Join Lanesboro Arts resident artists Tatiana Pandiani & Jacinta Clusellas for a farewell discussion about their residency project NORA, a new documentary musical theatre piece inspired by Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” and the true stories of mothers & wives across the country, on Sunday, April 23rd at 11am in the Events Hall of the Commonweal Theatre. Provide feedback or hear first hand about the themes explored and the stories revealed during two weeks of community engagement that had Lanesboro area participants meeting regularly to read “A Doll’s House,” reflect on questions of gender roles, and share stories. This is a free event and no registration or ticket is required.
Lanesboro is the first stop in the development of NORA for the the pair of artists, both based in New York City and originally from Buenos Aires. Residency participants asked whether the narrative of Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House,” one of the most produced and translated dramatic texts, is as significant today as it was in its time, given global shifts in women’s rights and questions about gender. Tatiana and Jacinta’s goal was for participants to see themselves as creators and storytellers, while also presenting an opportunity to discuss questions regarding women’s lives in a specific geographic and historical context and frame a story that recounts a particular heritage and legacy. Their two week residency has three main components: reading and analyzing A Doll’s House with local collaborators, getting to know Lanesboro collaborators and their stories, and working with music (listening, performing and/or writing).
