2013 Arts Award honoree Sue Coe (b. 1951, U.K.) is an internationally acclaimed artist and activist whose paintings and prints explore animal rights, social injustice, capitalism and politics. Working in a style reminiscent of German expressionism, Coe brings together works that expose the cruelty and brutality of the slaughterhouse industry and demand a sustainable, humane approach to food production. Coe served a weeklong residency in November.

Oedipus

Mathers Theatre, Holland Union Building

Oedipus was made king by solving the riddle of the Sphinx-"What is the creature that walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon and three in the evening?"- and his skills are further challenged as he attempts to unravel the mystery of who killed the former king. The consequences send shivers down the spine. Is Oedipus guilty? Is he a victim of circumstance or a hero who pursues truth at all cost? 

Much has changed since Sophocles wrote this play in 429 B.C., but our unrelenting quest to answer its underlying questions still burns strong in Steven Berkoff's modern translation. This free, public production is directed by Karen Lordi-Kirkham, associate professor of theatre & dance and executive artistic director of Pendragon Theater.
