Queen Mab: The Size of Dreaming

The Multicultural Arts Center and Queen Mab are proud to present The Size of Dreaming: A Micro-Theatre Extravaganza on October 21, 2019 at 7:00 pm.

Join us for an evening of scenes, songs, food and drink to celebrate the launch of Queen Mab – a Micro-Theatre!

What is Micro-Theatre? It’s a two-person Romeo & Juliet; a solo Midsummer Night’s Dream; three actresses doing Three Sisters. It’s powerful drama, distilled down to its essence; fully realized, professional productions of the greatest plays, performed by no more than three actors. Language, storytelling, and the transformational power of theatre. That’s Micro.

Come witness Queen Mab's Micro Magic with scenes from our upcoming seasons, as well as special performances from Regie Gibson’s astounding new blues musical, The Juke. Feast on delicious food, enjoy our cash bar, hobnob with the artists, and help launch this exciting new company.

This Miracle by Tamar Granovsky

Upcoming Artist Talk: October 17

Join the Multicultural Arts Center for an Artist Talk by Tamar Granovsky about her project This Miracle on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 7:00pm. This event is free and open to the public.

 

Cambridge based artist Tamar Granovsky’s photography is rooted in memory – subjective and of the heart. She seeks something that she cannot always grasp, and her past, along with her experiences, frame that search. The places she photographs reveal traces of herself and the images that result are reflections of her journey, which are often like dreams faintly remembered.

 

This Miracle is a personal exploration into the human landscape of Brazil’s Bahia State and reflects Granovsky’s evolving understanding of this evocative and poignant place. It offers a private view of a complex people who struggle daily to survive but are sustained by family values and religious practices.  

 

While in the Bahia State, Granovsky often encountered the gifts of warmth, intimacy, and openness. Despite the joy she witnessed, she was equally drawn to the aura of sadness that seemed to lurk just beneath the surface. The pervasive sense of a people who have been forgotten were the same people who gave Granovsky a feeling of coming home.

 

This Miracle will be on view from September 9 - October 25, 2019.
