Movement is a powerful element in how we express ourselves as humans as well as in the arts. Whether it is how an actor clumsily limps across stage, how a pianist elegantly and forcefully strokes the keys, or maybe it’s how the line streaks across a painting. Movement without dialogue can be extremely powerful and beautiful. After working with guest artists, Anna Kimmell with dancing in musical theatre, and Brendan McMahon with mask work, students are encouraged to combine different forms of movement to create their own short stories on topics of unity or diversity in this silent production that brings our community together.

Original works produced by the Zeta Delta Cast of Alpha Psi Omega, UCA’s honorary theatre society. Special thanks to the Student Government Association and the National Chapter of Alpha Psi Omega for providing additional funding.

The scene is a stark motel room at the edge of the Mojave Desert. May, a disheveled young woman, sits dejectedly on a rumpled bed while Eddie, a rough-spoken rodeo performer, crouches in a corner fiddling with his riding gear. When he attempts to console May, who is distressed by Eddie’s frequent absences and love affairs, she seems, at first, to soften—but then she suddenly attacks him. As the recriminations pour out, and the action becomes at times physically violent, the desperate nature of their relationship becomes apparent—they cannot get along with, or without, one another, yet neither can subdue their burning passion.

Aaronetta and Ida Gibbs have lived next door to each other most of their lives and along with Esther, all of the Gibb sisters are an open book to each. Husbands not included. Into the fray comes Myrtle Brown, perpetually engaged to Ida’s son Homer. But Homer can’t seem to pop the question. Taking matters into her own hands, Myrtle finally gets a proposal by compelling Homer to fly the nest. Sort of.
