The Nevada Conservatory Theatre continues its 2023-24 season with Steven Dietz's American La Ronde Oct. 2 - 22 in the Black Box Theatre. Michael Lugering directs.
Ten strangers' sexual encounters reveal how primal human instincts can shatter the social constructs that bind one person to another. Provocative, funny, and highly theatrical, playwright Dietz’s riveting re-imagining of Arthur Schnitzler’s 1903 banned play Reigen, places these lovers in the heart of contemporary America sexual politics.
Lugering is a master teacher of voice, movement, and acting. He has spent over 15 years researching the physical, psychological, behavioral, and aesthetic aspects of human expression. The Lugering Method marks a revolutionary departure from traditional methods of actor training. In this truly integrated technique the voice and body, thought and feeling, sound and movement, psyche and soma are synthesized in the practical exploration of expression action. Additionally, Lugering is a passionate director noted for his innovative approach to the classics. He has served as a professional voice coach for the Utah Shakespearean Festival and the Nevada Conservatory Theatre.
