University Theatre: Human Connections

"We are star stuff which has taken its destiny into its own hands.” - Carl Sagan

It has been hypothesized that our daily encounters with family, friends, colleagues, supervisors, and even strangers shape our brains and affect cells throughout our bodies down to the genetic level.  These connections - the Human Connections we make - change the way we see and ultimately experience our world. 

Herman Melville, an American novelist from the 1800’s, described the interconnected human experience this way:  “We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”

Human connection is the key to surviving the constantly changing world in which we inhabit.  And thus, University Theatre continues our exploration of the human experience through a focus this year on Human Connections - our 95th Anniversary Theatre Season theme for 2014-2015.
