Mar 25 all-day
NOT ONE DROP @ Plan-B Theatre in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Perfoming Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Intimacy, identity, power, life, death.
A fall, a push, a murder.
A sideways glance at the roles we play
To convince ourselves we are(n’t)
Who we think we are.

(or)

If Caryl Churchill and Sarah Kane were to have a literary baby.
This would be that baby.
A weird wacky baby.

NOT ONE DROP by Morag Shepherd features Colleen Baum and Latoya Cameron, directed by Jerry Rapier.

‘LABELED’ Film Festival @ Broadway Centre Theatre
Mar 25 @ 2:00 pm
'LABELED' Film Festival @ Broadway Centre Theatre | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

(Screening times vary each day. Please consult www.labeledfilmfestival.org for full program)

In a culture that stigmatizes people living with mental illness, ‘LABELED’ Film Festival challenges audiences to understand the person behind the labels. Stereotypically, movies portray those with mental illness as outcasts, debilitated, isolated, dependent, dangerous, unpredictable, comedic, annoying and incompetent. ‘LABELED’ strives to humanize them as, chances are, you know someone who is touched by mental illness.
‘LABELED’ will showcase thought-provoking films that explore mental health issues from numerous perspectives. It’s designed to bring together a community of health providers, government agencies, educators, policy makers, caregivers, and individuals who want to better understand and support those with mental illness.

Please see our opening social event, the ‘LABELED’ Sound OFF, 23 March, at the Natural History Museum of Utah, posted separately on this site.

Alliance House is the host of ‘LABELED’. For 30 years, they have championed psycho-social programs for those living with Severe Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI). Alliance House members have the unique opportunity to connect into a supportive and collaborative community to rebuild their confidence and have purpose.

Mar 25 @ 7:30 pm
Children's Dance Theatre's Elfwyn's Saga @ Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Inspired by Viking lore, Elfwyn’s Saga presents an enthralling tale of magic, greed, and heroism. During the early settlement of Iceland, a girl named Elfwyn is born blind after a curse is placed on her family. Guided and protected by the mysterious Hidden Folk, she learns to rely on other senses to perceive the world around her. When a rival Viking clan uses a treacherous magic to sow the seeds of discord among her family, Elfwyn’s gift of clear perception is all that stands between her community and its self-annihilation. An imaginative musical score and hundreds of dazzling costumes help the young dancers of the Children’s Dance Theatre bring this spectacular story to the stage.

Double, double toil and trouble: Recipes to brew financial crises @ J. Willard Marriott Library
Mar 26 @ 3:00 pm
Double, double toil and trouble: Recipes to brew financial crises @ J. Willard Marriott Library |  |  |

The Friends of the Marriott Library
Spring 2017 Sunday Books and Authors Series
Speaker: Cihan Bilginsoy
Why did the housing and mortgage-backed securities markets collapse in 2007? Did dot-com companies of the 1990s and English railway companies of the 1840s have anything in common that explains the boom and crash of their share prices? What menace scared the Bank of England in 1720, J.P. Morgan in 1907, and the Federal Reserve in 1929? Which was the better course of action for the government: saving Bear-Stearns or letting Lehman Brothers fail? How do supposedly rational investors so frequently succumb to euphoria and despair? Asset price bubbles and bank-runs have been an endemic feature of the capitalist system for centuries. The historical record offers a treasure trove of experience that may shed light on how and why financial crises happen.
Dr. Cihan Bilginsoy’s book, A History of Financial Crises: Dreams and Follies of Expectations (Routledge, 2015) documents asset price bubbles and banking crises, from tulip bulbs in the 17th century Netherlands to the subprime mortgages in the 21st century U.S., and explains competing views on why financial markets fail and the role of the government in stabilizing them.
Dr. Bilginsoy received his BS degree in Economics and Statistics from Middle East Technical University in 1976, an MA in Economics from the University of Minnesota in 1979, and a PhD in Economics from the University of Massachusetts in 1986. He joined the Economics Department at the University of Utah 1993 and became a full professor in 2006. He has published widely in scholarly journals.
