A...WOMAN IN MOTION WITH HAIR AS DARK AS NIGHT HER EYES WERE LIKE THAT OF A CAT IN THE DARK... SHE WAS A GYPSYWOMAN... she danced round and round... from the fire her face was all aglow... she was dancing... dancing... waiting for the RISING SUN... loving caring relationships are like THE RISING SUN...we are nourished by their warmth...we are energized by their strength...we grow in their light...we find shelter and solace there...they are our sanctuary... born in the sign of the sun, i am a true LEO-love the sun and its hot orange red fire-passionate in and about everything i do-i believe in instant chemistry charisma love/lust at first sight-in the magic of the eyes and the beauty of the soul-in the instant recognition familiarity in meeting someone from a past life and in the knowledge that we might meet in a future life-i believe that we are each ageless and flawless-i believe in the beauty of the moment-the whisper of yesterday-the hope of tomorrow-the power of forgiveness for even ourselves-the absolute and total beauty of love---[credit to brian hyland and curtis mayfield]

LSU-SHREVEPORT OPENING OF COPENHAGEN - Frayn's play of Bohr and Heisenberg Meeting

COPENHAGEN

The LSUS Department of Communications in partnership with jcgCollaborations will kick off this season's "At Your Own Risk" series of staged readings and workshop productions with "Copenhagen" on Friday.

The Tony Award-winning play, written by Michael Frayn, is directed by Jerelyn Gilstrap.

"It's based on a true story about two world-leading physicists who picked up relativity where Einstein left off," Gilstrap said.

The two physicists are Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg.

"Heisenberg was only 26 years old when he developed the theory of how we look at the universe," Gilstrap said. "During World War II he was put in charge of Germany's nuclear development program."

In 1941, the physicists had not seen each other for several years and Heisenberg asked Bohr for a meeting. And no one could figure out why he wanted to meet with Bohr.

"Even today nobody knows what Heisenberg had on his mind," Gilstrap said. "What the playwright has done is he brings us to these characters after they are dead and presents three scenarios that might have happened."

The play is performed with only three actors: Reece Middleton portrays Bohr; Marshall Middleton portrays Bohr's wife, Margrethe; and John Bundrick plays Heisenberg.

"Even though the play is about science, it's also about three lives and relationships that lasted a lifetime," Gilstrap said.

Gilstrap said directing the production has had its challenges because there aren't any props or scenery and the play is filled with lots of science.

"It's a very wordy, talkative play and I think Heisenberg has somewhere around 10 monologues," she said. "And to be able to turn those monologues into something that will grab and hold the audiences' attention is an easier process for some than others."

Gilstrap wants the audience to walk away with the realization that substantive drama can be as entertaining and intriguing as lighter fare.

"I want to challenge theatergoers with thought-provoking drama," she said.
