Translation Film Series: Rabbit-Proof Fence
50 free tickets are available for 5 College Students with ID.

Introduced by Lisa T. Brooks of Amherst College and followed by a 20-minute discussion.

An Australian "western" with epic sweep directed by Phillip Noyce and dealing with the "stolen generation" of aboriginal children who were torn from their families by misguided state functionaries. It's based on a true story about three girls taken from their mother in 1931 and sent to a state-run facility a thousand miles away; they escape and set off for home on foot, dodging the law en route. Starring Kenneth Branagh as the misguided arm of the law and David Gulpilil, the aboriginal star of Walkabout, as a ruthless tracker. Adapted by Christine Olsen from a book by Doris Pilkington and shot by the matchless Christopher Doyle.

Translation Film Series: Caesar Must Die
50 free tickets are available for 5 College Students with ID.

Introduced by Anston L. Bosman of Amherst College and followed by a 20-minute discussion.

Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's Caesar Must Die deftly melds narrative and documentary in a transcendently powerful drama-within-a-drama. The film was made in Rome's Rebibbia Prison, where the inmates are preparing to stage Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. After a competitive casting process, the roles are eventually allocated, and the prisoners begin exploring the text, finding in its tale of fraternity, power and betrayal parallels to their own lives and stories. Hardened criminals, many with links to organised crime, these actors find great motivation in performing the play. As we witness the rehearsals, beautifully photographed in various nooks and crannies within the prison, we see the inmates also work through their own conflicts, both internal and between each other.

Magic Triangle Jazz Series: Ned Rothenberg's Inner Diaspora
Ned Rothenberg’s Inner Diaspora - which includes Rothenberg (clarinet, bass clarinet, shakuhachi and alto saxophone), Samir Chatterjee (tabla),  Jerome Harris (acoustic bass guitar), Mark Feldman (violin) and Erik Friedlander (cello) -  “moves beyond the confines of jazz, classical and folk genres to create something genuinely new,” writes Thom Jurek. “Inner Diaspora is a deeply moving recording, one that touches the heart with its emotional intelligence, even as it dialogues with history.”

Released on Tzadik Records as part of its Radical Jewish Culture Series, Ned Rothenberg interprets the inner Diaspora as a place of learning and growth. The music is rich in rhythmic invention, instrumental color and lyricism. Drawing upon his extensive experience in world music, Rothenberg explores the possibilities of 21st century Jewish culture through the nuances of scales, modes and feelings of alienation and belonging.

“Woodwind/saxophone ace Ned Rothenberg has a formidable reputation as an innovator,” writes Tzadik Records. “Rothenberg has been celebrated for his circular-breathing techniques, as well as his experiments with overtone manipulation and polyphony. He also shares the restless eclecticism of colleagues like John Zorn and Anthony Braxton, with a particular interest in the more painterly shades of contemporary Japanese classical music. What renders Rothenberg more approachable and, in the end, more significant than many of his peers is the serenity at the heart of his fiercest playing.”

Born in 1956 in Boston, Rothenberg graduated from Oberlin College and studied at Oberlin Conservatory, Berklee School of Music, privately with Les Scott (saxophone & clarinet), and George Coleman (jazz improvisation). However, his trademark solo technique is self-taught. Rothenberg has led his North African-influenced Double Band and the ensembles, Power Lines and Sync. He has toured in duos with the Tuvan throat singer Sainkho Namtchylak, the shakuhachi virtuoso Katsuya Yokoyama, the English saxophone improviser Evan Parker, and worked with many of the most creative musicians in New York City since moving there in 1978.

Rothenberg's musical interests are numerous and his work varies widely in its sonic, emotive and stylistic profiles. As a composer he can move from the contemporary classical setting of his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings to "Jazz-funk in cubist perspective, dizzying, yet visceral" (Jon Pareles, NY Times), to music that is "intense, slightly melancholic, rhapsodic without being sentimental” (Edward Rothstein).  His concentration on an expanded sonic language is directed towards wider possibilities of musical communication, never at technical novelty as an end in itself. 

He has received grants and commissions from the New York Foundation for the Arts, New York State Arts Council, Mary Flagler Cary Trust, Lila Wallace Foundation, Chamber Music America, Asian Cultural Council, Roulette, Jerome Foundation, Meet the Composer, Japan Society and ASCAP.

Magic Triangle Jazz Series: Fred Hersch Trio
The Fred Hersch Trio featuring John Hébert, bass and Eric McPherson, drums, has been called, “one of the major ensembles of our time," by Will Friedwald.

Their 2012 release, Alive at the Village Vanguard, “is audacious and extravagant,” writes Tom Conrad in Jazz Times Magazine. “The title of this album, and the vital music it contains, must be understood as his ringing, joyous, belligerent celebration of the miraculous fact that he is, in every sense, alive.”

“The music bristles with a spirit of invention,” writes Howard Reich, “its substantive harmonic content giving weight to the proceedings, while Hersch’s mercurial interactions with John Hébert and Eric McPherson keep listeners on edge.”

Proclaimed by Vanity Fair magazine, “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade or so,” 6-time Grammy nominee Fred Hersch balances his internationally recognized instrumental skills with significant achievements as a composer, bandleader, and theatrical conceptualist, as well as remaining an in-demand collaborator with other noted bandleaders and vocalists.

He was the first and second artist in the 75-year history of the Village Vanguard to play week-long engagements as a solo pianist. As leader of his widely praised trio, and as the creative force behind his ambitious 2011 autobiographical production, “My Coma Dreams”, ( a full-evening work for 11 instrumentalists, actor/singer and animation/multimedia) -- Hersch has fully lived up to the approbation of the New York Times, who praised him as “singular among the trailblazers of their art, a largely unsung innovator of this borderless, individualistic jazz – a jazz for the 21st century.”

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1955, Hersch began playing the piano at age four, was composing music by eight and winning national piano competitions by age ten. Hersch has collaborated with an astonishing range of instrumentalists and vocalists throughout worlds of jazz (Joe Henderson, Charlie Haden, Art Farmer, Stan Getz and Bill Frisell); classical (Renée Fleming, Dawn Upshaw, Christopher O'Riley); and Broadway (Audra McDonald). He has been awarded a Rockefeller Fellowship, grants from Chamber Music America, the National Endowment for the Arts and Meet the Composer, and seven composition residencies at the MacDowell Colony He is currently on the Jazz Studies faculty of the New England Conservatory.

A passionate spokesman and fund-raiser for AIDS services and education agencies since 1993, Hersch has produced and performed on four benefit recordings and in numerous concerts for charities including Classical Action: Performing Arts Against AIDS and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS that have raised over $250,000 to date. He has also been the keynote speaker and performer at international medical conferences in the U.S. and Europe.

Magic Triangle Jazz Series: Jason Kao Hwang's "Burning Bridge"
Jason Kao Hwang’s Burning Bridge, featuring cross-cultural jazz improvisations by an octet of Chinese and Western instruments, includes his quartet EDGE: Taylor Ho Bynum (cornet), Andrew Drury (drums) and Ken Filiano (bass), along with Joseph Daley (tuba), Sun Li (pipa), Steve Swell (trombone) and Wang Guowei (erhu). 

“Violinist-composer Jason Kao Hwang has brought a vast array of sonic wonders to his latest genre-straddling work, Burning Bridge,” writes The Washington Post. “Hwang has his finger firmly on the racing pulse of the 21st century, where everything is interconnected and boundaries of time and geography seem hopelessly quaint. If there’s a war cry for music of the new millennium, it might well be: Burn the bridges – there’s no going back.”

He is a founding member of The Far East Side Band, an intercultural ensemble combining Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and American musical elements. He has composed the scores for numerous films and has also worked in the field of commercial music. Hwang was in the original cast of the Broadway production of M. Butterfly, performing music he co-arranged for that production; he later toured with the national productions as a music director.

“Burning Bridge is a monumental endeavor,” writes Glen Astarita, “foretelling that often unattainable synchronization within modern era avant-garde vistas where calamity, harmonious accord, and mind-altering improvisation seem to be in alignment with the heavens.”

Hwang has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, The New York State Council on the Arts, the Greenwall Foundation, the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, and the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust for his opera Immigrant of the Womb. His chamber opera The Floating Box: A Story in Chinatown premiered in 2001.

Hwang has recorded for the Axiom, Celluloid, Columbia, Enja, FMP, New World, Victo, Asian Improv and Innova labels.

 “Burning one's bridges is typically seen as a break with the past,” writes Downbeat Magazine. “The flip side of the expression, though, is the necessity of moving forward. Violinist Jason Kao Hwang stands at the crossroads of his influences - classical, jazz and traditional Chinese music - and sets the divisions between them ablaze.  The resulting palette is expansive, and Hwang explores its full range.”

STEM ED Institute Tuesday Seminar: Luk Hendrik, AECERN
Discoveries made by our students can inspire deep and lasting learning. But there are many challenges to setting up effective discovery-based learning opportunities. Aecern is a non-profit education organization based in Woods Hole, MA that is exploring how technology can help by providing tools and structure to guide and facilitate data capture and use, both in the classroom and beyond. In collaboration with teachers in MA and throughout the US we are building the Aecern Discovery Hub. This free learning platform prompts students to capture discoveries they make through a mobile app (for iPad, iPhone only at this time). Their discoveries are automatically made available to them online through our website, where they can be reviewed, shared, and incorporated into learning activities. Teachers can either build their own version of the Aecern app,

or use one designed by our community of discovery educators. During this presentation we'll give a hands-on introduction to the Aecern Discovery Hub, provide an update on our progress to date, and put out a call for educators (you?) who would like to collaborate with us to help make this learning resource great.
