Talk | Professional artists talk about their work


Today: Tony Oursler is an American artist born in 1957. He truly revolutionized certain aspects of projection by supressing the frame of the screen. Oursler uses different mediums such as video, film, photography, handmade objects, sculpture, computers, the web, and also elaborate soundtracks. Noise, image, and light are important devices composing the artist’s work. The visual sensations of the viewer are heightened as the artist ingenuously occupies the space with these projections (characters hidden under the stairs, projections of faces on clouds of smoke and trees in the middle of New York).

Play | Sophocles's Antigone: Modern Re-Imagining of the Classic Greek Drama


Set in the city of Thebes in a dystopian future, the struggle for power, glory and the claim to the city shatters the bonds of brotherhood, leaving two men lifeless. The new king proclaims one brother a hero and the other a usurper, leaving his limp body lying in the street as an example to those who dare act against the state. The citizens of the city avert their eyes due to fear, turning instead to their new leader who vows to restore order to the war torn city. But when the sister of the slain young brothers protests the edict, she breaks faith with everything she has ever known in order to set things right at any cost. Calling on the cultural landscape of African-American traditions, while adhering to the Greek tragic form; this fresh reimagining of the classic story will captivate, stun and inspire audiences from all backgrounds. The Classical Theatre of Harlem's production is inspired by the Paul Roche adaptation which accomplishes a fidelity to the original while giving CTH the flexibility to showcase ancient ideas that have taken center stage in the current climate: order, law, justice and marginalized voices confronting power and patriarchy.
