This much-acclaimed dramatization of George Orwell's classic, allegorical novel was first seen at the National Theatre of England in 1984, directed and adapted by Peter Hall. The Hebrew translation was directed by Noam Shmuel and opened on September 2015 at the Gesher Theatre, Tel Aviv. Lyrics: Adrian Mitchell Music by: Richard Peaslee Translated by: Daniel Efrat Directed by: Noam Shmuel Musical Director: Nadav Rubinshtein Vocal Coach: Doki Atsmon Set Design: Niv Manor Movement: Amit Zamir Lighting Design: Ziv Voloshin Costume Design: Aviah Bash Assistant Director: Hadas Sher Stage Manager: Tanya Sochanov Photos: Liran Levy Sound Design: Michael Vaisburd Cast: “The Gesher Young Ensemble” Avi Azulay Tom Appelbaum Yael Bouton/Yael Shildkraut Imri Biton/Hillel Capone Shiri Ben Cohen Gal Ben Amra Eden Gozlan Noa Har-Zion Bar Gol Dorel Zilberman Sivan Mast Aviv Carmi Daniel Meroz Carmel Kandel Reviews: "An Excellent Production, Edgy, Musical Political Satire with a Sharp Bite" Noam Shmuel has created a production in which all the elements work together in such harmony, that one is utterly carried away by the sweeping emotions and rhythms of this fairy tale, experiencing the awakening exhilaration of revolt, the joys of community, and the growing sense of injustice and outrage. The simplicity of the story is echoed in the choice of costumes and set. From the play’s first moments, each animal is distinct as a member of its species, and as it progresses, each becomes distinct as an individual. The first is due to the imaginative and precise attention to movement in this production, choreographed by Amit Zamir. The movement is imbued with authenticity, humor and sensitivity – it is one of the many strengths of this production. The ensemble cast is wonderful, working well as a group and at the same time, each revealed to the audience as an individual with thoughts and feelings. Live music accompanies this performance. This production of Animal Farm simply breathes music, the songs and accompanying instrumentals are such an integral part of the work, working their associative magic on the mind. The songs work very well in Hebrew, moreover, the music for the production has been carefully selected for maximum subversive impact. As the animals experience their political awakening and join together to rebel against their oppressor and create a new, egalitarian, just society, one can recognize the melodies of popular Israeli folk songs in the instrumentals. These are songs that were written in the spirit of the new egalitarian, just society that would be built in the land of Israel, songs of hope and unity. Songs that for some, today, represent the false hope and false sense of unity intended to mask a culture in which there is an ever-widening abyss between the haves and the have-nots, in which, as Orwell put it “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” Ayelet Dekel, MidnightEast 20.9.15 “A Fine Ensemble Work” “Rather than dress up as the various animals, the actors portray them brilliantly via voice and movement, coached by Amit Zamir. Niv Manor’s minimalist set includes a “wall” of plastic panels, perfect for “graffiti” and to obscure the ramshackle structure behind it. A series of different-sized metal barrels function as both furniture and props. Napoleon uses the water troughs on the forestage to waterboard Snowball, and to wallow in, but they are also metaphor for death, like the river Styx. The animals wear Aviah Bash’s unisex costumes, a nod to Mao’s China and to Orwell’s own 1984. They’re muddy looking, murky as Ziv Voloshin’s clever lighting. The actors deliver text and song with energy and enthusiasm. This Animal Farm is fine ensemble work, especially as some of the actors portray more than one animal, notably Sivan Mast who’s both the nervy, high-strung mare Molly and one of Napoleon’s eager, slavering attack dogs. The absolute standouts are Aviv Carmi as Napoleon and Gal Ben-Amra as the strong carthorse, Boxer. Ben-Amra’s shambling, uncomplaining, loyal – “Napoleon is always right” – and clueless Boxer is perfect. Carmi’s increasingly vicious Napoleon lets his menace show gradually. As his power grows, so does his weight, actually and politically” Hellen Kaye, Jerusalem Post, 25.10.15

Fort Lewis College 1000 Rim Drive Durango, CO 81301 admission@fortlewis.edu 877-352-2656 http://www.fortlewis.edu *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Following a horrific terror attack at the French weekly satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in early 2015, the art of political cartooning entered into common discussion at a level not previously seen. Often dismissed as trite, silly or crude, political cartoons are actually an extremely powerful form of protest art, which more than once have shaped the flow of history. We’ll have a look at the the evolution of editorial cartooning in the western world in this episode of Fortifact: A Razor Sharp Pen: The History of Political Cartooning. Political cartoons as a genre of art can be separated into some component parts: a caricature or surreal juxtaposition, a comment on a topical issue or person, and a witty concept that ties the previous two things together. Throw in some iconic symbols and you have a powerful statement. Caricature, or the art of depicting a person in an exaggerated manner, has ancient roots. Some of the earliest examples we have date from the Roman city of Pompeii in 79 BCE. This ancient caricature of a politician could have been drawn yesterday. The Italian polymath Leonardo DaVinci delighted in the grotesque, and it was from the Italian, caricare, (kari Kari) which means “exaggeration,” that we derive the word. For most of its early life, caricature as an art form was intended for private audiences, often commissioned by the rich for their own amusement. The tradition of satirically commenting on topical issues got started in the early 18th century with the English polymath William Hogarth. Mainly a painter by trade, Hogarth popularized the idea of using illustration to moralize against the sins of the day. By the late 1700’s editorial cartoons were becoming increasingly understood as a new and influential political tool. In fact, American Founding Father Benjamin Franklin was an early adopter, creating a cartoon extolling colonial unity that is still used today. Following the French Revolution in 1789, editorial cartooning really began to take off, again in England, with its great exponents James Gillray and Thomas Rowlandson. In the 1843, a satirical British magazine called Punch debuted. The publication was scathing in its mockery of the rich and powerful, and brought the term “cartoon” into it’s modern usage as a non-realistic drawing. By the end of the 19th century, newspapers in many countries featured political cartoons. Throughout the 20th century, editorial cartooning continued evolving into simpler forms that relied more on witty, biting punchlines than realistically drawn images. Interestingly, famed children’s book author Dr. Suess freelanced as a political cartoonist during WWII. With the invention of the internet at the end of the 20th century, journalism changed radically, as much of the profit margin collapsed under the preferences of a digital generation whose expectation for online content is that it is free. In 1995, there were over 200 professional staff cartoonists earning a living in american newspapers. In 2015, there are about 50. And yet, those few are reaching, and affecting, larger audiences than ever, alining with an increasing cohort of freelance artists that are not tied to a specific organization. What the future holds for political cartooning is as yet uncertain, but this powerful art form is unlikely to disappear anytime soon.

Death Race 2050 A delirious blend of high-octane action, razor-sharp political satire and full-throttle mayhem, Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 arrives on Blu-ray™ combo pack, DVD and Digital HD January 17, 2017, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The highly anticipated reboot of the cult classic Death Race 2000, the Universal 1440 Entertainment original production straps viewers into the driver’s seat of the ultimate auto showdown, a blood-splattered no-holds-barred virtual-reality show that gleefully pits hardened road warriors against each other — and their audience. Exclusive bonus features reveal how filmmakers transformed the deadliest competition on wheels into a hair-raising, savagely funny game of life or death. Legendary filmmaking icon, Roger Corman, is back with his most outrageous film yet in this sensational, action-packed and darkly humorous reboot of the original Death Race 2000! It’s the year 2050 and America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government ruled by The Chairman (Malcolm McDowell). The masses have been brainwashed with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, in which a motley crew of violent drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for shamelessly running people over and driving each other off the road. The reigning champion and fan favorite, Frankenstein (Manu Bennett), who’s half-man half-machine, wants to take the crown, but his rebel spy co-pilot threatens his legacy. Produced by Roger Corman, the king of cult classics, Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 stars Manu Bennett (The Hobbit) as Frankenstein and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) as the Chairman. The cast also features Burt Grinstead (“NCIS”), Marci Miller (Viper), Folake Rating R Starring: Manu Bennett, Malcolm McDowell, Marci Miller, Yancy Butler, Charlie Farrell, Burt Grinstead, Folake Olowofoyeku, Anessa Ramsey, Shanna Olson Directed By G. J. Echternkamp Produced By Roger Corman Executive Produced By Julie Corman

Tickets: http://amzn.to/2icx7TX Starring BAFTA and Emmy-winner Martin Freeman (Sherlock, The Hobbit) and Tamsin Grieg (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown--The Musical, Episodes), Labour of Love is a razor-sharp political comedy that reunites James Graham and director Jeremy Herrin following their previous collaboration on This House. Labour MP David Lyons cares about modernisation and “electability”… his constituency agent, Jean Whittaker cares about principles and her community. Set away from the Westminster bubble in the party’s traditional northern heartlands, this is a clash of philosophy, culture and class against the backdrop of the Labour Party over 25 years as it moves from Kinnock through Blair into Corbyn…and beyond?

So, politicians take cover and pundits stand back, because there will be songs, there will be dance, and there will be some very funny impressions. Join us as we sort the wets from the dries, the leaks from the fakes, and the factions from the fictions when this bigger, better and wharfier Revue cycles into town. “It truly is a must see.” Sydney Arts Guide “What’s so brilliant… is how the material constantly falls between sharp, incisive satire and deliriously cheap gags.” Daily Review

Behind the scenes of one of the US most influential satire programs! Together with Jon Stewart from The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert gathered 215,000 Americans to the demonstration "To Restore Sanity and/or Fear" in Washington in 2010. Stephen Colbert has been kicking over the traces so poignantly and well aimed that he has been called in to Congress for a hearing. He showed up, not as the father of three and the writer from South Carolina, but as the talk show host Stephen Colbert, his alter ego. The Colbert Report is a talk show that started as a spin-off from The Daily Show, and since the beginning has been making people laugh with fresh political satire. Because no one is as sharp or funny as the always eloquent Stephen Colbert. Co-Executive Producer Meredith Bennett and Head Writer Opus Moreschi joined us at Nordic Media Festival. They have, together with Stephen Colbert, created one of the most popular and longest-running talk shows on American TV. Here you get a glimpse into how they create the satire which has become a political power factor in American society, what the DNA of the show is, and why the basic strategy of The Colbert Report is always: "Make sure the money goes into the funny". Contributing: Opus Moreschi and Meredith Bennett (The Colbert Report), Anders Giæver (VG).
