Heroes Take Their Stands
This topic — turned into a multimedia program performed by Yo-Yo Ma’s “Silk Road Ensemble in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Irvine, Berkeley and the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts at Washington DC — was conceived to explore the idea of a hero, as opposed to a super-hero. Tragic heroes in all cultures make agonizing choices for selfless action. Sometimes their choices are not between Good and Bad but between conflicting maxims. The moment of choice is a sublime one and that’s why pondering it requires trans-rational means such as music and plastic arts. The lecture will feature slides of the show, in which Ahmad Sadri played a key role. He'll explore the concept of heroes and why he chose the five he did for the show (Starting from Electra from Greece and ending with MLK from the US). For further information, please click on the show site below.
