TEDxSwarthmore - Stephen Lang - On Beyond Glory: The Architecture of Acting

Stephen Lang will speak about the creative evolution of Beyond Glory, a solo play that he began working on in 2003 and has performed more than 300 times. At heart, the play is a meditation on themes of courage, honor, fortitude, and humility. In his fifth decade as a professional actor, Beyond Glory represents Lang's most personally meaningful work. In "The Architecture of Acting," he will attempt to explain why in 18 minutes.

Actor and playwright Stephen Lang ('73) is perhaps best known for his role as Col. Quaritch in Avatar. Other memorable roles in film include Last Exit to Brooklyn and Tombstone. On Broadway, he has appeared in Death of a Salesman and A Few Good Men, among other plays.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
