ACTnow Activist Theater at Clarice Smith, Sep 30, Online

ACTnow with Javaad Alipoor & Roshan Institute for Persian Studies
Activist Theater

Thursday, September 30, 2021 . 5:30PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Online.

From themes of racial violence and cultural appropriation to multiculturalism and gender equality, the work of The Clarice’s artists is complex, provocative and deeply sensitive. Arts Citizenship Talks (ACTnow) are opportunities to hear from these artists about the issues reflected in their works. These conversations are an invitation to act now!

In the first ACTnow of the 2021-22 season, The Clarice partners with UMD’s Roshan Institute for Persian Studies to host theater artist and activist Javaad Alipoor. Javaad will discuss how converting his plays into virtual multimedia works has helped to accomplish his activist vision and practice. Moderated by Roshan Institute Director Dr. Fatemeh Keshavarz and featuring Dr. Marjan Moosavi, Roshan lecturer in Persian studies and performing arts, this talk will be followed by a showing of Javaad’s play Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran.

A Variety Show, Adults Only!

Cicadas! Wow What a Bug! Kay Taub is an entomologist, or “bug scientist.” She will share the unique biological story of the cicada. Storytelling, dance, and music will also be presented by local artists. If fate allows, a larger-than-life cicada might join in the fun!

A Salute to the Cicadas: A Variety Show to Revere and Razz Brood X is an evening dedicated to our prodigal neighbors who drop by for a visit every 17 years. Whether you believe as the ancient Greeks that these singing, reproductive-focused insects are gifts from the Muses or wish they’d go back into the holes they crawled out of, this event is for you! Joe’s has invited area performing artists both beloved and new to pay a tongue-in-cheek homage to one of the world’s oldest bugs. Recommended for ages 16+.

Masks are required for this in-person event.

Tickets $20 General Admission; $10 Seniors, Veterans, Under 16. Click here.
