 SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18TH  

3:00PM, White Light Festival Conversations: The Body and the Self

VENUE: Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse

DETAILS: Western civilization has tended for centuries to speak of our physical forms as somehow separate from our intangible selves. But we learn from other cultures, and often from our own experience, that our bodies are indeed far more integral to our identities: they’re a window into the unconscious, a pathway to transcendence, and the locus of an inscrutable intelligence. Join us for this multidisciplinary look into the totality of our selves.

In Sunday’s discussion, we turn our attention to the exceptional power of music to reflect and speak to our innermost selves. How is it that even wordless music can be so eloquent? What influence does music have on how we feel, how we see ourselves, and how we see our place in the world? And how has the role of music changed through the ages?

Conversation will be moderated by John Schaefer, host of WNYC’s Soundcheck and New Sounds, and will feature a live musical performance.
