The Macabre Theatre Ensemble isn’t your typical student organization. At Ithaca College, with a world renowned theater program, the Macabre Theatre Ensemble shows a different side of performing arts. Audience members are engaged with the show, breaking down the fourth wall to become a part of the productions. In “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, the performers explore gender and sexuality wearing nothing but sexy undergarments as the cult classic plays in the background. By the end, the audience is doing the same.

Macabre Theatre Ensemble came to life in Spring 2012, taking over the cult phenomenon “Rocky Horror Picture Show” in Fall 2013, a task previously held by IC Players. The supernatural, horror-comedy, avant-garde experimental theatre found its home at IC, and now proudly features four major productions this Fall, beginning with the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” this Halloween weekend.

 In a presentation entitled “Goodbye to Cinema: Jean-Luc Godard’s Adieu au langage as Images at the Edge of History,” Utterson analyzed the ways in which Godard’s 2014 film (distributed in the US as Goodbye to Language) uses contemporary 3D imaging technology to engage the history of cinema, bidding “goodbye” to a certain conception of the medium (the “adieu” of the film’s title) even while it seeks to reinvent its language (or “langage”).
