Richard Schechner has directed plays with leading professional actors in the United States, Taiwan, China, India, and the Republic of South Africa. His productions have won major awards such as the BITEF (Belgrade International Experimental Theatre Festival) Prize, two OBIEs (New York Off Broadway prize), and the Mondello Prize (Italy). Schechner is the founding director of The Performance Group and East Coast Artists. His directing — and his book Environmental Theater— have pioneered immersive theatre, site-specific performances, and audience participation. He has both radically reinterpreted and deconstructed canonical texts and worked closely with performers on devising productions worldwide.

This event is free and open to the public.
