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. On Campus:
The Hindu festival of Navaratri starts this weekend! At 8 PM tonight, Hindu Students Organization invites everyone to Low Library to learn about Navaratri – an evening of free Indian dinner, music and Garba dance. Free RSVP through Eventbrite.
Katherine Wilkinson’s directing thesis LORDES premieres Wednesday through Saturday at the Lenfest Center for the Arts. Inspired by the work of feminist writer Audre Lorde, an ensemble of 50 women relive Lorde’s battle through her final poem. Free tickets for CUID holders with code AUDRE.
This Thursday through Saturday, check out CU Players’ The Great Gatsby in the Glicker-Milstein Theater. Adapted by Simon Levy from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel – it’s bound to be more interesting than your high school English class. Tickets $6.50 with CUID.
