Australian Photographer, Daniel King Launches New Book, UKRAINE YOUTHAustralian Photographer, Daniel King Launches New Book, UKRAINE YOUTH
by BWW News Desk - Jan 26, 2015

Australian photographer Daniel King landed in Kiev, Ukraine, in the summer of 2013, just as the 'Rise up, Ukraine!' demonstrations, which had started in May, were beginning to shake the capital and the region. Instead of photographing the protests, King turned his camera on a group of Ukrainian teenagers and the architecture of the city they inhabited, meeting them in the streets, in their shared house, at the lake or drinKing in the public parks. He captured the nuances of their daily life together, one which was strangely unaltered by the monumental political events taKing place just a couple of blocks away from their gathering places. Ukraine Youth: Between Days, the photographer's first book, presents something unseen in the news-what it was like to grow up in Kiev for a generation living its last moments of carefree fun.

KAFKA'S QUEST to Run 2/26-3/15 at Theater for the New CityKAFKA'S QUEST to Run 2/26-3/15 at Theater for the New City
by BWW News Desk - Jan 26, 2015

'Kafka's Quest, a.k.a. Kafka/Samsa' is a quasi-realistic play by the late playwright Lu Hauser that imagines the family life of Gregor Samsa, the tragic victim of Kafka's 'Metamorphosis,' and his friendship with an historic Yiddish Theater actor and actress in Prague, prior to the events of the famed novella. Set in Prague in 1912, it portrays Gregor Samsa (the name Kafka personified himself with in the book) as torn between his father, who wants to keep him on the straight and narrow with a full time job, and his friendship with artists of the Yiddish Theater, who want him to join and write for them. His father's bankruptcy forces Gregor to become the breadwinner of the family, which has been forced to take in two mysterious lodgers to make ends meet. The back and forth between the two poles of Gregor's life will culminate in 'The Metamorphosis.' Theater for the New City will present the play's world premiere February 26 to March 15, directed by Manfred Bormann. (more...)
