Avner the Eccentric: Exceptions to Gravity 7:00 PM

Avner the Eccentric: Exceptions to Gravity 7:00 PM7:00 PM - Paul Creative Arts Center Johnson Theatre: TICKETS FOR THIS EVENT ARE FREE Avner Eisenberg in Exceptions to Gravity is a reminder of the theatrical power that can reside in a single charismatic performer who touches the heart. A master of the art of physical comedy, Avner weaves a spell of poetic simplicity in a show of hilarious predicaments. Avner Eisenberg was described by New York Magazine as “a clown for the thinking man.” His show Avner the Eccentric was a hit of the 1984-1985 Broadway season. He appeared again on Broadway in Ghetto and The Comedy of Errors. Avner is widely known for his scene-stealing portrayal of the holy man in the Michael Douglas film The Jewel of the Nile. Avner studied with Jacques Lecoq from 1971 to 1974. Since then, he has developed a unique physical approach to comedy and acting that he teaches in workshops around the world. Avner continues to tour his one-man show internationally and has won awards at the Edinburgh Festival, the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, and the Festival Internacional de Pallassos in Barcelona. He won the “Snow Star” for comedy in Switzerland, and the “Lachmesse” award in Germany. There will also be a workshop on Sat Feb 8 from 1-4pm. There will be a sign-up sheet posted for that.

Her books include “Dawnland Voices: An Anthology of Indigenous Writing from New England” (University of Nebraska Press, 2014), which serves as a model for community-responsive scholarship and establishes Senier as one of the most authoritative scholars on Northeast Indigenous writing.

Senier is currently finishing “Sovereignty and Sustainability: Indigenous New England Literary Stewardship in the 20th and 21st Centuries,” to be published by University of Nebraska Press, a book that unites Indigenous studies with ecocriticism and sustainability.
