King Gordogan

The Bridge Initiative is partnering with Columbia Scholar, Carla Stockton, who will be in residence with us to present an excerpt from her new translation of Croatian poet, Radovan Ivsic’s King Gordogan, written in 1943, during the Nazi occupation of his beloved Zagreb. The play is a powerful example of Theater of the Absurd, a satire about power’s all-consuming destructiveness. Media designers, Daniel Fine and Boyd Branch, will be working with director Erika Hughes, and a cast of actors to create a mediated presentation, exploring the project’s future potential.

There will be two presentations at Benedictine University at Mesa, 225 E Main St, Mesa, AZ 85201 on Sunday, April 10th @ 3pm & 6pm. Reception to follow presentations.
