Haiku with Abandoned Ghosts: New Work by Demond Matsuo at The Foundation Gallery

DATE
Sat, Mar 7, 2015
through Sat, Apr 4, 2015
DETAILS

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7, 2015 6 – 10 pm
Exhibition Dates: March 7 – April 4, 2015

Haiku with Abandoned Ghosts: New Work by Demond Matsuo

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7, 2015 6 – 10 pm
Exhibition Dates: March 7 – April 4, 2015

25% of proceeds to benefit: S.T.V Movement

Demond Matsuo is a traveler, a collector of images, an artist whose practice appears as vital as any other function of his being. In his own words “I search the world through seas of papers and inspirations, trying to arrive at a conclusion, a synthesis. The collage serves as a treasure map of sorts, an alchemical illustration pulling you through to understanding my overall meaning.” What you are pulled up through is multilayered Japanese-inspired figures, thick with saturated color and detail. The images echo centuries of ancient history and still vibrate with the ever-present sense that power is a volatile, complex force that can wrap us up in violence, as easily as it can inspire.

This Other World

DATE
Thu, Mar 26, 2015
through Sat, Mar 28, 2015
DETAILS

Thu, Fri, and Sat 6PM

Xavier University's Performance Studies Laboratory presents "This Other World," a site-specific performance developed around the posthumously published haiku of Richard Wright. Weaving Wright's haiku with scenes from his Native Son and Black Boy, "This Other World" explores the author's writing process, formative experiences with race identity, and iconic scenes from his literature. Adapted and directed by Ross Louis from a range of source materials, "This Other World" features two Xavier students (Thomas Nash and Mia Ruffin) in a performance that examines the relationship between Wright's haiku and his earlier fiction and nonfiction. Staged outdoors, "This Other World" incorporates visual and physical elements of Xavier's Art Village, while considering several questions about translating Wright's haiku into performance.
All performances are free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

DATE
Wed, Apr 8, 2015
through Mon, Apr 13, 2015
DETAILS

April 8th and 13th @8PM
April 10th and 11th @11PM

April-- New Orleans, LA-- This burlesque parody of Emmy-nominated Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Once More With Feeling" will celebrate the career of writer/director/producer Joss Whedon, featuring characters from Buffy, Marvel's The Avengers, and more. Presented by Honey Tangerine and Artemis Lark at the Old Marquer Theatre (formerly the Shadowbox), "Once More With Peeling" will run four nights between Wednesday, April 8th and Monday, April 13th.
"Joss Whedon's work is always rooted in feminism. Burlesque is all about agency, taking the objectification of bodies and making it on your own terms. Any feminist material would certainly lend itself to the medium."
"Once More With Peeling" will feature performances from Baron Reinhardt, May Hemmer, Miss Monarch M, Persé Fanny, Queenie O'Hart, Vincent Gallant, and will be hosted by Randii Andii.
