 "...as much about life as it is death, and how we can never sever one from the other."
—The New York Times

New England Premiere

Actor/director Kaneza Schaal '06 offers a powerful meditation on loss, grief, and ritual in a performance incorporating projection, sound, text, and movement. Inspired by the Egyptian Book of the Dead--a 3000-year-old series of spells and incantations intended for the deceased as a blueprint to the afterlife--GO FORTH (2016) creates space for the presence of the absent, the imagined, and the longed for.



Ms. Schaal previously spoke about her professional career in acting at “Theater after Wesleyan: Class of ’06” in February 2012 in the Ring Family Performing Arts Hall (former CFA Hall).

Presented by the Theater Department and Center for the Arts. The Inner-City News is a Media Sponsor of these performances.

GO FORTH was commissioned by Performance Space 122 with support from the Jerome Foundation and supported by a Nathan Cummings Foundation grant, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency, Baryshnikov Arts Center residency, The Princess Grace Foundation, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Process Space Residency, a Bogliasco Fellowship, and research trip to Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. GO FORTH was presented at the Genocide Memorial Amphitheater in Kigali Rwanda this summer with support from a Theater Communications Group Global Connections grant.
