  • "Stupid Bastards:" Conciliation, The Act of First Encounter

    2/23/16
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Little Building
    Beard

    Honors Program Lecture with Grant Farred, Professor of Africana Studies and English at Cornell University

    Because of the historic role he played in desegregating baseball, Jackie Robinson has been overdetermined as the de-racialized figure of tolerance and integration par excellence. That is, Jackie Robinson as simultaneously the exemplary integrationist, as the restrained, disciplined Negro who made black players tolerable to white America and Jackie Robinson as the (now) eviscerated political cipher who "transcends" race by making it, in the face of the (receding, denuded) history he made, a matter of "history" – that political configuration which belongs, incontrovertibly, to a moment that is past. In concentrating on a singular, combustible event, this presentation renders Robinson as a figure of conciliation: as the subject who acts, from the very first encounter, politically.

  • 'Stupid Bastards': Conciliation, The Act of First Encounter. A lecture with Grant Farred, Cornell University

    2/23/16
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Little Building
    Beard Room

     Because of the iconic role he played in desegregating baseball, Jackie Robinson is historically remembered as a figure of tolerance: as the black player who bore insults and physical intimidation with immense self-restraint. Robinson has become, against the facts, a player shorn of anger and political intensity. The fiercely competitive and intolerant Robinson has no place in public memory. This presentation renders Robinson differently: as a fully political actor. Grant Farred teaches at Cornell University. He is the author of, most recently, Martin Heidegger Saved My Life and In Motion, At Rest: The Event of the Athletic Body. His forthcoming projects include Conciliation, The Condemned: Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the 2014 World Cup and Negro: Two Essays on James Baldwin.

    Circus Without Borders is a documentary about Guillaume Saladin and Yamoussa Bangoura, best friends and world-class acrobats from remote corners of the globe who share the same dream: To bring hope and change to their struggling communities through circus. Their dream unfolds in the Canadian Arctic and Guinea, West Africa, where they help Inuit and Guinean youth achieve unimaginable success while confronting suicide, poverty and despair.

    Seven years in the making, this tale of two circuses — Artcirq and Kalabante — is a culture-crossing performance piece that offers a portal into two remote communities, and an inspiring story of resilience and joy.

It is a performance about hope and despair, grief and faith, and, finally, overcoming.

Playmaking uses a variety of theatre structures, such as improvisation, character exploration, scene work, movement and monologue.

    WLP Alumna Rebecca Morgan Frank will read from her new collection of poems, The Spokes of Venus, published by Carnegie Mellon University Press, at the Blacksmith House Poetry Series.

    "Rebecca Morgan Frank's dazzling new collection leaps into the world of art making, inspired at first by the 19th century astronomer Percival Lowell's absurd insistence that he saw, through his own telescope, canals on the planet Venus—what he was seeing was the reflection of his own veinous eye! From this "creative" mistake, Frank moves into poems in conversations with artists living and dead, poems that turn us upside down and shake the reasonable dust of art history out of our pockets. They whirl into their subjects in an irresistible frenzy of language and music."– WLP faculty member Gail Mazur

  • Identity through Art

    3/29/16
    10:00 am - 12:00 pm
    Max Mutchnick Campus Center
    Multipurpose Room

    Lecture with award-winning playwright, actress, screenwriter, and documentary filmmaker Hanna Azulay Hasfari

    Hanna Azulay Hasfari, award-winning actress, screenwriter, playwright, and documentary filmmaker tells what happened to her since she saw Gone with the Wind in Israel in the 1970's. How the dream of becoming a blue-eyed lady living in the American South as Scarlett O'Hara could not materialize because of her background as a Moroccan immigrant living in poverty in the periphery in Israel. Hanna's lecture will explore the effects and benefits of academic, historic and familial research into one's past and roots on one's identity as an artist and activist.

    Curation and the Politics of Listening


    TUE, APR 5 @ 7PM

    Moderated by Abe Rybeck, Artistic Director of The Theater Offensive
    Featuring ArtsEmerson Leadership Team

    How do we choose what art an audience gets to see? How do we know what they will like, what we like, what will entertain and provoke, and what will sell tickets? How is our curatorial practice a reflection of our own identities and the identities of the audiences we imagine? Finally, how much of curatorial expertise comes from knowing and how much from listening to the communities we represent?

    "Some Other Race": Exploring the Diversity within the Latino story


    TUE, MAY 10 @ 7PM

    Moderated by Noe Montez, Assistant Professor of Drama, Tufts University

    Latinos are becoming a majority demographic in the US but yet still find themselves boxed into "some other race" on the US Census. How are Latinos updating our national narrative to be truly reflective of a changing America? How does the diversity inside of the Latino experience, whether Cuban, or Chicano, or South American, challenge and reflect the American cultural narrative? How do artists and communities create stories inside the breadth that is the Latino identity?
