BANGSOKOL: A REQUIEM FOR CAMBODIA

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 15:36:13 EST

 Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia is an extraordinary new composition fusing music, film, voice and movement. It is the first major symphonic work that addresses the traumas that occurred in Cambodia in the late seventies, and is the first collaboration between the Oscar-nominated director Rithy Panh and lauded composer Him Sophy — both survivors of the Khmer Rouge and now at the forefront of Cambodia's cultural renaissance. Anchored in "bangsokol" — a ritual for the dead or soon to be deceased — the performance intertwines traditional Khmer instruments with The Metropolis Ensemble orchestra and the Taipei Philharmonic Chamber Choir. All together, they create something innately Cambodian but relatable to audiences everywhere.Bangsokol is an act of cultural renewal, aiming to return the arts to their place at the heart of Cambodian society. While the world continues to witness new genocides, wars and destruction, Bangsokol urges us to express our scars from the past in order to forge a new path forward."Acts as protection for something fragile and yet irreducibly important: the link between people and its history." – Van MagazinePurchase 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.

"The Other Body and Art-a-bility" Lecture by Nataly Zukerman

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 14:01:36 EST

In this presentation, Nataly Zukerman will draw from part of her current performance The Other Body and lecture about her unseen disability, her personal and artistic path to publicly own the definition disabled, and how the Israeli society (and the Israeli art world / Israeli theatre scene in particular) secretly excludes disabled people and artists.Nataly Zukerman is an independent performance artist who makes autobiographical work in the field of disability arts. At the age of 12 she was severely injured at a youth camp and suffered from a severe neural back injury. Today her disability is almost invisible and she does not fulfill the stereotype of a handicapped woman, creating a dissonance between the physical visibility and her internal experience. Amongst the works she created and performed in are Practice Makes Perfect for which she won best performer at the Acco Festival of Alternative Israeli Theatre in 2015 and The Other Body for which she won best performer at the Israeli fringe awards 2014 (created together with Atalia Branzburg). Zukerman is also a freelance dramaturge, a lecturer in various programs for children and adults, and is one of the initiators and artistic directors of Talooy Bamakom, a site specific festival. She holds a BA in education and directing from The Kibbutzim College of Education, a BA (with Honors) in Performance from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and an MFA in theater studies from Tel Aviv University.
