Uncertainty (Or, Imprecision)

to 1536624000
Oddball Fermentables
http://www.mcct.org

Monroe County Civic Theater is proud to present “Uncertainty (or Imprecision)” by Nicholas Krohn, is a new comedic play about three friends who meet at a bar on the same night to provide moral support for each other as they embark on their respective online dating prospects for the evening. Along for the ride, is the bartender supplying the trio with plenty of liquid courage, as well as two well-known (and completely out of their respective dimensions) scientists supplying plenty of terrible advice for the trio of friends as they embark on their first physical meeting with the people they have been chatting with online. The dates themselves prove to be one disaster after another in this bizarre and madcap comedy that proves once and for all that dating is the worst, but we all may as well laugh about it.

This Academy Award-nominated animated biopic transforms Dutch master Vincent van Gogh’s artworks into the world’s first entirely hand-painted feature film. It weaves nearly 130 of the artist’s iconic paintings into a detective story that is itself a “one-of-a-kind work of art.” Made over seven years, actors recreated the scenes in front of green screens, then 125 artists hand painted each of the 62,450 frames in Van Gogh’s style. Voice work by actors like Saoirse Ronan and Chris O’Dowd enhances the experience.
This event is free but ticketed. To acquire advanced tickets please visit the IU Cinema’s website.
Art and a Movie is sponsored in part by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes.

Community Workshop: Brazilian Carnival Banner Making

01:00 pm to 03:00 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures
https://www.lotusfest.org/event/maracatu-banner-workshop1/

Are you part of a neighborhood in Bloomington? a group like Girl Scouts? a school? a community organization? Then come create a banner to celebrate neighborhood pride, group identity, and all that makes up our beloved Bloomington community! Inspired by the banners used in Brazil’s Maracatu Carnival tradition, Lotus is inviting groups and individuals to make and display their banners as part of the 25th Lotus World Music & Arts Festival — whatever group or organization you may identify with, bring group members with you or just come by yourself.

At this workshop, you’ll also learn about this beautiful tradition with an introduction to Maracatu cultural customs by Lotus Festival artist Dr. Colleen Haas. An accomplished percussionist, teacher, and ethnomusicologist, Dr. Colleen Haas specializes in Brazilian music and is the lead artist for this year’s Lotus Summer Visual Arts Outreach program, including several free workshops during Festival weekend with the performing group Women of Mass Percussion.

Supplies are provided and staff will be on hand to help guide your banner creation. At the Lotus Festival, banners will be displayed in the Arts Village and can be carried by their makers in the Lotus Festival Parade. After the Festival, banners can be kept by their makers.

Our Lotus 2018 visual arts project focuses on Maracatu, a 400-year-old Afro-Brazilian parading tradition originating from the northeastern city of Recife. Highlighting different strands of history and promoting community diversity, Maracatu acts as an expression of creativity and inclusivity, mirroring social concerns that are significant to society today.
