Feb. 6, 2021 – Wash. U. in St. Louis Symposium and Zoom Performance

Thanks to advertising on social media, I caught wind of this entertaining event focused on a late 19th century translation of Plautus’ “Rudens” by the Ladies’ Literary Society, and hosted by Washington University in St. Louis. I attended the morning Symposium, and my students were in attendance for the afternoon Zoom performance, which featured creative use of background photos for scenery, innovative costume changes, and brilliant use of Zoom for the performance delivery. We discussed this strategy as a possible vehicle for the students’ performance, which would enable one of the students to participate from Alaska.

I am a Professor of ancient Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies at Gustavus Adolphus College, and this blog is an account of the brainstorming and planning that went into the 2021 Plautus students' creation of the film, "Megan & Meghan" that premiered at 7:00 PM CST, April 21, 2021, via Zoom.
