"I'm Fine." and "Ha"

The Department of Theater and Dance presents an evening of two senior honors performances. I'm Fine., created by Brandon Medina ’19, follows Calvin, a socially anxious young man who receives a visit from his Conscience. They take a mind-bending journey through his formative memories, seeing what made him who he is, and the human connections he made and lost. Throughout their journey, Calvin is pursued by antagonistic Muses – shape-shifting beings who wish for Calvin to distort himself into something other than who he is. Starring: Leah Folpe, Brandon Medina, Samuel Melcher and Chloe Wohlgemuth.

Ha, created by Matthew Holliday ’19, challenges us to think about how we truly feel. Rooting memory, emotion and physical histories in the body, Ha explores our needs, wants, fears and desires. One must laugh at the contradictory nature that defines how we construct memory and how we embody our past, both good and bad. Starring: Bridget Carmichael, Michael Gibson, Benin Gardener, Matthew Holliday, Genevieve Lucas-Narcisse, Andres Niño, Rachel Marchica, Kiara Mickens, Rebecca Schrader, and Leah Woodbridge.

Set Design by Maia Doerner, Costume Design by Lorelei Diets, Lighting Design by Sophina Flores, Sound Design by Micha Starr, Music Design by Alistair Edwards, MacKenzie Kugel and Cristóbal Silva.
