I enjoy ironing. I also really like scrambling eggs. I love to watch things becoming. Similarly, I’ve caught myself completely unable to turn away from Bob “Happy Tree” Ross as he paints landscapes. I know I’m not alone.
The act of creation is a mesmerizing experience that touches a primal cord in everyone. It’s the process of formation that’s fascinating.
In his work as a visiting artist in the department of Communication Studies at UNC-CH, Joseph Megel (currently a Chatham County resident) directs The Process Series, a program of Carolina Performing Arts which aims “…to illuminate the ways in which artistic ideas take form and to follow artists and performers as they explore and discover.”
This coming weekend, Friday, Dec. 2 & Saturday, Dec. 3 at 8pm, the multi-media production by Jared Mezzocchi “Poppa, God Bless” will be the latest featured presentation in The Process Series at the historic Playmakers Theater on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Admission is free and performances are open to the public.
