The Loyola University Department of Theatre Arts and Dance and director Laura Hope kick off the 2014-2015 season with Samuel Beckett’s tragic comedy Endgame.

Endgame's opening lines repeat the word "finished," and the rest of the play hammers away at the idea that beginnings and endings are intertwined, that existence is cyclical. While Hamm and Clov are in the "endgame" of their ancient lives, with death lurking around the corner, they are also stuck in a perpetual loop that never allows final closure.

Like no other dramatist before him, Samuel Beckett’s works capture the pathos and ironies of modern life yet still maintain his faith in man’s capacity for compassion and survival no matter how absurd his environment may have become.

Director Laura Hope finds Beckett’s Endgame more true than ever in the 21st century, we are turning into Beckett’s absurdist world, the ecological havoc we humans wreak on the planet, and the global warming and rising sea levels that so many of us deny is happening. Visual inspiration has been found in art of New Orleans artists Terrance Osborne. What exists outside of the house? Who knows? Quite possibly nothing...anymore.

Endgame will run in the Lower Depths Theatre at Loyola University, 6363 St. Charles Avenue (Corner of Calhoun and St. Charles), on September 26, 27, October 2, 3, 4 @ 7:30 pm and September 28 @ 2:00 pm. No Late Entry.

Presidential Guest Series: "A Good Man: Faith, Hope, and Love in Action," Mark K. Shriver

Time: 7 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Eric Walsh · etwalsh@loyno.edu · 504-865-2304

Location: Roussel Performance Hall, 2nd Floor, Comm./Music Complex

Loyola University New Orleans will host Mark K. Shriver, son of Peace Corps founder Sargent Shriver and Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver and nephew to President John F. Kennedy, for a special talk Tuesday, Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. Shriver will share with the audience the guiding principles of his legendary father’s life and how he strives to apply the same principles—faith, hope and love—in his own career fighting for social justice and advancing the right of every child to a safe and vibrant childhood.

The event, which also features a book signing by Shriver, is part of Loyola’s Presidential Guest Series—a series of inspiring talks that are free and open to the public. The talk will take place in Roussel Hall, located on the second floor of the Communications/Music Complex on Loyola’s main campus. Parking on campus is free for the event.

Shriver is president of the Save the Children Action Network, a new organization that seeks to elevate children on the local, state and national agenda. Shriver leads Save the Children Action Network’s campaigns to end preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths worldwide and to ensure that every child in the U.S. has access to high-quality early childhood education.

That lifelong passion for fighting for social justice is something he shares with his late father, Sargent Shriver. When his father—known for the Peace Corps and also as the architect of President Johnson’s War on Poverty—died in 2011 with Alzheimer’s, thousands of tributes and memories flooded in from friends and strangers worldwide. These tributes, which celebrated the day-to-day kindness and humanity of his father, moved Shriver not only to renew his passion for work that follows in his father’s footsteps, but also led him to write a book: a New York Times and Washington Post best-selling memoir, “A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver.” The book received a 2013 Christopher Award.

In the book, Shriver rediscovers personal stories from friends and family that focus on the three guiding principles of his father’s life—faith, hope and love. In the process, Mark discovers much about himself, as a father, as a husband, and as a social justice advocate. His talk at Loyola will feature the inspirational and deeply personal story about a son discovering the true meaning of his father’s legacy—a legacy that offers lessons for all.

Taking It With You: Death and Personal Adornment at Hasanlu, Iran

Time: 8 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Connie Rodriguez · rodrigue@loyno.edu

Location: Whitney Bank Presentation Room

free admission and free parking on campus

Co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Department of Classical Studies and the New Orleans Society of the Archaeological Institute of America

Hasanlu Tepe, in Northwestern Iran, was the site of a small town with roots in the Neolithic era, continuously occupied through the medieval period.  It was excavated by the Hasanlu Project, a joint expedition of the University of Pennsylvania Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Antiquities Authority of Iran, between 1956-1977. 

On the fringes of the growing Assyrian Empire to the west and the Urartian Empire to the north, the site of Hasanlu reached the height of its prosperity around 900 BCE in Period IVb, a short lived zenith that ended abruptly with a spectacular destruction in approximately 800 BCE.  As part of the international project to prepare the final excavation reports, this research focuses on the personal ornaments—jewelry and other durable goods associated with dress—that were found in both deliberate burials in the cemetery in the lower town, as well as in accidental burials--on the bodies of victims of the final destruction of the citadel.  These rich and varied contexts provide us with the unique and enlightening opportunity to compare funerary adornment to adornment of the living at a single site, across the same historical horizon.

Associate Professor Megan Cifarelli joined the Department of Art History at Manhattanville College in 2007 as a full-time member of the faculty. A specialist in the Art of the Ancient Near East with a Ph.D. from Columbia University, her publications on the art and culture of Northern Mesopotamia and Iran in the first millennium BCE have appeared in journals including The Art Bulletin and The American Journal of Archaeology. In addition to teaching, Professor Cifarelli has worked as a curator in the department of Ancient Near Eastern Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, participating in the development of major exhibitions of the art of ancient Iran and Iraq, and she created an NEH sponsored exhibition on Ancient Greece for the Children's Museum of Manhattan.

 

** The William J. Roberts Lecture was established in 2007 by an endowment gift from Ann V. Roberts in memory of her husband and his dedication to the Archaeological Institute of America and his lifelong passion for archaeology.

William J. Roberts graduated from Brown University in 1942 where he was subsequently commissioned into the U.S. Navy. During his time in the Navy, he served on a PC as a navigator in the first wave of the Normandy Invasion on Utah Beach on D-Day in 1944. After his time with the Navy, Roberts worked for several investment firms in Chicago before becoming Managing Director of Roberts, Glore and Co.  Additionally, he gave lectures on corporate finance and investment at many universities across the US. Always interested in learning, Roberts attended summer sessions at Oxford University, Dartmouth Alumni College, and Cambridge University throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s.

During a trip to Italy, he visited Etruscan ruins and became fascinated with archaeology. Later, he and his wife, Ann, traveled throughout the world so they could learn about many ancient cultures. Roberts was on the visiting committee of the Oriental Institute of Chicago from 1961 until his death in 2006. He was also a life member and trustee of the AIA and treasurer of the AIA’s Chicago Society. Additionally, he was a member of the Classical Art Society of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The Roberts Lecturer is chosen each year by the AIA Lecture Program Committee.

Endgame's opening lines repeat the word "finished," and the rest of the play hammers away at the idea that beginnings and endings are intertwined, that existence is cyclical. While Hamm and Clov are in the "endgame" of their ancient lives, with death lurking around the corner, they are also stuck in a perpetual loop that never allows final closure.

Like no other dramatist before him, Samuel Beckett’s works capture the pathos and ironies of modern life yet still maintain his faith in man’s capacity for compassion and survival no matter how absurd his environment may have become.

Director Laura Hope finds Beckett’s Endgame more true than ever in the 21st century, we are turning into Beckett’s absurdist world, the ecological havoc we humans wreak on the planet, and the global warming and rising sea levels that so many of us deny is happening. Visual inspiration has been found in art of New Orleans artists Terrance Osborne. What exists outside of the house? Who knows? Quite possibly nothing...anymore.

Endgame will run in the Lower Depths Theatre at Loyola University, 6363 St. Charles Avenue (Corner of Calhoun and St. Charles), on September 26, 27, October 2, 3, 4 @ 7:30 pm and September 28 @ 2:00 pm. No Late Entry.
