Thinking Outside the Box: European Cabinets, Caskets, and Cases from the Permanent Collection (1500-1900) - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through August 31, 2011 -

This installation features a selection of one hundred examples of important boxes, caskets, and small chests from the Metropolitan Museum's European Sculpture and Decorative Arts Department. For centuries, boxes, caskets, cabinets, and chests played an important role in everyday life. Ranging from strongboxes to travel cases and from containers for tea or tobacco to those for the storage of toiletries or silverware, these lidded pieces were made in a large variety of shapes and sizes, and of many different materials. The form and decoration of these objects not only reflect changes in social customs and manners but also follow the stylistic developments in Europe over four hundred years. Pieces made of tortoiseshell, carved and veneered wood, porcelain, hard stones and natural substances, embroidery, various metals, leather, enamel, pastiglia, and straw will be included. These objects, some of which have not been on display for years, were much more than mere containers and often became precious works of art, collected in their own right.

Smooth Cruise featuring Pieces Of A Dream - Spirit Cruises
August 31, 2011 -

Join Pieces of a Dream on Wednesday, August 31st for a memorable close to another fantastic Smooth Cruise Season! Keyboardist James Lloyd, drummer Curtis Harmon, and former bassist Cedric Napoleon, founded Pieces of a Dream in Philadelphia in 1975 when the principal members were all teenagers. Lloyd, Harmon and Napoleon, were (and still are) managed by the Harmon's father and uncle, Danny and Bill Harmon. Originally somewhat jazz-oriented, the group has mostly emphasized R&B, although a few jazz numbers are typically included in their performances. Their name is based on Pieces of Dreams, a cover tune by Stanley Turrentine that the group performed. They first started playing throughout the Tri-State area, and were soon featured on Temple University's pioneering jazz radio station, WRTI-FM. Long before the "Young Lions" era of Wynton Marsalis, Lloyd and Harmon were swinging so hard as teenagers that the great Count Basie once proclaimed them "a tough act to follow."

A story of adventure and hope, "Close to the Bone" is a fictional adaptation of the novel "Blue Pariah" and other works by Guillermo Yuscarán. Told by its characters, this solo show, acted by Mario Quesada explores the mysteries of life, death, and miracle from the streets of California to the mountains of Honduras. A puppy is bought from a Brooklyn ex-boxer in Southern California in 1969. The puppy, Brown, grows up to compete in boxing matches with other dogs for rule of the sidewalks in Isla Vista. Brown becomes revered as a champion by his fellow dogs in their society, a fearless rebel who defines his own path. But by the late 1970s, the world around his human family has been changed by the Vietnam War, social unrest, and suburban apathy. Seeking a more meaningful and simpler way of life, Brown's human master, Bill, embarks with his young son and dog on a one year trip to live in Honduras. Living in its mountains and villages and making new friends along the way, they begin to discover their unique place in the world and explore "the universe of the impossible dream on foot." Guillermo Yuscarán (William Lewis) is both a writer and primitivist painter. He has lived in Honduras periodically for more than three decades and currently resides in Santa Lucia, a small village outside of the capital city of Tegucigalpa. A former Fulbright scholar, he holds a PhD in Hispanic Studies from the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Felix Ivanov) and "The Three Penny Opera" (Columbia Stages). He wrote and performed his first solo piece, "Ya Get The Picture," for the Howl Arts Festival at the Connelly Center.

Quesada has also performed with groups such as Columbia Stages, the MFA Directors of Columbia, and The Nature Theater of Oklahoma. He holds a BA in English and Drama from Catholic University in Washington, DC. He worked for four years with the group of Russian and Georgian artists in Washington DC formerly known as the Stanislavsky Theatre.

'Love Masters' - Theater for the New City
Through August 31, 2011 - New York

"Love Masters" (world premiere) created by Erick Paiva-Nouchi. Cabaret Theater - Sunday, August 14 at 7:00PM; Wednesday, August 17 at 9:00PM; Thursday, August 18 at 9:00PM; Tuesday, August 23 at 9:00PM; Wednesday, August 24 at 9:00PM; Thursday, August 25 at 9:00PM; Monday, August 29 at 9:00PM; Tuesday, August 30 at 9:00; Wednesday, August 31 at 9:00PM. Running Time: 70 minutes | Tickets: $12. "Love Masters" is a multimedia performance art play centered around a seventy minute tantric massage session with the Love Masters, the tantric massage master and his tantric massage slave. During the 70-minute session, the audience will have the unique opportunity to presence a spiritual, yet highly sensual and at times erotic connection between master and slave, in a piece that aims to urge the audience to focus on the present moment. Music, visual images and narrative mixed with free-style poetry will serve as the "brain" of the piece. These elements will bring forth the worries, anxieties, thoughts, fears and memories (good and bad) that invade the minds of the master and slave as they surrender to each other during the session, revealing the "soul" of each character. These revelations, conceptualized around each one of the seven chakras in our body, are all true events, the real stories behind the master and slave. This way, the master and slave share their own humanity with the audience in a naked, honest and humble way, while they journey together in search of divine light. The movement of the master as he "dances" through the massage, and of the videographer who will be capturing the massage session sending live video feed onto the screen(s) onstage; plus the natural physical interaction between slave and master, will add to the dynamics of movement and intimacy of the play. Born in Cusco and raised in Lima, Peru, Erick Paiva-Nouchi has spent half his life between two continents, the Americas and Asia. As a third-generation Japanese-Peruvian, Paiva-Nouchi at the age of seventeen, joined the thousands of Japanese-Peruvians (including his parents and sister) who left Peru in the early 1990s to work in factories across Japan. In 2006, he decided to move to New York City to pursue a career in the performing arts. At Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, Paiva-Nouchi discovered his creative path as an experimental dancer and performance artist and adopted a new name, Rico Noguchi, as his professional name as a choreographer (retaining Erick Paiva-Nouchi as his performing name while working in other companies). At the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) he found his third eye: video; medium which he extended to his performances but which also sparked an interest in documentary filmmaking, interest that would grow after being accepted to the School of General Studies at Columbia University. Armed with these new talents, he returned to Japan briefly to stay with his parents and document what life is as an immigrant blue-collar worker in Japan. From this footage, "Mirror of Stone," his first short film, was born. "Mirror of Stone" has been shown at the Globians Film Festival in Germany and obtained an honorary award by the Asian American Research Institute in New York. Paiva-Nouchi then went on to create "Latinos" in Japan, a short film featured on the BBC as part of the BBC's My World competition. As Rico Noguchi, in 2008 he was invited Nicky Paraiso, curator of The Club at La MaMa E.T.C., to perform there. In 2009, he returned to La MaMa as part of La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival, which in turn led him to John McCormack of INTAR Theater, where he developed a full length piece titled "Butoh Rocks!" Paiva-Nouchi joined the dance group The Daisy Spurs after being approached by Bill Coleman, owner of record label and management agency Peace Bisquit. He stayed in The Daisy Spurs until April, 2011. His current piece, "Love Masters," is the first production of his own company ASOBI NY.

Mitzvah on the Hudson - The Hudson River
August 31, 2011 - New York

A second miracle will be taking place on the Hudson River on July 31st. Eleven-year-old Aaron Perl and his father, Mitch, plan to swim the Hudson River at an event dubbed “Mitzvah on the Hudson” to benefit people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Young Aaron overcame his own physical disability when he was born with a congenital short femur that required a painful leg-lengthening surgery when he was six years old. Today, Aaron competes in triathlons with his father, earning first place out of 188 contestants in a recent triathlon. The Perls are supporting AHRC Nassau through their longtime friend, Ally Witt, a 13-year-old who adopted AHRC Nassau for her Mitzvah Project. Witt has raised nearly $6,000 to benefit AHRC’s respite services and it is a cause close to her heart as her uncle resides in an AHRC Nassau residence. AHRC Nassau’s respite services are vital in that they provide emergency placement, a summer sleep-away camp, Camp Loyaltown, in upstate New York, and a Saturday recreation program. As more and more adult children continue to be cared for at home by their aging parents and families, respite services are crucial. The Mitzvah on the Hudson will take place on Sunday, July 31st at 1:00 pm at 99th Street and will end at the 79th Boat Basin. A post-swim reception will be held at the Boat Basin Café. Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information on the swim, please visit:

Dogmouth - Theater for the New City
Through September 01, 2011 - New York

"Dogmouth" (world premiere of a new version) written by John Steppling, directed by Stephan Morrow. Johnson Theater - Sunday, August 21 at 2:00PM; Wednesday, August 24 at 9:00PM; Saturday, August 27 at 5:00PM; Sunday, August 28 at 5:00PM; Wednesday, August 31 at 9:00PM; Thursday, September 1 at 7:00PM. Running Time: 100 minutes | Tickets $12. Does an underground mafia of Vietnam vets really exist hoboing around on the rails? Is it as large and powerful as it is portrayed by journalists, or is it a media creation drawing the heat for every murder on the rails from Arizona to California? And has the leader of this group become a changed man, dedicating himself to his nineteen year old pregnant girlfriend? Or is he an unrepentant racist criminal bent on plotting to murder a rival over a deal that went sour. When he visits a black man - is it to buy a dog or to kill him? John Steppling's play “Dogmouth” gives the spectator a good look at people on the edge. The fact that he also deftly manages to place ruminations on death and dying, the brutality of existence and the survival of the fittest on the streets of Phoenix, not to mention the breeding of dogs - in the middle of it - is what makes this play dark and riveting, taking us far beyond just dog fighting and mysterious murders on the rails. John Steppling was first championed by Robert Egan at The Mark Taper Forum with his play "The Shaper" and the Taper consequently produce Steppling's "The Thrill" in one of its new-works festivals. His characters were from, and remain in, the margins of society. Steppling's other plays include "Teenage Wedding," "The Dream Coast" and "Neck." He also adapted Elmore Leonard's "52 Pickup" for director John Frankenheimer. Steppling mentored Jon Robin Baitz at the beginning of his playwriting career. Steppling has just completed an 11-year stint in Poland (where he taught screenwriting at the Polish National Film School) and created his own adaptation of "King Lear," which he describes as a "sliced-back" and "fairly traditional" version (with Goneril and Regan spoken in Norwegian and the other roles in either Polish or English. ) He wrote a modern day adaptation of "Faust" that was presented at Los Angeles Theater Center in 1998. Steppling is currently Artistic Director of the Gunfighter Nation theater company and had a new play, "Phantom Luck," produced last fall in Los Angeles. Stephan Morrow directed "Trio" by Mario Fratti at Theater for the New City in 2010 and a sequel, "Quartet," also at Theater for the New City in 2011. That production came fast on the heels of his production of "Triangle - The Shirtwaist Triangle Factory Fire" by Jack Gilhooley at 59E59St Theaters. In March 2007, he acted in and directed a staged reading of "The Deer Park or Hollywood Goes to Hell" by Norman Mailer, which Mr. Mailer attended. On the basis of that work, Mailer invited Morrow to co-direct and perform in a film of "The Deer Park." Mr. Mailer passed away before the film could be realized. Morrow's collaboration with Norman Mailer began with his performance as Rod, a stuntman, in "Strawhead - A memory play of Marilyn" at The Actor's Studio. Morrow can be seen in Mailer's cult classic, "Tough Guys Don't Dance," playing the character Stoodie. As Artistic Director and founder of The Great American Play Series, he has resurrected neglected American classics in 'performances on book' with Rebecca DeMornay and Mark Rydell, Barry Primus, Lyle Kessler and Sally Kirkland, Barry Primus, Lyle Kessler, Paul Mazursky, Judith Light, Betsy Von Furstenberg, Peter Riegert and Rosie Perez. Arthur Miller gave his approval for Stephen to work on "Incident at Vichy" in a three-year mission to get it to a major venue. Morrow staged four 'performances on book' with casts that included F. Murray Abraham, Richard Dreyfuss, Fritz Weaver, Peter Weller and Fisher Stevens among others. Recently he put together and hosted a playwrights' symposium, "Are small theaters from Off to Off Off Broadway Becoming an Endangered Species in N.Y.?," at 45 Bleecker which included Israel Horovitz, Murray Schisgal, Stephen Adly Guirgis, Mario Fratti, Diane De Mateo, Richard Vetere and Quincy Long. That symposium turned out to be all too prophetic when 45 Bleecker St. Theater shut down less than four months later.

A Matchbox Theatre," is a frightfully funny exploration of our fear of being buried alive, of dreadful discoveries and of the curious phenomenon of 19th-century "waiting mortuaries." Based on historical and medical facts, this play is tiny, intimate and interactive. Buried Alive is for an adult audience and due to the intimate scale of the show, seating is limited for this intriguing, hysterical and very macabre experience.

'Nuclear Love Affair' - Theater for the New City
Through September 03, 2011 - New York

Running Time: 90 minutes | Tickets $15. In this spectacular multimedia investigation of America in the Atomic Age, unnerving images, rattling rhythms and disturbing text collide with slapstick and highly aggressive physical storytelling to create an erotic pop culture explosion. Focusing on the period of 1941-1969, "Nuclear Love Affair" traces America's obsession with violence through the social and political chain reaction caused by dropping of the atomic bomb. Iconic figures, historical tales and stock film footage are layered with a frenetic music score that combines hits from the era with modern beats to build an expressive and surreal landscape. Featuring Elvis Presley dancing through Vietnam, Charlie Chaplin at Hiroshima, Lucille Ball doing a commercial for an electric chair, and Marilyn Monroe teaching us all how to duck and cover, "Nuclear Love Affair" is a twisted take on the journey of the American Dream. It looks at where we have been, and begs us, "Where do we go from here?" Sanaz Ghajarrahimi (Director and Co-Author) is an Iranian-American director and choreographer. With Built for Collapse, she has directed and choreographed "Orpheus and the Plastic Masquerade" (Galapagos Art Space), "Elephant Man" (Wings Theatre), "Stork and Owl" (Bleecker Street Theater), "Hamlet" (Galapagos Art Space, Grace Exhibition Space) and "Romeo and Juliet" (Access Theater).
