Cities in Crisis: Ecological Transformations - Cooper Union- The Great Hall
February 25, 2013 - New York

On the one hand, cities can be the epitome of sustainability, reaping the benefits of proximity, efficiency, and innovation. On the other hand, they can be graveyards of dreams and sources of contamination. In Cities In Crisis: Ecological Transformations, six lectures at The Cooper Union, Dr. Steward Pickett, past President of the Ecological Society of America and a plant ecologist with the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, will present an integrated view of cities from an ecological perspective and explore the frontiers of promoting the transformation of a more sustainable urban trajectory. February 11: Globalization and the Changing City - What is urbanism? What is urban from an ecological perspective? How is the urban reality evolving in a global era? What is the nature of contemporary urban crisis? How can that crisis be met as an opportunity? February 18: Cities as Ecosystems - How do ecologists think about cities? What ecological processes occur in cities? What’s wrong with the idea of open space in cities? February 25: Natural Disturbance and the City - How common is natural disturbance in the urban context? What is the nature of natural hazard in cities? How does this play out in terms of social and other kinds of vulnerability? March 4: From Sanitary to Sustainable City - How did the “sanitary city” solve social and environmental problems? What are the limits to the sanitary strategy? How does the sustainable city envision solving the problems of the sanitary city, or even of cities that are created from scratch? March 11: Ecology for Urban Design - What does ecology have to say to urban design? What ecological principles underwrite ecological urban design? How do the ethics of sustainability shape ecological application in cities? March 18: A Land Ethic for the Urban Era - Does Aldo Leopold’s ethical viewpoint apply to cities? Is there a problem with our contrast between wilderness and “urbanness”? How do we facilitate the benefits of cities and incorporate them into ethical urban thinking?

Fleeing the vicious pogroms of his homeland, he has left his sought refuge in the land of the free. Able to speak only Yiddish, alone in the midst of a staunchly Christian community, he begs for shelter. Over the next 30 years, he makes a home and raises a family in this tiny town. The Immigrant is the story of a young Russian-Jewish couple and the local couple that take them in, as religion meets religion, culture meets culture, fear meets fear, and love meets love.

The family is still the only Jewish family in this isolated country town.

As Dave encounters the remoteness of his community, and the even further distance from the faith of his father, his entire family faces the legacy left behind by their immigrant forebears: What do the Jews believe?

Midnight Moment: A Digital Gallery - Digital signs in Times Square; Best Viewing from Duffy Square and/or Military Plaza
Through February 28, 2013 - New York

A dazzling visual valentine will be shared with New Yorkers and visitors to the Crossroads of the World this Valentine’s Day season as part of a synchronized program on over fifteen of the largest digital signs in Times Square. Tracey Emin’s work, I Promise To Love You, premiered just before midnight on February 1st and is playing throughout the month as part of the “Midnight Moment,” a presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. s[edition], the leading platform used by the worlds most recognized artists to distribute art digitally, has been instrumental in working directly with Emin to bring this project to life. As one of Britain's most celebrated contemporary artists, Tracey Emin's moving series of neonworks, I Promise To Love You, is comprised of six written love messages animated especially for the “Midnight Moment.” In this unique moving image, the glowing words—made of neon lights—slowly spell themselves out, as if being written by a ghost or an invisible presence. The gentle electric pulsing of the lettering gradually builds into a powerful potent red, leaving the viewer in no doubt about the power of love. Times Square, famous for its neon lighting displays, is the perfect venue for the premiere for Emin’s animation. The “Midnight Moment” is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night. The program, formerly known as “Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery,” premiered in May 2012 and is organized and supported by the Times Square Advertising Coalition in partnership with Times Square Arts, the public art program for the Times Square Alliance, with additional partners of participating sign holders and artists. Each night, Times Square becomes a digital art gallery through dazzling visuals on select billboards and newsstands. Every show begins at 11:57pm with a "countdown" that signals the start of the 3 minute nightly presentation. Content changes monthly; selected works are announced in the weeks preceding the start of a new show as are the exact signs participating in that month's selection.

Much Ado About Nothing - 133rd Street Arts Center
Through March 02, 2013 - New York

Wednesday & Thursday @ 7:30pm Friday & Saturday @ 8pm Saturday @ 3pm / Sundays @ 5pm $20 discounted tickets are available through January 31st for select performances. Love. War. Conspiracy. Sex. Betrayal. Death. Could all these things truly amount to Nothing? In Shakespeare’s beloved comedy Much Ado About Nothing, Don Pedro and his men return victoriously from war to the house of Leonato, Governor of Messina. Proven in battle, Claudio proposes to Leonato's dutiful daughter Hero, to the dismay of his comrade, Benedick, who wittily battles with the Lady Beatrice on the demerits of love. The stage is set for merry conflict as those who jest at love are caught in a hilarious conspiracy to make them fall in love. Meanwhile a sinister plot brews to unmake Claudio and Hero's nuptials, setting in motion a series of events that challenge loyalties, test character, and examine the fickleness of life and love. Incorporating a vibrant and diverse cast, Snapped Productions deconstructs outdated female archetypes, challenges masculine stereotypes, and advances the classic ideas about male/female relationships, seen here through a modern lens. Much Ado About Nothing is exactly that—the whimsy of human beings taking what should be simple – love – and making it absurdly (and often times, laughably) complex. Gregory Couba directs a cast of 18 including Harpreet Chaggar, Jon Dalin, Jeffrey Delano Davis, Ratnesh Dubey, Ann Gulian, Matt Kelley, Mary-Rose Mack, Norihito Moriya, Keith R. Oliver, Al-nisa Petty, Robby Ramos, Donny Repsher, Jon Adam Ross, Gonçalo Ruivo, Caleb Schaaf, Peter Van Derick, Gary Warchola and Tina Ward.
