Unweave The Core Right Now

odysseus-leaves-circe-800The art installation-cum-creative Odyssey interpretation Unweaving the Core is taking place in Hamilton Hall from 6:00-8:30 pm TONIGHT. Attendance is free and no RSVP is required, so you really don’t have any excuse not to take advantage of what promises to be a downright snazzy and edifying event.

The performance promises to join Lit Hum texts with original student artwork and poetry to create a Romare Bearden-inspired cultural experience spanning multiple spaces in Hamilton. From the event description:

Romare Bearden’s collages and Penelope’s unweaving in The Odyssey offer students exciting models for how to “unweave” the Core and amplify the voices of those marginalized because of race or gender. The Unweaving the Core installation will create a new artistic tapestry with marginalized voices at the core of the canon, encouraging students to think creatively about the relationship between Homer and Harlem.

…[T]he installation will feature new student writing, art, music, and puppetry, as well as a performance of The Odyssey interwoven with other texts including narratives by people who were enslaved, war poetry, stories about migration, and other works from the Lit Hum syllabus and beyond.
