These students were chosen by faculty to participate in this semester’s event, and, while they are only a handful of the excellent possibilities the faculty had to choose from, they will be providing samplings of their work in a celebration of the best of creative writing at UTD.

This event will present an acting/theatre workshop of scenes from Complicite’s "A Disappearing Number." This play examines the meaning of infinity through the lives of Indian mathematical prodigy Ramanujan and London mathematician G.H. Hardy. Parallel to that story, Al and Ruth are a couple to attempt to create their own kind of infinity: a baby. This piece culminates our exploration of physical and vocal theatre work through numerous voiceovers, ensemble work, and attention to the actor’s physical vessel for performance.
