

Friday, 3 August 2018, 12 – 1pm

Behind the Scenes: Beckett in the City

This year's "Behind the Scenes" event is a conversation with the artist-scholar Sarah Jane Scaife, director of Company SJ, about her acclaimed multi-year project Beckett in the City, which includes outdoor stagings of Samuel Beckett's plays Act Without Words II with Rough for Theatre I (2009-present), the short prose piece Fizzles (2014), and the series The Women Speak (2015-present, including Not I, Footfalls, Rockaby, and Come and Go). Exploring the motivations and process underlying these works, this conversation will reveal how Company SJ fuses research and performance to create an active artistic engagement between the two, and how Scaife's vision of Beckett brings him to life for twenty-first century Irish and international audiences.

The conversation will be moderated by Nicholas Johnson.
