Should Straight Actors Play Gay Roles? Or Is That Gayface?

Should Straight Actors Play Gay Roles? Or Is That Gayface? | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it

It’s true that such a race-based list would at least raise eyebrows, if not inspire outright anger, due to the ever-present specter of blackface. But does this provocative comparison really hold up? Does “gayface” really deserve to be placed in the same awful category as racial impersonation, and if not, what makes it different?

How a Little-Known Mexican Film Mirrors the Labor Struggles of Today

How a Little-Known Mexican Film Mirrors the Labor Struggles of Today | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it

In March, the Kentucky Center for Performing Arts in Louisville hosted the first of what will be four nationwide presentations of Music Unwound: Copland and Mexico, a multimedia project that infuses live performances with cultural and historical content. The title, clearly meant to hook new audiences, set the tone for a program that included a talk about composer Aaron Copland’s life and time in Mexico in the early 1930s, a slideshow of the period’s popular culture and political muralists, and a screening of the rarely-seen Mexican film Redes (1936), a moralistic tale of workers’ struggle that was accompanied by the Louisville Orchestra (LO).
