Aug. 29th – Oct. 3rdGender and Exposure in Contemporary Iranian PhotographyWells College, String Room Gallery, 170 Main St., Aurora.  This exhibition, guest-curated by Andrea Fitzpatrick of the University of Ottawa, is based on her research into Iranian culture as well as field-work done in Tehran in 2010. In an attempt to expand the issues that have preoccupied discourses in Middle Eastern art (namely: femininity, the veil, gender oppression, religious traditions and/or revolutionary violence), this exhibition addresses the exposure of gendered bodies in Iranian lens-based art. The exhibiting artists (emerging and senior, who all live and work in Iran), shift our attention to: masculinity as well as femininity; female agency and deft political critique; secular activities (for example, café culture, amateur wrestling or body building); Persian traditions; and the unique situation of Iran.  Free, Mon-Fri Noon-5:00 pm, Sat-Sun 1-4 pm.  www.wells.edu  315-364-3266

And that banjo … that incessant banjo. Shelly had seen and heard enough. Is hydraulic fracturing – one of many key processes used to produce America’s enormous reserves of natural gas – as unsafe and environmentally ruinous as some have said? The way Gasland director Josh Fox tried so hard to portray it on HBO? Shelly certainly had a stake in the answer. A teacher by trade from rural northeast Pennsylvania, Shelly lives with her husband, four children and granddaughter on a farm that’s been part of her husband’s family since 1890. Of course, that farm also happens to sit atop the Marcellus Shale, one of the largest natural gas fields in the world. If accessing those resources wasn’t safe, she thought, then neither was her family. She owed it to them – and to herself – to find out the truth.  Free, 7pm.  .  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

The father, Eliezer, is a stubborn purist who fears the establishment and has never been recognized for his work. While his son, Uriel, is an up-and-coming star in the field, who appears to feed on accolades, endlessly seeking recognition. Then one day, the tables turn. When Eliezer learns that he is to be awarded the Israel Prize, the most valuable honor for scholarship in the country, his vanity and desperate need for validation are exposed. His son Uriel, meanwhile, is thrilled to see his father’s achievements finally recognized but, in a darkly funny twist, is forced to choose between the advancement of his own career and his father’s. Will he sabotage his father’s glory? Footnote is the story of insane academic competition, the dichotomy between admiration and envy for a role model, and the very complicated relationship between a father and son.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 9/14, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 9/15, 8:00 pm.  .  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

And that banjo … that incessant banjo. Shelly had seen and heard enough. Is hydraulic fracturing – one of many key processes used to produce America’s enormous reserves of natural gas – as unsafe and environmentally ruinous as some have said? The way Gasland director Josh Fox tried so hard to portray it on HBO? Shelly certainly had a stake in the answer. A teacher by trade from rural northeast Pennsylvania, Shelly lives with her husband, four children and granddaughter on a farm that’s been part of her husband’s family since 1890. Of course, that farm also happens to sit atop the Marcellus Shale, one of the largest natural gas fields in the world. If accessing those resources wasn’t safe, she thought, then neither was her family. She owed it to them – and to herself – to find out the truth.  Free, 7pm.  .  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

Sept. 14th & 15th – ” Footnote” – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  Footnote is the tale of a great rivalry between a father and son. Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik (Lior Ashkenazi) are both eccentric professors, who have dedicated their lives to their work in Talmudic Studies. The father, Eliezer, is a stubborn purist who fears the establishment and has never been recognized for his work. While his son, Uriel, is an up-and-coming star in the field, who appears to feed on accolades, endlessly seeking recognition. Then one day, the tables turn. When Eliezer learns that he is to be awarded the Israel Prize, the most valuable honor for scholarship in the country, his vanity and desperate need for validation are exposed. His son Uriel, meanwhile, is thrilled to see his father’s achievements finally recognized but, in a darkly funny twist, is forced to choose between the advancement of his own career and his father’s. Will he sabotage his father’s glory? Footnote is the story of insane academic competition, the dichotomy between admiration and envy for a role model, and the very complicated relationship between a father and son.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 9/14, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 9/15, 8:00 pm.  .  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

Aug 31st & Sept. 1 – Salmon Fishing in the Yemen – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.   Lasse Hallström’s breezy adaptation of Paul Torday’s satiric novel, Salmon Fishing in Yemen, features dedicated anglers and arid Middle Eastern vistas, but it’s a screwball comedy at heart (with Morocco standing in for Yemen).

She believes that cooperation with his country would be good for Britain’s image, while the sheik has more altruistic goals in mind.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 8/31, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 9/1, 8:00 pm.  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669
