Robert Zatorre, “Music in the Brain: Pitch, Imagery, and Emotion”

Monday March 4, 2013, 6-8:00 p.m., Earl Hall Auditorium

How do our brains allow us to perceive, and perform music? How do we imagine musical sounds? Why does music elicit emotion? This lecture will discuss research carried out in our lab over the past few years that help to shed light on these questions.

Darci Picoult, “Creating Stories for the Stage and Film”

Monday, March 25, 2013 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., Faculty Room, Low Library

Are you interested in learning about what it takes to develop a story from page to performance? Darci Picoult, a screenwriting and playwriting fellow at the Sundance Film and Theater Labs, and acting teacher at NYU Tisch School Of The Arts, will speak of her experience on location and in the rehearsal room, highlighting the integral relationship between actors, directors, writers and producers.

Lissette Olivares, “Coco Rico’s Revolutionary Pleasures: Screening and Workshop in Political Performance”

Thursday, April 11, 2013 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., Rennert Auditorium, Kraft Center

This screening and workshop will introduce the audience to the political performance of Coco Rico, a Latina cyborg interventionist that trespasses across the tissue of time and space to promote feminist, anarchist, and multispecies approaches to consciousness. Students will engage in a discussion around the role of the artist in society while critically considering how performance can decolonize mainstream mediations of racialized and gendered bodies in film, television, and video. At the end of the session students will have time to play activist games that help them to brainstorm their own performative repertoires.
