Off-Campus Events (Upcoming)

Let's use this part of the Cultural Production Wikispace to shareinformation on upcoming events in the greater Boston area and the wider region that might be of interest to members and friends of the Cultural Production program.

A good place for updates on upcoming art events in the Boston area is the on line arts journal, "Big,Red and Shiny"

September 22, 2-4:30 pm, location ????
IKatkun, an artist collective in the Boston area is working with Platform2, a series of events in Boston, to produce RISK:Race, Class, Geography and Art. From Platform2's site:

"What risks do we take in seeing a place from perspectives other than our own? What risks do we take if we don’t? What are the challenges for artists who address issues of race and class, or of personal identity and belonging, who use a dialogue-based public creative process to explore these issues? What are the ethics of an art practice that tackles geography and difference and how do these ethics change when applied to micro or macro-political art?"

If you are interested in attending, you should email IKatun at and they will provide you with information.

I Am My Own Wife
Inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright over several years, I Am My Own Wife tells the fascinating story of Charlotte vonMahlsdorf, a German transvestite who managed to survive the Nazi onslaught as well as the following repressive Communist regime. American Repertory Theatre company actor Thomas Derrah plays 35 characters, including the controversial figure herself and the American writer who became intrigued with her.* Til October 8, 2006

I saw this wonderfully acted, humorous, and poignant play and highly recommend it!
