Theatre/Dance 8th block production of “Coriolanus, or Helter-Skelter”
Norberg Studio, Cornerstone Arts Center, Thursday, May 9th @ 7:30, Friday, May 10th @ 7:30 and Sat. May 11th at 3:00pm (matinee) No evening performance (you are welcome Llamapalooza).

A mashup of William Shakespeare and the Beatles, devised by Tom Lindblade and designed by Max Sarkowsky ’20, Gypsy Ames, & Heidi Eckwall.

“Shakespeare’s great tragedy is a meditation on failed political leadership and the senseless violence and corrosion left in its wake. The chaos of Coriolanus’ Rome is reflected in the helter-skelter fall of a dynasty and a society, showing what happens when personal ambition and grievance supplant ethical norms and moral order. A play for our times.”

Tickets available at the Worner Student Desk or at the door.
Free with CC ID, $5.00 general Public

Rethinking the Damaged Photograph: Images Altered by Hurricanes Katrina & Sandy

Artist Talk by Visiting Art Professor Hannah Ryan

Thursday, May 2 @ 4 p.m.

Cornerstone Screening Room 131

In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, and among the thousands of structures in its path was the studio of New Orleans photographers Keith Calhoun and Chandra McCormick. Both born and raised in the Lower Ninth Ward, the duo had been documenting the culture of Louisiana for decades, increasingly with an eye toward injustice. As the waters receded, Calhoun and McCormick gained reentry to their studio, only to find everything-from equipment to negatives-ruined. As the city recovered, they embarked upon an innovative process of making prints from the damaged negatives, the resultant photographs impossibly catching and freezing in time this destructive event. Calhoun and McCormick generated a series and entitled it “Right to Return.” The process and resultant images have altered their perception of destruction, and they no longer consider the images damaged.
