Where Art Thou: Just Beat It Edition

Not exactly the Beat Generation.

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:

  • Tomorrow at 7 PM, head to Roone Auditorium for Chamak: Night at the Bazaar, a fabulous fashion show and performance hosted by CU’s Organization of Pakistani Students. Tickets $5 with CUID.
  • This Thursday through Saturday at 8 PM, NOMADS – Columbia’s group for student-written theater – presents The Other Side, a new play by Eden Gordon. It centers around the lives of Beat Generation writers Joyce Johnson and Elise Cowen. Tickets $5 with CUID.
  • Also Thursday through Saturday, CU’s Shakespeare and Shakespeare-adjacent troupe, KCST, presents Mourning Becomes Electra: A Eugene O’Neill play based on the Greek epic Oresteia. This postwar drama centers around Orin and Lavinia Mannon, a brother and sister seeking revenge on their mother for their father’s death. Free RSVP here.
  • Tired of all this drama? For a few laughs, come to Third Wheel Improv’s Saturday night show in Lerner, Third Wheel Gets Ghosted.

Off Campus:

  • This Monday, head to the NYPL on 5th avenue for The Language of Crises: a book talk with essayist Rebecca Solnit. Her new collection Call Them By Their True Names deals with “battles over meaning, place, language and belonging – pillars that define the crises of our time.” $25 rush rickets.
