“Beyond Buildings: Reliving Architecture” presented by Aaron Betsky
Thurs., Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. ONLINE
According to Aaron Betsky, Director of the School of Architecture and Design at Virginia Tech, previously the President of the School of Architecture at Taliesin, we do not need any more buildings. We need to reimagine, reuse, and relive the structures we already have. Architecture should not be a question of building but of questioning, opening up, and of unbuilding. There is an environmental reason for this: we cannot afford to waste non-renewable resources and land to create new buildings. We also have to realize that what makes us at home in the modern world is no longer just the making of structures that imprison us, but those images, forms, and spaces that let us play active and critical roles in our society. This lecture will show some recent attempts to make sense of our modern world.

APT Education Director and Core Company Actor, David Daniel, will present material from his program “Shakespeare’s Toothbrush,” a unique and hilarious look at the life and times of the Bard. From brushing your teeth (all seven) to fishing in the Thames, watching a play at the Globe to raising a family- join us for a stroll through the daily life of Elizabethan England. Mr. Daniel wrote and conceived this unique and hilarious look at the life and times of the Bard and has presented it as part of APT’s Beyond the Plays series, and at schools throughout Wisconsin. This event will let you revel in the beauty of classical dramatic language and provides a curious exploration of the culture and society that created the most produced playwright of the English language; William Shakespeare.
