Shakespeare on the Green moves indoors this weekend to present “The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (abridged),” directed by Nicole Damari ’12 and Kirsten Ward ’12. The play attempts to condense all 37 Shakespeare plays and 154 sonnets into one night. The result is an explosion of sounds and props.

Artist spotlight: Jina Park ’11

March 7, 2011 0 comments

Jina Park ’11 has always been fascinated with how clothes shape people’s lives. “I think it’s really interesting that for work, a person would have to care about how they dress,” she said. Brown has no concentrations in fashion design or apparel, so Park had to find her own path in the world of design. She is concentrating in visual arts and economics but has been interested in fashion since freshman year. “Not to be discouraging to people who want to work in fashion, but I actually found it pretty difficult to work on fashion at Brown,” she said.

Junk Culture, a duo on drums and a synthesizer, and solo artist Max Tundra took Girl Talk’s basic concept of unconventional mash-ups a little further.

February 23, 2011 0 comments

You start at the bottom of a staircase, with little to no idea of what awaits you. A masked actress descends and leads you back up. You go through a door into a room that — if you are familiar with Production Workshop’s upspace — you thought you knew.

Weinstein reflects on growth and discovery

February 18, 2011 0 comments

Professor of Comparative Literature Arnold Weinstein read an excerpt from his new book “Morning, Noon, and Night” and discussed its creation in front of a small crowd of community members and students in the Brown Bookstore Thursday afternoon.
