Emily A. Rollie, Ph.D. & Director talks UNO Theatre’s Men On Boats!

Emily A. Rollie Ph.D., Director of Men on Boats at UNO Theatre talks about this history reimagined production made up of non-binary and female cast members!  In addition, we learned about her other role as an Intimacy Choreographer, which is timely and a newer concept to the theatre stage.  Dr. Rollie also serves as an Educator and Faculty Member of the Washington Central State University theatre department, as well as an Associate Faculty Member for Theatrical Intimacy Education.  She has written numerous articles, has served as an Artistic Director at the Independent Actors Theatre, and has a Master's Degree in Theatre at Central Washington University and her Ph.D. at the University of Missouri-Columbia.  

Dr. Rollie has many more credits and talents to her name and can be found on her website:  https://www.emilyrollie.com/.  And suffice to say, she has brought her vast talents to this production at UNO Theatre.  In addition, it's perfect timing, since March is Women's History Month to bring such a talented female to our state who has been a resource and advocate for women in theatre, and a gender and sexuality educator.  She was the Assistant Director of Troubling Violence Performance Project (TVPP) a group dedicated to opening lines of communication about issues of relationship violence through the performance of personal narratives.  

There's so much to unpack here:  Men On Boats is a history reimagined play about the 1869 exploration of what is known today as the Grand Canyon, as well as learning about Intimacy Choreography from such a talented Creative.  Join us for a great conversation with Emily A. Rollie, Ph.D.!

Performances are February 23-25th, and March 2-4 at 7:30PM; and Feb 26 and March 5th at 2PM.
