In G Major - New York City Ballet
January 27, 2012 -

Ravel composed the Concerto in G Major after a trip to the United States. It has been seen as a reflection on Gershwin and American musical comedy. Ravel described the work as "... written in very much the same spirit as those of Mozart and Saint-Saëns," and that "it uses certain effects borrowed from jazz, but only in moderation." (Arbie Orenstein, Ravel: Man and Musician.) When the Paris Opera Ballet staged In G Major, under the name "En Sol," it commissioned scenery and costumes by Erté, which were borrowed by New York City Ballet. Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) was born in the French Basque town of Ciboure. His family moved to Paris and encouraged him to take piano lessons. At fourteen he was admitted to the Paris Conservatory, where he studied with Fauré, who became his principal teacher of composition. His ballet scores include Pavane pour une Infante Défunte, Jeux d'Eau, Boléro, Daphnis and Chloe, Ma Mère L'Oye, and L'enfant et les Sortiléges, a ballet-opera.

Le Tombeau de Couperin - New York City Ballet
January 27, 2012 -

In this suite of dances in 18th-century courtly style, eight couples are divided into left and right quadrilles. (A quadrille is an 18th-century dance form originating with squadrons at tournaments; it is also referred to as a square dance.) The dancers form geometric patterns — diagonals, diamonds, squares — and dance in unison as well as mimicking the movements of the opposing quadrille. Tombeau means "memorial" or "tomb." In 1919 Ravel composed a commemorative suite for piano in six movements (prelude, fugue, forlane, minuet, rigaudon, and toccato) in memory of six friends who died in World War I. In 1920 the composer orchestrated the piece, eliminating the fugue and the toccato. Ravel honors 18th-century French music in general and the French Baroque composer François Couperin in particular; Couperin was court musician and composer to Louis XIV, the Sun King. Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) was born in the French Basque town of Ciboure. His family moved to Paris and encouraged him to take piano lessons. At fourteen he was admitted to the Paris Conservatoire, where he studied with Fauré, who became his principal teacher of composition. His ballet scores include Pavane pour une Infante Défunte, Jeux d'Eau, Bolero, Daphnis and Chloé, Ma Mère L'Oye, and L'Enfant et les Sortilèges, a ballet-opera.

Thunderbird American Indian Dancers' 37th Annual Dance Concert and Pow-Wow - Theater for the New City
January 27, 2012 - East Village

The troupe will present dances, stories, and traditional music from the Iroquois and Native Peoples of the Northwest Coast, the Southwest, the Plains, and the Arctic regions. Proceeds from the pow-wow will go toward college funds for needy Native American students. Highlights will include storytelling, a Hoop Dance by a Cherokee tribe member, a Caribou Dance by the Inuit people of Alaska, a Buffalo Dance by the Hopi people, a Grass Dance and Jingle Dress Dance by the Northern Plains people, a Stomp Dance by the Southeastern tribes, and a Shawl Dance by the Oklahoma tribes. Featured performers will include the Heyna Second Son Singers (from various tribes). In the final section of the program, the audience will be invited to join in the Round Dance, a friendship dance. 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 10 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 Scholarship Fund receives its sole support from events like this concert (it receives no government or corporate contributions). It has bestowed more than 350 scholarships to-date.

Coeur de Pirate, Leif Vollebekk - Highline Ballroom
January 27, 2012 -

Coeur de Pirate is the solo project of award-winning singer, songwriter, and pianist B�atrice Martin. After a brief stint as keyboardist with the now-defunct December Strikes First, Martin briefly joined the Montreal-based indie pop band Bonjour Brumaire as a vocalist and pianist. She left in 2008 to record and release her debut album Coeur de Pirate. The album won national and international acclaim, propelled by an unexpected gift courtesy of YouTube. Francis Vachon, a photographer from Quebec City, used the album cut "Ensemble" as the soundtrack to a time-lapse video of his nine-month-old son. This immensely popular clip showcased her music to millions of new fans, earning her praise from Good Morning America, The Globe and Mail, and Perez Hilton, among many others. The album has since sold over 600,000 copies worldwide. North American and European tours followed, gaining her legions of fans in France and Germany. Martin then went into the studio to record a duet with Julien Dor� and collaborated on the Coca-Cola theme song for the Vancouver Olympics, "Open Happiness," with Jay Malinowski and Kardinal Official. She also recorded a duet with David Usher ("Everyday Things"). Two Felix Awards followed in 2009 and 2010, and she won a 2010 Victoire de la Musique Award for Original Song of the Year. Coeur de Pirate has also been nominated for a Juno and long-listed for the Polaris Prize. Now, after several additional high-profile collaborations and a prominent voiceover spot as the voice of a Smurfette in the major motion picture The Smurfs, Coeur de Pirate recently released her highly anticipated sophomore effort, Blonde (2011). The first single "Adieu" is a sophisticated pop mini-masterpiece. Featuring rolling waves of bass and drums supported by Martin's pixie-dusted vocals, the track is a bouncing melody of keyboards, guitar, and handclaps, kissed with a hint of menace.

Eve Beglarian's 'RiverProject' - Abrons Arts Center
January 27, 2012 - Lower East Side

A three-concert series by composer Eve Beglarian. In the fall of 2009, Beglarian journeyed down the Mississippi River by kayak and bicycle. Traveling slowly along the spine of the United States, she encountered sights, sounds, people, and communities that inspired a new body of "experimental Americana" music. The series includes three distinct evenings of Eve Beglarian's innovative and compassionate music, as she and her co-performers embody the many moods of the Mississippi - at turns brazen, calm, destructive, life-affirming, but always beautiful and mesmerizing. Performed by the RiverProject band BRIM (Beglarian and ETHEL co-founder and violinist Mary Rowell) with guest artists loadbang, Guidonian Hand, Newspeak, Malcolm J. Merriweather, and Taylor Levine. The three concerts comprise a mini-festival of music from the RiverProject, with some overlapping repertoire in varied arrangements each night, and some repertoire unique to each concert. Everywhere there are echoes of the folk, blues, jazz, and funk that have grown up in the regions touched by the river. The music also reflects a range of texts and influences that arose from meeting and talking with an array of individuals along the river, which make a unique statement about modern day America. Each performance will feature BRIM (Beglarian and Rowell) and many special guests. January 21: loadbang, Guidonian Hand, Eve Beglarian, and Mary Rowell A lung-powered evening with the voices and wind-instruments of loadbang and the trombone quartet Guidonian Hand, featuring The Island of the Sirens, in which the harsh sound of a warning alarm in Plaquemine, Louisiana, is electronically deconstructed alongside a plaintive text by Rilke about returning home after a long journey without any words to describe it. January 27: Newspeak, Eve Beglarian, and Mary Rowell An amplified evening with punk-classical octet Newspeak performing the New York premiere of Waiting for Billy Floyd, inspired by Beglarian's visit to the ghost town of Rodney, Mississippi, and a short story by Eudora Welty that takes place there. January 28: Eve Beglarian, Taylor Levine, Mary Rowell, and Malcolm J. Merriweather An intimate evening with the BRIM core duo of Beglarian and Rowell, along with guitarist Taylor Levine (of Dither and Newspeak) and singer Malcolm J. Merriweather. This more intimate performance will include the New York premiere of Well-Spent, which juxtaposes the Muddy Waters song "You Got to Take Sick and Die Some of These Days" with Leonardo da Vinci's serene thoughts on life and flowing water.

'Wide Open Spaces: The Outdoor Plays' - Five Angels Theater
January 27, 2012 - Manhattan

The 52nd Street Project, through which accomplished theater-makers work with Hell's Kitchen kids to create original theater, will present "Wide Open Spaces: The Outdoor Plays" January 27-29. These shows are the culmination of The Project's Two-on-Two series, in which each of six duos of kids (ages 13?15) is paired with two professionals: one who writes a play for them, and another who directs. Admission is free, but reservations should be made in advance by visiting www.52project.org or calling 212-642-5052. The kid actors featured in "Wide Open Spaces" are Hashem Ahmed, Michael Banister, Gabriella DeJesus, Devin Gonzales, Jasmine Hernandez, Wendell Joseph, Katie Liu, Lauren Robinson, Chamel Rodney, Edison Sibri, Mari Ulloa, and Elizabeth Vazquez. The adults writing the plays include Dustin Chinn, Larkin Clark, Liz Flahive ("From Up Here," "Nurse Jackie"), Michael Mitnick, Christopher Oscar Pe�a, and Melisa Tien. Directing the kids will be Molly Coogan ("Stairway to Stardom"), Rachel Dart, Katie Flahive, Jacob Grigolia-Rosenbaum (Fight Director: "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson," "Peter and the Starcatcher"), Lee Rosen ("Gabriel," "The Normal Heart," understudy Broadway) and Michael Walkup. Original music composed by Eric March. The Two-on-Two series is one of the more advanced parts of the theatrical education furnished by The 52nd Street Project. After a week of working on the plays, the kids are taken (along with their volunteer adult directors) out of town for an "actors retreat" in the countryside. The finished plays enjoy a three-day run of public performances. Although the adult mentors are always present in the wings during the performances, Project kids learn to rely on and support one another on stage for the first time.

Jazz-minh Moore: 'Is That All There Is' - Lyons Wier Gallery
Through January 28, 2012 - New York

Lyons Wier Gallery is pleased to present, Is That All There Is, its second solo exhibition with Jazz-minh Moore. Moore’s new series of paintings features her sister, Asia Kindred, amidst the ruins of a deteriorating cabin. The primarily naturalistic pallet is infused with distortion and bright color, causing the compositions to hover between physical and psychological space. The cabin depicted was the first structure built on the land where the artist was born, deep in the Oregon woods. Over the years and seasons, Moore has watched the dilapidated structure fall into a nest-like geometry that she finds beautiful. The external post and lintel structure has given way to the kind of forgotten, mythical space that a teen might build her fort in; a space wherein secrets can be told and tasted, where the patchy, uneven ground is both soft and solid. It is within this context that Asia is found squatting, or absentmindedly doodling on the fallen boards with a sharp stick. The cabin and the girl are inextricably linked through overlapping compositions. In some works, such as 'The Tower', Asia is almost entirely camouflaged amidst a patterning of light and tattoos. The idea of aligning one's own experience symbolically with gods in mythical fables is prevalent in Moore’s new body of work. The work speaks obliquely to the artist's disillusionment with monotheistic and patriarchal codes within Western culture. Throughout these paintings, physicality is dominant in the materials, subject matter and process: wood on wood, sex, cutting, and nature. The birch surfaces that inhabit the work also have a voice within the compositions. Utilizing the wood grain as a landscape to influence her compositions, Moore leaves some sections unfinished, while others are highly rendered. The level of completion is an evolving collaboration between the artist's hand and the organic drawing ‘style’ present in the wood panel itself. Some surfaces are finished with a high gloss resin. Others are left bare. The surface treatment is reflective of the subject matter within each work. Through a combination of tattoos on her sister's body and archetypes carved into the wood panels of the fallen cabin, Moore creates a personal pantheon of gods to reflect her experiences. These divinities, including a pair of snails in slow fornication, a blue-faced Kali, lines from a Jenny Holzer projection, a sculpture of a laughing pig with a coin-slot asshole by Matthew Weinstein, Medusa, Ouroboros, performance artists Eva and Adele, Lady Rizo, and an inextricable tangle of vines, connect as beings to Moore’s quest for a new iconography. Jazz-minh Moore received her MFA at California State University, Long Beach, CA and BFA from Cornish College of the Arts, Seattle, WA. She has received numerous grants and scholarships including a NYFA fellowship and a grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. Moore has produced solo shows in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Paris and has been featured in publications such as Interview, Whitehot and American Art Collector among others. She is the co-founder of the New York City based art collective, Gutbox, and recently participated as a contestant on Season 2 of “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist” on Bravo TV. Moore currently works and lives in New York City. “Is That All There Is” was made possible in part by the New York Foundation for the Arts.

'The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats' - The Jewish Museum
Through January 29, 2012 - Manhattan

The first major U.S. exhibition to pay tribute to award-winning author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983), this exhibition features more than 80 original works - from preliminary sketches and dummy books to final paintings and collages - for the artist's most popular books, including "The Snowy Day," which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012. Published at the height of the American civil-rights movement and winner of the prestigious Caldecott Medal, "The Snowy Day" became a milestone, featuring the first African-American protagonist in a full-color picture book. Also on view are examples of Keats' most introspective but lesser-known output inspired by Asian art and haiku poetry, as well as documentary material and photographs.

David Dorfman Dance - Prophets of Funk - Joyce Theater

Heralded by the Boston Globe for its "exuberant, gorgeous and delightfully oddball style," David Dorfman Dance returns to The Joyce with Prophets of Funk, a work that reinvigorates "boomer memories to the sounds of Sly and the Family Stone." (Boston Phoenix). "A celebration of the band's groundbreaking, visceral and political music, a tribute to the 'funk' of everyday people, the piece leaves everyone dancing in their seats, except for those choosing to join the performers on stage," says the choreographer. "Dorfman in league with Sly and the Family Stone? Irresistible." The Village Voice

An Artist Remembers: Hanukkah Lamps Selected by Maurice Sendak - The Jewish Museum
Through January 29, 2012 -

For this exhibition, the museum invited renowned artist and illustrator Maurice Sendak to choose a group of Hanukkah lamps from the collection. Sendak's work is characterized by a push and pull between beauty and sorrow, light and darkness. His art is triggered by memories and is also their repository. The world he creates is both dangerous and healing, as he tries to deal with the trauma of the Holocaust, in which many members of his family perished. When going through the museum's collection, the sheer number and variety of lamps struck a nerve, underscoring Sendak's deep, lifelong sense of loss at the destruction of the prewar world of his Eastern European Jewish parents. Having movingly evoked that world in his drawings for Zlateh the Goat and Other Stories (1966) and In Grandpa's House (1985), he surprised himself by mostly avoiding its rich visual language when choosing lamps for this presentation. "I stayed away from everything elaborate. I kept looking for very plain, square ones, very severe looking," he explained. "Their very simplicity reminded me of the Holocaust. And I thought it was inappropriate for me to be thinking of elaboration." The lamps Sendak finds most compelling and poignant are those that "go right to the heart," whose "beauty is contained." Yet his sense of humor is never far from the surface: as he made his choices he often free-associated, whimsically recalling old movies and Catskills family vacations. Above all, he is guided by his sensibility as an artist and author. He is drawn to simplicity of line, to a design "subservient to the basic idea of the piece," and responds to the depth of emotion that emanates from a work itself or from the stories behind it. Concerned lest the past be forgotten, he hopes that young visitors to this exhibition will keep alive the memory of a vanished world.

The Canterbury Tales Remixed - SoHo Playhouse
Through January 29, 2012 - New York

Geoffrey Chaucer's timeless Canterbury Tales comes to vivid life in an "entertaining and brilliant" (Time Out) virtuoso performance linking today's hip-hop lyrics with the greatest stories ever told. Framed by gripping re-imaginings of the epic poems Gilgamesh and Beowulf, Canadian hip-hop artist Baba Brinkman forges a new masterpiece out of the rawest material etched onto vinyl, or carved into clay tablets. Just like the most heart-wrenching songs by Eminem or Kanye West, these ancient Tales are infused with lust, betrayal, infidelity, greed, jealousy, ambition, and the endless struggles between men and women seeking happiness.  Baba Brinkman brings you a rich theatrical experience filled with laugh-out-loud hilarity and riveting storytelling, tracing a thread from Chaucer's venal Merchant and sensuous Wife of Bath to the muscular heroes of ancient lore, so similar to today's hip hop stars in their perpetual quest for glory. The Canterbury Tales Remixed is a truly modern telling of classic tales that will amaze young and old alike. The Canterbury Tales Remixed will now run through January 29, 2012 (originally set to close on January 8) at the SoHo Playhouse (15 Vandam Street). Tickets are $55-$19.50, to purchase visit www.SoHoPlayhouse.com or call OvationTix customer service toll-free: 866-811-4111.
