Dominic Willsdon to Present Diverse Discourse Lecture CURATING AND THE CRISIS OF THE PUBLIC 11/30
by BWW News Desk - Nov 27, 2016

Curating is the task of making art public. It may entail producing exhibitions, but also performances and collective actions, talks and discussions, screenings, classes and workshops, media content and books. But how is it possible to make art public in a time and a place when the very idea of the public is broken? Dominic Willsdon will address this question with reference to curatorial projects he has collaborated to produce — in Brazil, England, South Africa and the United States. He will draw on ideas collected in his book Public Servants: Art and The Crisis of the Common Good, co-edited with Johanna Burton and Shannon Jackson, which is published this month.

BWW Review: THE CHILDREN, Royal Court, 24 November 2016
by Alexandra Coghlan - Nov 25, 2016

Three sixty-something retired scientists talk to one another in a remote seaside cottage for two hours. It doesn't sound like theatrical gold, but in Lucy Kirkwood's deft hands, an unassuming premise becomes transformed by a quiet dramatic alchemy. The Children isn't a play that shouts, but it's one whose whispers carry far and linger even longer - a warm, funny and devastating portrait of the end of the world as we know it. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Nov 11, 2016

SACRED, a feature-length documentary that explores religious ritual at birth, adolescence, marriage, aging and other key milestones of human life, premieres at three major film festivals in November: the Tokyo International Film Festival, the prestigious DOC NYC festival in New York, and the IDFA film festival in Amsterdam. SACRED is an experiment: a sweeping global film for which the director, Academy Award® winner Thomas Lennon, never once left his office in New York, instead commissioning or sourcing contributions from top international filmmakers in order to capture more than 40 diverse stories dispersed across the globe. Sweeping in its global reach, yet intensely intimate, the film is a tour de force that unifies these disparate scenes into a single work, told without narration, without experts and, for long stretches, without words at all.  (more...)

BWW Feature: CATASTROPHIC THINKING by Carol Metcalf
by Maggie Yates - Nov 11, 2016

Everyone can relate to disaster. If drama is conflict, then calamity is the seed of all good plays. Sometimes disaster takes people by surprise, like an earthquake. In these cases, drama is concerned with the aftermath of The Crisis and society's response. In cases where the disaster is inevitable, drama's focus can shift to society's response to anticipation. Local comedienne Carol Metcalf explores another narrative option in her new one-woman show, 'Catastrophic Thinking.' (more...)

Theater For The New City To Present THE FACULTY ROOM
by BWW News Desk - Mar 8, 2017

Baby Boomers had nuclear air raid drills in school that stamped their souls with the realization that death is always close by.  Their children now have lockdown drills, rehearsing what to do when a shooter is on the loose in the school.  A nuclear attack never materialized (at least, not yet), but the present generation has Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech and a host of other massacres to remind them of their own mortality. The hard lockdown--when an imminent danger is known--is an unforgettable rite of passage for many people, and it is the setting of 'The Faculty Room,' the newest play by William Electric Black that is the fourth in his GUNPLAYS series.  Theater for the New City will present its world premiere run April 13 to 30, directed by the author.
