Emerson Stage Presents: Incorruptible

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 11:36:29 EST

IncorruptibleDirected by Joe AntounRobert J. Orchard Stage at the Paramount CenterRecommended for ages 10+Priseaux, France, 1250 AD. A motley order of impoverished monks. The river flooded again last week. The chandler's shop just burned to the ground. The chapel roof caved in. Priseaux's patron relic saint ceased producing miracles years ago, driving away pilgriming peasants and their pennies to a rival monastery claiming miracles from the same saint. Hope rose with a promised tide-turning visit from the Pope, but he's a no-show. It's a Dark Ages disaster! With starvation looming, a larcenous, one-eyed minstrel with his wife (of sorts) shows the desperate monks a way out of bankruptcy, one that strains the very essence of church teachings. Incorruptible is a bone-tickling dark comedy that explores the fragility of faith in the face of survival, the slippery slope of temptation, spiritual vs. material ideals and this age-old ethical dilemma played out in today's news: do the ends justify the means?PerformancesThursday, October 19 - 8:00pmFriday, October 20 - 8:00pmSaturday, October 21 - 4:00pmSaturday, October 21 - 8:00pmSunday, October 22 - 2:00pm

Flow: Water, Life, Profit and Pollution in an Accidental Megacity

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 11:17:41 EST

In September 2017 the US was rocked by Hurricanes Irma, Maria and Nate bringing death, destruction and thirst to coastal communities on the Atlantic. News footage showed Americans forced to drink from creeks. Less visible in the news was the fact that a raging monsoon season had caused 4000 deaths in India and rendered 1 million people homeless and without drinking water in South Asia.As climate change and environmental pollution spoils the planet, developed countries like the US are disputing the value of science and belief, and withdrawing from global climate agreements. In Flow, I turn to Hindu notions of the sacred to suggest that modern capitalist economies transform our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation through harnessing water. Through scenes of hope and loss I attempt to remind us of the centrality of water, without which no life is possible.Speaker: Tulasi Srinivas is an associate professor of Anthropology at the Institute of Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies at Emerson College.

THE STATE OF SIEGE

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 14:43:14 EST

Written by Nobel Prize–winning author Albert Camus, staged by leading avant-garde French director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and produced by the celebrated Paris theatre company Théâtre de la Ville, The State of Siege is set to take the country by storm this fall on its first visit to the United States. The rarely staged work, penned in 1948, weaves a tale of paranoia, endurance and political struggle resulting in a dizzying modern metaphor. With a renowned ensemble working on an epic scale, The State of Siege (L'État de siège) explores how art can serve as a way to process – and to resist – human atrocities. What role can art play in the face of peril? Faced with imminent danger, can the human spirit remain focused on the beauty of life? "My stated purpose was to make our murmuring stages resound with the loud cries that have the power to subdue or to free multitudes of men." - Albert CamusPurchase Tickets »STUDENTS, FACULTY & STAFFFREE RUSH TICKETSEmerson students, faculty and staff can get one free ticket to any ArtsEmerson theatre performance, film screening or concert by presenting a valid Emerson College ID at the Box office two hours prior to an event.
