Intime presents The Luck of the Irish

In mid-twentieth century America, a black family can only buy the house of their dreams if their name is not on the title. The choices they make in search of a better life still echo fifty years later as their family must continue to tackle questions of ownership, "the order of things" and what it takes to belong.

Where Shadow Chases Light

From Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian's Native American-inspired contemporary piece to the thrilling power of a György Orbán mass to the intimate sweetness of an Eric Whitacre love song, it takes a special kind of musician—or, in this case five—to tackle the challenging and varied program put together by Melodia Artistic Director Cynthia Powell for Where Shadow Chases Light this fall season.

Jill Sigman '89 *98 presents "This is where we are"

to Oct 20

Jill Sigman '89 *98 presents "This is where we are"   

Jill Sigman '89 *98 presents "This is where we are"     

In a work part improvised, part choreographed, part movement, part dialogue, Sigman tackles the difficult questions. Without trying to find solutions, agreement, or even closure, she brings together a group of fascinating dancers with diverse histories to explore the predicaments of this volatile moment. As a micro “body politic” they process questions around inflammation and healing, defense and protection, identity and assumption, contamination, epigenetics, and where we are headed. Their movement explorations have been informed by conversations with practitioners working in racial pharmacology, forest fire, trauma psychology, medicine, domestic violence, and multiple spiritual traditions.
 
This piece is about the people who perform it. The cast is an extraordinary group of dancers who differ in age, race, disability status, and gender identity, who come from different parts of the world and carry different histories of dance in their bodies. We have come together in discussion and movement to explore ways that American society is currently in need of healing and to dance together in a landscape of our different perspectives. The process is more dialogical than dialectical. Performers include Lorene Bouboushian, iele paloumpis, Evelyn Sanchez Narvaez, Jill Sigman, Charmaine Warren, Krishna Washburn, and Marýa Wethers.

Oct 18, 19, and 20, from 8 - 9:30pm  The Black Box at GIBNEY 280 BROADWAY 280 BROADWAY, NY, NY , 10007  (enter at 53A CHAMBERS STREET)

Robertson '15's MADMAN is a Festival Bestseller, Adds Third Show Oct. 17         

Robertson '15's MADMAN is a Festival Bestseller, Adds Third Show Oct. 17           

After selling out our first two shows, MADMAN, officially a United Solo Festival Bestseller, has added a third show on October 17th at 9pm!
 
A reinvention of my 2015 Princeton thesis, MADMAN follows Jake, a closeted gay kid in smalltown America, who runs away into the pages of a magic Russian book. It's a story where pain runs headfirst into laughter, where love is married to lies and where absurdity is vigorously making out with reality.
 
I'd be honored to have my Princeton family see this deeply personal piece of theater!"

"Eulalia: A Bedtime Story" at FringeNYC, written and performed by Sarah Cuneo '15 and directed by Brad Wilson '13   

"Eulalia: A Bedtime Story"", a one-woman show adapted from the writings of the Infanta Eulalia of Spain, will have its world premiere at the New York International Fringe Festival this October. Written and performed by Sarah Cuneo ’15 and directed by Brad Wilson ‘13, Eulalia: A Bedtime Story will run for five performances, October 12-22.
What if moving forward meant losing what you love? Using toys, humor, and fairytale tropes, ""Eulalia: A Bedtime Story"" tells the tragic, true story of a Spanish princess’ struggle for freedom. Life isn’t a fairytale, and sometimes the princess has to save herself.
""Eulalia: A Bedtime Story"" is a play about motherhood, authenticity, and sacrifice. Above all, it's a play about a woman: a real woman who lived, suffered, and fought fiercely for joy. Eulalia was
a brilliant mind many decades ahead of her time, but her story has been all but lost to history. Come get to know Eulalia – we really think you'll like her.

The Daerie Queene - A New Play

The Daerie Queene - A New Play

The Daerie Queene - A New Play           

Hours after their father passes away, Cara Sullivan and her flaky brother, Pete, try to navigate the uncharted task of planning their fathers funeral. Along the way they are met by an unruly cast of characters that you only find upon returning home: the ex-lover, the hot Tinder date, and the overly optimistic funeral director. With each farcical step toward the final resting place, Cara and Pete struggle to honor their father without putting the last nail in the coffin of their tenuous relationship. As each character deals with loss in their own way, The Daerie Queene explores the hilarity in grief and promises to keep the audience laughing to the end.
 
As a short one act play, The Daerie Queene was workshopped at Dixon Place in October 2017. Following this workshop, it was selected for the 2017 Spring One Act Festival at The Manhattan Repertory Theatre where it was awarded Best Play.
 
Written by Savannah Hankinson '13  Directed by Daniel Rattner '13 Featuring Holly Linneman '13 and Savannah Hankinson '13

October 3, 2018 at 6:30 pm
​​​​​​​The Rubin Museum of Art, 150 W 17th St, New York, NY 10011

Ann returns to the Rubin Museum in NYC to talk about her experience of illness as a Tibetan “bardo” intermediate state, how wisdom from her Tibetan family helped her survive, and the relevance of The Tibetan Book of the Dead to our everyday lives. Ann will read from "Traveling in Bardo," her AGNI Magazine essay about a near-fatal illness as a journey through bardo (http://www.bu.edu/agni/essays/print/2017/86-slater.html).

The event will include a bound copy of the essay to each ticket holder, with a signing after the program.

Ann’s recent publications include "Teatime in Darjeeling," a Tin House essay about reconnecting to her Tibetan roots (https://tinhouse.com/teatime-in-darjeeling/).

On 10/6, she will take part in the "Personal Identity in an Intersectional World" panel at the "She Roars: Celebrating Women at Princeton" conference (https://sheroars.princeton.edu/speaker/ann-tashi-slater-84/).

Is a career really the only reason why a woman should freeze her eggs? The answer to this question is what makes It's Freezing Out There, a new web series out today, so refreshing. Its creator, Pepper Binkley, smartly upends the trope of a professional woman freezing her eggs to "get ahead," instead emphasizing why even those of us still figuring thing out ought to be thinking about biological clocks." - Jeva Lange "The Week" Also linked and liked by Lenny Letter and others.

A reinvention of my 2015 Princeton thesis, MADMAN tells the story of a 14-year-old gay kid in smalltown America, who runs away into the pages of a Russian short story, but finds he cannot outrun himself.

I’m thrilled to present this work in New York at the world’s largest solo festival. I decided to do it not just for myself, but for the kid I used to be and for kids like him, who are struggling to escape from who they are. It’s for people who find solace in the pages of their favorite books, for anyone who's read a story and found themselves lurking in its chapters. This is a story where pain runs headfirst into laughter, where love is married to lies and where absurdity is vigorously making out with reality.

I'd be honored to have my Princeton family see this deeply personal piece of theater!
