Building off of their virtual Hopkins Center residency in August 2020, David Cale, Dael Orlandersmith and Matthew Dean Marsh return to Dartmouth joined by director Robert Falls with You Don't Know the Lonely One. This non-narrative, multidisciplinary work draws influence from paintings and albums to create a collaborative portrait of aloneness in an ever-shifting world. You Don't Know the Lonely One uses monologues, poems, stories and songs to explore what it means to be alone.
The performance will be immediately followed by a 20 minute Q&A session with the artists.
About the New York Theatre Workshop Residency at Dartmouth
New York Theatre Workshop empowers visionary theater makers and brings their work to adventurous audiences through productions, artist workshops and educational programs. Every August, the company brings their work to Dartmouth for a three-week residency, developing and performing new works-in-progress by some of today's most innovative professional playwrights and directors. This summer marks the 30th year of this remarkable partnership; over those three decades, dozens of works have been workshopped and developed at Dartmouth including Rent, The Laramie Project, Quills, An Iliad and Hadestown, which was recently honored with eight Tony Awards.
