UCD MFA candidates heat up with ‘Hot Country’

By From page A7 | April 03, 2013

Solo Explorations 2013 presents new individual pieces by graduating master of fine arts acting candidates Bobby August Jr., Maria Candelaria, Susan-Jane Harrison and Aaron Jessup in “Hot Country.” The artists are set against a stark landscape: a varied shifting terrain, the map of political events, transit across the seas.

The four solo performers split identities: “Question Mark” by August revolves around alienation and loss; Harrison’s “Possession” investigates the space between arrival and destination; in “I’m Ulrike — Screaming,” Candelaria explores flesh within cells, a prism within prison; and Jessup’s “Flying Dreams” offers a trans-Atlantic vaudevillian tragicomedy.

“Hot Country” plays at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Arena Theater in  Wright Hall at UCD. This production is open to the public and free. Seating is limited.
