From SRQ Magazine, September 4, 2019
Summertime is no vacation for the faculty and staff at New College of Florida, many of who spent those sweltering months planning the jam-packed fourth season of “Connecting the Arts + Humanities on Florida’s Creative Coast.” A full schedule just released this week. Nearly all are free and open to the public.
The season opens September 11 at the NCF Black Box Theater with the first of two movement workshops from Eliza Ladd, head of movement at the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, and those looking for avant-garde artistic programming will find themselves satisfied throughout the season. The Sarasota Ballet co-hosts a demo and presentation on innovative choreographer Paul Taylor in September, and New Music New College returns this year with concerts and artist conversations in October, November, January, February and April.
Programming also takes a bold turn for the political early in the season, with the first installment of a new series focusing on migration, Communities in Transit, kicking off with a presentation of Humanizing Deportation, an oral history project seeing Dr. Robert Irwin, professor of Spanish at UC Davis, speaking with deportees to Mexico and documenting their thoughts and experiences. The second installment comes in February with The Ethics of Diaspora: Race, Citizenship, and Activism in the Black Mediterranean.
