O’Connell and VPA Faculty Present Workshop on Devised Theater

January 31, 2014
By: WSU News

Visual and Performing Arts Assistant Professor Sam O’Connell, Ph.D., recently presented workshops with VPA Chair Adam Zahler, M.F.A., and VPA faculty Susan Johnson-Hood, Nathan Lee, and Angie Marks at the New England Theatre Conference and the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. The workshops highlight their collaborative work for Worcester State Theatre’s spring 2013 devised theater production of “War Children.”

In addition, O’Connell recently published a chapter included in the forthcoming collection Opera in the Media Age: Essays on Art, Technology, and Popular Culture from McFarland Press. His chapter looks at The Metropolitan Opera’s series “The Met: Live in HD” and the comparative audience experience between audiences in the opera house and those in the cinema.

O’Connell also was nominated recently as a candidate for the two-year position of vice president-elect for Conference 2016 for the Association of Theatre in Higher Education. Elections take place in the spring.
