The Things That Divide Us: Meditations

Friday, October 25, 2019 at 5:00pm to 6:30pm

Killian Hall
160 Memorial Drive, Cambridge MA 02139

There are so many “things” that divide us – that create tyrannical perimeters, borders, boundaries and walls; that order the way we look at each other and “other” others; that perpetuate hierarchies; and that all too often tragically legitimate and elaborate ignorance, misunderstanding, inequalities, violence, oppression, and death.

This performance-lecture ...through narrative poetics, music, and images ... cogitates on some of those “things," with the aim of both bearing witness and hopefully stimulating thinking about ways to vision ... something else.

A dialogue will follow
