Dishwasher Dreams

What exactly is the American Dream? For Alaudin Ullah’s Bangladesh-born parents, it means opportunity and a stable job. But to comedian Alaudin, America is the home of the New York Yankees and George Carlin. In an autobiographical solo show that the Hartford Courant calls “memorable and meaningful,” Ullah and musician Avirodh Sharma take audiences on a journey of vivid remembrances and discoveries from 1930s India (now Bangladesh) to 1970s Spanish Harlem to present-day Hollywood. Through comedy and music, this remarkable play, directed by the acclaimed Chay Yew, recounts the immigrant experience, how this country gets made, and the dreams of those who make it.

Play Day: Gleaming Lights

Mar 10, 2024

Join us on Free Second Sunday for Play Day!

 

Celebrate the legacy of long-time San Diego resident Robert Irwin, who created innovative site-specific artworks that explore the effects of light through interventions in space and architecture.

Taking inspiration from Irwin's use of light, we will play with its natural and artificial sources by casting shadows in a shadow puppet theater and learning the differences between translucent, transparent, and opaque objects.

Art activity: Inspired by the radiant glass sculpture Spanish Fan (1995), on view in MCASD’s Sculpture Garden, create a faux-stained glass rainbow with colored cellophane paper and hang them on your favorite window in Prebys Learning Center.
