Nederlands Dans Theater - The Joyce Theater
Through April 12, 2013 - New York

Nederlands Dans Theater's magnificent dancers perform an evening of two visually startling and provocative pieces created by co-choreographers Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot. Intimately connected, each explores the nature of love. Set to powerfully beautiful Beethoven works -- Piano Concertos Nos. 3 and 4 and to excerpts from Symphony No. 5 -- Sehnsucht (translated as "yearning") begins with two dancers hovering in a cube-like room. At various times, the room spins, turning the side walls into the ceiling and floor, and then the other way around. This spinning room, with the man and woman trapped inside it, serves as a metaphor for an intense love that is both intimate and claustrophic. As more dancers take the stage, this metaphor is extended throughout the piece. The evening concludes with Schmetterling (translated as "butterfly"). A perfect companion piece to Sehnsucht, this work also examines the nature of love, this time perhaps in its most basic form -- that between mother and child. Set to the cynical love songs by indie pop group Magnetic Fields and British composer Max Richter, Schmetterling replaces the melancholy of Sehnsucht with a sly, somewhat humorous take on love.

OLETA ADAMS - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
April 12, 2013 - New York

Since the runaway success of her 1990 platinum-selling album Circle of One and the impassioned hit single "Get Here" (the Brenda Russell composition that became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War), Oleta Adams has inspired a growing legion of fans in the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart via songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music. Her success, nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, has been solidified by four Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy. With nine CDs to her name (including forays into secular, gospel, and Christmas music), worldwide acclaim, and over two-and-a-half million albums sold, Adams's musical odyssey continues both spiritually and creatively. Her most recent release, 2009's Let's Stay Here, is a creative and evocative project with a soulful jazz influence and songs that project many tantalizing thoughts. Producing this album herself a remarkable achievement, and for Adams, it was simply another step in her artistic development. For this consummate artist, composer, producer, and musician, many goals remain on the horizon.

Nini Camps is a vocal force that holds her own in the musical landscape of Antigone Rising. Her voice blends perfectly with the signature style harmonies the band has become known for, while also adding her own unique sound. A first generation Cuban American, Camps originally hails from Miami, Florida. With the addition of Camps as lead singer, Antigone Rising continues to turn heads and gain popularity with their poignant lyrics, catchy melodies and soaring three-part harmonies.

Rough Draft Fridays at APH w/ Dj Rick Wonder & Scottie Cortorreal - The Actor's Playhouse aka APH
April 12, 2013 - New York

Rough Draft Fridays at APH w/ Dj Rick Wonder & Scottie Cortorreal Friday, April 12th, 2013 Each and Every Friday.. Come experience downtown's newest venue.... The Actor's Playhouse aka APH located 100A Seventh Avenue South New York City Between Bleeker and Grove Street Pricing: Everyone free on the Guestlist. Groups of Guys must have a table reservation. Special Packages for Birthdays. For information or table reservations, text Eric Virgil at 917-664-2686 or email info@ericvirgil.com Djs: Rick Wonder and Scottie Cortorreal Music: Open Format, Top 40, House, Hip Hop. Time: 11pm to 4am Dresscode: Dress to impress. Age: Everyone must be 21 and over. This January, 2013, the historic Actors Playhouse was unveiled as a new venue that harkens back to the cutting-edge music and theatre scene of Greenwich Village in the 1950’s. First opened in 1956, as part of the Off-Off Broadway scene that began in Greenwich Village as a reaction to Off-Broadway, the theatre became a favorite of locals including John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, and Al Pacino. In keeping with the space’s theatrical history, each evening will feature an eclectic mix of performances ranging from Cirque de Soleil contortionists, accordion artists, acrobats, violinists, and aliens. Anchored by the experiential curators who control the atmosphere through music, lights , instrumental accompaniments, and performers, the Actor’s Playhouse is a completely fresh concept in a sea of mundane New York nightlife. Paramount to the project was preserving the historic spirit of the space and creating a functional design that incorporates the best lighting and sound while parlaying that nostalgic era. Designer Antonio Di Oronzo Bluarch and Historical Architect Juergen Wessely were brought in to fulfill this delicate and challenging task. Entering from the street level, guests will descend the original stairwell that opens into a room that transports them into another time. Warm lighting, curved walls, and luxe natural tones fill the room. Banquets line the rounded walls, creating an amphitheater effect around the center stage. A vast 40-foot bar inviting patrons to move about freely and socialize, adding to the energy of the room. The sheepskin ceilings are undeniably one of the major focuses of the theater’s design.

The majority of the works focus on JJ, Bowland's muse for the past five years. Now eleven years old and on the verge of adolescence, she prepares to face the challenges of adulthood. Upon her tiny frame, weighty universal issues are placed -- questions of identity, pressures of conformity, and ultimately a quest for acceptance.

Shoe Obsession - Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology
Through April 13, 2013 - New York

Shoe Obsession examines our culture's ever-growing fascination with extravagant and fashionable shoes. Accessories used to be just that?secondary to clothing fashions. Today, however, shoes have become the main fashion story, replacing the "It bag" as the most desirable accessory. High-heeled shoes "the fashion shoes of the 21st century" have become so tall that even a 4-inch heel is considered "low." Shoe Obsession features over 150 examples of the most extraordinary shoe styles of the 21st-century, highlighting the new concepts, constructions, materials, and types of embellishment that have positioned shoes at the height of fashion. The popularity of designer shoes has grown rapidly. The television series Sex in the City, which was broadcast from 1998 to 2004, is often credited with helping to launch the cult for designer shoes. Who can forget Carrie Bradshaw's Manolo Blahnik pumps ? or her assertion of "a woman's right to shoes." Blahnik's popularity paved the way for other high-end shoe designers, a number of whom have become celebrities in their own right. Christian Louboutin's undeniably sexy shoes?with their signature red soles?have established him as one of the best-known footwear designers in the world.

Larry Lederman, landscape photographer and member of NYBG's Board of Advisors, has spent years walking the garden grounds to observe and photograph trees and vistas in all seasons and at all times of day.

Forrest, Arthur Ross vice president for horticulture and living collections at the garden.

Lederman captures their grandeur in hundreds of stunning images and portrays their diversity with photographs that reveal the trees in myriad fascinating perspectives: in landscape views that convey the garden's genius loci; portraits illustrating the architecture and profound visual impact of select trees; remarkable details of flowers, fruit, leaves, and bark; and impressionistic images, abstract in character yet beautiful in composition.
