The Opposites–in Ourselves & Art!

This thrilling event, a presentation by the Aesthetic Realism Theatre Co., will show: we can learn about ourselves from art!

It will feature:
Lynette Abel on “Heaviness & Lightness, Pain & Pleasure in Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet,” in which she says:

“In an Aesthetic Realism class, Eli Siegel asked me, ‘When you’re with a man, is your purpose to show how smart you are, to be crafty, or to show what you feel?’…As Shakespeare has Juliet speak to Romeo, she’s not coy or crafty–she’s honest. And Prokofiev’s music has that depth and generosity, that great seriousness and release.”

And–
“Aesthetic Realism & Hieronymus Bosch” By Eli Siegel. In this exciting lecture, he said:

“When the painter Bosch took very disgusting, fearful things and related them to things that are more beautiful, it came from a desire to like the world.”

And–Eli Siegel Talks to Burr Newcomb, an Actor, a Reenactment of an Aesthetic Realism Lesson
“When we enact people, we have to have a relation to them….So is there a difficulty: you would like to get out of yourself and also remain yourself?”

–And more!
