Description:
Following in the tradition of literary and philosophical salons of the 17th and 18th century CCCD is hosting a series of gatherings in conjunction with each exhibition at Benchspace Gallery & Workshop to engage with a central theme of the show. A book will be selected based on the theme and provide a framework for discussion. Refreshments will be served, all are welcome. The Tie Up, Draw Down Salon Theme is Lines. Our discussion will center around themes of the exhibition and book, Lines: A Brief History by Tim Ingold. Refreshments will be served. No reading necessary prior to the event. About the book: What do walking, weaving, observing, storytelling, singing, drawing and writing have in common? The answer is that they all proceed along lines. In Lines: A Brief History, Tim Ingold imagines a world in which everyone and everything consists of interwoven or interconnected lines and lays the foundations for a completely new discipline: the anthropological archaeology of the line. Full Text PDF available here. This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Tie Up, Draw Down, on view at The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design from Friday, June 2, 2017 - Saturday, September 2, 2017. Tie Up, Draw Down is curated by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design’s (CCCD) 2017 Curatorial Fellows Natalie Campbell and Carissa Carman and organized by CCCD. The CCCD Curatorial Fellowship is made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. CCCD is supported in part by a grant from the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Additional support for Benchspace programming provided by Sara and Bill Morgan.

Description:
Something is very wrong at Cadmus Academy. A teacher is dead, a student is missing, and the school is on edge. A new head has arrived with a mandate to restore order and discipline, but as details of her strategy begin to emerge, members of the Cadmus community wonder if they may have gotten more than they bargained for. Has Anyone Seen Ms. Ray? is a new play by Jeff Donnelly and The Cardboard Sea. Directed by Todd Weakley, Ms. Ray is The Cardboard Sea’s fifth production and is in many ways the company’s grandest undertaking to date. Borrowing freely from Sophocles’ Antigone, the full-length script is a dark comedy for our time, delivering blow after blow of both sharp wit and scathing critique. “Antigone asked profound questions that explored the blinding and corruptive forces of power. But ancient as that play may be, these are questions that feel extremely relevant in our current political climate. It feels like a dialogue we should be having,” says Kirstin Leigh Daniel, who plays new Head of School Dr. Gail Colby. Daniel adds, “Thanks, Greek tragedians!” “The play draws on Greek tragedy, magical realism, and sci-fi movies to create a wild and wicked sense of vitality,” says company member Hannah Eicholtz. “What excited me was the mix of modern and ancient. The content is absolutely current. The themes are timeless,” says playwright Jeff Donnelly. Director Todd Weakley adds, “This will be our third show at The Magnetic Theatre. Steve Samuels and company have created a wonderful space and supportive community. Their dedication to new works for theatre is vital and significant. We are humbled to be a part of it.” In addition to Daniel and Eicholtz, the cast also includes Jacob Williams, Lauren Hewer, and Kristi De Ville. Olivia Stuller will serve as stage manager. With a commitment to the transformative nature of live performance, a belief in the collaborative process, and an obsession for storytelling, The Cardboard Sea seeks to activate, engage, surprise, and provoke audiences into new and challenging territory. We aim to: produce works of social significance, highlight the constructed nature of the theatrical event, and provoke self-reflection and critical perspectives. TIckets only $16! $10 student rush tickets available 15 minutes before curtain with valid I.D. Prices include tax and fees.
