Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead is directed by Shea Saladee, IWCC Theatre Department Chair. The characters we meet in Burt V. Royal’s Dog See’s God are facing social, political, and moral issues that several of us as audience have encountered on our own journeys. Saladee explains, “the topics of drug use, suicide, abuse, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, and sexual identity are present in this coming of age story. In order to tell our story as a company we will employ many of Brecht’s Epic Theatre conventions including; ensemble, breaking the fourth wall, narration, speaking stage directions, using placards, minimal set/costume/props, harsh white light, song, gestures, and tableau.” We are asking the audience to be critical observers and use these stories to question, create a dialogue, and engage in action. “When something seems the most obvious thing in the world it means that any attempt to understand the world has been given up”- Bertolt Brecht. Tickets are free for IWCC students and staff, $5 for general admission tickets. Performances will run from April 20 – 22 at 7:30 p.m. Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. Dog Sees God contains mature content and language and is not suitable for young audiences. To reserve tickets or for more information, please call the Arts Center box office at (712) 388-7140.
