What Do People & Reality Deserve?

This exciting Dramatic Presentation of Aesthetic Realism will feature this timely talk: “Ethics—Insistent & Beautiful,” from a 1951 lecture by Eli Siegel

“Ethics is the study of how to give what is coming to yourself and at the same time to everything else….Ethics is the having of an accurate relation between oneself and other things—anything, from a friend, to a mountain, to a nation, to the whole world, to a tree….When we use ourselves in any way against public happiness, it is unethical.”

But There Is More! Reenactment of an Aesthetic Realism Lesson

“Do you think there’s been a tendency in you to sum people up? No being can be summed up just like that. For instance, if you look at a poodle, there’s mystery there. Simply by being, the poodle will have the unknown about him or her.”—Eli Siegel

The Righteous BrothersMournfulness & Radiance In the Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” by Michael Palmer

“Often when we’re sad we contract, turn away from the world scornfully. This song does just the reverse. We hear an expanding, rising melody that takes in nearly two full octaves.”
