Concert | Choral Marx: Manifesto for the Communist Party in Eight Movements


Choral Marx is a singing adaptation of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels’s Manifesto for the Communist Party composed by Ethan Philbrick. It is a piece for mixed chorus—mixed not just in terms of gendered voice parts but also in terms of training and ability—made up of vocalists from both the contemporary music scene and socialist organizing communities, accompanied by the composer on cello. Choral Marx re-sounds Marx and Engels’s 1848 critique of capitalism in 2018 and explores the resonance of the Manifesto today.

Staged Reading | The Thorns of Flower Children: Aging Hippies Reflect


It’s another “Big Chill”, this time 30 years later as a gathering of friends in their 60’s, with a young millennial in their midst, experience an evening of strong emotions, unbridled joys and deep longings. What these “aging hippies” have gone through in life brings about a multitude of revelations for themselves as well as their new young friend. Over the course of a long night each character accepts the “thorns” in their lives as they begin a journey toward the perfect way to age to perfection. A poignant, and often humorous celebration of growing old and all the wonders and mysteries that go with it. Written by Michael McGovern

Author Reading | The Order of the Day: Behind the Scenes of the Anschluss


French author Éric Vuillard will discuss his 2017 Prix Goncourt-winning book, a behind-the-scenes account of the Anschluss, or annexation of Austria into Nazi Germany in March 1938. In this short, dazzling narrative, Vuillard exposes the mechanics of hubris, manipulation, and bluff that led to the meeting of 24 German captains of industry with Nazi officials to extract funds for the National Socialist Party in 1933; then to the annexation of Austria in 1938.

Author Reading | Perfect Me: Beauty as an Ethical Ideal


Heather Widdows looks at how beauty has become a moral imperative in today’s society. While beauty has been somewhat of a prerequisite in our society for some time now, what is new here is that Widdows argues that beauty ideals are becoming shared ethical ideals— ideals by which we judge ourselves and others as good or bad. Increasingly we believe attaining some aspect of the beauty ideal – being thin or firm enough – will deliver the goods of the good life – relationship success, work success and happiness. Therefore, if we fail physically, we fail everywhere else.
