Gallery West Exhibit Examines Relationship Between Textiles and Human Condition

social-fiber-receptionThe first exhibition of the spring semester at the Suffolk County Community College Michael J. Grant Campus’ Gallery West, Social Fabric/Moral Fiberinvestigates the relationship between textile practices and the human condition. The exhibition will be held from February 14 – March 30, 2017, with an opening reception on February 16.
The show’s artists have taken everyday objects and conditions and re-configured them as contemporary indications of our humanity. The very act of using the hand implies an intimate temporal and physical relationship with creation. Whether in the acknowledgment of familial ties, or the understanding of the personal or cultural ties to where we are, the core of our identity is never far from home.

The repetitive act of embroidery, sewing or beading can create moments of reverie where one’s identity and sense of place can be re-imagined in vivid and exciting ways. The exhibiting artists utilize themes derived from domesticity, ideas of homeland and culture with textile-based techniques to create forms of protest. The unique blend of embroidery, paint, beads, and knots alongside revisions of domestic objects unsettle the viewer forcing them to see line, texture and subject matter as a vivid and multi-dimensional engagement.

Exhibiting Artists:

  • Bren Ahearn
  • Kate Anderson
  • Leila Daw
  • Barbara Karyo
  • Joetta Maue
  • Elisabeth Munro-Smith
  • Elaine Reicheck

Suffolk Innovative Theater Program Welcomes Romanian Performers to College Stage

antisocial

Antisocial, a production by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University will be performed at Suffolk County Community College on September 27.


A Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts study abroad program named “one of four outstanding proposals” by SUNY earlier this year, and awarded a SUNY Chancellor’s Grant for Innovative Study Abroad Programs will kick off the fall semester by welcoming a Romanian theater group to the college’s Ammerman Campus later this month.

The performance on September 27 at Suffolk’s Shea Theatre on the Selden Campus is produced by Radu Stanca National Theatre of Sibiu, Romania and Lucian Blaga University and will feature a performance of Antisocial.  Antisocial is the story of high school students in Romania who create a secret group on social media. The teachers find out, infiltrate and take action; with the support of some of the students.

Next spring, Suffolk County Community College Theater Arts students will collaborate with students from Lucian Blaga University utilizing the SUNY Collaborative Online International Learning Model that employs a variety a technological tools (social media, Skype) in a team taught class.  The students will travel to Romania next summer to perform with their Romanian counterparts at the Sibiu International Theatre Festival. The Sibiu International Theatre Festival has grown in importance and prestige since its founding in the early 1990’s and attracts participants from more than 70 countries, has hundreds of scheduled events and in years past has attracted more than a half million spectators during its 10-day run. Attendees include performing arts groups, filmmakers and critics.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for our students to not only participate in study abroad, but to collaborate and perform with their contemporaries starting from their laptops to such a prestigious international festival,” said Suffolk County Community College Director of Theatre Arts and Academic Chair Charles Wittreich, Jr. ’86

3/16/16 – An Afternoon Performance and Discussion with Janis Astor del Valle

Wednesday, March 16th @ 11:00am in Van Nostrand Theater of the Sagtikos Arts and Sciences Center. 

 

An extremely rare opportunity to experience the pioneering work of the legendary Janis Astor del Valle — followed by a discussion of the role of performance in the Latina/o LGBTQ community.

 

Janis Astor del Valle is a living legend in the world of Solo Performance Art, the Latina/o Theatre, and the LGBTQ Theatre. Her one-person shows have been presented throughout the world and Ms. Astor del Valle has been heralded as one of the most iconic performers of the last 20 years of New York Theatre. Her work has been published in multiple anthologies and she is studied by theatre and performance arts students throughout the world.

 

It is truly an honor to have such an important artist grace the stage of the Van Nostrand Theater and such a rare opportunity to see her perform selections from two of her most popular plays, Transplantations and Becoming Joaquin.

 

Immediately following her performance, Ms. Astor del Valle will sit down with Dr. Jason Ramírez and discuss the evolution of the Latina/o Feminist canon of performance and the history of LGBTQ Theatre in the post-Reagan era.

 

This program is brought to you by a grant from the LATINO AMERICANS: 500 YEARS OF HISTORY Foundation which was awarded to the Michael J. Grant Campus by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.

“The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940″at Suffolk County Community College Theatres

Musical Comedy Murders of 1940
The Theatres at Suffolk County Community College
presents
THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 by John Bishop is an ingenious and wildly comic romp which enjoyed a long and critically hailed run both on and Off-Broadway. Poking antic fun at the more ridiculous aspects of “show biz” and the corny thrillers of Hollywood’s heyday, the play is a non-stop barrage of laughter as those assembled (or at least those who aren’t killed off) untangle the mystery of the “Stage Door Slasher” …a kind of crossbreeding of Charles Ludlam’s The Mystery of Irma Vep and Terrence McNally’s It’s Only a Play seasoned with a soupcon of NOISES OFF.

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is directed by Steven Lantz-Gefroh.

November 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21 at 8:00 p.m.
