New York Shakespeare Exchange World Premiere staged reading of The Card Play @ 53rd Street Library Theater
Sep 24 all-day

New York Shakespeare Exchange
announces the

World Premiere staged reading of
The Card Play

a new theatrical experiment by Shane Breaux and Kevin Brewer in partnership with the 53rd Street Library

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 7:00 pm

New York Shakespeare Exchange announces a world premiere staged reading of a new theatrical experiment, The Card Play co-written by NYSX’s Resident Dramaturg Shane Breaux and Resident Playwright Kevin Brewer,on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 from 7-9pm (doors open to audience at 6:30pm) at the 53rd Street Library Theater (18 W. 53rd Street, NYC). This event is free.

The Card Play, co-written by Shane Breaux and Kevin Brewer, explores the power and fallibility of memory by following Mark, a painter, through the twists and turns of his life. At each performance, the order of his memories is randomly arranged by the shuffle of a deck of cards, creating for a unique experience for each and every audience. The randomized style of the performance allows for more than 469 million versions of the play and invites the audience to experience, alongside the actors, a palpable sense of how memories appear and disappear throughout our lives.

The cast includes Vince Gatton, Erin Treadway, Joel Oramas, and Jay Ben Markson. The reading is directed by Ross Williams.

The event is free, but reservations are strongly encouraged. Visit www.nysx.org to reserve your seat.

New York Shakespeare Exchange bridges cultural divides, starts conversations, promotes education, and brings communities together through diverse, classically based programming that re-imagines how Shakespearean theater and poetry can impact our modern world. Brimming with an unwavering sense of adventure, their work honors the legacy of the Bard while intersecting his poetry with today’s ever-changing social, political, and technological landscapes. From star-crossed lovers wooing across a crowded bar, to sonnets interpreted as independent film, to live productions that highlight Shakespeare’s verse in a contemporary context, our projects challenge expectations and lead us forward to continued innovation.

NYSX is internationally known for its The Sonnet Project (in which more than 1,500 volunteer filmmakers from around the world have joined the discussion by creating short films in New York locations based on all 154 Shakespeare sonnets). NYSX also produces at least one mainstage production a year. This past season NYSX staged a critically acclaimed, new adaptation of Midsummer Night’s Dream, conceived and directed by Brendan Averett which ran in January/February 2019 at the Secret Theater in Long Island City, NY.

In the coming months, NY Shakespeare Exchange will offer a number of exciting community-based events including the next iteration of their Freestyle Lab series-part performance, part lecture, and part town hall conversation. This fall, NYSX will present three of our signature Freestyle Labs at the New York Public Library at 53rd Street on October 22, and November 19, 2019.

MORE: Strand Book Store will sell books at the event and Sidney Blumenthal will sign copies following the discussion.

The event is free and open to the public. General public should reserve a space at http://bit.ly/sblincoln. Please note seating is on a first come basis; an RSVP does not guarantee admission as we generally overbook to ensure a full house.

During this free, open event, Sidney Blumenthal, the acclaimed author of two previous volumes on Abraham Lincoln, recounts Lincoln’s astonishing return from the political desert and ascent to the presidency, including his landmark speech at Cooper Union in February 1860. In the talk, Blumenthal discusses his latest book, All the Powers of Earth: The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln, 1856-1860 (Simon & Schuster) which is the third volume of a projected five-part work.

To fulfill his own burning ambition and become the unlikely savior of the Union, Lincoln had to first build a new national political party, confront the brilliant demagogue Stephen Douglas, and outmaneuver politicians of far greater standing. History is inevitably seen through the lens of the present moment, but Blumenthal’s account of Lincoln’s political life in the years immediately preceding the Civil War sounds remarkably contemporary. With All the Powers of Earth, Sidney Blumenthal carries the story of Lincoln’s political life through the most intense and crucial years yet, offering a penetrating and panoramic portrayal of American politics on the brink of the Civil War, and of the man who miraculously arose to lead the nation during its time of greatest trial.

Sidney Blumenthal is the acclaimed author of A Self-Made Man and Wrestling with His Angel, the first two volumes in his five-volume biography, The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln.  He is the former assistant and senior adviser to President Bill Clinton and senior adviser to Hillary Clinton.  He has been a national staff reporter for The Washington Post and Washington editor and writer for The New Yorker. His books include the bestselling The Clinton Wars, The Rise of the Counter-Establishment, and The Permanent Campaign.

“One of the best representatives of Greek avant-garde,
Elli Papakonstantinou never ceases to surprise us.”

– ATHINORAMA, Maria Kryou

Award-winning international theatre company ODC Ensemble, based in Athens, Greece, with New York City’s The Directors Company, proudly present the New York premiere of the innovative cinematic opera “OEDIPUS: Sex with Mum Was Blinding.” Conceived, written, and directed by 2018-19 Fulbright Artist’s Award recipient Elli Papakonstantinou, “OEDIPUS: Sex with Mum Was Blinding” has original music composed by Tilemachos Moussas and Julia Kent performed live into an array of surreal cinematic environments created by Stephanie Sherriff. “OEDIPUS: Sex with Mum Was Blinding” will play a strictly limited engagement at BAM Fisher (Fishman Space), located at 321 Ashland Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217, from Wednesday, September 25 – Sunday, September 29, 2019. Tickets to “OEDIPUS: Sex with Mum Was Blinding” are $30 General Admission and are available at https://tickets.bam.org/production/?pid=21720.

An immersive opera which mixes traditional performance with cutting-edge technology and emerging neuroscience, the production draws narrative inspiration from Sophocles’ classic tragedy Oedipus Rex. A 2018-19 Fulbright Artist’s Award recipient and visiting scholar at Stanford University; 2018-19 “Music Theatre Now” international award recipient, Elli creates her own visually striking, lyric adaptation and explores engaging audiences in a new radical way. By using new technologies which turn the audience into the actual chorus of the opera, the piece rediscovers the community at the heart of a political performance, as it was in the ancient times.

Mythology, pop cultural references, and gender reexaminations feed into this unique theatrical mashup, as an all-female acting ensemble of opera singers, led by a female Oedipus, and jazz vocalists join forces with musical virtuosos (live augmented cello, piano & new instruments) on stage for a deep dive into a haunting mind game.

Partly developed during the director’s stay at the Center for Computer Research in Music & Acoustics (CCRMA), Stanford University, “OEDIPUS: Sex with Mum Was Blinding” also has artists and scientists joining forces on a new neuroscientific case study. The study explores the questions: “Are we free?,” “Dο we experience free will?,” Are there real alternatives, or is all that takes place the outcome of necessity?” An exploration into Determinism and Self, the answers describe either our majesty or captivity.

The advisor to the project is Professor Manos Tsakiris, Professor of Psychology, University of London (manostsakiris.com).

“OEDIPUS: Sex with Mum Was Blinding” was presented at CCRMA, Stanford University on April 4, 2019, produced by ODC Ensemble. The limited engagement at BAM Fisher is the beginning of an international tour. The next staging will take place in Athens, Greece later this fall, with the participation of cognitive scientists from The Warburg Institute, University of London.

The cast of “OEDIPUS: Sex with Mum Was Blinding” at BAM Fisher (Fishman Space) includes Nassia Gofa, Elias Husiak, Anastasia Katsinavaki, Theodora Loukas, Lito Messini, Misha Piatigorsky, Manos Tsakiris and musicians Julia Kent (cello) and Misha Piatigorsky (piano).

Electroacoustic environments are provided by Hassan Estakrian and Barbara Nerness.

This event is presented by ODC Ensemble with The Directors Company. BAM house and ticketing policies may not apply. BAM Membership benefits do not apply.

“OEDIPUS: Sex with Mum Was Blinding” is supported by the Hellenic Republic, Ministry of Culture and Sports; the Neon Foundation; the J.F. Costopoulos Foundation; ODC Ensemble; CCRMA; Stanford University; BIAS and the School of Advanced Studies, University of London.

BIOGRAPHIES

ELLIPAPAPAKONSTANTINOU (Creator, Libretto, Director) creates live performances with an emphasis on opera, new plays and new media. While revisiting the classics in immersive experiences that involve multiple actors of the community, her art connects notions of myth, politics and major narratives of our days. Papakonstantinou has lived in the UK for over a decade and has created and presented her work in international festivals and venues like: Edinburgh Festival (UK), LaMaMa E.T.C., (USA), the West End (UK), Prague Quadrennial 15 (CH), National Theatre of Greece (GR), Inauguration Ceremony of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (EG), Operadagen Festival (HL), Neukoellner Oper Berlin (GE), Megaron (National Concert Hall) (GR), Musikteatre Festival (AU) and more. Papakonstantinou has been commissioned by European Capitals of Culture “Valetta18” (Malta), “Eleusis21” (Greece) and ‘Pafos17’ (Cyprus) and has presented her work for the European Parliament for Culture in 2017. Her creations tour internationally including representing Greece at PQ (official Hellenic participation Prague Quadrennial 2015). Amongst other artistic achievements, her last work the Cave was awarded a ‘Music Theatre Now 2018-19 international award’, while for other works she has received a “First Prize Award” at the Edinburgh Festival, (UK) and a “First Prize Award 2017” for the REP, Birmingham (UK). Papakonstantinou shaped her ideas from the civic movements that emerged in Greece during the crisis. She pledges her talent to increase empowerment. During the crisis in Greece, Papakonstantinou engaged herself beyond the “usual” role of a theatre director to become politically engaged entrepreneur, founded and directed Vyrsodepseio, a 3.000 sq. m. art space in Athens (2011-2017). Vyrsodepseio served as a base for the international performance company ODC Ensemble (founded by Papakonstantinou since 2002) but also as a vibrant hub, an evolving project for horizontal politics and synergies with a focus on international networking (a proud partner of three Creative Europe projects and member of the independent networks Trans Europe Halles and IETM). Named a Visiting CCRMA Scholar by Stanford University and a visiting scholar by Princeton University and nominated twice with a Fulbright Artist’s Award, Papakonstantinou tends to defy traditional categories. She conducted a free fall on the same day as directing Shakespeare’s Richard II for the first time. She is a mountaineer and her passion for the high peaks often takes her as far as the top of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania or the Himalayas; she could spend her life under water and is always looking for more opportunities to create cross sectorial and multimedia hybrid work. Papakonstantinou founded the company ODC Ensemble to challenge what opera and music theatre is all about. She writes and directs all of the company’s works. Papakonstantinou holds a BA at the School of Arts, University of Thessaloniki (GR) and an MA and M.Phil at the Royal Holloway, University of London (U.K.). In addition to “Oedipus: Sex with Mum was Blinding,” she is currently working on The Kindly Ones, presented in 2019 at the Mauthausen Concentration Camp Memorial in Austria. Visit elli.site.

JULIA KENT (Composer) is a Canadian, New York City-based, Vancouver, British Columbia-born, cellist and composer. She has performed as a member of Rasputina and with Antony and the Johnsons. She creates music using looped cello, found sounds, and electronics. In 2007, she released “Delay,” her first solo album, on Important Records. An EP, Last Day in July, was released for commercial distribution in 2010, and a second full-length record, Green and Grey, in 2011, on Tin Angel. In 2013 Kent moved to The Leaf Label, releasing her third solo album, Character, in March. Her album Asperities was released on Leaf on 30 October 2015. Kent spoke about the album in an interview, saying “I was thinking about the concept of difficulty. Whether in life or in nature – of conflict, of being troubled. The idea of friction. Also in geology, an asperity is some part of a fault line that doesn’t move which can create an earthquake, which is quite an evocative concept…In the music there is an inherent sense of dissonance; that things are too close for comfort. More generally, it seems like a particularly dark time in the world right now, and I think that definitely had an influence too”. Her composition “Dorval” was used in the 2008 film Trinidad, and in The Good Show, an episode of National Public Radio’s Radiolab. In 2011 her composition “Gardermoen,” from “Delay,” was used in Paolo Sorrentino’s movie This Must Be the Place. She composed music for the Canadian documentary film The Boxing Girls of Kabul, the short film Birthplace, “A Short History of Decay,” and “Oasis,” which won Best Short Film at the Seville European Film Festival 2015. She has also composed and performed music for theatre and dance, including productions by the Italian company Balletto Civile. As a solo artist, she has appeared at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, the Meltdown Festival in London, the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, the CTM festival in Berlin, The 24-Hour Drone in Hudson, NY and the Unsound festival in New York City.

W.O. Decker, the last remaining New-York built wooden tugboat, was built in 1930 by the Newtown Creek Towing Company and originally named Russell I,after the towing company’s owners. She was renamed W.O. Decker in 1946 after being sold to the Decker family’s Staten Island tugboat firm. The tugboat was donated to the Seaport Museum in 1986. Decker is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is an exemplary model of the types of steam tugs that were once an abundant sight in New York Harbor. This unique vessel is a true testament to New York City’s maritime heritage, which is a direct factor in the city’s global prominence today.

Inspired by Camille A. Brown’s The Gathering, the event will bring together self-identifying Latinx dancers, choreographers, educators, and administrators for a long table discussion to articulate their needs and recommendations for thriving artistic practice in the metropolitan NYC area. What are the contributions of Latinx dance makers to what is today’s NYC Dance Landscape? How do we continue to preserve, support and resource Latinx dance makers and cultural workers? What is the impact that systems of oppression have on Latinx dance makers and cultural workers and what is their role in addressing social justice issues?

“We celebrate our Latinidad on a daily basis, but it is vital that we come together during this month to celebrate the strength of our voices and the impact of our cultural and artistic contributions on our nation,” said Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director & CEO of Ballet Hispánico.

Ballet Hispánico continues the celebration, Unidos Por La Cultura(United By Culture) with the company’s 3rd Annual A La Calle Block Party onSunday, September 29 from noon-4:00pm.Ballet Hispánico will take over West 89th Street (between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues), its home for 50 years, for a four-hour celebration of Latinx unity, dance, music, art, food and community.The event will include free performances by the internationally renowned Company and prestigious School of Dance and Community Arts Partnerships students, as well as live music, free dance classes for all ages, children’s activities, and raffles. The A La Calle Block Party is sponsored by Popular Bank, Nielson, AARP, and Wells Fargo. This event is free and open to the public.

Dance/NYC’s mission is to promote the knowledge, appreciation, practice, and performance of dance in the metropolitan New York City area. It embeds values of justice, equity, and inclusion into all aspects of the organization. It works in alliance with Dance/USA, the national service organization for professional dance.

Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground.

The organization’s founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today, Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company whose vision of social equity, cultural identity, and quality arts education for all drives its programs.

Ballet Hispánico, a role model in and for the Latino community, is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education.

Eduardo Vilaro (Artistic Director & CEO) joined Ballet Hispánico as Artistic Director in August 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. In 2015, Mr. Vilaro took on the additional role of Chief Executive Officer of Ballet Hispánico. He has been part of the Ballet Hispánico family since 1985 as a dancer and educator, after which he began a ten-year record of achievement as founder and Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago. Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico’s legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America’s changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education. Mr. Vilaro was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame in 2016 and was awarded HOMBRE Magazine’s 2017 Arts & Culture Trailblazer of the Year. In 2019, Mr. Vilaro was the recipient of the West Side Spirit’s WESTY Award, was honored by WNET for his contributions to the arts, and most recently, was the recipient of the James W. Dodge Foreign Language Advocate Award.

Major funding for Ballet Hispánico programming is provided by The Arnhold Foundation, The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The Ford Foundation, the Howard Gilman Foundation, The Jerome L. Greene Foundation, The Francis Lear Foundation, The MetLife Foundation, The SHS Foundation, and The Shubert Foundation.

Programming is also made possible by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.

NYHC Fall Event to Feature Hands-on MultiCrafts Demos and Popup Market @ Grand Bazaar | New York | New York | United States

New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) Joins Grand Bazaar For “Hands-On!” Multi Crafts Demonstrations & Pop-Up Market

Sunday, September 29, 2019

Unique Fall shopping experience will feature live demos and a juried selection of one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted, locally made, artisanal crafts and accessories.

The New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) — formerly known as the Etsy NY Street Team — in partnership with the Grand Bazaar NYC — will welcome Fall with hands-on, multi crafts demonstrations and a pop-up market. This unique shopping experience of live outdoor craft demos and a dynamic handcrafted product showcase of the NYHC’s local talent, will take place on Sunday, Sept. 29, from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, at the popular shopping destination located at 100 West 77 Street and Columbus Avenue.

“Grand Bazaar NYC firmly believes in supporting local artists, designers and craft-makers, which helps keep our city vibrant and creative,” said Marc Seago, Executive Director at Grand Bazaar NYC. “We’re thrilled that the NY Handmade Collective will once again be joining us for this exciting Fall shopping experience.”

Shoppers will discover a diverse selection of outstanding, one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted merchandise created by over 40 talented, multi-disciplined artisans and designers from the New York metropolitan area. The vast array of exceptional goods will run the gamut from fine art, eye-catching stationery, unusual jewelry, distinctive fashions, home decor and amazing skincare products to items for children and pets.

“This season’s new and improved market offers a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes, shop and watch the hands-on creation of unique products from our cadre of diverse, talented local artisans,” said Andi B. O’Connor, co-organizer. “Situated within the long-established Upper West Side market that is the Grand Bazaar NYC, the NYHC Show will highlight the value of quality handmade crafts in today’s society when so much is mass-produced and disposable.”

The Importance of Handmade

Recently NYHC surveyed over 200 artisans to gather impressions and data on the importance of quality handmade products. At this season’s show, NYHC will have a table with information and materials on this subject, staffed by members who can answer visitors’ questions. For example,creators of handcrafted goods are part of a community dedicated to connecting with customers and bringing back the personal touch that is so rare in today’s digital global marketplace.

Other survey findings:

Handmade products tend to be of higher quality, singular and authentic, reflecting rich cultures and traditions and an eco-friendly, sustainable, environmental awareness that is present in these artisans’ practices and processes. Handcrafted items also nurture creativity and individuality and perpetuate the art of crafting. In addition, handmade products are beautiful, one-of-a-kind and well-made. As a result, they tend to be more valuable and durable than mass-produced, disposable items.

About NYHC:

Founded in 2007 and representing one of the oldest, largest and most professionally organized teams of local active sellers on Etsy, Inc., the NYHC has cultivated a long-established, local presence in the NYC metro area by hosting a number of successful and highly curated in-person markets, workshops and events: Holiday Handmade Cavalcade, Crafts in Chelsea, and Celebrate Brooklyn, to name a few. NYHC is also known for its all-volunteer organization dedicated to the promotion and marketing of online selling opportunities on behalf of its members through its wide-ranging press outreach, expansive social media presence, informative blogs and beautiful website.

From Balanchine to Bournonville and Petipa to Tharp, Ballet West boasts a rich and varied repertoire, elegant and versatile artists and an American style and legacy that is as dynamic, expansive and unexpected as the Rocky Mountain region it represents. Ballet West has toured the world several times over presenting the very best in American classical ballet.

Ballet West was established in Salt Lake City in 1963. Willam F. Christensen was the company’s first artistic director, co-founding the company together with Utah’s “First Lady of the Arts” Glenn Walker Wallace. In 1951, Christensen had established the first ballet department in an American university at The University of Utah and with the tireless assistance of Mrs. Enid Cosgriff this program grew into the Utah Civic Ballet, Ballet West’s first incarnation. But this was not the first ballet company Willam Christensen founded. Along with his brothers Lew and Harold, Christensen made history by establishing the oldest ballet company in the western United States, the San Francisco Ballet. There he went on to create the first full-length American productions of Coppélia, Swan Lake, and his evergreen production of The Nutcracker, which remains in Ballet West’s repertoire to this day.

With 40 company members, 10 second company members, and a thriving academy that trains dancers of all ages, many of whom have gone on to professional careers with Ballet West and companies around the world, Ballet West ranks among the top professional ballet companies in America. Since its inception, the Company has had five artistic directors – its founder Willam Christensen, Bruce Marks, John Hart, Jonas Kåge and currently Adam Sklute, each who have helped to build Ballet West’s unique and expansive profile.

A 20th Century ballet pioneer, Christensen developed a distinctly American and theatrical repertoire for his company based on his early training in Utah and New York City as well as his years traversing the American Vaudeville circuit. He also built a strong connection to the works of George Balanchine. In 1975 Christensen invited the great American dancer Bruce Marks to join him as Ballet West’s Co-Artistic Director. Marks became Artistic Director in 1978 when Christensen retired.  Under Marks’ direction, the company presented its first full production of Swan Lake and it earned a reputation for developing emerging choreographers of the time. Also during this period Marks made history, along with his wife, the acclaimed Danish Ballerina, Toni Lander, by presenting the first American full-length production of Abdallah by renowned 19th Century Danish choreographer, August Bournonville. John Hart, C.B.E., former dancer, administrator, and Assistant Director of The Royal Ballet in England succeeded Marks as Artistic Director of Ballet West In 1985. Under his leadership, the company’s repertoire was expanded to include more well-loved 19th Century classics such as The Sleeping Beauty. Hart further enriched the company’s treasure trove of ballets with the works of many early 20th Century masters, most notably the great Englishchoreographer, Sir Frederick Ashton. From 1985 to 1996, Hart engaged San Francisco-based Val Caniparoli as Ballet West’s resident choreographer. Internationally known dancer and choreographer Jonas Kåge served as Artistic Director from 1997 to 2006. During this time Kåge maintained Ballet West’s repertoire of classics while revitalizing its profile with notable late 20th Century choreographers such as Christopher Bruce, Hans van Manen, Glen Tetley and William Forsythe.

Since 2007, Artistic Director Adam Sklute, former dancer, Ballet Master and Associate Director of The Joffrey Ballet has further energized and expanded Ballet West’s remarkable repertoire with works by the most renowned choreographers of today such as Ulysses Dove, Jiri Kylian, Mark Morris, Twyla Tharp, and Stanton Welch. Sklute has also introduced the elegant historical masterpieces from the great Ballets Russes of the early 20th Century and continues to preserve Ballet West’s classical legacy.  Sklute has further strengthened Ballet West’s heritage by introducing new creations by local, national and international choreographers.

For 50 years, Willam Christensen and Ballet West have developed and influenced innumerable great artists in the ballet world. Some notable figures include Bart Cook, Finis Jhung, Jay Jolley, Victoria Morgan, Tomm Ruud, Michael Smuin, Richard Tanner, and Kent Stowell.

With this eclectic and ever-expanding outlook, Ballet West is truly an American pioneer in the world of dance.

Open 7 days a week; 11:00 am – 8:00 pm

30 Rockefeller Plaza
Entrance on 6th Avenue Between 49th and 50th Streets, Manhattan

Contemporary British artist Lucy Sparrow, known for her covetable felt art pieces and shops, will return to New York City with Lucy Sparrow’s Delicatessen on 6th, an interactive public art project and retail experience at Rockefeller Center. Opening on the corner of 49th Street and 6th Avenue on October 1, this sixth installation in her felt shop series will resemble a New York City upscale deli, with every single one of the items, from cheese to fish, chocolate to fruit handmade out of felt. All items in the fine food shop will be available for purchase.

Each of her installations has unveiled a site-specific, interactive, parallel universe, envisioned and then faithfully reproduced in felt. Lucy Sparrow’s Delicatessen on 6th will pay homage to the gourmet treasure trove of temptation for which New York is famous: the upscale deli. At Rockefeller Center, Lucy’s on 6th will be a fine food emporium with every counter – from patisserie to confectionary, fancy French fromages to fresh fish and seafood – overflowing with a cornucopia of unique full-felted, hand-stitched, bejeweled artworks. New for this installation, the artwork is adorned with tiny eyes and smiles, encouraging the viewer to examine their relationship with the food they purchase and to consider their own thoughts about consumerism.

This installation is part of the ‘Art in Focus’ public art program at Rockefeller Center presented in partnership with the nonprofit Art Production Fund.

Ruth Stage

Presents

The Glass Menagerie

October 3 – 20, 2019

Wild Project
195 E 3rd St

Ruth Stage is thrilled to present a chilling new take on Tennessee Williams’ seminal play, THE GLASS MENAGERIE, directed by Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch.

After two critically acclaimed runs in 2018 of Wars of the Roses, directors Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch reunite with actor Matt de Rogatis to take on the American classic, The Glass Menagerie. In this disquieting production, the tormented Tom (de Rogatis) relives the story of his time in the Wingfields St. Louis apartment, circa 1939, as if he were remembering it through the lens of a spooky dream.

The cast, led by Ginger Grace as the iconic Amanda Wingfield, consists of Matt de Rogatis as her son Tom Wingfield, Alexandra Rose as Laura Wingfield, and Spencer Scott as The Gentleman Caller.

Set designer Jessie Bonaventure, who was the assistant set designer on the Broadway musical Hadestown, which garnered four Tony Awards, including Best Scenic Design, collaborates with lighting designer Steven Wolf to create a version of this Tennessee Williams masterpiece that borders on horror.

Dimly lit and surrealistic, the set itself will consist of props made of glass and the actors will live in a chilling, dreamlike world. Taking inspiration from the The Exorcist soundtrack, Sean Haggerty writes the score for this Wes Craven meets Tennessee Williams production. Allison Hohman designs the sound for the Wingfield house of horrors.

The Pink Hulk: One Woman’s Journey to Find the Superhero Within

October 8 – 13, 2019

Theater at the 14th Street Y
344 East 14th Street

Learn more at this official page here…

Internationally acclaimed, award-winning solo show written and performed by cancer survivor Valerie David, directed by Padraic Lillis and Maris Heller. Now battling breast cancer after fighting off lymphoma, Valerie does something most people facing cancer in their life probably wouldn’t think of doing. With a fear that she might lose “the girls,” she takes them out for one last hurrah. And does Valerie succeed? Is there a “happy ending”? Come see the show to find out! This adventurous solo show follows Valerie’s journey to seek her own “hulk-like” strength to find her superhero within to become a two-time cancer survivor. An empowering and true story of inspiration that’s been touring the globe, with plenty of humor—guaranteed!

Valerie “hulked out” on cancer. Her solo play is a celebration of being comfortable in one’s own skin, of embracing and accepting one’s own body—no matter the shape or size. And her performances coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. Her comical take is sure to have audience members laughing out loud, to capture their emotions, and to inspire them to find their own inner superheroes to help them conquer any adversity in their own lives. The Pink Hulk is a true testament to the power we have within to fight back any adversity in life—to never give up and always have hope!

“My show is not just about fighting cancer; it has a universal message of hope and empowerment,” Valerie said. And after all, a cancer diagnosis means only one thing: Time to get laid! Valerie has been performing worldwide in 26 different theater venues since its debut in 2016, garnering rave reviews and winning several awards including The WOW award in Sweden’s Gothenburg Fringe Festival.

The Pink Hulk is co-presented by the Theatre at the 14th Street Y. Tech Director: Emily Anderson; Public Relations: Paul Siebold/Off Off PR.

Tickets are $25. Students/Seniors/Special interest groups: $15. For more information, visit Theater at the 14th Street Y or call 646-395-4310. All tickets are subject to a $2.99 servicing fee.

The runtime is 75 minutes with no intermission and mature content, plus a 20-minute talkback.

Eight performances will be staged on the following schedule: Tuesday, October 8th at 1:00 p.m.; Thursday, October 10th at 7:30 p.m. (Opening Night Reception); Friday, October 11th at 11:00 a.m.; Friday, October 11th at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, October 12th at 1:00 p.m.; Saturday, October 12th at 7:30 p.m. (Special Guest Panel Talkback); Sunday, October 13th at 1:00 p.m.; and Sunday, October 13th at 5:00 p.m.

Valerie David (playwright/performer/producer) wrote the autobiographical comedic drama The Pink Hulk as a two-time cancer survivor to express the empowerment she felt being able to find humor and superhero inner strength going through two bouts of cancer—first Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (1999) and then Stage II Breast Cancer (2014-2015), 15 years later. She is a true superhero. Valerie raises money through The Pink Hulk performances for domestic and international cancer organizations. She is currently developing her new solo show Baggage from BaghDAD about her father and his family fleeing Iraq in 1941 from religious persecution—and how their survival shaped who she is today.

New York Butoh Institute Festival 19

October 10-27, 2019

at Theater for the New City

New York Butoh Institute presents the New York Butoh Institute Festival 19 from Thursday, October 10 through Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Theater for the New City. This year will mark the 60th anniversary of the Japanese performance art form butoh.

Curated by New York Butoh Institute’s founder Vangeline, the Festival will consist of an exciting program of Butoh workshops and masterclasses, as well as seven nights of groundbreaking performances presented at Theater for the New City. The festival will conclude on Sunday, October 27 with a lecture and short film celebrating the founder of butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata, and the 60 years of this historical and revolutionary art form as it continues to evolve into the 21st century.

The bold butoh performances being presented during the festival will feature 14 female dancers from Japan, Colombia, Norway, Italy, Germany, France, and the U.S. One of the pieces, Hijikata, Mon Amour, will be performed by Vangeline as an homage to butoh founder Tatsumi Hijikata. A highlight of the piece will be the costume Vangeline will wear: an exact replica of the bold red costume Tatsumi Hijikata wore in his legendary butoh performance of Tatsumi Hijikata and The Japanese-Revolt of the Flesh in 1968.

Thanks to a loan from the Tatsumi Hijikata Archives and a Janet Arnold Award from the Society of Antiquaries of London, the Festival is able to showcase the replica of this iconic costume worn by Tatsumi Hijikata in Revolt of the Flesh. Hijikata’s costume remains a totem for butoh-it holds secrets of the avant-garde art form.

Much like butoh itself, it was born at the confluence of East and West. This costume chronicles the evolution of postmodern art in Japan. The Festival will close with a short film of Tatsumi Hijikata in his 1968 solo, and a lecture with costume expert Todd Thomas who recreated the costume, and who will discuss his process, shedding light on how the original costume was designed and constructed. Prior to and during the presentation, the replica will be on display for audience members to see.

The New York Butoh Festival 19 will take place at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue, NYC. Thursday through Saturday October 17-19 and October 24-26 at 8pm, Sunday October 20 at 3pm, Sunday October 27 special event lecture at 3pm. Tickets are $18-$20, and can be purchased by phone at (212) 254-1109 or online at https://butohfest-19.eventbrite.com/. The lecture on Sunday, October 27 is free and open to the public.

Artists Featured:

Eri Chian (Osaka, Japan); Mari Osanai, (Aomori, Japan), Tove-Elena Nicolaysen (Chile/Norway), Salome Kokoladze (Georgia), Sindy Butz (Germany), Katherine Adamenko (USA), Madelyn Sher (USA), Angela Newsham (Hawai-USA), Melissa Lohman (Italy), Margherita Tisato (Italy), Yazmin Gonzalez (USA), Vangeline, (France), Lauren Farber (USA) and Brenda Polo (Colombia).

VANGELINE THEATER/NEW YORK BUTOH INSTITUTE aims to preserve the legacy and integrity of Japanese Butoh while carrying the art form well into the future. The unique art of Butoh originated in post- World War II Japan as a reaction to the loss of identity caused by the westernization of Japanese culture, as well as a realization that ancient Japanese performing traditions no longer spoke to a contemporary audience. One of the major developments in contemporary dance in the latter half of the 20th century, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique performing art form that is both controversial and universal in its expression. The Vangeline Theater is home to the New York Butoh Institute, dedicated to the advancement of Butoh in the 21st century. www.vangeline.com

Vangeline is a teacher, dancer, and choreographer specializing in the Japanese postwar avant-garde movement form Butoh. She is the artistic director of the Vangeline Theater (New York), a dance company firmly rooted in the tradition of Japanese Butoh while carrying it into the 21st century, and the founder of the New York Butoh Institute. Her work has been heralded in publications such as The New York Times (“captivating”), Los Angeles
Times, (“moves with the clockwork deliberation of a practiced Japanese Butoh artist”) and LA Weekly, to name a few. More recently her solo “Butoh Beethoven: Eclipse” received critical acclaim from the Ballet Review.

Vangeline is a 2018 NYFA/ NYSCA Artist Fellow in Choreography. She is also the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance’s Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award. Film projects include a starring role alongside actors James Franco and Winona Ryder in the 2012 feature film The Letter, written and directed by Jay Anania, She has performed with/for Grammy Award-winning artists SKRILLEX and Esperanza Spalding. She is the author of a forthcoming book about butoh and looks forward to curating the second New York Butoh Institute Festival 19 this October.

THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY (TNC) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning community cultural center that is known for its high artistic standards and widespread community service. One of New York’s most prolific theatrical organizations, TNC produces 30-40 premieres of new American plays per year, at least 10 of which are by emerging and young playwrights. Many influential theater artists of the last quarter century have found TNC’s Resident Theater Program instrumental to their careers, among them Sam Shepard, Moises Kaufman, Richard Foreman, Charles Busch, Maria Irene Fornes, Miguel Piñero, Jean-Claude van Itallie, Vin Diesel, Oscar Nuñez, Laurence Holder, Romulus Linney and Academy Award winners Tim Robbins and Adrien Brody. TNC also presents plays by multi-ethnic/multi-disciplinary theater companies who have no permanent home. Among the well-known companies that have been presented by TNC are Mabou Mines, the Living Theater, Bread and Puppet Theater, the San Francisco Mime Troupe, and COBU, the Japanese women’s drumming, and dance group. TNC also produced the Yangtze Repertory Company’s 1997 production of Between Life and Death, which was the only play ever produced in America by Gao Xingjian before he won the 2000 Nobel Prize for Literature. TNC seeks to develop theater audiences and inspire future theater artists from the often-overlooked low-income minority communities of New York City by producing minority writers from around the world and by bringing the community into theater and theater into the community through its many free festivals.

Breathing with Strangers

a site-specific, multidisciplinary performance
at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden

October 12, 2019

The CUNY Dance Initiative and Kinesis Project dance theatre will present the site-specific dance performance Breathing with Strangers on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at 2pm and 4pm, at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at https://snug-harbor.org/pass/.

Melissa Riker/Kinesis Project dance theatre’s newest large-scale, outdoor performance, Breathing with Strangers, is a ragged, sweeping and surprising love-song to New York City. Dancers appear and disappear as the choreography twists around and within the levels, buildings, and hillsides of Snug Harbor’s Shinbone Alley. This project invites the audience to witness, interact, and follow the performance — and consider how generous moments between strangers can occur.

Kinesis Project dance theatre is led by New York City-based choreographer Melissa Riker, who emerged as a strong performance and creative voice in the dance and circus worlds during the 1990’s. Through Kinesis Project, Riker is democratizing dance by placing large-scale dance theatre in public spaces. Kinesis Project often works with urban renewal organizations such as HighLine Network members, Friends of Waterfront Seattle, or institutions like the South Street Seaport or Queens Botanical Garden.

Kinesis Project’s performance is the culmination of a residency at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden in partnership with the CUNY Dance Initiative and the College of Staten Island.

“This season’s PASS performances at Snug Harbor explore the depths of time, memory, and ritual, opening up exciting spatial and sonic possibilities through movement and performance. Kinesis Project dance theatre, led by CUNY Dance Initiative artist-in-residence Melissa Riker, activates the richness of our historic campus by staging a site-specific performance in Shinbone Alley,” said Melissa West, Vice President of Curation, Visual & Performing Arts at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden.

Breathing with Strangers is made possible in part with funding from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation and administered by LMCC.

ABOUT THE COMPANY’S LAST SHOW:

“Large scale and transformative, Kinesis Project took on the space between an urban backdrop and the natural world beyond in Traces of Us. From their scattered shouts over the noise of the Alaskan Way Viaduct to their tight gathering at the waterfront edge, gesturing at the sunset, the dancers delighted and awed throughout.” – Seattle Dances

Gia Kourlas, The New York Times wrote about the company’s recent piece:
“Melissa Riker explores ideas about how vulnerability exists both in people and in structures; it comes to life within an immersive environment of movement and whispers.”

Melissa Riker is Artistic Director and Choreographer of Kinesis Project dance theatre. She is a New York City dancer and choreographer who emerged as a strong performance and creative voice as the NYC dance and circus worlds combined during the 90s. Riker’s dances and aesthetic layer her training as a classical dancer, martial artist, theatre choreographer and aerial performer. She creates dances on site – and in context. Riker invents large-scale outdoor performances and spontaneous moments of dance for individuals and corporate clients. Audiences and critics have called Riker’s work “a Marx Brothers’ routine with soul,” “A movable feast.” And from The New York Times, her choreography is: “comically acrobatic, gracefully classical, visually arresting.”

Kinesis Project is a dance organization that produces dance concerts, facilitates educational programs and creates site-specific performances with diverse communities. A company at the forefront of the international discussion of placemaking, art engagement and the cultural imperative of art in public space, Kinesis Project dance theatre invents large scale, space-changing, breath-taking experiences.

Since 2005, Kinesis Project’s work has been experienced in San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, Vermont, Florida and in New York City at such venerable venues as Danspace Project, Judson Church, Joyce Soho, The Minskoff Theatre, The Cunningham Studio, West End Theatre and Dixon Place.  In 2019, the company’s work will be experienced in Seattle, Brooklyn, NY, Riverside Park, supported by New York City Parks, and in Snug Harbor Cultural Center on Staten Island. The company dances outside in sculpture gardens, universities, and annually since 2006 in Battery Park’s Bosque Gardens and The Cloisters Lawn as well as hosting more than 30 surprise performances all over New York City and the tri-state area as an element of the company’s earned income and outreach programming with volunteer populated flashmobs. Residencies include: Earthdance 2006, Omi International Arts Center 2008, Kaatsbaan International Dance Center 2011, TheaterLab 2014, Adelphi University 2014. Ms. Riker is a 2016, 2017 and 2019 CUNY Dance Initiative Residency Fellow, 2015 LMCC Community Arts Fund grantee, 2019 Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Grantee. She has been commissioned by The Brooklyn Botanic Garden for a surprise large-scale work and performances of her work Secrets and Seawalls at Omi International Arts Center, Long House Reserve, Gateway National Park in partnership with Rockaways Artist Alliance. Ms. Riker has received commissions from Carson Fox and the Ephemeral Festival in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 for large-scale outdoor events, NYU in 1998, for an outdoor work long before “flash mob” was coined, 2006 and 2008 grants from the Puffin Foundation for her work Community Movements, a dance work with community volunteers, Fellowships from the Dodge Foundation, Space Grant Residencies from 92nd St Y, The New 42nd St Studio, Gibney Dance Center, and The Joyce Theatre Foundation, and grants from The Bowick Family Trust and John C. Robinson to support the continued work of Kinesis Project dance theatre.

Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden is the result of more than four decades of restoration and development to convert a 19th century charitable rest home for sailors to a regional arts center, botanical gardens, and public park. It is a place where history, architecture, gardens, agriculture, visual and performing arts, and education come together to provide a dynamic experience for all ages. Snug Harbor consists of 28 buildings, fourteen distinctive botanical gardens, a two acre urban farm, wetlands and park land on a unique, free, open campus. Six of Snug Harbor’s original structures were the first designated landmarks for New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1965, including the majestic Main Hall (built in 1833) and Music Hall (built in 1892), one of the oldest concert halls in New York City. Fourteen distinctive gardens spread across the campus and include the celebrated New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden and the Richmond County Savings Foundation Tuscan Garden. Snug Harbor offers programs and attractions to benefit the residents of Staten Island and of New York. It is home to the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, Staten Island Museum, Staten Island Children’s Museum, Noble Maritime Collection, Art Lab, Children’s Harbor Montessori School, and Staten Island Conservatory of Music. Snug Harbor is proud to be a distinguished Smithsonian affiliate.

OF 2019 NEW YORK CITY COLUMBUS DAY PARADE

Chairman of Ferragamo USA to Lead the 75th Annual Columbus Day Parade Up Fifth Avenue on October 14, 2019

NEW YORK – June 20, 2019 – The Columbus Citizens Foundation announced today that Massimo Ferragamo, the Chairman of Ferragamo USA, has been named Grand Marshal of the 75th annual Columbus Day Parade. Mr. Ferragamo is a proud Italian, who divides his time between Italy and the USA, and is deeply involved in the Ferragamo business started by his father in California in the 1920’s.

The annual Columbus Day parade, the largest celebration of Italian-American heritage and culture in the United States, will take place on Monday, October 14, 2019, beginning at 11:30 a.m. As Grand Marshal, Mr. Ferragamo will lead dozens of marching bands and floats and over 100 marching groups up the Fifth Avenue parade route, from 44th Street to 72nd Street.

In naming Mr. Ferragamo Grand Marshal, Columbus Citizens Foundation President Marian Pardo praised his success as a prominent Italian business leader and referenced his contributions to philanthropy and community service.

“Massimo’s role as the vanguard of a classic Italian brand makes him the perfect choice to serve as Grand Marshal for our 75th Anniversary of the Columbus Day Parade,” Ms. Pardo said. “And his individual accomplishments in wine-making and the creation of one of the most luxurious getaways in Italy; Castiglion del Bosco, are exceptional. His status as an Italian with roots in both Italy and the USA are perfectly themed to have him lead our Parade as we celebrate our Diamond Anniversary.”

“I am honored and pleased to join the ranks of distinguished Italians and Italian-Americans who have served in this incredibly special role before me,” Mr. Ferragamo said, “The special relationship between Italy and the United States has been at the core of the Ferragamo business since its inception, and I’m so very proud to accept this honor also in memory of my parents Salvatore and Wanda who loved the USA as if it were their second home country.  It is wonderful to be able to celebrate all the creativity and blessings that come with our two great countries working together. My family and I are so excited to march up Fifth Avenue on Columbus Day.”

In addition to the ongoing development of one of the world’s most iconic luxury fashion labels,  Mr. Ferragamo purchased the property Castiglion del Bosco in 2003. “CdB” is one of the 25 wineries who founded the Brunello di Montalcino denomination, and has been producing wine from the early 1900’s. Mr. Ferragamo, together with his wife Chiara, developed Castiglion del Bosco into a 5 star plus luxury resort currently managed by the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts Group.

The tradition of a Columbus Day Parade began when Generoso Pope led a group of Italian Americans from East Harlem to Columbus Circle in 1929. The parade was formalized as an official celebration of Columbus and Italian heritage in 1994, and this year’s event marks its 75th Anniversary.

Past Grand Marshals of New York’s Columbus Day Parade have included: Sophia Loren; Frank Sinatra; Luciano Pavarotti; Lidia Bastianich; Joe DiMaggio; Mario Andretti; Roberto Cavalli and Maria Bartiromo.

Harlem Stage Presents-Dive Deeper: Global Impact of Hip Hop Culture And Music

October 17, 2019

At the Harlem Stage
150 Convent Ave, New York

Using her platform as a US Global Hip Hop Ambassador to disrupt, instigate and inspire, Maimouna Youssef aka MuMu Fresh kicks off her 2nd year residency in conversation sharing the impact of her music and culture globally. Her lyrics land as a rallying cry and a prayer. She has blessed the mic across the globe with dynamic lyricism, powerhouse vocals and messages of liberation.

As our next WaterWorks commissioned artist Jason ‘Timbuktu’ Diakité prepares for the debut of his autobiographical musical, A Drop of Midnight which premiers in Spring 2020, he will share his creative process on becoming one of Sweden’s chart-topping hip hop artist to writing a best-selling novel to creating a theater piece and how a mixtape from Brooklyn traveled across the waters to the tiny village of Lund, Sweden and altered the course of his life forever.

This conversation between MuMu Fresh and Jason ‘Timbuktu’ Diakité dives deep into the alchemical power of hip hop culture and music to move the crowd and transform lives. And who knows what might erupt when you get two fiercely talented MCs in one room.
