Ensemble ad Libitum - Stadler and Strings
Tuesday at St. Peter's Church, 320 Boston Post Road, Weston Wednesday at The Chapel at West Parish, 129 Reservation Road, Andover Thursday at Lindsey Chapel, Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury Street, Boston Ensemble ad Libitum presents a program revolving around Anton Stadler, Viennese clarinet virtuoso, instrument designer, part-time composer, and inspiration for Mozart's clarinet works. As a composer, Stadler's works reflected the aesthetic of his modest upbringing, making use (and light) of Austrian folk songs and popular operatic works of the day. His first caprice also demonstrates the humor that initially captivated Mozart. Mozart's Clarinet Quintet was written specifically for Stadler and his newly invented "Basset Clarinet", which features an extended lower range. Mozart's astonishing use of the clarinet timbre in conjunction with the string quartet creates a work that remains one of the most well-known in the clarinet repertoire. A charming quartet by Haydn rounds out the program. Thomas Carroll (clarinet & basset-clarinet), Go Yamamoto & Lisa Goddard (violins), Zoe Kemmerling (viola), & Oliver Weston (cello).

Fixed Bayonets!
Harvard Film Archive, 24 Quincy St.
Mon., July 13, 2015, 7 – 8:35 p.m.



For his debut at Fox and follow-up to The Steel Helmet Fuller returned again to the Korean War with an even bleaker and different perspective on the then ongoing conflict, now seen from the vantage of an exhausted U.S. Army platoon left behind on a frigid snowy mountainside to hold back the inevitable enemy advance. Although shot entirely on the studio lot, Fixed Bayonets! delivers a startlingly realistic and harrowing depiction of combat colored by Fuller's ace typecasting of weathered tough guy character actors—Skip Homeier and Gene Evans among them—as war-worn "grunts.” More unusual, however, is the film's frequent subjective turn, with interior voiceovers speaking of the fear, gnawing boredom and moral dilemmas gripping the men, most critically the singularly anxious solider subtly played by Richard Basehart. As in The Steel Helmet, Fuller again challenges Hollywood's all-too-often one-dimensional definition of war heroism by revealing the fear and frightful indecision that is the everyday reality of the battlefield. Look carefully for a young James Dean in his first, very brief, screen appearance towards the end of the film.

Introduction to Burlesque (July 2015)
No previous experience is necessary. This series of classes was designed and created with the novice dancer in mind, but experienced dancers looking to learn classic burlesque moves and techniques will also greatly benefit. Through a series of lessons and demonstrations which build upon one another, students will learn the fundamentals of burlesque dance. At the end of the course, you will have the building blocks to create your own fun and flirty dance routine. Over the four weeks we'll discuss burlesque-related topics like music selection, the art of costuming, and performing for an audience. Burlesque is a terrific form of expression for any woman. It builds confidence, comfort with your own body and it's great exercise too! This is a four-session course. All classes are from 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. and are taught at B.A.B.E. (119 Braintree St., #206, Allston, MA 02134). Cost: Drop-in Students: No registration is required, just come on over. Each class is designed to stand alone. The drop-in fee is $30 and must be paid in cash to the instructor at the beginning of the session. Pre-paid Students: Register and pay for the class on-line at least 24 hours before the class starts and save $5.00 Please Note: there are no refunds or transfers if you pre-register and cannot attend. Pre-registration is $25 and can be done on-line for one class or multiple classes! Course Commitment: To register for the full course for $99, please select "Tuesday, July 7" as the date you wish to register for, and then select the "All 4 classes" ticket. If you register more than 1 week before the class begins, you're eligible for the "Early Bird" discount of $85. Sessions: Session #1 (Tuesday, July 7): Week One starts things off right with some Burlesque Basics. You'll learn that classic burlesque move, The Bump, plus how to turn your everyday steps in struts and slinky walks. For the striptease lesson, you'll be learning how to remove Long Gloves. We'll have some loaner gloves available, but if you've got a pair of your own, please bring them! Session #2 (Tuesday, July 14): This week's move is The Grind, those oh-so teasing and pleasing types of hip circles that are essential to classic burlesque. Combine it with Week One's lesson, you get the classic "bump 'n' grind". Week Two's striptease lessons are on Skirts and Shirts. Please bring a skirt with a zipper and a blouse with buttons. Since you'll be removing your clothes, you may want to wear shorts or leggings and a tank top underneath or fancy lingerie, depending on your comfort level. Session #3 (Tuesday, July 21): This week's move is The Shimmy, how to quiver and shake to the delight of your audience. We'll continue to build up our movement vocabulary that now includes both bumps and grinds. Week Three's striptease lesson is all about Stockings. Please bring a pair of thigh-high stockings to class. After you learn some Floorwork to highlight your lovely gams, we'll practice the provocative stocking remove. Session #4 (Tuesday, July 28): This week's move is Tassel Twirling -- the ultimate burlesque trick! You will need to bring pasties with tassels to class for this. We'll have a few pairs for sale. If you're uncomfortable appearing in just pasties, please wear a close-fitting tank-top under your bra and affix the pasties to that. It's harder to twirl, but we don't want anyone struggling beyond their comfort level. Week Four's striptease lesson is Removing a Bra. Please bring a back-fastening bra to class. See the above note about pasties and comfort levels. That applies here too. For extra fun, we'll be playing with Feather Boas, that quintessential burlesque accessory. If you have a boa, by all means bring it, but we'll also have some loner boas and a few for sale.
