Distler Performance Hall, Granoff Music Center
20 Talbot Avenue, Medford, MA
Featuring the film screening of “Acting Together on the World Stage” and a post-film discussion on the importance and the risks of cultural diplomacy with leading experts:
- Arthur Kibbelaar, Consul for Press and Cultural Affairs at the Consulate General for the Netherlands, NY
- Dijana Milosević, Artistic Director of DAH Teatar, Belgrade, and contributor to the Acting Together anthology
- Cynthia E. Cohen, co-creator of “Acting Together on the World Stage,” and Director of the Peacebuilding and the Arts Program, International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life, Brandeis University
With the goal of illustrating non-violent ways of addressing human conflict, the documentary “Acting Together on the World Stage” presents the work of theater artists, cultural leaders and peacebuilding practitioners who are drawing on the disciplines of their crafts to support communities to creatively resist abuses of power, re-humanize adversaries, and become more just, inclusive and peaceful. Featuring stories of artists from the United States, Peru, Argentina, Serbia, Uganda, Cambodia and Australia, the 55-minute film strengthens an emerging international movement linking performance and peacebuilding, and highlights the movement’s achievements and its promise.
In addition to the film, highlights of the event include a musical performance by Libana, reception, book signing, displays of work by Medicine Wheel Productions, refreshments and more. Click here for more information.
