    • Athletics of the Heart: Entertainment in an Age of Polarization and Pandemic

      May 27
      9:00AM – 10:00AM
      Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona Hall | Room: 114 — 1 Prospect Street

      James Bundy, Elizabeth Parker Ware Dean of the David Geffen School of Drama and Artistic Director, Yale Repertory Theater

      The great French artist and theorist, Antonin Artaud, famously observed that “the actor is an athlete of the heart.” We all know actors we love to watch, and the kinds of stories we love to see them in at the theater and onscreen. But what really makes us love these athletes and their sport? And how do their training and collaborations—with writers, directors, and designers—equip them to shape and, perhaps, heal our culture?

      Indy Burke, Carl W. Knobloch, Jr. Dean of the Yale School of the Environment; Professor of Ecosystem Ecology

      Environmental challenges today are more acute than ever, and not likely to decrease with the growing global need for resources to support human society.
