Bodek Lounge, Houston Hall

Free. Public invited.


Richard Foreman has been one of America's preeminent experimental directors for over thirty-five years. In his Ontological-Hysteric Theater, he has used words and images to comment upon one another. And now for the first time, Foreman incorporates projected images into theatrical space in Zomboid, which premiered January 2006 in New York.

The Penn Humanities Forum, Penn Theatre Arts Program, and Penn Cinema Studies Program are pleased to bring Mr. Foreman to the Penn campus to discuss his latest work.
