Sistine Chapel

Considering I don’t live in Rome, or Italy, or even Europe, I’m fortunate to say that I’ve visited the Vatican and seen the Sistine Chapel twice. For those of you who have never been I recommend the following link:

Of course it doesn’t do the real thing justice, just as how a photograph of the Pieta is a sad, cruel joke in comparison to the real thing. However, if you’ve never been to Vatican City, a virtual tour of this quality of the Sistine Chapel is as close as you’ll ever get without stepping a foot into Rome.

YO MISS! : JUDITH SLOAN : FEBRUARY 16



Conceived and written by Judith Sloan Directed by Michael Dinwiddie
Music consultant Frank London
Performed by Judith Sloan
with Adam Hill and MiWi LaLupa
Live Sound Engineer Luke Santy
Sound direction Judith Sloan
Editor at large Warren Lehrer

What happens when a performing artist survives a near-fatal car accident and collides with the oncoming traffic of Hip Hop culture? Part documentary, part music, part poetic autobiography, Yo Miss! looks back on Judith’s twenty years of teaching in prisons, immigration high schools, and universities. In this sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always truth-seeking performance, Sloan breaks down assumptions that divide teacher and student, student and student, one sub-culture from another, and residents of a polyglot city who live in close proximity but come from conflicting worlds. Through poetry, vivid character portrayals and music, she brings their tales to life along with her own stories revealing the ripple effects of the Holocaust on her family. In addition to her work as an educator, Judith Sloan is an award-winning character actress, oral historian, and radio producer. Fusing the art of theatre and radio, Yo Miss is an eye- and ear-witness account of one artist navigating a maze of miscommunications, memory, and cross-generational dialogues as she finds resilience in the face of tragedy.
