Add to Calendar 10-03-2013 10-03-2013 15 Celebrating Humanity's Opposites--Beginning with Ireland! Hear and see the Aesthetic Realism Theatre Company’s stir-ring dramatic and musical production Celebrating Humanity’s Opposites—Beginning with Ireland! It will feature: • Songs of Ireland, superbly sung, with comment on their meaning—such as Danny Boy; The Wearin’ o’ the Green; Molly Malone; Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye; and more! • Good Will: The Greatest Practicality—an illuminating commentary by Ellen Reiss, from The Right of Aesthetic Realism to Be Known, which includes: “I believe the anguish of 400 years of Irish history wants to be used to show that good will is urgent, is the only practical way for human beings to see each other." • Words Are Everywhere: Comedy & Tragedy Are Two of These. Humor & deep feeling merge in a performance of critic and poet Eli Siegel’s lecture on Sean O'Casey’s Juno and the Paycock, with many scenes from this important play. Mr. Siegel explained: "The unconscious has always tried to put these opposites together: why do I feel so bad?; why do I feel so cheerful? The way in Juno and the Paycock the ridiculous, the tawdry, the shoddy mingle with the grand, and the laughable with the unendurable, is notable. Beauty is the only thing that takes the tragedy and comedy of life, its ridiculousness and its tearfulness, and composes them." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=131068 Aesthetic Realism Foundation true DD/MM/YYYY
