Rude Mechanicals

Devised Theater Company

Engagement Information

The Rude Mechs met with beginning and advanced acting classes, engaged in a discussion with students interested in arts entrepreneurship, and met with scientists at the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) in downtown Durham to discuss the biological themes of their performance piece.
