Where Art Thou: Greek Tragedy Edition
Written by Riva Weinstein
New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.
- Tuesday at 6 pm, see pianist and percussionist quartet Yarn/Wire at the Miller Theater. Described as “restlessly curious” (Time Out NY), Yarn/Wire will perform the US premiere of a work by the young, pioneering composer Catherine Lamb. Curvo totalitas is a 45-minute tour de force that seamlessly shifts perceptions, allowing the listener to get lost in its unique sound world.
- This Wednesday, March 7 in the Lerner Party Space, celebrate International Women’s Week with Columbia University HeForShe and KCST’s production of Electra. The play will run three times consecutively at 8, 9, and 10 pm. The minimum $5 donation goes to benefit UN Women and its Flagship Initiatives.
- Also on Wednesday, see Performing the Library: the Exhibit at 6 pm in Butler 301. The exhibit explores the stories, ideas, lives, and creative works bound together on pages in Butler Library. The works on display reflect student engagement with the library – all are a result of inspiration and reflection. Reserve your seat here.
- This Thursday, March 8, it’s time for the Antiquarian Book Fair at Park Avenue Armory! Over 200 American and international dealers will exhibit at the 58th Annual ABAA New York International Antiquarian Book Fair, bringing a vast selection of rare books, maps, manuscripts, illuminated manuscripts, and ephemera.
