Visions by Pierre Megos
Thursday, April 5th at 12 PM and 8 PM
An actor, performer, dancer, writer, filmmaker, and director, Pierre Megos shows no limits to his artistic expression and ability. His initial interest in acting and performing arts, propelled him to complete a Masters degree in those subjects in Brussels in 2006. The Greek-heritage, Belgian-bred artist has continuously expanded his expertise. Now, this multidisciplinary artist relies on all of his talents in his artistic work, making a Megos performance remarkably unlike any other.
In Vision, Megos utilizes his passions for cinema, theater, and Hollywood to tell his vision of the future through performing arts. In this performance, Megos achieves two incredibly artistic feats: he is able to question and explore human nature through his projection of a future world while also showing the art of film, theater, and movement. Audiences will see the making of a film and its final product in real-time right before their eyes as Megos expresses his story through this dynamic medium. Vision is a truly unique performance that can only come from an artist such as Megos.

Dom Juan with Sophie Paul Mortimer
Monday, March 11th at 7:00 PM
A sword in hand, the actress steps in for her closing bow. She has just performed alone - or with a whole company - Molière's Dom Juan. On the stage, only one chair remains. Suddenly an idea dawns on her: “What if I performed the entire play again by myself?” Spectators are thus led into the reality of a re-presentation, when the actress re-tells the play within a given theatrical space and time. Sophie is both the narrator and the actress of the show. Her desire is to manifest the relationships among the human being, the social order, and the divine. The writing of Molière still allows for dreaming and learning, while enjoying the sheer pleasure of theater.
