You’ll have a great time learning about art & people’s lives–including your own! This Dramatic Presentation includes:
“Entertainment Is with the Profit System”
A deep & hilarious 1971 lecture by Eli Siegel, on Arthur Kober’s 1937 hit comedy Having Wonderful Time–with scenes from the play, presented by performers with the Aesthetic Realism Theatre Company:
“There are two ways of being entertained: one is to laugh and the other is to be gripped, to have your attention held–to have your dramatic sense satisfied. This play is well done. Tears are mingled with laughter; sighs are mingled with smirks.”
“Proud Need: What Is It?” A Reenactment of an Aesthetic Realism Lesson
“Everybody would like to be needed without limit–but everyone would like to be able to take things or leave them. The question, Ms. Mitchell, is: as a woman needs a man more, does she think she is weaker or stronger?” –Eli Siegel
“Wonder & the Everyday: Cezanne’s Still Life with Onions”
By writer and Aesthetic Realism consultant Nancy Huntting, in which she says:
“Cezanne sees the meaning in familiar objects, the drama of rest and motion. This is a ‘still life’–yet how much in motion it is! That upright bottle is a staunch sentinel over this unruly bunch of vegetables.”
