Master Class with Peter Ksander | Sat Jan 11 | 12 – 2pm
On the Boards Mainstage Lobby | FREE!

Maybe we don’t paint anymore?
This Master Class is a lecture / conversation with scenographer Peter Ksander on what Theater is in the 21st century and how we as artists can wield it as a tool. Join Ksander in a conversation (with opinions) on the nature of Theater (what’s it good for? what’s it good at?), Genre Shift, Scenography, Inertial Frames, and Brecht’s Car Crash metaphor. Open to all artists looking to exchange ideas about Theater’s current state; how it could be further defined and function in our increasingly mediated lives.

Peter Ksander is a scenographer whose work has been presented at: The National Theater of Hungary, Maison des Arts de Creteil, The Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Public Theater, The Chocolate Factory, The Walker Art Center, Arts at St. Ann’s, La Mama ETC. PS122, HERE Arts Center, The Ontological-Hysteric Theater, The ICA (Boston), Theater for a New Audience, The California Institute of the Arts, The TBA Festival, and Under the Radar.  In 2005 Peter was a recipient of the NEA/TCG Career Development Program and in 2008 he won an Obie award for the scenic design of Untitled Mars (this title may change).
