KU Theatre

KU Confidential

an original devised piece created by Henry Bial and KU theatre students

Directed by Henry Bial
Scenic, Lighting and Costume Design by Tammy Keiser

A collectively created production that breaks the norms of traditional theatre on many levels, this production features a company of student performers working collaboratively to turn the everyday incidents and experiences of their lives into a theatre event that speaks directly and immediately to the KU student experience. Devised theatre begins not with a text, but with the performers themselves. By exploring their talents, lives, and desires through experiments in word, sound and image, a play is created that reflects a collective, multifocal artistic vision. Thinking, writing, and acting together over an extended period of time, this project emphasizes imagination, invention, risk, and total commitment to the performance.
