About this event
Interdisciplinary Arts Symposium presents Target Margin Theatre: The Argument and Dinner Party April 23–24 | 7:00 pm | Johnny Carson Theater at the Lied Center Adults – $12 (FREE to UNL faculty & staff) Students – $6 (FREE to UNL students) Experience two theatrical works in one evening, directed by award-winning David Herskovits, founder of acclaimed Target Margin Theatre. Based on both Aristotle’s Poetics and the essays of Gerald F. Else, The Argument is a passionate student’s love-letter and farewell to his teacher — reminding us of the personal pathos that binds us to the Greeks, and firing us to capture that chimera, art. A detailed yet playful adaptation of Plato’s Symposium, Dinner Party takes on love from every angle, delving into the original text with gusto to bring out the philosophy and lust, language and appetite — not to mention really good wine.
