"A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea”

TheatreUNI will present “A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea” by Kit Steinkeller at 7 p.m., Sept. 29 - Oct. 2 and on Oct. 3  at 2 p.m. in the Arts Triangle Courtyard on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

“A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea” is a “deconstruction” of the Greek myth of Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun, written by Kit Steinkeller (the creator of the television series “Sorry for Your Loss”).  Described by the author as a “whimsical drama,” the play, at times deeply silly and at times very sad, asks questions about the essential nature of truth, the lies we tell ourselves and the enduring power of story and myth. 

“A Small Pair of Feet”  is the first offering of TheatreUNI’s 2021-2022  season and the first live theatre production since the start of the pandemic.  The production is directed by Matthew James Weedman, associate professor of performance. Scenic design is by Mark Parrott, associate professor of design, and costume design is by Megan Gilchrist, a senior design and production student.  Lighting design is by Ron Koinzen  and the production stage manager is Olivia McQuerry. This play will be produced outdoors. 

Tickets are $15 for chairs, $10 for stair seats (cushions available), $6 for ground seats (bring your own blanket) and free for UNI students with their student ID. Tickets can be purchased from the UNITix website and at the UNItix counter in the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center.

Perpetrator Representation in Claude Lanzmann's Shoah and its Outtakes

In this moderated discussion, Professor Erin McGlothlin will explore part of Claude Lanzmann’s monumental documentary Shoah (1985), a nine- and-a-half-hour film that features interviews Lanzmann conducted with Holocaust survivors, witnesses, and perpetrators. McGlothlin will focus on one of Lanzmann’s most fascinating (and most troubling) interviews in Shoah, namely the director’s dialogue with Franz Suchomel, a former guard of the Treblinka killing center. Based on her recent research, McGlothlin will discuss not only the moments of the Suchomel interview that appear in Shoah, but also sections of the hundreds of hours of the film’s outtake footage that has been restored and digitized by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC and Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Israel. By carefully comparing the outtakes of Lanzmann’s interview with Suchomel with the sequences in Shoah that feature his testimony, McGlothlin is able to reconstruct in minute detail how the film director shaped the testimony of the apparently unrepentant and even gleeful former perpetrator whom we encounter in the finished film.

Naoko Fugimoto Poetry Reading

Naoko Fujimoto reads from her latest book Glyph: Graphic Poetry=Trans. Sensory (Tupelo Press, 2021). The event will take place in person in the Bartlett Courtyard and simultaneously on Zoom. Fujimoto’s poetry combines words with handmade images to create new experiences with a traditional Japanese style of Emaki. Emaki is an illustrated text, where pictures are drawn on a scroll, conveying a story and side-stories. This event is funded by the Dr. H. W. Reninger Endowed Lecture Series and sponsored by the Department of Languages & Literatures, the North American Review, and the English Club. Copies of the North American Review’s Fall 2021 issue will be available at the event, which includes Fujimoto’s graphic poem “Offshore of Rikuzentakata.” The UNI Bookstore will also be at the event to sell Fujimoto’s most recent book, Glyph: Graphic Poetry=Trans. Sensory, or if you simply can’t wait, you can purchase it here
