Charise Greene — “Men on Boats”

“Men on Boats” by Jaclyn Backhaus

Most recently, Charise directed Jaclyn Backhaus’ “Men on Boats” at Barnard-Columbia.
 
In 1869, John Wesley Powell led a group of 10 men down the Colorado River to chart its course. With only four boats, a month’s provisions, and plenty of moxie, these men risked life and limb, all in the name of Manifest Destiny. Based on Powell’s travel journals, this modern action adventure — performed by a cast of women — undertakes a comic and pointed exploration of American expansion.
