"Xavier Foley is a standout player!" (The Philadelphia Inquirer) PROGRAM J.S. BACH - Cello suite no. 1, BWV 1007 SPERGER - Sonata in B minor FRANCK - Sonata in A major X. FOLEY - Irish Fantasy The Falling Seagull Hailing from Marietta, Georgia, double bassist Xavier Foley has captivated audiences "with superbly executed performances… playing fluidly and passionately" (Splash Magazine).

Edmar Castañeda Quartet featuring Jorge Glem - Dizzy's Club Coca Cola Through February 28, 2018 - New York

With harpist Edmar Castañeda, and cuatro player Jorge Glem Edmar Castañeda is an unparalleled virtuoso on the harp, recognized internationally for his stunning blend of jazz and foreign folk music, particularly from Colombia, Venezuela, and Argentina. His incredible dexterity and rhythmic independence beg for the cliché that he "must be seen to be believed," as audio alone gives the illusion of—at minimum—a bass and harp duo. This is a great opportunity to experience his artistry up-close and in-person in Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, as he is often found in large concert halls around the world, in Jazz at Lincoln Center's The Appel Room, or at Carnegie Hall. Tonight, his group is joined by a very special guest: Latin Grammy Award-winning cuatro player Jorge Glem. Glem is renowned for his mastery of the cuatro, including the use of unconventional techniques to draw a seemingly limitless array of sounds from the four-stringed instrument. It's hard to properly describe the effectiveness and sheer entertainment value of their combined virtuosity and musicality, so we recommend bringing a friend along for this one.

Plant selection, color coordination, and placement to solve garden problems are all part of Container Gardening. Master Gardener Volunteer Vivienne Dieckmann will be presenting this workshop. Please contact the venue for more information or to reserve your space in the program.

Sevdaliza (Teheran, Iran) is an autodidactic singer, songwriter, director and composer. Her creations contrast husky vocals with cutting strings and bass lines setting an enigmatic mood. Born in Iran and residing in the Netherlands, the 28-year-old has made quite the impression with her consistent release of audiovisual experiences. Sevdaliza's melancholic visceral voice floats over beds of thumping triphop dubs, married with classical harmonies. Rhythmic tensions build slowly into chaotic climaxes. Her work has been described as "genre- bending", drawing on various genres including electronic, punk, triphop, grime and the avant-garde. Her writing, influenced by greater novelists, has a philosophical questioning character; subjects like gender diversification and perception of emotion are strongly present. Masculine and feminine energy blend harmonically within. Sevdaliza plays with the simulation of identities and fantasies that can hardly be distinguished from reality. Creating a world where everything is possible. To Sevdaliza, expression comes forward in designing every detail in sound and imagery. Her music is charged with demanding energy and consists an enormous amount of dynamics. It portrays a porcelain yet deep fullness. Her creations attracted worldwide attention. She self-released her internationally acclaimed debut EP "The Suspended Kid and the follow-up "Children of Silk". Both EP's were well received worldwide with the likes of international press and fans. Meanwhile, her music has been synced on the runway and on screen for film and TV. Sevdaliza just debuted with the ISON LP. The release of this album was received with praise by basically all leading media worldwide. The release of the album was followed by a sold out headline tour through Europe and the US.

This assortment from the 2017 Here/Now Festival celebrates ballet today and what its future may hold.

He was trained to play the 21 stringed Kora (West African Harp) at the age of 8, by his father, renowned Kora player of that region, Alhaji Musa Makang Suso.

ArandaLasch + Marcelo Coelho's Window to the Heart - Duffy Square Through February 28, 2018 - Times Square

Window to the Heart is the winning design of this year’s Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition curated by the Design Trust for Public Space. This marks the 10th anniversary of the Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition, an annual event where Times Square Arts invites architecture and design firms to submit proposals for a public art installation celebrating Love in Times Square in February.

Window to the Heart places the world’s largest lens in the center of Times Square. The 12 foot in diameter Fresnel lens was designed with 3D-printing manufacturer Formlabs to distort and capture the image of Times Square, optically bending light – and attention – to the heart-shaped window at its center. Visitors can look through the window or photograph themselves within it, completing the loop between the lens of the eye and the lens of the camera.

Join us to celebrate Amy Bloom's compelling new novel, White Houses, about the love affair between Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok. Lorena Hickok meets Eleanor Roosevelt in 1932 while reporting on Franklin Roosevelt's first presidential campaign. Having grown up worse than poor in South Dakota and reinvented herself as the most prominent woman reporter in America, "Hick," as she's known to her friends and admirers, is not quite instantly charmed by the idealistic, patrician Eleanor. But then, as her connection with the future first lady deepens into intimacy, what begins as a powerful passion matures into a lasting love, and a life that Hick never expected to have. She moves into the White House, where her status as "first friend" is an open secret, as are FDR's own lovers. After she takes a job in the Roosevelt administration, promoting and protecting both Roosevelts, she comes to know Franklin not only as a great president but as a complicated rival and an irresistible friend, capable of changing lives even after his death. Through it all, even as Hick's bond with Eleanor is tested by forces both extraordinary and common, and as she grows as a woman and a writer, she never loses sight of the love of her life. Amy will be in conversation with Koa Beck, editor-in-chief of Jezebel.

Robbie Fulks is a singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter. His most recent release, 2017's Upland Stories, earned year's-best recognition from NPR and Rolling Stone among many others, as well as two Grammy® nominations, for folk album and American roots song ("Alabama At Night"). Fulks was born in York, Pennsylvania, and grew up in a half-dozen small towns in southeast Pennsylvania, the North Carolina Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge area of Virginia. He learned guitar from his dad, banjo from Earl Scruggs and John Hartford records, and fiddle (long since laid down in disgrace) on his own. He attended Columbia College in New York City in 1980 and dropped out in 1982 to focus on the Greenwich Village songwriter scene and other ill-advised pursuits. In 1983 he moved to Chicago and joined Greg Cahill's Special Consensus Bluegrass Band. He taught music at Old Town School of Folk Music from 1984 to 1996, and worked as a staff songwriter on Music Row in Nashville from 1993 to 1998. His early solo work -- Country Love Songs (1996) and South Mouth (1997) -- helped define the "alternative country" movement of the 1990s. His music from the last several years hews mainly to acoustic instrumentation; it returns him in part to his earlier bluegrass days, and extends the boundaries of that tradition with old-time rambles and sparely orchestrated reflections on love, the slings of time, and the troubles of common people.

Legendary drummer and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Jaimoe and his Jasssz Band play American music. They combine elements of Jazz, Blues, Rock-n-Roll, and R&B into a unique blend that captures the spirit and stirs the soul. Their repertoire ranges from new interpretations of classic tunes, as well as original songs that are classics in the making. Jaimoe's Jasssz Band features Jaimoe – drums, Junior Mack – guitar and vocals, Dave Stoltz – bass, Bruce Katz – keyboards, and some of the finest horn players of our time, including Paul Lieberman – sax, flute, and piccalo, Kris Jensen – sax and Reggie Pittman – trumpet. Jaimoe, man of many names, and one of the original six band members, has combined forces with fellow drummer and percussionist Butch Trucks in a million subtle, driving, playful, and energizing ways to keep the music on track and flowing. Jaimoe himself contributes the following biographical insights: This is Jaimoe. No, I did not play at Monterey. I played with Otis Redding 4/18/66 through 9/5/66 in the band that did "Otis – Live at the Whiskey A-Go-Go". I joined that band a week after that record was recorded. A very good friend of mine, a very good sax player and a hell of an organizer, Donald "Cadillac" Henry, was a great reason for me getting that break and a lot of others, right up to the fact of the reason I was in Macon was because Donald told me to go to Macon. Phil Walden was putting a recording studio in Macon which was Capricorn Records. Phil Walden and Otis Redding had a company called Redwal Music.

Danspace Project's public opening for Dancing Platform Praying Grounds: Blackness, Churches, and Downtown Dance (Platform 2018) will take place in the historic Great Hall at The Cooper Union, the same auditorium where Abraham Lincoln made his famous speech against the expansion of slavery. On this occasion Danspace celebrates the release of its 12th Platform catalogue with words, movement, and song featuring Platform 2018 curator, choreographer Reggie Wilson, and other participants. In the accompanying catalogue for Platform 2018, historical research, personal testimony, original artwork, interviews, and historic photographs uncover the intersecting ways places of worship have shaped religious, African Diasporic, and postmodern dance practices over past centuries. Contributors include Lauren Bakst, Lydia Bell, Thomas F. DeFrantz, Stephen Facey, Keely Garfield, Judy Hussie-Taylor, Darrell Jones, Prathibha Kanakamedala, Kelly Kivland, Cynthia Oliver, Susan Osberg, Carl Paris, Same As Sister (Hilary Brown and Briana Brown-Tipley), Radhika Subramaniam, Kamau Ware, Ni'Ja Whitson, Tara Aisha Willis, and Reggie Wilson. The catalogue, designed by Raja Feather Kelly, and edited by Lydia Bell, Kristin Juarez, and Reggie Wilson, echoes Wilson's choreographic logic and research methodology that reflect the complexity of time, space, and movement across the African Diaspora. Now in its fourth decade, Danspace Project has supported a vital community of contemporary dance artists in an environment unlike any other in the United States. Located in the historic St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery, Danspace shares its facility with the Church, The Poetry Project, and New York Theatre Ballet.

Ian Hobson — Sound Impressions: The Piano Music of Debussy & Ravel - SubCulture February 28, 2018 - New York

The immensely versatile and renowned pianist Ian Hobson, whose playing has been described by Gramophone as "intensely alive to expressive nuance, textural clarity and elastic shaping," will perform Sound Impressions: The Piano Music of Debussy and Ravel, a six-recital cycle of the complete solo piano works of the two composers, at SubCulture. The series will take place over the course of six months, from November 2017 to April 2018. Mr. Hobson's recitals will explore Debussy's revolutionary quest to reach beyond traditional harmonic means to portray people and nature in an ambiguous yet still immediate reality; as well as Ravel's brilliant, sometimes darkly-menacing solo piano works which tease the imagination with skillfully wrought intimations of spooky fairy tales, faraway places, and Gothic fantasies.

"Injury Reserve, a rap trio from Phoenix who recorded their debut mixtape in a dentist's office (and titled it Live from the Dentist Office), have had an interesting journey from the suburbs to a coveted "A MINUS" from Robert Christgau, the "Dean of American rock critics," in his column for Noisey. From playing house shows to being played on Beats 1 Radio by Ebro. How did it all happen? What makes producer Parker Corey (age 21) and rappers Stepa J. Groggs (age 29) and Ritchie With a T (age 22) special? For Complex, it's their boundary-pushing, "DIY weirdness." For Billboard, their fashion sense and fearless honesty. Pigeons and Planes admires their group dynamic, calling them "one of the best new groups in hip-hop," while Mass Appeal nods to their cinematic vision. Anthony Fantano's interest in their ability to balance tradition with innovation is well-documented on the Needle Drop, where he published 8/10 reviews of Live from the Dentist Office and last year's Floss. The latter, a major breakthrough for the group with features from Cakes da Killa and Vic Mensa, is energetic, refined, and in Christgau's words, "the most unpretentious hip-hop you ever heard." While they do like to keep a low profile, often straining to appear unaffected by the attention, the reality is that a lot has changed lately in the lives of Corey, Groggs, and Ritchie. They moved their studio from the Phoenix dental office where Corey's grandfather practices to a house in Altadena, California, and upon arrival recorded seven of the most aggressively forward-thinking tracks in their catalog, provocative as it already is. Drive It Like It's Stolen, the groups newest project, plays contrasting and sometimes contradictory signs of emotional tone against one another in the same style as, but more concisely and perhaps successfully than, Floss."

Hyper-Efficient Building Workshop: Strategies for Complying with Local Law 31 - Center for Architecture February 28, 2018 - Manhattan

In 2016, New York City passed Local Laws 31 & 32, aimed at strengthening existing sustainability requirements and introducing new measures that will make NYC-owned buildings among the most efficient in the country. Specifically, Local Law 31 requires new municipal buildings to use 50% less energy compared to code or the median energy use for buildings of that type in New York-radically more efficient than most buildings currently being built. Through these laws, most new city buildings and major retrofits must achieve LEED Gold status and cut energy use in half. To assist the professional community in preparing to meet this challenge, AIANY and Urban Green Council will offer in-depth training on the design of hyper-efficient buildings and compliance with LL31/32. The two-day workshops are limited to 25 participants and open to all architects, designers, engineers, and construction trade professionals.

Adventure Canada, The Explorers Club's polar travel provider, proudly presents The March Hare New York Programme. What is the Hare? A night of storytelling and songs from some of Newfoundland's finest talents. Since 1987, writers, musicians, and anyone who hates Newfoundland winters have been sharing poetry, prose, tunes, and pranks at a cozy pub in Corner Brook to stay warm. Somehow, over the years, this vigorous but humble celebration has transformed into a literary festival that features not only the work of local poets but also some of the best writers from Canada and beyond—as well as music from some of the finest professional musicians in Newfoundland and Labrador. Named after Lewis Carroll's neurotic rabbit and born of the musically poetic loins of Al Pittman, Rex Brown, and George Daniels, the March Hare now travels all over Newfoundland and Labrador and has spread throughout Canada. This year marks its third trip south of the border to the United States, and will be featured for one night only at The Explorers Club.

Chicago native Greg Murphy has been a major contributor to the New York City jazz scene since the 1980s and he's probably best known for his twenty-two year association with John Coltrane's multidirectional drummer, Rashied Ali. Greg began his musical adventures in 1971 when he joined the Ray-Fisk Grammar School Band in Chicago. His classical studies began later that year with Lucia Santini at Roosevelt University. Between 1980 and 1984, he played with the jazz/funk band Lightning Flash Thunder Roar, The University of Illinois at Chicago Big Band, The Northern Illinois University Big Band, and other local Chicago bands. A jazz study grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1984 gave Greg the opportunity to go to New Orleans and study with the eminent pianist and jazz educator, Ellis Marsalis. He remained there and began recording and performing with The New Orleans Jazz Couriers, Percussion Incorporated, and his own group, The Fusicians. The Percussion Incorporated album, Drum Talk, (Greg's first recording) was recorded and released in 1987. While living in the crescent city, Greg performed with Donald Harrison, Wynton Marsalis, and countless other great musicians.

Romanian conductor Sergiu Celibidache is remembered as an idiosyncratic perfectionist averse to making recordings, preferring his audiences to be present for live performances. Fortunately, a number of recordings do exist, including this video footage of Celibidache's demanding, extensive rehearsal process on two works. First, Ravel's Boléro with the Swedish National Radio Symphony, captured during the years he completely rebuilt the orchestra as its chief conductor. Then, a return late in life to conduct Bruckner's Seventh Symphony with the Berlin Philharmonic, where he had served as principal conductor four decades earlier.

Hear & Now is the past and the present. The point of view of today with foundation in the roots of jazz and American music. Finzer's music evokes a need and hope for change, a defiant optimism that pits love against the forces of oppression.

Influenced by the numerous bands of Duke Ellington, Chick Corea, John Coltrane, and Michael Brecker, Hear & Now is poised to share this generation's perspectives on jazz with the world today. The band embarked on a 25 city tour of the US, and made their festival debut in July 2017 at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy.

Bassist and composer Martin Nevin will present an evening featuring music from his upcoming release, Tenderness is Silent. The band is comprised of some of Martin's closest friends and collaborators.

The HOPE Program lifts New Yorkers out of poverty through training, jobs, and career advancement. We serve 450 New Yorkers each year. Our students are some of our city's most vulnerable residents, men and women who are overcoming significant challenges – communities of poverty and violence, low educational attainment, histories of substance abuse and homelessness, and criminal justice involvement. At HOPE, our comprehensives programming provides training and access to industry-leading certifications with computer and financial literacy, work wellness, access to free breakfast and lunch, MetroCards, art therapy and improv workshops, and a network of support. As a result, our job retention and job placement rates are among the strongest in the field, nationwide. While the unemployment rate has improved, there are still hundreds of thousands of out-of-work New Yorkers eager to earn a living and provide for their families. The data tells us that people of color, jobseekers without a high school education, disconnected youth, immigrants and individuals with criminal justice histories face disproportionate challenges to entering the workforce.

During the Civil War, Missouri and Kentucky—the slave-holding Border States dividing North and South—became major battlegrounds, not only for formal combat but also for violent political discord, martial law, governments in exile, and "bushwhackers"—perpetrators of guerrilla warfare that included the Missouri pro-Confederate group, Quantrill's Raiders. Leading Civil War experts discuss the contentious region's greater impact on the course of the war and the path to reunion and emancipation. John F. Marszalek is William L.

Under Capricorn. 1949. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art February 28, 2018 - New York

Under Capricorn. 1949. USA. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Screenplay by James Bridie, from the play by John Colton and Margaret Linden, based on the novel by Helen Simpson. With Ingrid Bergman, Joseph Cotten, Michael Wilding. 35mm print. 116 min. Hitchcock returned to England to film this historical drama set in colonial Australia and photographed in Technicolor by Jack Cardiff. Though it disappointed audiences at the time of its release (largely because Hitchcock had dared to depart from the suspense genre), its audacious use of extreme long takes endeared it to the emerging generation of auteurist critics. Jean-Luc Godard once proclaimed it Hitchcock's best. Print courtesy ConstellationCenter Collection at the Academy Film Archive.

Times Square Arts Presents the winning design of this year’s Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition, Window to the Heart by ArandaLasch + Marcelo Coelho - Times Square Through February 28, 2018 - New York

Times Square Arts has announced that collaborators ArandaLasch + Marcelo Coelho are the winners of this year’s annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design curated by the Design Trust for Public Space. This year’s winning design, Window to the Heart, will be unveiled on February 1st. The installation will remain on view for the month of February. This marks the 10th anniversary of the Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition, an annual event where Times Square Arts invites architecture and design firms to submit proposals for a public art installation celebrating Love in Times Square in February. In one of the world’s most Instagrammed places, filled with cameras of all shapes and sizes, Window to the Heart places the world’s largest lens in the center of Times Square. The 12 foot in diameter Fresnel lens was designed with 3D-printing manufacturer Formlabs to distort and capture the image of Times Square, optically bending light – and attention – to the heart-shaped window at its center. Visitors can look through the window or photograph themselves within it, completing the loop between the lens of the eye and the lens of the camera. Rather than using the traditional lens-making methods of casting, cutting, and repeatedly polishing glass, Window to the Heart will leverage the latest advances in design, materials, and fabrication to craft something that was previously unattainable. Each lens segment is 3D-printed at a high resolution by Formlabs using clear resin, a material capable of the unique surface quality and clarity required by optical elements. With the lens made entirely from a 3D-printed material instead of glass, Window to the Heart upends the centuries-old methods of lens-making to invite individuals to reimagine how they see and photograph the world.

The small Brooklyn district of DUMBO was in its industrial heyday when the Erie Canal opened and steamships carried freight to and from its waterfront.Large scale manufacturing and warehousing thrived. But in the 1920s factories started closing, and gradually the neighborhood lost its vitality. In the late 1970s, artists and other bohemians began settling quietly into the empty factory buildings. These residents brought a cachet to the area. Soon other creative entrepreneurs moved into the large loft spaces, and developers saw a great opportunity for new residential real estate.

Greetings, from Queer Mountain Showcase - Housing Works - Bookstore Cafe February 28, 2018 - New York

"This biography rose to the top because it tells Clark's story-from her childhood fascination with sharks to becoming a scientist who was able to train them-without overwhelming kids with text. 'After I read this book with my 6-year-old daughter, she told me that she wanted to be a scientist,' beamed one dad." — Parents "A tribute to the courage and indomitable will of the renowned ichthyologist. This eloquent profile follows Clark from a childhood visit to an aquarium through her demonstration that sharks can actually be trained and so are not 'mindless killers' as widely supposed" — Kirkus"Keating offers a lively portrait of scientist Eugenie Clark, who pursued a passion for sharks. Through Clark's story, Keating suggests that, with perseverance, a childhood fascination can evolve into a life's work." — Publishers Weekly

The way Corey Smith sees it, he owes a debt to his fans. And it's one he is determined to repay with his 10th album, While the Gettin' Is Good. The project, released on Sugar Hill Records, marks the first time that the singer-songwriter, a wildly popular touring artist who has produced all of his past efforts, has turned over the reins to a bona fide country music producer in Keith Stegall. The result is Smith's most ambitious record yet, as well as a return on the investment made by the fans who have supported him since his first album in 2003. "A lot of start-up acts are using fan-funded programs to finance their record. That's what my whole career has been: Kickstarter before Kickstarter. When my fans show up and buy a ticket and a t-shirt, they're investing in what I'm doing," says Corey. "It's my responsibility to invest it wisely and give them the best album I can. That's what led me to While the Gettin' Is Good."

Leftover in China: The Women Shaping the World's Next Superpower - 92Y February 28, 2018 - Upper East Side

Author Roseann Lake explores the lives of China's first generation of only daughters — the unexpected byproducts of the one-child policy who were pushed to study and succeed as if they were sons. She offers both critiques of China's paternalistic ideals and a portrait of the romantic travails of China's trailblazing women and their well-meaning parents, who are desperate to see their daughters virtuously snuggled into wedlock. Now unprecedentedly well educated and living in an economic powerhouse, many have decided to postpone or forego marriage, spawning a label: "leftovers."

Amy Chua in Conversation with Gen. (Ret.) David H. Petraeus: On Political Tribes - 92Y February 28, 2018 - Upper East Side

Whether or not we like to admit it, tribalism is a reality. People band together in groups based on their backgrounds, their faiths, their political affiliations. And when we ignore this crucial fact, we do so at our own peril. That's the passionate thesis of bestselling Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother author Amy Chua's bold new book, Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations. For decades, Chua argues, America has shown a shocking blindness to the importance of group identity — in our foreign as well as our domestic policy — and we've paid a steep price for it. So how can we move past facile notions of unity to a real unity that acknowledges the reality of group differences and fights the deep inequalities that divide us? Join Chua and General (Ret) David H. Petraeus for a timely, urgent talk.

From first draft to final draft, we require strategies for seeing the whole poem, both its full potential for content and its most satisfying form. We require, as Charles Olson said, the intense perception of the first draft—to "see" not only the spark but all of the light that makes a poem glow. Then we need to "re-see" the poem, practicing the kind of deep revision that leads us to reconsider everything from word choice and vivid image to metaphoric subtext, grammatical pattern, and inner music of the poem. We'll use poems from such poets as Anne Carson, C. D. Wright, Yusuf Komunyakaa, Sharon Olds, Marilyn Nelson, Mark Doty, Rigoberto González, Ada Limón, Tyehimba Jess, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Arthur Sze, Reginald Shepherd, Tony Hoagland, Jane Hirshfield, Khaled Mattawa, and Naomi Shihab Nye to examine specific technical issues, but we'll use your own poems as the focus and force of workshop discussion. In addition, we'll consider writing exercises that might steer you toward new strategies and discoveries in making a poem.

It's Always Late for Freedom + the Last Days of Winter - Anthology Film Archives February 28, 2018 - New York

IT'S ALWAYS LATE FOR FREEDOM / HAMISHE BARAYE AZADI DIR AST (2007, 52 min, digital. In Farsi with English subtitles.) IT'S ALWAYS LATE FOR FREEDOM is the first film in Oskouei's trilogy about teenagers and prison. As always, Oskouei excels at developing a rare level of trust with his subjects, who seem completely natural as they discuss profoundly difficult subjects. The film includes images of 12-year-old boys writhing in agony as they suffer through crack withdrawal. Less concerned with the root social causes of his subjects' social problems than in the subsequent two films in the trilogy, Oskouei here carefully avoids demonizing prison or the people who work there. His ability to frame teenagers in revealing ways is striking, particularly given the limited space with which he had to work. & THE LAST DAYS OF WINTER / AKHARIN ROUZHAYE ZEMESTAN (2011, 52 min, digital. In Farsi with English subtitles.) The second part of Oskouei's trilogy, THE LAST DAYS OF WINTER depicts a group of shockingly young boys, all apparently drug addicts who wound up in trouble for stealing to support their habits. The film includes elements of cinema vérité, but the camerawork is closer to neo-realism, and Oskouei calls frequent attention to his own presence: although he never appears on-camera, his voice is heard throughout. He manages to achieve a rare degree of intimacy with his subjects, as they talk to the camera about deeply personal ideas, and when he goes outside with them, he has a knack for picking just the right locations in which to film them.

Hosted by Georgia Clark Featuring Milly Tamarez, Elliott Sailors, Lois Thompson, Stephanie Gangi, and More TBA Generation Women is a cross-generational storytelling event that amplifies women's voices and creativity. Host and event co-founder Georgia Clark (author of The Regulars and the YA novels She's with the Band and Parched), was moved to create Generation Women following conversations with her mother, Jayne, about the sense that women disappear from public conversation as they get older. Clark was inspired to create a safe and welcoming space where women of all ages could join together to be celebrated, explore their experiences and learn from one another. "We live in a society that simply doesn't value older women," says Clark. "With Generation Women, we've created an event where women can come together to tell their own stories and glean vital and vibrant cross-generational wisdom. Also, we can drink wine. Wine is very important." Generation Women combines the vivacity of a literary salon with the importance of a community meeting where elders and youth exchange shared wisdom. This unique and intimate monthly female symposium features representative speakers in their twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, sixties and seventy-and-over presenting short original essays and experiences centered on a given topic. In an aggressively dark political moment, this monthly event showcases the hearts and minds of strong women when we need them most. All are welcome to join and learn. The theme for February's performance: Time's Up. It's THE rallying cry of 2018, and we want to know what you've said "time's up" to in your life. Maybe you've said "time's up" in the more traditional sense: to the office creep/mansplainer/patriarchal a**hole. Maybe you've said "time's up" to negative self-talk to a bad relationship or no relationship. To impossible standards or an impossible diet. We're not looking for your hot take on Time's Up as a movement, but a first-person personal story that shares something of your life with our audience.

It's official: Britain's influential MOJO Magazine has named the Chris Bergson Band's Bitter Midnight (Continental Record Services) as one of the Best Albums of 2017. Bitter Midnight came in at No. 3 on MOJO's list of the Top Ten Blues Albums of the year, as compiled by blues–and–roots music scholar Tony Russell. In his December 2017 MOJO review, Russell wrote: "With his sixth album, Bergson again proves himself an expert writer of blues short stories in which he directs a steady, undeceived gaze at change and loss…and tries to sustain himself with small, remembered felicities." The well–traveled cast of Bitter Midnight includes soul singer Ellis Hooks, saxophonist Jay Collins (Gregg Allman Band), bassist Andy Hess (Gov't Mule), and drummer Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors.) "Throughout this expertly balanced mixture of blues, funk, R&B and soul, Bergson sings confidently through taut lyrics with more matured vocals since his extensive touring."

"Five songs in, I pulled off the road… The songs had stirred something in me and I felt the need to understand. I was soon on the road again, enclosed in a world Mure had made. While my eyes were awake and alert, my soul was wrapped in a warm cocoon." -No Depression New York City native Emily Mure has journeyed from playing concert halls as a classically trained oboist to busking as a singer-songwriter on the streets of Ireland. Her third album, Worth (September 22, 2017), brings together all of her rich experiences as a musical traveler, spotlighting both her technical ability and gift for vulnerable, heartfelt songwriting. Mure co-produced the album with Dan Cardinal (Darlingside, Josh Ritter, Ballroom Thieves), with Zachariah Hickman (Josh Ritter, Ray LaMontagne) performing the majority of instruments on this record. Jeff Lipton (Andrew Bird, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver) mastered the album in Boston. Mure's songwriting, which she began cultivating during her years at Ithaca College, has been recognized in prestigious national competitions (Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival) and has been featured on networks including NBC, ABC and PBS. As a live performer, she has shared the stage with notable musicians including Darlingside, Joe Crookston, the Bones of J.R. Jones, and the Duhks. Letitia VanSant "...a consummate reflection of a rising Americana star." - PopMatters Letitia VanSant writes lyrics that trace the roots of the world's challenges into the soul. Hailed as one of Baltimore's strongest songwriters, her distinctly intimate voice is fortified by sparse indie folk and Americana arrangements. Songs from her upcoming album Gut It to the Studs have already won critical acclaim from all across the map, including Kerrville New Folk, the Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest, Falcon Ridge, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and Culture Trip's Top 8 DC-Area Musicians to Follow.

Old Dog + Leaving Fear Behind: Cinema of Resistance in Tibet - Videology Bar & Cinema February 28, 2018 - Brooklyn

Stick around after the film for a discussion in the bar! Each ticket includes a free drink after the film with leaders in the Tibetan Freedom Movement from Students for a Free Tibet. Old Dog – Dir. Pema Tseden. 2012. 88 min. Leaving Fear Behind – Dir. Dhondup Wangchen and Jigme Gyatso. 2008. 25 min. Leaving Fear Behind, a short film by self-taught Tibetan filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen, is an extraordinary glimpse into Tibetan sentiment on the eve of the Beijing Olympics in 2008. "An unadorned indictment of the Chinese government" (The New York Times), the film landed Wangchen in prison for 6 years on charges of "inciting separatism." Students for a Free Tibet was among the groups that campaigned for his freedom. In December he finally escaped Tibet and joined his family after ten years of separation. Old Dog is both a humorous and tragic allegory and a sober depiction of life in contemporary rural Tibet. The Tibetan nomad mastiff, an exotic prize dog in China, fetches millions of dollars from wealthy Chinese. When a young man notices several thefts of mastiffs from Tibetan farm families, he decides to sell his family's dog before it is stolen and sold on the black market. His father, an aging Tibetan herder, is furious when he discovers their dog missing. When the father seeks to buy the dog back, it leads to a series of tragicomic events that threaten to tear the family apart. Weaving together narrative strands of humor and gravity, Old Dog beautifully depicts life among the rural Tibetan people and the erosion of Tibetan culture under the pressures of contemporary society. Director Pema Tseden is the leading filmmaker of a newly emerging Tibetan cinema and the first director in China to film his movies entirely in the Tibetan language. "Part neorealistic parable and part Jarmusch-like deadpan riff… It's both a sly piece of ethnography and a social satire that reads like a cosmic joke, right up until its climax makes the chuckle catch in your throat." – Time Out New York "A grim and uncompromising allegory of the waning of Tibetan traditions and values… Raw and resolute, this unsettling fable feels driven by an anger that remains largely unexpressed. Akku may say very little, but his resolve is clear: whatever else the Chinese may have taken, they're not getting his dog." – The New York Times Students for a Free Tibet works in solidarity with the Tibetan people in their struggle for freedom and independence. They are a chapter-based network of young people and activists around the world. Through education, grassroots organizing, and non-violent direct action, they campaign for Tibetans' fundamental right to political freedom. Their role is to empower and train youth as leaders in the worldwide movement for social justice.

Although not widely known, Donald Trump was once a huge fan of the Beatles. After watching women flock to and swoon over the Beatles, Trump became "unhinged" with jealousy and began to lash out at them. Referring to them as "The Loser Beatles", he made it his mission to show that they were "dumb" and "untalented". Toward that end, he used his considerable financial means to commission an up-and-coming band to give up their own musical dreams and become "The Trump Beatles".

A passion for exploration comes naturally to Xylouris White, the ruggedly visionary duo formed of Cretan lute player George Xylouris and Australian drummer Jim White. For their debut album, 2014's Goats, Xylouris White compared themselves to the titular animals, wandering fearlessly through rough-hewn terrain. Two years later, they showed how far their horizons could reach on 2016's majestically expansive Black Peak, named after a mountain top in Crete. Just 15 well-toured months later, the duo's exploratory instincts drive them further onwards still on their third album, Mother, released 19th January on Bella Union, and named to denote "new life". As Xylouris puts it, "Mother is the extension of Goats and Black Peak. Three things, all part of a whole. Goats are mothers, Zeus was raised on Amaltheia's milk, Black Peak is Mother Earth… Mother Earth is the mother of everything." The duo have shared a first track from the album titled "Only Love", which is steaming HERE, while the album is available to preorder here.

Q&A with Anahí Berneri. Ticket holders are invited to an Opening Night reception, courtesy of Cinema Tropical, following the screening. Winner of the Best Director and Best Actress awards at the San Sebastian Film Festival, the fifth feature by Argentinian filmmaker Anahí Berneri is a poignant and compelling drama that portrays three days in the life of a young Buenos Aires mother and sex worker struggling to survive. Featuring a potent performance by Sofía Gala Castiglione in the title role (alongside her real-life son Dante), the film offers an unsentimental and non-moralizing take on a self-determined woman trying to live her unapologetic life while facing contradictory prostitution laws that are intended to protect her but often do the opposite. U.S. Premiere

António, one, two, three - António um dois três - Film Society of Lincoln Center February 28, 2018 - Midtown West

Ticket holders are invited to an Opening Night reception, courtesy of Cinema Tropical, before the screening. Reminiscent of the films of Hong Sangsoo and Matías Piñeiro, Mouramateus's debut offers a simple yet scrambled tale of love, longing, and the theater. After angering his father, António seeks refuge in his ex-girlfriend Mariana's Lisbon apartment, where he meets Débora, a Brazilian woman on her way to Russia. Inevitably, he ends up romantically involved in different ways with each of them. Meanwhile, António's autobiographical play—which borrows from Dostoevsky's White Nights—complicates our understanding of his motivations and our own relationship to the film (which is also based on White Nights). As the film goes on, repetitions of scenes (with slight alterations) further speak to the ambivalence of young love. U.S. Premiere

OSHA 10 Construction Industry Safety and Health Training Part I & II - NYCharities Through February 28, 2018 - New York

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10-hour Construction Industry class provides important training on workers' rights and common workplace hazards and injuries. All students who complete this 10-hour training receive the yellow-stripe OSHA 10 construction card. New York City Department of Buildings mandates that all workers at major construction sites must have attended this OSHA 10-hour Construction Industry safety class within the last five years. DOB inspectors regularly visit job sites to check for OSHA cards, and any laborer without an OSHA card will be ejected from the job. Taking this course helps students to remain safety compliant and maintain their current employment or to become safety compliant as a first step towards qualifying to be hired in the construction field. This training is intended to provide entry level workers at construction sites information about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify, abate, avoid, and prevent job related hazards on a job site. The training covers a variety of construction industry safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter. Training will emphasize hazard identification, avoidance control, and prevention, not OSHA standards. Part I topics include Introduction to OSHA, your rights as a worker, Chemical Hazard Communication, Personal Protective Equipment, & OSHA Fatality/Catastrophe report Part II topics include the Construction Focus Four, the four most common deadly hazards at construction sites: Fall Hazards, Electrical Hazards, Struck-By Hazards, and Caught-in-between Hazards.

Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

Canadian singer, trumpeter, and songwriter Bria Skonberg is described by The Wall Street Journal as one of the "most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation." Recognized as one of "25 for the Future" by DownBeat magazine (Summer 2016), Skonberg is signed to Sony Music Masterworks' OKeh Records, and released her debut LP, simply titled BRIA, in 2016. The stunning album won the 2017 Canadian Juno Award from "Vocal Jazz Album" of the year. She will release her new album "With A Twist" on May 19th, 2017. Wielding a unique blend of modern-day pop sensibility and sizzling musicianship, Skonberg aims for a sense of allure on the new collection. She credits producer Matt Pierson with helping her create music that is both curious and exotic, playing with tension and storytelling. Elite jazz chops, artfully mixed with worldly rhythms and contemporary songwriting, result in a sophisticated pop sound closely resembling that of Michael Bublé, Diana Krall, and Harry Connick Jr.

Lynnette Regouby – Threshold: Generations of Change in Botanical Practice at the end of the Ancien Regime - Department of History (Fayerweather) February 28, 2018 - New York

Speaker: Lynnette Regouby Fougeroux de Bondaroy spent his life in the shadows. His uncle, Duhamel du Monceau, invested the family fortune and decades of labor growing, cutting, and experimenting on trees that could inform the French navy of better ways to grow timber. Fougeroux was absorbed into this world at his mother's death, adopted and trained by his uncle to tend to research subjects whose lives would extend past their own. As a botanist in his own right, Fougeroux's research remained anchored to his uncle's legacy, even as he navigated new scientific, social and political contexts on the eve of the Revolution. Duhamel and Fougeroux lived and worked in the same spaces, institutions, and disciplines, and addressed the same experiments a generation apart. This talk will explore the personal and professional intimacies that sustained a research program dependent on time, the benefit and burden of that intellectual inheritance, and the role of institutions and communities whose perpetual lives made them essential for carrying research forward into the future. This event is free and open to the public. This event is part of the New York History of Science Lecture Series.

Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. Melvin is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become "Jam Band Music". From blues to funk to rock to jazz, Melvin Seals serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up. Melvin and JGB bring an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations of Zach Nugent's guitar and vocals, John Paul McLean's savory bass, Pete Lavezzoli's hearty drums and, of course, a heapin' helpin' of the wizard's magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. Along with Shirley Starks and Cheryl Rucker on back-up vocals, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience dancing and smiling (and some staring in amazement) for hours. Adding his rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder Jerry nicknamed him "Master of the Universe". Melvin continues to treat music lovers to his unique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself! JGB Band is: Melvin Seals - Hammond B3 and Leslies, Roland RD700 Keyboard, vocals Dave Hebert - Guitar, lead vocals John Paul McLean - Bass Pete Lavezzoli - Drums Shirley Starks and Cheryl Rucker - backing vocals

The Parallel State is a multi-layered investigation that took place in Turkey from 2012 to 2016. Turkey is a complex story to tell, all too often reduced to simple narratives and visual cliché. Guy Martin has assembled a body of work that chronicles the massive and often violent events unfolding on the ground. Running parallel to this, he has documented the fictional world of Turkish TV and soap opera sets that mirror Turkey's recent history. Adding this additional layer has enabled him to delve deeper into the story and reveal the powerful relationship between TV, computer screens, and people's actions on the street. When witnessing tragic events, he was left wondering whether anything had in fact not been carefully stage-managed. Physical and virtual worlds overlay, conflict, betray, and manipulate each other. Martin's work transcends Turkey and acts as a timely, dark, and paranoid vision for what happens when men in power implement divisive narratives, dividing the population with fearful stories and creating a vacuum of the truth-based reality. In this program, Martin guides the audience through a multi-layered experience designed to illuminate the different pathways through which he investigated the troubled political and social state of Turkey, and by implication, the possibilities for performing similar work in other nations and states around the world. This is a free event, but please register in advance. ICP Members have access to the best seats at our public programs in our reserved members' section.

A multi-ethnic British-Nigerian girl brought up on the mean streets of Cardiff Wales. An extraordinarily white New Mexican brought up on the wind-swept prairie. The similarities are astounding! One has won countless awards the world over; the other once got a blue ribbon from the county fair. One has recorded historic themes for no less than three James Bond films; the other has seen those movies at least once. One was named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire; the other has been called a big ole queen more than a few times. But both have voices so big, they'll blow your damned wig clear across the street! And now they meet on stage for the very first time! John Burns and Dame Shirley Bassey!

Ecstatic Music Festival: Arone Dyer's Dronechoir Miracle & Mahogany L. Browne - Kaufman Music Center March 01, 2018 - New York

The Mowgli's The Mowgli's One of the most exciting things in all of music is discovering a band early on, following them throughout their career and watching that moment as they come into their own. For California alt-pop band THE MOWGLI'S that moment is two-fold on their superb third album "Where'd Your Weekend Go?," due fall 2016. They not only get to share their songwriting growth with fans who have followed the band since they formed in 2010, the band got to experience it themselves. Ask singers and principal songwriters KATIE EARL, JOSH HOGAN and COLIN DIEDEN the secret to the band's growth on this new album and they will all say it came from within. "Involving the whole band in the writing process was a hugely important factor in this new record. When everyone's there you just have more brains, more minds," HOGAN says. EARL echoes this: "A lot of our songs start with one or two people's ideas and the band puts their mark on them later. This time we spent a great deal of time in the room together as the six of us, building many songs from the ground up." The results of incorporating band members whose tastes run from "musical theater to black metal to pop" according to HOGAN, are an incredibly diverse collection of songs that run like a musical time machine through the best of the past four decades of music. From the jangly folk/pop of the Sixties-infused "Arms & Legs,"and the groovy Seventies feel of "Monster" to the 80's inspired "Bad Thing" and anthemic "Spiderweb" this latest collection is a testament to songwriting.

The mother-daughter team Gabrielle Rossmer Gropman and Sonya Gropman, authors of The German-Jewish Cookbook: Recipes and History of a Cuisine, discuss the food of their German-Jewish heritage, offering recipes which are surprising yet simple to make with pioneering food writer and author of The German Cookbook, Mimi Sheraton.

Honoring the season, they will discuss a typical traditional Purim treat, Hamans, and also various Passover dishes from the cookbook.

Now Extended Through March 4 Only! Off-Broadway Premiere a co-production with The Bushwick Starr in association with New Georges by Kate Benson directed by Lee Sunday Evans with Noel Joseph Allain, Kate Benson, Ugo Chukwu, Jorge Cordova, Leah Karpel, and Julia Sirna-Frest "A stealthily ferocious, comfortingly hopeful, very funny new play. An exhortation to get out of your head and live, in thoughtful pursuit of joy." –The New York Times "Laugh-out-loud hilarious." –New York Magazine "Hugely worth seeing." Four Stars! A Critics Pick! –Time Out New York "Magical, mischievous, and just plan hilarious." –Theatermania A woman walks into a bar. Her name is Porto. She's a regular. She likes this bar: serious food, serious wine, serious bartender–a staple in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood (perhaps Bushwick?). Her friends, her wine, and her artisanal snacks are there; her doubts about being a Modern Woman are put on snooze. A handsome stranger walks in and orders something special. Disruption ensues: an upside-down romantic comedy unfolds inside and outside her head. Desires of all kinds are awakened with a ferocious thump. A nice smile is a nice smile, but can we enjoy the sausage once we know how it's made? WP Theater teams up with The Bushwick Starr in association with New Georges to present the Off-Broadway debut of the sold-out hit [PORTO] by Kate Benson and directed by WP Theater Lab Alum Lee Sunday Evans, whose last collaboration, the Obie Award-winning A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes, was a smash success at WP in 2015. [PORTO] was initially produced by WP Theater Lab Alum Rachel Karpf, John Del Gaudio and The Bushwick Starr, where it received its world premiere in their 2016-17 Season.

The award-winning essayist, classicist, translator, and cultural critic speaks about his latest book with BPAC Director, Ted Altschuler. Mendelsohn recounts his travels around the Mediterranean with his late father, a scientist, while reading Homer’s Odyssey, making for a book that is, according to New York Times critic Dwight Garner, classroom drama, travel writing, biographical memoir, and literary criticism. “…this is a rich introduction or reintroduction. Mendelsohn makes Homer’s epic shine in your mind. I was impressed by how lightly yet superbly he wears his learning in An Odyssey,” wrote Garner, “What catches you off guard about this memoir is how moving it is.”

With over 50 million downloads, Hollywood fans including Elijah Wood, Daisy Ridley & Michael Sheen and rave reviews from the likes of Variety, The Guardian, GQ and Entertainment Weekly, My Dad Wrote A Porno is quite simply 'a cultural phenomenon' (Time Out). Imagine if your dad wrote a dirty book. Most people would try to ignore it - but not Jamie Morton. Instead, he decided to read it to the world in this hilarious comedy podcast. With the help of his best mates, James Cooper and Radio 1 DJ Alice Levine, Jamie reads a chapter a week and discovers more about his father than he ever bargained for. Written under his nom de porn, Rocky Flintstone, Jamie's dad tells the compelling tale of Belinda Blumenthal as she tries to succeed in the 'sexy' world of the pots and pans industry. Part erotic novella, part business manual, Rocky was inspired by the success of what he calls '50 Colours of Grey', and the result is the most unintentionally hilarious novel you will ever hear. After two record breaking series, which saw them seize the number 1 spot on iTunes charts around the globe, team porno have expanded the brand beyond the podcast. 2016 saw the publication of their bestselling book and live shows based on the ubiquitous Belinda Blinked novels have sold out venues like the Sydney Opera House in minutes, crashing websites and jamming phone lines. In addition, their one off Christmas special charted around the world, most impressively storming to the top of the UK iTunes Album chart, unseating the likes of Bruno Mars and festive favourite Michael Bublé.

Hyper-Efficient Building Workshop: Strategies for Complying with Local Law 31 - Center for Architecture March 01, 2018 - Manhattan

In 2016, New York City passed Local Laws 31 & 32, aimed at strengthening existing sustainability requirements and introducing new measures that will make NYC-owned buildings among the most efficient in the country. Specifically, Local Law 31 requires new municipal buildings to use 50% less energy compared to code or the median energy use for buildings of that type in New York-radically more efficient than most buildings currently being built. Through these laws, most new city buildings and major retrofits must achieve LEED Gold status and cut energy use in half. To assist the professional community in preparing to meet this challenge, AIANY and Urban Green Council will offer in-depth training on the design of hyper-efficient buildings and compliance with LL31/32. The two-day workshops are limited to 25 participants and open to all architects, designers, engineers, and construction trade professionals.

Enter SOUND HOUSE, an"multidimensional object" inspired by the haunted sound worlds of British composer Daphne Gram, inventor of Oramics, a multi-strand sound-generating machine that preceded the synthesizer, sound functions as experiential road map here, carving out story amid distortions of time and space as Constance Sneed, Daphne's present day alter ego, investigates what it is to be invisible. In business since 1992, New Georges launches and sustains artists (who are women) of assertive imagination – individually, as collaborators, and as a community – and advances their exuberantly theatrical new plays.

Pushing the envelope: Dense & Pika are the most unique act in modern techno The sheer weight of their music has conquered the techno charts Pushed back to the closing set due to a delayed flight, Dense & Pika – aka Hypercolour co-founder Alex Jones and Chris Spero, previously known as Glimpse – are finally at the controls of Coded Rhythm in Manchester. Unleashing a scything open hi-hat, Alex punches the air and looks out over the black sweaty box that is Gorilla, tonight's venue, the front row lined with grinning 20-somethings. There's a parade of their productions, including the much-anticipated remix of Tiga's 'Louder Than A Bomb', but alongside this they twist and reconstitute classics from Underground Resistance's 'Transitions' to Yarbrough & Peoples 'Don't Stop The Music'. At 4am, though, it all has to stop. With Dublin and Barcelona following this weekend, it's only the start of the pair's whirlwind schedule.

Fronted by 20-year-old singer/bassist Shannon Wise and 21-year-old guitarist/producer Max Shrager, The Shacks are already well on their way to becoming one of the year's big breakouts, and their remarkable debut album, 'Haze,' solidifies their status as a band with ability to deliver on the well-deserved buzz. With a sound that's somehow both retro and modern at once, their cinematic songs play out like the soundtrack to some long lost 16mm film, beckoning you into their grainy, saturated world of analog beauty. It's as unique as it sounds, and in the short time that they've been together, The Shacks have already made an impressive mark. Their hypnotic cover of Ray Davies' "This Strange Effect" soundtracked a new iPhone commercial, one which actually stars Wise herself, and their self-titled EP earned the band dates with St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Chicano Batman, and their Big Crown Records labelmates Lee Fields & The Expressions. Critics have been quick to notice the group, too, with NPR's World Café calling their music "the early work of a force to be reckoned with" and Vice i-D raving that they "bring a fresh sensibility to classic American sounds."

Monica Passin (aka Li'l Mo) writes, sings, and plays massively eclectic, don't-fence-me-in music, trailing Gene Vincent vintage, Stax/Volt essence, unpolluted country, new/old blues, and echoes of the Brill building, street corners, and cabarets. She is a native New Yorker. "The Jackpot Is Now - wow - Best song title ever. Philosophical truism written small but signifying large...very witty and meaningful simultaneously. [Monica's] vocal on this is phenomenal and moving to me." – David Silver, writer of The Compleat Beatles

From Black Lives Matter to the White Power Presidency: Race and Class in Trump's America - Barnard College, James Room, 4th Floor Barnard Hall March 01, 2018 - New York

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is author of From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation (2016), an examination of the history and politics of Black America and the development of the social movement Black Lives Matter in response to police violence in the United States. Taylor's research examines race and public policy including American housing policies. Dr. Taylor is currently working on a manuscript titled Race for Profit: Black Housing and the Urban Crisis of the 1970s, which looks at the federal government's promotion of single-family homeownership in Black communities after the urban rebellions of the 1960s. Taylor looks at how the federal government's turn to market-based solutions in its low-income housing programs in the 1970s impacted Black neighborhoods, Black women on welfare, and emergent discourses on the urban "underclass." Taylor is interested in the role of private sector forces, typically hidden in public policy making and execution, in the "urban crisis" of the 1970s. This is the second public event in BCRW's Poverty and Housing Working Group series

Sweet & Sour Rock & Roll with a great big Hit of Country Soul. Called "the perfectly cool combo of Lucinda Williams meets Patti Smith," Emily's street-smart poetry and rugged vocal style conjure vivid images that seduce the listener to willingly visit emotional places that entice, beguile and feel all too familiar. Her small- batch brand of hook-driven tunes dig deep, weaving a patchwork quilt of sin, tragedy, romance and regret that lays at your feet, begging to be mended. "Ms Duff is the pounding heart in a 3-circle venn diagram of Lucinda, Loretta, and Nick Cave." - Doug Simmons (Former Managing Editor, Village Voice)

Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the world renowned comedy club, Laugh Factory. He later showcased at The Comedy Store and became a regular, performing nightly. After he found success on the L.A comedy circuit, Mencia was named "International Comedy Grand Champion" from Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of Star Search). This led to appearances on "In Living Color," "The Arsenio Hall Show," "Moesha" and "An Evening at the Improv." Mencia comes from a humble background, born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. His parents sent him to the United States when he was about three months old, where he was raised in the Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles, California by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens, Mencia moved back to Honduras because his family wanted him to avoid the destructive gang culture of East Los Angeles. When Mencia later returned to Los Angeles, he showed such educational prowess that he was immediately promoted to the tenth grade. Soon after, he successfully graduated from Garfield High School. Most recently, Mencia has gone back to his comedic roots, performing at a number of comedy venues – allowing him to share his newest material with a more intimate audience. His current tour, called the "C 4 Urself Tour," has been making stops all around the country, performing to eager audiences.

Oro Macht Frei (Gold Will Set You Free) tells the history of the extortion of Roman Jews during the Nazi Occupation of the city in 1943-44. The Jewish community was told that if they produced 50 kilos of gold within 36 hours, they could avoid the deportation of 200 family leaders to Germany. Despite the fulfillment of their end of the bargain, the Nazis rounded up the Jewish people three weeks later for deportation to the concentration camps. This film sheds light on one thread within the far-reaching tragedy of the Holocaust.

Rediscovery, Restoration and Renewal: the Eldridge Street Synagogue in Photographs - Museum at Eldridge Street Through March 01, 2018 - New York

The exhibition opening for Rediscovery, Restoration and Renewal: The Eldridge Street Synagogue in Photographs will take place on Thursday, September 14 from 6 to 8 pm. The exhibition will be on view through March 1, 2018. Ten years ago, the Museum completed the restoration of the Eldridge Street Synagogue. In celebration of this milestone, this photography exhibition provides a visual record of that painstaking process. These haunting photographs capture the rediscovery of the synagogue during its most precarious years. In color and stark black and white, they recall the building's undeniable poignancy and power even as it was a "rainstorm away from collapse." Images of the restoration document the synagogue's dramatic transformation and the artisans who brought the building back to life. Drawings and photographs also capture the building's 21st-century renewal and the installation of a new stained glass window designed by artist Kiki Smith and architect Deborah Gans. Rediscovery, Restoration and Renewal: The Eldridge Street Synagogue in Photographs will be on view through March 1, 2018.

Working Through Influence: A Conversation with Artist Angel Otero - The Bronx Museum of the Arts March 01, 2018 - Bronx

In 1973, literary critic Harold Bloom published The Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry. His central thesis was that poets are both hindered and encouraged in their creative process by the ambiguous relationship they necessarily maintain with precursor poets. A similarly fraught and productive relationship exists between visual artists and their own forerunners. Painter Angel Otero and critic-curator Christian Viveros-Fauné examine both the anxiety and advantages of influence in a freewheeling conversation that centers on Otero's relationship with various generations of artists as well as on the Puerto Rican painter's exhibition "Angel Otero: Elegies," currently on view at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.

Joe McGinty was the keyboardist for the Psychedelic Furs from 1987 until 1992.

He has worked with The Ramones, Ronnie Spector, Nada Surf and many others. TV and film credits include "One More Time" with Christopher Walken, "Bored To Death" and "Last Chance Harvey" Interests include pinball, roller coasters and vinyl records.

If that Dickens chap hadn't already snagged it, "A Tale of Two Cities" would make the ideal title for the John Ellis story. The gifted, versatile saxophonist/clarinetist/composer occupies an imaginary (and extremely imaginative) space directly between the celebratory, welcoming spirit of New Orleans and the edgy, frantic streets of New York City. Both as the leader of his own eclectic projects and as an in-demand sideman for a mind-boggling number and variety of artists, Ellis expresses a keen intellect and easy virtuosity while maintaining a mischievous gleam in his eye and never letting tongue stray far from cheek. That combination is best showcased in Ellis' eccentric combo Double-Wide, which recently released its third album, Charm, on Ellis' own Parade Light Records. While the title is an apt descriptor of the band's inviting, joyous vibe, its soul is even better captured by the song that gives the album its name: "Charm is Nearly Always Sinister." That dichotomy perfectly encapsulates Double-Wide's split metropolitan personality, with a chainsaw-juggling balance of bayou brass, raucous gospel, and devil-may-care modern jazz. Ellis' band of merry pranksters includes Gary Versace (organ/piano/accordion), Alan Ferber (trombone), Matt Perrine (sousaphone), and Jason Marsalis (drums). Ellis also leads his own quintet of A-list players, whose most recent album was the 2012 Criss Cross release It's You I Like. Featuring Mike Moreno (guitar), Aaron Goldberg (piano), Matt Penman (bass), and Rodney Green (drums), the album definitely leans more toward the NYC end of Ellis' playing spectrum, though its two dedicatees still show off his "serious fun" duality: the repertoire includes songs by moody singer-songwriter Elliott Smith and legendary kids' TV host Mr. Rogers.

Jackson, Mississippi native Darrian Douglas has fashioned a successful music career with jazz groups throughout New Orleans and New York City. At age 11, Darrian began studying music at the Academic and Performing Arts Center under Dr. Perry Combs and several other inspiring music educators, including Alvin Fielder, London Branch and Chad Anderson. These musicians played a huge role in his early development and would also serve as his mentors. In 2008, Darrian moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, where he took over the drum chair in Ellis Marsalis's quartet. He stated, "I love playing with Mr. Marsalis; he allowed me to grow and explore the music without consequence." Darrian continued to play with Ellis until his departure from New Orleans in December 2012. Darrian is a rising star, drummer, composer, and band leader of The Session, a group comprised of unique characters he shared the bandstand with while playing in Jason Marsalis' vibe quartet. Darrian has performed in over 30 festivals worldwide. He has also performed at renowned venues such as The Kennedy Center, Herbst Theatre, Saenger Theatre, Aladdin Theater, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Snug Harbor, Smoke Jazz Club, and Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse.

As the son of two musicians, Davis Whitfield's early years were filled with music. He began playing the guitar at age 5, and moved to Jersey City, New Jersey at 8 where he began studying the piano. While attending high school, Whitfield was accepted by the Jersey City University Visual and Performing Arts Program and served as the principal pianist in its jazz ensemble for four years. In 2008, Whitfield became the assistant director for the Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra, writing arrangements and performing weekly at the Jazz Standard in New York City. Whitfield received full scholarships to attend the Berklee Summer Jazz Workshop in 2009 and 2010. He also received a scholarship from the National Foundation for Advancement of the Arts in 2011. As a member of the Inna Dudukina Quartet, Whitfield performed in the 2013 Nancy Jazz Pulsations Festival in Nancy, France and in the Summer of 2014 he received his Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance from Berklee College Of Music on a Presidential Scholarship.

Throughout his youth, he was recognized for his skills in classical piano with certificates of honors from both the Hartford Conservatory and the Hartt School of Music. In high school, he joined the renowned Hall High School Concert Jazz Band, during which time he was recognized nationally as a two-­time Downbeat award winner for Best Composition and Outstanding Soloist and a two-­time Essentially Ellington award winner for Outstanding Soloist. By the age of 18, he had performed on stage with jazz legends Wynton Marsalis, Kurt Elling, Joe Temperley, Joe Lovano, and Phil Woods. In 2002, David packed his bags for New York City where he received a Bachelor's degree in Music and Philosophy from NYU. Since graduation he has settled in Brooklyn, earning his living performing, recording, touring, composing, and teaching music of all styles and genres.

RT returns for it's residency on first Thursdays, always with special guests. Rusty Truck is fronted by Mark Seliger. He was born in Amarillo, TX and now resides in New York City. Before Seliger's musical career began, however, he established himself as a world-renowned photographer. Today Seliger owns a studio in New York City's West Village and is currently under contract with Condé Nast Publications, shooting for Vanity Fair and GQ. Previously, he was the Chief Photographer for Rolling Stone from 1992 to 2002. It was during that period Seliger also began writing his own music. Jakob Dylan heard Seliger's material and was impressed enough to invite him to his studio to record and write. It's been quite the journey since Seliger wrote Never Going Back" with Dylan, but the hard-earned collection of songs that comprise Luck's Changing Lanes speaks for itself. Even Seliger is a little in awe of the accomplishment. Originally available as a limited release under the title Broken Promises, this debut album has been expanded and thoroughly re-imagined as Luck's Changing Lanes, giving Mark Seliger's songs and unique American imagery the presentation they deserve. The follow up album, Kicker Town.

Picture a street in working-class Baltimore some 30 years ago. Kids play in the shadows of the row houses that line the sidewalks. Their parents sit on the stoops leading up to front doors. It all seems normal at first glance. But zoom in on one of these homes — that old duplex built back when this part of town was still mainly open fields. Inside is a completely different community, where fundamentalism, hippie values and volatile, unpredictable emotions coexist and collide. Escape is difficult: the only way out is to pass through the bedrooms of people you might be trying to get away from. This is where Eliot Bronson grew up. Yeah, he often wanted to slip away from there, but the first thing he saw once he exited was the Pentecostal Church across the street where his father and grandfather had preached and where congregants spoke in tongues.

The Open Mind: Lessons from the Visual Arts with Eléna Rivera - Poets House March 01, 2018 - New York

This workshop will focus on the ways the visual arts informs poetry, not just in writing in and about visual art (architecture, painting, sculpture, photography, performance art, installation and public art), but also the ways that the visual arts can help us to re-see our writing practice. How can the visual arts expand our idea of the poem, our practice of making, and help us access inspiration and stimulate our sensibilities? In this six-week workshop we'll write to, with, and in response to these forms of art, see what they have to teach us, how the methods of art-making can enliven our poetry. Participants will be given writing prompts and exercises to stimulate their creativity to generate work for a final project of their own choosing. We'll read short selections from various artists on their art-making process, such as Agnes Martin, Teju Cole, Nathaniel Dorsky, Gabriel Orozco, Gabrielle Civil, and read poets like Frank O'Hara, William Carlos Williams, Barbara Guest, Gwendolyn Brooks, John Ashbery, Gertrude Stein, John Taggart, Cornelius Eady and Anne Carson, among others.

Book Talk: Directorate S: The C.I.A. and America's Secret Wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan, 2001-2016 - Brooklyn Historical Society March 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

From Pulitzer-winning author of the bestselling Ghost Wars comes a tale of invisible warfare. Against the backdrop of the war in Afghanistan, a shadowy conflict between the United States military and a subgroup of Pakistan's intelligence agency known as "Directorate S" threatened to further destabilize an already protracted and complex conflict. Author Steve Coll sheds light on this struggle in the shadows, and how it has fueled a seemingly endless war overseas.

German director Valeska Grisebach uses the Western as a template with which to draw out eternal human conflicts in this supremely intelligent genre update, her first feature in a decade. In remote rural Bulgaria, a group of German workers are building a water facility. Meinhard (Meinhard Neumann), the reserved newbie in this all-male company, immediately draws the ire of the boorish team leader, not least for his willingness to mingle with the wary locals. Cast with utterly convincing nonprofessional actors, Western is a gripping culture-clash drama, attuned both to old codes of masculinity and new forms of colonialism. An NYFF55 selection. A Cinema Guild release.

COMPOSER PORTRAITS Addressing themes that range from darkness and isolation to perception and discovery, Ann Cleare has an uncanny ability to translate our innermost experiences and emotions through music. International Contemporary Ensemble presents some of the young Irish composer's most striking works, including the square of yellow light that is your window, inspired by fellow Irish artist Oscar Wilde.

Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone, two true stalwarts of classy English pop, have reunited after three decades under the moniker of their former outfit, The Zombies. Their reunion has been enthusiastically embraced by the public, thanks to a hot band, some superlative new material, and a stage repertoire that draws heavily upon their much-cherished catalogue of Zombies and solo hits. In their day, the Zombies were one of the few English bands of the 1960s that enjoyed true global popularity, with two American number ones, chart records throughout the rest of the world, and a deep and lasting affection for their music. For instance, in early 1967, at a time when their career had almost ground to a halt in the UK, the band played to crowds of over 30,000 in the Philippines. And ironically, right after the band split, their final single "Time Of The Season" quickly became their biggest record – US radio plays for the latter song recently passed the four million mark. The Zombies' first two American singles, "She's Not There" and "Tell Her No", also remain two of the most-heavily spun vintage hits on American classic-rock radio.

We're celebrating the most cinematic of liquors with a series devoted to it! This time: American Psycho. Each ticket includes Patrick Bateman's order: "J&B straight, and a Corona." Why is J&B Whiskey featured in so many movies? Rumor has it that it was Truman Capote's drink of choice and that he demanded it be visible in the film adaptation of his Breakfast at Tiffany's and it took off from there. Others claim giallo directors picked it for its cosmopolitan connotations and its popularity among the Italian-American "rat-pack." Whatever the case may be, it is omnipresent in great films, and that is reason enough to show off both the liquor and the films. In New York City in 1987, a handsome, young urban professional, Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), lives a second life as a gruesome serial killer by night. The cast is filled by the detective (Willem Dafoe), the fiance (Reese Witherspoon), the mistress (Samantha Mathis), the coworker (Jared Leto), and the secretary (Chloë Sevigny). This is a biting, wry comedy examining the elements that make a man a monster. Dir. Mary Herron. 2000. 102 min. Stick around after the film! Redeem your ticket at the bar for $2 off any drink.

Fusing Celtic, jazz and Afro-Latin influences, super group The Auction Project—led by alto saxophonist, flutist, and composer David Bixler, and featuring Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Arturo O'Farrill—create a surprising, richly textured and thoroughly enjoyable sound. The Auction Project explores how a traditional fiddle phrase fits atop a breezy, post-bop groove as this sextet makes history and stakes out uncommon musical territory. In their review of the band's last album, Slink, WBGO writes, the album "stakes out uncommon musical territory, a place where Celtic reels merge with gospel and funk, as if it were the most natural thing on earth." In addition to O'Farrill and Bixler, The Auction Project features Grammy Award-winning percussionist Vince Cherico, Grammy-nominated accordionist Victor Prieto, violinist/fiddler Heather Bixler and bassist Carlo De Rosa.

Daniil Trifonov has been lauded for "the ecstatic quality he brings to his performances … that translates into something thrilling, absorbing, inspiring" (Financial Times). The excitement level will be twice as high with a rare opportunity to hear him perform with his mentor Sergei Babayan in a program of two-piano music by Rachmaninoff, the New York premiere of a piece by Mauro Lanza co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and other works.

Facebook: /IrvingPlaza Twitter: @IrvingPlaza Instagram: @IrvingPlaza Snapchat: IrvingPlazaNYC ARTIST INFO Life and death. Joy and pain. Love and loss. Dermot Kennedy has always been fascinated by extremes. On his brilliant debut EP, 'Doves & Ravens,' the young Dubliner draws inspiration from all the moments of brightness and darkness this world has to offer, crafting music that's at once soaring and intimate, stripped-back and explosive. Stuttery hip-hop and R&B-influenced percussion underpins his weathered vocals as he combines organic and electronic elements into an arresting, emotional blend that calls to mind the adventurous arrangements of Bon Iver, James Blake, and James Vincent McMorrow. Rich beyond just its production, the EP showcases Kennedy as a writer in possession of a sophistication well beyond his 25 years. He pens lyrics with a poet's eye and a rapper's precision, conjuring vivid imagery and transfixing audiences with the unique rhythm and flow of his soulful delivery. "I think reading poetry and listening to hip hop offer a lot of the same rewards," reflects Kennedy. "The good rappers are so honest, and in my opinion they deserve to be viewed as poets. Regardless of the form, though, I just feed off of anyone who's expressing themselves and sharing their feelings." Kennedy's live shows are intense and powerful experiences, something he's again quick to credit to the influence of poetry, in particular the African-American writers Black Ice and Amir Sulaiman. "Watching those guys perform serves as a reminder to give everything you have with every line," says Kennedy. "They don't have music to back them up, so they have to be convincing with every word. Convincing listeners has never been something Kennedy's struggled with. He sings with a fire in his soul and writes with raw, unfiltered honesty reflective of both his emotional and musical maturity. It's a rare combination that enables both his recordings and performances to cover such a wide and potent spectrum. Celebratory and solemn. Playful and serious. Analog and electronic. Dermot Kennedy has always been fascinated by extremes.

Despite forming less than a year ago, Wallows members Braeden Lemasters, Dylan Minnette and Cole Preston have been playing music together for nearly a decade. The connection is evident in their solid, high-energy live performances. Wallows have just wrapped up a series of sold-out shows at LA's The Roxy and Troubadour, Slim's in San Francisco, Constellation Room in Santa Ana and Mercury Lounge in New York City. Wallows are currently writing and prepping new tracks with plans to release more new music soon. Wallows sound, an amalgam 90s era alt-rock with a younger modern twist, has received critical attention from Entertainment Weekly, Refinery29 and Teen Vogue. NYLON declared the band's track "Pleaser" an "upbeat, lo-fi indie rock anthem that will have you head-banging into the weekend" and in late May Zane Lowe gave "Sun Tan" its radio debut on Beats1. "Pleaser" has amassed over 5 million collective streams and soared to #2 on Spotify's Global Viral 50 Chart. "Pleaser" has remained a permanent fixture on KROQ's Locals Only playlist, a collection of the best local music coming out of LA and OC, holding the #1 spot for 2 week straight.

Easter Island (Rapa Nui) has long been a grand mystery of archeology—how did such a large civilization fall, and does it foreshadow our own ruin? For the indigenous people who currently live there, the island's past carries a very different legacy: one of colonial abuse and inescapable remoteness. Panizza's film shows the legacy of this exploitation, as well as the daily rhythms of the small prison on the island, in a film constructed from pieces of 32 documentaries (many of which include similar voiceovers and framing, despite being shot by crews from different countries) and original footage from the present-day. Winner of Best Chilean Film at the Valdivia Film Festival. U.S. Premiere

Pedro Pablo "Pedrito" Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba, Sept 12, 1973. He began his musical career at the age of 11, performing as vocalist and percussionist with such Cuban legends as Tata Guines and Munequitos de Matanzas. He was brought to Canada in 1998, by Jane Bunnett, to tour with her group, Spirits of Havana. His decision to remain in North America to pursue his career, proved to be an auspicious one when, two years later, the annual Thelonious Monk Institute Competition showcased Afro-Latin Hand Drumming for the first time ever. Pedro entered and won first place. Since settling in New York City in 2,000, Pedrito has performed, recorded, and/or toured with Paquito D'Rivera; Brian Lynch; Steve Turre; Me'shell Ndege'Ocello; Eddie Palmieri; Bill Summers and Los Hombres Calientes; Arturo "Chico" O'Farrill; Stefon Harris; Bebo Valdes; Cassandra Wilson; Joe Lovano, and Sting, (for his rainforest benefit, with Elton John and Bruce Springsteen). Pedro was also featured in 2,000, in the documentary film on Cuban music, Calle 54. Mr. Martinez was a founding member of the highly successful, Afro-Cuban/Afro-Beat band,Yerba Buena with which he recorded two albums and toured the world opening for the Dave Matthews Band, Willie Nelson and Ray Charles. Pedrito has also lent his talents to over one hundred records, including albums by Paquito d'Rivera, Issac Delgado, Eliane Elias, Stefon Harris, Steve Turre, Eddie Palmieri, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Conrad Herwig , Edie Brickell and many others. These include six records that have been Grammy nominated and one, a collaboration between Eddie Palmieri and Brian Lynch, called "Simpatico", that was awarded a Grammy.

Karikatura makes life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. While the band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, New York City is home.

An organic synthesis of all the music heard blasting out of car windows and shops onto the streets of NYC, Karikatura lives where cumbia meets hip-hop, reggae meets klezmer and indie-rock meets afrobeat. Neither purist nor revivalist, this is music of the present, for the future.

What's Real Power for a Man--Understanding a Woman or Feeling he Owns Her? - Aesthetic Realism Foundation March 01, 2018 - New York

Speakers: Ken Kimmelman, Ernest DeFilippis, Jeffrey Carduner Men want to feel powerful—everyone does. And it’s clearer than ever that various ways men have gone after power in relation to women are terrifically hurtful, should stop immediately, should never have happened. Meanwhile, there is urgently needed knowledge about power and the human self that every person is thirsting for. It exists in Aesthetic Realism, is not had elsewhere, and is what consultants Jeffrey Carduner, Ernest DeFilippis, and Ken Kimmelman will present at this thrilling and vital seminar. They’ll illustrate—using instances from their own lives and the arts—what Aesthetic Realism alone explains: there are two kinds of power, and everyone is in a fight between them. That fight in a man, as to women, takes the form given in the seminar’s title. The speakers will describe how the good kind of power can really win—how the desire to know can not only be valued but be pulsatingly joyful and sweeping! And they’ll give examples, too, from Aesthetic Realism consultations, in which this great education is taking place!

Vista Kicks. It reads like the kind of story you'd see in an old rock rag or zine...Four lifelong friends from Northern California grow up obsessed with the sounds of AC/DC, The Beatles, Black Sabbath, The Bee Gees and Michael Jackson. Living within a block of each other since kindergarten, they began playing anywhere and everywhere with a stage by the age of 16, taking over supper clubs, parties, and backyard barbecues. After their single ?Make It Real? cracked 2 million Spotify streams, they made a collective decision to forego college and trade their small Sacramento suburb for Hollywood, forming Vista Kicks in late 2015. Living together in a cramped one-bedroom apartment, the quartet—Derek Thomas, Sam Plecker, Trevor Sutton, and Nolan Le Vine—quietly ignited a buzz throughout L.A. and beyond with two full U.S. national tours under their belts and recording with Tommy Lee behind the board.Back in L.A., they'd sell out local shows and host intimate (and raging) booze-soaked ?Vista Kick Backs? in the studio where they resided for four months. Within a year, the band's independent 2016 Chasing Waves EP and additional singles generated over 5 million cumulative Spotify streams and 3.2 million YouTube views. However, everything set the stage for the release of their 2017 full-length, Booty Shakers Ball—self-produced by the musicians themselves and engineered by their guitar player and vocalist Sam Plecker.Best described as a smoked-out collaboration between James Brown and Jimmy Page, it bridges eras. Kasador. Kasador (Will Hunter, Cam Wyatt, Boris Baker, Nick Babcock, Angus Fay) are a 5-piece indie rock band from Kingston Ontario. Born out of a university town, Kasador brings the energy of a party to the stage and into the audience. This energetic stage show has captured the attention of fans and promoters alike, and has placed Kasador on bills with such Canadian greats as Walk Off The Earth, Lights, Arkells, July Talk, Wintersleep, U.S.S, and Current Swell. On September 13th 2016, Kasador released their highly anticipated self-titled debut EP. Recorded at The Bathouse located just outside of Kingston with Engineer and Co-Producer Nyles Spencer (Half Moon Run, The Tragically Hip, Arkells, The Trews), mixed by Juno award winning engineer Dan Brodbeck, and mastered by Noah Mitz (Arkells, The Constantines, Broken Social Scene). The EP has had a strong reception, with radio play from The Edge (Toronto), CBC Radio 1 and The Drive (Kingston) with their songs 'Neighbourhood' and 'Talk About It'.

The Presidents' Kitchen Cabinet: The Story of the African Americans Who Have Fed Our First Families - Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden March 01, 2018 - New York

James Beard Award-winning author Adrian Miller tells the stories of the African Americans who worked in the presidential food service as chefs, personal cooks, butlers, stewards and servers for First Families since George and Martha Washington. From Samuel Fraunces's "onions done in the Brazilian way" prepared for George Washington, to Zephyr Wright's popovers, beloved by LBJ, Miller highlights African Americans' contributions to our shared American foodways, and how food related work first became professionalized, empowering newly freed African American communities. A sample tasting of dishes including Samuel Fraunces's "Onions," James Hemings's Baked Macaroni and Cheese from 1802, Washington's favorite Hoe Cakes, and Zephyr Wrights popovers will be served at the reception preceding the talk. Mr. Miller is also the author of "Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time."

In 2018, The Creative Independent and National Sawdust will work together to present new works from independent musicians, dancers, and other types of working artists. The series will focus on process, collaboration, and the time and space needed to complete a creative project. This edition of TCI x National Sawdust features "Tongue Versions," a performance by Los Angeles based musician and composer Anenon featuring New York based artist Bryce Hackford. Based on his latest LP, "Tongue," this live iteration will feature improvised music and sound alongside the original material of the album. Brian Allen Simon recorded "Tongue," his fourth LP as Anenon, in the Italian countryside of Tuscany during a month-long residency program in April of 2017. Composed against the serene and quiet surroundings of Tuscany, the music of Tongue materializes through abstract articulations of love, loss, fear, addiction, confidence, longing, hope, and sadness. While deceivingly minimal on the surface, layers reveal themselves with each new listen, exposing a self contained universe of sound. Drawing on the palettes of the piano's keys, strings, and hammers as well as the soprano saxophone's winds and human breath pushed through, the record is embellished with synthesizer and site specific field recordings. It touches on aspects of downtown minimalism, ambient, classic era electronic, and free jazz. Purposefully, the album never settles comfortably into any one of these genres, remaining a work of deep personal affect by Simon. Live, Tongue Versions uses the material recorded in Italy as well as recent material recorded at home in Los Angeles as a jumping off point for excursions into improvised music and sound. For this performance, Brian Allen Simon and collaborator Bryce Hackford will utilize the instrumentation and palettes of Tongue to blanket the audience with a dynamic, searching, and timelessly ephemeral sound.

A live taping of 'I Seem Fun; The Diary of Jen Kirkman Podcast' - The Bell House March 02, 2018 - Gowanus

It's a solo podcast - where Jen Kirkman talks off the top of her head about what's going on in the world and her life that week. You know, like a diary. "What makes I Seem Fun; The Diary of Jen Kirkman Podcast funny is Kirkman's inherent knack for cultivating conflict even talking into a microphone in a room by herself. Whether she's dissecting a negative iTunes review from an angry Christian or seriously considering a class action suit against Robin Thicke for being gross, Kirkman is eternally embattled but she tempers her cynicism with sweetness and, more often than not, she's right.

A Case for Magic, A Comedy Magic Show at the Frigid Fringe Festival - The Kraine Theater Through March 02, 2018 - New York

Award winning magician, Robert Malissa, puts the art of the trick on trial. He will lie, cheat, and smile as he presents sleight of hand, mentalism, and sneaky swindles, all while making a case of the craft of deception. A fair and balanced examination of the art, for lovers of magic and their ambivalent friends. Native Philadelphian, Robert Malissa, was setting up for his street show a few years back when a passerby said, "Hey a magician, the lowest form of entertainment!" That statement was the inspiration for his show, "A Case for Magic", at the upcoming NYC Frigid Fringe Festival. The show takes direct aim at the view of magic as a tacky art, or that tricks are only for kids. Sometimes comic, sometimes poetic, Malissa's original presentations of sleight of hand, mentalism, and general sneaky stuff, support his point of view. It has been said, "There are many rooms in the house of magic." Acting as your congenial tour guide, Malissa shows you his favorite places. Rob Malissa started magic at age 12 and has performed for many years. His early start was the birthday circuit, then street magic in Philadelphia, and Europe after college. Along the way, he garnered a first place award from the Philadelphia Houdini Club and two more awards from the Philadelphia Society of American Magicians. After a successful run at the 2017 Philadelphia Fringe Festival, it is now time to bring his show to NYC. Malissa will be performing six shows at the NYC 2018 Frigid Fringe Festival. Kraine Theater, 85 East 4th Street, Between 2nd & 3rd Aves. (Bowery), First Floor, (no wheelchair access), (212) 777-6088. Dates and Times: Wed. 2/14 8:50, Thurs 2/15 7:10, Mon 2/19 5:30, Tue 2/20 10:30, Wed 2/28 8:50, Fri. 3/2 6:50.

The phenomenal Boston song machine TWISTED PINE delivers a cabinet of inventions with its self-titled summer of '17 debut release [July 14, 2017] from Signature Sounds Recordings. The all-original album showcases a new force in Americana: four versatile players and singers writing and improvising across forms in bluegrass, folk, funk, jam, and vintage radio pop. With festively unpredictable live shows, Twisted Pine follows Americana masters Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers on a genre-bending, limitless trajectory. The influences on the ensemble are vast — as all four have studied music from childhood, and traveled widely — but the most obvious are these: Dan Bui (mandolin, vocals) is a devotee of virtuoso picking and experimental bluegrass and jazz. Kathleen Parks (fiddle/lead vocals) was raised in a household of Celtic music and jazz, which set deep roots for her insane fiddling, velvet film-noir vocals, and a roving interest in pop song forms. Chris Sartori (bass, vocals), frequently seen around Boston on electric bass in funk, jazz, and R&B settings, is arbiter of the deep pocket and the improvisational grooves. Rachel Sumner (guitar/lead vocals) is a student of the song: an omnibus of British ballads, obscure folk tunes, avant garde orchestral work, and radio pop. Her vocals have the crystalline clarity of Appalachian field recordings.

No matter what is being supplied, a hustler is only as good as his word. With Atlanta serving up some of the hottest product in the rap game, native son Young Jeezy stands as one of the most exciting merchants of cool to emerge in years. Thanks to underground testimonials like "Air Forces" and "Chuuch," Jeezy's street swagger and authentic style has quickly made believers out of some the biggest players in the game, from Fabolous to P. Diddy. In his native Atlanta, and throughout the south, Young Jeezy has created nothing short of a movement. Like many hustlers on the mic, rapping wasn't in Jeezy's original game plan. As CEO of Corporate Thug Entertainment, Jeezy was content to stack his paper from the background. "Basically, I'm a real nigga so I can relate more to a lot of cats," Jeezy says of his appeal. " I don't just do music for the clubs, I do music for the struggle. I do music for everyday niggas, the kids who ain't got no sense of direction. I'm trying to restore some of the morals back into the game, as far as the street." What sets Young Jeezy's music apart is his ability to bring color and flash to a story that has been told so many times before. He's a true digital age artist who doesn't need 16 bars to develop a picture in your head. When he snaps off a verse the image is simple enough for everyone to feel it instantly.

Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. Melvin is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become "Jam Band Music". From blues to funk to rock to jazz, Melvin Seals serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up. Melvin and JGB bring an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations of Zach Nugent's guitar and vocals, John Paul McLean's savory bass, Pete Lavezzoli's hearty drums and, of course, a heapin' helpin' of the wizard's magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. Along with Shirley Starks and Cheryl Rucker on back-up vocals, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience dancing and smiling (and some staring in amazement) for hours. Adding his rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder Jerry nicknamed him "Master of the Universe". Melvin continues to treat music lovers to his unique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself! JGB Band is: Melvin Seals - Hammond B3 and Leslies, Roland RD700 Keyboard, vocals Dave Hebert - Guitar, lead vocals John Paul McLean - Bass Pete Lavezzoli - Drums Shirley Starks and Cheryl Rucker - backing vocals

In writing about Akira Kurosawa's scruffy samurai classic starring the iconic Toshiro Mifune, preeminent Japanese film historian Donald Richie matter-of-factly states, "Yojimbo is the best-filmed of any of Kurosawa's pictures." A masterclass in widescreen framing and composition, the black-and-white cinematography by Kazuo Miyagawa (and second unit cameraman Takao Saito) maximizes the film's minimal set, mostly consisting of a small town's dusty main road, with ingenious use of deep focus and wide angle lenses. Hugely influential in style and subject, Yojimbo went on to inspire a number of reworkings, including Sergio Leone's career-catapulting western A Fistful of Dollars.

Joanne Shaw Taylor has established herself as the UK's number one star of the blues-rock world. The girl with the big voice from the Black Country has toured extensively around the world, released critically acclaimed albums and gained a global fan base as well as having the honor of playing alongside some of her musical idols. Joanne's debut album White Sugar first opened the door and her career has since gone stratospheric, with her breaking the notoriously hard-to-crack US market. She beat the stereotypes of her age and gender, gaining acclaim from critics and peers alike. Subsequent albums; Diamonds in the Dirt, Almost Always Never and Songs From The Road followed and Joanne's fan base rose globally. In 2014 Joanne reunited with her White Sugar album producer, Jim Gaines, and recorded her new studio album in Memphis. That album entitled The Dirty Truth was a return to Joanne's original sound that mixes rock riffs with blues influences. The album was released in the UK in September 2014 on Joanne's own independent boutique label, Axehouse Records to critical acclaim across the world and has already become her biggest selling album to date. Joanne is a bona fide star with famous fans across the guitar world including Joe Bonamassa (who described her as a Superstar in waiting), Tedeschi Trucks, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Wilko Johnson, Glenn Hughes and John Mayall to name a few.

Cocktails & Conversation: Tod Williams and Billie Tsien - Center for Architecture March 02, 2018 - Manhattan

Friday, March 2nd, ISSUE presents an evening of overlapping improvisations between computer music pioneer Carl Stone, composer and performer Ned Rothenberg, and Tokyo-based vocalist and cross-media artist Ami Yamasaki. While Stone and Rothenberg have performed together previously in Japan over their 35 year-long friendship, this will be their debut collaborative performance in New York. Further, the evening is a first meeting between Stone, Rothenberg, and Yamasaki, an encounter with the inevitable alchemy of skilled improvisors having an initial encounter. An electronics prophet with 40 years of pioneering work with the possibilities of digital synthesizers, samplers and effects, Carl Stone's practice predicts the variable techniques of contemporary computer music, serving as an uncanny precursor for the majority of today's computer-driven methods. Before many saw the flexibility of the computer as an instrument, Stone developed his own idiosyncratic take on sonic bricolage using palettes of eastern-tuned scales, processed vocals, and pop samples to conjure majorly distinct, angular, intriguing arrangements. Within this vocabulary, Stone's adaptability as an improviser and rigor as a composer is singular, with the LA Times describing him as "the one who has always performed in nightclubs as well as concert halls, for spiky-haired punks as well as the PhD-and-ponytail set. He composes for the computer, not the orchestra; he plays the microprocessor the way Maurizio Pollini plays a Baldwin." With parallel focus, Ned Rothenberg's engagement with wind instruments as melodic, rhythmic and harmonic engines is celebrated particularly with regard to his circular-breathing techniques and experiments with overtone manipulation and polyphony. He shares the restless eclecticism of colleagues like John Zorn and Anthony Braxton, with a particular interest in the more painterly shades of contemporary Japanese classical music. As writer Glen Hirshberg describes, "what renders Rothenberg more approachable and, in the end, more significant than many of his peers is the serenity at the heart of his fiercest playing." Ami Yamaskai's vocal technique is at-once concrete and direct, but conveyed with a lyricism that runs as a consistent thread across her creative work -- spanning installation, performance, visual art, film, and writing. A recent 2017 Asian Cultural Council grantee, Yamasaki's varied practices and installations often conceptualize the voice as physical phenomenon that exists externally from our bodies -- existing not only as a vibration that shakes the air, but an entity with its own embodiment once uttered.

Enter SOUND HOUSE, an"multidimensional object" inspired by the haunted sound worlds of British composer Daphne Gram, inventor of Oramics, a multi-strand sound-generating machine that preceded the synthesizer, sound functions as experiential road map here, carving out story amid distortions of time and space as Constance Sneed, Daphne's present day alter ego, investigates what it is to be invisible. In business since 1992, New Georges launches and sustains artists (who are women) of assertive imagination – individually, as collaborators, and as a community – and advances their exuberantly theatrical new plays.

The world's most popular opera returns in Franco Zeffirelli's classic production, with a series of exciting casts.

They've Distorted Disney, Perverted Pride and made a mockery of just about every holiday imaginable, now Twizted Sisterz, a collective of some of New York's most in-demand drag queens, set their sights on the comic book world with SICKENING SUPERHEROES.

With SICKENING SUPERHEROES, The Dragtastic Four -- demented drag stars Holly Dae, Brenda Dharling, Bootsie LeFaris and Brita Filter -- present a rollicking night of comic book characters as you have never seen them before. This late night pop culture spectacular mashes and mangles together the sassiest supergirls and the most voracious villiainesses into a Las Vegas-style revue of epic proportions. Marvel at these Ex-Men and Wonder (if they're) Women as they use their super-drag powers to battle it out in the fight for T, Justice, and The American Gays.

It's been nearly four years since the last Mammoth Grinder full-length, Extinction of Humanity, was released via Relapse Records (CD) and Cyclopean Records (vinyl). That album showcased the band's direction into a distinctly death metal permutation, full of aggression and punk rawness, and they continued in this spirit on 2011's split LP with fellow Austin, Texas-based group Hatred Surge. Now, after a long wait and much anticipation, Mammoth Grinder has found a home on 20 Buck Spin for the release of their wildly destructive third full-length Underworlds. The album marks a peak at which Mammoth Grinder have sharpened and perfected their sound into a seething grind / death / thrash maelstrom of intense degree. Unrelenting in concentrated raw precision and focused power, Underworlds careens violently through ten tracks with effortless versatility and the fixated songcraft expected of a band on their third record. Tracks like "Wraparound Eyes" with its Unleashed-style midsection, or the short sharp shock of "Paragon Pusher," illustrate Mammoth Grinder's mastery over multiple variations of metal to assemble their own sound. Underworlds is adorned with artwork by the legendary Joe Petagno, whose work has graced albums from artists like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin to Motörhead and Marduk.

A series of performances organized by David Grubbs In much the same way that Anthony McCall's solid light works when exhibited together are experienced individually and as a group, this series of musical performances scheduled to take place within the exhibition imagines four performers—four soloists—experienced individually or as an ensemble. For each performance, four musicians are dispersed equidistantly throughout Pioneer Works' 130-foot main hall, each situated adjacent to a solid light piece. The musicians play at a modest volume—either acoustically or with self-contained amplification—such that visitors are compelled to explore the space in order to realize different musical combinations through a succession of aural vantage points. There is no single location from which to garner an all-over sound perspective; visitors must actively bring smaller sounds into focus by approaching them within Pioneer Works' main hall. Each of the four musicians on a given performance can be understood alternately as a soloist paired with a solid light work or as part of an ensemble. The selection of musicians, all of whom have extensive experience as improvisers, is motivated by the idea of the first-time encounter—none of the collections of performers will have previously performed in a given configuration. Each of these performances begins with Anthony McCall's solid light works already running, and McCall's pieces continue after the last concertgoer has left. In this way it is established that Four Simultaneous Soloists—not an inaccurate way to describe the four vertical works on display in the main hall—is a performance project in which Anthony McCall's works function as preexisting entities whose mode of operation imprints itself upon the musicians.

British choreographer and director Wayne McGregor brings his hip contemporary dance company back to New York with Autobiography, a new piece with stunning set design and projections by artist Ben Cullen Williams, an electronic score by critically-acclaimed producer Jlin, lighting by award-winning lighting designer Lucy Carter, costumes by artist and designer Aitor Throup, and dramaturgy by writer Uzma Hameed. In Autobiography, McGregor not only meditates on notions of selfhood, but also creates movement informed by the sequence of his own genome.

Rhapsody is an acoustic, narrative song cycle which incorporates written music, improvisation, and vocals with lyrics to create an evening length performance. Rhapsody twists and turns, landing on song 'events' but never ending there, instead, spinning off in other directions, only to land again on a vocal moment, sung by Jen Shyu. Using acoustic harp (Zeena Parkins), piano (John Medeski), acoustic guitars (Nels Cline), alto saxophone (Fabian Rucker) and drums, autoharp, harmonica and percussion (Bobby Previte) the piece places the listener 'in transit' — traveling to an unknown place that subtly changes over the course of time, until in the end, they arrive at a surprise destination. Rhapsody is a 60 minute continuous song cycle commissioned by the 2015 Greenfield Prize in Music at the Hermitage Artist Retreat. The recording will be released in March 2018 on RareNoise records. Bobby Previte is a composer and performer whose work explores the nexus between notated and improvised music. One of the seminal figures of the 1980s New York Downtown scene, Previte is the recipient of the 2015 Greenfield Prize for music and was a Guggenheim Foundation Fellow in 2012. Leading a plethora of diverse ensembles from the drums, he has collaborated with many of the leading lights in and beyond the world of music.

The story covers a few months in the life of a colonel whose pension, delayed 15 years by an overwhelming bureaucracy, becomes an obsession. Reduced to penury despite his veteran status, the protagonist and his wife live in anticipation of his pay. But every Friday the mail launch, the only apparent contact with the outside world, comes and goes with the same declaration from the postmaster, "Nothing for the colonel. No one writes to the colonel."

Four Simultaneous Soloists: A series of performances organized by David Grubbs - Pioneer Works March 02, 2018 - Brooklyn

In much the same way that Anthony McCall's solid light works when exhibited together are experienced individually and as a group, this series of musical performances scheduled to take place within the exhibition imagines four performers—four soloists—experienced individually or as an ensemble.

Statik Selektah & Friends with Live Band featuring Special Guests - Blue Note Jazz Club March 02, 2018 - New York

"With an unblemished resume that includes Eminem, Nas, Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$, Selektah is quickly becoming hip-hop's secret weapon." - BILLBOARD Establishing his own spot amongst the ranks of East Coast hip-hop's seminal figures, DJ/producer Statik Selektah utilized his turntabling skills and ingenuity in PR and promotions to break some of the region's most promising artists, bearing his own influence on the national mixtape circuit. Born January 23, 1982 in Lawrence, MA, Patrick Baril was exposed to production equipment at a very early age, tinkering with his parents' eight-track machine, cassette recorders, and turntable. By middle school, he was already DJing school functions, but he was inspired to be a true wheels-of-steel artiste after hearing DJ Premier scratch and mix records on Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 radio show. Soon after, at 14 years old, he purchased his first turntables and mixer. Calling himself DJ Statik (the "Selektah" surname came later), he started to work clubs and private parties up and down the New England coast.

His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes - but is not limited to - adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician's musician, Bromberg's mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. In producing John Hartford's hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass.

Add in a period of self-imposed exile from his passion (1980-2002), during which he became a renowned violin expert, and Wilmington, Delaware's cultural ambassador; top that off with a triumphant return to music-making, and you have an amazing tale leading back to one place: the Blues.

Now, with The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing But the Blues, his first release for Red House Records, Bromberg and multi-Grammy-winning producer/accompanist Larry Campbell (Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Simon) focus on the music David discovered in high school, when, circa late 50s, he was introduced to a friend's dad's collection of Blues 78s. He'd only just taken up guitar as a means to pass the time while in bed with the measles.

"I loved those 78s so much," says David, "I taped them on a portable reel-to-reel, so I could listen at home and learn."

That love is evident in The Blues, the Whole Blues and Nothing But the Blues. The album is both Blues primer and an opportunity to witness a master embracing this distinctly American music with passion and grace.

With over 40 albums and countless hit music over his 40 year musical career, Thanos Mikroutsikos became one from the main and critically acclaimed Greek composers. Introducing poetry as a source of inspiration and political protest, Thanos Mikroutiskos has composed a lot of songs based on poems by Greek & foreign poets, such as Euripides, Aristophanes, Constantine P. Cavafy, Giorgos Seferis, Yannis Ritsos, Odysseas Elytis and Nikos Kavvadias as well as Bertolt Brecht, Nazim Hikmet, Wolf Biermann and Maurice Maeterlinck. He has also written operas, symphonic music, chamber and music for the theatre and cinema. One of his most popular works was the album "Stauros Tou Notou" (Southern Cross), where he set to music of poems by Nikos Kavvadias. This album became one of biggest-selling albums in Greek music and his best-known work. He was appointed Minister of Culture in 1994 to 1996.

David Archuleta – VIP EXPERIENCE - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts March 02, 2018 - Bay Shore

Mitsuko Uchida—one of the great Schubert interpreters—reveals the sweet, unforced lyricism, depth of emotion, and technical brilliance of the master's piano sonatas as she continues a two-season exploration of these works. Sudden harmonic shifts make the B-Major Sonata one of Schubert's most daring early works in the form. The set of variations in the A-Minor Sonata have a fluid, songlike quality, while the D-Major Sonata is a technically brilliant work with a lighthearted finale.

Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the world renowned comedy club, Laugh Factory. He later showcased at The Comedy Store and became a regular, performing nightly. After he found success on the L.A comedy circuit, Mencia was named "International Comedy Grand Champion" from Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of Star Search). This led to appearances on "In Living Color," "The Arsenio Hall Show," "Moesha" and "An Evening at the Improv." Mencia comes from a humble background, born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. His parents sent him to the United States when he was about three months old, where he was raised in the Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles, California by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens, Mencia moved back to Honduras because his family wanted him to avoid the destructive gang culture of East Los Angeles. When Mencia later returned to Los Angeles, he showed such educational prowess that he was immediately promoted to the tenth grade. Soon after, he successfully graduated from Garfield High School. Most recently, Mencia has gone back to his comedic roots, performing at a number of comedy venues – allowing him to share his newest material with a more intimate audience. His current tour, called the "C 4 Urself Tour," has been making stops all around the country, performing to eager audiences.

Richard Buckner's career began with Bloomed (1994), a lyrically-dense suite of songs recorded in Lubbock, Texas (produced by Lloyd Maines) and heavily influenced by that state's tradition of whiskey-soaked poet/troubadors. (Since 1999, the album has been kept in print (with additional bonus tracks) by Rykodisc offshoot Slow River Records at Buckner's request, the artwork on the back cover was edited to remove his then-girlfriend from the picture.) In January 1996, while living in San Francisco, he recorded an album's worth of acoustic songs, all of which reappeared in more fully realized forms on his second and third albums. This CD was self- produced and self-released, and was sold exclusively at his early shows. Later that year, he signed with MCA Records, for whom he recorded two albums, both produced by J.D. Foster. Devotion + Doubt was released in 1997, displaying a more adventurous, almost avant-garde approach to songwriting and arranging, and featuring backing from members of the band Giant Sand, as well as Maines and Marc Ribot, among others. Its follow-up, 1998's Since, continues in this style, with an even greater emphasis on detailed production, this time featuring contributions from John McEntire, Dave Schramm, David Grubbs, Syd Straw, and others. Although these albums garnered considerable critical approval for Buckner, they did not perform well enough for his label, and he was released from his contract with MCA (whom he then nicknamed 'Musical Career Assassins') shortly thereafter. Since then, he has returned to recording for smaller labels, to continued critical acclaim and cult status. His 2000 album The Hill - his first for Chicago-based indie label Overcoat Recordings - features poems from Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology (1915), which Buckner set to music. The album plays as a single track, nearly thirty-five minutes long. He returned in 2002, first with the "teaser" EP Impasse-ette, then a full-length entitled Impasse one month later. In early 2003, his self-released, self-titled album was reissued by Overcoat, and was his final release for the label. In 2004, an edited version of Richard Buckner's song "Ariel Ramirez", from the album Since (1998) was featured in one of the television ads for Volkswagen's Touareg. The song, in its original form, was featured prominently in the 2008 horror film, The Strangers. He is currently aligned with the North Carolina-based indie label Merge Records, who released 2004's Dents and Shells and 2006's Meadow. Between the two, he released an album with Jon Langford called Sir Dark Invader vs. The Fanglord (2005, originally recorded in Sally Timms's house in 2002) on Buried Treasure Records. Merge Records released Buckner's album Our Blood on August 2, 2011.[5] The album was licensed in Europe and Oceania to Decor records.[6 Buckner latest album, Surrounded, was released in 2013 by Merge Records.[7]

A mosaic of emotive piano keys, physical percussion, buzzing analog synths, and expansive vocals, Rhye find humanity in musicality. Driven by this approach, the group quietly transformed into a phenomenon with the arrival of their 2013 debut, Woman. The record garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, Spin, and Pitchfork who dubbed it "Best New Album." "Open" would concurrently accumulate over 42.9 million Spotify streams, while "The Fall" surpassed 23.7 million. Along the way, they sold out theaters around the globe between standout festival sets at Coachella, Pitchfork, and a highlight concert in Denmark accompanied by a 49-piece all-girls choir. As the band began writing in 2016, this expansive live show indelibly impacted their second full-length album in 2017. The first single "Please" siphons a gorgeous vocal plea through a kaleidoscope of sparse percussion and piano that's simultaneously stirring, stark, and sensual. It's a new musical experience. It's Rhye.

Six years in the making, Gridline continues to captivate audiences with their high-octane blend of funk, soul, and rock and roll. Their debut album, Soul Brew, is a culminating snapshot of a live band in motion. The eight original songs on the record developed over years of performing late night sets as the house band of NYC's historic club, The Bitter End. The album also features notable contributions from established members of the extended Gridline family, including vocalist Corey Glover (Living Colour), Kim Miller (The Skatalites), Joel Thome (Frank Zappa), Mike Soprano (Streetlight Manifesto), and the Scorchio Quartet (David Bowie). ? Founded in New York in 2012, kindred spirits Dan Kottmann (guitars, lead vocals) and Andrew Yanchyshyn (bass, vocals) found common ground on their local college music scene at SUNY Purchase. Together, they formed a band and caught attention through organizing and headlining DIY psychedelic sets at campus venues that they converted for live performances. After years of East Coast touring and lineup changes, the group has expanded to include Syracuse musician Neal Spitzer (saxophones, EWI), a tour-de-force on the saxophone and in the writing studio, Zach Schepis (guitars vocals), the missing lyrical link that now bonds them together, and recently, the addition of powerhouse Queens-based drummer Dorsey "Sky" Parker.

Come and gather around for an evening of feminism, activism, and art!

When the Greyboy Allstars first formed, two decades ago next year, they were nothing short of groundbreaking. They have influenced an entire generation of bands playing improvisational music in a funk format. Meanwhile, they have outlasted most of their contemporaries, because they have continued to enjoy working together and have honed the essence of their collaboration – also refining their chops while busy with their highly successful individual musical endeavors – without ever chasing trends. Throughout, they have continued to operate completely independently, slightly under the radar, with no major label support or radio airplay, while attracting thousands to legendary shows in cities across the country. On Inland Emperor, the Greyboy Allstars' fourth studio album to date, one hears the benefits that accrue when a group of exceptional players with a wide variety of tastes and musical experiences continue to collaborate for 20 years. The cornerstones of The Greyboy Allstars sound remain the same: funk, soul and jazz; or, looked at another way, rhythm and spontaneity. Without attempting to recreate them, the band has drawn upon elements of many genres: old soundtracks, psychedelic garage rock, '80s dance music, '70s FM soft rock and Tropicalia, to name a few. As a result, Inland Emperor has the vibe of a mixtape whose tracks are united by an emphasis upon rhythm. The Greyboy Allstars came together in 1994, when the individual members were asked to perform at a record release party for the landmark acid jazz and club staple "Freestylin," by San Diego's DJ Greyboy, who was famous for spinning `70s soul and funk. The guys so enjoyed playing together that they decided to continue on as a band. Right out of the box, The Greyboy Allstars starting playing weekly at San Diego's now defunct Green Circle, weekends at San Francisco's Elbo Room and various clubs throughout Europe. By playing danceable boogaloo music within the soul jazz genre, they became a national and international phenomenon. The lineup of the band remains nearly the same as it did on their breakthrough, West Coast Boogaloo: Denson on horns and vocals, Robert Walter on keyboards, Elgin Park (aka Michael Andrews) on guitars and vocals, and Chris Stillwell on bass. Original drummer Zak Najor has passed the baton on to Aaron Redfield, an old friend of the band and frequent collaborator. While DJ Greyboy is no longer a member of the band, he remains a central figure in their artistic output, having introduced the band to many of the records that inspire their sound, produced their first album and appeared on 2007's What Happened to Television? At this point, the band's members are as well known for their non-Allstars projects as for their work with the band. The individual members have gone to score film and television shows, work with platinum artists and bands both on the road and in the studio, and head their own highly regarded solo projects. Even for these now well-seasoned musicians, the catalytic force that takes hold when they collaborate with each other seems to pleasantly surprise them. For Inland Emperor, they worked out the arrangements during the recording, which took place live over just a few sessions at Elgin Park's studio in Glendale, CA. Denson says of this accelerated pace of creation, "We do in one week would take me two months to do in any other situation." Amazingly, the 12 tracks comprising the album, mostly written by groupings of the band's members, are seamless performances, and sound as if they'd been rehearsed and road-tested for months. Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Mickey Petralia (Beck, Peaches, Eels, Flight of the Conchords) mixed the tracks, expertly capturing the energy and collaborative joy inherent in the recording. Inland Emperor follows the critically acclaimed What Happened to Television?, which prompted The Los Angeles Times to write, "The [music of] this talented collective feels so cozy and organic you never want to leave its inviting groove." This spring and summer, audiences across the country will have opportunities to experience the Greyboy Allstars' music in its ideal format: live. Given the likelihood that the chance won't come again soon, these are shows not to miss.

Beautiful debut...a story of love and sacrifice...Delivers the haunted resilience of someone who has found self-acceptance." - London in Stereo.

B-Sides is Theo Bleckmann's new project in which he gathers music from his many myriad collaborations from over the years, including writing lyrics to instrumental pieces. These are songs that have perhaps been recorded and performed a handful of times but have sadly fallen out of sight. Much of this music has had no home until now. "a vocalist of inventive instinct and assiduous musicality" - Nate Chinen, NY Times GRAMMY® nominated jazz singer and new music composer Theo Bleckmann's diverse recorded work includes albums of Las Vegas standards, Weimar art songs, and popular "bar songs" (all with pianist Fumio Yasuda); a recording of newly-arranged songs by Charles Ives (with jazz/rock collective Kneebody); and his acclaimed "Hello Earth - the Music of Kate Bush." Bleckmann has most recently appeared as a special guest on recordings by Ambrose Akinmusire for Blue Note Records and Julia Hülsmann's trio for ECM Records. In January 2017, ECM will release Bleckmann's recording with his new Elegy Quintet, produced by legendary label head and founder, Manfred Eicher. Bleckmann has collaborated with musicians, artists, actors and composers, including Ambrose Akinmusire, Laurie Anderson, Uri Caine, Philip Glass, Ann Hamilton, John Hollenbeck, Sheila Jordan, Phil Kline, David Lang, Kirk Nurock, Frances MacDormand, Ben Monder, Michael Tilson Thomas, Kenny Wheeler, John Zorn, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, and, most prominently, Meredith Monk, with whom Bleckmann worked as a core ensemble member for over fifteen years.? He has been interviewed by Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air and appeared on the David Letterman show with Laurie Anderson. In 2015, Bleckmann premiered a new work for the American Composers Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, and in 2016 he brings new work to the New York Philharmonic Biennial and the LA Philharmonic. Bleckmann has consistently appeared in the top-five spots in the DownBeat Critics' Polls for Best Male Vocalist, and top- ten spots in their Readers' Polls, and his work on Phil Kline's "Out Cold" helped place that production on WQXR's Operavore "Best Opera of 2012". In 2010, Bleckmann received the prestigious JAZZ ECHO award from the Deutsche Phono-Akademie in his native Germany.

Excision, Liquid Stranger, Midnight Tyrannosaurus, Downlink, Protohype, Dion Timmer, Monxx, Yakz - Terminal 5 March 02, 2018 - New York

The name itself presents a terrifying image- a mangled, forced extraction, quite literally "removal by cutting". It should come as no surprise that the sounds behind this name are just as filthy, brutal, and unforgiving as the namesake suggests. Excision shows are like no other- a virtual apocalypse of twisting and morphing sounds turn massive crowds into a frenzy, as virtual walls of bass are relentlessly impaled time and time again upon their fragile bodies and ears. Your ears will ring and your eyes will roll into the back of your head as you are suspended in what can only be called a true sensory overload. Bass will rain down from above for hours as Excision's skills as a DJ and producer shine like an unholy light from the underworld. The true champion of bass music, Excision hails from Kelowna, British Columbia. The founder of the ROTTUN label, a bass music conglomerate that has shaped the sound of modern Bass music, Excision has created a vast roster of allies that has only bolstered his spot as a warrior of bass music. Armed with a library of destruction and filth, Excision has time and time again tested the limits of electronic music with vastly different sets that encompass a full range of genres. The things you see and hear during the precious time you are engaged by Excision's sounds will eclipse your mind for a lifetime, as you are constantly enlightened by the true fervor and energy that only an Excision set can provide.

Extraordinary Kunqu (Chinese opera) artist Qian Yi shares a work-in-progress exploration of a new work she is creating around Buddhist philosophy. She plays two roles — that of a Buddhist nun and a mischievous student, who find their practice challenged as they seek to find a spiritual essence. Qian Yi believes her art form is a powerful medium for connecting past to future, and in this way, a part of contemporary expression. Her work is accompanied by flute and percussion and is followed by an artist Q&A.

Lucy Dacus is done thinking small. Two years after her 2016 debut, No Burden, won her unanimous acclaim as one of rock's most promising new voices, Dacus returns on March 2 with Historian, a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent. It finds her unafraid to take on the big questions — the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It's a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos. "This is the album I needed to make," says Dacus, who views Historian as her definitive statement as a songwriter and musician. "Everything after this is a bonus." She emphasizes that she does not take her newfound platform as a touring musician for granted. "I have this job where I get to talk to people I don't know every night," she remembers thinking on the long van rides across America to support No Burden. Realizing that she would have a dramatically expanded audience for her second album, she felt an urgent call to make something worthwhile: "The next record should be the thing that's most important to say." The past year, with its electoral disasters and other assorted heartbreaks, has been a rough one for many of us, Dacus included. She found solace in crafting a thoughtful narrative arc for Historian, writing a concept album about cautious optimism in the face of adversity, with thematic links between songs that reveal themselves on repeat listens. "It starts out dark and ends hopeful, but it gets darker in between; it goes to the deepest, darkest, place and then breaks," she explains. "What I'm trying to say throughout the album is that hope survives, even in the face of the worst stuff."

No matter what is being supplied, a hustler is only as good as his word. With Atlanta serving up some of the hottest product in the rap game, native son Young Jeezy stands as one of the most exciting merchants of cool to emerge in years. Thanks to underground testimonials like "Air Forces" and "Chuuch," Jeezy's street swagger and authentic style has quickly made believers out of some the biggest players in the game, from Fabolous to P. Diddy. In his native Atlanta, and throughout the south, Young Jeezy has created nothing short of a movement. Like many hustlers on the mic, rapping wasn't in Jeezy's original game plan. As CEO of Corporate Thug Entertainment, Jeezy was content to stack his paper from the background.

Enjoy Spike Lee's masterpiece with the pizza all the residents of Stuyvesant Avenue between Quincy and Lexington want: cheese pizza with extra mozzarella! "Put some extra mozzarella on that!" "Extra cheese is two dollars." Salvatore "Sal" Fragione (Danny Aiello) is the Italian owner of a pizzeria in Brooklyn. A neighborhood local, Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito), becomes upset when he sees that the pizzeria's Wall of Fame exhibits only Italian actors. Buggin' Out believes a pizzeria in a black neighborhood should showcase black actors, but Sal disagrees. The wall becomes a symbol of racism and hate to Buggin' Out and to other people in the neighborhood, and tensions rise. Dir. Spike Lee. 1989. 125 min. Stick around after the film!

“What once struck me as wan camp I now appreciate as vulgar brio, the film’s sordid Las Vegas milieu of strip clubs and All About Eve–like deceit and machinations a down-and-dirty dissection of this country’s supply-and-demand soul-sickness.” – Melissa Anderson, The Village Voice “It is very easy to condemn movies that attempt to have trashy fun with sex. But I predict that Showgirls will reemerge one day, like Nomi and Cristal from their papier-mâché volcano, in triumphant glory to gain the praise that it deserves.” – Linda Williams, Film Quarterly “This 1995 movie has only improved with age—or maybe it’s just that viewers like me are only now catching up with the ideological ramifications.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum Nomi, an attractive drifter, arrives in Las Vegas with plans to become a dancer. Soon she gets a job stripping at one of the lesser joints on the strip, but eventually catches the eye of talent scouts who hire the performers for a big revue at a casino. She works her way into the cast, and eventually sets her sights on taking the starring role. Reviled upon release, time has been kind to Showgirls, which has since garnered acclaim from critics and filmmakers including Jim Jarmusch, Jacques Rivette and Quentin Tarantino. Dir. Paul Verhoeven. 1995. 131 min. Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.

Dasha Rush with Gunnar Haslam, A.Arias, Joey Anderson, Faso, and Free Magic - Elsewhere March 02, 2018 - Brooklyn

Mitsuko Uchida, Piano - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall March 02, 2018 - New York City

Mitsuko Uchida—one of the great Schubert interpreters—reveals the sweet, unforced lyricism, depth of emotion, and technical brilliance of the master's piano sonatas in the first of a two-season exploration of these works. Sudden harmonic shifts make the B-Major Sonata one of Schubert's most daring early works in the form. The set of variations in the A-Minor Sonata have a fluid, songlike quality, while the D-Major Sonata is a technically brilliant work with a lighthearted finale.

"La canción" is the humorous and refreshing story of Rafa, a young man from The Bronx with a passion for music. One night, Rafa dreams of a song he has never heard before and when he awakens he inexplicably knows the lyrics to the song. Captivated by the song and with the desire to adapt it to urban music, Rafa embarks on a quest to find its author, but in his search unexpectedly discovers the truth about his origins. In this new musical, Rafa tells his story through an amalgam of musical genres from Rap to tropical tunes like Salsa, Merengue and Bachata.

Dylan LeBlanc knows second chances don't come around often. But, neither do voices like his. Overwhelmed by the speed his gift would take him, from Applebee's server to "the new Neil Young" in a matter of months, he walked away from an unlikely major label deal after releasing two critically acclaimed albums. He slipped into a blur of booze and self-doubt. Exhausted and damaged at just 23-years-old, Dylan came home to Muscle Shoals, Alabama to write a new life for himself. In between the moments of clarity and a few familiar falls, he also wrote a new album, Cautionary Tale: a collection of shimmering, arresting songs with the same haunting vocals that caught the attention of Lucinda Williams and Bruce Springsteen, now with a sharpened edge honed by hastened maturity. "This record is about me getting honest with myself," says Dylan. "I had to let the guilt about the past go and find a new truth within myself. This time, I felt like I really had something to say." To help him say it, he sought out long-time friend Ben Tanner, the same guy who had secretly helped Dylan record his first songs after hours while working at fabled FAME Studios. (He also introduced a 16-year-old Dylan to Wilco, George Harrison, and Ryan Adams by way of an external hard drive). In between touring with Alabama Shakes, Ben was beginning to engineer records again at the label he started with another friend of Dylan's, Grammy Award-winning musician John Paul White, formerly of the Civil Wars. The two both produced and played on Cautionary Tale. "They prevented me from burying my words," says Dylan. "Doubt can often be my first instinct, and I'll try to cover things up with more elements to hide my voice, but I made up my mind to trust them.

The Little Match Girl - La vendedora de fósforos - Film Society of Lincoln Center March 02, 2018 - Midtown West

Moguillansky's follow-up to The Gold Beetle is a fantasia that elegantly weaves together disparate elements: Hans Christian Andersen's tale of the little match girl, Bresson's saintly abused donkey Balthazar, a Red Army Faction member's correspondence with an Argentine pianist, and a composer trying to mount an opera at the Teatro Colón. Winner of Best Argentine Film at last year's BAFICI, The Little Match Girl is infused with emotion, and never devolves into the obscure or didactic, despite its many literary and cinematic references. Featuring exquisite cinematography from Inés Duacastella, this spectacular work must not be missed. U.S. Premiere

Meklit is an Ethio-American vocalist, composer, and cultural instigator bringing together EthioJazz with a singer-songwriter's storytelling and strum. Her new album - When the People Move, the Music Moves Too - was released June 23rd on Six Degrees Records, receiving rave reviews and quickly reaching #4 on the iTunesWorld Music Charts. These 11 songs were deeply inspired by Mulatu Astatke (the Godfather of Ethio-Jazz). Back in 2011, he told Meklit, "find your contribution to Ethio-Jazz and keep on innovating!" Produced by multi-GRAMMY winning artist/songwriter Dan Wilson (Adele, John Legend, Dixie Chicks), the album also features world renowned musicians Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the violinist/whistler Andrew Bird.

HOW THE WEST WAS WON In the hands of certain songwriters, a story of resurrection and redemption might ring a little hollow. Worse, it might sound like pseudo-messianic psychobabble. But when the songwriter is Peter Perrett, the usual rules have never applied. Perrett, whose incisive songcraft and sardonic drawl made him one of the most distinctive voices of the Seventies (and briefly, the Nineties), has indeed got a tale of resurrection and redemption to tell. And even if he's telling it with copious doses of his trademark deadpan wit, the miracle is that he's telling it at all. Perrett made his reputation in The Only Ones (1976–1981) by writing about – and living – a life of the utmost decadence without worrying too much about the consequences. "I always flirt with death," began his most famous song ('Another Girl, Another Planet'), "I look ill but I don't care about it." It was an exotic universe full of strange creatures, but an incredibly dangerous one to inhabit. Not once but twice, Perrett retreated into a hermetic haze and transmitted nothing but radio silence for ten years. The two decades of his life that were surrendered to drug addiction were his own business, of course, but they were music's loss as well. What a fantastic surprise it is, then, to hear an older, wiser Perrett singing of having music back in his bloodstream again. Take a listen to 'Something In My Brain', a song towards the end of his debut solo album HOW THE WEST WAS WON: it's about making good choices, bad choices and ultimately the only choices that will guarantee survival. All too conscious of his mortality in 2017, Perrett no longer views illness as an occupational hazard or death as a source of amusement, like that swaggering young existentialist of 1978. When he gets to the line about being "just about capable of one last defiant breath," he's not exaggerating. But if his lung power is depleted, his other powers – his intuitive feel for words; his flair for idiosyncratic metaphors; his mordant wit – are still as sharp as razors. The image of the laboratory rat being forced to choose between food and crack is as darkly comical as anything Perrett ever wrote for The Only Ones. By the time he steps aside to allow his son Jamie to play an emotional guitar solo, 'Something In My Brain' ("an allegorical tale") has become a double-sided epiphany. Peter Perrett has rediscovered the importance of rock'n'roll, and rock'n'roll has rediscovered the importance of Peter Perrett. It will surely be hailed as one of the standout tracks on HOW THE WEST WAS WON, his new album on Domino, the comeback that nobody saw coming.

In 2014, The Wind and The Wave, a duo from Austin, TX, quietly released one of the best albums of the year. From The Wreckage glowed with a rootsy golden tone that encompassed everything from indie-folk, to alt-country to blues-rock to Southern psychedelia. Its creators, touring musician turned songwriter and producer Dwight Baker and singer-songwriter Patty Lynn, began making music together on a lark, never dreaming anything would come of it. Baker describes it as "kind of like what happens when two friends hold hands and jump in a freezing lake just to see what it feels like." Thanks to the undeniable chemistry between the pair, the music took on a life of its own and The Wind and The Wave soon found themselves with a major-label record deal, embarking on U.S. headlining tours supporting From The Wreckage, having their songs appear in such TV shows as Grey's Anatomy, and racking up millions of plays on Spotify and Apple Music. The band also earned itself a rabid following, with fans especially enamored of Lynn's feisty vocals and brutally personal lyrics about challenging relationships with lovers and family members as well as her relationship with herself. "People really treasure that album," Baker says. "We got tons of letters from people saying it saved their life. They're people who are conflicted and searching and they connect with Patty's lyrics more than anything." So when it came time for The Wind and The Wave to make their second album, Baker says he and Lynn felt "some bit of an obligation to deliver that again." The band definitely deliver on their new album, Happiness Is Not A Place, and the result is the sound of a band that has stretched itself and grown. Lynn manages to dig even deeper with her lyrics, exploring her feelings about marriage, commitment, and family, while acknowledging her own frantic mind. And the band's sonic palette is nervier, thanks to the album being recorded live by producer Butch Walker, a songwriter and musician who's produced records for such artists as Weezer and Panic! At The Disco. Where From The Wreckage was manicured and polished, thanks to Baker's meticulous production, Happiness Is Not A Place is "rawer and rougher," as Baker puts it. "To me, it sounds reckless with a rock and roll spirit and attitude, an 'I don't give a fuckedness,' if you will. I wanted it to make sense to our fans but to feel like a step forward musically. And I think we accomplished that. It's really rough around the edges, and there's a lot of urgency and pent-up stuff that probably came from both Patty and my nervousness about making a record with an outside producer."

Every life has a soundtrack... Colin Devlin's "Democracy of One" is not a debut, it's our reintroduction to an Irish songwriter who has crafted unforgettable soundscapes for over a decade. Led by Colin Devlin and his brother Peter, The Devlins refined their cinematic rock sound via a series of internationally-acclaimed albums that generated tracks used in dozens of film and television productions ranging from HBO's 'Six Feet Under' to 'Batman Forever' and 'Closer'. Their 1993 debut "Drift" received a four-star review in Rolling Stone, and subsequent efforts won praise worldwide. Now, singer Colin Devlin strikes out on his own with a warm, intimate album of personal reflections helmed by Pierre Marchand (Sarah McLachlan, Rufus Wainwright) and featuring drummer Matt Chamberlain (Tori Amos, Morrisey, Kanye West), with assists from Tom Sokolof, Fred Bouchard, Emm Gryner and Lloyd Cole. While The Devlins' athmospheric grooves consistently transcended both genre and era, "Democracy of One" takes Colin Devlin's reputation for erudite simplicity to another level. Devlin's new songs expore the language of a seasoned songwriter both lyrically and sonically: lush arrangements play out like beautifully-choreographed battles between the inner self and the world outside, as that voice - part raspy speak-singing, part unpolished tenor - mingles with the surrounding guitar, piano and strings to reveal untold emotional nuances. If this first solo effort is indicative of Colin Devlin's current musicial stature, there's no question "Democracy of One" will be lasting testament to his gifts as a songwriter.

"Powers is something of an anomaly. She's like the music scene's version of the protagonist in the film, "The Natural," having spent the "prime of her career" out of the spotlight -- in her case, tending to her family -- only to return from absolutely nowhere to wow and amaze. Where Robert Redford made all the fans sit up and cheer with mammoth home runs, Kerri Powers is going to make people listening to this album do the exact same thing with exceptional song writing and equally exceptional delivery." -- Chip McCabe, Lonesome Noise Kerri Powers was destined to be a musician from the start. While most kids her age spent their childhoods following frivolous pursuits, she spent hers reading, painting, writing stories, learning guitar and composing her first songs at the tender age of nine. By her own admission, she was a shy child, but her creative pursuits gave her an appreciation of the larger world around her. Those instincts seemed to have been bred naturally, given that there was undeniable talent embedded in her genes. Bing Crosby was a distant relative on her father's side, while her mother's relatives were said to be descended from author Herman Melville. Notably too, Powers' paternal grandmother made her living by playing piano and providing musical accompaniment for silent films, making her a show business standby back in the day.

Insane Clown Posse, Attila, Sylar, Cage, Lil Toenail, Lyte, Ouija , One Day Waiting, St. Maria - The Chance Theater March 03, 2018 - Poughkeepsie

When Insane Clown Posse (ICP) emerged from the darkness surrounding Detroit's underground music scene in the early 90s, the world had yet to imagine the impact that the hardcore hip-hop style spawned by these two artists — Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope — would bring to bear on mainstream music. Shunned by mainstream music players like MTV and castigated in the media, banned from radio airwaves and yanked from the shelves of "conventional" retail outlets, ICP was dealt a hand that seemed destined for swift and certain failure. Instead, the duo amassed a following of millions of fans endearingly called "Juggalos" and smashed through the ceiling of music industry expectation.

Evening Darling formed in 2015 with Erica Lane (vocals), Nick Lerangis (guitars, vocals), Dan Burke (drums) and Dave Letchinger (keyboard), after the quartet spent three years together playing in NYC's The Hunting Party. While they cut their teeth in the New York music scene playing a wistful brand of folk and Americana, the band began to brush up against their musical boundaries after recording their second EP, Sirens and Lights, at Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn with producer Jeremy Backofen (The Felice Brothers). After releasing Sirens and Lights and the accompanying music video on SPIN's Under The Gun review and Bushwick music blog APUTUMPU, Lane and her three bandmates decided to strike out on their own, booking a string of weekends on the road, taking the band up and down the East Coast with a brand new lineup and barely any time to rehearse. The foursome took new and old songs from Newport, RI, to tumbledown towns in upstate New York, all the way down to Durham, NC, and returned as Evening Darling.

SOUND HOUSE is inspired by the haunted and often funny sound worlds of idiosyncratic 20th century British composer Daphne Oram, inventor of Oramics, a precursor to the synthesizer. This multi-strand sound-generating machine serves as a structural model for an architectonic play in which disparate eras, worlds and time signatures collide as Daphne’s present-day alter ego, Constance Sneed, investigates the condition of invisibility that plagues her, too, and envisions a world in which old ladies do not die alone or forgotten. The collaborators have developed the play not only as text but as a “multidimensional object” -- precisely constructed yet constantly shifting -- in which sound not only carves out story, but functions as an experiential road map to the distortions of time and space that are central to Oram's ideas. Their mission: create a true “sound house,” an immersive sonic experience. The cast for SOUND HOUSE will feature Vicky Finney Crouch (Piper Theatre Productions), James Himelsbach (The Talking Band’s The Room Sings at LaMama; The Assembly’s I Will Look Forward to This Later at The New Ohio), and Susanna Stahlmann (Hedda Gabler with Wandering Bark Theatre).

Now Extended Through March 4 Only! Off-Broadway Premiere a co-production with The Bushwick Starr in association with New Georges by Kate Benson directed by Lee Sunday Evans with Noel Joseph Allain, Kate Benson, Ugo Chukwu, Jorge Cordova, Leah Karpel, and Julia Sirna-Frest "A stealthily ferocious, comfortingly hopeful, very funny new play. An exhortation to get out of your head and live, in thoughtful pursuit of joy." –The New York Times "Laugh-out-loud hilarious." –New York Magazine "Hugely worth seeing." Four Stars! A Critics Pick! –Time Out New York "Magical, mischievous, and just plan hilarious." –Theatermania A woman walks into a bar. Her name is Porto. She's a regular. She likes this bar: serious food, serious wine, serious bartender–a staple in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood (perhaps Bushwick?). Her friends, her wine, and her artisanal snacks are there; her doubts about being a Modern Woman are put on snooze. A handsome stranger walks in and orders something special. Disruption ensues: an upside-down romantic comedy unfolds inside and outside her head. Desires of all kinds are awakened with a ferocious thump. A nice smile is a nice smile, but can we enjoy the sausage once we know how it's made? WP Theater teams up with The Bushwick Starr in association with New Georges to present the Off-Broadway debut of the sold-out hit [PORTO] by Kate Benson and directed by WP Theater Lab Alum Lee Sunday Evans, whose last collaboration, the Obie Award-winning A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes, was a smash success at WP in 2015. [PORTO] was initially produced by WP Theater Lab Alum Rachel Karpf, John Del Gaudio and The Bushwick Starr, where it received its world premiere in their 2016-17 Season.

When it became clear that glam folk act He's My Brother She's My Sister was heading towards a hiatus, band members Rob Kolar and Lauren Brown decided to go off and find their own beat. What they learned from their previous outfit was that even folk fans want to find music that makes them move. That's the dictum that's guided the duo into the creation of KOLARS. As KOLARS, the pair create a kinetic brand of disco-inspired rockabilly they loving dub glam-a-billy. Kolar provides the soaring, fuzzy guitars while Brown pounds and literally stomps the percussion — she actually stands and tap-dances on a bass drum. Far from a gimmicky trick, the clacking feet add familiar moments one might expect from a hi-hat or the clapping of hands. Even without Brown's unique method of performing, the band's sound remains uniquely driving. Take their latest single "One More Thrill". Crafted like a grooving '70s country song carved out of the gleaming vibrations of modern rock, the track pulsates right into your chest. It takes your heart by the hand and leads you to the dance floor, daring you to not feel motivated to dance, shimmy, just escape the mundane. "'One More Thrill' is about someone who wants to break free from the monotony in their life to pursue their dreams," the band tells Consequence of Sound. "The video uses imagery and creatures to symbolize that struggle and the excitement of taking that chance.

Drift is the seventh full-length by NYC rock polymaths The Men, and it marks their tenth year as a band. The band's last album, the self-released Devil Music, was the sound of a band who had been through hell hitting reset and looking to their roots to rediscover themselves. On Drift, The Men return to their longtime label Sacred Bones Records and explore the openness that Devil Music helped them find. The immediately evident result of that exploration is the experimental quality of much of the material on Drift. Songwriters Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi chase their muses down a few dozen thrilling rabbit-holes over the course of the album's nine tracks. The songs on Drift veer in a number of directions, but notably, almost none of them feature a prominent electric guitar. The lone exception, "Killed Someone," is a rowdy riff-rocker, worthy of the finest moments of the band's now-classic Leave Home and Open Your Heart albums. The rest of the album drives down stranger highways. "Secret Light" is an improvisation based on an old piano riff of Perro's. "Maybe I'm Crazy" is a synth-driven dancefloor stomper for long after last call. "Rose on Top of the World" and "When I Held You in My Arms" are paisley-hued, psyched-out jams with big, beating hearts.

For Gala, a cast of twenty New Yorkers get dressed up in their sequined best to pull together their most enthusiastic moves. In true Jérôme Bel style, ranging from 8 to 80 years old, some performers are professional dancers, while others are dancing on stage for the first time. Through their movement, the gentle humanity of each performer lights up this inspired production. Jérôme Bel, the "mischievously entertaining" (The Guardian) French choreographer, explores the relationship between choreography and popular culture, dancer and audience, often using humor to break the formality of a theatrical performance. His approachable, playful work asks questions that may also be on kids' minds—what is dance? Who gets to be a dancer?

Del McCoury met David Grisman at the first show Del ever played (on banjo) with Bill Monroe in the spring of 1963 at New York University in Greenwich Village. Three years later, Del & Dawg played their first gig together and through the years they have shared the stage at venues and festivals across the country and in 2012 released Hardcore Bluegrass, a unique collection of bluegrass classics, made at two Dawg studio jam sessions in the 1990s. Del & Dawg celebrates the nearly 50-year bluegrass friendship that these two legendary musicians have shared. For more than fifty years, Del McCoury's music has defined authenticity for hard-core bluegrass fans as well as a growing number of fans among those only vaguely familiar with the genre. McCoury is something special, a living link to the days when bluegrass was made only in hillbilly honkytonks, schoolhouse shows and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, yet also a commandingly vital presence today, from prime time and late night talk show TV to music festivals where audiences number in the hundreds of thousands. For nearly half a century, mandolinist / composer / bandleader / producer David Grisman has been a guiding force in the evolving world of acoustic music. His musical range is wide and deep, embracing many styles, genres and traditions. An acoustic pioneer and innovator, David forged a unique personal artistic path, skillfully combining elements of the great American music/art forms of jazz and bluegrass with many international flavors and sensibilities to create his own distinctive idiom of "Dawg" music (the nickname given him by Jerry Garcia.) In doing so, he has inspired new generations of acoustic string musicians, while creating his own niche in contemporary music.

MAC-nominated ISLAND SONG follows the lives of five twenty-and-thirty-somethings, all navigating the ups and downs of New York City, both on their own and, sometimes unknowingly, with each other. Driven by an emotional pop-rock score, the story beautifully illustrates the random yet essential moments when New Yorkers cross each other's paths and how those moments can create a ripple effect.

Featuring amateurs, professionals and everything in between, the 20 dancers of Gala will be cast in NYC from all walks of life. Through their movement, the gentle humanity of each performer lights up this inspired production. Breaking the sanctity of the stage, this is a jumble of joys, failures, and stumbling insights into the uniting power of dance. Jérôme Bel, the "mischievously entertaining" (The Guardian) Paris-based choreographer, explores the relationship between choreography and popular culture, dancer and audience, often using humor to break the formality of a theater apparatus. Bel's work has often been referred to as conceptual. He questions both art and contemporary dance by deconstructing modes of presentation and the notion of authorship while problematizing the historical prominence of technical virtuosity in dance. Gala is part of the third annual Tilt Kids Festival, a cultural event for families presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF).

The Genesis of this all star tribute to John Coltrane, Johnny Hartman emanates from a conversation between renowned Saxophonist, Alex Foster and vocalist Kevin Harris. Their mutual love for the iconic record made by these two legendary jazz artists was the impetus behind forming a band worthy of performing this music with authenticity and reverence. First, find a great pianist. After many calls and possible collaborations, He settled on Mark Berman; a renowned pianist, composer and arranger, who has played and/or recorded with, the proverbial who's who of jazz, pop and rock: Aretha Franklin, Carole King, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Phoebe Snow, Leslie Gore, Gladys Knight, Wycliff Gordon, Hugh Jackman, Burt Bacharach, Chita Rivera, Richie Havens, and many others. He has also performed at Carnegie Hall, Radio City, The Blue Note, Birdland, Smalls, the Rainbow Room and Merkin Hall among other notable New York and international venues. Next, Kevin called the great Mike Clark,ke who gained worldwide recognition as one of America's foremost jazz and funk drummers while playing with Herbie Hancock's group in the early 1970s. Mike became known as a major innovator through his incisive playing on Hancock's Thrust album, which garnered him an international cult following. While often referred to as the Tony Williams of funk, Mike considers himself a jazz drummer, and in fact has become one of the most vital to sit behind a set.

Bill Charlap Trio plays the Songs of Leonard Bernstein - Landmark on Main Street March 03, 2018 - Port Washington

Grammy award winning pianist Bill Charlap is widely recognized as the premiere interpreter of the music of Leonard Bernstein. This year, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Bernstein's birth, Charlap is touring with his Trio, featuring bassist Peter Washington and drummer Bill Stewart.

Charlap has performed with many of the leading artists of our time including Phil Woods, Tony Bennett, Gerry Mulligan, Wynton Marsalis, Freddy Cole and Houston Person. Born in New York City, Charlap began playing the piano at age three. His father was Broadway composer Moose Charlap, whose credits include Peter Pan, and his mother is singer Sandy Stewart, who toured with Benny Goodman, and was a regular on the Perry Como show. In 2005, Charlap and Stewart released the acclaimed CD, Love Is Here To Stay (Blue Note).

In 1997 Charlap formed his trio, now recognized as one of the leading groups in jazz. He received two Grammy Award nominations for Somewhere: The Songs of Leonard Bernstein and The Bill Charlap Trio: Live at the Village Vanguard.

Time magazine wrote, "Bill Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved...no matter how imaginative or surprising his take on a song is, he invariably zeroes in on its essence." In 2016, Tony Bennett & Bill Charlap: The Silver Lining, The Songs of Jerome Kern, was awarded a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Album. In April, the Bill Charlap Trio released Notes from New York, their debut recording for the Impulse label.In 2017, Charlap celebrated his 13th year as Artistic Director of New York City's Jazz in July Festival at 92Y. He has produced concerts for Jazz at Lincoln Center, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Chicago Symphony Center and the Hollywood Bowl. Charlap is married to renowned jazz pianist and composer Renee Rosnes, and the two artists often collaborate in a duo piano setting. In 2010 Charlap and Rosnes released Double Portrait (Blue Note). Bill Charlap is currently the Director of Jazz Studies at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey.

Adhoc Presents Acid Dad (Record Release) - T.V. Baby, Dougie Poole - Baby's All Right March 03, 2018 - Brooklyn

Non-country from urban anti-cowboy. What is this pain? How do you love? Will schmaltz clog the heart? Will laughter set it free?

At the Dawn of the new century, everything is changing…and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair… and what it means to live in America.

Phony Ppl either crash-landed from the past or the future: critics and fans can't decide. Since throwing warehouse shows around New York in 2011, the five Brooklyn natives have tossed together vintage astral funk, soulful complex R&B, and dusted-out hip-hop which evokes a newfound genre-less form of music originating in the basement of a Bedford-Stuyvesant home studio where the band begin making music together in high school. Co-founded by lead vocalist Elbee Thrie and keyboardist Aja Grant, whose brother Bari is the bassist, the band self-released hits like "Why iii Love the Moon" which is featured in EA Sports' NBA Live 16 and "End of the Night," and was praised by none other than Tyler the Creator as one of his favorite songs of 2016. The dynamic quintet also features Elijah Rawk on guitar and drummer Matthew Byas. Together they have been direct support on tours with like-minded experimental performers Theophilus London, Erykah Badu and The Roots. Their most recent effort, 2015's "Yesterday's Tomorrow" gained rotation on BBC1 and Odd Future Radio, and the L.A. Times applauded it's "meteoric rise" via social media, with the album peaking at #6 on the iTunes R&B chart. The band is releasing a new, and as of now untitled, follow up LP in 2018.

With an out-of-this-world sound evoking both the Go-Go's and 90s power-punk, Seattle's The Not-Its! mix crunchy guitars and smooth, four-part harmonies, for a show full of perfectly crafted pop gems about everyday kid stuff from the first day of school to taking a bath. For almost ten years, The Not-Its! have rocked kids and families with their up-tempo albums and live concerts that give children their first "rock show" experience. This Seattle kindie rock quintet will have children and their parents on their feet and raising their hands for more from the moment they hit the dance floor. So grab your pink & black tutus and skinny ties and join The Not-Its! Nation!

Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the world renowned comedy club, Laugh Factory. He later showcased at The Comedy Store and became a regular, performing nightly. After he found success on the L.A comedy circuit, Mencia was named "International Comedy Grand Champion" from Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of Star Search). This led to appearances on "In Living Color," "The Arsenio Hall Show," "Moesha" and "An Evening at the Improv." Mencia comes from a humble background, born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. His parents sent him to the United States when he was about three months old, where he was raised in the Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles, California by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens, Mencia moved back to Honduras because his family wanted him to avoid the destructive gang culture of East Los Angeles. When Mencia later returned to Los Angeles, he showed such educational prowess that he was immediately promoted to the tenth grade. Soon after, he successfully graduated from Garfield High School. Most recently, Mencia has gone back to his comedic roots, performing at a number of comedy venues – allowing him to share his newest material with a more intimate audience. His current tour, called the "C 4 Urself Tour," has been making stops all around the country, performing to eager audiences.

Previous guest artists have included: Dr. Victor Lewis, Robin Eubanks, Sherman Irby, and Duane Eubanks.   The 2018 guest host is the exciting jazz trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, who has brought her dynamic trumpet sound into the music of influential bandleaders like Terri-Lyne Carrington and Esperanza Spalding, as well as the big bands of Darcy James Argue and Maria Schneider. She also leads her own groups, which have continued to garner glowing reviews and a loyal fan base around the globe. As a dedicated jazz educator at the University of Michigan, the Peabody Conservatory, and with the Thelonious Monk Institute - Ingrid looks forward to working with the students and performing with the Brooklyn Music School Jazz Faculty Ensemble. She will bring her expertise to work with middle school students throughout the day and perform with the Brooklyn Music School Jazz Faculty Ensemble for a closing concert at 5:30pm.   Though the festival is noncompetitive, the guest artist and the BMS faculty will be adjudicating performances to offer suggestions/encouragement and will award certificates for outstanding musicianship. The Brooklyn Music School intends for this festival to strengthen middle school jazz programs and build jazz community among young musicians in Brooklyn.   Born in Vancouver and raised in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Ingrid Jensen has been hailed as one of the most gifted trumpeters of her generation. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 1989, she went on to record three highly acclaimed CDs for the ENJA record label, soon becoming one of the most in-demand trumpet players on the global jazz scene.   After a teaching stint in Europe in her early twenties - as the youngest professor in the history of the Bruckner Conservatory in Linz, Austria - Ingrid settled in New York City in the mid-1990s where she joined the innovative jazz orchestras of Maria Schneider (1994-2012) and Darcy James Argue. More recently, Ingrid has been performing with the Grammy-winning Terri-Lyne Carrington and her Mosaic Project. Ingrid is a featured soloist on the Christine Jensen Jazz Orchestra's Juno-award-winning album, Treelines (2011), and its successor, Habitat (2013). She has performed with a multi-generational cast of jazz legends ranging from Clark Terry to Esperanza Spalding; Ingrid has also performed alongside British R&B artist Corrine Bailey Rae on Saturday Night Live, and recorded with Canadian pop icon Sarah McLachlan. In addition to her busy sideman and featured soloist schedule, Jensen leads her own quintet, quartet and organ trio. Her own bands have garnered glowing reviews and a loyal fan base in Australia, South Africa, almost every country in Europe, across Canada, the US, South America (including Brazil, Peru and Chile), Japan and Mexico.   Jensen is also a dedicated jazz educator, having taught trumpet at the University of Michigan and Peabody Conservatory, performing and lecturing as a guest artist with the Thelonious Monk Institute High School group featuring Herbie Hancock, and performing and teaching at the Centrum Jazz Workshop, The Dave Brubeck Institute, the Banff Centre Workshop in Jazz & Creative Music and the Stanford Jazz Camp and the Geri Allen Jazz Camp for young women.   Since her victory at the Carmine Caruso Trumpet Competition in 1995, Jensen has since sat on the judges' panel twice for said competition. She is regularly invited to trumpet festivals around the world, including a prestigious invitation in 2011 to work with classical trumpet maestro Håkan Hardenberger and the Swedish Wind Orchestra. Ingrid plays a custom Monette trumpet, built personally by the master builder Dave Monette.   One of Ingrid's most frequent and closest collaborators is her sister, the saxophonist and composer Christine Jensen. In addition to Christine's Jazz Orchestra, the sisters recently released an exciting small group recording featuring the brilliant guitarist Ben Monder.   Other projects Ingrid has been invited to lend her voice to include: David's Angels (Sweden), Kari Ikonen (Finland), Marianne Trudel (Montreal), Ellen Rowe (USA), Adam Birnbaum (USA), Sharel Cassity (USA), Dwight Adams (USA),Tobias Meinhart (Germany/US), numerous all-star groups including a recent European tour with Renee Rosnes, Terri-Lyne Carrington, Anat Cohen, Linda Oh and Melissa Aldana.   Ingrid was recently hired as the official Artist in Residence for the 2018 Monterey Jazz Festival alongside saxophonist and bandleader Tia Fuller.   The Brooklyn Music School views music and performance as the birthright of all people, an essential way that human beings connect with others and explore their creativity. The study of music has been demonstrated to enhance academic learning and helps to develop discipline and confidence that will serve children well throughout their lives. As part of the vision of reinventing the community music school for the 21st Century, BMS is dedicated to: * Making high quality musical instruction approachable and affordable to a wide range of students, * Creating frequent opportunities for performance for our students and cultural enrichment for our community, * Representing a wide range of musical traditions, including European, African, Middle Eastern, and American to represent the diversity of Brooklyn's musical talent, and * Offering a warm and welcoming space for families and individuals to explore new talents and make lasting friendships.   For more information, visit www.brooklynmusicschool.org.

A highly talented and uniquely gifted young composer, Jade Synstelien has immersed himself in the venerable traditions of jazz while developing an irrepressible individuality in his compositions and performance. Jade's music is inspired by the singular goal of bringing American musical heritage to the people of the United States, to spread the understanding and appreciation of our major cultural contribution to the world. Jazz--and all the music born of the jazz tradition--is the truest example of real equality and unification for all people of the earth. Jade Synstelien was born on August 17th, 1974, in Minneapolis. A musician, composer, arranger, and band leader, Jade picked up the alto sax at age eleven but traded it for a guitar at thirteen. He grew up traveling and living all over the United States, and has worked as a professional musician since the age of fifteen, he has become well-versed in all styles of musical performance. Synstelien began composing when he was thirteen and by seventeen was scoring music for big bands, funk and dance bands, world beat, and reggae bands, and eventually large-scale symphonic jazz works. Ready to form the band that could execute any ideas he could compose, he strove to combine tradition with innovation and offer up something that musicians and audiences would love equally.

Voice Cult: Sing. Connect. Express. Heal. Singing together can be closer than touching. ::::: About Voice Cult ::::: ON the first Saturday of every month at House of Yes, we ask you to travel from near and far, and to bring your voice to us. You have been singing since the beginning of time. We connect, align, vibrate, express, process, remember, forget, wish, apologize, forgive, go into altered states, heal ourselves and each other, flee, find, talk to dead grandfathers, lure each other into love, become our own mothers, and paint the room with iridescence. And frequently we have no idea what the hell we are doing, which is okay too.If you can speak, then you can sing - even if you have only ever croaked out thin ratchety wisps of songs and especially if your mom told you that you were tone-deaf in the fourth grade. If you are a great singer, come because you love singing, the more the merrier. We perform vocal healing rituals. We sing through the colors of the rainbow. We sing in circles. We sing on the floor. We sing for aerialists flying through the sky. We hug our own shadows while singing Soundgarten. We are irreverent and we like to try new things.

Gypsy is a 1959 musical with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Arthur Laurents. Gypsy is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, and focuses on her mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with "the ultimate show business mother." It follows the dreams and efforts of Rose to raise two daughters to perform onstage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life. The character of Louise is based on Lee, and the character of June is based on Lee's sister, the actress June Havoc. The musical contains many songs that became popular standards, including "Everything's Coming up Roses", "Together (Wherever We Go)", "Small World", "You Gotta Get a Gimmick", "Let Me Entertain You", "All I Need Is the Girl", and "Rose's Turn". It is frequently considered one of the crowning achievements of the mid-20th century's conventional musical theatre art form, often called the "book musical".

When the Greyboy Allstars first formed, two decades ago next year, they were nothing short of groundbreaking. They have influenced an entire generation of bands playing improvisational music in a funk format. Meanwhile, they have outlasted most of their contemporaries, because they have continued to enjoy working together and have honed the essence of their collaboration – also refining their chops while busy with their highly successful individual musical endeavors – without ever chasing trends. Throughout, they have continued to operate completely independently, slightly under the radar, with no major label support or radio airplay, while attracting thousands to legendary shows in cities across the country. On Inland Emperor, the Greyboy Allstars' fourth studio album to date, one hears the benefits that accrue when a group of exceptional players with a wide variety of tastes and musical experiences continue to collaborate for 20 years. The cornerstones of The Greyboy Allstars sound remain the same: funk, soul and jazz; or, looked at another way, rhythm and spontaneity. Without attempting to recreate them, the band has drawn upon elements of many genres: old soundtracks, psychedelic garage rock, '80s dance music, '70s FM soft rock and Tropicalia, to name a few. As a result, Inland Emperor has the vibe of a mixtape whose tracks are united by an emphasis upon rhythm. The Greyboy Allstars came together in 1994, when the individual members were asked to perform at a record release party for the landmark acid jazz and club staple "Freestylin," by San Diego's DJ Greyboy, who was famous for spinning `70s soul and funk. The guys so enjoyed playing together that they decided to continue on as a band. Right out of the box, The Greyboy Allstars starting playing weekly at San Diego's now defunct Green Circle, weekends at San Francisco's Elbo Room and various clubs throughout Europe. By playing danceable boogaloo music within the soul jazz genre, they became a national and international phenomenon. The lineup of the band remains nearly the same as it did on their breakthrough, West Coast Boogaloo: Denson on horns and vocals, Robert Walter on keyboards, Elgin Park (aka Michael Andrews) on guitars and vocals, and Chris Stillwell on bass. Original drummer Zak Najor has passed the baton on to Aaron Redfield, an old friend of the band and frequent collaborator. While DJ Greyboy is no longer a member of the band, he remains a central figure in their artistic output, having introduced the band to many of the records that inspire their sound, produced their first album and appeared on 2007's What Happened to Television? At this point, the band's members are as well known for their non-Allstars projects as for their work with the band. The individual members have gone to score film and television shows, work with platinum artists and bands both on the road and in the studio, and head their own highly regarded solo projects. Even for these now well-seasoned musicians, the catalytic force that takes hold when they collaborate with each other seems to pleasantly surprise them. For Inland Emperor, they worked out the arrangements during the recording, which took place live over just a few sessions at Elgin Park's studio in Glendale, CA. Denson says of this accelerated pace of creation, "We do in one week would take me two months to do in any other situation." Amazingly, the 12 tracks comprising the album, mostly written by groupings of the band's members, are seamless performances, and sound as if they'd been rehearsed and road-tested for months. Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Mickey Petralia (Beck, Peaches, Eels, Flight of the Conchords) mixed the tracks, expertly capturing the energy and collaborative joy inherent in the recording. Inland Emperor follows the critically acclaimed What Happened to Television?, which prompted The Los Angeles Times to write, "The [music of] this talented collective feels so cozy and organic you never want to leave its inviting groove." This spring and summer, audiences across the country will have opportunities to experience the Greyboy Allstars' music in its ideal format: live. Given the likelihood that the chance won't come again soon, these are shows not to miss.

Excision, Liquid Stranger, Figure, Megalodon, Dion Timmer, Monxx - Terminal 5 March 03, 2018 - New York

The name itself presents a terrifying image- a mangled, forced extraction, quite literally "removal by cutting". It should come as no surprise that the sounds behind this name are just as filthy, brutal, and unforgiving as the namesake suggests. Excision shows are like no other- a virtual apocalypse of twisting and morphing sounds turn massive crowds into a frenzy, as virtual walls of bass are relentlessly impaled time and time again upon their fragile bodies and ears. Your ears will ring and your eyes will roll into the back of your head as you are suspended in what can only be called a true sensory overload. Bass will rain down from above for hours as Excision's skills as a DJ and producer shine like an unholy light from the underworld. The true champion of bass music, Excision hails from Kelowna, British Columbia. The founder of the ROTTUN label, a bass music conglomerate that has shaped the sound of modern Bass music, Excision has created a vast roster of allies that has only bolstered his spot as a warrior of bass music. Armed with a library of destruction and filth, Excision has time and time again tested the limits of electronic music with vastly different sets that encompass a full range of genres. The things you see and hear during the precious time you are engaged by Excision's sounds will eclipse your mind for a lifetime, as you are constantly enlightened by the true fervor and energy that only an Excision set can provide.

Natalie Diaz begins a recent craft talk, "Building The Emotional Image," considering the interplay between images, story, and history in her poems, reflecting on how her images "mostly come from my home, the place where my brain was formed and where all the little electrical circuits in my brain learned to fire." In this course, we'll follow her lead, exploring the infinite possibilities of our own obsessions, interests, and memories. Each session will be devoted to generative writing, the creation of new work, and chances to discuss the surprising drafts that emerge. And to illuminate and complicate our thinking, we will read a dynamic array of contemporary poems (Aracelis Girmay, Patricia Smith, Vahni Capildeo, Anne Carson, Sarah Howe, sam sax, Layli Long Soldier, Fady Joudah, and more). Open to experiments, we will unsettle habits and find inspiration in the unconventional.

On November 2, 1972, 67 Bolivian political prisoners executed a daring escape from a makeshift jail in the middle of Lake Titicaca during a soccer game; the prisoners then sought asylum in Peru. Their stand against the brutality of Hugo Banzer's dictatorship was a watershed moment, but interviews with locals who were forced to assist the dissidents reveal the cruel and complicated legacy of this "heroic" tale. The directors of this film admit their inability (personal and creative) to fully deal with history and memory, relying on a series of narrative devices, sometimes controversial, but always cinematic, to tell the story. U.S. Premiere

Q&A with Chris Gude In this experimental road movie, director Chris Gude (Mambo Cool) follows two smugglers attempting to cross into Colombia from Venezuela. As the men drive across the sun-soaked terrain of the Guajira peninsula, occasionally stopping off to wander or play pool in the lonely ruins of abandoned buildings, their journey comes to symbolize a search for an idealized land. Gesturing toward Colombia's colonial legacy (such as when the pair listen to a Hugo Chávez radio broadcast about Simón Bolívar), this beautifully photographed film gives the viewer ample room to ponder questions of space and identity. U.S. Premiere Screening with: The Mouth / La Bouche Camilo Restrepo, France, 2017, 19m Susu with English subtitles Following his 2016 film Cilaos, Restrepo again experiments with the musical genre in a film that uses radical aesthetics as a means of standing up to social injustice.

Dance with MMDG: Family Class with Mark Morris Dance Group - Mark Morris Dance Center March 03, 2018 - Brooklyn

Fun for the whole family, this free class is taught by Mark Morris Dance Group company members and accompanied by live music. All ages and levels are welcome. Featured repertory: Layla & Majnun (2016) Taught by: Brian Lawson Nicole Sabella Accompaniment: Ai Isshiki (piano)

Recipient of the Special Jury Prize at Rotterdam, Rey tells the curious story of Orélie-Antoine de Tounens, a French lawyer who attempted to create an independent state for the indigenous peoples of Araucanía (part of present-day Chile) and Patagonia (Argentina) in 1860 and claimed he was its king. Honoring the ambiguous nature of Tounens's life—it's unclear if he was a spy, a huckster, an above-average colonial exploiter, or actually summoned by a Mapuche deity—Rey uses a variety of formal techniques and visual styles, including papier-mâché masks, battered 16mm stock, and educational film aesthetics. U.S. Premiere

The class is designed for those who have accomplished the basic tap foundations.We offer a blend of styles in our tap classes, ranging from the classic Broadway Tap moves of 42nd Street and Fred Astaire movies to the freestyle Rhythm Tap made popular by Savion Glover!

Hand-selected by the artist to accompany his exhibition Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away, this film series screens on Saturdays during the month of March in the New Media Theater. The Exorcist (1973), dir. William Friedkin, 122 min. "[The Exorcist] was shown to Vo by his horror-film-obsessed mother at the age of seven, when it no doubt made a terrifyingly indelible impression. The film's interrogation of religious faith and doubt, its depiction of the appropriated and dislocated body, and its themes of parental nurture and neglect can all be similarly traced in the artist's work." – exhibition curator Katherine Brinson One of the most profitable horror movies ever made and the first example of the genre to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, this tale of an exorcism is based loosely on reported actual events. It centers on a young girl's bizarre and distressing behavior, which is identified by a local priest as a demonic possession. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert to help with the difficult job.

Meet Me At Delancey / Essex group exhibition curated by Jennifer Rizzo Opening Reception: March 3rd, 6 - 8pm On view: March 3rd - 25th, 2018 Spoke NYC is pleased to present Meet Me At Delancey / Essex, a group exhibition featuring over 20 artists living and working in the greater NYC area. As the local landscape continuously changes, Spoke Art recognizes the importance for the street, lowbrow, pop surrealism and new contemporary genres to have representation and an outlet to exhibit work within the community. The gallery aims to provide a cornerstone for supporters of these genres and to continue to build a sense of community within the art world in New York City. Many works are directly inspired by city life, such as Olek’s never before exhibited video from 2010 which documents her guerrilla style installation, crocheting fruit and vegetables that were then added to the produce selection at the historic Essex Street Market. Alternatively, Luke O’Sullivan’s architecturally inspired sculpture depicts imaginary structures and their underground landscape. About the exhibition, curator Jennifer Rizzo states, “Meet Me At Delancey / Essex is a celebration of community, in every sense of the word - by bringing together both emerging and established artists as well as being a physical hub for creative exchange, my hope is that SPOKE NYC becomes the go to destination for the lowbrow and new contemporary genres.” Please join us Saturday, March 3rd from 6 - 8pm for the opening reception of Meet Me At Delancey / Essex. Complimentary beverages will be served and some of the artists will be in attendance.

Christina Custode is a Grammy Recording Academy Artist and multi-award winning singer songwriter and pianist currently based out of the greater Buffalo, NY area. She recently released her first full length original project "From Here". The album consists of 13 original songs written and performed by Custode and produced by the legendary Stuart Epps (Elton John, George Harrison, Led Zeppelin). The second single from this project titled "High Water" was just released. She released her first single from the project ,"All For Her" , in August of 2016. Her first EP "I" (2011), sold out all physical CDs within the first 10 months of release. The project, which consisted of eight songs (all music and lyrics written and arranged by Christina Custode) put Custode on the singer/songwriter map and heralded as an excellent start to a long and promising career. Custode is a graduate from the prestigious Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York (BM '10, MA '14). She is heavily influenced by songwriting greats such as Billy Joel, Jewel and John Lennon and has been referred to as "the Carole King of her Generation". She is a force to be reckoned with on the stage. Bringing her songs, stories and sass to each engagement, she is dynamic performer who is effortless in various performance settings. Christina brings her songs to life through engaging stories and witty banter, keeping audiences of all sizes engaged and entertained. Think Joan Jett meets Chelsea Handler in a bar, with a piano.

Wuki is the genre-blending solo project of Denver-based producer Kris Barman. Influenced by the sounds of Detroit ghettotech and Chicago footwork scenes, Barman's ability to seamlessly mix booty, breaks, electro, and house into hard-hitting club-shakers has become a trademark of the Wuki sound. The Mile High City resident has earned releases and remixes for notable imprints such as OWSLA, Main Course, Fool's Gold, and Ultra - not to mention support from the likes of Knife Party, Skrillex, and Rolling Stone Magazine.

The name itself presents a terrifying image- a mangled, forced extraction, quite literally "removal by cutting". It should come as no surprise that the sounds behind this name are just as filthy, brutal, and unforgiving as the namesake suggests. Excision shows are like no other- a virtual apocalypse of twisting and morphing sounds turn massive crowds into a frenzy, as virtual walls of bass are relentlessly impaled time and time again upon their fragile bodies and ears. Your ears will ring and your eyes will roll into the back of your head as you are suspended in what can only be called a true sensory overload. Bass will rain down from above for hours as Excision's skills as a DJ and producer shine like an unholy light from the underworld. The true champion of bass music, Excision hails from Kelowna, British Columbia. The founder of the ROTTUN label, a bass music conglomerate that has shaped the sound of modern Bass music, Excision has created a vast roster of allies that has only bolstered his spot as a warrior of bass music. Armed with a library of destruction and filth, Excision has time and time again tested the limits of electronic music with vastly different sets that encompass a full range of genres. The things you see and hear during the precious time you are engaged by Excision's sounds will eclipse your mind for a lifetime, as you are constantly enlightened by the true fervor and energy that only an Excision set can provide.

Two bearded Austin, TX musical misfits with an affinity for D.I.Y. electro-trap production, clever lyrical quips, and sticky alternative hooks, Missio regularly subvert expectations. Case in point, an upbeat lullaby-esque melody about, "Throwing middle fingers in the air" introduced the duo—Matthew Brue & David Butler—to audiences everywhere with the aptly titled breakout single, "Middle Fingers." At the beginning of 2017, the track exploded on SiriusXM's Alt Nation, and the band landed a deal with RCA Records. This signature style stands out as the product of their unique and undeniable union as well as years of dedication. Founded in 2014 as a side project for Matthew, longtime friend David joined him after one studio session. "At the time, we were both coming out of other bands," recalls Matthew. "I called him to play these demos I had. We were in the same spot musically, and we just related to each other." "There's no bullshit in Missio," David declares. "It's all from the heart and genuine. The balance between us is perfect. Matthew is more of a classic songwriter who will sit down and write melodies for hours. I bring my producer background. I love arranging, I love beats, and I love sounds. The marriage of those two worlds completes a puzzle." For all of the harmony between them, their respective backgrounds represent something of a Yin and Yang. Born and raised in Colorado, Matthew received classical piano training as a child and toured the world in a choir. In Houston, seven years his senior David "grew up in the least musical household ever" and didn't pick up guitar until the age of 16. David escaped the Office Space-style corporate world in order to pursue a career as a producer and audio engineer, while Matthew spent a year living in a remodeled 1974 Airstream, "learning how to write better songs." They had crossed paths many times in the Austin music scene, but their initial collaboration would prove life-changing—literally. "When we were in the studio, we just started talking about our lives," David goes on. "Completely unplanned, I mentioned that my wife and I were looking for a roommate..."

Born at the same time on the same day in the same hospital, Pig and Runt have been inseparable ever since. They speak in their own language, play by their own rules, and create a world for themselves in which boundaries blur between truth and illusion. Until, on their seventeenth birthday, they discover something more. As night falls, and the disco and drink take hold, they spiral violently out of control. Enda Walsh's breathtaking breakthrough play, Disco Pigs, "didn't so much debut at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe, as erupt there." (The Guardian). Marking the 20th anniversary of its explosive British debut, Disco Pigs comes to the Irish Repertory Theatre starring Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter, My Name is Emily) and Colin Campbell (Dublin by Lamplight, Through A Glass Darkly).

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: A chance to finally fit in. Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is the new American musical about life and the way we live it. Dear Evan Hansen has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere. The New York Times calls it "a gorgeous new musical for anyone with a beating heart." And NBC Nightly News calls this bold new musical "an anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond."

Stomp is a joyful, witty and wordless show that has been seen all over the world. An eight-member cast with energy to burn creates beautiful music and sly humor with found objects: Zippo lighters, push brooms, wooden poles, hammer handles, garbage cans, inner tubes, matchboxes—and yes, even the kitchen sink. There's no traditional narrative; both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in this unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

A vibrant and exciting tale from the great creatives at Disney, The Lion King is a story of love and redemption that nobody should miss.

'Seussical the Musical' - Harrison High School Performing Arts Center Through March 04, 2018 - Harrison

Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II Then They Came for Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II examines a dark episode in US history when, in the name of national security, the government incarcerated 120,000 citizens and legal residents during World War II without due process or other constitutional protections to which they were entitled. Executive Order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, set in motion the forced removal and imprisonment of all people of Japanese ancestry (citizens and non-citizens alike) living on or near the West Coast. This exhibition features works by renowned photographers Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and others documenting the eviction of Japanese Americans and permanent Japanese residents from their homes as well as their subsequent lives in incarceration camps. Also included are photographs by incarcerated photographer Toyo Miyatake. This timely exhibition reexamines this history and presents new research telling the stories of the individuals whose lives were upended due to racial bigotry.

Maceo Parker: his name is synonymous with Funky Music, his pedigree impeccable; his band: the tightest little funk orchestra on earth. Everyone knows by now that he's played with each and every leader of funk, his start with James Brown, which Maceo describes as " like being at University "; jumping aboard the Mothership with George Clinton; stretching out with Bootsy's Rubber Band. He's the living, breathing pulse that connects the history of Funk in one golden thread. The cipher that unravels dance music down to its core. "Everything's coming up Maceo," concluded DownBeat Magazine in a 1991 article at the beginning of Maceo Parker's solo career. At the time Maceo was remembered by aficionados of funk music as sideman; appreciated mainly by those in the know. More than a decade and a half later Maceo Parker has been enjoying a blistering solo career. For the past sixteen years Maceo has been building a new funk empire, fresh and stylistically diverse. He navigates deftly between James Brown's 1960's soul and George Clinton's 1970's freaky funk while exploring mellower jazz and the grooves of hip-hop. His collaborations over the years performing or recording or both have included Ray Charles, Ani Difranco, James Taylor, De La Soul, Dave Matthews Band and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. His timeless sound has garnered him a fresh young fan base.

Robin Hood Now, updates the famous folklore by drawing inspiration from real stories about acts of kindness shared by children around New York. Choreographed by Artistic Director Chelsea Koenig, a female Robin Hood is inspired to become an active part in her community and creates “Green Hoods for Good,” a space for children to share their worries and challenges. Robin and her friends spring into action by inventing, recycling, creating, and more, all while trying to find a way to celebrate a park that is to be closed down. This production is a perfect example of how it is possible for all of us to help shape the world we live in today. The main character, Robin embodies the spirit of doing good for others, and inspires us to pay it forward. Throughout the show audience members will dance in their seats, or even on the stage, and they’ll help Robin and her friends celebrate the park by generating new dance moves. Robin Hood Now comes at a perfect time, and is thoughtfully crafted for children of all ages and their families to enjoy together.

In THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME, collaboratively created by the performance laboratory Door 10, audience members wear individual headphones to drop inside the imagined unconscious of avant-garde writer Gertrude Stein. Through this intimate approach, the audience experiences Stein’s repeated and unusual phrases as layers of thoughts, voices and memories interwoven into a rich soundscape. THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME is a fractured journey through Stein’s daily routine in France during World War II as she struggles with writer’s block, listens to the radio, shares a meal with Alice B. Toklas, and confronts her own mortality. Dramatizing her friendships with Vichy official Bernard Faÿ and humanist playwright Thornton Wilder, the piece examines Stein’s forgotten politics and raises questions about the inextricable link between the political, personal, and artistic. The cast for THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME will feature Stephanie Roth-Haberle (Drama Desk Award nominee for Artist Descending a Staircase; The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Christina Rouner (The Malcontent with Red Bull Theater; Coram Boy on Broadway), Ean Sheehy (Red-Eye to Havre de Grace at New York Theater Workshop; Shrunken Heads at Playwrights Horizons), and Ben Williams (Gatz with Elevator Repair Service; A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes with New Georges/Women’s Project). The design team will include Sound Design by Ben Williams (Elevator Repair Service), Costume Design by Alice Tavener (PIONEERS#goforth at Jack; I’m Bleeding All Over at LaMama), Lighting Design by Reza Behjat (Tear a Root from the Earth at the New Ohio) and Set Design by Amy Rubin (Miles for Mary with The Mad Ones at Bushwick Starr/Playwrights Horizons; How to Live on Earth with Colt Coeur) with Associate Director Jim Dawson and Door 10 line producer and co-founder Sarah Peterson. Performances will be Wednesday, February 14 at 7pm, Thursday, February 22 at 7pm, Friday, February 23 at 3pm & 8pm, Sunday, February 25 at 7pm, Tuesday, February 27 at 7pm, Wednesday, February 28 at 7pm, Friday, March 2 at 8pm, and Saturday, March 3 at 2pm.

In the middle-eastern town of Agrabah, Princess Jasmine is feeling hemmed in by her father's desire to find her a royal groom. Meanwhile, the Sultan's right-hand man, Jafar, is plotting to take over the throne. When Jasmine sneaks out of the palace incognito, she forms an instant connection with Aladdin, a charming street urchin and reformed thief. After being discovered together, Aladdin is sentenced to death, but Jafar saves him by ordering him to fetch a lamp from the Cave of Wonders. Where there's a lamp, there's a Genie, and once Aladdin unwittingly lets this one out, anything can happen! Will Aladdin's new identity as "Prince Ali" help him win Jasmine's heart and thwart Jafar's evil plans? Will the Genie's wish for freedom ever come true?

Based on the 2007 film by the late Adrienne Shelly, Waitress follows Jenna, a pregnant waitress in the south trapped in an abusive marriage and looking for a happy ending. She finds relief—and potentially that happy ending—by making creatively titled pies and forming a romance with an unlikely newcomer.

Hamilton is the story of the unlikely Founding Father determined to make his mark on the new nation as hungry and ambitious as he is. From bastard orphan to Washington's right-hand man, rebel to war hero, a loving husband caught in the country's first sex scandal, to the Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy. George Washington, Eliza Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson and Hamilton's lifelong friend/foil Aaron Burr all make their mark in this astonishing new musical exploration of a political mastermind.

Machinal at Adelphi University from February 27 – March 4 - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center Through March 04, 2018 - Garden City

The students of the Adelphi University Department of Theatre present Machinal, a gripping drama by American journalist and playwright Sophie Treadwell. Machinal will run from February 27 through March 4 in the Olmsted Theatre in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (Adelphi PAC), 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York. Machinal is directed by Maggie Lally. It’s America’s Golden Age, a time of happiness, freedom and prosperity – or is it? For one young woman in the industrial, male-dominated world of the 1920s, life is nothing like she hoped it would be. Tormented and unfulfilled in a passionless marriage and an unwanted motherhood, she finally discovers joy in the form of an illicit love affair and her life is forever changed. A groundbreaking work in the landscape of American theatre, Machinal is a riveting look at how advances in the industrial age (not unlike the digital age) created an atmosphere virtually devoid of empathy and humanity trapping many women in a male-dominated oppressive wasteland. Showtimes Tuesday, February 27 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 28 6:30 p.m. (post-show discussion) Thursday, March 1 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 2 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 3 2:00 p.m.* and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 4 2:00 p.m. *The 2:00 p.m. performance of Machinal on March 3 will be open captioned for deaf and hard of hearing patrons.

There are 40 layers of wallpaper on the walls of an aging New York City tenement building. Forty layers plastered to the walls by the hundreds of immigrant families who called this building home. Each layer contains stories of everyday Italian, Jewish, and Irish immigrants surviving storms, building bridges, creating new policies, and shaping a new American identity. The steady walls of this aging building have been keeping these stories safe for over 100 years, but soon the building will be torn down. What will happen to these extraordinary stories of ordinary immigrants when the wrecking ball arrives? The building is determined to save the stories even if it can’t save itself. Brought to life with puppetry, mask, live action, and music.

Roots of 'The Dinner Party': History in the Making - Brooklyn Museum Through March 04, 2018 - Prospect Heights

Roots of "The Dinner Party": History in the Making is the first museum exhibition to examine Chicago's evolving plans for The Dinner Party in depth, detailing its development as a multilayered artwork, a triumph of community art-making, and a testament to the power of historical revisionism. Chicago's ambitious research project combatted the absence of women from mainstream historical narratives and blazed the trail for feminist art historical methodologies in an era of social change. It also validated mediums traditionally considered the domain of women and domestic labor, as the artist studied and experimented with China painting, porcelain, and needlework. The exhibition presents rarely seen test plates, research documents, ephemera, notebooks, and preparatory drawings from 1971 through 1979 alongside The Dinner Party, encouraging exploration of its formal, conceptual, and material progress.

Throughout time, artists have always been fascinated by light and it's expressiveness, but it's only in the last century that light itself has become a medium for art. Ephemeral, visceral, and abstract by nature, light possesses an incredible power to move us in ways that words and images cannot. In this two day workshop, we'll be exploring the tools and techniques available for sculpting immersive light environments. Each day will consist of teaching, examples, and hands on work, with a focus on building a solid foundation for creating one's own light art works. This class was commissioned to highlight our current Anthony McCall exhibition entitled Solid Lights Works. Price: $150 Audience: Open to all adults regardless of experience. Materials: TBA Doron Sadja is an American artist and electronic musician whose work explores modes of perception and the experience of sound, light, and space. "Difficult, powerful, intense and delicate – all at the same time" Sadja stages epic performance works that immerse the audience into a futuristic landscape of pure sound and light. At times bordering on painful, at other times like bathing in a sea of lush harmonies, Sadja melds pristine electronic tones with romantic synthesizers and dark noise to construct hyper-emotive sonic architecture. Although each of Sadja's works are striking in their singular and focused approach, his output is diverse: spanning everything from 25 speaker sound works to stroboscopic smoke and light shows, Immersive projection pieces, and custom built motorized speaker systems that can precisely track sound around a room. Sadja has performed and exhibited throughout Europe and the US, including Atonal Festival and Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, PS1 MoMa Museum in NYC, Norberg Festival in Sweden, and the Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics in Austria. Sadja has collaborated with Tony Conrad, Aki Onda, Audrey Chen, Nenad Popov, and Mario Diaz de Leon amongst others. Sadja currently lives in Berlin. Sold Out

The play is a tour-de-force for two black actresses. We enter the home of two centenarian sisters: Sadie Delaney, a retired teacher, age 103 and her kid sister, Bessie Delaney, a retired dentist, age 101. Like molasses and vinegar, these daughters of a former slave were always temperamental opposites, but together they grew up in the Jim Crow South, lived in Harlem during its renaissance and had professional careers. While making dinner to remember their father’s birthday, the two sisters tell us of the last century as they lived it – through stories of racial injustice and personal strife, unified by faith, family, and time.

New York City is home to some of the world's most renowned museums and now there's a new one coming to town. One that will appeal to tourists and locals alike, and anyone – groom, friend or family – who's participated in or witnessed the high-stakes, high-tension ritual of wedding planning. It's the Bridezillas Museum of Natural Hysteria, an expansive, free of charge, Instagram-worthy attraction opening Friday, February 23 at 4 Times Square, created by WE tv to mark the reboot and return of one of reality TV's pioneering series, "Bridezillas," which premieres on Friday March 2 at 10 pm ET/PT. "In its initial 10-year run, 'Bridezillas' was a phenomenon, cementing in popular culture, and Merriam-Webster's Dictionary, a lexicon for that life milestone that sometimes transforms mild-mannered women into unnaturally obsessive and intolerably demanding brides-to-be," said Marc Juris, President of WE tv. "WE tv viewers have been calling for us to bring back the series since we wrapped it up in 2013; and we're answering their call –, not only with new fresh and frantic episodes of their beloved show, but a full scale museum in the crossroads of the world – Times Square." WE tv's Bridezillas Museum of Natural Hysteria will be housed in a 3,000 sq. ft., street-level storefront at 4 Times Square. It is slated to include: • Bridezillas Throughout History – Gawk and awe at a gallery dedicated to the baddest B's in history, revealing how the oversized expectations and behaviors of famous brides like Adam's Eve, Nefertiti and Cleopatra set the template for generations of Bridezillas to come; • 'Zilla Did What? – Come face-to-face with articles and artifacts chronicling bad bridal behaviors that seem too outrageous to be true, but are -- from the hideous hairstyles, manicures and gowns imposed upon innocent bridesmaids, to the eyesore invitations and over-the-top wedding cakes, to news articles and social media chronicling when weddings end in brawls, lawsuits and other disasters; • Channel your Inner Bridezilla – Lose yourself in a host of immersive, interactive attractions designed to allow frantic brides and tourists alike to scream, punch and vogue like a true Bridezilla, including the Rage-O-Meter Punching Bag; a Scream Booth and Cray-Cray Cranial Head Massagers, ones guaranteed to chill out the most manic Bridezilla or NYC tourist. • Do it for the 'Gram – Remember and share your experiences by taking your own tacky bridal portrait at the Bridezillas Altar of Shame, while luxuriating in a bathtub of 'diamonds', being squashed under the massive sequined stiletto of a giant Bridezilla, and more. WE tv's Bridezillas Museum of Natural Hysteria will be open to the public daily from Friday, February 23 – Sunday, March 4. Hours: Daily 11 am – 8 pm. Admission is free. WE tv's "Bridezillas" famously spotlights so-called 'normal' women who have turned into "Bridezillas" by their upcoming nuptials. Each hour-long episode will follow two hilariously unhinged brides as they hurtle toward the altar. We meet the brides and their grooms, learn their backgrounds, relationship histories, and see how the wedding has taken over their lives. As we move closer to the brides' big day, tempers and tensions flare, the patience of loved ones is tested and monumental meltdowns become inevitable as our 'Bridezillas' are pushed to the edge – all in the name of planning the 'perfect' wedding. The original "Bridezillas" series ended its run in 2013 after 10 seasons and WE tv will now launch its tenth season of the hit spinoff series "Marriage Boot Camp," which premieres in March. "Bridezillas" is executive produced by Laura Halperin. Executive Producers for WE tv are Lauren P. Gellert, Kate Farrell and Angela Molloy.

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group—with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

Winter Term Torkwase Dyson and the Wynters-Well Drawing School for Environmental Justice - The Drawing Center Through March 09, 2018 - Soho

The Drawing Center is pleased to announce Winter Term, a new annual initiative in which the museum will partner with an artist or organization whose mission it is to explore the transformative role that drawing can play in civic and global society. The yearly program, which will consist of public events, classes, and performances as well as an exhibition, will build a community of people to investigate the efficacy of drawing as a tool for addressing inequity and encouraging social change. In a world ever more in need of human connection and compassion, Winter Term will ask how drawing, the most universal medium, might extend beyond the gallery space to provide concrete tools for collective engagement and collaboration. In this way, Winter Term provides a new model for exhibition making as well as for the role that art institutions can play in the real world. For the first session, which will take place in February and March of 2018, The Drawing Center has invited New York-based artist Torkwase Dyson to create an installation and organize a two-week series of classes, discussions, and formal experiments developed from her incipient project the Wynter-Wells Drawing School for Environmental Justice—named for Jamaican writer Sylvia Wynter and American Civil Rights leader Ida B. Wells. The School will present an experimental curriculum employing techniques culled from the visual arts as well as design theories of geography, infrastructure, engineering, and architecture to initiate dialogue about geographic genealogy in an era of global crisis due to human-induced climate change. Participation in the course will be by application with portions open to the public. During an open studio-style installation, Dyson will explicate her own formal concept of "Black Compositional Thought" while terms such as improvisation, nomadicity, and re-orientation will be applied to techniques within abstract drawing that confront issues of environmental justice and the path towards a more equitable future. Confirmed invited guests include architect Mabel Wilson, curator Rujeko Hockley, artist and designer Ekene Ijeoma, designer and educator Ronald Morrison, choreographer Dean Moss, and artist Zachery Fabri who will engage in a site-specific performance. Following the residency, the museum will release a publication with contributions from artists Dawoud Bey and Allison Janae Hamilton as well as poet Ronaldo Wilson among others. Organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator.

Our exhibit, Badges of Honor: Brooklyn's Protectors, highlighting the good work that is done by every day Brooklynites, brings together items from the Brooklyn Collection's photographs, prints and ephemera collection along with 21 on-loan badges belonging to Brooklyn native, Art Sinai. The exhibit contains badges that span a century (1850 – 1950) selected from a variety of neighborhoods as well as occupations such as beach patrol, sheriffs and firefighters. Art Sinai was raised in East New York, Crown Heights and Sheepshead Bay. After graduating from Brooklyn College in 1961, he started his law enforcement career as a treasury agent. In 1977 at the age of 38 he was appointed to the Treasury Department as a deputy assistant secretary. A year later, after being gifted a badge by a classmate, Mr. Sinai started his collection. This led to a lifelong passion for collection badges, which now includes up to 8,000 federal, state, city, local and railroad badges. It also includes the largest collection of historic humane law enforcement badges in the world. Having bought, sold and traded badges for over 50 years, some of the most thrilling finds are rare badges from Brooklyn. We're pleased to announce that Mr. Sinai is also donating a portion of his collection to the Brooklyn Collection. Everyone has the potential to be someone's hero. By featuring the good work done by Brooklyn's protectors, we aim to shine a light on the everyday members of our community, who in times of trouble take on the mantle.

Children's Shakespeare Theatre's 'Merchant of Venice' - The Bell-Ans Arts Center Through March 10, 2018 - Orangeburg

The Knaves of The Children's Shakespeare Theatre present The Merchant of Venice By William Shakespeare Directed by Diana Green Shakespeare’s anti-semitic play? Or a multi-layered exploration of racism and how outsiders are excluded? This play is technically a comedy as nobody dies and people get married, but the overarching themes are difficult to tackle and many directors shy away from the play as a result. The Knaves of CST under the direction of Artistic Director, Diana Green, determined that this was the right political climate for this provocative play and they will be on hand before and after each performance to discuss the issues that the play brings up and to hear audience feedback. Merchant will be performed in modern costume with modern music and even live music! It will be a colorful and controversial event. *The Children's Shakespeare Theatre (CST) is a local company that produces classical theater for children and families at venues in Rockland County, NY. “The Knaves” is the name of the younger division of CST with children aged 8-14, and “The Rogues” is the teen division comprised of high school kids. This production is the third offering in CST’s 19th season, “The Italian Season,” and it will be the first production to be performed in their new home-base at The Bell-Ans Arts Center in Orangeburg, NY. Playing at The Bell-Ans Arts Center, 103 S. Greenbush Rd, Building #5, Orangeburg, NY Performances on Friday, March 2 @ 7pm Saturday, March 3 @ 7pm Friday, March 9 @ 7pm Saturday, March 10 @ 7pm For tickets and more information: merchantvenicecst.brownpapertickets.com

FACTION's inaugural New York project celebrates the building of identity from a common heritage within a community engaging Harlem exhibition. FACTION Art Projects presents their inaugural exhibition, All That You Have Is Your Soul, a group show of 17 artists, all of whom are tied together by their responses to building identity within a foreign land. The exhibition uses the link of heritage between the artists to present artworks that celebrate difference in identity.

Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) remains among the most revered figures in classical music, due in large part to the dissemination of his work through hundreds of commercially produced recordings and wide-reaching radio broadcasts, which helped to define and perpetuate his cultural significance during the second half of his meteoric career. This exhibition explores the iconoclastic yet beloved conductor's legacy through the very medium in which he worked: sound. With a particular focus on his 17-year career with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound draws foremost upon the Toscanini Legacy collection of sound recordings, the single largest collection held by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The over 43,000 items represent the full array of audio formats in use during Toscanini's lifetime, including lacquer, shellac, and vinyl discs, tape reels, cylinders, and wire recordings as well as the more obscure selenophone recordings and the metal parts used in the production of 78 rpms discs. As one of the world's leading sound archives, the Library for the Performing Arts will place front and center Toscanini's recordings through ongoing live demonstrations and free public programs devoted to the craft of preserving and archiving the technology he helped define during his lifetime.

Stead, this charming puppetry performance about one creature of habit and his kind-hearted coterie will warm your heart and chase away the winter chills.

2017 Student Exhibition The photographers in fl?an strip away the skin of societal conformity and conventions that we succumb to in the realization of ourselves, revealing the sensitive flesh both of which we are and of those we love. This exhibition flays off the outer coverings that protect us from the dangers that self-identification, inner exploration, and outer vulnerability expose us to. Fl?an relies on codes and cues of society, class, culture, and ideology as a puzzle of pieces in the construction of their meaning. Images in this show explore the way place can invoke our susceptibility and how our bodies are our limitations. The skin, the very thing that protects us from the world we navigate, is stripped away. Through various explorations in materials and processes, these images address the most private parts of our beings, the relationships we carry through our lives, and the world in which we live. This exhibition showcases work by nine recent graduates of the International Center of Photography's Advanced Track Program. Students enrolled in ICP's Part-Time Programs participate in a series of unique seminars exploring ideas and materials and create comprehensive bodies of work. Graduates from these programs have continued on as working artists, attended prestigious graduate schools, and been awarded grants and scholarships, including a Fulbright Scholarship, along with many other recognitions of their work. This exhibition is curated by Ben Gest, Part-Time Programs coordinator, and Jean-Marie Casbarian, faculty. In memory of Harry Sandler, whose impact on each of us will not be forgotten.

Teknopolis is a three-week-long digital art installation experience in the Fisher building for ages 6+ designed to inspire creativity, connect with the future, and imagine new possibilities through interaction with technology. This is the first digital arts playground of its kind in Brooklyn-and the first time a BAM facility has been dedicated to an interactive, multi-space digital arts showcase for both youth and adult audiences. Algorithms ignite and formulas are felt in this stellar showcase of interactive technology. BAM’s first-ever tech takeover features three floors of innovative installation pieces that bridge the arts and digital media to inspire kids and parents alike. VIRTUAL ADVENTURE ROOM Curated by Future of Storytelling Take a virtual reality dive into fantasy forests, office cubicles, artist's studios, and two original VR films in this room full of immersive technology, where paintings come to 3D life and everyone's the hero of their own story.

The fascinating life of one of pop music's greatest performers and songwriters takes center stage in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. The show begins just before Brooklyn native Carol Klein composes her first hit song, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," in 1959 when she is 17, pregnant and newly married to 20-year-old lyricist Gerry Goffin. In the decade that follows, King and Goffin produce a string of classic hits while forming a lasting friendship with another composing couple, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. When Carole's personal life begins falling apart, she responds by stepping out of the shadows with Tapestry, a deeply personal collection of songs that becomes one of the best-selling albums of all time.

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked." With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place." The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you'll never forget.

MoMA PS1 presents the first comprehensive retrospective of Carolee Schneemann, spanning the artist's prolific six-decade career. As one of the most influential artists of the second part of the 20th century, Schneemann's pioneering investigations into subjectivity, the social construction of the female body, and the cultural biases of art history have had significant influence on subsequent generations of artists. Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting begins with rarely seen examples of the artist's early paintings of the 1950s and their evolution into assemblages made in the 1960s, which integrated objects, mechanical elements, and modes of deconstruction. In the late 1960s Schneemann began positioning her own body within her work, performing the roles of "both image and image-maker." As a central protagonist of the New York downtown avant-garde community, she explored hybrid artistic forms culminating in experimental theater events. The exhibition considers Schneemann's oeuvre within the context of painting by tracing the developments that led to her groundbreaking innovations in performance, film, and installation in the 1970s, as well as her increasingly spatialized multimedia installations from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.

MoMA PS1 will present the first solo museum exhibition in New York focused on Glasgow-based artist Cathy Wilkes (b. 1966), in conjunction with the inaugural Maria Lassnig Prize. Since the start of her career in the 1990s, Wilkes has created sculptural tableaux that engage with the rituals of life. Regularly employing quotidian products and residual materials drawn from her domestic life, Wilkes's installations connect the banalities of daily existence to larger archetypes of birth, marriage, child-rearing, and death. This combination of the personal and universal parallels a meditation at the heart of her work, in which Wilkes's art enacts an exercise in empathy, exposing deeply felt subjective experiences to reach beyond herself while also insisting upon the fundamentally private nature of artmaking. Wilkes is the first artist to receive the Maria Lassnig Prize, a biennial award established by the Maria Lassnig Foundation in June 2016 to honor the achievements of mid-career artists. The Maria Lassnig Prize was originally envisioned by pioneering Austrian artist Maria Lassnig before her death in 2014 at the age of 94, at height of her artistic powers. Having achieved recognition only later in life, she hoped to encourage the efforts of fellow career artists not yet familiar to the public. In 2014, MoMA PS1 presented Maria Lassnig's first comprehensive American museum survey to universal acclaim.

Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence - New York Historical Society Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence showcases hand-drawn and engraved maps from the 18th and early 19th centuries that illuminate the tremendous changes—geographic, political, and economic—that occurred before, during, and just after the Revolutionary War. The exhibition features rarely displayed manuscripts and printed maps from New-York Historical's own premier collection, including the original manuscript surveys of Robert Erskine, Geographer and Surveyor General of the Continental Army, and his successor Simeon De Witt. Also on display will be John Jay's personal copy of John Mitchell's Map of the British and French Dominions in North America (1755) to which hand-drawn red lines representing proposed boundaries were added during the negotiations of the Treaty of Paris, 1782 - 1783. This exhibition was organized by the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library as We Are One: Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence and curated at New-York Historical by Nina Nazionale, Director of Library Operations and Curator of Printed Collections. The book, Revolution: Mapping the Road to American Independence, 1755-1783, is available for purchase at the NYHistory Store. Lead support for We Are One provided by Mary Jo Otsea and Richard H. Brown. Additional support provided by the Berkley Family Foundation, Gerry Lenfest, the Sherry and Alan Leventhal Family Foundation, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel C. Butler, William B. Ginsberg, Ruth and Sid Lapidus, William S. Reese, Tom and Lee Touchton, and an anonymous donor.

Blessed Unrest presents Platonov, or A Play with No Name Translated and adapted by Laura Wickens from the play by Anton Chekhov Directed by Jessica Burr A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Sounds familiar? Blessed Unrest’s raw and sexy rendition of Platonov, or A Play with No Name, in new translation and adaptation by playwright Laura Wickens, shows how Chekhov, nearly 150 years ago in Russia, was piercing through the issues that are highly relevant in America today. Her adaptation does away with all the father figures – except for the protagonist – and relocates the story to the rural South, a milieu in which the antidote to boredom is an entangled web of salacious scandals. Sometimes endearing and often reproachable, the titular character emerges as a man whose shortcomings run rampant due to enablers who surround him. Cast: Irina Abraham Chigiryov, Ashley Hildreth, Javon Minter, Darrell Stokes, Becca Schneider, and Taylor Valentine. Dramaturgy: Jessi Blue Gormezano Costume design: Sarah Thea. February 17 – March 11, 2018 Performance schedule: Sat, Feb 17, 8:00pm Sun, Feb 18, 3:00pm Thu, Feb 22, 7:00pm Fri, Feb 23, 8:00 pm Sat, Feb 24, 8:00pm Sun, Feb 25, 3:00pm Mon, Feb 26, 7:00pm Fri, March 2, 8:00pm Sat, March 3, 8:00pm Sun, March 4, 3:00pm Mon, March 5, 7:00pm Thu, March 8, 7:00 pm Fri, March 9, 8:00pm Sat, March 10, 3:00pm and 8:00pm Sun, March 11, 3:00pm

ADMISSIONS is a new play that explodes the ideals and contradictions of liberal white America. Sherri Rosen-Mason (Jessica Hecht) is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body. And alongside her husband, the school's Headmaster, they've largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results.

2014. Ezra Wube (b. 1980, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, lives in Brooklyn). Animation. 1,756 frames, photographed from canvas with oil paint. 4 minutes. Ezra Wube works with video, installation, drawing, painting, and performance. Reflecting on his identity as a person of two cultures at the intersection of tradition and modern life, Wube makes work about the uncertainty of time and place and the malleability of memory. A Memory of Astoria, commissioned by the Museum of the Moving Image, is an impressionistic portrait of the blocks surrounding this building. Wube walked the neighborhood to observe the area's confluence of cultures, focusing on everyday moments, sights, and sounds. He reconstituted these experiences into a poetic visual collage, inserting himself as a silhouetted observer exploring the memories of his walks. The production of A Memory of Astoria was an intensive, months-long process, with each frame painted in sequence on top of the last. The result is striking: street scenes assemble and disassemble, leaving visible marks of the past as if time and space have melted together. Through these impressions, Wube reveals a diverse, rapidly changing neighborhood that the Museum has called home for more than 30 years.

Looking for a way to get to know Whitby School  better? Come for  coffee and good conversation  from January 10 through March 14.

212 Arts is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Paul Richard's work entitled "Negative Man". The exhibit marks the first occasion that Paul's vivid portraiture will be in dialogue with his street work. While his portraiture is elaborate and cerebral, his street art possesses a playful sense of spontaneity and quickness as he manages to capture the quintessential short-hand features of his subjects with nothing more than a dripped contour line of paint. Paul's sidewalk drips have been captivating New Yorkers for over 25 years and have endured with lasting popularity. The recognizability of his work is a testament to Richard's creativity in and out of the gallery and as such has earned him accolades in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Vogue, the Huffington Post, Architectural Digest, and Time Magazine. His collectors have come to include: Marc Jacobs, Beyonce, Jay-Z, John Varvatos, Justin Bieber, Elton John, Gerard Butler, and Christina Aguilera among many others. His work is also in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Art Boston and the Fisher-Landau Museum to name a few.

The recently coined "Afrofuturism" genre is referred to by The New York Times as "...a political and cultural genre that projects black space voyagers, warriors and their heroic like into a fantasy landscape, one that has long been the province of their mostly white counterparts." At its core, Afrofuturism is about reimagining what the African American experience was and what it could be, and the show is designed to inspire both contemporaries and young people of color to tell outside-of-the-box-stories like Brobot Johnson.

In this musical advenure, the villains of the storybook community learn they have to put their differences aside and team up to save the day.

Each immigrant story is a combination of determination, hope, and challenges. It is more important than ever to share our stories; our stories as immigrants, our stories as women, stories through which we can understand better, and celebrate, the diversity and commonality of human experience.

The exhibit features art and fashion photographs of 16 young immigrant women in iconic NYC spots and neighborhoods, together with audio recordings of their stories and video montages. It shows a nuanced and multi-layered picture of the immigrant women who make NYC their home, of the barriers and isolation they experience, and of the hopes, dreams, and talents they bring with them.

The exhibit seeks to reduce misconceptions and prejudice about the faces and voices of immigrant women, and aspires to raise public awareness and create positive dialogue about immigrants, and about women.

It is also important, in the current political climate and times in the United States, to give a platform for immigrant women to share their perspective, as immigrants, and as women, about their future in the United States, and the future of the country itself.

The imagery in Tom Leaver's paintings is entirely imaginary. The paintings are recognizable as landscapes, but they do not depict any specific place the artist has seen nor are they based on photographs of any topography or locale. Instead, the artist chooses landscape imagery as a vehicle to express emotional, psychological and spiritual states of mind. Leaver creates his paintings using his gloved hands, applying the oil paint in sweeps of his palm or the side of his hand, or in fingertip daubs. The only brush he uses is for the application of turpentine, and a rag is employed to pull the solvent through the paint or wipe it away. Overall, there is sfumato-like softness in the paint application, a change from the more defined and energetic mark-making of his previous body of work. There has also been a subtle and intuitive shift toward a subdued palette of varying brown and gold tonalities, offset by lighter passages in the sky above or bodies of water below. The gentle and atmospheric space Leaver produces in these new paintings is deep, mysterious, and seemingly endless. Leaver cites as influences Chinese landscape painting, which is suggestive rather than literal, and Japanese enso painting, comprised of lone circular forms, often with no defined starting point. He notes that his own paintings always indicate a passage, also without a clear beginning or ending. Turner's later works, with their unresolved quality (but not their strong color) are also influential. However, Leaver's spiritual practice informs his work most fully, in the way the paintings are an expression of being present-minded in the action of creation. He notes, "I was never taught linear perspective, color theory, form and shadow, or even how to mix paints. My teacher would say, just paint. When I began practicing yoga I was told to just practice, all was coming. I started sitting zazen several years ago and my instruction was to just sit and watch my breath. The three practices have become one daily ritual, feeding into and off of each other. This latest body of work is a contin

Set during the record hot summers of 2004 and 2012, the play pits a scientist named John Bjornson against his twin sister, Jeanne, in a no-holds barred struggle over land ownership and the future use of their family's wilderness estate. "Extreme Weather" was developed by theater three collaborative, in a series of readings and workshops at the Cherry Lane Theater. The producers feel that, as opposed to 2014, when climate change was more theoretically foreseen, "Extreme Weather" is now a play whose time has come. "The play is no longer bringing the news," says playwright Malpede, "it is only reflecting it."

Views of Rome and Naples: Oil Sketches from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum Through March 18, 2018 - New York

During the second half of the eighteenth-century, a journey to Italy was considered an essential component in the education of young artists and noblemen from Northern Europe. Although Venice and Florence were requisite stops on the journey, artists tended to make their longest stay in Rome, and they generally also spent time in Naples. Both cities offered celebrated archeological sites and a taste of the unspoiled rural life of the campagna. Working outdoors, artists recorded their observations of these natural and man-made wonders in small-scale studies, mostly executed with oil paint on paper. In these oils, painters captured the grandiosity of Rome's classical ruins and the sublime natural beauty of Naples, with its famous view of Mount Vesuvius. Artists from France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are featured in this selection. Views of Rome and Naples is the fifth exhibition in a series drawn from the collection of oil sketches acquired by Morgan Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Mr. Thaw is also an honorary trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This gorgeous new biopic tells the true story of Henry Bates, who risked his life in the perilous Amazon in the 1850s and discovered the “beautiful proof” that supported Darwin’s groundbreaking theories of evolution and natural selection. The film re-creates Bates' 11 challenging years in the Amazon rain forest as he searches for clues about how and why species – butterflies in particular – change and adapt over time to avoid predators. In the spectacular IMAX format, the lush jungle is as beautiful as the monkeys, birds, insects and one troublesome jaguar.Variety magazine said: “While nearly all made-for-IMAX educational movies boast breathtaking visuals, this one matches its imagery with an equally memorable story.”  View the trailer at http://skfilms.ca/productions/amazon-adventure-3d/

Friends William and Betsy haven't seen each other since high school. They've both followed their dreams, but something is missing: his all-consuming job at NASA doesn't leave time for a family, and she can't bear another unsuccessful round of IVF with her partner Shoshana. When Betsy texts William out the blue and asks him to be her sperm donor, both friends are forced to make decisions that will shape the rest of their lives. Directed by Jade King Carroll, this new comedy by Don Nguyen explores a different sort of coming of age - when dreams give way to plans, and idealism becomes realism.

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards, Nunsense features star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon.

Playwright Sarah Burgess (Dry Powder) and Tony-winning director Thomas Kail (Hamilton, Tiny Beautiful Things, Dry Powder) team up again for KINGS, a hilariously blistering new play about money, politics and the state of the American republic. Kate is a whip-smart lobbyist who doesn't waste her time on anyone who can't get elected, stay elected and help her clients get what they want. Kate thinks Representative Sydney Millsap is a political neophyte whose staunch ideals are going to cost her a burgeoning political career. But Representative Millsap and her high-minded principles turn out to be more resilient than Washington was expecting, and for the first time Kate is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in? KINGS is a scathingly funny new play about the people at the heart of our democracy.

Hotbed explores the vibrant political and artistic scene of Greenwich Village in the early 20th century, where men and women joined forces across the boundaries of class and race to fight for a better world.

Immersive installations and more than 100 artifacts and images—drawn from New-York Historical's archives and several private collections—bring to life the bohemian scene and its energetic activist spirit. The exhibition is curated by Joanna Scutts, Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Women's History, and Sarah Gordon, Senior Postdoctoral Marie Zimmermann Legacy Fellow in Women's History, under the direction of Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History at the New-York Historical Society, and is on view in the Joyce B.

FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures - Museum of Chinese in America Through March 25, 2018 - Manhattan

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese passengers that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA's collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. For most of these sculptures, their forms are Chinese folk art, but their subject matter is uniquely American. Idiomatic expressions and art-related theories of the "fold" as a form, action and metaphor will be used as an organizing principle for the exhibition's content and design. In addition to archive materials, recent interviews with immigration attorneys and supporters of the Golden Venture detainees will also provide multiple perspectives on the attainment of the American Dream.

Cathode Love is a book and companion LP featuring carefully curated writings and musical content focused around a central, celebratory impulse of suggestive, decadent, and symbolically-charged works in film, theory, visual art, poetry, fiction and essays, all tapping on the door of a new, synaesthetic sensibility. Cathode Love is wishing to move us toward a new aesthetic culture, one that resides "away from the mundane reality" (and certainly from banal art). An irregular almanac of irregular pleasures, an untimely messenger, a hope for catching a glimpse of light in the mirror of impossible beauty across shattered art-forms...Cathode Love, in its book/LP form, is published in the spirit of an aesthetic treatise of sorts. An exploratory document, and finally an accidental anthology of suggestions to run with. From the fiery intensity of Antonin Artaud's language of theater to the passionate elevation of sleaze to academic loftiness in Stephen Thrower's writings, this strange new collection of wild flowers if a trip to the jungle, not the zoo. Nothing is caged, all is free. And that is it's beauty. Cathode Love is, at the very least, a new window to actively "dream into" regarding expression and interpretation. From simply seeing "bad" films in a new light to high-minded semiotic theory, to spiritually profound synaesthetic experiences of art, it presents a case on its own accord. It simply is a vantage point, and needs to be observed. From the films of the language-shattering "fantastique" tradition, all the way to mystical essays on semiotics by Michel Leiris, Cathode Love is the framework of the mirror we can dream into.

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal - Grey Art Gallery Through March 31, 2018 - New York

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal is the first U.S. museum exhibition to present the extraordinary drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Spain, 1852–1934), the father of modern neuroscience. Cajal's astonishing depictions of the brain—which combine cutting-edge scientific knowledge with consummate draftsmanship—offer much greater clarity than photographs, so much so that they are still in wide use today.Featuring approximately 80 of Cajal's drawings, the show will situate them within the history of scientific illustration from the 16th to 19th centuries, and juxtapose them with contemporary visualizations of the brain. Organized by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota in collaboration with the Cajal Institute, the exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated book published by Abrams.

Baya: Woman of Algiers is the first North American exhibition of works by the self-taught Algerian artist Baya Mahieddine (1931–1998). Known as Baya, she was born in Bordj el-Kiffan and orphaned at age five. Encouraged by her adoptive French mother to pursue art, she began as an adolescent to paint gouaches and make ceramics. Her work was soon discovered by fabled gallerist Aimé Maeght who, along with André Breton, organized an exhibition in Paris in 1947. Baya's colorful depictions of women, rhythmic patterns, and bright palette drew the attention of Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, with whom she later collaborated in the renowned Madoura pottery studio in Vallauris. Celebrated in both Algeria and France, Baya has yet to gain international recognition.

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through April 01, 2018 - New York

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public's imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 is the first major exhibition to fully examine the scene-changing, interdisciplinary life of this seminal downtown New York alternative space. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57's founding curatorial staff—film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully, exhibition organizer Keith Haring, and performance curator Ann Magnuson—to examine how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of interdisciplinary endeavor. Responding to the broad range of programming at Club 57, the exhibition will present their accomplishments across a range of disciplines—from film, video, performance, and theater to photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, zines, fashion design, and curating. Building on extensive research and oral history, the exhibition features many works that have not been exhibited publicly since the 1980s.

Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice. Station Four: “Jesus Meets His Mother” - The Cathedral of St. John the Divine Through April 01, 2018 - New York

Creating a powerful link between Christianity and Islam, artist Dua Abbas will present her work “Jesus Meets His Mother” at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, part of the “Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice.” exhibition taking place across Manhattan. This public art project explores the journey of Jesus to his crucifixion and resurrection and presents a pilgrimage comprised of 14 “art stations” located across Manhattan. Station Four, “Jesus Meets His Mother,” created by Pakistan-based artist Dua Abbas, will be on view at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan, from February 14 – April 1, 2018. The “Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice.” exhibition, curated by Dr. Aaron Rosen, Professor of Religious Thought at Rocky Mountain College and Visiting Professor at King’s College London, has traveled across the world raising awareness for those in need of refuge. It was first on view in London in 2016, with art stations at institutions including the National Gallery, the Tower of London, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. In 2017, the exhibition was shown in Washington, D.C., with stations located at the National Cathedral, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and adjacent to the Supreme Court.

From Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park, The Pain and the Itch) comes an epic play, featuring sixteen actors in fifty roles, examining the basic beliefs upon which we've built our economy and our country. Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America's first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another's loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. Four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winner Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Dogeaters) directs this richly imaginative, riotously funny new play about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity.

A Chorus Line, the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize and nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, is one of the true masterpieces of live theater. A celebration and true-to-life depiction of performers and their struggle to achieve greatness on the Broadway stage.  Its powerful stories are touching, funny, inspiring and relatable to anyone with a passion for performing.  The show is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama. Memorable musical numbers include "I Can Do That", "At the Ballet", "Dance: Ten; Looks: Three", "The Music and the Mirror", "What I Did for Love", "One (Singular Sensation)" and "I Hope I Get It."

SculptureCenter is pleased to announce Another Echo, an exhibition presented through In Practice, SculptureCenter's open call commissioning program for emerging artists. Exemplifying the spirit of SculptureCenter's mission, In Practice provides new ways to discover the most innovative artwork, foster experimentation, and give participants the opportunity to develop and present new work. The exhibition features newly commissioned works by: Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau, Nobutaka Aozaki, Cudelice Brazelton, Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall, Carey Denniston, Jules Gimbrone, Baseera Khan, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Courtney McClellan, Jon Wang, Carmen Winant, and Lachell Workman and is curated by Allie Tepper, SculptureCenter's 2018 Curatorial Fellow. An echo suggests an interaction and a return: an emanation which hits a surface and reverberates as instantaneous memory — a powerful tool for envisioning and rewriting history in the present. The word "another" itself suggests recurrence, but with difference. In Practice: Another Echo brings together the work of twelve artists and artist teams engaged in reshaping experiences and forms of public space. Often responding to imposed sociopolitical conditions, the artists in this exhibition project voice and language, and make use of responsive and vernacular materials. Rather than glance at the past with nostalgia, these artists share a preoccupation with the present moment: obscuring, adapting, and subverting surrounding signs and physical structures in order to witness, reinvent, and survive the often agitated terrain of contemporary life. Across their work, which encompasses sculpture, live sound, video, and drawing, questions persist about how the self, in the midst of deep inner-processing, can converse with the present. How do we, in an ailing and unaccommodating society, extend ourselves out into the world, particularly when what we need so often is sanctuary? Throughout the exhibition, symbols appear marked on walls, imprinted and pasted as if in the caves of Lascaux, or the walls of prisons where inmates inscribed their opposition to power. Cudelice Brazelton wields a heat gun with the grace of a barber, burning fade designs—an ancient vernacular carried on bodies across history—into the architecture of the building. Nobutaka Aozaki also collects a visual vernacular, in his case the graffiti tags made on USPS label 228 stickers that he has found stuck onto surfaces throughout New York City. Other artists' practices involve reading body language made in response to conditions of imposition. Juliana Cerqueira Leite looks to the media, in particular the gestures of reporters and civilians sharing their experiences of humanitarian crises, focusing on moments when the body attempts to reenact the experience of an event that is beyond their agency, which she echoes through the movements of her body in clay. Carmen Winant amasses instructional images of women engaged in self-defense from a large archive that she began, subconsciously, during the 2016 presidential election campaign. Revisionist encounters with existing monuments concern artists such as Baseera Khan, who addresses a Richard Serra sculpture installed outside the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, TX, from under an "acoustic sound blanket." Khan—a queer femme Muslim-American disinherited from Serra's lineage—presents footage of the event in a Karaoke Spiritual Center of Love, set to music chosen according to a protective "logic of armor," by artists such as Rihanna, Bibi Bourelly, and Kevin Abstract. Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall's installation considers the current plight of American immigration, by revisiting the paths that Blacks and early twentieth century Bengali sailors took to the United States, through the holds of slave ships and steamship boiler rooms. "The New Colossus"—the sonnet by Emma Lazarus engraved on the Statue of Liberty base—echoes through the installation: translated into Yoruba and Bengali, and set to traditional music by the artists' collaborators Moses Mabayoje and Monjula Datta. Lachell Workman and Courtney McClellan both cast a quiet, haunting eye on the iterative cycles of injustice that occur though the criminal justice system. Workman's abstract sculptural installation references the vernacular of the street-side memorial and RIP T-shirt, confronting us with a vision of human and environmental neglect, while a nearby slide projector casts a spotlight on the wall, the incessant churn of the slides, counting. Courtney McClellan exhibits a new video that examines the insidious relationship between performance and the law, through her ongoing study of the American Mock Trial Association, and the team at the University of Georgia where she teaches. Witnessing life-forms in moments of transition and growth preoccupies several of the artists in the exhibition. Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau assemble a series of leather totems—"muted bodies" that push against their surroundings with quiet, expressive force, and look to nature's slowest processes, the growth of fungus, and foreground touch and duration as reparative, rather than reactionary modes for weathering a long, slow process of healing. Jules Gimbrone creates work that asserts the presence of the flexible, nuanced body, in particular the sounding of queer subjects that are regularly silenced in the public sphere, through an ecology of transmorphic, responsive materials and audio. Jon Wang presents an immersive, live video and sound environment that meditates on the metamorphic lifecycle of silkworms, inviting viewers into the artist's intimate pursuit of queer architecture, psychosexual resistance, and radical transformation. Carey Denniston presents videos edited from an ongoing FaceTime dialogue with Avery, her thirteen-year-old niece and a digital native living in Eastern Washington. The videos are portraits of "a space of processing" that moves through seemingly banal, but honest, conversations about friendship, to Avery's digestion of current events. The In Practice program offers emerging artists curatorial and financial support to create new work for exhibition at SculptureCenter. Artists are selected through a multi-stage process after submitting work through an open call. Past In Practice participants include: Korakrit Arunanondchai, Fia Backström, A. K. Burns, Michael DeLucia, Aleksandra Domanovic, Essex Olivares, Brendan Fernandes, Samara Golden, Ryan Johnson, Joanna Malinowska, Justin Matherly, Virginia Overton, Rachel Rose, Xaviera Simmons.

New York City-based artist Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. Rodriguez' solo exhibition at SculptureCenter features a newly commissioned video work titled The Maid, 2018, as well as additional newly produced video and photographic work. The Maid follows a selection of American artist Sherrie Levine's Newborn sculptures throughout the course of a day in various residences, private and institutional, from New York to Los Angeles. Levine made the works in crystal and black cast glass in the early 1990s, molding them after Constantin Brancusi's marble and bronze sculptures of the same name from 1915 and 1920. By featuring not only Levine's sculptures, already appropriations of another artist's work, but also capturing their contemporary environments, Rodriguez engages the conditions and settings in which art circulates, proposing that the futures of artworks are inherently speculative. Taking its title from a 1913 short story by Robert Walser about a devoted maid searching for a lost child who has been put under her care, the film similarly follows its subject toward a resolution that is more cyclical than gratifying. After searching around the world for the child for over twenty years, the maid in Walser's story finally finds her in Paris—and immediately dies from joy. The enigmatic story becomes a parable that frames the exhibition, as it tackles the complexity of care-based relationships forged through time, and follows Rodriguez' ongoing artistic exploration of subjecthood. Another new work, The Girls, 1997-2018, revisits hours of Hi8 video footage captured in a Chinatown park in the 1990s, when Rodriguez moved to the neighborhood as an artist in her twenties. Catching the eye of several young girls playing outside, Rodriguez trains her lens on them for an extended duration. The Girls crystalizes the proto-digital era the artist was working in and casts the children—now young adults—as unwitting protagonists who mark the passage of time. The video further captures a moment in a neighborhood that has since undergone radical transformation by developers and real- estate markets, as well as a generation that was on the cusp of new technologies that would make the visual documentation of everyday life an integral aspect of living. In addition, Rodriguez has produced a series of silver gelatin prints, All the Best Memories are Hers, 2018, which serve as "portraits" of embryos taken with an EmbryoScope. The resulting images are created from a hybrid of digital and analogue techniques. Whether used for assisted reproduction or stem-cell research, the embryo holds a legally fraught status between "person" and "property"as its regenerative potential is increasingly advanced by biotech industries. Together, the works speak to notions of time: suspended, potential, and actualized. By placing technologically mediated biological time alongside the proposed eternal life of the art object, Rodriguez finds momentary intersections in the disparate qualities and conditions of human and non-human "life," renewing meaning in both. Engaging the discourse of sculpture through the tools of cinema, The Maid follows the lives of 'related' artworks and recounts the conditional relationships between artist, artwork, and third-party agents (institution, caregiver, surrogate) in familial terms. Through this work, Rodriguez investigates how techniques of modern reproduction—both artistic and biological—are organized around property and kinship structures that are mediated through technology and the law. Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid is the artist's first solo museum exhibition in New York City. The exhibition is curated by Ruba Katrib and is accompanied by a color publication with essays by Katrib and Leah Pires. The exhibition will travel to MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge in spring 2018. Carissa Rodriguez (born 1970 in New York City; lives and works in New York City) has exhibited in New York and internationally since the mid-1990s. Recent solo exhibitions include the CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco (2016); Front Desk Apparatus, New York (2013); and Karma International, Zurich (2012). Recent major group exhibitions include MEDUSA, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2017); Finesse, Wallach Art Gallery, New York (2016); the Whitney Biennial, New York (2014); Theater Objects, LUMA Westbau, Zurich (2014); Pro-Choice, Fri Art, Fribourg, Switzerland (2013); ProBio, MoMA PS1, New York (2013); White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart, ICA Philadelphia (2013); and Demanding Supplies, Kunstraum Lüneburg (2011). Early in her career, Rodriguez exhibited at American Fine Arts, Co., New York (1999 and 1996), and between 1999 and 2004, her project The Stand in collaboration with Jodi Busby traveled to several institutions internationally. Rodriguez received a BA from Eugene Lang College at the New School, New York in 1994, and attended the Whitney Independent Study Program in 2001. She was a core member of Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York from 2004 to 2015. In 2013 Rodriguez was included in Better Homes at SculptureCenter, New York, curated by Ruba Katrib.

Yto Barrada & Julie Klear Once upon a Forest, the Animal Spring - FIAF & Le Skyroom Through April 06, 2018 - New York

In an imaginative new visual art exhibition, French-Moroccan multimedia artist Yto Barrada and American designer and art educator Julie Klear invite kids to create new worlds using colorful art pieces, to transform the FIAF Gallery into a moveable visual feast. Turning buildings into forests, or cities into flowers, kids are encouraged to play, hide, and interact with the animals and landscapes, while changing things up through words, languages, and sounds. By moving pieces around and creating original artwork, the kids will have a unique opportunity to work together and use the power of art and words to change the world! Animal Spring was originally created as an artful card game in four languages—English, French, Arabic, and Dutch, by the Wiels Museum in Brussels.

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist presents works by this German Jewish artist, who lived through the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and into the postwar years. After studying with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Berlin, Fritz Ascher (1893–1970) traveled to Oslo, where he met Edvard Munch, and Munich, where he associated with the artists of the Blue Rider and Simplicissimus groups. His early work is steeped in old myths, spirituality, and reflections on the human condition. From 1933 he was forbidden to produce, exhibit, or sell his art. Briefly interned at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in 1938, he survived the Nazi era mostly in hiding, writing poetry. After 1945 he returned to painting, expressing his inner turmoil in colorful, mystical landscapes devoid of human figures. The exhibition comprises 75 paintings and works on paper, ranging from Ascher's early academic studies to his final landscapes. Fritz Ascher: Expressionist is organized by the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art, Inc., and accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crown America - The Museum of Arts and Design Through April 08, 2018 - Columbus Circle

The Negro Motorist Green Book, commonly known as The Green Book, was a travel guide that helped black road-trippers avoid the dangers, injustices, and racial violence of segregation during the Jim Crow era in America. It was published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, and listed establishments such as hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, nightclubs, bars, gas stations, and more, where black travelers would be welcome. In an age of sundown towns, segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement, The Green Book became an indispensable tool for safe navigation.

Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crow America explores the history of The Green Book in an interactive project space through materials such as a library and reading area devoted to the topics of segregation, automobility, travel, and leisure, specifically as they relate to the black American experience in the midcentury; digitized copies of The Green Book; interactive maps that explore travel destinations included in it; and multiple film excerpts from upcoming documentary projects. It will also include two banners by Cauleen Smith, featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design, and two sculptures exploring locations in Harlem and D.C. from William D. Williams’s 2012 Dresser Truck Project.

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 6–8PM Artist Talk: Saturday, March 24, 2:30PM Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by John Torreano. Torreano is widely known for his colorful paintings on flat or molded plywood panels which incorporate acrylic gemstones set into painted and routered surfaces. Torreano's practice pulls heavily from the cosmic compositions of stellar imagery; constellations and nebulae serving as both inspiration and confirmation of his paintings. The exhibitions' title, Dark Matters Without Time, takes this reference further, building on the relationship dark matter has as an unseen yet binding force in the universe and the parallel references in Torreano's abstraction of undefined space as being enigmatic yet universal. The paintings are created on a human scale. They envelop the viewer, drawing the gaze in and past the brush marks and routered shapes—which reference proto planets and dense gaseous clouds within nebulae—into the vast expanse of the works. Torreano's brushwork also conjures an impressionist sensibility reminiscent of Cezanne or Monet with its energetic and gestural strokes. Torreano has exhibited his works extensively since the late 1960s including at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Lesley Heller Gallery will be showcasing pieces from several bodies of work including new paintings influenced in part by the artists' time spent in Abu Dhabi—where he has been professor at NYU's Abu Dhabi campus for the past 7 years—as well as select pieces from his Gem Stones and Columns Series. Also on view will be a small selection of cast bronze gems. This will be the artist's first commercial solo show in New York in six years.

Storytime with Rabbi Mo features storytelling, singing, interactive activities, and nosh. Sign up in advance.

Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 08, 2018 -

Drawn primarily from MoMA's collection, Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989 brings artworks produced using computers and computational thinking together with notable examples of computer and component design. The exhibition reveals how artists, architects, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technology deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic production. The artists featured in Thinking Machines exploited the potential of emerging technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with institutions and corporations that provided access to cutting-edge machines. They channeled the promise of computing into kinetic sculpture, plotter drawing, computer animation, and video installation. Photographers and architects likewise recognized these technologies' capacity to reconfigure human communities and the built environment. Thinking Machines includes works by John Cage and Lejaren Hiller, Waldemar Cordeiro, Charles Csuri, Richard Hamilton, Alison Knowles, Beryl Korot, Vera Molnár, Cedric Price, and Stan VanDerBeek, alongside computers designed by Tamiko Thiel and others at Thinking Machines Corporation, IBM, Olivetti, and Apple Computer. The exhibition combines artworks, design objects, and architectural proposals to trace how computers transformed aesthetics and hierarchies, revealing how these thinking machines reshaped art making, working life, and social connections.

Founded in 1967, the National Chorale is the only professional choral company in the United States to have established and maintained an annual subscription season in the major New York City concert halls - 50 seasons in David Geffen Hall, with additional concerts at Carnegie Hall. It presents a broad repertory of choral-orchestral works; seldom-performed works from many stylistic periods; opera-in-concert; American music theatre; and contemporary works, including commissions by the Chorale for its Lincoln Center Season. In addition to its David Geffen Hall series, the Chorale has toured nationally; presented 19 summer seasons of New York Festival of American Music Theater concerts in Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park and parks throughout the New York area; concert tours of New York State and New York City; vocal-instrumental chamber music series, and Concerts for Young People. The National Chorale is a leader in the development of choral singing in the New York City area. The New York Times calls the National Chorale "one of the most firmly established professional choral groups in the country." For 50 years, the Chorale has also presented vocal music education programs for NYC public schools, developing singing participation and future audiences for choral and vocal music. National Chorale's contracts with the NYC Department of Education provide year-long artist-in-residence programs for elementary, middle and high schools throughout the city. The Chorale regularly tours New York area schools, presenting concerts and choral workshops; and will present the popular 25th annual New York City High School Choral Festival, the 8th annual Elementary School Choral Festival and 5th annual Middle School Choral Festival in April and May 2018, with 36 participating high school, elementary and middle school choirs and more than 2,700 student singers from all five Boroughs of the City. The Chorale also has a major Partnership with the NYC Professional Performing Arts High School in Manhattan, now in its 8th year, where a team of Chorale artist/teachers lead and develop the PPAS Vocal/Choral Program daily throughout the school year. The PPAS Choir will perform at Lincoln Center at each National Chorale performance during the 2017-2018 Season. Everett McCorvey is in his fourth season as the Artistic Director of the National Chorale. Vocal Excellence is a hallmark of Dr. McCorvey's work with professional choirs and with professional singers in concerts, masterclasses and workshops throughout the world. Over a span of over 35 years, Dr. McCorvey has engaged choirs and audiences on 4 continents in moving and dynamic experiences with his unique and committed interpretation of choral music of all genres. Dr. McCorvey is also the founder and Music Director of the American Spiritual Ensemble, a group of 24 professional singers performing spirituals and other compositions of African-American composers. He is a frequent advisory panelist and on-site reviewer for the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, D.C. and he has served on the Boards of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, National Opera Association and the Kentucky Arts Council. Dr. McCorvey has recently been invited to serve as a jurist on the Opera For All Voices initiative established by San Francisco Opera and Santa Fe Opera. The panel will review new operatic works for the industry with the goal of bringing new audiences to opera. On working with the National Chorale, Dr. McCorvey said "Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of great choral singing with the National Chorale is indeed an honor and a privilege. It is my fervent hope that we can continue to sing, share and experience the goodness of humanity through music and learn of each other better through sharing in the arts."

Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in Japanese - The Met Fifth Avenue Through April 12, 2018 - New York

The tour introduces visitors to the origins of Impressionism in the late 1860s and its flourishing in the following decades in landscapes and scenes from modern life by such artists as Monet, Degas, and Renoir. The tour also explores the impact of Impressionism on the next generation of artists, which includes Cézanne, Gauguin, and Van Gogh.

The Off-Broadway hit The Bench starring Robert Galinsky, directed by Jay O. Sanders, will extend its sold out run at The East Village Playhouse. This production is being presented by Golden Globe Nominated Chris Noth, Drama Desk, Obie, Olivier Award winner Barry Shabaka Henley and produced by Tony Award winning producer Terry Schnuck. Based on true stories, The Bench, set in urban decay and rubble, explores the emotional heartbreak of five homeless characters and the catastrophic hysteria surrounding AIDs in the 1980s. The sparse set is accented with hand-drawn imagery, from Daphne Arthur’s graphic novel adaptation of the play, and audio design is by world re-known composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh. It’s a unique and fresh solo theatre piece wherein one actor plays five characters, written in dialogue form, not traditional ‘monologue black out, monologue black out’ traditional solo theatre form.

Karl Szilagi creates visual puzzles that use black and white geometric patterns to create figurative images. His art explores how we perceive patterns as both flat and three-dimensional at the same time. Most of the pieces are reverse mirror images – they appear the same when rotated 180 degrees.

A simple policeman looks into his heart and turns himself into a wide-eyed folk hero. A hungry trickster makes a hearty meal of a stone and a song. A poignant tale is told of a solitary man washed up by the sea on the faraway coast of Donegal. This is the stuff of which great drama can be wrought. A one-act play can achieve a kind of greatness. If that one-act play is written by John Millington Synge, Lady Gregory, or William Butler Yeats, surely it has a head start in that direction. With their romantic views of the past, and their wondrous sets of laws and techniques, these three plays, lovingly presented, full of politics, wild humor, unique displays of language, and finally, deep tragedy, come as close as can be to masterworks.

This outdoor exhibit features a luminous white carpet of LED lights across Madison Square Park’s central Oval Lawn. Bring the family at nightfall to see hundreds of transparent white spheres suspended from a square grid of steel poles and cabling, as they gently sway with the wind currents.

Conflating narrative tropes and methods from television sitcoms, theater, science fiction, mythology, and anthropology, Mellors writes the scripts for each of his projects, which he also directs, edits, and produces. His raucous films feature a book-eating creature named "The Object" who literally digests a family's library in Ourhouse (2010–ongoing); a Neanderthal in perpetual free-fall over the San Joaquin Valley in Neanderthal Container, (2014); and two messianic beings, in the form of a cardboard box and a giant egg, who attempt to make sense of a culture that they created millions of years prior in The Aalto Natives (2017, in collaboration with Erkka Nissinen, originally conceived for the Finnish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale). For his exhibition at the New Museum, Mellors will create a new environment including video projection and animatronic sculpture. "Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks" is curated by Margot Norton, Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historically worked and exhibited. Nathaniel Mellors was born in 1974 in Doncaster, UK, and lives and works in Los Angeles and Amsterdam. Solo exhibitions include the Box, Los Angeles (2016); Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw (2014); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2014); Galway Arts Centre, Ireland (2013); Baltimore Museum of Art (2013); Malmö Konsthall, Sweden (2012); Cobra Museum, Amstelveen, Netherlands (2011); and Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2011). Mellors has also been featured in group exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Roskilde, Denmark (2016); the Taipei Biennial, Taiwan (2014); Manifesta Foundation, Amsterdam (2014); National Gallery of the Arts, Tirana (2014); National Centre for Contemporary Arts, Moscow (2013); Kunsthalle Krems, Austria (2013); the Slaughterhouse, Plymouth, UK (2011); Center for Contemporary Art Glasgow (2011); the Hayward Gallery, London (2011); the 54th Venice Biennale (2011); and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy (2011).

Her new project for the New Museum takes the form of an ongoing action with live performers and one holographic performer. The project approaches the concept of presence in an expanded sense, focusing in particular on its increasing dispersion. In Pirici's ongoing action—conceived especially for the New Museum's South Galleries—presence is revealed in a variety of ways: as physical body as well as artificial stand-in, avatar, and ghost, taking on the character of a memorial or monument; as image and abstraction of the living subject into quantifiable, monetizable data; and as the expanded life of "dead" objects in museum collections—using the presence of live performers to challenge their stable state and static interpretation. This new work continues Pirici's recent interrogations into the collective body through choreographies that link different temporal and spatial events in real time. In the work, performers embody amalgamated parts, intersecting with each other yet separately manipulable. Pirici's project attempts to enact the dispersion of presence and to comment on contemporary processes of abstraction that separate sign from substance and image from material support. Proposing a distributed occupation of space and time, the work functions as one monstrous, modular organism made of living and digital matter. The exhibition is curated by Helga Christoffersen, Assistant Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historically worked and exhibited. Alexandra Pirici was born in 1982 in Bucharest, Romania, where she lives and works. Her work has recently been presented at n.b.k, Berlin (2017); Skulptur Projekte Münster (2017); the Berlin Biennial (2016); Tate Modern, London, and Tate Liverpool (2016); OFF-Biennale Budapest (2015); the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2015); Manifesta 10, St. Petersburg (2014); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2014); and Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2014).

Eric Michelson (the instructor) is a working artist in NYC with over 30 years experience teaching in various schools including the Art Students League, National Academy of Design and the 92nd Street Y. His paintings are in many private collections. The class will focus on the practical skills needed to express the human form. We will concentrate on gesture, line, proportion, anatomy and a clear understanding of light and shadow. The aim is to help the student identify the essential elements of the figure and express it. It is important to understand that these skills are the same whether your drawing is a quick study or a fully modeled one. The drawing classes will consist of short and long poses. A few charcoal pencils, a kneaded eraser, and an 18x24 newsprint pad are all that is required but people with experience may use whatever they like in the way of drawing materials and paper

This beautiful musical by Michael Sgouros and Brenda Bell is based on the beloved classic fairy tale. Poor Cinderella, she works all day, has to deal with those awful step-sisters and then sleeps in the cinders. But, don't be too sad because Cinderella is one smart cookie. She'll make it to the Prince's ball and capture his heart.

In addition to the one-hour musical, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how it was turned into a musical. Then the kids and their families make their own crowns and magic wands to take home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production. The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.

The New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking exhibition on one of the most controversial events of the 20th century: the Vietnam War. Populating a 3,000-square-foot gallery with interpretive displays, digital media, artwork, artifacts, photographs, and documents, the exhibit provides an enlightening account of the causes, progression, and impact of the war. Spanning the duration of U.S. involvement in Indochina from 1945 to 1975, the narrative incorporates perspectives that cover both the home front and the war front. Displays feature such topics as the Cold War, the draft, military campaigns initiated by both sides, the growth of the antiwar movement, the role of the president, and the loss of political consensus. Throughout the exhibition, explore themes of patriotism, duty, and citizenship through key objects, including a troopship berthing unit, vibrant antiwar posters, artwork by Vietnam vets, a Viet Cong bicycle, the Pentagon Papers, and historical film footage. Long overdue in the realm of public history, the exhibit not only provides a chronological and thematic analysis of the Vietnam War but also inspires a fuller, more diverse conversation about the war. The exhibition is curated by Marci Reaven, vice president of history exhibitions. The exhibition's illustrated companion book may be purchased at the NYHistory Store.

The season opens on October 21, 2017 with the Tierney Sutton Band, presenting their 2017 GRAMMY® Award-nominated project The Sting Variations. Praised by The New York Times as "a pure jazz spirit," Ms. Sutton and her trio give fresh jazz interpretations to the repertoire of rock icon, Sting. Other jazz performances in the Kumble season include NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron (February 24, 2018), stepping away from his trio to present an evening of solo piano, and Brooklyn's own Alicia Olatuja (March 10, 2018), who first received national recognition for her soaring solo with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Obama's second inauguration.

Award-winning actor/writer/poet/community activist Daniel Beaty portrays more than 40 characters in this solo theatrical tour-de-force as he explores our shared humanity and what it means to be free. Through the characters' various testimonies on identity and personal freedom, Emergency weaves an intricately woven, witty, and moving commentary on modern African American life."We can overcome if we change the way we see, see ourselves, see our past, see our possibility."- Daniel Beaty from Emergency   Kenny Barron (solo piano) Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 8pm, $35 Kumble Theater at LIU Brooklyn Praised by the Los Angeles Times as "one of the top jazz pianists in the world," NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron has an unmatched elegance, melodic sensibility, and rhythmic mastery.

Rockland Center for the Arts, in partnership with Collaborative Concepts, have sited sculptures by 12 regional artists on RoCA's new nature trails just off the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park. Artists create and exhibit site-specific pieces relating to the environment and man, inspired by the natural habitat of the lower Hudson Valley. Artists will address ideas of light, organics, recycling and sustainability through these sculptures. Some may even explore the passage of time, loss or regeneration. Visitors will be able to see the connection between nature and sculpture and how nature can inform design, illuminating the bond between art and nature. The idea is to have adults and children connect with nature, to relieve the ‘nature deficit disorder’ we have these days. Perfectly placed sculptures, visible through and around the natural habitat brings a fresh enchantment to these trails. A glimpse of an art piece beckons the visitor to meander slowly through the paths and observe the intricacies of each exceptional work displayed within the landscape. The sculpture trail connects to the Palisades Park. This tourist destination will have an emotional connection for visitors with nature, the art and inspire all to spend more time outdoors while paying homage to the creative spirit that lives right here in the Hudson Valley and Rockland. The exhibits will be on view May 21, 2017 – April 30, 2018, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY. Gallery hours are: Mon-Fri 10-4 pm; Sat and Sun 1-4 pm. For more information visit www.rocklandartcenter.org or call 845-358-0877.

Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time - The Morgan Library & Museum Through April 29, 2018 - New York

What time is it? The question seems simple, and with a watch on your wrist or a cell phone in your hand, the answer is easy. In the Middle Ages, however, the concept of time could be approached in many different ways, with vastly different tools. Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan's collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it. The manuscripts range in date from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major countries of Europe. The exhibition begins with the quirks of the medieval calendar, exploring sacred feasts, the mysteries of Golden Numbers, the utility of Dominical Letters, and how the Middle Ages inherited the Roman Calendar of Julius Caesar. Visitors will engage with the complexities of time as defined by liturgical celebrations and their two overlapping systems of temporale (feasts of time) and sanctorale (feasts of saints), systems that still influence the way we tell time today. Now and Forever also explores how time beyond the grave preoccupied medieval people for whom life on earth was a mere dress rehearsal for the main event—the afterlife.

Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker - 9/11 Memorial Museum Through May 01, 2018 - New York

“Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker" is an exhibition of 33 covers from the weekly news and culture magazine spanning more than four decades of the evolving New York City skyline. The exhibition takes visitors through the magazine’s depictions of the city’s experience as the Twin Towers were constructed and stood as icons of the city, their sudden absence when they were destroyed, the widely felt grief and anxieties in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, their commemoration in the years that followed, and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site now home to The New Yorker and the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. The exhibition will run through May 2018 in the museum’s South Tower Gallery.

Visitors are introduced to the Museum's exceptional collection of modern art—including painting and sculpture—through works representing the major stylistic movements of the twentieth century. The European collection includes works by artists such as Bonnard, Picasso, Matisse, Miró, Balthus, and Kiefer; the American collection encompasses paintings by the Eight, the Stieglitz circle, Edward Hopper, the Abstract Expressionists, and Jasper Johns.

Assistive listening devices are provided in the gallery where the program begins.Assistive listening devices are provided in the gallery where the program begins.

Walking tots and preschoolers are invited to take part in story time, a craft, dance games and activities, plus free play time. It's a great way for grown-ups to introduce their children to the wonderful world of performing arts in a nurturing and creative environment.

For The Life-Cycle of Interfaces exhibition, the artists will exhibit a suite of four works: Documentation about selected works: Since 2012, Exonemo has been organizing Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet black market), a “backstreet of the internet.” Artists and creators are invited to occupy a flea-market styled exhibition space, and sell items that are interesting and unique to the internet. Originated in Tokyo, Internet Yami-Ichi has since spread out to New York, Berlin, Linz, Brusells, Amsterdam, totaling 17 countries and continuing to grow. “Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for liberty.” Today, our relationship with the internet has become so intimate that we are bringing it to work, dinner, and into bed. Yet, many aspects of the internet also became more restrictive and foreign to us. The Internet Yami-Ichi invites netizens to step off-line, “browse face-to-face,” and reminisce about the wondrous naivete embodied by the early internet era. The documentation also recorded other works created by the artists, which wonder freely between spaces that are seemingly disconnected from one another. DesktopBAM (2010) is a performance piece entailing programmatically controlling a mouse cursor to DJ on a desktop environment. It’s a homage to turntablism, born from using turntables in unconventional ways. The title BAM pays tribute to Afrika Bambaataa, a musician hailing from south Bronx, New York, one of the originators of breakbeat DJing and hip hop culture. The dynamism of this performance is created by the mouse cursor, controlled by computer algorithm, to move faster and more accurately than any human DJ can possibly comprehend. The computational movements trigger the audience’s physicality, while at the same time evoke the “physicality of computers” controlled by humans in return. DanmatsuMouse (2007) humors with the idea of an electronic interface as an object of spirituality. The video records the process of destroying a physical mouse, while simultaneously capturing the motion of the trembling cursor desperately crawling across the digital screen, beckoning for a last bitwise appearance. The expressive movement of the cursor invites us to reconsider our relationship with a tool, an electronic device, or a technological object. Do tools exist for the purpose of helping its owner? Or do they leave behind traces of their own being? Could a tool serve as an interface crossing the immediate to the grandeur - an alternative space that’s ever expanding but never approaching? Fireplace (2014) is a video piece presenting scenes of burning optical mice and keyboards as tinder fed into a fireplace. In the old days of “hearth and home,” the fireplace was the center of the living room and family gathering. With the evolution of technology, fireplace was replaced by TV. In some countries, there are TV channels one can tune in to conveniently display video broadcasts of fireplaces. Entering into the era of hand-held devices, where everyone carries “smart” personal technology with them, PCs are joining the same fate as the fireplace, and other technological objects that are no longer desired. So, how about feeding retired PCs to fireplaces? To burn away yet another legacy as we shift to a new world of decentralized personal displays?

British photographer Edmund Clark has spent ten years exploring structures of power and control in the so-called global War on Terror. Edmund Clark: The Day the Music Died presents photographic, video, and installation work focusing on the measures deemed necessary to protect citizens from the threat of international terrorism. It also explores the far-reaching effects of such methods of control on issues of security, secrecy, legality, and ethics. From Guantanamo Bay to Afghanistan to extraordinary rendition and the CIA's secret prison program, Clark's work finds new ways to visualize the processes, sites, and experiences associated with the United States' response to international terrorism. His engagement with military and state censorship defines the secrecy and denial around these subjects. Through photographs and declassified documents, Clark reveals how the unexpected connections between those who exercise control and those who are subject to it bring this covert torture trail to a human level. He highlights the everyday veneers under which purveyors of detention and interrogation operate in plain sight, brings light to the processes beneath, and reflects on how terror impacts us all by altering fundamental aspects of our society and culture. Organized by Director of Exhibitions and Collections Erin Barnett, this is Clark's first major solo exhibition in the United States.

The exhibition was produced by Wiener Schiller Productions with support from Getty Images, the Jacques Lowe Estate, and Steve Schapiro and presented by the New-York Historical Society. Lead support for this exhibition provided by Leah and Michael R. Weisberg.

With Speed of Life, the Morgan presents the first in-depth retrospective of the New York-based photographer Peter Hujar (1934–1987). Drawn from the extensive holdings of the artist's work at the Morgan and from nine other collections, the exhibition and its catalog explore the artist's full career, from his beginnings in the mid-1950s to his central role in the East Village art scene three decades later. Hujar's sharp, serene, square-format photographs confer gravity on the object of his attention, granting it an eternal moment's pause within the rush of passing time. Hujar focused on the spark of encounter between himself and his subject, be it a goose, a lover, an underground theatrical performer, the dappled surface of the Hudson River, or the placid features of his own face. In early adulthood Hujar worked as a studio assistant to magazine professionals and spent years in Italy with two successive partners, artists Joseph Raffael and Paul Thek. His short career in fashion photography ended in 1971, when Hujar decided the hustle of magazine work "wasn't right for me." After moving into a loft above a theater at Twelfth Street and Second Avenue in 1973, Hujar pursued a bohemian life of poverty, taking paying jobs only when necessary and focusing on the subjects that compelled him. In his book Portraits in Life and Death (1976) Hujar combined intimate portraits of his downtown coterie (painters, performers, choreographers, and writers) with studies of mummies in the Palermo Catacombs. Briefly a lover and then a mentor to the young artist David Wojnarowicz, in his final seven years Hujar continued chronicling a creative Downtown subculture running out of time in a fast-changing city.

New on View "Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker" is an exhibition of 33 covers from the weekly news and culture magazine. From the time the original World Trade Center first rose into the skyline, it began appearing on covers of The New Yorker. For years, artists treated the Twin Towers playfully. After 9/11, somber imagery emerged. While the destruction of the towers was not depicted, the anxiety and sadness engulfing the nation took form on New Yorker covers after the attacks.

Stephen Shore encompasses the entirety of the artist's work of the last five decades, during which he has conducted a continual, restless interrogation of image making, from the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager to his current engagement with digital platforms. One of the most significant photographers of our time, Stephen Shore (American, b. 1947) has often been considered alongside other artists who rose to prominence in the 1970s by capturing the mundane aspects of American popular culture in straightforward, unglamorous images. But Shore has worked with many forms of photography, switching from cheap automatic cameras to large-format cameras in the 1970s, pioneering the use of color before returning to black and white in the 1990s, and in the 2000s taking up the opportunities of digital photography, digital printing, and social media. The artist's first survey in New York to include his entire career, this exhibition will both allow for a fuller understanding of Shore's work, and demonstrate his singular vision—defined by an interest in daily life, a taste for serial and often systematic approaches, a strong intellectual underpinning, a restrained style, sly humor, and visual casualness—and uncompromising pursuit of photography's possibilities.

Towards Catastrophe: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s - Neue Galerie Through May 28, 2018 - New York

On February 22, 2018, Neue Galerie New York will present "Towards Catastrophe: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s," an exhibition devoted to the development of the arts in Germany and Austria during a decade marked by economic crisis, political disintegration, and social chaos. The Neue Galerie is the sole venue for the exhibition, which will be on view through May 28, 2018. The exhibition is organized by Dr. Olaf Peters, University Professor at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, and serves as the third show in a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Peters that focus on German history. The first of these three shows, "Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany 1937" organized in 2014, examined the infamous traveling exhibition "Entartete Kunst" mounted by the National Socialist regime. The exhibition was an enormously popular and critical success. The second show, "Berlin Metropolis: 1918-1933" on view in 2015, explored the critical role played by the city of Berlin in the growth of modern culture. Pandiscio Green is the designer of the exhibition and catalogue for "Towards Catastrophe," and can also be credited for the inventive installations for the previous two shows in this trilogy.

Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through June 03, 2018 - New York

Tarsila do Amaral (Brazilian, 1886–1973) is a foundational figure in the history of modernism in Latin America. The first exhibition in the United States exclusively devoted to the artist focuses on her pivotal production from the 1920s, from her earliest Parisian works, to the emblematic modernist paintings produced in Brazil, ending with her large-scale, socially driven works of the early 1930s. The exhibition features over 130 artworks, including paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and other historical documents drawn from collections across Latin America, Europe, and the United States. Born in São Paulo at the turn of the 19th century, Tarsila?as she is affectionately known in Brazil?studied piano, sculpture, and drawing before leaving for Paris in 1920 to attend the Académie Julian. Throughout subsequent sojourns in Paris, she studied with André Lhote, Albert Gleizes, and Fernand Léger, fulfilling what she called her "military service in Cubism," ultimately arriving at her signature painterly style of synthetic lines and sensuous volumes depicting landscapes and vernacular scenes in a rich color palette. The exhibition follows her journeys between France and Brazil, through Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, charting her involvement with an increasingly international artistic community, and her critical role in the emergence of modernism in Brazil: in 1928, Tarsila painted Abaporu, which quickly spawned the Anthropophagous Manifesto, and became the banner for this transformative artistic movement that sought to digest external influences and produce an art for and of Brazil itself.

Artists Mendi + Keith Obadike have stretched fragments of music, poetry, stories, and myths across the pedestrian plazas and surrounding blocks in all four cardinal directions, for visitors to discover whether they’re exploring the neighborhood or simply on their way to work. The result is Compass Song, a free app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World that officially launches Wednesday, July 12th. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Times Square, as if the city itself is singing to you. Compass Song is centered at Duffy Square, with sounds spread between 49th Street to the north, 42nd Street to the south, 8th Avenue to the west, and 6th Avenue to the east. Let the map guide you within the active soundscape to seek out more of the audio experience, or wander through the district using only the app’s compass to happen upon divergent sonic elements.

A playful and poignant homage to classic silent-film era comedians, Chalk invites audiences into a hand-drawn world where imagination is made real and anything can happen.

Derrick Adams is a New York–based, multidisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the force of popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image.Derrick Adams: Sanctuary is an exhibition of large-scale sculpture, and mixed-media collage and assemblage on wood panels that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1966, during the Jim Crow era in America.

Derrick Adams is a New York–based, multidisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the force of popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image. Derrick Adams: Sanctuary consists of 50 works of mixed-media collage, assemblage on wood panels, and sculpture presented in an installation designed by the artist that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century.

The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, during the Jim Crow era in America. Referred to simply as The Green Book in its day, the publication served as a guide to finding businesses that were welcoming to black Americans, including hotels and restaurants, during an era when open and often legally prescribed discrimination against nonwhites was widespread. These designated safe spaces were places of refuge and leisure, where one could spend quality time with friends and family. The depiction of black America at leisure is a theme of continued interest to Adams, who explores how engaging in leisure as a form of relaxation and reflection can be a political act when embraced by members of black or working-class communities. Derrick Adams: Sanctuary reflects on the plight of working-class black people before and during the Civil Rights Movement, and their determination to pursue the same American Dream afforded to others. Today, The Green Book serves as a poignant artifact and reminder of the importance of equality during a time in which uneven law enforcement continues to negatively shape the lives and experiences of many black Americans. 

Reanimation Library, an ongoing project by Andrew Beccone, is a collection of 2000+ obscure or out-of-print publications the artist has been collecting over 15 years. Chosen primarily for the images that they contain, this collection of books have been culled from thrift stores, rummage sales, flea markets, municipal dumps, library sales, give-away piles, and used bookstores across the country. Housed at Pioneer Books, Reanimation Library will operate as a public non-circulating collection of books for visitors through August 2018. The library space will include tools to use the collection including a computer, scanner, and copier and host a series of related public events. Join us on Thursday, September 14 at Pioneer Works for the opening reception at Pioneer Works. Learn more. Andrew Beccone, founder of the Reanimation Library, is an artist, librarian, and musician. The library has been exhibited widely at venues around the world including Vox Populi (Philadelphia), SPACE (London), High Desert Test Sites (Joshua Tree), talcual (Mexico City), 98weeks (Beirut), the Museum of Modern Art, the Queens Museum, and Kunsthalle Osnabrück. He was a resident at EFA's SHIFT (2014/15) and the Queens Museum Studio Program (2015-2017). He lives and works in Brooklyn.

Access+Ability - Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum Through September 03, 2018 - Upper East Side

This powerful new exhibit displays products, projects, and services developed by and with people with disabilities—physical, cognitive, and sensory—that expand their ability to lead independent lives and engage more fully in the world. The Access+Ability exhibition features more than 70 works, from adaptive clothing and eating implements that assist with daily routines to apps and “smart” technologies that aid in social interactions and navigating the environment. A variety of interactive elements will be installed throughout the exhibition to engage visitors, underscoring the importance of prioritizing users throughout the design process.

Nearly two thousand miles long, the US-Mexico border (la frontera) is the most frequently crossed international border in the world. Although predominantly depicted in the American media as a hub of drug trafficking and violence, the border—porous in nature—is also a place that allows for the exchange of ideas, wealth, and culture. Recently at the forefront of political and cultural conversation following the current US President's anti-immigration discourse and executive orders, the border has been characterized by contradictions since the nineteenth century, when the US annexed an important portion of Mexican territory. For Mexicans, Central Americans, and the United States citizens living alongside it, the border presents daily challenges that carry within them both hope and devastation. It is a complex physical, economic, cultural, social, and emotional landscape of human interaction.

Sacred Spaces: The Road To … and the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room - Rubin Museum of Art Through October 15, 2018 - Chelsea

Featuring artist Ghiora Aharoni’s series “The Road to Sanchi” and two video works by artist Arthur Liou, the exhibition engages time as a medium and challenges viewers to consider the sacred and think about their own experiences with meaningful journeys. These installations continue the exhibition’s focus on devotional activities in awe-inspiring places.

Aharoni’s series of sculptures reimagines vintage taxi meters, now obsolete, from India. Video screens embedded in the meters capture the artist’s rickshaw rides in India to sacred sites for Hindus, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists. Each sculpture, whose form simultaneously references a time capsule and the silhouette of a stupa, becomes the oculus of a pilgrimage. 

The videos “Kora” and “Saga Dawa,” created by Arthur Liou, explore aspects of Tibetan Buddhist ritual and celebration as they take place in the breathtaking environment around Tibet’s holiest mountain, Mount Kailash.

Visitors can take a pause inside the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room, an immersive installation inspired by traditional Tibetan household shrines. They are also invited to write letters to future museumgoers in a dedicated area in the gallery.

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum's foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum's ground floor. York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence

Floor Four, The David Geffen Galleries Innovation in art is often characterized as a singular event—a bolt of lightning that strikes once and forever changes what follows. “The Long Run” provides an alternate view: by chronicling the continued experimentation of artists long after their breakthrough moments, it suggests that invention results from sustained critical thinking, persistent observation, and countless hours in the studio. Each work in this presentation exemplifies an artist’s distinct evolution. For some, this results from continually testing the boundaries of a given medium, for others it reflects the pressures of social, economic, and political circumstances. Often, it is a combination of both. “The Long Run” includes monographic galleries and rooms that bring together artists broad ranging in background and approach, drawn from MoMA’s collection. All the artists in this presentation are united by a ceaseless desire to make meaningful work, year after year, across decades. They include Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Joan Jonas, Helen Levitt, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O’Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, and many others.

The core exhibition of the Museum, a one-of-a-kind experience that immerses visitors in the creative and technical process of producing, promoting, and presenting films, television shows, and digital entertainment. Occupying 15,000 square feet of the Museum's second and third floors, the exhibition reveals the skills, material resources, and artistic decisions that go into making moving images. Behind the Screen also introduces visitors to the history of the moving image, from nineteenth-century optical toys to the present-day impact of digital tools on film editing and post-production. Children under the age of fourteen must be accompanied by an adult of eighteen years or older. Artifacts: The exhibition incorporates approximately 1,400 artifacts from the Museum's collection of the material culture of the moving image. These include historic film and television cameras, projectors, television sets, sound recording equipment, costumes, set design sketches and models, make-up, fan magazines, posters, and an outstanding collection of licensed merchandise?dolls, toys, board games, lunch boxes, and more. The Museum has also been a pioneer in collecting video arcade and console games, which are on exhibit and available for play by visitors. Recently acquired objects on view include makeup used on the stars of Sex in the City, a mechanical prop designed by Mike Marino for a climactic scene in Black Swan, and molds and prototypes produced during the creation of a King Kong action figure. Computer-based interactive experiences: Visitors may record their own movements as a sequence of still photographs that can be printed out and made into a flipbook; create their own stop-motion animations, which they can save and email; record their voices over dialogue from a film, following the same procedure that actors use when dubbing their lines in post-production; choose sound effects to add to the images of well-known movies and television shows; add music to scenes from movies, and to experience how music affects mood and tone. Audio-visual material: Behind the Screen includes nearly four hours of audio-visual material that ranges from film clips related to the artifacts on display; projections of the earliest kinetoscope films, The Great Train Robbery, and selections from The Jazz Singer and Nanook of the North, all of which bring key moments in film history vividly to life; special videos, including The First Movies about Etienne Jules Marey and Chuck Workman's Precious Images; and a simulation of a live TV control room, taking visitors inside the room where director Bill Webb called the shots for the broadcast of a game between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres. Commissioned artworks: Artworks created especially for incorporation into Behind the Screen are Tut's Fever by Red Grooms and Lysiane Luong, a real movie theater equipped for video that seats thirty-five; TV Lounge by Jim Isermann, an environment resembling a 1960s living room; and Feral Fount by Gregory Barsamian, a stroboscopic zoetrope using 97 sculptures rotating on an armature to create a short animation.

A permanent exhibition devoted to Jim Henson. This dynamic visitor experience—housed in a new gallery space funded by the City of New York—explores Henson’s groundbreaking work for film and television and his transformative impact on popular culture. The Jim Henson Exhibition features a broad range of artifacts from throughout Jim Henson's remarkable television and film career. It reveals how Henson and his team of builders, performers, and writers brought to life the enduringly popular worlds of The Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth. It also includes material from Henson’s lesser known and experimental film projects, presenting Henson as a restlessly creative performer, filmmaker, and technical innovator. Among the nearly 300 objects on view in The Jim Henson Exhibition are 47 puppets—including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Rowlf, The Swedish Chef, Statler, Waldorf, Big Bird, Elmo, Cantus Fraggle, a Skeksis, and other popular favorites—character sketches, storyboards, scripts, photographs, and iconic costumes. Film and television clips and behind-the-scenes footage are presented on more than 27 monitors and projections throughout. Interactive experiences allow visitors to try their hand at puppeteering on screen and designing a puppet character. Many of the artifacts in the exhibition are drawn from the 2013 donation by Jim Henson’s family to the Museum’s collection, which includes nearly 500 objects related to Henson’s unparalleled career and features historic puppets, costumes, production design material, and licensed merchandise. The exhibition also includes sketches, storyboards, scripts, and other material on loan from The Jim Henson Company Archives. Archival video and photographic material was provided by The Jim Henson Company, Sesame Workshop, and The Muppets Studio.

Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract is home to about 100 trillion bacteria? That's more organisms than there are stars in the Milky Way! Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. This new perspective leads us to look at our bodies not just as individuals, but as entire ecosystems.Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health and introduces some of the scientists who are breaking new ground in microbiome research.Inspired by the Museum's popular exhibition The Secret World Inside You, this exhibition introduces visitors to microbes that live in, on, and around all of us. Engaging graphics detail how microbes aid digestion, influence your immune system, and help fight harmful microbes. You'll find out how we acquire our microbiome and how it is shaped by the foods we eat and the environment we live in. Inside You is co-curated by Susan Perkins and Rob DeSalle, curators in the Museum's Division of Invertebrate Zoology and the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics. Inside You is proudly supported by the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson. This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of the Arthur Ross Foundation.

New Permanent Exhibit: Titanosaur - The American Museum of Natural History Through January 19, 2020 - Upper West Side

The museum adds another must-see exhibit opening on January 15, a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur Titanosaur that is part of a special year of dinosaur events, exhibitions, and digital offerings. Paleontologists have inferred that this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 77 tons—as much as 14 or 15 African elephants. In preparation for adding this colossal new exhibit, the museum closed the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center in September to remove the hall's current incumbent: a life-sized—but, by comparison, diminutive—fleshed-out model of a juvenile Barosaurus that has been on display since the completion of the fourth floor in June 1996. The new, much larger occupant will graze the gallery's approximately 19-foot-high ceilings and, at 122 feet (37.2 meters), is just a bit too long to fit completely into the space. Instead, its neck and head will extend out towards the elevator banks, welcoming visitors to the "dinosaur" floor.

The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will open Connected Worlds, its exciting and groundbreaking new exhibition on environmental sustainability, on June 27, 2015. Presented in NYSCI's iconic Great Hall, Connected Worlds is a fully immersive, digitally rendered interactive experience where visitors are encouraged to explore the interconnectedness of different environments, learn about the importance of keeping systems in balance, and see how our individual and collective actions can have widespread impact. Through their gestures and movements, visitors interact with animated creatures, plants, trees and other objects, and see how human decisions affect the environment. "Connected Worlds reflects what NYSCI is all about – a playful hands-on activity, a focus on problem-solving, and deep engagement with a topic. Connected Worlds gives visitors confidence in their ability to effect change, and empowers them within a larger environment," said Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. "This leads to passionate learners – a hallmark of the NYSCI experience." Connected Worlds features gesture-based technologies that generate and project images onto seven massive screens. Six of the screens are more than 14 feet tall and one screen, which shows a digital waterfall, is 38 feet tall. The screens show six different, but interconnected, environments – desert, mountain valley, plains, reservoir, jungle and wetlands – each with their own unique trees, plants and creatures, but sharing common resources, such as water and weather patterns. Some of the animals travel across environments for breeding or to access food. A central reservoir, which is fed by the waterfall and supplies water to the six environments, is projected on the floor, covering approximately 2,300 square feet.

THEATER Adapted by Naomi Iizuka Directed and devised by Rachel Dickstein and Ripe Time Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival "This is my 17th straight day without sleep." A Japanese housewife's mundane existence of chores and grocery shopping explodes when a haunting dream leads her to cast sleep aside, releasing her into a world of danger and the thrill of the unknown. Based on the 1994 short story by the beloved Japanese author Haruki Murakami (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle), this hypnotic physical theater piece by Brooklyn-based, Obie Award-winning company Ripe Time follows one woman beyond the bounds of society. Led by a powerhouse female creative team—including director Rachel Dickstein and playwright Naomi Iizuka—and featuring an original score performed live by NewBorn Trio, this playful and eerie journey takes audiences through a wakeful realm where bodies float, ghosts lurk, and daylight rules no longer apply.

DEAR EVAN HANSEN MUSICAL PRODUCTION REVIEW Dear Evan Hansen has surpassed Josh Groban as Broadway’s biggest new hit. With $1.1 million in its pockets, this musical is creating a huge buzz that is drawing ardent fans across the board. Its average ticket price of $141 remains one of the highest box office rates in its niche. This amazing hit was originally in book form and the creativity of Steven Levenson led to its seamless transition to a wave-making high school musical. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the musicals for Dear Evan Hansen. It is on track to be one of the most successful pieces of musical theater ever to originate in Washington. The plot is centered on the peculiar problem of communicating in a time where technology has made it easier to reach out to people. Evan Hansen is a friendless high school student who achieves Internet fame due to a misunderstanding he perpetuates in regards to his supposed closeness to another troubled classmate who committed suicide. The twists in the story line help to accentuate the challenges that the younger generation face in today’s world. The gripping effects of the story and the raw show of emotions make this story one of the most amazing productions to ever grace Broadway. Parents can gain more insight and understanding into their children. Children can watch and learn how challenging it is for their parents to understand them at times. Grandparents, well, they will get to view this communications conundrum from all angles and certainly gain a good chuckle along the way. This record-setting, sold-out musical has been attracting positive reviews from leading names in the industry and beyond. Peter Marks of the Washington post calls it ‘’A heart-piercing trip to the place that musical theater can sometimes take us to.’’ He believes that this musical, which was first performed on November 14, 2016, holds the ace in every range. On the other hand, Charles Isherwood of the New York Times proclaims “This is a superb musical with great heart and humor.’’ When you leave a musical with one or two great songs running through your head, it can be said to be a success. However, leaving a musical with about 10 great songs running through your head is pretty much unheard of. The power of Dear Evan Hansen has set a new height that may not be surpassed by any production for many years. This is a performance that anyone serious about the arts absolutely must see and a performance certain to draw in permanently that first time attendee to a Broadway performance.

Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depicts a scene with a bullring and celebratory spectators. Picasso painted it as an illusionistic window in a larger curtain that functioned as a backdrop setting the scene for the ballet. At some point before 1956 Diaghilev cut it from its larger context. For more than half a century the curtain, believed to be the largest Picasso painting in the United States, has hung in the hallway of the Four Seasons Restaurant, in the landmarked Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, on Park Avenue and Fifty-second Street in New York City. Vivendi, the company that once owned the Seagram Building, gave the Picasso curtain to the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2005 as a "Gift to the City." The show positions Picasso's curtain in a dialogue with other N-YHS objects, including paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work as well as to the traditions against which the revolutionary artist rebelled. Other thematic threads pivot around dance subjects and explore roughly contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors. Among the works included will be examples by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Will H. Bradley, Philippe de Champaigne, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Childe Hassam, Malvina Hoffman, Ricardo de Madrazo y Garreta, Elie Nadelman, Edward Penfield, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Adriaen van Utrecht.
