- Wednesday, January 22, 2020 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
- Inspiration Hall (NAH 201)
Bozeman Actors Theatre, a professional acting company founded in 2008, stages co-productions of thought-provoking live theater during fall semesters with MSU, providing opportunities to engage in discussions about current topics. In October 2019, Bozeman Actors Theatre performed Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, a timely play involving issues of environment, pollution, free speech, political motivations, and peer pressure.
Bozeman Actors Theatre screens a brief documentary film about Henrik Ibsen's Enemy of the People play, and follows that with a moderated panel discussion based upon the timely topics brought out in the October 2019 BAT/MSU co-production of Enemy of the People. These topics include the integrity of science, environmental degradation, hypocrisy, economics, and the breakdown of civil discourse. The discussion panel is composed of the play's director Gordon Carpenter, dramaturg Gretchen Minton, and actors Kevin Asselin and Kalen Watson. The discussion will be extended to the audience and moderated by Dr. Gretchen Minton.
