Where Art Thou: Weekday Edition
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.
- Tuesday at 6:30, join the University Life Events Council for the CU Films Showcase, a screening of original short films by CC, GSAS, and CUIMC students. The screening is free with CUID and will take place in 511 Dodge.
- Wednesday at 8 and 9 PM, head to the Glicker-Milstein theater for KCST’s special project, Arden of Faversham. In this short Elizabethan play, possibly attributed to Shakespeare, a Kentian gentleman is “most wickedlye murdered by the meanes of his disloyall and wanton wife.” Reserve tickets free.
- While you’re in the Glicker-Milstein, you may as well hang around for Thursday night’s staged reading of NOMADS’ Lucky, an original play by Phanesia Pharel (BC ’21). Inspired by the physicalities of the Caribbean diaspora, Pharel’s play tells the story of people working on a tourist island, and a woman who begins to write when she needs healing. Come early to get off the waitlist.
- Wednesday at 8, head downtown to the Brotherhood Synagogue for Alessandro Stradella’s Ester, a “violent and volatile” composer’s take on the tale of the ancient Hebrew queen. This is the oratorio’s first New York performance over 30 years. Student tickets $20.
- Thursday, March 14 at 6:30 PM, anthropologist Esther Newton comes to Performance Studies @ NYU for a reading from her new memoir, My Butch Career. Followed by a discussion moderated by Anthropology professor Faye Ginsburg.
