  • Brazil

    2/08/13
    6:00 pm - 8:15 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Brazil. In this visually riveting, mentally stimulating dystopian masterpiece, bureaucrat Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) finds himself tangled in a complex web of deceit in which a series of terrorist bombings are falsely blamed on an innocent citizen rather than the actual terrorist (played by the brilliant Robert De Niro). In this futuristic, totalitarian society, Sam quickly goes from being a loyal citizen of his country to being deemed an enemy of the state. Channeling influences like George Orwell and Kurt Vonnegut, famed director Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) creates a frightening vision of a world gone wrong in an eerily realistic fashion that has been hailed as one of the best films of the 1980s.

  • What a Witch: A Queer Reading of Tales from the Brothers Grimm

    2/08/13
    7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
    216 Tremont
    Bill Bordy Theater

     Join EAGLE and Emerson's Writing, Literature, and Publishing department for a fantastic queer analysis of several Grimm Brothers fairytale witches with Dr. Kay Turner, author of the recent, "Transgressive Tales: Queering the Grimms."

    Using material from Transgressive Tales as a basis for reflection, she discusses queer witches in well-known Grimms' stories such as "Hansel and Gretel" and "Rapunzel," and also introduces the witch figure in more obscure tales such as "Frau Trude," "The Three Spinners," and "Mother Holle." Turner makes the case that many of the Grimms' stories are worthy of queer analysis in the way they reveal non-normative modes of desire, sexuality and kinship. She contextualizes her presentation with a brief overview of the Grimms' story collecting and editing project and a gloss on relevant works of both fairy tale theorists and queer scholars, including Eve Sedwick, Carolyn Dinshaw, Kathryn Bond Stockton, Kay Stone, and Jack Zipes. Turner is known for her exciting and provocative lysis.

    MORE ABOUT KAY TURNER:
    Dr. Kay Turner holds a PhD in Folklore and Anthropology from the University of Texas, Austin, and she teaches courses on gender, queer theory, and oral narrative theory in the Performance Studies Graduate Program at New York University. Her past publications include Beautiful Necessity: The Art and Meaning of Women's Altars (Thames and Hudson) and Baby Precious Always Shines (St. Martin's Press), a selection of love notes written between Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. Turner also works as the folklorist for the borough Brooklyn based at the Brooklyn Arts Council.

    8:00 pm - 10:45 pm
    Paramount Center
    Paramount Center Mainstage
    See artsemerson.org for ticket pricing information

     ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Servant of Two Masters. Identities are mistaken, engagements are broken and lovers are reunited in Carlo Goldoni's commedia dell'arte masterpiece. Mayhem erupts when the wily—and chronically hungry—servant Truffaldino (played by acclaimed actor Steven Epp) hatches a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once. The virtuosic physical comedy of The Servant of Two Masters is directed by Christopher Bayes, whose hilarious choreography is featured in the hit stage production of Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps.

  • Zabriskie Point

    2/08/13
    9:00 pm - 10:45 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Zabriskie Point. Following one of the student protests during the 1960s, a young man steals an airplane and flies off into the desert. Unexpectedly, he meets a fellow traveler on the journey and ends up falling in love with her. In this idyllic tale of self-discovery, growing pains and young love, Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni makes his only American film, providing a unique outsider's perspective on the turbulent 1960s and the generation wanting to form its own sort of utopia.
