The Italian experimental theater company Dewey Dell presented "à elle vide," Sept. 9 and 10 in the Patricelli '92 Theater. Named after a character in William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying," the group was formed in 2007 by Teodora, Demetrio and Agata Castellucci, along with Eugenio Resta. Their two-week residency at Wesleyan included the American debut performances of "à elle vide" and "Cinquanta Urlanti Quaranta Ruggenti Sessanta Stridenti" (not pictured).
Dewey Dell's 25-minute work focused on the creation of a void between two characters, the red Rooster and the white Scorpion.
Dewey Dell's residency was presented by the Theater Department and the Center for the Arts. It was made possible by a grant from the Catharine and Thomas McMahon Fund with additional support from the Dance Department. (Photos by Bill Tyner '13)
