|All Day ||From Root to Sky: Sachiko Akiyama (Multi-Day Event)|
Click here to RSVP
Artist Talk and Reception: Wednesday, April 5, 5:00 P.M.
Exhibit on View: April 5–May 19
Sachiko Akiyama’s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist’s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales. Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures’ relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.

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.
This event is general admission.
