"Ghetto Aesthetics: The Pruitt-Igoe Myth and the Spatialization of Class"

Time: 6 pm to 7 pm

Contact: Laura Murphy · lmurphy@loyno.edu · 504-865-2479

Location: Whitney Bank Presentation Room, Thomas Hall

Loyola will host Julia Faisst who will give a talk titled, "Ghetto Aesthetics: The Pruitt-Igoe Myth and the Spatialization of Class."
 
In discussions of the alleged failure of public housing in the U.S., the Pruitt-Igoe myth long held sway over the public imagination. The modernist architecture of the fabled yet notorious Pruitt-Igoe, a massive postwar public housing project in St. Louis, was supposed to design social ills out of existence and change poor people for the better. Yet its rapid deterioration and ultimate demolition was blamed on the very African Americans who had been moved from crowded slums to the 33 high-rises. Honing in on residential segregation as a form of spatialized class divisions—so intimately tied to racial inequality—Faisst will offer a critical reading of Chad Freidrich’s 2011 documentary film The Pruitt-Igoe Myth, which aims at debunking this myth.
 
Faisst's talk foregrounds political indifference to the poor as well as scrutinizes contemporary aestheticizations of urban wastelands, arguing that systemic classism and racism were the cause, aim, and outcome of the Pruitt-Igoe’s degeneration.

The Jazz Underground concert will focus on the music from Coltraneʼs ground-breaking recording, Giant Steps.

Also performing with Dagradi will be alto saxophonist Khari Allen Lee, pianist Michael Pellera, Ashlin Parker on trumpet, Chris Severin on bass and John Vidacovich on drums. Lee teaches at the New Orleans Center for Creative arts and with his beautiful tone and spirit is quickly making a name for himself as soulful modernist.

Dagradi, an internationally recognized jazz performer, composer, author and educator, is most well known for his work with Astral Project, an adventurous quintet made up of top New Orleans players. For more than three decades, he has made his home in New Orleans, performing on tenor and soprano sax with many of the Crescent City's most celebrated artists, including Ellis Marsalis, Allen Toussaint, James Booker, The Meters, Dr. John, James Black, Johnny Adams and Gatemouth Brown. His performing past also includes five years as a member of the internationally acclaimed Carla Bley band and appearances with Bobby McFerrin, Mose Allison and Nat Adderley.

Endgame

Time: 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Contact: Patrick Gendusa · cpgendus@loyno.edu · 504-865-2853

Location: Lower Depths Theater, 1st Floor, Comm./Music Complex

Cost: $12 gen. admission, $8 students, senior, faculty/staff, group ra Get Tickets

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
