The Last Days of the Old Wild Boy

Looking for some cathartic and/or mimetic fun? Sewon Kang ’14 has just the ticket:

Come see Rinde Eckert’s Fall Faculty Theater Production The Last Days
of the Old Wild Boy!

The Last Days of the Old Wild Boy is about a man raised by wolves who finds himself toward the end of his life at the top of the food chain. Powerful and erudite, he longs for a return to the wildness of the
wolf he was–but how does one recover one’s original, less conditioned or acculturated self? What is gained in the effort? What is lost in translation? The Grammy Award-winning musician, writer, composer, librettist, and director will perform the world premiere of a new work developed during his residency at Wesleyan.

Audition for The Last Days of the Old Wild Boy

 

Awoooooo! From Sewon Kang ’14:

Celebrated playwright Rinde Eckert is currently in residency at Wesleyan as part of the Creative Campus Initiative in conjunction with the Theater Department. Eckert is developing a new play that will be performed by Wesleyan students on November 15-17, 2012. The Last Days of the Old Wild Boy is about a man raised by wolves who finds himself toward the end of his life at the top of the food chain, powerful and erudite, but longing for a return to the wilderness of the wolf he once was. How does one recover one’s original, less conditioned or acculturated self? What is gained in the effort? What is lost in translation? Our language gets us in deep trouble and elevates us at the same time. Should I be howling now?
