Wednesday, April 9th at 10:30 a.m.

 

Halton Theater

Richard Blanco Reading/Discussion & Signing

 

When the Obama administration selected 44-year-old Richard Blanco to be inaugural poet in 2013, he was the youngest person ever tapped for the honor. Blanco also became the first Latino, the first immigrant and the first openly gay man to address the nation on Inauguration Day. On January 21, 2013, he read his original poem, "One Today" as an honorary participant in the official inaugural ceremony themed, "Faith in America’s Future," commemorating our nation’s perseverance.  Still to this day, Blanco is not sure how he got the assignment.

It renewed Blanco’s faith in the power of words and set in him a mission to connect the American public to contemporary poetry. 


The Psychology of Inner Sports Development

Wednesday, April 9th at 11:30 a.m.

 

Levine Campus, Room 1320

 

It is not by a focus on improving individual parts that the greatest sports development hinges, but by a focus on the whole Self (or Being).  In our modern quest for success, we tend to forget this this inner and ancient mystery of Self. We look elsewhere for our answers. We expect to find them round about us, in our techniques and our technologies. We are mistaken. The real answers lie within. Sports development occurs from the inside –out, from the inner dimensions of self to the outer dimensions of play and performance. Drawing a page from the sacred; all power and progress already exists within you.

"It's ham on wry...Simon's sure footed craftsmanship and his one liners are as exquisitely apt as ever." - New York Post "Delicious and oddly affecting." - The New York Times "Another hit for Simon in a shrewdly balanced, splendid and rather touching slice of the show biz life." - New York Daily News

 


Seeing: Through the Eyes of the Talents

Friday, April 11th at 7:15 p.m.

 

Tate Hall

 

Call this a talent show if you like – but what are talents really? Think of them as geniuses or the genii, the unseen spirits with us since birth waiting to help us “see” the world through their eyes: the super-natural world of images, music, song, dance and word.

All of the senses, as with the Sensoria Celebration itself, are involved in the knowing, the being, the seeing necessary to appreciate and engage beauty and meaning.  Seeing though, even by the artist, is not enough, the artist must respond to the vision.

Be it image, music, voice, word or dance, it’s the artist’s vision that can reveal the nature of the natural world to us, as if for the first time. A multimedia program organized by Elizabeth Ross, this program will have dance, music, word, and video.
