FLIGHT at the Center for Performance Experiment

USC Department of Theatre and Dance presents Flight April 22 – 29 at the USC Center for Performance Experiment. Theatre professors Steven Pearson and Robyn Hunt developed their original play about aviation’s unsung female pioneers at USC in 2009, before taking it on tour to venues around the country. Loosely inspired by Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, this “theatrical poem” follows two daring French actresses, subjects of a documentary by a similarly trailblazing female filmmaker, who are preparing to make a history-making flight from Paris to Moscow in 1913. Flight opens eyes and hearts to the long-forgotten stories of the courageous women for whom the sky was not the limit. Tickets $10.
