Tartuffe Talkback

Join us for a post-show talkback tonight (Friday, 25th Sep) at 10.30PM with Elise Morrison!

Monitoring Moliere: Surveillance, Comedy, and Tartuffe

Elise Morrison is a PhD candidate at Brown in Theatre Arts and Performance Studies. Her dissertation, “Through the Looking Glass: Feminist Strategies in Surveillance Art,” looks at artists whose work strategically employs technologies and techniques of surveillance to create performances and installations that pose new and different ways of interacting with and understanding apparatuses of surveillance. She has also performed several of her own surveillance art pieces on the public thoroughfares of New York, Providence and the INTERNET.
