GableStage will present the southeastern premiere of New Jerusalem, a play by David Ives about the interrogation of Baruch De Spinoza at Talmud Torah Congregation in Amsterdam, July 2, 1656. The City of Amsterdam has accused the young philosopher Spinoza of atheism, and the elders summon him to the synagogue to defend himself. In this eloquent and masterful drama, Ives opens the temple doors and lets us listen to a dispute whose philosophical and political echoes still reverberate today. Presented in association with The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science & The Appignani Foundation, " New Jerusalem" is the winner of Dramatist Guild’s Hull-Warriner Award. “Engrossing primer on Spinoza’s radical thinking, presented in the classic style of a courtroom drama.” – New York Times. Performances are Thursdays - Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets range from $37.50 to $50. GableStage is located in the eastern section of the Biltmore Hotel; valet park or park free in the Biltmore parking area west of the hotel.

Locust Roundtables are open discussions on topics in contemporary art that take place inside Locust Projects' Miami Design District gallery, amid the current exhibitions on view. Heather Diack will present "Packed Like Sardines: Thinking about Everything in Contemporary Art," an interdisciplinary conversation that investigates the role and meaning of “everything” in art. Ambitious in scope, but specific in concept, this roundtable will consider ideas of materiality and fullness, from assemblage to aggregate art, from attempts to collect “everything” to the desire to know “everything.” Looking back to historical precursors such as Arman, Douglas Huebler, and Andy Warhol, and forward to artists such as Song Dong, Camille Henrot, and Claire Fontaine, what questions regarding the impulse to hold on to “everything” recur? What roles do ecology, hoarding, theories of plentitude, and ideas of capacity continue to play? Free and open to the public. Pictured: Arman, Le Plein (Full Up), 1960. Medium: Multiple of sardine can filled with trash and exhibition invitation.
