3:00 PM Babson Campus, MA: Our American Hamlet
Our American Hamlet
A World Premiere by Jake Broder
Directed by Steven Maler
 
Date and Time:
March 23–26 and March 29–April 2
Wednesday–Saturday evenings at 7:30 P.M.
Saturday and Sunday matinees at 3:00 P.M.

Location:
Carling-Sorenson Theater

The year was 1866, less than a year after President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. His brother Edwin Booth, one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of the nineteenth century, decided to perform Hamlet on Broadway, a role he had performed in the past to great acclaim. A huge crowd turned up for the performance — but it wasn't clear whether they were there to see the actor perform, or to exact their revenge.  Jacob Fishel, an actor with a wide-ranging career on television and on and off Broadway, takes on the role of Booth.  Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM Shakespeare and Leadership: Richard II
Click here to RSVP

Although the struggle for England's throne was never simple, the kingdom lasted for over a millennium before the sovereignty passed outside a direct familial line. But when an inept ruler — indecisive, frivolous and vain — angered the established nobility, one man interceded in the transition of power and sparked a civil war that would last 86 years.
 
Shakespeare & Leadership features a staged reading of excerpts from the play, performed by leaders from the business community alongside professional actors. The reading is followed by a panel discussion in which the participants address leadership questions and themes raised in the text.

This Film Is Not Yet Rated - Contains Nudity, Language 

 

Watch the official trailer - https://bodyimagemovement.com/embrace/about-the-film/

When Australian woman Taryn Brumfitt posted an unconventional before-and-after photo (celebrating body diversity) on Facebook in 2013 it was shared worldwide and seen by more than 100 million people.

 

The overwhelming response inspired Taryn to learn more about the global issue of body loathing. She launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2014 to produce a documentary film. Her campaign was supported by nearly 9,000 Kickstarter donors who pledged more than $330,000. Babson College's Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) was proudly one of the first corporate-level sponsors of the project.

 

Released in 2016, the documentary "Embrace" follows Taryn’s crusade as she traverses the globe talking to experts, women in the street and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types. In her effervescent style, Taryn explores the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.

 

Embrace had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it was chosen as one of the festival directors’ top 5 picks. It was released in the US in September, 2016.

 

"Our body is not an ornament but a vehicle, says Taryn Brumffit, whose life-endorsing documentary is a surprisingly moving experience. Surprising because the film canvasses issues far beyond the superficial stories about Photoshop, skinny supermodels and unattainable beauty. In her debut film, Bruffit, who garnered attention with arresting before and after photographs of herself posted on social media, has created an inspiring work in which the different ideals of beauty are explored."

-- Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile

Tai Chi is a gentle exercise for body and mind.  With its roots in Chinese martial arts and traditional Chinese medicine, Tai Chi uses slow and gentle movements to build your balance, strength, flexibility and focus.  No matter your age or physical condition, you can practice Tai Chi.  Scientific studies support the effectiveness of Tai Chi in improving the lives of people with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and osteoporosis.  Most of all, Tai Chi is relaxing and fun.  So come as you are, in comfortable clothes, with flat-soled shoes.  You will learn the basic principles of Tai Chi as well as exercises and a short form you will be able to practice on your own.  The course will be taught by faculty member Carolyn Hotchkiss, who has studied Yang and Sun style Tai Chi for five years, and is certified to teach Tai Chi for Arthritis.

Beckett in Brief
Three short plays by Samuel Beckett
Directed by James Seymour
Featuring Will Lyman

Date and Time:
April 27–30 and May 3–7
Wednesday–Saturday evenings at 7:30 P.M.
Saturday and Sunday matinees at 3:00 P.M.
*NOTE: There is no 3pm performance on Saturday, April 29.

Location:
Sorenson Black Box

Among Beckett’s most autobiographical works, Rough for Radio II, The Old Tune, and Krapp’s Last Tape explore universal questions of creativity, memory, aging, sex, friendship, and the proximity of death. These plays from his mid-career are traditionally viewed as individual statements, but the three provide a wealth of impressions when placed in conversation with one another, giving us a better understanding of the legendary playwright’s intellect, passion, and temperament. This production features Will Lyman (left), familiar to Boston audiences for his many roles at CSC and other theaters, and his decades of narrating Frontline on PBS.

Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company.
