Pig Iron Theatre Co. in residence

Philadelphia's Pig Iron Theatre Co. will be in residence in Princeton's Program in Theater and Dance through Oct. 6 as Short-Term Fellows of the Council of the Humanities .

Pig Iron was founded in 1995 as "a dance-clown-theatre ensemble dedicated to the creation of new and exuberant performance works." Its work is based on "a flexible and original model of playwriting; an evolving, physical definition of character; and a commitment to style and genre."

Pig Iron will present its most recent work, "Shut Eye," at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5-6, in the Matthews Acting Studio, 185 Nassau St. "Shut Eye" -- a collaboration with American theater director Joseph Chaikin, founder of the Open Theater -- is a lyrical exploration of the mysterious borderline between waking and sleeping.

The company also will be visiting Princeton classes and presenting workshops for students during the residency.

Tickets for "Shut Eye" can be purchased through the Frist box office (258-1742) or on the night of the performance at the Matthews Acting Studio.
