UT Austin Theatre and Dance presents Sonnets for an Old Century
Sonnets for an Old Century examines what it means to be alive at this particular time and place and what traces each of us will leave behind. In a series of monologues, using dance and live music, Sonnets captures the subtle, often overlooked treasures of everyday life.
An anthology-styled play by José Rivera, Sonnets for an Old Century explores the hopes, fears and epiphanies of a patchwork of souls from across the United States. Equal parts confession, celebration and elegy, this work, consisting of 28 monologues, investigates what it means to be alive and, perhaps, what dreams come after.
