The Othello Project
The Moor of Venice, Wound-Up and Unwound
For its 2011 visit, the British International Theatre (BRIT) program focuses two very different lenses on Shakespeare’s tragedy. Combining radically different approaches to Othello in a week of shared, key scene, workshop presentations, Frantic Assembly, one of England’s premier physical theatre companies, will work with USF actors and dancers to create a multi-media piece based on Shakespeare’s tragedy, while integrating an American sensibility into the work. Veteran London director Paul Miller will provide a counterpoint to this approach, working from a traditional, text-based aesthetic, to create a dynamic stylistic blend. The result: an Othello as you’ve never seen it. February 22-26, 8pm, and February 27, 3pm, in Theatre 2. Advance tickets are $8 for students and seniors and $12 general admission, and day-of-show tickets at $10 for students/seniors and $15 for general admission. Group rates are available. For information, call the College of The Arts box office at 813-974-2323, or visit online at http://www.arts.usf.edu/

Guest Artist Recital: Max Lifchitz
"Max Lifchitz, a renowned composer-conductor-pianist from State University of New York in Albany, will collaborate with USF musicians in a project called LIFCHITZ at USF-MUSIC. The program features all Lifchitz works with performances by Lifchitz and USF artist-faculty, Sang-Hie Lee, Kim McCormick, Calbert Falwell, Jay Coble, Kyoung Cho, and Robert McCormick Percussion Ensemble. The collaboration will culminate in a concert at USF on February 27, 2011, a subsequent concert in Albany, NY, and (we hope to obtain funds to perform) at Merkin Hall in New York City in the 2011-2012 season. With proper funding support, we plan to produce a CD using the state-of-the-arts recording facility in the new School of Music building. This program is significant and distinctive because the program features a Mexican-born artist who has made a significant life-time contribution and achievement in the American musical scene as a pianist, composer, and conductor. Collaboration with Max will enhance USF music faculty artists’ opportunity to perform his stunning music, produce a CD of all Lifchitz work, and an intended concert tour of New York City and Albany. The expected program includes the following: Canto de Paz (1983) for soprano, flute and piano -Kyoung Cho, Kim McCormick, Sang-Hie Lee Yellow Ribbons No. 43 (2007) for Solo Clarinet in E flat -Calvin Falwell Yellow Ribbons No. 44 (2007) for flute and piano -Kim McCormick and Sang-Hie Lee Mosaico Latinamericano (1991) for flute and piano -Kim McCormick and Max Lifchitz Do Animals Think?

Flash Mob

Flash Mob

Students for Social Justice is organizing a Flash Mob to bring attention to the attrocities that occur in the tomato fields of south Florida.  This action is aimed at gaining student solidarity with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers as they march on March 5 to call on Publix to "Do the Right Thing" and recognize human and labor rights of the people producing the food they sell. Farmworkers deserve a livable wage and humane working conditions, but continue to be excluded from basic labor rights, earn sub-poverty wages, and slavery is still a reality in the fields. Publix has the responsibility to improve the lives of farmworkers by using their enormous buying power to pay JUST ONE PENNY MORE PER POUND for their tomatoes. Questions?  Contact Alyse Griffin at (727) 709-1084 or algriffi@mail.usf.edu
