Actor Training, then Nuclear Danger on Peace & Justice, Wednesday April 5 at 9am.
Written by Tom Walker on Monday, April 3, 2023
Our first guest this Wednesday will be Andrei Malaev-Babel, Director of the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, a three-year graduate program culminating in a Master of Fine Arts degree. Only twelve students are chosen each year from the thousands who audition nationwide to work in a program that combines rigorous classroom training with guest artist workshops and professional production experience. We’ll talk about why drama and acting are important.
On the second half of the show, Bob hopes to play an interview he’ll record with Dr. Helen Caldicott. She has “devoted the last forty-two years to an international campaign to educate the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age and the necessary changes in human behavior to prevent environmental destruction.” We’ll talk about the absence of progress towards the eradication of nuclear weapons and the “failure of the nuclear states to eliminate the greatest threat to human survival.”
