Fire on the Hill

Directors: AB Brown & Jessie Laurita-Spanglet

Fire on the Hill is a collaboratively devised performance presented by Colby College’s Department of Theater and Dance and directed by AB Brown with choreography by Jessie Laurita-Spanglet. Built using interviews from those who have been involved in activism on campus, this performance weaves together text and movement to create an immersive theatre experience that explores the past, present, and future of activism at Colby. Fire on the Hill investigates Colby’s fluctuating relationship to activism, the challenge of building on the steps we have taken so far, and the frustrations that bubble up when change is slow to come. Ultimately, the production seeks to honor past activists and asks what activism can and should look like as we move forward in our current politically and socially charged moment.
