Open Door Project Hours with Shani Peters @ Kresge Art Center Conference Room 126A | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

The Womxn of Color Initiatives (WOCI), an effort to organize events for women of color and their allies at Michigan State University and in the greater Lansing community, is bringing MSU alumna Shani Peters back to campus during the month of March as an Artist-In-Residence to work on a collaborative arts practice project – “Sustain: A Demonstration/Modeling Survival and Self Care Tactics as Public Service” – that will focus on strategies for surviving racism in America.

Her work encompasses community building, activism histories, the subversion of popular media, and the creation of accessible imaginative experiences. She seeks to create environments and experiences that offer respite from painful realities – opportunities for collective power, learning, peace, and wonderment.

We invite you to join us for a month of events! 

“Open Door Project Hours” with Shani Peters will be located in the Kresge Art Center Conference Room 126A on the following dates:

March 13th 3 – 5 PM

(Nalan Kumarasamy, 2013)
Presented by Amrutha Kanapulli

Two unemployed young men meet a rather fringe character called Das. Das is essentially a courteous kidnapper. If he had any wealth, he could be called a gentleman kidnapper. And it’s the three trying to pull a high profile kidnapping, but other characters come in to mess it up. All the while, they’re being chased by a mute cop who’s very good at what he does. The movie features several great character actors from the industry and insane music.

Broad Underground || Beauty and the Glitch @ Robin Theatre
Mar 23 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Beauty and the Glitch

7pm • Friday, March 23, 2018 • Robin Theatre, 1105 S Washington Ave, Lansing

Beauty and the Glitch celebrates contemporary digital animation’s power to confound, provoke, and mesmerize. From the hypnotic neural landscapes of Munro Ferguson’s Minotaur (2014) to the deeply personal low-poly anguish of David OReilly’s Please Say Something (2009), this program seeks to unleash the beauty of the glitch in all its ever-morphing refractions. The pulsating poetry of The Waves (Marta di Francesco, 2016) meets the convulsive viscerality of Ryan (Chris Landreth, 2004) and the cacophonous dreamwork of The Sun Like a Big Dark Animal (Christina Felisgrau and Ronnie Rivera, 2014). Digital disruptions entwine, tangle, and branch off of each other in a latticework of stunning imperfection.

—Programmed by Misha Mihailova


Broad Underground is an ongoing collaboration between the MSU Broad, Film Studies program, and Department of English at MSU. This year’s partnering venue is The Robin Theatre in REO Town, Lansing, with special thanks to the Lansing Public Media Center.
