More Than Honey

BY WILHELM MIETH
@ VOL 6 ON JUN 24, 2016

Today more than ever, Einstein's statement about the bees is very relevant:  “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”

What is a possible solution?  Wilhelm Mieth, full-time student and part-time beekeeper gives us some ideas in his presentation.

Final Boarding Call

BY JEANETTE PLOURDE
@ VOL 1 ON MAY 27, 2016

"In the in-between land of the airport, what spaces of possibility, defeat, and mystery do we cross as we try to reach our final destination?"

Brooklyn transplant, Jeanette Plourde, creates physically-driven, experimental theatre pieces that explore the places where one art form intersects with another. Part dramatist, and part dancer, Plourde challenges the distinctions between language, movement, and theatre.

Jeanette presented her 400 seconds entitled "Final Boarding Call" at PechaKucha Night Baton Rouge Vol. I

When the Fat Lady Sings, Does She Wear a Mic?

BY KATHERINE SHERWOOD WHITE
@ VOL 1 ON MAY 27, 2016

"There are at least a few common myths about opera that should be debunked!"

In When the Fat Lady Sings, Does She Wear a Mic? from PechaKucha Night Baton Rouge Vol. 1, mezzo-soprano, Katherine Sherwood White debunks the myths surrounding opera. Sherwood White has performed leading roles with Cincinnati Opera, Central City Opera, Kentucky Opera Theater and Texas Opera Theater. She holds a bachelor of music degree from Northwestern State University, a master of music degree from the University of Texas and a doctor of musical arts degree from the University of Kentucky. In other words, she knows a lot more about opera than the rest of us. And even what we think we know might turn out to be wrong...

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, August 1st, 2016.

How much is your time worth?

BY CHRISTINE GALLAGHER
@ VOL 16 ON APR 12, 2019

Do you think about how much your time is worth? Is it worth more or less than other people’s time? There is a saying that “time is money,” but it’s not that simple. Let’s think about how “time” is sometimes “different amounts of money” for different groups of people, and whether or not that needs to change.
