    Play Hard Play Hard

    Play Hard Play Hard is a multicultural art project that combines thought-provoking theatre with global music from the Middle East & beyond. Play Hard Play Hard disrupts the traditional conversation around cultures whose names one encounters often only in the news. It is an invitation to experience a culture beyond the headlines. Play Hard Play Hard has two parts: one play & one party. It first challenges you to join the conversation through a play that poses complex questions about cultural identities and realities. It, then, invites you to a party filled with dancing and vibrant music by DJs who bring their cultural rhythms and sounds to life. Come join Play Hard Play Hard on Feb 8th at the Virgil.

    A play. A party. An invitation to experience a culture beyond the headlines.

    Forbidden to leave his country, playwright Nassim Soleimanpour distilled the experience of an entire generation in an utterly original play. No rehearsals. No director. No set. A different actor reads the script cold for the first time at each performance.

    WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT is a work about contemporary Iran and a generation born amidst the hardship of the Iran-Iraq war. It will be performed by Joey Vahedi, whose most recent credits include Lucifer on Netflix and The Chosen.

    DJ PANIZ is an Iranian-American DJ, producer and recording engineer. As a DJ, her focus is to bring the vibrant sounds of the Middle East, particularly those of Iran, to the United States. At Play Hard Play Hard, she will be playing Persian classics from the 2000s alongside songs in Arabic, Kurdish and Turkish.

    Play Hard Play Hard. Feb 8th. The Virgil. Doors at 8 PM.

    Tickets are here.

  • Master Class: Transforming Your Short Film to Your First Feature with Adamma and Adanne Ebo

    Master Classes are in-depth, interactive learning experiences focused on craft and career building and led by renowned industry experts. Topics include fiction and documentary filmmaking, TV writing and production, and navigating and succeeding in the entertainment industry. 

    What do Bottle Rocket, Whiplash, and Honk for Jesus, Save Your Soul have in common? All three films started out as shorts before being reimagined and expanded into feature-length films. One of the best ways to showcase your craft as a filmmaker is to write and direct a short film. Over the years, many independent filmmakers have used their short as a proof-of-concept and learning opportunity for a feature-length project. But how do you make that leap from short to feature? What should you consider creatively? How do you leverage the success of your short to find opportunities for financing? In our live, interactive three-hour Master Class, twin sisters/filmmakers Adamma and Adanne Ebo will guide you through the journey from short to feature, sharing the journey from award-winning short film to their critically acclaimed feature film Honk for Jesus, Save Your Soul (SFF ‘22) as a case study.

    Topics covered include:

    • Crafting your short film as a proof of concept for a feature
    • Understanding each format’s strengths and weaknesses
    • Expanding your story and character arcs (and letting things go)
    • Financing your feature
    • Building an audience through your shortlist of donors
    • Evaluating attachments for cast and crew
    • Production considerations when setting up your feature

    If you have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate in this event, please complete this form, contact us at (435) 776-7790 or email us at [email protected] to discuss your specific needs. Every effort will be made to accommodate advance requests; requests made within 5 days of the event may not be guaranteed.

  • Exhibition reception for Material Systems: Digital Design and Fabrication

    This exhibit showcases the results of the Fall 2022 course Material Systems: Digital Design and Fabrication offered at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD). For over a decade, faculty from the GSD have collaborated with the Harvard Ceramics Program to offer an experiential learning opportunity for design students that links research and experimentation in emerging digital technologies with the context of ceramic material systems. The course combines technological developments relating to the way in which things are designed (digital modeling, simulation, generative design, etc.) and the way things are made (automation, computer-controlled equipment including robotics, advanced materials, etc.) in search of new opportunities. Each object exhibited here is the result of prototyping and experimentation during the pursuit of a research question – it represents a step in a process of exploration, rather than a finished product. 

    This reception is free and open to the public. RSVP is appreciated.

    Two events, one address! On the same evening, the Harvard Ed Portal right next door will hold a reception for the exhibition Derealization: Kurdistan, Art & Memory by Kamal Ahmad, in partnership with Artisans Asylum. More details & registration link for the Ed Portal event here.

  • Lindsay Rogers Visiting Artist Workshop

    Saturday & Sunday, March 4 & 5, 2023
    10am to 5pm each day

    Lindsay Rogers will demonstrate her making and surfacing processes in this two-day workshop. Demonstrations will include throwing and finishing pots, and how to use a Cricut® cutting machine to make tools for creating layered surface designs on greenware and bisque. Decorative methods will employ the use of photography, design software, paper masks, texture, rolling mats, silk screen printing, and vinyl resist. While using the Cricut cutting machine will be a topical focus (as it is one of Rogers’ primary tools), participants can readily utilize many of the techniques shown without a machine after the workshop.

    Students will have the opportunity to try several of these techniques on clay tiles provided by the studio on Sunday afternoon. Tools will be provided for all students.

    ARTIST BIO:
    Lindsay Rogers is a potter, educator, and gardener living in the mountains of East Tennessee. She received her BA with a concentration in printmaking from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA in ceramics from the University of Florida. Over the years, Lindsay has used her work as a ceramic artist to advocate for a more locally based, sustainable food system. She has participated in collaborations with artists, chefs, and farmers. Her pottery and words can be found in a range of publications from books to blogs, magazines, and podcasts. She is currently an Associate Professor of Ceramics at East Tennessee State University.

    Cost: $25 for Harvard College Undergraduates, $200 for adults and Harvard Graduate students enrolled in a course at the Ceramics Program, and $250.00 for those not enrolled in a course.
