Jonathan Seinen, Assistant Professor, Theater
Jonathan Seinen, assistant professor of theater, has directed and produced Iphigenia and the Furies (On Taurian Land) by Ho Ka Kei, that will be streamed online February 23-26. Filmed at Toronto's storied Theatre Passe Murialle this past January, it won the Toronto Critic's Circle Award for Best New Canadian Play. This adaptation of a classic Greek play by Euripides unapologetically transforms a myth from the ancient past into a quick-witted, genre-bending theatrical experience, demanding that a young generation write a new narrative for our times. Tickets are available online and viewing links will be sent via email.
Additionally, Seinen co-wrote Access Me by the Boys In Chairs Collective, published in the just-released anthology Interdependent Magic: Disability Performance in Canada by Playwrights Canada Press. This new play shares stories at the intersection of disability and gay/queer sexuality. More information can be found on the Playwrights Canada Press website.
