RILKE’S “BOOK OF HOURS” THEATRE FUNDRAISER
Directed by Charlie Pepiton, Assistant Professor
“I believe in all that has never yet been spoken / I want to free what waits within me /
so that what no one has dared to wish for / may for once spring clear / without my contriving.” ~Rilke
Gonzaga Theatre & Dance presents an original devised theatrical event created by the ensemble. We will draw from Rainer Maria Rilke’s The Book of Hours. Written in 1899, when the poet was 23 years old, The Book of Hours remains a startlingly raw and relevant collection of love poems to a God. Rilke writes as young man desperate to forge his own understanding. He loves. He doubts. He struggles for meaning in an uncertain time.
