Theatreworks Stage Kiss

01/05/2018 to 01/06/2018

5 Brookside Ave., New Milford, CT Phone: 860-350-6883.

Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. Stage Kiss captures Sarah Ruhl's singular voice. It is a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss—or when actors share a real one.

38 Main St, Salisbury, CT

4 pm. Ghana and Me presented by Juliet Moore. My visits to a small fishing village on the coast of West Africa and how the courage and the beauty of the people changed me forever Viewed through slides, video clips, and narrative "There was a hole in me – a place that needed to be filled – I had no idea with what. I was so open, and so longing to have a deeper level to my life....a greater awareness, a more profound perspective. That was when I reconnected with John, Libby, and Peter Moritz and learned what they had been doing since the day we sat in a funeral with 3 tiny white coffins in front of us. I went to Ghana and nothing has been the same since."

Scoville Library Special Presentation: World Around Us Series

01/11/2018

38 Main St, Salisbury, CT

6 pm. (Snow Date Jan. 25). Is the Moon Still There When Nobody Looks? An Introduction to Quantum Physics presented by Matthew Deady Director, Physics Program, Bard College Quantum Mechanics is the most successful physical theory ever developed, and yet its foundations and interpretation have remained an ongoing dispute over the last century. Among its counter-intuitive consequences are Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, the role of the observer as captured in the Schrödinger's Cat paradox, and the "spooky action at a distance" exemplified in entanglement experiments. All of these have implications for our understanding of reality and causality, and continue to be investigated by physicists and philosophers. This talk will provide a historical survey of Quantum Mechanics, leading up to current experiments and theories that weigh on the questions that bedeviled Einstein, Bohr, and many others
