From May Treuhaft-Ali ’17:
Ulysses is a love story. It is a story about the love between a husband and wife, and between a parent and child. It is a story about three individuals searching for a sense of belonging in a community that marginalizes them. It is also a story about flowers, hot chocolate, farts, flirtations, shooting stars, and the myriad moments that can transform an ordinary day into an epic journey. Because Ulysses is the epic of everyday life, this piece will be site-specific and take place in locations throughout the Wesleyan campus, as a theatrical intervention in the public sphere.
Performance dates are April 13-15. All actors will receive 1.00 academic credit for working on this project.
For your audition, please compose a performance (2-4 minutes) about one of the following:
1. A love song
2. A time you embarked on a long journey home

Your composition may take the form of a story, dance, song, scene, et cetera.
