GALLERY: Fusion Theatre Company presents "Life X 3"

Fusion Theatre Company production mixes up life 3 times

 Oscar Wilde famously said, “Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.” Yet, “Life x 3,” the latest show to be put on by the Fusion Theatre Company in Albuquerque, takes inspiration from the nature of the universe itself, according to Jacqueline Reid, the director of Fusion’s expansive production of the show. Written by Yasmina Reza, “Life x 3” presents the same raucous dinner party from three different possible universes, which the press release describes as “a time/space continuum of repetition, redundancy, and revelation within the most intimate of relationships and their elemental ties to the universe.”

UNM costume designers fashion their visions for the stage

  It takes a lot of people to stage a production. Many, such as costume designers, remain behind the scenes even as their creations draw audience attention center stage, according to three costume designers at the University of New Mexico who want to educate audiences about what goes into costume design. Because they work offstage, the general public makes certain assumptions about what happens in costume shops, according to Emma Harrison, a student at UNM majoring in design and technology for performance with a concentration in costumes.

GALLERY: Monstro/us Preview

Dance concert ‘Monstro/us’ explores the monstrous

  As artists have long known, beauty can be found as readily in a study of the grotesque as in the sublime. “Monstro/us,” the 2022-2023 University of New Mexico faculty dance concert, demonstrates this with four original dance compositions that examine the horrors of war and the darker side of the human psyche. Playing for six performances from Feb. 24 through March 4 in the Rodey Theatre, “Monstro/us” consists of two flamenco and two contemporary pieces in an alternating repertoire. A production of the Department of Theatre and Dance, “Monstro/us” features choreography from both resident and guest faculty and performances by students in the UNM dance program.

GALLERY: English MFA WIP Reading

Grad students share their stories at ‘Works-in-Progress’ reading series

  The University of New Mexico’s creative writing program hosted its first “Works-in-Progress” reading of 2023 on Friday, Feb. 24 at Tortuga Gallery from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Approximately 50 students, faculty and community members attended the reading that featured three master’s of fine arts students and one English faculty member: professor Dan Mueller. As the name implies, the reading series offers writers a chance to share their works in the process of being developed and revised, according to Mueller.  “The purpose of the series is really to create community. It’s the most popular reading series that is associated with UNM’s MFA program, and it always has been. Graduate students, undergraduate students, and faculty members all really come together to share their work. I think it is one of the great things our program has going for it,” Mueller said.
