VOXFEST returns!


Join us for our fifth consecutive year of VOXFEST! VoxFest is a festival for the development of innovative new projects initiated by Dartmouth alumni. Vox Theater will be in residence at Dartmouth July 1-8 collaborating on four new works-in-progress involving Dartmouth students, alumni and faculty.

All the events below are *FREE* and open to the public.

July 5 @ 7 pm at the BEMA: Vox Barter 

VoxFest's annual evening of artistic exchange.

July 7 @ 5pm, Bentley Theater: Live Feed 

Developed by Carol Brown '12, Max Hunter '13, Mia Jessup '12 and Jay Ben Markson '10.

In a near future where nearly everything we do is captured and analyzed by our devices, an algorithm has been developed to sort through the deluge of data and identify problem behavior. But the algorithm is managed by Content Moderators, who examine and tag everything the algorithm turns up. When the algorithm gets hung up on a non-problem video, the CMs break the rules to figure out what's going on.    This production includes strong language and theatrical violence.

July 7 @ 8 pm, Bentley Theater: Book Club 

Curated by Matthew Cohn '08, Olivia Gilliatt '08 and Deby Xiadani '15

An in-progress devised, collaborative theater event.

July 8 @ 4:30 pm, Bentley Theater: Trash

Written by Kate Mulley '05. Directed by Benita de Wit.

Dan Copper is a charming, handsome English teacher at a New England prep school. Sarah Grove is not one of his students. None of the girls he dates are. Trash is about young love, boarding school life, and making the same mistakes over and over again.

July 8 @ 7:30 pm, Bentley Theater: The Cure

Directed by Thom Pasculli  ’05 and co-created with the Walkabout ensemble

The Cure is an amalgam of material collected from stories about home, journeys to the underworld, and cities on fire.  Musical, muscular, irreverent, and full of wonder, The Cure responds to that moment when the ground beneath us shifts too quickly, and the world suddenly seems unrecognizable.  At that point what do we hold dear?  What do we choose to nurture?


Funding for this year’s Voxfest is provided by the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost, Vox Theater, the Alumni Relations Office and other donors.
