Episode 006 features an interview with Richard Stockton Rand, actor, director, choreographer, writer, and Professor and Coordinator of Undergraduate Theatre Studies in the Department of Theatre at Purdue University. Rich is a dedicated theatre professional wearing many hats, and his thoughts on the theatrical life are nothing short of riveting. You can find Rich’s webpage here.
And here is a link to Rich’s work as a Mask Teacher:
I mentioned an article I recently found on the blog Hyperallergic concerning an exhibition titled Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed currently at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The exhibition serves to illustrate how, over time, the Norwegian painter moved away from observational painting toward something more symbolic and emotional.. You can find the story here.
Stirring examples of work in the exhibit can be seen on the SFMOMA website, here.
This week's "Look Ups":
Rich mentioned a video of himself performing the PLASTIQUE DISCIPLINE. It is compelling and even emotional to watch him put himself through the exercise. You can find it here:
He also talked about two clips of Bruce Springsteen performing his own song, “The River,” once from the early 1980’s and once more recently. The change in the performer and the maturation of the performance are remarkable. You can find these links here:
