UNCSA Fall Dance Concert, Behind the Scenes With Mary Dalton, Typography, and She Loves Me
Renowned typographer Robert Bringhurst is also a linguist, translator, cultural historian, and one of Canada’s most revered poets. His poetry has been described as “rare but not rarified”, and in his landmark book The Elements of Typographic Style, he’s been said to “conjure poetry out of the smallest detail, from the humble hyphen to the nuances of serifs”. Robert recently lectured in Hanes Gallery on the WFU campus as part of the gallery’s ongoing exhibition Letterforming. His lecture was titled The Biology of Symbols: How Pictures Became Letters that Became Text and are Sometimes Becoming Pictures Again. Prior to his lecture, Robert spoke with David Ford by phone from his home in British Columbia.
GT Upchurch and the Production of She Loves Me
Wake Forest University and University of NC School of the Arts alumna GT Upchurch may have just graduated from UNCSA’s School of Drama in 2005, but she’s already on lots of people’s radar. GT has directed several Off-Broadway productions, including last year’s Harper Regan by Simon Stephens which received a Top Ten Shows of 2012 nod from the New York Times. The Times also profiled her in February’s article “Staging a Sisterhood,” about the rise of women directors in New York. Recently GT’s been sharing her talents with UNCSA 4th year senior drama students during rehearsals for Joe Masteroff’s romantic comedy She Loves Me.
She Loves Me opens on Wednesday, November 20th and will run through the 24th with evening shows at 7:30 PM and a Sunday matinee at 2:00 PM in The Gerald Freedman Theatre, Performance Place on the UNCSA campus.
