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.
Next Friday, Feb. 8 at 4 PM, BCRW collaborates with the Barnard College Archives to bring you this year’s Scholar and Feminist Conference: The Politics and Ethics of Archives. Artists, archivists, librarians, activists and scholars will come together to discuss how to create an “archive of engagement”, and how to handle the political and ethical questions involved in the re-appropriation of the past. Check out the Facebook page for the lineup of events and speakers.
This Saturday, check out a style of music you may not have heard before: Indo-jazz fusion with elements of rock and bebop. Rudresh Mahanthappa’s eclectic Indo-Pak Coalition is performing at 8 PM in the Miller Theater. Tickets from $20.
Also at 8 PM on the 2nd, local Columbia comedy group Fruit Paunch invites you down to Lerner Black Box for a “fun, fresh, and funky night of improv.” Wish them happy birthday while you’re there.
Remember the Stinky Cheese Man from your childhood? Remember thinking to yourself, “This is great, but it would be better as a play?” The wait is over. See The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales tomorrow at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center. Tickets $30.
On Tuesday, the Asia Society presents “The King and I” Meets “Soft Power,” a discussion with professor and playwright David Henry Hwang and director Bartlett Sher on current American musical theater, with a focus on Asian-themed musicals like The King and I. Tickets $25.
