8PM and 10PM, A.D. White House
Anya Gibian, BS '12 candidate in International Labor Relations and Theatre Arts, will present a theatrical installation of theatre, music, dance and set design. The piece combines the life of Cornell's first President and his family with Shakespeare's Henry IV and examines women's often-invisible role in history. Six actors (Anya Gibian, Juliana Kleist-Mendez, James Miller, Nick Shuhan, James Miller and Ilana Gilovich) will portray historical figures who live in (or visited) the A.D. White House and will throughout the course of the production, transform into characters from Shakespeare's play, melding past and present, fact and fiction, to create a world for the audience to explore.
