Andy Statman

Apr 27

Andy Statman 

Pollak Theatre - 7 PM

Had there been a planetarium in 19th-century Galicia, or a kosher deli in Depression-era Kentucky, Andy Statman’s music might have been playing in the background. Meandering through time, geography and culture in a few passionate, organic gusts of music, neither the man nor his inimitable hybrid sound has a very clearly defined “before” or “after.” Statman, one of his generation’s premier mandolinists and clarinetists, thinks of his compositions as “a spontaneous, American-roots form of very personal, prayerful Hasidic music, by way of avant-garde jazz.” Presented by the Jewish Cultural Studies Program at Monmouth University.

Heidi Rose Performance Artist in Mirror Image and Twin

Feb 17

Heidi Rose Performance Artist in Mirror Image and Twin 

Hawk TV Studios - 4:30 PM

Mirror Image: Two cousins are born five months apart to identical twin mothers. Shaped by their mothers’ careers as 1950s pop singers, these women both complement and contradict one another as their lives unfold. Mirror Image reveals a life and relationship that now exist only in dreams, memories… and on stage. Twin: Identical twin girls each have a personality that is in some ways too big for their bodies. Too big to control. Too big to contain. They have lived their whole lives off-balance. Would they have been better proportioned had the egg not split? This performance is presented as a work in progress.
