The Devised Theatre Showcase is the final project presented by UFV Theatre’s fourth-year Devised Theatre class and is a chance for students to apply everything they have learned in the course. Audiences can expect a brand-new production devised by students, with performances on April 27 and 28, 2023.
This year’s production, Sound of Mind, is a devised showcase with a series of vignettes about our struggles with communication. Students examine the mental, physical, and emotional obstacles surrounding communication, and how some of these communication differences may affect people’s abilities to fit into a ‘typical world’.
Presented by Sarah Byers, Brooklyn Doornbos, Jenn Romano, Doris Huang, and Sara Oliva Morales. THEA 452 Devised Theatre is taught by UFV associate professor Parjad Sharifi, with support from wardrobe manager Heather Robertson, technical director Jared Raschke, and production manager Giuseppe Condello.
