The House of Bernarda Alba
Brooklyn College’s production of Federico Garcia Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba will play February 26 through March 1. We talk with the cast, director, and dramaturg of the production. We discuss the unique use of puppetry in the production, what the students learned from the process, and the importance of drama and the arts in education.
A Beacon in Black
Gary Younge is a British journalist who writes for both The Guardian and The Nation, and is currently the Belle Zellner Visiting Professor of Public Policy at Brooklyn College. On Wednesday, Younge will present a talk about international perceptions of Barack Obama’s victory, in a lecture hosted by The Wolfe Institute. Younge shares with us his own perspectives as a Briton, and what Americans can learn about the world’s perspectives and about ourselves through Obama’s election.
