OLGA: A farewell concert December 15-23 Aurora Theatre Company You are cordially invited back to the home of Olga Sergeyevna Prozorova for an evening of sweet hellos, stirring songs, and bitter farewells. Soldiers encouraged. Beth Wilmurt (The Eccentricities of a Nightingale and Jack Goes Boating at Aurora; Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Hamlet at Shotgun Players) has been exploring Anton Chekhov's Olga since she played the role in Yes Yes To Moscow, a dance-theatre piece based on Chekov's Three Sisters. With support from Aurora Theatre Company's new works program Originate + Generate, Wilmurt has been developing a theatrical music performance centered around Olga, exploring the enigmatic character's mind and imagination through songs. "She laughs" and "she cries" are two of the most frequent stage directions in Chekhov's play, provoking themes of loss and longing that intermingle with bursts of joy and celebration. For two weeks this December, Aurora hosts Wilmurt and her band for a rousing evening of theatrical songs inspired by Chekhov’s Russians, viewed through a contemporary American lens. Snowy Siberia meets the American songbook in the poignant and imaginative performance.

Art/Act: Brian Skerry-Sharks September 21, 2018 - February 14, 2019 David Brower Center National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry‘s first encounter with a female blue shark off the coast of Rhode Island over 30 years ago was a galvanizing moment. “I was entranced by her rich, indigo skin, while every sense in my body was on high alert, my heart racing as I moved closer,” he says. “Drawing to within a couple of feet of each other, she barely acknowledged my presence and then vanished into the haze.” This fall, the Brower Center honors Skerry with our annual Art/Act award and exhibition. Art/Act: Brian Skerry – SHARKS presents his comprehensive body of photographic work in an immersive exhibition that highlights Skerry’s unique combination of passion, skill, and technique, and explores what it takes to make these powerful images.
