October 2016: Three Sisters

The Prozorov sisters yearn to go to Moscow.  But is it the distance of Moscow, or the bland predictability of life in provincial Russia that challenges them the most?  Chekhov is universally admired for his rich portraits of everyday people trying to make sense of everyday questions, and in this-one of his finest works-we see his eye for human detail in fine form.

Filled with insight, humor, grit and melancholy, The Three Sisters earns its reputation as one of the most notable plays in modern drama.

November 2016: Our Howl

Our Howl  -    Language, Dance and Movement of Meaning

In the groundbreaking poem Howl (1955), Allen Ginsberg gave voice to a generation stifled by the conformism of mid-century industrial capitalism. With its emphasis on the sanctity of the body, Howl invites us to explore new corporeal expressions and meanings. For our fall dance concert, we will draw upon and embark from key themes in Howl, including the intersection of language and the body. Yet Our Howl will feature utterly new utterances and movements, and will include a piece by New York choreographer, Ben Munisteri, whose work is set to Ariel's Full Fathom Five, from Shakespeare's The Tempest; a collaboration between the Exiled Poets and Hypnotic, ASL students and...; as well as a performance by Sarah Skaggs in connection with Patti Smith's musical rendition of the "Footnote to Howl."

Friday, November 18 | 8:00 p.m.
