Film "Something in the Air" / "Apres Mai" 2013-07-10 19:00:00



Director: Olivier Assayas  

France, 2012, 122 min; French with subtitles


A loosely autobiographical coming-of-age story that combines the artistic, sexual and political yearnings of a group of young people in 1971 Paris with the still-fiery aftermath of May 1968. Nostalgic without being at all sentimental, Something in the Air burns with the passion of youth, when limitless possibilities and confusion hold equal sway. Gilles (Clément Metayer), is a 17-year-old Parisian student trying to reconcile his left-wing activism with his artistic endeavours. When he meets the political firebrand Christine (Lola Créton), he sees a kindred spirit and the two become a couple. When summer arrives, the two of them join a group of friends for an Italian sojourn filled with luxuriant parties and fierce political debate.–Vancouver International Film Festival

Music PAT BENATAR & NEIL GIRALDO 2013-07-10 19:30:00

Pat Benatar has always been a rule-breaker and a trail-blazer, and now after more than three decades in rock 'n' roll, she's a bonafide living legend. Songs like Love is a Battlefield, Hit Me with Your Best Shot, and We Belong are as unforgettable now as they were at the dawn of MTV, when Pat emerged, fearless, fighting and forging a path for other female rock stars around the world.

Neil "Spyder" James Giraldo has been a professional musician, producer, arranger and songwriter for over four decades now, changing the face of the pop charts throughout the 1980s with his collaborator, muse and wife, Pat Benatar. More than just an explosive steel-bending guitar player, Giraldo's innovative vision helped him create the signature Benatar sound, from its inception.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Summer Lectures 2013 - On the Concept of the Face: Regarding the Son of God - Contemporary Theatre and the Secular Moment 2013-07-10 10:30:00

CSRS Summer Lectures 2013

Lecture 2 of 3 -

On the Concept of the Face: Regarding the Son of God - Contemporary Theatre and the Secular Moment
Megan Macdonald, University of London, CSRS Visiting Research Fellow

This talk discusses a piece of controversial theatre from the Italian company Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio in which the treatment of a painting of Jesus during the performance became the focus of protests. Subsequent reviews of the performance highlight a lack of knowledge about the history and influence of Christianity on Western culture. While religious and spiritual themes abound in contemporary Western performances, reviews of the play suggest there is no consensus on what they mean. One way to think about what is happening in this piece of theatre (and in the controversies around the play) is through a reflection on notions of secularism. The theatre has long been seen as a secular space, yet it is clearly far from being comfortable with overtly religious themes and imagery.

Megan Macdonald researches contemporary theatre, performance and rituals. She has published on the performance of belief, performance art and liturgy, and theatre in the public sphere. She has taught at the University of London, UK, and the University of Ottawa.
