This month, Lisa is joined by Carla Della Gatta and Richard Green to discuss the timeless play by Sophocles: Antigone.
The play has clear connections to political struggles we face thousands of years later. The struggle between law and norm, the struggle to define what the state can control, and more. Listen as our three scholars discuss the necessity of reading Antigone today.
Rhymes for Young Ghouls, written and directed by Jeff Barnaby is set on the Red Crow Mi’g Maq reservation, 1976. It follows 15 year old Aila as she navigates growing up in a hostile world.
Host Jonathan Schwartz is joined by Chris Finley and Aubrey Hicks.
They meet at a party, they drink, boundaries become blurred. The issue of consent is a central theme in ACTUALLY. How the issue evolves depends largely on what each character’s experience has been. Does handsomeness bring privilege? Does a strong support system determine privilege? Gender dynamics, race, societal perceptions, measures of success all come into question and the conversation will have a lifetime effect not only on the characters but the audience as well.
In this podcast, Aubrey Hicks, LaVonna Lewis, Oliver Mayer, and John Sonego discuss the themes and how familial background/experiences can modify a truth.
“We are all vulnerable as a victim or perpetrator. Students need to hear real voices for true transparency; otherwise, Title 9 is all about compliance and management.” (L. Lewis)

On April 29, 1992, Los Angeles erupted into chaos and violence after four white police officers were acquitted in the beating of African American Rodney King. The Hotel Play asks what, if anything, has changed in the past 25 years?
Join Jody David Armour, Paula Cizmar, Aubrey Hicks, and David Sloane as we think about race, Los Angeles, art, and social movements. We look at the moment that was the uprising in 1992 and how community organizing that grew out of that moment became a movement.
