Classics at Cour Regard
What exactly is a classic? How does a text become a classic? And why do we deem it necessary and good to return to works of classic literature time after time?
This Spring we embark on an artistically diverse engagement with the classics as we reconsider what grants certain works of literature entrance into the canon. Part performance part scholarly exploration, Classics at Cour Regard will offer a 21st century perspective and a new appreciation for our civilization’s most iconic works of literature through multidisciplinary celebrations of classic texts. Join us this Fall and Spring for four evenings of literature, music, performance, food, and drink.
