In clay, Kevin Dikdan ’19 discovered intricacies of business | BrandeisNOW

Being an artist calls on so many skills: critical thinking, problem solving, and that mysterious quality of presence. Presence of mind, awareness of possibilities, the agility to think differently.

For Kevin Dikdan ’19, zoning out at the pottery wheel isn’t just a form of relaxation – it’s a noble exercise that has led him to discovery.

Brandeis alumni making art happen! Brandeis University Alumni Association

Shout out to our new Member of the Week, Anneke Reich!!

Anneke (she/her/hers) is an educator, singer, and theater practitioner. She is currently pursuing her M. Ed. at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and serves as the Artistic Director of Artists' Theater of Boston. Her work is guided by equity-seeking practices and youth voice, and is actively pursuing participatory action research theater methods and creating systems for accessible consent education.

She has taught and directed at several schools and theater organizations in Boston for over six years, where her focus on student voice was centered on helping students fight for social justice through gaining critical thinking and analysis skills about themselves and the world around them through the powerful process of creating theater. She recently piloted her first consent education curriculum, which resulted in a series of student- created videos about rape culture awareness and modelling healthy relationships, both for teens and adults, produced in collaboration with The Uncomfortable Conversation, Inc.

As a director, she is strongly influenced by feminist & queer theory. As an actor, credits include Bridge Repertory Theater’s Julius Caesar, Apollinaire Theatre Company’s Blood Wedding, and Imaginary Beasts’ Lovers’ Quarrels.

Anneke is also a member of Boston-based band Big Fuzzy; find them playing all around town this spring and summer! Check out Artists' Theater of Boston's upcoming remounted production of This Place/ Displaced playing May 2-4 (tickets are free) after its first sold- out run last summer. Also stay tuned for our upcoming season focused on gender representations, and feel free to reach out to us for more information or if you are interested in collaborating!

Anneke is a graduate of Brandeis University, where she studied Theatre Arts and American Studies.

Inga Chinilina

Would you like to sing a lullaby to be included in the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts at Brandeis?

“Lullaby for the Earth“ is a sound installation that explores sounds and melodies from different cultures to form a new interactive language.

The artist, Inga Chinilina, is looking to record members of the Brandeis community singing lullabies that will be part of the work. You can pick any lullaby that is in the public domain (written before 1923, which most folk songs are). Volunteers will receive a copy of the recording, and can be credited in the final program notes if desired (or you can be anonymous).

Recordings will take about 10 minutes and will take place in Slosberg Music Center on Thursday, February 28. Other times can also be arranged. Please email [email protected] to set up a convenient time.

Different languages are especially encouraged!

This project is part of the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts, April 7-14, 2019. Made possible by the Office of the Arts at Brandeis.

Composer and pianist Inga Chinilina has studied composition and performance at Berklee College of Music, and is currently finishing her MFA in Theory and Composition at Brandeis University. She has also studied Gregorian chant and church organ improvisation at Schola Artis Spiritualis Musica Sacra in Moscow, Russia.

Bernstein is back at Brandeis for the fall semester

See the "interesting, engaging and emotional" exhibition Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music in Spingold Theater Center through November 18. (To the reporter's repeated complaint that there have been too many Bernstein-related events this year, we point out politely that a centennial only comes around once, and that if anyone is extra enough to merit the attention, it's Leonard Bernstein.)
