Highlands University presents French playwright, actress and director Isabelle Kessler in a one-person theatrical performance Feb. 10 that gives the audience a chance to explore the active and artistic role they play as spectators.
“The Art of Being a Spectator” is a free public performance at 7 p.m. in the university’s Student Union Building Theatre at the northwest corner of National Avenue and 8th Street.
“There is nothing passive about being a spectator, and this performance essentially turns a mirror back to the audience,” Kessler said. “It asks viewers to examine their role as spectators at a personal and collective level. The show intends to start a conversation that asks audience members to think beyond “I like it/I do not like it” or “I agree/I disagree.”
