Associate Professor Dave Anderson, Archaeology & Anthropology, leads a group of UWL archaeology students at a site near Holmen, Wisconsin. The site contains refuse pits from the Oneota culture, A.D.1450-1600.
“Nobody in our student-run theater company has ever worked on a project of this nature before, but we face each new challenge together with a positive attitude and an open mind,” says Carly Boles, UWL student and co-producer. The theatre production is an actor-collaborative and gender-neutral production of Shakespeare's, ‘Macbeth.’ The production’s famous role of Macbeth is played by a woman and multiple other male characters are played by women and vice versa. Actors will play more than one role throughout the show. The student-run company is composed of eight actors and four designers. “This project pushes students outside of their comfort zone by requiring them to take an active role in all aspects of a theatrical production,” says Boles. The project is funded by a UWL Undergraduate Research Grant.
