Aaron Landsman – Lewis Center for the Arts Visiting Associate Professor and Belknap Visiting Fellow in the Council of the Humanities – explores urbanism through live performances involving people, space, time and language. Based in New York City, his projects range from monologues and stage plays to participatory and conceptual works presented in places where people perform their lives: offices, homes, meeting rooms and buses.
We invite you to a special performance of Landsman’s Love Story on Saturday, April 8 at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City.
The critically acclaimed Love Story is a theatrical urban piece about a disappearing city, two people navigating it, and a fidgety, obsessive follower. The performance begins at 5:30 pm and will be followed by a behind-the-scenes talk with Landsman.
This is a featured event within the Bard Graduate Center’s inaugural Focus Festival: Ritual and Capital. Following Landsman’s work, a conversation with MacArthur Fellow, poet, and author Claudia Rankine and essayist Garnette Cadogan will further explore “ways of seeing the city.”
