Bailiwick Directors Festival '94

comment

Bailiwick Repertory's sixth annual Directors Festival showcases the aspirations of generally unknown, mostly young pro, semipro, and student directors whose projects range from established classical and contemporary selections to brand-new material. Bailiwick Repertory, Bailiwick Arts Center, 1229 W. Belmont, 883-1090. The fest concludes Thursday, October 27, at 7:30 PM with a program of three one-acts linked by the theme "Symbols and Absurdities." $8 for the whole evening.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27

Act Without Words

Samuel Beckett's work is performed by deaf and hearing actors under Robert Schleifer's direction.

The Billy Club Puppets . . . The Tragicomedy of Don Cristobal and Miss Rosita

Federico Garcia Lorca's early one-act was originally performed as a children's puppet show; Full Moon Circus's production, directed by Tom Tenney, uses live actors and a range of performance styles, including Spanish puppet theater and commedia dell'arte.

Sakuntala

Maria Muller directs an ensemble-created piece in which the Hindu epic Mahabharata becomes "a modern parable of the evolution of women."
