Artist’s Statement:

Every landscape I create is a journey. It is a technical journey: from blank paper to a completed work and all that goes in between. It is a journey in skill: with every drawing I learn to look deeper, be braver. It is also the journey within the image: exploring the world opens my mind, engages my imagination, and excites my desire to create. Art is my way to express that journey and share the world that I see and feel. In this collection are my journeys to the Llangollen Canal in Wales, the highlands of Scotland, the waters of Puget Sound and Salish Sea, gardens of Langley, London, and Wrexham.


Thank you for journeying here today.

Dramaturg for Book-It Repertory's Jane Eyre

JE_BlogCover-1024x575.jpg

Jennifer also worked as the Dramaturg for Book-It Repertory’s adaptation of the Victorian classic, Jane Eyre this summer. Jane kicked off the 2018/2019 Season, adapted and directed by Julie Beckman.

What is a Dramaturg?

Dramaturgy is defined as the art or technique of dramatic composition and theatrical representation, and a dramaturg or -turge is a specialist. In other terms, a Dramaturg works as an historian and compiles contextual information about the source material (in this case, the novel Jane Eyre) and its author, the time period, locations, and other relevant information to provide historical context and accuracy to the director and actors to deepen the understanding and richness of the world of the play.

In addition to compiling research packets for the actors and creative team, Jennifer wrote essays published in the show program, and created interactive content for the theatre lobby display.

Read a snippet of Jennifer’s work shared on Book-It’s Blog here:

 

Lobby content includes a timeline of Charlotte Brontë’s life, early stage productions of Jane Eyre dating back to the mid 19th century, information on Brontë’s decision to publish under her male pseudonym, Currer Bell, a matching game with other famous female writers and their pseudonyms, and information on the real-life inspirations for the locations in the novel, all written and compiled by Jennifer Ewing.

Directed by Seattle Shakespeare Company Artistic Director George Mount, King Lear plays in parks throughout the Puget Sound region from July 12 - August 12. Tickets are free to the public.

About King Lear: An aging monarch’s last act could destroy his kingdom. After ruling for many years, Lear decides to divide his lands and wealth between his daughters.  Overestimating their love and loyalty, Lear finds everything that defined him as a king ripped from his hands. Only after wandering purposeless and tossed about in a storm of pain and madness, the once mighty ruler begins to discover his own humanity.

Wooden O is in it's 25th season! For more information about the show, please visit Seattle Shakespeare Company's website.
