On Saturday, October 26, 2019, Hancher was pleased to present SITI Company's The Bacchae, a new English translation and innovative take on one of the Western world’s greatest dramas, directed by internationally-acclaimed director and scholar Anne Bogart. On Friday, October 25, 2019, Bogart joined Alan MacVey, the Director of the Division of Performing Arts, for a conversation about listening deeply, unpacking meaning ("What is it? What is it really?"), and more, as part of the creative process of theatremaking. This conversation was presented as part of the UI Creative Matters series, which seeks to demonstrate that creativity is not only at the core of all research and discovery, but also central to our human experience.
