BWW Review: Upstream Theater's Provocative A HUMAN BEING DIED THAT NIGHT
by Chris Gibson - May 20, 2017

It's uncanny the way that Upstream Theater is able to produce plays that consistently tackle issues that, while often international in scope, often resonate with situations we face in our own country and, in particular, the current political climate we find Ourselves in. A HUMAN BEING DIED THAT NIGHT is a very intriguing and powerful work by Nicholas Wright (adapted from a book by Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela) that focuses our attention on post-apartheid South Africa, and which delves into the institutionalized racism that gripped that area of the world for many, many years. It's a subject that it is abhorrent in nature, but one which we seem to see America headed toward with the rise of white nationalist actions and policies. The seeds seem to have been sown with the cultural backlash from certain quarters following the election of Barack Obama, our first African American president, and which are starting to become more dangerously vocal and violent since he left office and was replaced by our current president, who surrounds himself with people whose agendas and ideologies are in direct conflict with the progress that has occurred since the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's. This work, though it deals mainly with conciliatory efforts, is one that needs to be seen as a reminder that, if we are to continue to progress as an open society, we need to remain vigilant as citizens to ensure we do not take steps backwards in this regard. There's a lot to contemplate here, and this production is decidedly must-see theatre. (more...)

Yoga Lifestyles Hosts Instagram Challenge
by BWW News Desk - May 16, 2017

Yoga Lifestyles, an online health and wellness community, is hosting a challenge on Instagram to raise awareness for mental health and promote body positivity in light of Mental Health Awareness Month which lasts all through May. The challenge, called #InvertYourMindset calls on individuals to participate by taking a photo or video of a specific inversion - a yoga pose that places your hips above your heart, such as a headstand or handstand - and posting it on their Instagram page using the hashtag #InvertYourMindset in their caption. The challenge runs from May 15-June 12, and participants can join at any time until May 29 to qualify for the prizes which include yoga gear, organic essential oils and handcrafted yoga jewelry. 'One in every five individuals is clinically diagnosed with depression, anxiety or an eating disorder in their lifetime, and it's largely due to the media's unrealistic expectations of what beauty should look like,' said Melody Beuzelin, Yoga Lifestyles editor and creator of the challenge. 'The idea of this challenge is to 'turn this statistic upside down' by physically getting on our heads to get a new perspective of Ourselves, and tell the world 'I'm enough.' It's a great way to get the global community involved through social media and use its powers for good to raise awareness about an issue that affects either us or someone close to us, much like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.' Yoga Lifestyles will post daily graphics and instructional videos throughout the challenge to both motivate participants and give them a platform where they can connect with one another. To find out more details about the challenge, visit About Yoga Lifestyles Yoga Lifestyles is an empowering online community that celebrates individuality through yoga as a means of expression, vitality and an instrument for positive transformation.
