'Emotionally charged' dance performance an 'immersive experience'

{{featured_button_text}}

“The Yellow Wallpaper,” opening during the Casper College Humanities Festival, is a dance adaptation of an 1892 semi-autobiographical short story by Charlotte Perkins about a young woman’s experience with a then-popular “rest cure” for postpartum depression and nervousness.

“The rest cure is often considered worse than the actual diagnosis itself,” director Aaron M. Wood said in a Casper College press release.

The “immersive experience” entwines dance, theater and multimedia elements in “an emotionally charged and darkly humorous examination of an isolated woman’s state of reality.”

When: 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20-22, 27-29 and 2 p.m. Feb. 23 and 29
