Our students work hard to become some of the best actors out there, and now’s your chance to see what our great talents can achieve. Our Film Acting Conservatory students will be performing “Red” by John Logan. This is where the acting student truly understands and gains command of the craft of acting. Don’t miss them in action.
“There is only one thing I fear in life, my friend… One day the black will swallow the red.”
Mark Rothko is in his New York studio in 1958/59, having been commissioned to paint a group of murals for the expensive and exclusive Four Seasons restaurant. He gives orders to his assistant, Ken, as he mixes the paints, makes the frames, and paints the canvases. Ken, however, brashly questions Rothko’s theories of art and his acceding to work on such a commercial project. For his part, Rothko dislikes the rise of pop art.
Ultimately, Rothko stops working on the project and decides to return the money. He explains to Ken that the Four Seasons is an inappropriate place for his murals to be seen.
