2007 - Goya en la Quinta del Sordo
November 8-11, 15-18 2007
The Gilbert C. Eastman Studio Theatre
Written by Willy Conley and Iosif Schneiderman
Directed by Willy Conley
When one loses the sense of hearing or sight, does humanity's truth become more clear and honest? The Spanish painter Francisco de Goya--one of the forefathers of the modern art movement--created his most forthright and provocative works after turning profoundly deaf in mid-career. Two Deaf visual theatre artists, Willy Conley and Iosif Schneiderman, revisit their nonverbal, visual-gestural play--sans sign language and spoken English--with a new cast of Gallaudet University students to further explore the map of Goya's psyche in search of his quinta del sordo.
