  • Time Bandits

    2/16/13
    1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Time Bandits. Monty Python affiliate Terry Gilliam gathers some of his favorite funny people to form this story of a fairy tale come to life. Young Kevin daydreams materialize when a troupe of little men burst through the wall of his wardrobe and sweep him off on a journey through history, planning to steal from some of the great men of times past. In an attempt to stay ahead of The Supreme Being, they dart through time, encountering figures like Napoleon, Robin Hood, Agamemnon and even Evil himself. With a cast including John Cleese, Ian Holm and Sean Connery, Gilliam pulls off his traditionally irreverent and ragingly funny story gone awry.

  • The Shipment

    2/16/13
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Shipment. Playwright and director Young Jean Lee and a talented cast of five African-American performers create an unsettling terrain of well-trodden stereotypes that dare audiences to laugh as they consider their own preconceptions about race and culture. One of the leading and most provocative voices in American contemporary theatre, Lee pushes herself to new artistic heights as she confronts her fear about creating an ethnic identity play through the lens of a "black identity politics show."

  • American Utopias

    2/16/13
    8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Mainstage
    http://artsemerson.org

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents American Utopias. Controversial monologist Mike Daisey in his newest work paints a distinctly American vision of utopia—how we create public spaces in which we come together to act out our dreams of a better world. Daisey takes us all over the map to pursue the story: from Disney World and its nostalgic theme park perfection, to the drug-fueled anarchic excesses of Burning Man, to Zuccotti Park, where in the unlikeliest place the Occupy movement was born. Gun-play, giant glittery dildos, raving animatronic presidents and brutal police actions come together to paint the stark landscape of our new American dream.

  • City Council Meeting

    2/16/13
    9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents City Council Meeting. City Council Meeting is a participatory theatre event about empathy, democracy and power. Created by Aaron Landsman, Mallory Catlett and Jim Findlay, the project combines local government transcripts, original writing and a surprise ending, revealing the city we make together each night by performing it. Who are you in this place? You live here. What's your problem? City Council Meeting is a New England Foundation for the Arts National Theater Pilot project, and will be presented in four U.S. cities (and counting), with additional funding from New Play Network and MAP. The project is developed with lead support from the HERE Artist-in-Residence Program (HARP).
