Tour | Rome: The Colosseum (virtual, live stream)


If you come to Rome, you can't miss the Colosseum. It is one of the most, if not the most, iconic Roman monuments still standing today. On this tour with Sara, you will focus on the history and archaeology of the spectacular amphitheatre, also known as the Flavian amphitheatre. Built in 72 a.d by the Flavian family and completed in only 8 years by the Jewish slaves, it was a real stadium dedicated to the gladiatorial fights, animal hunts and public executions. Although it is not possible to go inside of the Colosseum, Sara will show you this main symbol of Rome and its imposing construction that, with almost 2,000 years of history, will bring you back in time to discover the way of life in the Roman Empire.

Discussion | Community Conversation: Dreaming the Future (Zoom)


As we head into the summer, the pressure and urgency to reopen are overshadowing much of the hard work, learning, and movement for change brought by this year of pause due to the global crisis. Take a moment to push against urgency and instead breathe through this moment together. What have we gained over this past year? What have we learned? Is there anything you've learned that you want to hold onto as gathering continues to become possible? Further, what are the habits you want to leave behind? How are we going to evolve as reopening settles upon us, instead of remaining in stagnation?

Discussion | The Creative Process (virtual)


Actor, director, producer, and activist Robert Hooks and the late Douglas Turner Ward, producer, director, playwright, and actor, discuss their work founding the Negro Ensemble Company (NEC) in 1966, its rise to prominence, the controversies encountered through the years, and the group's struggle for survival. The Negro Ensemble Company originated important plays including Ceremonies in Dark Old Men, The River Niger, Zooman and the Sign, A Soldier's Play, and Home, and helped to launch the careers of Debbie Allen, Angela Bassett, Adolph Caesar, Laurence Fishburne, Danny Glover, Louis Gossett, Jr., David Alan Grier, Samuel L. Jackson, S. Epatha Merkerson, Phylicia Rashad, Esther Rolle, and Denzel Washington, among many others. This video recording produced by the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive was originally recorded on April 27, 1987 to mark the 20th anniversary of the founding of the NEC. It is presented here online for the first time in honor of Douglas Turner Ward, who passed away at the age of 90 earlier this year on February 20, 2021.

Author Reading | The Daring Life and Dangerous Times of Eve Adams (virtual)


Eve Adams was a rebel. Born Chawa Zloczewer to a Jewish family in Poland, Adams emigrated to the United States in 1912. She took a new name, befriended anarchists, sold radical publications, and ran lesbian and gay-friendly speakeasies in Chicago and Greenwich Village. Then, in 1925, Adams risked all to write and publish a book titled Lesbian Love. In a repressive era, when American women had just gained the right to vote, Adams’s association with notorious anarchists caught the attention of the young J. Edgar Hoover and the U.S. Bureau of Investigation, leading to her surveillance, arrest, and ultimate deportation into the Nazis’ reign of terror, where she was sent to Auschwitz and killed. In The Daring Life and Dangerous Times of Eve Adams, historian Jonathan Ned Katz has recovered the extraordinary story of Adams, and will share his research and what went into the first biography of Adams.

Classical Music | Rising from the Ashes of Plague: Italian Violin Sonatas and Canzonas from the Early 17th Century (virtual)


Sylvia Schwartz, Baroque violin; John Ott, viola da gamba Venice, 1630: Thanks to Silk Road prosperity and movable type for music, musicians are flourishing with new independence, gigging and publishing their compositions for money. Three enterprising young musicians have forged a new instrumental form, the sonata, inspired by the vocal canzonas of generations before them. Suddenly, plague rips through, cutting two down in their promising prime. Join this evening to hear their fresh ideas, and the sonata expansions and developments of their surviving colleagues.

Author Reading | We Are Each Other's Harvest: Voices of Black Farmers (virtual)


In this impressive anthology, Natalie Baszile brings together essays, poems, photographs, quotes, conversations, and first-person stories to examine black people's connection to the American land from Emancipation to today. In the 1920s, there were over one million black farmers; today there are just 45,000. Baszile explores this crisis, through the farmers' personal experiences. In their own words, middle aged and elderly black farmers explain why they continue to farm despite systemic discrimination and land loss.

Performance | Unfuckwithable: A Cross-Country Road Trip (virtual)


In a society where a chasm has opened up between rich and poor — one Black girl has fallen into the abyss. As a result, Girl embarks on a cross-country road trip in a converted Van: by day she’s lifestyle blogging as a #VanLife influencer, and by night she’s shooting down Amazon delivery drones to loot the contents — desperate to claw her way into American prosperity. But when she shoots down something she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to reckon with the cost of her ambition. She may be able to run from society, but she can’t escape the systems that are ingrained within her.  Written by Eliana Pipes Directed by Cristina Angeles

Staged Reading | Volpone, Or The Fox: Satire of Greed and Lust (virtual)


Meet Volpone, the rich old magnifico, whose ingenious schemes and farcical scams dupe his wealthy friends into showering him with gold. This feast of extraordinary language and outrageous characters is a merciless satire that delightfully skewers the selfish manipulations of hypocrites--without excusing the greed and gullibility of their victims. Against scoundrels cloaked in propriety and legal dodgings, the virtuous are practically defenseless--and even the judge is on the make. Is Volpone the sly fox...or the outfoxed? Directed by Jesse Berger Volpone (Italian for "sly fox") was writted by English playwright Ben Jonson, first produced in 1605-1606. A merciless satire of greed and lust, it remains Jonson's most-performed play, and it is ranked among the finest Jacobean era comedies.

Although there are widespread iconographic sources of lutes in paintings from 17thcentury Netherlands, until now, no lute music from the Dutch Baroque was known to have survived. This music therefore represents a new composer and a new genre: Dutch Baroque lute music.
