Airmid events include one night performances, festivals, full productions, lectures, workshops, and even a fundraiser or two to help support Airmid's various programs which have taken place in venues around Suffolk County as well as in Manhattan.
She Said / He Said Lecture and Performance Series
Over the years, critics, producers, publishers, and often even audiences have said, “men just write better than women.” Airmid’s lecture/performance series examines the similarities and differences in translations as well as similar or "response" works from the theatrical canon, by playwrights and translators of different genders. This program seeks to dispel the belief that women are not as capable as men artistically, while illuminating the differences between the female and male “voice” and point of view in theatrical works
SHE SAID / HE SAID: Hedda Gabler
Presented in collaboration with Stony Brook University Theatre Department
Join us for the inaugural event of this series as we explore the play Hedda Gabler from the hand of translator/director/actress Eva LeGalliene through both live performance and film clips from various productions. During the program we will see various scenes, discuss differences from her work to the works of male translators and other aspects of the play and the translators work.
Scholars and two production teams of actors, directors and dramaturgs will help us dig in deep to find new ways to look at this play, the process of making theatre when translating, and in particular a classic text we all THINK we know but may only understand from one perspective.
Special guests Dr. Michael Zelenak and Dr. Amy Cook with performance and dramaturgical teams headed by Don Rebar, Cate Cammaratta come together to present this one of a kind discussion performance program.
