In this election year, Arturo Ui is ripped from the headlines as a brash outsider with no political experience runs for office, takes over a party and rises to power. Featuring eight actors playing over forty roles and a non-traditional space, the plays takes audiences on a theatrical roller coaster ride that rivals the best CNN has to offer.
The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui is a play about a demagogue coming to power in a democratic state. Any resemblance to living persons is entirely coincidental. Written by Bertolt Brecht in 1941, Arturo is simultaneously a satirical explanation of the rise of nationalism in Germany and a warning against allowing the events of the 1930s to repeat themselves.
11am - 6pm at Pratt Manhattan Gallery, Free
Feminism Is Politics! is an inquiry into what is conceptualized by feminists and queer/lesbians in the 21st century as New Feminism.
