About Buzzards Bay
map
Buzzards Bay is located in southern Massachusetts along the north western side of the Cape Cod Canal. The tidal salt water bay is bordered on its entire east side by the towns of Upper Cape Cod and on its entire west side by 6 towns in southernmost Massachusetts. Buzzards Bay was established by Congress in 1985 as an "Estuary of National Significance".

The bay is home to many water and land recreational activities. On the water they include sailing and fishing, swimming and sunbathing. On the vast land surrounding Buzzards Bay you can visit State Forests and Reservations and take part in field trips based on nature and environmental studies. There are also numerous hiking and bike trails that lead to the bay from all of the surrounding communities.

Plan to attend or participate in the Buzzards Bay Regatta or just spend a leisurely vacation in and around Buzzards Bay. It will prove to be a memorable and pleasurable experience.

Academy of Music Theatre

Categories

This intimate, immersive new adaptation of Chekhov’s classic from critically acclaimed playwright Annie Baker, author of Body Awareness, Mirror Circle Transformation, and The Flick, brings colloquial language to this internationally beloved story of human relationships and yearning. Written with the “goal of creating a version that sounds to our contemporary American ears the way the play sounded to Russian ears during the play’s first productions in the provinces in 1898?, Ms. Baker’s Uncle Vanya introduces 21st century audiences to Chekhov’s enduring wit, insight, and emotional depth.

Annie Baker is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright. She grew up in Amherst, Massachusetts and graduated from the Department of Dramatic Writing at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She earned her MFA from Brooklyn College. In 2011, Ms. Baker was named a Fellow of United States Artists. She has received The Steinberg Playwright Award, the Obie Award for Playwriting, and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. She currently teaches at NYU, Barnard College, and SUNY at Stony Brook.

This panel develops from the concert we have arranged to showcase the creative practices of Cambodian and Cambodian-American artists and will feature arts practitioners, community leaders, secondary school teachers, and scholars who will discuss their wide-ranging experiences practicing, teaching, and advocating for Cambodian arts in varied contexts. Exploring issues of memory, heritage, and the arts in post-conflict societies and among people living in diaspora, we first aim to highlight the voices and experiences of Cambodian people who have historically been silenced and marginalized by war, genocide, and economic hardship. We then seek to understand how the policies and priorities of institutions such as schools, universities, nonprofit organizations, the government, and granting agencies interact in the development of Cambodian arts sectors in Cambodia and in diaspora.

Bolshoi Ballet Screening: The Bolt

Opportunity to see a ground-breaking production by the famous Bolshoi Ballet of Moscow, filmed in HD. Originally created in 1931 and mothballed without reaching its premiere due to fears of censorship and government censure for its innovative and satirical nature, this ballet is a complex image of the contradictions of life in the early Soviet Union told in movement and music and inventive staging.

Of interest to lovers of dance, theater, music and Russian culture. Directed for film by Vincent Bataillon (Bel Air Media, 2005). Introduced by the Press Secretary of the Bolshoi Theatre, Katerina Novikova, and Anna Winestein.
