In their 90-minute adaptation of Sophocles’ Antigone (Antigona in Spanish), Soledad Barrio, her husband Martin Santangelo, and their company of 18 musicians and dancers fuse Greek tragedy and Spanish passion into a work of dance-theater that is not only a visual feast but a powerful visceral experience that conveys the essence of flamenco’s underlying relevance.

[Work in Progress], a new play by Ross Barron ’17

Hamilton Murray Theater in Murray Dodge Hall · Presented by: Program in TheaterTheatre Intime

Work in Progress, a new play by Senior Ross Barron, engages with questions of love, loss, and death. Artie, an author, and Allen, his character, find themselves at odds in how they think their story should end. Allen will do everything he can to change the fate that has been written for him, and Artie will try to stop him because that's not how it happened. What neither of them realize is that it's not really even up to them, it's up to the woman they both love.

Labyrinth Books · Presented by: Labyrinth Books

Deborah Nelson’s new book, which Jeff Nunokawa has called “a brilliant defense of coldness,” focuses on six brilliant women who are often seen as particularly tough-minded: Simone Weil, Hannah Arendt, Mary McCarthy, Susan Sontag, Diane Arbus, and Joan Didion. Aligned with no single tradition, they escape straightforward categories. Yet their work evinces an affinity of style and philosophical viewpoint that derives from a shared attitude toward suffering. What Mary McCarthy called a “cold eye” was not merely a personal aversion to displays of emotion: it was an unsentimental mode of attention that dictated both ethical positions and aesthetic approaches. We invite you to a conversation that will challenge the pre-eminence of empathy as the ethical posture from which to examine pain.
