    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Graceland Girls. The Graceland Girls School in central Kenya has become a leader in education for the young women of the country. This documentary, made by recent Emerson alumna Jordan Salvatoriello, follows some of the girls who have been able to defy the average expectations by using the education they received at the school, testifying to the power of knowledge in dire circumstances and proving that education can cut through poverty and prejudice to bring about equality and respect. Told with an intimate weaving of video footage and digital photographs taken by the film team and the young women, Graceland Girls shows a generation full of beautiful, bright minds with a hope for the future.

  • Middle of Nowhere

    3/23/13
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Middle of Nowhere. Ruby, a young lonely nurse, makes the drastic decision to drop out of medical school when her husband Derek is incarcerated for eight years. Unquestionably, Ruby dedicates herself to Derek, taking the bus on a regular basis out to the prison where he is being detained. In the process of focusing all her attention on her husband, Ruby goes on a journey of self-discovery, uncovering strength and faithfulness in the darkest of times. Hailed as a "plaintive, slow-boiling, quietly soul-stirring drama" by The New York Times, this powerful film garnered Ava DuVernay the director award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the first African-American woman to win the prize.

  • Emergency

    3/23/13
    8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Cutler Majestic Theatre
    See artsemerson.org for ticket pricing information

    ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage presents Emergency. A slave ship has just mysteriously emerged in front of the Statue of Liberty, sending New York City into a whirl of emotion and self-examination. Daniel Beaty portrays a cast of 40 characters in this explosive and funny tour-de-force featuring slam poetry, multi-character transformation and song. Seen through the lens of a single family at the center of the maelstrom, Beaty delightfully teases out his tale with the colorful commentary of neighbors and bystanders. Through their responses to this surreal happening and their varied testimonies on identity and personal freedom, Emergency weaves a stirring commentary on what it is to be human and the longing to be free.
