Thunderbird American Indian Dancers' 38th Annual Concert - Theater for the New City
February 01, 2013 - East Village

Thunderbird American Indian Dancers will hold their 38th annual Dance Concert and Pow Wow at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue, from January 25 to February 3, 2013. The troupe's appearances benefit college funds for needy Native American students. The company's Pow-Wows have been presented annually as a two-week event by TNC since 1976, with the box office donated to these funds. There will be dances, stories and traditional music from the Iroquois and Native Peoples of the Northwest Coast, the Southwest, the Plains, and the Arctic regions. Between 15 and 20 dancers will assemble for the event. Highlights will include Storytelling, a Hoop Dance, a Caribou Dance (from the Inuit people of Alaska), a Buffalo Dance (from the Hopi people), a Grass Dance and Jingle Dress Dance (from the Northern Plains people), a Stomp Dance (from the Southeastern tribes), and a Shawl Dance (from the Oklahoma tribes). In the final section of the program, the audience will be invited to join in the Round Dance, a friendship dance. After matinees, the cast will remain in the theater to personally meet the children attending and be photographed with them. This component of the show was inspired by the troupe's school residencies. A Pow-Wow is more than just a spectator event: it is a joyous reunion for native peoples nationwide and an opportunity for the non-Indian community to voyage into the philosophy and beauty of Native culture. Traditionally a gathering and sharing of events, Pow-Wows have come to include spectacular dance competitions, exhibitions, and enjoyment of traditional foods. Pageantry is an important component of the event, and all participants are elaborately dressed. Most dances are performed in the traditional Circle, which represents a unity of peoples. There is a wealth of cultural information encoded in the movements of each dance. More than ten distinct tribes will be represented in the performance. Throughout the performance, all elements are explained in depth through detailed introductions by the troupe's Director and Emcee Louis Mofsie (Hopi/Winnebago). An educator, Mofsie plays an important part in the show by his ability to present a comprehensive view of native culture. Native American craft items will be displayed in the TNC lobby. The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers are the oldest resident Native American dance company in New York. The troupe was founded in 1963 by a group of ten Native American men and women, all New Yorkers, who were descended from Mohawk, Hopi, Winnebago and San Blas tribes. Some were in school at the time; all were "first generation," meaning that their parents had been born on reservations. They founded the troupe to keep alive the traditions, songs and dances they had learned from their parents, and added to their repertoire from other Native Americans living in New York and some who were passing through. Within three or four years, they were traveling throughout the continental U.S., expanding and sharing their repertoire and gleaning new dances on the reservations. (A number of Thunderbird members are winners of Fancy Dance contests held on reservations, where the standard of competition is unmistakably high.) Members of the Thunderbirds range in professions from teachers to hospital patient advocates, tree surgeons and computer engineers. The Thunderbird-TNC collaboration began in 1975, when Crystal Field directed a play called "The Only Good Indian." For research, Ms. Field lived on a Hopi reservation for three weeks. In preparation for the project, she met Louis Mofsie, and they made plans for a Pow Wow to celebrate the Winter Solstice. The event has continued annually to this day.

"I like to make music that means something to people - nowadays there are so many categories and labels, I just wanna make music that matters!" Musiq first burst onto the scene in 2000 with his Platinum debut album, Aijuswanaseing (I Just Want to Sing), which included the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop single "Just Friends." His second single "Love" spent 22 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and has been described by many as a classic. Musiq's 2002 album, Juslisen (Just Listen), debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts and quickly went Platinum with hit singles "Halfcrazy" and "Dontchange." By the drop of his third album, Soulstar, in 2003, Musiq had established himself as one of the top R&B and soul artists of his time.

Loren Benjamin - Rockwood Music Hall

Wayne Shorter Quartet and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Carnegie Hall - Carnegie Hall
February 01, 2013 - New York

In the year that jazz legend Wayne Shorter turns eighty, Orpheus turns forty. Both are in top form and are collaborating on Shorter’s original compositions: Pegasus, The Three Marias, and Prometheus Unbound. A self-governing organization, the Grammy Award-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra performs diverse orchestral repertoire using chamber-music ensemble techniques. By performing without a conductor and integrating musicians into virtually every facet of the group, Orpheus empowers its members and infuses performances with unparalleled energy. Wayne Shorter is one of the most influential saxophonists and composers in the pantheon of modern music, let alone jazz. Shorter has been regarded as a pioneer since his emergence in the 1950s. His trajectory has restlessly embodied continual exploration and unencumbered momentum. Tom Moon of NPR has noted, “At a time when most musicians are content to collect the lifetime-achievement awards and honorary degrees, Shorter is creating not just some of the most intense music of his career but some of the most intense improvised music available.” Shorter’s long-running quartet includes pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci, and drummer Brian Blade.

tINI + Justin Martin - Highline Ballroom
February 01, 2013 - New York

It took tINI only a few years of playing in clubs to become one of Germany's most highly acclaimed female artists in techno and house music. Her involvement with rhythms and beats started at the age of 7, when tINI, who is originally from Munich, began playing drums, while the curiosity and passion for sounds finally led her to first production attempts on her brother's Atari. While her general interest in music has been aroused by new romantics, wave and grunge, her first dj adventures started with underground hip hop to rap. "That's right", her production debut on the Desolat X Sampler in 2009, became a timeless groove monster with high profile DJs worldwide and a perfect proof that future is looking bright for this grand dame of deep twisted tech funk. The most significant highlight of this unique career has been saved for autumn 2011, when her debut artist album gets released on her label homebase Desolat. As tINI's life is ruled by magic moments and deep acquaintanceships, her first longplayer has been named after her best friend "Tessa", who was the first person to introduce her to the colourful, sometimes dreamlike world of Ibiza, where tINI spent the summer of 2010 and produced a majority of her album.

By connecting the countercultural activism of the 1960’s and 1970’s to the moment of Fluxus, an international network of artists, composers and designers noted for blending different artistic media and disciplines in the 1960s, the exhibition features over 170 objects, documents, ephemera, personal items, and films. These works were created by a variety of Fluxus artists, specifically focusing on the Fluxus founder and self-appointed "chairman," George Maciunas (1931-1978, graduated from The Cooper Union in 1952). The exhibition will include rarely exhibited early work by Maciunas, such as his self-portraits, as well as the entire Atlas of Russian History (1953), along with Fluxus manifestos, charts, interviews, and Maciunas’ plans for artist housing in SoHo. Anything can substitute art: George Maciunas in SoHo was created in collaboration with The Jonas Mekas Visual Arts Center, Vilnius, Lithuania, and The School of Art at The Cooper Union.

Ms. Andreas first captured the hearts of Broadway theatregoers as Eliza Doolittle in the 20th anniversary production of My Fair Lady, for which she won the Theatre World Award.

Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, and later became a STOMP! cast member. For its 15th Anniversary season, the company arrives at The Joyce with two New York City premieres. Fireweather, set to "The Mission of Virgil," a Charles Wuorinen score for two pianos inspired by Dante's Inferno, is informed both by the literary roots of the music and by visual art, ranging from the vibrant watercolors of William Blake to the grotesque engravings of Gustave Dore. The second premiere, Left Exit, examines spirituality, faith, and religion and includes recorded spoken word drawn from texts that illuminate the clash between secular reasoning and organized religion.

The Suit - Brooklyn Academy of Music
Through February 02, 2013 - Fort Greene

The renowned Peter Brook—whose 1987 production of The Mahabharata inaugurated the BAM Majestic Theater (now the BAM Harvey Theater)—returns with a moving, music-filled adaptation of South African writer Can Themba's story The Suit. A wife caught in the act, her lover fleeing the scene, his suit left behind. It's the perfect recipe for a husband's punishing decree: go on with business as usual, he says to his spouse, but take the suit everywhere you go as a constant reminder of your betrayal. Featuring an innovative staging that integrates musicians directly into the action, Brook's tender production—fresh from sold-out runs in Paris and London—makes Themba's tightly crafted fable sing. A hummed "Strange Fruit," African melodies, and Schubert lieder thicken the air of this apartheid-era summer in which a shared wound was not allowed to heal.

Museum as Hub: Walking Drifting Dragging - New Museum
Through February 03, 2013 - New York

"Walking Drifting Dragging" is a one-month-long presentation of works by four emerging artists/collectives: Eunji Cho (Seoul), Ellie Ga (New York), Paulo Nazareth (Belo Horizonte, Brazil), and Mriganka Madhukaillya and Sonal Jain of Desire Machine Collective (Guwahati, India). The artists share a common preoccupation with walking, roaming, and drifting--moving slowly, close to the ground--and documenting their travels within highly personal terms that blend cartography with memory. All four have embarked on epic journeys, such as crossing an entire continent on foot or floating through the darkness of the Arctic for months--each one motivated by a different impulse or political perspective. Collectively, the artists work against contemporary notions of immediacy and access in a globalized world where any data point appears to be a search away and other cultures can seem legible with a quick round-trip. Their works dramatize distance between countries and cultures, across borders and time zones, to demonstrate how layered and complex a local stretch of terrain can be. "Walking Drifting Dragging" is presented in collaboration with the Museum as Hub and organized by Lauren Cornell, Curator of the 2015 Triennial, Digital Projects, and Museum as Hub.
