UA Theatre’s Studio Series presents OUROBOROS - Original Works by School of Theatre, Film & Television Students, directed by Matt Walley


The ouroboros, a universal symbol representing the circular nature of life, is the foundation of this devised work. Through the use of breath, rhythm, color, movement, and creative collaboration, Ouroboros explores five stages of life and takes the audience on an imaginative journey.

The School of Theatre, Film & Television Studio Series is dedicated to supporting the original and contemporary pieces of performance through a ‘bare essentials’ production format that draws primary focus to the artistic and intellectual labor of theatre students. Its community-centered, people generated approach to performance provides creative learning opportunities for student artists, thought-provoking experiences for audiences, and occasions for productive dialogue about topics relevant to student populations and the broader Tucson community.

Director and UA faculty member, Matt Walley, has received critical acclaim as recently as last month for his own co-creation of work, MixTape, in Tucson’s Etcetera, which is Live Theatre Workshop’s late night program for night owls who crave live theatre. His MixTape co-creator was Angela Horchem. MixTape was an amalgamation of skits featuring mime, music and dance. Tucson Sentinel’s Dave Irwin said Walley demonstrated a “mastery of comedy” with MixTape. The Arizona Daily Star said, “√Čthe performance at Etcetera has enticed us enough that we are anxious to see what they do next.” Well, here’s that next opportunity to see Matt Walley’s work. As a bonus, there is a 20-minute, post-show discussion after each 40-minute performance.
