Art on Stage: Marc Chagall's Interpretation of the 20th Century and Influence on The Grand Parade

Following the 8:00PM performance in the Paramount Theatre
Please join us for an exciting discussion with the Double Edge Theatre ensemble and author/critic Jonathan Wilson, author of Marc Chagall - a book that "clears away the sentimental mists surrounding an artist whose career spanned two world wars, the Russian Revolution, the Holocaust, and the birth of the State of Israel." The life and work of Chagall depict a fascinating story of the 20th Century that Double Edge has brought to life on stage. Don’t miss the opportunity to engage with this fantastic local author and visionary ensemble.

The Artist as Global Citizen: Confronting Genocide in Our Work and Practice

Panel discussion and potluck dinner*
Jackie Liebergott Black Box
Immediately following the 2pm performance
“One of the key requirements of genocide is that we look away. So if we can look back, maybe that will strengthen us so we won't look away the next time.”
~Erik Ehn

Immediately following the 2pm performance of The Grand Parade (of the 20th Century), join Double Edge Theatre, ArtsEmerson, and Barbara Grossman of Tufts University for a roundtable discussion of the intersection of art and genocide.

Bring a dish to share and meet us in the Jackie Liebergott Black Box for a potluck meal and conversation around the experiences of creating art inspired by acts of destruction.

*Participants are encouraged to drop off dishes for the potluck before the performance if desired
