Where Genius Grows

This show wrestles with big questions from a dizzying array of perspectives. The resulting picture shows us where genius grows in plain sight. * Main themes include: * "Our Changing World" — Social and technological innovation are rewriting the map of our lives faster than we can keep up. People leading the change help us make sense of this rapid evolution. * "United We Stand" — It's easy to take for granted the fabric that holds society together. People who have insight into the forces that create unity, ranging from the interpersonal to the international, help us to see our own role in weaving this fabric. * "Finding Your Voice" — How we express ourselves fundamentally shapes the way we live our lives. By learning from the multitude of ways that people use their voices, we can find the means to more fully reveal who we are. * "Mastering Your Craft" — We stand in awe of skills that craftspeople have elevated to the level of art. For those engaged in this process, mastery may seem forever out of reach. What can we learn from them?

The languages we speak define who we are. What were to happen if you discovered a language that changed the course of your life? *

Sarah Aroeste (@SarahAroeste) discusses this in depth in this interview. Sarah has forged a remarkable international, award-winning career by singing in the Sephardic language of Ladino. Sarah talks about infusing both her own original songs as well as 15th-century Ladino folks songs with her unique blend of pop, rock, and jazz. *
