ONLINE LECTURE: Beyond Seneca Falls, Womens’ Suffrage Movement–Sharon Historical Society
Aug 15 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Heather Munro Prescott
No registration required. Please join Zoom Meeting:
https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6312716761

Why does Seneca Falls play such a prominent role in histories of the suffrage movement? Part of the reason has to do with who wrote the first history of the suffrage movement. The dominance of Seneca Falls in the public memory of the suffrage movement has caused other activists to be neglected. In preparation for the suffrage centennial, scholars around the country are bringing new stories to light and providing fresh insights to the long story of women’s suffrage. This talk will show that the history of women’s suffrage in the New England region not only provides examples of critical suffrage activism on the state and local level, but also demonstrates how suffragists from the region helped build the suffrage cause into a national movement.

ONLINE PERFORMANCE–TERO SAARINEN COMPANY & THE BOSTON CAMERATA, JACOB’S PILLOW DANCE FESTIVAL
Aug 20 @ 7:00 pm

The resonance of Borrowed Light‘s U.S. premiere in 2006 led to a rare return engagement as part of the Pillow’s 80th anniversary celebration in 2012. The work is inspired by Shaker music (edited and arranged by The Boston Camerata Director Emeritus, Joel Cohen) and dance, and succeeds in seamlessly integrating singers and dancers onstage to create a work that is unstoppable once it starts. Tero Saarinen Company is based in Finland and in permanent residence at Helsinki’s Alexander Theatre, the former home of the Finish National Opera and Ballet.

Artistic director Tero Saarinen founded the company in 1996 as a venue to stage his own choreography, after having first made a name for himself as a soloist with the Finnish National Ballet. In addition to his ballet training, he also studied butoh in Japan and Nepalese dance in Katmandu. One of the most important lessons that Saarinen learned from butoh is a sense of respect for his own history. He quotes his butoh teacher, Kazuo Ohno, as saying, “I am dancing on top of my ancestors.” This philosophy fits perfectly with the goals of The Boston Camerata, which endeavors to preserve and reawaken human memory through music.

The Berkshire International Film Festival and Shakespeare and Company have teamed up this summer to present The Berkshire Drive-In; a “Pop-up Drive-in” summer series on the campus of Shakespeare and Company in Lenox. Films are shown on the Shakespeare & Company campus, 70 Kemble Street in Lenox, Thursday through Sunday evenings beginning July 23 and continuing through September 13, 2020. The series will present nearly 40 curated films including a unique variety of documentaries, narrative features, Sundance hits, Shakespeare-themed films, family films and award-winning animated films curated by Palm Springs International Animation Festival.

The opening weekend will kick-off with Academy Award-winning director Barbara Kopple’s incredible new film DESERT ONE. On Friday night, we celebrate the legendary Olympia Dukakis with the documentary OLYMPIA, screened in partnership with the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Saturday, we will present the moving and timely film WOMEN IN BLUE and we will close the weekend with an Award-Winning Animated Shorts Collection, in partnership with the Palm Springs International Animated Festival. The full list of films are below.

Tickets are $15 per person (kids under 10 are free). Get your tickets here.

Gates open at 7:30PM with show time at 8:30PM until August 15th when films will begin at 8:15PM. Cars will not be permitted on the grounds once the film begins. We have a ticket-less policy, so please print out your ticket at home or have them available on your phone. We will also have a check-in of names when you enter. The sound for the film is generated through your car radio or can also be heard on a portable radio. Parking at the drive-in is first come, first served and if you want to park next to friends, please arrive at the same time. Guests must stay in the cars at all times but an emergency bathroom will be available if necessary. Cars will be parked 10 feet apart and the engine must be shut off once parked. When not in your car you MUST wear a face mask. We are working with area restaurants to provide potential BIFF picnic boxes for pick up at the restaurant…more later.

ONLINE LECTURE: Beyond Seneca Falls, Womens’ Suffrage Movement–Sharon Historical Society
Sep 12 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Heather Munro Prescott
No registration required. Please join Zoom Meeting:
https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6312716761

Why does Seneca Falls play such a prominent role in histories of the suffrage movement? Part of the reason has to do with who wrote the first history of the suffrage movement. The dominance of Seneca Falls in the public memory of the suffrage movement has caused other activists to be neglected. In preparation for the suffrage centennial, scholars around the country are bringing new stories to light and providing fresh insights to the long story of women’s suffrage. This talk will show that the history of women’s suffrage in the New England region not only provides examples of critical suffrage activism on the state and local level, but also demonstrates how suffragists from the region helped build the suffrage cause into a national movement.

About the play: ROE is an historically sweeping play with a large ensemble cast that illuminates the history of one of the most polarizing social issues of the modern era, the Roe v. Wade, U.S. Supreme Court ruling that established a woman’s right to an abortion. The play provides a reminder of the human stories behind the debates and how hard we have to work to compassionately communicate with people with whom we may disagree.

“I wanted people to feel, as they watched the play, that their point of view was represented, if nothing else because that helps people be more open and willing to hear another point of view.”
– Playwright Lisa Loomer

“Betrayal is an exquisite play, brilliantly simple in form and courageous in its search for a poetry that turns banality into melancholy beauty.” —Newsweek.

In this Olivier Award winning classic Harold Pinter brings his savagely tight dialogue and powerful pauses to every interaction these intertwined souls share. Jerry and Emma carry on a seven year affair under the nose of Emma’s husband and Jerry’s best friend, Robert, only to discover, with poetic precision, the fallout of deception.

Lenox, MA–“Roe” a WAM Theatre Play (Where Arts and Activism Meets) @ Shakespeare & Company’s Tina Packer Playhouse
Oct 4 @ 2:00 pm

Berkshire Premiere–Two Women. Multiple Truths. One Landmark Supreme Court Case.

About the play: ROE is an historically sweeping play with a large ensemble cast that illuminates the history of one of the most polarizing social issues of the modern era, the Roe v. Wade, U.S. Supreme Court ruling that established a woman’s right to an abortion. The play provides a reminder of the human stories behind the debates and how hard we have to work to compassionately communicate with people with whom we may disagree.
