The Department of Theater and Dance Presents
Scenes from an Execution
By Howard Barker

What would drive a woman to paint the truth – especially when she was commissioned by the church and state to create a massive, glorified homage to the most important naval contest in human history? Perhaps it was the thousands upon thousands of Turkish Muslims, brutally slaughtered by the Holy Christian armada in only five hours. Perhaps it was something sordid and unspeakable from her personal life. Or maybe she just didn’t like having a bunch of powerful men telling her what to do. Whatever the reason, the good citizens of 16th century Venice had better brace themselves for a woman’s take on the realities of war.

Please join us for this powerful and bracing theatrical event. Tickets are available online at http://colby.edu/theaterdance, or at the door.
