                                                                         Anne Fielding

The basis of this course is in these sentences by Eli Siegel: "According to Aesthetic Realism, acting shows that you don't have to be fettered to yourself. You can be other people....Acting is a certain way of taking the contraries of the world.  It is a way of being somebody else for the purpose of coming back home immediately. You take a trip in order to find out who you are."  Students prepare scenes, take part in improvisations, and present papers in relation to Eli Siegel's Is Beauty the Making One of Opposites? and Aesthetic Realism As Beauty: Acting
Alternate Mondays, 6:00 - 7:30 PM

A Class Open to All Women

Through studying the opposites of contempt and respect in the history of marriage and in their own lives including yesterday's incident at the breakfast table—wives learn how to use marriage and a husband to like the world.  We are grateful to present what we learned in Aesthetic Realism lessons with Eli Siegel.  Some subjects: In Marriage—How Does Adoration Change to Contempt?; Can Sex Be a Source of Pride in Marriage?; Disagreement in Marriage—When Is It Good?

                                                        THE OPPOSITES IN MUSIC
                                                            Barbara Allen, Anne Fielding, Edward Green 

This class is based on the Aesthetic Realism principle "Art is that which, through an individual, shows the oneness of the permanent opposites in reality." We study instances of music, from Bach's "Magnificat" to Duke Ellington's "The Mooche," in relation to Eli Siegel's "AestheticRealism As Beauty: Music," and Martha Baird's "Music Is Real."
Alternate Sundays, 4:00 - 5:30 PM
