Hannah Bos returns to Sundance

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

Six Points Fellow Hannah Bos and her company The Debate Society were selected to participate in the Sundance Institute’s 2012 Theater Lab, taking place from October 30 to November 13, 2011 at White Oak in Yulee, Florida. The Sundance Institute Theater Program identifies and assists emerging theatre artists, contributes to the creative growth of established artists, and encourages and supports the development of new work for the stage. The Debate Society will be working on their Untitled World’s Fair Play, described below.

Chicago 1893: The Zoopraxiscope, cracker jacks and neon lights. The Ferris Wheel, hootchy-kootchy… hell they even had the hamburger! On the eve of a glowing new century, something terrible happens in a humble two-story home. And everything ends. Chicago 1933: When The Fair returns 40 years later, so do the unfinished histories of everything that could have been. And so things begin for the hermit upstairs and the mysterious look-a-like below. Play-making company The Debate Society creates a haunted world of forgotten futures, a rotting building and the spirit of invention.

Galeet Dardashti Monajat Tour

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Monajat (Fervent Prayer) is a multimedia concert series, an initiative of the New Jewish Culture Network. Monajat is inspired by Selihot, the poetic prayers of forgiveness recited during the month preceding the Jewish High Holidays according to Middle Eastern tradition. Monajat combines participatory workshops, talks, prayer services, and other educational programs to enhance the spiritual and cultural experience. Galeet re-imagines the Selihot ritual in collaboration with an acclaimed ensemble of musicians, an electronic soundscape, and dynamic video projections by video artist and designer Dmitry Kmelnitsky.
