Scenes and Symbols: Artworks from China, Korea, and Japan

Scenes and Symbols: Artworks from China, Korea, and Japan

The art of China, Korea, and Japan is filled with elements that hold deep meaning. Whether a painted lotus flower, or beautiful ink script, the images show us the importance that history, culture, and ritual hold in this part of the world. This exhibition hopes to celebrate the impact Asian art has had on personal and cultural attempts to make meaning in what can seem like a shallow world.

Sarah Ruhl's THE CLEAN HOUSE

Sarah Ruhl's THE CLEAN HOUSE

Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre presents THE CLEAN HOUSE by Sarah Ruhl Directed by Sara Katzoff The play takes place in what the author describes as "metaphysical Connecticut," mostly in the home of a married couple who are both doctors. They have hired a housekeeper named Matilde, an aspiring comedian from Brazil who's more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than in house-cleaning. Lane, the lady of the house, has an eccentric sister named Virginia who's just nuts about house-cleaning. She and Matilde become fast friends, and Virginia takes over the cleaning while Matilde works on her jokes. Trouble comes when Lane's husband Charles reveals that he has found his soul mate, or "bashert" in a cancer patient named Anna, on whom he has operated. The actors who play Charles and Anna also play Matilde's parents in a series of dream-like memories, as we learn the story about how they literally killed each other with laughter, giving new meaning to the phrase, "I almost died laughing." This theatrical and wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy and the true nature of love. FREE Admission

Eugène Ionesco's RHINOCEROS

Eugène Ionesco's RHINOCEROS

Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre presents RHINOCEROS by Eugène Ionesco Translated by Martin Crimp Directed by Clay Hopper The sublime is confused with the ridiculous in this savage commentary on the human condition, a staple of every theatre classroom and of 20th century drama. A small town is besieged by one roaring citizen who becomes a rhinoceros and proceeds to trample on the social order. As more citizens are transformed into rhinoceroses, the trampling becomes overwhelming, and more and more citizens become rhinoceroses. One sane man, Berenger, remains, unable to change his form and identity. $15 General Admission $10 BU Alumni $7.50 with CFA Membership Free with BU ID, at the door, day of performance, subject to availability

Border Crossing: Immigrant Narratives in Speculative Fiction

Border Crossing: Immigrant Narratives in Speculative Fiction

Speculative fiction is the genre of migrants, refugees, and those that move between the borders of what is known and unknown. In this one-day course, we will examine what happens to characters and narratives that exist in this "in between". Through in-class writing exercises and readings, we will discuss and discover the journeys our characters take and why they are meaningful. Examining writers like Octavia Butler, Ken Liu, Liz Hand, and Carmen Maria Machado, we will ask ourselves: what happens when we cross a border? Are we still in our bodies, are we still ourselves? Or do we become a new species, forever stuck in the liminal spaces that are not one thing or the other but both and neither?
