8 Perspectives

The Phillips Academy Theatre & Dance Department is proud to present our Winter 2021 THD920 production, 8 Perspectives.

This short film is a culmination of student research and work throughout the Winter Term and explores the intersection between activism and performance.  Our ensemble was inspired by current events, such as Covid-19; #metoo; #blacklivesmatter and their personal lives to create a series of individual performative research segments. 

The premiere viewing will be on Saturday, March 27th at 8pm.
