Birdy
Adapted by Naomi Wallace from the novel by William Wharton
directed by Steven Maler

Carling-Sorenson Theater, Babson College

In a Philadelphia suburb before World War II, Birdy, a very smart young man, spends his time collecting pigeons and canaries for his aviary. His best friend, Al, has more earthly interests like sports and girls, but is attracted to Birdy’s eccentricity, intelligence and commitment to his birds. But after both young men return from the war, they are forced to deal with the trauma of their experiences, both physical and psychological.

Birdy examines the effects of war on young lives, a topic that is just as relevant today as it was decades ago. The story also offers hope in the possibility of powerful friendships to heal the psychological wounds of war after the physical wounds have healed.

CLICK HERE TO RSVP

Using a wide variety of media, these five artists explore means of representing and experiencing the sacred across different faith traditions.  Sanskrit mantras are the visibly elegant structure of Shrestha's signature paintings that combine Nepali calligraphic script with American graffiti style, while Saywitz begins her paintings with diaristic text and mantras that are slowly effaced as she builds their surfaces.  Elemental materials of clay, stone, and wood are used by Kozdeba, a ceramicist, and Matsuda, a carver, to represent the powerful presence of sacred architecture and iconic Buddhist sculptures.  In collaborative works using everyday materials, Burr invites engagement with everyday materials (or the stuff around us) as a dynamic form of mindfulness, meditation, or prayer.

Birdy
Adapted by Naomi Wallace from the novel by William Wharton
directed by Steven Maler
February 27-March 3, 2019 and March 7-10
Carling-Sorenson Theater, Babson College

In a Philadelphia suburb before World War II, Birdy, a very smart young man, spends his time collecting pigeons and canaries for his aviary. His best friend, Al, has more earthly interests like sports and girls, but is attracted to Birdy’s eccentricity, intelligence and commitment to his birds. But after both young men return from the war, they are forced to deal with the trauma of their experiences, both physical and psychological.

Birdy examines the effects of war on young lives, a topic that is just as relevant today as it was decades ago. The story also offers hope in the possibility of powerful friendships to heal the psychological wounds of war after the physical wounds have healed.

Zumba®Toning - For those who want to party, but put extra emphasis on toning and sculpting to define those muscles!  It works by utilizing the challenge of adding resistance by using Zumba®Toning Sticks or light weights, which helps you focus on specific muscle groups, so you (and your muscles) stay engaged!  By using lightweight maraca-like toning sticks or light weights, Zumba Toning enhances sense of rhythm and coordination, while toning target zones, including arms, core and lower body.

So, join Dawn George, certified dance and Zumba instructor, as she leads you through the latest in fitness fun.  What are you waiting for?  Ditch the workout....join the party!
