Thu, Jan 23 1:56pm · MN: Join us Feb. 6, 2020 | Embodied Knowing in Center for Humanities in Medicine

Click here to RSVP

February 6, 2020
6:30PM
Mayo Civic Center
This free performance is made possible with the generous support of the Fuad Mansour fund, and is open to all.

In celebration of Black History Month 2020, poets/storytellers/spoken word artists Danny Solis, Frank Sentwali, and Pam Whitfield offer their own reflections on the human body and how it makes visible illness, health and well-being.

Black feminist writer, Audre Lorde once said, “We recognize that all knowledge is mediated through the body and that feeling is a profound source of information about our lives.”

This embodied knowledge is shaped by the distinct experiences we each have based on our race and gender. So, what do our racialized and gendered bodies know, what do they remember, and what stories do they tell —to others, to ourselves?

Following the performance, guest panelists will respond to the theme and to the poetry. We welcome an open dialogue.

Aug 22, 2019 · Stones in His Pockets | A performance of the Commonweal Theatre in Center for Humanities in Medicine

MUST RSVP here

Wed, Sep 18, 2019
6:30pm to 9:00pm CT

The Commonweal Theatre, located in historic downtown Lanesboro, is excited to announce a special production which will be taking to the road in the summer and fall of 2019 in an effort to engage regional communities.

Stones in His Pockets centers on the characters of Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn who, along with a collection of other townsfolk in a fictional Irish community, find themselves cast as extras in the filming of a Hollywood film. The key point of the play, a tragicomedy, occurs when a local teen takes his own life by drowning himself with stones in his pockets. A cast of two will perform all fifteen characters in the story, both male and female.

Following the performance, please join us for an engaging panel discussion around the ideas and topics presented in the play.

This performance, sponsored by the Mayo Clinic Dolores Jean Lavins Center for Humanities in Medicine and made possible with the generous support of the Taylor Fund, is a free event, open to the community.
