Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist Series presents Mowry Baden 2013-02-13 20:00:00
Description

Articulating an internal awareness of movement and posture has always been the most important element in Baden’s work. He has built harnesses, furniture, rooms, pathways and catwalks, all with the goal of impinging upon the viewer's movements and awakening a physical self-awareness that was previously unconscious. Baden tries to provoke a perceptual crisis that assaults the viewer’s confidence in the information that comes through the senses. His practice has always involved materials, just like any artist who makes objects. Ideally, however, he is less interested in the object than in the experience. He wants the viewer to enter the object (or the space) and have an experience that is visceral, internal, and sensorially cross-circuited.

Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE - PREVIEW: Reasons to be Pretty @8pm 2013-02-13 20:00:00
Description

Reasons to be Pretty
by Neil LaBute

Directed by Christine Willes

Why do we care about being pretty when "Love is blind, sh#*!head. It is."Reasons to be Pretty takes us up close and personal with four friends and two relationships in this Tony Award-nominated, blue-collar, black comedy. A master of contemporary, realistic, in-your-face and four-letter-friendly dialogue, Neil LaBute mines the humour and painful truths that lay between self-image and self-esteem in our beauty-obsessed society. 

"…Some of the freshest and most illuminating American dialogue to be heard anywhere these days.”  New York Times
