Thalia


Thalia was made specifically for Thalian Hall, a Wilmington NC theater built in 1858. The installation was up on November 13 and 14, 2010. This is a 4:30 minute documentation of the piece.

Thalia is the muse of comedy, but she is wistful today, reflecting on some the people who have come and gone upon her stage since 1858. Perhaps a little bit of their essence still lingers, and mixes with the viewer’s own…

The people who have appeared in Thalian Hall and in this video are:

Frederick Douglass, Lecture, 8/2/1872
William Frederick Cody, Combination Show, 10/25/1875
Oscar Wilde, Lecture, 1/7/1897
Loie Fuller, Dance Performance, 2/18/1897
Maxine Elliott, The Gilded Fool, 4/14/1898
Joseph Jefferson, Jr., Rip Van Winkle, 3/8/1905
