About Kenn Watt
As a long-time director, I am interested in theatre as an art form driven by a synthesis of many art forms, philosophical inquiry, historical rethinking, spatial inventiveness and physical dynamism. I want to share with students the fullness of this way of thinking theatrically, encourage a diversity of opinion, and investigate the continuing essential role of theater in society.
