Spring Faculty Dance Concert – “Women of Myth Unleashed/The Seven Deadly Sins”

438c1070ade7f47f8d16127238c6a1c7 (1)From the CFA:

Artist in Residence Patricia Beaman presents two exhilarating world premieres. Ms. Beaman and renowned Baroque soprano Christine Brandes embark on a seminal collaboration of their own making, Women of Myth Unleashed. By juxtaposing the traditional form and mythological subject matter of the Baroque era with 21st century modern movement and contemporary issues, they bring the iconic mythological figures of Armide, Arianna, and Medea into sharp relief on stage. In Médée, Louis Nicolas Clérembault’s cantata from 1710, Ms. Brandes and Ms. Beaman depict the bifurcated nature of Medea’s tortured state, with electrifying music provided by Folia, an early music ensemble of stellar musicians.

Opening the second half of the evening is The Seven Deadly Sins, an inventive ensemble dance theater work choreographed and directed by Patricia Beaman. Radically re-envisioned as a production set in Weimar-era Berlin in the seediest of cabarets, this edgy Neo-Baroque work has been specially created for Wesleyan students as part of the “Repertory and Performance” course.

Date: Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28
Time: 8 PM
Place: CFA Theater
Cost: $5 for Wesleyan students

WESupport International Students

From Elizabeth Arslanoglou ’16:

Are you an international student? Are you facing difficulties in adapting to classes and social life at WES? Do you feel that your cultural norms are different from those in the US? Do you believe that there are many things you just don’t get here? Do you feel homesick? Do you want a group of people similar to you to talk to?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us in our New Mental Health Support Group, specifically focused on International Students. The group will be facilitated by trained students who will also be active participants in the discussion. We will be having weekly friendly conversations about issues that concern us, relative to our transition from other cultures into a US college campus. You are not the only one out there facing “culture shock” so come share your experiences and thoughts!

Date: February 23-May 11
Time: 8-9 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel Meditation Room
