Vatzlav Auditions

Sivan Battat ’15 wants to know if you feel like clowning around:

Calling all clowns!Vatzlav Auditions

“’Vatzlav’ is a three-ring circus of a comedy, cataloguing the injustices – and the sheer craziness – of civilization.” – New York

The Play.
In VATZLAV (by Polish dramatist S?awomir Mro?ek), a castaway slave in search of a new life and identity washes up on a remote island after a tempest leaves him shipwrecked. Here he encounters a zany cast of characters including a blind Oedipus, a wealthy bloodsucking couple, and their son who pretends to be a bear while instigating a revolution. This panoramic Polish political farce spins a bizarre and biting tale of the absurd mechanisms of power in 77 brisk episodic scenes. Wesleyan alumna Lily Whitsitt (’06) directs. Please check with the Theater office or Stage Manager Sivan Battat (sbattat[at]wesleyan[dot]edu) for a copy of the play.

Film Series: Princess Mononoke

1997. Japan. Dir: Hayao Miyazaki. Animated. 134 min.

To rid himself of a demon’s curse, a young prince must travel to a faraway land where fierce war wages between Nature and Man. Master animator Miyazaki (Spirited Away, the upcoming The Wind Rises) crafts a beautiful Shintoist vision of ancient Japan, where giant gods and spirits roam the land.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
