Where Art Thou?

He asks: What is art?

It’s that time of the week when you’re busy with work and are looking for something to distract yourself—oh wait, that’s almost every day. Regardless, plan your second half of the week with Bwog’s Kyra Bloom, a true cultural connoisseur. As always, email events@bwog.com if you know of arts-related happenings on and around campus.

Thursday

  • The Barnard Project at New York Live Arts begins, at 7:30 pm.  University students have participated in a semester-long residency program, collaborating with professional dancers and choreographers.  One of the most exciting dance events of the year for just $12 for students.
  • CMTS’s exciting production of HAIR opens.  The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical has three performances: Thursday at 8 pm, Friday at 8 pm, and Sunday at 2 pm.  Tickets are $5 with CUID, but if you’re a high-roller, you can pay more for priority, or even VIP, seating.
  • Come support the Barnard Beauties of Bacchantae by going to their All-You-Can-Eat Dumpling Extravaganza. Literally, all you can eat for $7 at the door.  Diana Center, Second Floor from 6-8 pm.  Hot tea will also be provided.
  • Carnegie Hall presents Pierre-Laurent Aimard playing Debussy’s Preludes, Book 2, as well as some Schumann and Holliger.  An incredible $11 with CUID at 8 pm in Isaac Stern Auditorium.  Location information on the TIC website is incorrect, so be sure to clarify when getting your ticket!
  • Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00 pm King’s Crown Shakespeare Troupe presents “Romeo and Juliet” in the Glicker-Milstein Theatre! Currently sold out (congrats, guys!), but come early and add your name to the wait list if you didn’t get a ticket.

Friday

  • CU Players presents An Evening of One Acts.  The evening is comprised of Medea by Wendy Wasserstein and Christopher Durang, Post-It (Notes on a Marriage by Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman, and This Is A Play by Daniel McIvor.  Shows are Friday at 10 pm and Saturday at 7 and 10 pm.  Three completely different shows for free with CUID.
  • Youth for Debate branches away from intellectual matters and hosts their annual free arts event: Sing Out, Speak Up. On Friday at 7:30 pm, groups including CU Raas, Fruit Paunch, Gospel Choir, Uptown Vocal, and the Metrotones will perform to support teaching public speaking and debate in NYC public schools. There are also rumors of free pizza.

Saturday

  • “Submissions: A Reading” in the Diana Dining Room at 8 pm. Described on the Facebook group as a “posh, free reading of campus playwrights,” this event’s description is minimalist, but classy.  Dress nicely, because “hors d’oeuvres will be served.” No more incentive should be necessary.

  • Teddy Roosevelt says:

    @Teddy Roosevelt We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people

  • BarnardInternationalArtistsSeries says:

    @BarnardInternationalArtistsSeries Also on Thursday night is the first event of the Barnard International Artists Series, which will be a film screening of 5+5 followed by a discussion with the filmmakers, at 6:30pm in the Diana Event Oval. There will be snacks!

      @Kyra Thanks, Jessie! R & J is in my original list, but I think I deleted accidentally when I put it on Bwog!
