Summer, stars, swordfights, Shakespeare

When you see it as it was intended to be seen ⁠— in the open air, with people in the audience from all walks of life ⁠—  you can get swept up in the drama, adventure and laughter and forget that you’re in the middle of an American metropolis. 


justArts SPOTLIGHT ON THE ROSE

 Instead of choosing a soap box or soup can to paint, Pindell depicted a skeleton, perhaps the most basic and mundane of all objects, despite our usual disdain for them — everyone has a skeleton, after all.  


From reality to stage: an interview with This Place/Displaced

From May 2 to 4, Brandeis hosted four showing of “This Place/Displaced,” a theater production that focus on the issue of gentrification and displacement in the Greater Boston area. The event was able to happen thanks to the effort of the Brandeis Univeristy minor in Creativity, the Arts, and Social Transformation. Last week, justArts & Culture spoke to Anneke Reich, the producer of “This Place/Displaced” and a Brandeis alumna, and Joshua Glenn-Kayden, the director of the show.  


Fun on Great Lawn

As part of the Festival of the Creative Arts, Brandeis’s pep band Music And Dance Band performed on the Great Lawn behind the Shapiro Campus Center on April 7th.  


Arts in Archives

  Art & Text in the Archives, an event hosted at Brandeis University Archives & Special Collections as a part of the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts, showed many texts that ranged in design and age for all to enjoy. 


Puppet show for grownups

 As many Brandeis students gathered on Chapels Field for Springfest, I decided to attend a different kind of rowdy performance: a puppet show full of slapstick for the kids and political jokes to get a few chuckles out of the parents.  


Talk with Sundeis

  Sundeis is the annual Brandeis student run-film festival hosted by Brandeis Television. The Justice interviewed the event coordinator Aviva Davis ’21.


Roots, Leaves, History, Culture X

Brandeis celebrated the 20th anniversary of Culture X in Levin Ballroom on Saturday, an event that featured a whirlwind of performers showcasing cultures from all over the world.  


Party under the Light of Reason

Nevertheless, the event dedicated to community, self-expression and celebration of the arts gathered a considerable crowd that reminded us that art is not to be confined to the walls of a museum, but to be enjoyed as a dynamic rupture in public space.
