2:00 PM - 4:00 PM New York City Human Library/Call for Participants

Lehman College's Leonard Lief Library is partnering with the New York City Human Library [https://www.humanlibrarynyc.org/] for an online Human Library event:

  • Sunday, January 24, 2021
  • 2:00 - 4:00 PM
  • Zoom

 

What is the Human Library?
The Human Library is an organization that began in Denmark in 2000 and now has chapters [called Depots] all over the world.  In a Human Library, real people are “Books” on loan to Readers, giving Readers the opportunity to listen to their stories first-hand. 

Human Library NYC public events break down social barriers by providing a safe platform for individuals to challenge their own stereotypes and prejudices.

If you would like to register to be a 
Book or a Reader - please fill out this Interest Form:

What is a Book in the Human Library?

What is a Reader?

7:00 PM Kenopsia: A fairy tale for the apocalypse

The Lehman College Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre & Dance presents

Kenopsia: A fairy tale for the apocalypse

Friday, Nov. 20 and Saturday, Nov. 21

7 p.m.

Show will be followed by a conversation with the cast.


Description:

Kenopsia is a word, coined by John Koening, from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. It describes "the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that is usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet." This theme served as a starting point for a devised piece created collaboratively with the cast and designers. The story is told through a variety of mediums including movement, text, costumes, sound, and images. Through a process of improvisation and collaboration, performers have created characters and content drawn from archetypal imagery and their own imaginations.
