Seven In One Blow, Or The Brave Little Kid - Axis Theatre
December 13, 2013 - West Village

Set just before the holidays on a snowy winter day, Seven in One Blow, or the Brave Little Kid tells the story of a child living in the city who kills seven flies with a single swat and makes a belt emblazoned with "Seven in One Blow" to commemorate the event. The kid travels through the snow and meets numerous colorful characters along the way, including the Scarlet Pimpernel, a pea, December, a witch, an ogre and a princess. Most people think this belt refers to seven people and assign the kid all kinds of difficult tasks based on this faulty presumption. Over the course of the take, invaluable lessons are learned: an ogre finds that you don't always have to show how strong you are to be strong; a girl realizes that when you tease someone, you may be hurting a person who is just like you; and a scary monster understands that because she is loved, she may not be so scary after all. In the end, after a surprise twist, the kid discovers that a parent's love and care has no limits. Adapted from the classic fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm, this interactive winter play is conceived by Axis and directed by Randy Sharp, who also wrote the adaptation and composed the music.

Postcards of the Mezzogiorno: A Photographic Essay of Southern Italy in the Bari Area - Italian American Museum
December 13, 2013 - New York

Friday December 13, 2013, at 6:30 p.m., the Italian American Museum at 155 Mulberry Street (corner of Grand and Mulberry Streets) in Manhattan will host “Postcards of the Mezzogiorno: A Photographic Essay of Southern Italy in the Bari Area.” Joseph M. Calisi, The International Transportation Photojournalist, retraced places visited in his youth to capture the sun-splashed beauty of a region rarely seen by tourists. This photographic essay of Puglia, features the beauty of Southern Italy that extends beyond the cathedrals of Rome and the gondolas of Venice. Commentary will accompany the presentation as he explores how the subtle overlay of technology has been interwoven with the classic architecture that endures. “Mezzogiorno” translated literally means ‘mid-day or noon’, and it is also used as to reference the Southern Italian region. Photographs of Bari, Mola di Bari, Alberobello, Cozze, Conversano, San Vito and Polignano in this presentation captures the magic of the towns including the traditional of the feast of St. Nicholas, held close in the hearts of the Baresi. In surrounding towns, century old homes and streets intermingle with modern palazzi, offering an insider’s perspective of the region. Traditional ways of life such as area farms, old buildings and open markets are juxtaposed with modern electrical equipment such as solar cells. Historical landmarks meet modern amenities in a curious mix where the populous absorbs the benefits of modern lifestyle but retains older values. “Visiting Italy, retracing the steps of my youth, I still marvel at the architecture of the region, how many of the buildings and stores remained the same, yet technology appeared where I least expected it. A visit to the fish market for example showed one vendor using a scale with counterweights and another using an electronic scale. I looked to reconcile the memories I had of the streets, towns and markets and marveled at although much had changed; so much had stayed the same. I also enjoyed hearing the old dialect as I walked through the town. It was music to my ears,” says Joseph M. Calisi. Joseph M. Calisi has been an International Transportation Photojournalist since 1993. He has contributed to the information world in print magazines, newspapers, electronic media as a TV reporter, radio broadcaster. He is also an expert in transportation systems around the world.

Bleed - Brooklyn Academy of Music
Through December 14, 2013 - Fort Greene

Marking the culmination of a two-year endeavor, choreographer Tere O'Connor collapses three of his dance works -- Secret Mary, based on themes of authorship and agency; poem, a study in formalism, artifice, and complexity; and Untitled, a duet about the minutiae of personality -- into a single hybrid creation. With each piece lending its own unique dancers, ideas, and approaches, Bleed forms a serendipitous new choreographic language. Meanings multiply through the layering, blending, and erasure of elements from each work, and in the choreographic threshold between process and product, craft and coincidence, a poetic logic is revealed.

Protocinema presents Koken Ergun - Westbeth Gallery
Through December 14, 2013 - New York

Protocinema presents Ashura (2012), a three-channel video installation by Köken Ergun. Ashura is the name of a the holy day central to Shi'a Muslim belief. With this video installation, which documents the day of Ashura celebrations in an underdeveloped neighbourhood on the outskirts of Istanbul, Turkey, Ergun continues his investigation into rituals and ceremonies in various sub-cultures, as well as the customs that define and bind communities. To make Ashura Köken Ergun worked in close collaboration for over three years with the people of Zeynebiye neighborhood in Istanbul, Turkey. During this time he documented the community's preparations for the day of Ashura ceremonies, practices which include group chants, a mass walk, a theatrical re-enactment of the historic battle, and an isolated weeping ritual at the end of the day. Founder and director of Protocinema Mari Spirito says, "We are showing Ashura in New York because historically this is a city of immigrants, and to this day New York is made up of communities from around the world holding on to their cultural practices and their own rituals. In this context Ashura emphasizes the similarities in communal social and religious ceremonies in a way that is both informative and empathetic. Ashura has the potential to open up dialogue about tolerance, and question how each of us function in our societies, at what levels, and to what end." Commenting on the place of ritual and community in his practice, Ergun says: "My work is only finally about rituals. It is first about people. It is about large groups of people and about how they do things, socially. My work is a journey away from the self to the group." Presented here in its original form as a three-channel video installation, Ashura has also been presented as a single-channel short film, earning Ergun a Special Mention at the 2013 Berlinale, the International Berlin Film Festival.
