"Unstable Connection" directed by Margo Hall

Unstable Connection

Directed by Margo Hall

November 6 – December 18, 2020

Unstable Connection is a devised performance project that explores what it means to be a student in 2020.

Drawing on personal experiences and "moment work," students created this collection of visceral performance pieces in response to their most pressing concerns: the coronavirus pandemic, racism and national discord, and the turbulent transition to remote learning (and living).

“This is the perfect time to create a devised performance. No play exists that can describe the current student experience. No one can do that better than the students themselves.”  — Margo Hall, Director
