Isango Ensemble is a South African theater company that draws its artists from the townships surrounding Cape Town. The company reimagines classics from the Western theater canon while finding new context for the stories within a South African township setting, thereby creating inventive work relevant to the heritage of the nation and a “joyful fusion of two cultures.” (Boston Globe) For their UMS debut, they present three performances of The Magic Flute, which features Mozart’s score transcribed for an orchestra of marimbas.

Zell Visiting Writers Series: CM Burroughs, Poetry Reading

Thu., Oct. 17, 5:30-6:30 p.m.


CM Burroughs’ book of poems, "The Vital System" (Tupelo Press), illuminates what she calls "the protective capability of violence.” In the words of renowned French feminist scholar Hélène Cixous: “Burroughs delves into the ultra-sensitive roots of being; where sufferings and desires take shape, she gathers each breath as yet unheard and leads it to speech.” This event is free and open to the public. Onsite book sales will be provided by Literati Bookstore. (734) 764-0395; (734) 764-3731 (FAX)
