To stay above the water, Sizwe Banzi might just have to put himself below the ground. John Kani won the Tony Award for Best Actor for his astonishing performance in a historic collaboration with South Africa’s greatest playwright, Athol Fugard (Master Harold and the Boys, Valley Song). Now, 40 years later, Kani brings us a new production of this soaring and personal play, direct from South Africa’s acclaimed Market Theatre. As relevant now as it was then, Sizwe Banzi Is Dead is an exquisite demonstration of the political power of storytelling. A striking tale of heroism and perseverance, this powerful drama is filled with surprising humor and uplifting faith in the human spirit. A co-production with The Market Theatre and Syracuse Stage.

Instructor: Alan Kesselhaut The limitation of the camera to capture a scene as we see it with our eyes is a challenge faced by every photographer. High Dynamic Range photography is a set of techniques that allow the photographer to more accurately depict the range of intensity levels in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint night light. Using Photomatix software to merge your multiple frames and layers in Photoshop/Elements, we can produce images that express our artistry and preserve the feelings that moved us to take the picture in the first place.
