Thunderbird American Indian Dancers' 38th Annual Concert - Theater for the New City
February 03, 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.

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.

dreamgirls - 133rd street arts center
Through February 03, 2013 - new york

DREAMGIRLS is a musical based on the show business aspirations and successes of renowned R&B acts: The Supremes, The Shirelles, James Brown and others. The musical is a classic, "rags to riches" tale of three young African American female singers who begin as innocents and ultimately triumph over jealousies, deceptions and a ruthless music industry. The Harlem Repertory Theatre presents an intimate chamber version of DREAMGIRLS with a cast of 10 that will be performed in the heart of Harlem. The twelve-time AUDELCO-nominated Harlem Repertory Theatre is continuing its 2012-2013 season with an encore performance of its well reviewed production of Dreamgirls, performed as an intimate chamber version of the classic R&B musical drama. Ten talented actor/singers bring this dazzling rags to riches story to life in two settings: Act One will be played in the proscenium theatre at the 133rd Street Arts Center, while Act Two will be performed in the semi round with the actors performing onstage and around the audience. Two-time AUDELCO winner, Keith Lee Grant, directed and choreographed the production. Mr. Grant shifts the focus of this iconic musical from flashy sets and costumes to the moment-to-moment emotional development of the characters: from aspiring novices in the 1960s R&B music industry to highly polished –albeit somewhat jaded- international stars.
