Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses - Cutting Room
August 09, 2017 - New York

Born into an undeniable musical legacy, Louis Prima Jr. picks up the torch lit by his iconic father and leads his incarnation of The Witnesses headfirst into the future. Their seamless blend of hard driving big band jazz, insanely danceable swing and, at its core, real rock and roll has been wowing crowds worldwide for over a decade. Make no mistake, this is no tribute act. Although the band most certainly Jumps, Jives, an' Wails "Prima-style," they are their own musical beast — thoroughly modern, laying down a blueprint for the future on the foundations of the past. Audiences will be treated to an evening of classics from the Louis Prima catalog, selections from LPJ & Co.'s two CDs (Return of the Wildest! and BLOW) and a healthy dose of sure-to-please surprises. Equal parts bandleader and ringmaster, Prima Jr. brilliantly distills the finest elements of his father's five-decade career through a contemporary filter, adding his own indelible stamp. "This is the happiest music on Earth!" he enthuses. "My father was rock n' roll; Mozart was rock n' roll. It's a state of mind; I don't think it's a genre of music. It's how aggressively do you play and do you play it like you mean it." And The Witnesses mean it. From Passaic to Palermo and Seattle to Sicily, they're bringing Prima music into the 21st century with new energy and attitude to match. It's The Wildest Show this side of the '60s!

Sexmob w/ John Medeski - City Winery
August 09, 2017 - New York

Sexmob Now celebrating its 20th year, Sexmob (Steven Bernstein - slide trumpet, Briggan Krauss - saxophones, Tony Scherr - bass, Kenny Wollesen - drums) continues to deconstruct familiar pop tunes with subversive impunity. Everything from Prince's "Sign O' the Times" to John Barry's "Goldfinger," the Grateful Dead's "Ripple," Nirvana's "About a Girl," the Rolling Stones' "Ruby Tuesday," Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth," Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" and ABBA's "Fernando" is fair game for this band of musical renegades. And Bernstein is explicit about Sexmob not being a cover band. "Covers to me means you play it exactly like the record," he explains. "I just take songs that I feel have a great melody and do them in my style. So I'll pick a tune and tell the guys, 'Let's Sexmob this!' And I realize that's what jazz musicians have always done. That's how Lester Young and Charlie Parker and Miles Davis got popular. They played the songs that everyone knew. And because they could recognize the song then that invited them into their style." The fact that Bernstein exclusively plays slide trumpet in Sexmob gives the quartet an even more distinctive edge. As he puts it, "When you play the trumpet, Louis Armstrong is the king. But when I play the slide trumpet, I'm the king. It's my voice. On trumpet, there's no escaping Armstrong and Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Lester Bowie…all those cats. But on slide trumpet, it's just me." Sexmob came together in 1996 in a weekly residency at the Knitting Factory Tap Room and in 1998 released its debut, Din of Inequity. They followed with 2000's Solid Sender, 2001's Sex Mob Does Bond, 2003's Dime Grind Palace, 2006's Sexotica, 2009's Sex Mob Meets Medeski: Live in Willisau and 2013's Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti: Sex Mob Plays Fellini. The group's latest, Cultural Capital, is the first Sexmob recording to feature all Bernstein original compositions. "Some of them, like 'Bari Si,' 'Step Apache' and 'Syrup' are through-composed like Jelly Roll Morton pieces," he explains. "And some like '4 Cents' and 'Street' and are more jammy, where we take a little idea — a line or a groove — and just develop it." The rubato ballad "Helmland," which features some particularly expressive slide trumpet work by Bernstein, carries a hymn-like feel while "Giant Minds" sounds like a requiem. Krauss and Scherr overdub guitars on "Valentino" and the raucous second-line groover "Golden Houses." Krauss is featured on the free interlude "Lacy" and he's turned loose on the edgy closer, "Briggan," Says the leader, "Sometime it's a little uncomfortable and jarring for people but that's what Briggan does, that's his thing. He's a different kind of virtuoso." Scherr is showcased on the African-influenced "Hear You" while "SF" pays tribute to Bernstein's Bay Area roots. "There were all these kind of psychedelic-blues hippie bands when I was growing up like Quicksilver Messenger Service, Sons of Champlin, The Loading Zone, Moby Grape. You'd hear those bands more than the Grateful Dead. So that's what this song was about." Bernstein and his Sexmob crew continue to push the envelope in delightfully subversive ways on their fiercely independent, self-produced new outing, Cultural Capital. John Medeski Famed keyboardist JOHN MEDESKI is not easily contained to a single project or genre; he is credited on over 300 works to date, most notably as one third of the groundbreaking trio, Medeski Martin & Wood. Equally comfortable behind a Steinway grand piano, Hammond organ or any number of vintage keyboards, Medeski is a highly sought after improviser and band leader whose projects range from work with MacArthur Fellow John Zorn, The Word (Robert Randolph, North Mississippi Allstars), Phil Lesh, Don Was, John Scofield, Coheed & Cambria, Susana Baca, Sean Lennon, Marc Ribot, Irma Thomas, Blind Boys of Alabama, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and many more. Classically trained, Medeski grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, FL where as a teenager he played with Jaco Pastorius before heading north to attend the New England Conservatory. He released his first solo piano record, A Different Time, on Sony's Okeh Records in 2013, and current projects include a new album in the works with his band Mad Skillet (Terrence Higgins, Kirk Joseph, Will Bernard), and HUDSON (a collaboration with Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield and Larry Grenadier), plus a documentary on Medeski Martin & Wood.

The Accidentals - Mercury Lounge
August 09, 2017 - New York

Billboard's Breakout Band at SXSW 2015, Huffington Post's Sweet Sixteen of 2016, and Yahoo Music's Top Ten Bands to Watch 2017.. Described by John Sinkevics of Local Spins as "genre-melding indie-folk," The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) exhibit "a musical and lyrical sophistication that outstrips most mainstream bands." From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over seven hundred live shows. THEN they graduated high school. After graduation from world-renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, The Accidentals added multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter, Michael Dause, as their touring/studio drummer and opened for musical greats that include Andrew Bird, Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar Man), Brandi Carlile, Dar Williams, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ben Sollee, Rusted Root, The Wailers, Keller Williams, Arlo Guthrie, Martin Sexton, and Joan Baez. In 2015, they scored original pieces for a 72-piece orchestra, an opera-dance project with Son Lux, and a smaller 30-piece string ensemble, while touring the US extensively. In June of 2016, they released a brand new, self-produced EP called Parking Lot, of which the single, "Michigan and Again," went viral. They've kicked off 2017 as major label artists, having signed a record deal with Sony Masterworks to release a full-length album in August. Yahoo called it first – this is the band to watch. Visit their website at www.moreaccidentals.com, or become a member of their FamGrove to be a part of the journey. "Stunning, an unforgettable experience watching these two girls play a sea of instruments (twelve to be exact), moving effortlessly from one to the other, while entertaining the masses with their wit, haunting harmonies, and catchy melodies, they are truly unforgettable." – Grand Rapids Press "In performance, they can rock. Their live act is frequently electric. The stage patter and presence is polished but real. They switch instruments before the song they have finished sinks in. A 45 minute set passes like a train. They already have more good originals than most hit acts, and their tastefully eccentric list of covers, well… covers the gamut. They pack performing space with a multi-generational mix any act would beg for." – Jim Linderman, Grammy Award Winning Blogger and Author "Musicality, originality, and melodic beauty combine with a welcome, and unexpected, bite to clever lyrics. Such talent, wit, and enthusiasm are hard to find anywhere. A duo giving an edge to folk with unique instrumentation is as close as I can come to describing them. A must hear! Songwriters need look no further to find a new pairing to be jealous of, especially with such a bright future ahead of them." – Matt Mansfield, Z93 RadioCalvin Langman, Ross Monteith and Luke Davis founded the Happy Fits in Pittstown, NJ with two goals in mind: make great tunes and Spread Positive social change throughthe power of music. Since their inception in 2016, the two have used their music to raise money for numerous charities, including Safe in Hunterdon, The Family Promise of Hunterdon, The Mental Health Association of NYC, and TheAmerican Cancer Society.

Donavon Frankenreiter - Bowery Ballroom
August 09, 2017 - New York

Donavon Frankenreiter's new album, "The Heart," officially marks the start of the singer-songwriter's second decade as a solo recording artist. It's been over ten years since the release of his self-titled debut, and in that time he has grown, not only as a musician, but also as a man. He's raising a family and nurturing two creative careers-one onstage, one in the waves-but on top of all that, he's still learning what makes him tick. And so, naturally, he named his album after his ticker. "All these songs are as close to me singing from the heart as I can," says Frankenreiter. "It's a complete record; the songs are intertwined. I had to call it 'The Heart,' that was the theme of the record.

Lethal Shock, Sauron, Chain, Throoat - Saint Vitus
August 09, 2017 - Brooklyn

Chicago trio Lethal Shöck drinks from the purest well of heavy metal glory and pisses out their own brand – atomik metal. A bastardization of d-beat, speed metal and heavy metal with majestic guitar solos, they definitely don't re-invent the wheel, they just cover it with spikes, light it on fire, and hurl it down a mountain towards a church picnic while slamming Coors banquet beer and hailing the goat. Brainchild of leader Patrick Shöck and taking its primitive shape in 2008, it took several personnel changes to come to its iniquitous fruition with the amalgamation of Steve Beaudeth and Justin Fernal to produce the crushing debut album "Evil Aggressor". Solidified, electrified, and drunkified, Lethal Shöck is the vomit coated boot on the back of every poseur's skull. GET FUCKED!

Jeff Rosenstock+Laura Stevenson+Thin Lips - Monty Hall
August 09, 2017 - New York

It's almost midnight on a Saturday in the summer, and I live in New York City. I'm still in my 30s and I don't have to get up early tomorrow. By anyone's standards, I should be heading out for the night; dancing, drinking, meeting up with old friends, making new friends, making mistakes, and feeling young in a city that allows you to remain young despite your age growing higher. I should be out there living. Instead, I just put a load of laundry in the machine in my building's basement. I'm wearing a pair of green shorts and I feel like an asshole in them. I have knobby knees and shorts don't look good on me. I am wearing a light green t­shirt and the whole outfit makes me vaguely feel like a middle­aged man dressed up for his first day of kindergarten. I am going nowhere tonight, and I suspect this may apply in the long term as well. This seems like the perfect time to write about ?Jeff Rosenstock?. Because no one I've ever met creates art that encapsulates this state of mind more than Jeff. It's music that's catchier than any other music, music you can scream along to in a joyous frenzy. But simultaneously, if you really listen to the lyrics you're shouting, they can speak to a loneliness and desperation so profound it's soul crushing. I've lost myself in joy to Jeff's songs and I've sat alone depressed to Jeff's songs, and I've felt both those things to the same song, sometimes on back to back listens. Nobody can take the exhilaration and possibilities of life and balance them with the depression of a laundry room on a Saturday night like Jeff Rosenstock. His music can be like a funeral taking place inside a bouncy house, or like a kids' birthday party taking place inside a morgue. I say that with the utmost sincerity and the intent to offer only the highest of praise. If you're reading this, you probably know the legend of Jeff Rosenstock by now. The Arrogant Sons of Bitches had Long Island's attention, and then mutated into Bomb the Music Industry, a collection of musicians that were among the first to just give their music away, that spray painted t­shirts for fans, that did everything in a way that was financially ill­advised and built a cult unlike any other in the process. Sometimes their shows had a dozen musicians on stage, sometimes it was Jeff and an ipod. No matter what, there was always one thing that remained the same – this band had as much integrity as Fugazi with none of the pretension but with all the emotion but with a lot more fun and also I have to reiterate none of the pretension. To me it seems like Bomb was like Fugazi if the members of Fugazi had been willing to let down their guards and laugh at fart jokes. Again, this is meant as high praise. I really like Fugazi and am not trying to talk shit, it's just an apt metaphor.Laura Stevenson is finally learning not to worry. After more than a year of national and worldwide touring following the release of her critically acclaimed album Wheel, both headlining, and alongside such varied acts as Against Me!, The Go-Go's, Kevin Devine, Tim Kasher of Cursive, and The Gaslight Anthem, the songwriter made the move from her between-tour home base of Brooklyn, to upstate New York's Hudson River Valley. There, she rented a nineteenth- century Victorian, a former brothel in a cement-mining town-turned hippie-enclave, and converted the attic into a makeshift studio. It was in this space that she and her band went to work arranging and demoing the eleven songs she had written that would make up Cocksure, Stevenson's fourth album. The record features musicians Mike Campbell, Alex Billig and Peter Naddeo, who in various incarnations have performed with her for over seven years, as well as newcomer Samantha Niss, a long-time Hudson Valley resident and the veritable go-to drummer of the region. Where 2013's Wheel was full of lingering uncertainty, harkening to Stevenson's folk and country leanings, Cocksure is a straightforward, to the point, emboldened rock and roll album. Although some existential dread still peaks through the cracks, Stevenson treats themes as heavy-hearted as sudden and tragic death, self-imposed exile in small windowless rooms, and that back-of-your- mind anxiety that the road you're on may not be the right one, as their own signs of life; a life that is brightly colored by those realities.Thin Lips is the brain heart baby of Chrissy Tashjian, Kyle Pulley, Christopher Diehm and Mikey Tashjian. Their debut EP Divorce Year was released in 2015, giving us a sweet blend of indie rock guitar riffs and punk rock energy. This EP was recently pressed to 7" vinyl via Lame-O Records. With their new album Riff Hard, named after the tattoos on Chrissy's knuckles, Thin Lips bring their guitar shredding, high energy indie rock to a whole new level.

Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive - Private Gallery Tour with Curator Barry Bergdoll - The Museum of Modern Art
August 09, 2017 - Manhattan

The tour will take place after regular opening hours when the galleries are closed to the public.

Gordi - Baby's All Right
August 09, 2017 - New York

Where is this generation's "In Your Eyes"? Our "Come Talk To Me"? That song to blast as we passionately, earnestly raise the boombox high over our heads outside our beloved's window at twilight. It's been a while since we had one of those songs — something expansive and elegant; big-pop that feels as personal and tender. Let us humbly offer the music of Sydney's Gordi — 23-year-old Sophie Payten. Her debut EP, Clever Disguise gets at it both ways — massive and personal music that doesn't concede an inch of artistic vision. Raised in the small, farming community of Canowindra in Australia's New South Wales, amongst a minuscule population of 2,381, Payten learned to play piano and guitar in her house — with Billy Joel on near-constant rotation. She left the rural life in her late-teens to pursue a medical education in Sydney alongside her musical career. The dichotomy of those environments — the pastoral and the modern — is surely a guiding influence in Gordi's music. Earthy, wistful folk songs are cloaked in delicate-but-bold electronic production. And what an effortlessly flooring voice to carry it all, at once fractured and brimming with richness. These are songs you could hear bouncing through the alleyways of the city as much as you could hear them rolling across the fields. Fans in Payten's native Australia have already been treated to a number of these magical musical moments courtesy of consistent rotation on triple j and FBi Radio, including nominations for a triple J J Award and 2 FBi SMAC Awards in 2015, on top of being named triple j Unearthed's most played artist during 2015.

Warbly Jets Max Pain and the Groovies, Native Sun - Baby's All Right
August 09, 2017 - New York

With little to no money, circumstances led them to several months of couch-surfing, at one point when they finally secured a lockout production space in Venice, Samuel and Julien had no choice but to stay at a questionable motel nearby and begin to chip away. Another studio setback in San Diego left the two searching for housing back in LA while, perhaps more importantly, searching for the rightspace to record the band's first official cuts. The process was far from perfect." There were quite a few moments of slogging through shit" says O'neill, "but there were also some very lucky breaks in the end." Chief among them: the additions of Justin Goings on drums and Dan Gerbang on bass.They've certainly needed the support at times; aside from the typical growing pains all bands experience, Shea was in a bad motorbike accident last year that left him with a fractured wrist and forearm. And while he felt "completely defeated" at first, "wondering if I would ever be able to play an instrument again,"Native Sun is a four-piece rock n roll band from Brooklyn. Loud and urgent, their music breeds a beautiful chaos evocative of each member's experiences. Frontman Danny Gomez first met lead guitarist Jake Pflum while growing up in Florida. After years without contact they reconnected by chance on a random evening in the city, rekindling their friendship over their mutual obsession for The Rolling Stones and Velvet Underground. They immediately forced their best friend Alexis Castro to play drums (who had only just recently began teaching himself how to play). Bassist Mo Martinez uprooted to the city from Monterrey, Mexico. In hopes of playing music he reached out to Danny through mutual friends and naturally completed the band's lineup.

Malpaso Dance Company / Daymé Arocena / Nickodemus - City Parks Foundation
August 09, 2017 - Manhattan

Afro-Cuban singer of jazz and neo-soul meets celebrated Cuban contemporary dance troupe Featuring 6pm pre-show panel "Cuban Music and Dance in the Mix" with moderator Ned Sublette and panelists Dayme Arocena, Nickodemus, and Yesenia Fernandez-Selier. Ned Sublette, educational Cuban music travel leader, author of Cuba and Its Music: From the First Drums to the Mambo, longtime producer for Afropop Worldwide, and co-founder of the Qbadisc record label, will talk with our invited guests about Cuba as a space for music and dance, how Cuban music and dance transform when they are exported, and how they fit into the mix in the United States. RSVP is required for 6pm panel attendance, RSVP@CityParksFoundation.org Seating for the 8pm performance starts at 7pm and is first come, first served until venue reaches capacity. MALPASO DANCE COMPANY Filled with the zesty cadences of the authentic Cuban experience, Malpaso Dance Company, led by the inspired, award-winning artistic director Osnel Delgado (graduate and professor of the dance-domain-revered National Dance School), brings modern Havana-based takes on rumba & salsa-influenced movement to the awaiting world. Proudly founded in 2012 by Delgado, Daileidys Carrazana and Fernando Sáez, Malpaso provides a visually stimulating, emotion-stirring outlet for both international and Cuban choreographers. The troupe tours with eleven of the country's most capable and dedicated performers. Acclaimed repertory standouts include 24 Hours and a Dog, a bright and jazzy modern medley bursting with alacrity (the select piece being performed this summer), and the unforgettable Farewell, choreographed and presented by Delgado, both set to compositions by Grammy Award-winning Cuban-American composer Arturo O'Farrill (with 24 Hours featuring an original overture crafted for the piece). Other, externally choreographed works include Why You Follow by Ronald K. Brown and Under Fire by Trey McInytre, along with an assorted cornucopia of fresh Cuban cuts. Featured photo courtesy of Nir Arieli. DAYMÉ AROCENA Daymé Arocena is a musically magnanimous ambassador of Afro-Cuban culture, ebulliently bestowing her bravura onto the rest of the globe. At only 23 years old, Arocena has already made an indelible mark on the Cuban music landscape with her dynamic blend of jazz and Cuban neo-soul. Applauded by The New York Times for her ability to unite "cosmopolitan musicianship with deep roots," she splices complex phrasing with expressly Cuban elements, such as Santerian chanting. Her first album as a soloist, 2015's Nueva Era, was named one of the year's best by NPR, and her latest release of reimagined covers, One Takes, hits transcendental levels of sonorous heights, uniquely capturing the mood and zeitgeist of each original song (including the Horace Silver classic "Gods of Yoruba"). NICKODEMUS Nickodemus is a New York raised DJ and producer, who has traveled to the hottest dance spots on the globe, igniting the decks with NYC bravura. Ever since the 90's, he has been producing original music and remixing tracks for a host of music titans, including Bob Marley, Nina Simone, Billy Holiday, Mr Scruff feat. Alice Russell, Thievery Corporation, Miguel Migs, The Balkan Beat Box, Quantic, The Pimps of Joytime & many more. Under his own name, Nickodemus has released three full length albums. First came the breakout beat explosionEndangered Species in 2005, followed by 2009's groove-infused Sun People, and finally the lusciously lunar Moon People in 2012. Nickodemus brings an international grab bag of styles to his legendary sets, with Latin, African and Eastern instrumentation and beats, all fused together in a blood-pumping musical mélange. With tracks like "Cleopatra in New York" and "Mi Swing es Tropical," Nickodemus has added uniquely molded sounds to the international electronic landscape. He has helped to keep the New York dance scene thriving with his Turntables on the Hudson bashes, going strong for nearly two decades. With a brand new album out this fall, Nickodemus is keeping the party rolling on.

Cole Lumpkin - Rockwood Music Hall
August 09, 2017 - East Village

Ever since he was old enough to walk, Lumpkin has been impassioned by, fascinated with, and intimately connected with music. Drawing from a diverse array, of influences, from the avant-garde rock of Frank Zappa to the blue-eyed pop-soul of John Mayer, his affection for the art of organized sound has become his creed: to compose music and play it for the pleasure of the masses. His compositions are vibrant, a fusion of tasteful form, lyric and improvisation he has coined "Prog Pop". Live, he performs on multiple instruments with an impressive array of professional musicians, nailing tight arrangements of his work, taking musical risks during solos, and keeping the energy bar high.

The New Apollos - Rockwood Music Hall
August 09, 2017 - East Village

The New Apollos is a NYC based Rock and Roll group. Their raw sound is surfy, and garagey—like a blend of 90's alternative rock and 60's experimental pop, with lots other influences in between. Think Beck and Kurt Cobain go to John Lennon's crib for a jam. Neill MacCallum, the founder of the group, is a veteran of the New York music scene. He has produced, collaborated and performed with countless acts, most notably Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers and Nick Bockrath of Cage the Elehpant.

Fort Vine - Rockwood Music Hall
August 09, 2017 - East Village

Fort Vine's music is something everyone can connect to; whether it be their sweeping melodies, rich harmonies, catchy rhythms, or poetic lyrics- there's a lot to love about Fort Vine. They weave several genres of music together, from Indie-Rock to Folk-Pop, to form one cohesive Alternative Art-Rock sound. More than just music, Fort Vine is also a place- a tree fort nestled in a secret corner of abandoned overgrowth on the crowded island of Manhattan. It takes a keen eye to find it, but it's there. Fort Vine, the band, is also one of Manhattan's best kept secrets- although, people are starting to catch on. Their live performance fills any venue with positive energy, radiating through dancing crowds and lingering in the hearts of all who hear them, long after the show has ended. Front man, Trevor Tunison, from the Catskill Mountains in upstate NY, grew up building forts in his back forest, sculpting clay figures, and singing with the trees- a magical childhood by anyone's standards. He grew up to be a mastermind of melody. Fate can only explain how he met his front woman, Nyna Nelson, from central Washington State. She moved to New York with a suitcase and a dream, which spiraled into something completely different once she stumbled into Tunison on their building's front stoop. Who knew she needed to move to New York to relive her favorite childhood pastime of building tree forts and writing songs? When Luke Markham, Fort Vine's drummer, found his way to NYC from Buffalo, it was only natural he should join the band after he and Tunison had collaborated in college a few years prior. Markham makes Fort Vine move like no one else can, especially in the presence of Kenny Johnson, their bass guitarist and third-part-harmony face-melter. Hailing from Colorado, Johnson moved all across the US playing music before landing in the big city, and joining the band. Ancient legend has it, if you put your ear up to any living tree, you can hear Fort Vine's music playing, as trees are natural antennas broadcasting Fort Vine for all to hear.

Brandi & The Alexanders, On The Sun - Rockwood Music Hall
August 09, 2017 - East Village

Brandi & The Alexanders. "We have been fussin' and fightin' for far too long," cautions lead singer Brandi Thompson on "Bad Love." Recorded at Mighty Toad Studios in June, the tune offers a taste of bittersweet heartache amid the upbeat, head-bobbing, toe-tapping repertoire of Brandi & the Alexanders. With a sound nestled between old-school soul and west coast R&B, this 10-piece band is bringing back a classic style with songs about second chances, hard goodbyes and fresh starts. Fueled by personal experiences, the powerful, raw emotion with which Brandi wails and writes has been heating up venues across New York City since 2012. From fall of 2013 through the summer of 2014, the band held down a monthly residency at The Way Station, a small performance venue in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. There, they developed originals, instrumentals and dozens of eclectic covers, including TLC's "Waterfalls", The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" and Allen Toussaint's "Mean Man" to name a few. Out of those sweaty, exuberant, packed-house nights, Brandi & the Alexanders built a distinct sound that led them from Brooklyn to venues like Pianos, Rockwood Music Hall and The Bitter End. On The Sun. On The Sun is a live band based in Brooklyn, NY creating original music influenced by soul, rock, funk, americana and psychedelia. With all members contributing as writers, arrangers, and/or producers, the group's collaborative process yields frequent new material and they are currently recording a follow up record to their self-titled LP debut.

Maxi Priest - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
August 10, 2017 - New York

Only a handful of singers succeed in transcending their genre without losing the essence of who they are. Superstar Maxi Priest is one of those artists whose own unique vision has led him to tremendous international success, being the first reggae artist to have a No. 1 hit worldwide, including the U.S. Billboard charts. His new album, Easy To Love is as fine a representation of lovers' rock as you could possibly wish for. The sophistication he brings to these tracks is the mark of true quality; his effortless blend of reggae, R&B and dancehall has universal appeal. Maxi Priest is the first British-born singer to graduate from the London reggae sound-system Saxon Studio International, introducing the sound of lovers' rock to a global audience. Before joining Saxon, Maxi embraced Rastafari and served an apprenticeship with South London sound-system Negus Negast and the legendary Jah Shaka. Maxi has adhered to these principles his entire career by making conscious music of all kinds. While Easy To Love is essentially an album of love songs, it closes with a track first recorded by Ras Michael and the Sons of Negus in the 1970's. Maxi's version of "None A Jah Jah Children" is strikingly original. It is intended as a blessing to see us safely on our way as we're transported to a Rasta grounation or Nyahbinghi - a gathering of the faithful where we receive affirmation that no matter the hardships, Jah Jah's children will always triumph.

Shakespeare In The Park: Measure for Measure - Cunningham Park
August 10, 2017 - Fresh Meadows

These family-friendly productions are for lovers of Shakespeare and for those experiencing Shakespeare for the first time. All performances are free and open to the public. Bring blankets, low chairs and picnic fare. No lines. No tickets. Seating is first come, first served. The Duke of Vienna's puritanical deputy Angelo, tasked with cleaning up a city out of control, revives ancient laws regarding sex and marriage. When he unjustly sentences the young gentleman Claudio to death, Claudio's sister Isabella pleads his case...and discovers that Angelo is not as virtuous as he seems. Shakespeare's dark comedy examines the danger of placing power in the wrong hands. Plus, Hip to Hip’s free children’s program “Kids & the Classics” will be offered 30 minutes before each performance. This theatrical experience will enrich, empower and entertain kids of all ages through a series of fun theatre games, teaching the tenets of ensemble playing, and introducing kids to the style and language of William Shakespeare's plays. Shakespeare's darkest comedy explores bigotry, justice, and the limitations of the law. The young Venetian gentleman Bassanio has squandered all his money, but he needs 3,000 ducats so that he can travel to Belmont and woo the beautiful heiress Portia. His devoted friend Antonio helps him by borrowing the cash from the moneylender Shylock. But when Antonio is forced to default on the loan, Shylock seeks a gruesome revenge, and Portia and Bassanio find themselves in a desperate struggle to save Antonio's life. Inspired by the legacy of Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival, the Queens-based Hip to Hip Theatre Company was founded in 2007 with the aim of producing free, family-friendly, professional productions of popular classics in public spaces. Hip to Hip’s flagship program of “Free Shakespeare in the Park” places an emphasis on outreach to underserved and underprivileged communities. Hip to Hip provides its beneficiaries with a total theatre experience, including great plays, professional actors, sets, lights and sumptuous costumes. The Daily News called Hip to Hip, “The preeminent theatre troupe in Queens.” The Queens Tribune said, “Shakespeare as performed by Hip to Hip is a joy, pure and simple.” This programming is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council and by Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional funding allocated by City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer.

John Primer Band - Terra Blues
August 10, 2017 - New York

As a young musician, John Primer drew his first influences from his family's involvement with spiritual and gospel music. This early exposure, aided by the the sounds of Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Little Milton, Elmore James, B.B. & Albert King, led to a fascination with the blues. True to the form of many bluesmen before him, Primer left Mississippi for Chicago where he played along side Sammy Lawhorn, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Smokey Smothers, Lonnie Brooks. His career did not have anywhere to go but up and he was taken on as an opening act for Muddy Waters. After Muddy's passing in 1983, Primer joined and toured with Magic Slim and the Teardrops until 1995 when he released his debut album The Real Deal. Ever since, this Grammy and W.C.

Holly Miranda - Union Pool
August 10, 2017 - Brooklyn

On a trip intended to jumpstart the creative process for new material, Holly Miranda reflects, "I had a dream that I was going to rent a house in Joshua Tree and go write by myself for a month. I'd never been there before, but I woke up the next day and booked the first house I found and left a few days later. It was about getting away from the chatter of Los Angeles and reconnecting with myself and nature. I had a bit of writer's block after the last record, I wasn't having fun anymore and I really needed to get back the core of why I started making music 17 years ago." she says. Whatever it was Miranda needed from her time in desert, she seems to have found it. On her self-titled sophomore release Miranda nods at her singer-songwriter roots but also pushes herself in new directions. She co-produced the album with Florent Barbier, and tracks like "Desert Call" and "Everlasting," show off straightforward songwriting, soulful delivery and a lighters-in-the-air orchestration that places Miranda alongside the pantheon of songwriters who can make heartache sound beautiful. After half of her life spent on stage or in a recording studio—with her former rock band The Jealous Girlfriends and more recently as a solo artist— Miranda is still experimenting and diving for deeper truths. "This is the most honest thing I've ever made; it's very raw and is a contrast to what I've done in the past," she says. After writing in Joshua Tree, she headed to Brooklyn, New York in the winter of 2012 to record most of the album, enlisting the help of bandmates Timmy Mislock, Maria Eisen and David Jack Daniels, while taking turns herself on piano, drums, guitar and bass. "There's a Motown vibe to some of the songs" she notes of the recordings. "I wanted it to feel like the band was playing the songs live. There's also a few that are more electronic and ethereal," like the song "Come On." She recorded that track in Los Angeles with David Andrew Sitek, producer of her 2010 release The Magicians Private Library. Outside of recording, Miranda's kept plenty busy. She recently toured the globe playing guitar for Karen O in support of her solo debut Crush Songs, she toured Spain for the annual Voces Femininas festival and is currently working on a graphic novel with Portland based artist Catherine Lazar Odell. "I can't remember a time I wasn't singing. When I was little my older sisters used to make me lay on the floorboard of the car if I was going to sing, because my voice was so loud they said it felt like it was 'inside of their heads.' I'll never stop making music. It's the best therapy I've found." Listening to her new record, one certainly hopes she never stops.

Tall Friend (Record Release) Yowler, Really Big Pinecone, Anna Altman - Baby's All Right
August 10, 2017 - New York

Tall Friend began as Charlie Pfaff's solo project in the summer of 2014. Their songs are an outlet; a way for Pfaff to express and process intense experiences and emotions in a healthy way. In 2015, their close friend Cale Cuellar joined in as a second guitarist. The two played shows around Washington, DC for several months before drummer Jesse Paller joined the band. In January 2016, all three members met up at Jesse's house to flesh out some songs Charlie had written, Tall Friend's first release, the semi-self titled Tawl Friend EP. Originally self-released, the EP was re-released earlier this year on Exploding in Sound Records in anticipation of Tall Friend's full length debut, Safely Nobody's. Due out August 11th, the album documents Charlie's experiences as a young person growing up in an abusive and unstable household. The lyrics grapple with Charlie's inability to juggle interpersonal relationships (caring for both their mentally ill mother, their friends, and themself), wanting to find an escape, and healthy growth. With Jesse on drums and Cale and Charlie switching between bass and guitar, the songs became something bigger and more complex. Intricate guitar parts complement simple, yet profound bass lines as lyrics paint a portrait of both heartache and strength.

Walkthrough with Jackie Ferrera - The Drawing Center
August 10, 2017 - Soho

Jackie Ferrara: Lines consists of eight wall drawings, each anchored by imagined architecture or architectural elements along with lists of film titles rendered in Morse code. The Morse code acts as a foundation or band, interrupting the drawn architecture or adding another layer over the entire surface. The underlying theme of the individual drawings is reflected both in the architectural element or shape dominating the drawing as well as by the Morse code text, which consists of curated lists of films Ferrara began compiling in 1993 that reflect her life-long passion for film. Vampire Towers, for example, depicts nine abstract, dark towers that emerge out of a foundation of vampire film titles veiled in Morse code. This commission reflects the ongoing evolution of Ferrara's work, incorporating elements of the established language of her sculpture and public art works and bringing them to the walls of The Drawing Center. Jackie Ferrara (b. 1929) is best known for her sculptural works and public art projects which are included in museum collections and public spaces worldwide. She developed her signature style, which is based on architectural forms and pyramid structures, in the 1970s. Her drawings, like her sculptures, are meticulously developed and rooted in her interest in systems, repetition, and geometry.

Trella - Rockwood Music Hall
August 10, 2017 - East Village

Friends, In a world where we can find infinite reasons to become bitter, cynical and jaded, I am challenging you to latch onto hope, joy, and love. The process of writing and recording for my upcoming EP, Vapor, was, is, and continues to be a whirlwind. It has truly taught me the bittersweet nature of despair. In the words of my rockstar mother: "your worst day never lasts forever." There is an end to what might feel like an endless struggle. Our pain is much like vapor–here for a moment, and disappearing over time, into thin air. Daily, I am motivated by the fleeting nature of time. I am reminded of the importance in being present in each moment you are given-even when life tends to spit out one disappointment after another. Music, for me, has always been my motivator towards hope. Unleashing all of my negative and positive energy towards finding a melody always ends in a perspective change. It motivates me to serve others, and to give hope. The words and melodies of Vapor came from the deepest corners of my heart in the midst of the heaviest despair I have ever experienced. I came back to these songs about a year later and added the hope I feel now that the darkness had subsided. I want every human to know that they are not alone in the pain they have previously experienced or the pain that they are currently flooded with. All humans experience pain to one extreme or another. I feel my job as an artist is to reveal the beauty and hope that can be found in the midst of this pain. You are much more than the hurtful words that other humans have defined you with, and we must wake up every day and remind ourselves this truth. Also, there is something to be said about dancing, having fun, CRASHING down the negative labels that we have been given in the past, and BREAKING out of the roles that were forced upon us. Spreading hope through melody and lyric is my passion. Also, groovin', dancin', and having fun. This is why I write, this is why I sing, and this is why I play. Join me in latching onto the hope in what's ahead. -Trella

Menashe - BAM Fisher
Through August 10, 2017 - Brooklyn

Directed by Joshua Z. Weinstein | 2017 With Menashe Lustig, Yoel Falkowitz, and Ruben Niborski "...this funny and tender film prompts cheerful smiles..." —The New York Times Menashe, a hapless grocery store clerk in the Hasidic community of Brooklyn's Borough Park, tries to maintain custody of his son Rieven after his wife passes away. In this strict, tradition-bound culture, it is required that a mother be present in every home, but Menashe's rabbi decides to grant him one week to spend with Rieven to prove to his skeptical community that he can be a capable parent. Shot entirely within the Hasidic community in secret and one of the only films performed in Yiddish in nearly 70 years, Menashe is a life-affirming look at the universal bonds between father and son. Based largely on the real life of its Hasidic star Menashe Lustig, the film is an authentic and deeply moving portrait of family, love, connection, and community.

Sign up for our newsletter to be notified about all things Gramercy Theatre, including presales, special offers, and ticket giveaways! ARTIST INFO It would be an understatement to say that a lot has happened since Whiskey Myers was last in the recording studio. Over two whirlwind years, the gritty Texas band hit #1 on the iTunes Country Chart with their breakout third album 'Early Morning Shakes,' earned raves everywhere from Rolling Stone to USA Today, and toured the US and UK relentlessly, slaying massive festival crowds and sharing stages with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr., Jamey Johnson, and more along the way. You'd be forgiven, then, for expecting things to work a little differently this time around when the band reunited with acclaimed producer Dave Cobb for their stellar new album, 'Mud.' But as it turns out, success doesn't change a Southern gentleman, and they don't come any more Southern than Whiskey Myers. Fueled by larger-than-life performances honed tight from countless nights on the road, 'Mud' finds the band scaling new heights of songwriting and musicianship, with searing guitars, soulful vocals, and indelible hooks. While their approach to the music and humble, hard-working attitudes may not have altered, there have been developments in the Whiskey Myers world, most notably with the arrival of new faces. For the recording sessions, the band's five founding members—Cody Cannon on lead vocals and guitar, Cody Tate and John Jeffers on guitars, Gary Brown on bass, and Jeff Hogg on drums—fleshed out their sound with the addition of fiddler/keyboard player Jon Knudson and percussionist Tony Kent, who are both now full-time members. "They bring a great energy, and I think it's really helped our sound and makes the band more versatile," explains Cannon. "There's less room onstage now, but sometimes a family grows." Even in the face of their rapidly-growing profile and expanding lineup, the band found they were able to pick up exactly where they left off when they returned to the studio for 'Mud.' "We don't want a high stress situation, and we don't want to feel uncomfortable while we're recording, because we want to make sure everybody can get into their creative mode," explains Brown. "Dave has a laid back attitude as far as making music and that fits right in with the way we work. His ear is similar to ours and he has the same kind of vision for what the music should sound like." "Where you come from and where you grew up influences your music a lot," says Cannon. "As a band, we don't go into the studio with any preconceived theme. You just sit down and you write and the songs come out naturally." In the end, there may be no better word for Whiskey Myers than authentic. This music is in their blood, and it flows as naturally from them as a spring feeding a mountain creek. While a record this good is sure to send their (lone)star rising higher than ever before, you can rest assured that success still won't be changing this band any time soon. They make music they're proud of that celebrates where they come from and makes people feel good. As far as they're concerned, that's all the success anyone could ever ask for.

Tiffany and Co., Associated Artists. The design of the room by these artisans was exotic, eclectic, and full of experimentation;as noted by Decorator and Furnisher: "the prepondering styles appear to be the Greek, Moresque and Celtic, with a dash of Egyptian, the Persian and the Japanese in the appropriate places." He sang with agility, elegance, and Rossinian style, tossing off high notes and roulades…this was a winning performance for an increasingly important artist." — The New York Times Known as one of the world's leading bel canto tenors, American-born Lawrence Brownlee has captivated audiences and critics alike with a wide range of roles from opera to contemporary music and jazz.

Film: Strong Island (2017) MetLiveArts in collaboration with media and culture writer Kali Holloway presents a nine-week summer series of edgy, timely, and pointedly political performances and films on the Fifth Floor of The Met Breuer. Theater of the Resist takes its name from art making—a technique where the artist uses opposing material to "resist" the medium and thus generating negative space in which to create. This series is presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Body Politic: Video from The Met Collection, on view at The Met Breuer, June 20–September 3, 2017. It will highlight dance, spoken word, music and film from communities that are outside the hegemony. Hosts include: political journalist and musician Kali Holloway, WQXR host Terrance McKnight, and musician and NYPR host/podcaster Helga Davis. Performances are free with Museum admission. Advanced registration recommended. This program is offered Free with Museum Admission, thanks to Janet and Howard Kagan and The Fan Fox & Lesley R. Samuels Foundation, Inc. The series is made possible by Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky.

When we were busking, we were filling so much space to keep the listener from walking away. Now we are in a very different situation." Adds group member Josiah Johnson, "We wanted to write songs that felt bigger, and didn't need to be so frantic. I think for the most part we wanted to record an album that sounds like the way we play now."

7 Crown Presents: Kevin Andreas, Gaylen Orlen, Roy Orbit - Drom
August 11, 2017 - New York

Driven by sound, Andreas has always pushed musical boundaries. He is always trying to stretch, grow, and in turn, hone his sound. The writer, producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, was raised in Upstate NY. Kevin began assembling bands in high school and started playing gigs on the weekends. He found himself jamming with adult musicians and being able to keep up. "That's how I started learning how to connect with audiences, and how to create music," he says. Kevin has a virtuosic gift when it comes to the guitar, but not one to be pinned down, he plays several other instruments as well. Andreas released an introductory project for fans that took off beyond expectation. Vents Magazine called it "sexy, haunting and utterly awesome" while Paste Magazine cited the song as an "empowering anthem that combines energetic instrumentation and rock bombast with a soft, soulful melody." A track was featured on Filtr's Spotify "NEW MUSIC" playlist, as well as Filtr's "Artists to Watch" Spotify playlist. By late 2016, the track had garnered enough acclaim to warrant Spotify to place it on "Discover Weekly," leading the track to garner 75k+ streams, all while still completely independent. Kevin just released his brand new single, "FRIEND$" in July of 2017. The new track has a soulful summer vibe, that features a catchy hook and an undeniable bouncy beat. Andreas is currently finishing up his debut solo LP and is looking to release the album in the coming months. Tracks featuring Andreas' otherworldly guitar playing, along with his contemporary pop and hip-hop sensibilities, will be highlighted on the LP. The new single "FRIEND$" and the forthcoming album are poised to launch Andreas to a larger audience and continued success.

rjd2 - Brooklyn Steel
August 11, 2017 - New York

Dame Fortune is the deliciously eclectic sixth album from veteran producer and crate digger extraordinaire RJD2, out March 25th on RJ's Electrical Connections. It's a wondrous beast, recorded over the past year while living in Philadelphia, before returning to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Streaked with Philly's rep for deeply felt soul music while maintaining a playful sense of adventurousness, Dame Fortune features guest vocalists Son Little (aka Aaron Livingston) and frequent collaborator Phonte, while also presenting the bombastic hip-hop sound that marked RJD2's breakthrough album, Deadringer, and even an orchestral composition for the societal unrest experienced in this day and age (called "PF Day One"…the PF standing for "Post Ferguson"). "Living in Philly provided a context for a lot of soul music that I had liked," RJD2 says on the city's influence on Dame Fortune's sound. "I didn't have any cultural context for this music that I liked—it was just music that I had stumbled across as a beat making nerd. Philly was a place where there were enough people who had the same musical vocabulary that I did, which made the music more than something I had just discovered on my own." The debut single, "Peace of What," features Jordan Brown and draws inspiration from 1990s rap legends Main Source's 1991 single "Peace Is Not the Word to Play." "When I hear people talk of peace in America, the discrepancy between our words and our actions can get fatiguing," he says on the inspiration behind the song. "I was trying to reflect the experience of people I know, which often feels like 'We're not ACTUALLY trying to do anything about this problem in our country.'" Thought-provoking and undeniably entertaining all at once, this latest exhibition of musical virtuosity is a crystal-clear reflection of RJD2's cinematic aspirations, reminding listeners that it's always rewarding to expect the unexpected. RJD2 will tour throughout 2016 in support of Dame Fortune and his 20-year-plus-career.

Anbessa Orchestra - Barbès
August 11, 2017 - New York

Anbessa Orchestra is a seven piece group based in New York that draws its inspiration from the kind of classic Ethiopian music anthologized on the cult Ethiopiques series. Anbessa’s approach to the music is personal, but never strays far from the 60’s and 70’s sound of the original. They play some better and lesser known tunes from some of the Ethiopian masters as well as their own compositions. The result is an original sound that would have fit nicely on the Ethio-funk scene of 1970’s Addis Ababa. Featuring Wayne Tucker- Trumpet; Eyal Vilner- Alto Saxophone; Eden Bareket- Baritone Saxophone; Nadav Peled- Guitar, Compositions, Arrangements; Dor Heled- Keyboards; Tamir Shmerling- Bass and Eran Fink- Drums

Kountry Wayne - Carolines on Broadway
Through August 12, 2017 - Times Square Theater District

Wayne Colley is a Superstar Comedian on the rise! However, if you asked him to describe himself, he would say he is just a humble guy from the small town of Millen, Georgia wishing to make sure he provides not only a stable life for his seven children, but also a lasting faith-based legacy. Not a flashy guy at all, Kountry Wayne, as he is known online, resides and runs two successful businesses in South Georgia. He currently has a following on social media of over 2.5 MILLION raving fans who fully support his comedic ventures. However this was not his intention from the start. Early on Kountry Wayne had visions of being a huge success in the music industry. Following that dream he placed his life savings behind a music venture. However, that did not yield him the success he had hoped for. During a time of soul searching he realized he was blessed with the gift to make people laugh and it blossomed from there. You have probably heard the stories of "starting from the bottom – now we here" before, but Wayne's story is a little different! Yes, there have been a few mistakes along the way, yet those same mistakes that could have defeated him have instead created a man who is resilient and even more focused on making sure the people he is graced enough to impact find laughter through the pain.

John Minnock - Metropolitan Room
August 12, 2017 - New York

"Every Day Blues" A new-breed vocalist who infuses diversity and modern interpretation into his jazz and blues show, John Minnock first gained popularity in Boston and is now a resident performer at the Metropolitan Room. He is the recipient of the "HotHouse Jazz 2016 Fans Decision Metropolitan Room Award", and recently released his debut album "Every Day Blues" (available at iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and CDBaby). An audience favorite rapidly building a large New York following, John combines great originality, musicality and showmanship with clever wit and irreverent comedy, presenting a high-energy and entertaining evening of jazz, blues, funk and R&B. "Like the best Irish coffee, Minnock's voice is smooth and bold, with a good dose of Bushmills to give it a smoldering kick…stellar chops…creative phrasing; impressive scatting" (Kevin Scott Hall, Bistro Awards). A classically trained musician, John's vocalizing recalls the likes of Billy Eckstein, Lou Rawls, George Benson and B.B. King. He often branches out into jazz improvisation and scat singing, and brings a rich history of the music to every performance. His wide repertoire of song renditions spans classic artists like King, Ruth Brown and Bill Withers to contemporaries such as Sara Bareilles, Amy Winehouse and Sam Smith. "One of the best versions of 'On Broadway' I've ever heard." (Bistro Awards). John leads a trio of accomplished musicians and keeps the energy moving throughout the evening. Before bringing his show to NYC, John performed weekly at Boston's Encore Lounge, in one of the most successful jazz gigs in Boston. The show was chosen as a "Featured Event" by The Boston Globe several times during its run. Previously, John performed in the group "Feed the Meter" and in performances at Acton Jazz Café. Born and raised in Albany, he has a degree in music from Boston University. "…an impressive vocalist, obviously well trained and practiced in his chosen fields of study." (Bistro Awards).

Back To The Eighties Show with Jessie's Girl, the world's hottest '80s tribute! - Le Poisson Rouge
August 12, 2017 - New York

Hilary Knight's Stage Struck World - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, LPA Café
Through August 12, 2017 - Manhattan

Hilary Knight was born stage-struck, ninety years ago. Best known as the illustrator of the American classic Eloise, he cites the performing arts as the single greatest influence on his life and career. As a child, Knight was fascinated by the circus and could not get enough of Broadway. His artist parents introduced him to musicals with Jumbo in 1935. His early theatrical influences were Ethel Merman in Red, Hot and Blue; Gertrude Lawrence in Lady in the Dark; and the sensational Carmen Miranda in The Streets of Paris. The movies were another source of inspiration and obsession. Designer Adrian's extravagant costumes for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) mesmerized him; child star Sabu in Elephant Boy (1937) became a hero. After studying at the Art Students' League with Reginald Marsh, and then a stint in the US Navy in World War II, Knight designed sets under the exacting eye of the legendary George Abbott at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine. Eloise became a national and international bestseller in the 1950's, and Knight's children's book career took off with titles such as Where's Wallace, and The Circus is Coming! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, including No, No, Nanette, Irene, Half a Sixpence, and the burlesque musical Sugar Babies, starring Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller, among many others. Now for the first time, Hilary Knight's stage-struck life is the subject of a comprehensive exhibition that includes original artwork for posters; theatrical illustrations for Vanity Fair magazine (where Knight is a contributing editor); Knight's most recent work — three-dimensional portraits in stage-like settings — and costume and set designs for performances and revues that reveal that for Hilary Knight, all the world is indeed a stage.

Radical Bodies - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, LPA Cafe
Through August 12, 2017 -

In August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin, the inventor of task-based improvisation, taught an experimental workshop on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful dance constructions premiered in Yoko Ono's loft in New York and Rainer co-founded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies examines the artistic relationships between Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, shedding light on each artist's contribution to history. Dance was a conceptual engine of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized, communitarian vision for performance that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day. Curated by Ninotchka D. Bennahum (Professor of Theater and Dance, UCSB), Wendy Perron (Former Editor in Chief, Dance Magazine; Adjunct Professor, NYU Tisch School of the Arts) and Bruce Robertson (Professor of Art History and Director of the AD&A Museum, UCSB), Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 – 1972 consists of photographs, rare films, and original choreographic scores and drawings by Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, as well as work inspired by them by such artists as Imogen Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, and George Brecht. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by University of California Press, with essays by Bennahum, Perron, and Robertson, as well as essays by John Rockwell (former dance critic of The New York Times), and Halprin collaborator Morton Subotnick. Also in the catalogue are never-before-published letters by Forti to Halprin in the early '60s. Organized by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara with generous support provided by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc., the Ceil and Michael Pulitzer Foundation, the Metabolic Studio, and Jody Gottfried Arnhold

ARTIST INFO God Street Wine -- Lo Faber (lead vocals, guitar), Aaron Maxwell (lead vocals, guitar), Dan Pifer (bass), Jon Bevo (keyboards), and Tom "Tomo" Osander (drums) -- formed in New York in 1988. In helping to form the early jam band scene, they played alongside bands like the Black Crowes, Dave Matthews Band, Blues Traveler and the Spin Doctors. They joined the H.O.R.D.E. Tour traveling festival in the '90s, recorded five studio albums, and performed more than 1,000 shows in their 11 years together. After experiencing several lineup changes in 1998, God Street Wine split up the next year, playing a three-night farewell engagement at the Wetlands Preserve in New York. Selected performances from these final shows were compiled into the posthumous live album "Good To the Last Drop" in 2000. The original five members reunited publicly in September 2001 for a farewell show to the Wetlands, as the celebrated venue was closing that month, then disbanded for nearly a decade. Following the band's dissolution Faber wrote and recorded two rock operas, and received his Ph.D. in History at Princeton University studying the transformation of New Orleans under American rule in the early 19th century; he is currently a college professor in New Orleans. In the last 13 years, Osander has continued to record with artists including Lisa Hannigan (Sea Sew), Damien Rice (O and 9) and Herbie Hancock (Possibilities); most recently, he is working with another singer-songwriter, Ultan Conlon. The other band members continue to play, and balance other professional pursuits: Pifer is as an executive at a digital media licensing company, Bevo works as a software engineer, and Maxwell works as a technology integrator at a private school. After almost a decade apart, God Street Wine reunited privately in 2009 to honor an old friend who had passed away. A year later they joined together on the public stage for four New York concerts benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and in 2011 played on the Jam Cruise. Since then, along with their old friend Jason Crosby, GSW continues to get together every now and then. They have played at Bob Weir's TRI Studios and Sweetwater Music Hall, rambles with Phil Lesh at Terrapin Crossroads, and various shows in NYC.

Buster Poindexter Residency - City Winery
August 12, 2017 - New York

Today, the words "blues" and "shouting" are, alas, inextricably linked, but what about the tradition of mellow blues crooners that extended through Charles Brown, Nat King Cole and, in their more romantic moments, Joe Williams and Ray Charles? "Buster Poindexter" (nee David Johansen) first attracted attention as a glam rock pioneer (in the New York Dolls, with whom he still tours) and then as an early MTV idol (with "Hot Hot Hot"). Yet with his big, deep, resonant voice, Buster Poindexter is most impressive as a crooner and occasional belter of ballads in the classic R&B tradition. His ongoing run affirms the point that however you know him, the artist known as Buster Poindexter, complete with his one-liners and longer comic monologues (not to mention his signature pompadour), is one of the most endearing and enduring entertainers currently trodding the boards in New York.

Youssou N'Dour / Yacouba Sissoko - BRIC
August 12, 2017 - Brooklyn

We close our season in majestic fashion with one of the great artists of our time, Senegalese singer Youssou N'Dour. Described as an "arresting tenor, with prophetic authority" (The New York Times) and "perhaps the most famous singer alive [in Africa]," (Rolling Stone) N'Dour helped develop mbalax, a propulsive, soulful genre of Senegalese music. At the age of 12, he began performing with the Star Band, one of Dakar's prominent bands of the early '70s, before going on to form his own Latin-influenced dance band, Étoile de Dakar, which properly launched his career as Senegal's first pop star. His world travels have included collaborations with Bruce Springsteen, Wyclef Jean, Paul Simon, and Branford Marsalis, among others. N'Dour has a long history of activism and civic duty. In 1985, he organized a concert to free Nelson Mandela, and worked with UNICEF and the United Nations to open internet cafes across Africa and connect Senegalese communities worldwide. In recent years, he has served stints as both Senegal's Minister of Tourism and as Special Adviser to the President. We are honored to invite such an important musical mind and public figure to our stage. Malian kora master YACOUBA SISSOKO plays while the sun sets.

Each reading is followed by a "Dollars and Sense" panel discussion with prominent New York producers, general managers and artistic directors focusing on potential venues, marketing and budgeting of the work. The purpose of the series is to help develop new plays, help producers develop the skills needed to produce new works, and foster the producer-writer relationship for future development beyond the series.   According to TRU Literary Manager Cate Cammarata, "The TRU Voices Reading Series has been a recognized path of new play development. I am proud of our success in finding engaging new work and giving writers a crucial stepping stone to productions in festivals (About Face NYMF 2008, OPA!

Theater companies and independent producers are invited to submit new work. TRU will provide the financial and physical resources for a developmental reading.  Writers are invited to submit, and are strongly encouraged to find an experienced sponsoring producer for their work (although they may submit without a producer and TRU will try to find one if the show makes it to finals).    We seek a diversity of works, commercial as well as experimental or "non-traditional" (e.g. exhibiting non-linear structure, experimental format, unusual musical form, unconventional themes, etc.), and shows with multi-racial significance, subject matter and/or cast. Minority playwrights will be given special consideration. Works may be as short as 75 minutes with no maximum length. However, you must be able to present in under 90 minutes, with no more than 12 actors (doubling is acceptable).    For more submission details, visit http://truonline.org/musicals-series-2018-guidelines/.   Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) is the leading network for developing theater professionals, a twenty-four year old 501c3 nonprofit organization created to help producers produce, emerging theater companies to emerge healthily and all theater professionals to understand and navigate the business of the arts.

Dead Men Dreaming - Mercury Lounge
August 12, 2017 - New York

Dead Men Dreaming is an American Hard Rock band formed in New York in 2004 by a group of friends who grew up in the same neighborhood. After tearing up the local scene and releasing a few demos independently, DMD got into the studio in 2006 to record their first full length album, a self-titled release that was one of CMJ's top 5 most added albums in April of 2007. Following another successful release in 2008, the band headlined their own shows at New York's Gramercy Theater and Irving Plaza as well performing at the Nokia Theater in Times Square and Bamboozle 2009 in New Jersey. In addition to their extensive touring of the east coast, mid-west and California, notably at the Whisky-A-Gogo, DMD has also played several South By Southwest music festivals since 2007. In 2010, singer/keyboardist Mike Triana, lead guitarist Anthony Bordonaro, rhythm guitarist Paul Riccobono, bassist Rich Riccobono and drummer Dima Shnaydman began working on new material. DMD enlisted platinum record producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Hoobastank) to help bring out the very best of the band's more refined and mature sounding songs, and with Jim at the helm, they recorded their most inspired work to date, "Last Call," which combines the decadent attitude of 80's rock with a visceral modern sound. After debuting "Last Call" to a sell-out crowd at Gramercy Theater, and due to a recent buzz from their loyal fans since their recent 3 year hiatus, DMD is hitting the stage again full force at the Mercury Lounge in NYC on August 12th.

Summer Thunder - Featuring Pill+Running, Gold Dime - Union Pool
August 12, 2017 - Brooklyn

PILL is the young collaboration between artists Veronica Torres, Andrew Spaulding, Jonathan Campolo and Benjamin Jaffe. PILL's recordings combine fast, forward-thinking lyrics that express social unrest with a painterly contempt for rock formalism. The four-piece draw from a deep pool of influences including New York City noise, krautrock, Sun Ra modalities, telepathic dreams and all six senses.Running The screech. The wail. The slanted-floor nausea. There's not a word for the signature cyclical howling that Chicago's Running have harnessed and tortured into submission. They play with their food before they eat…flay into a terse punk trance, a Kraut-beat psycho riff for ages, mesmerize or terrorize…but invariably they unleash The Sound upon us just when it seems most likely to bring back your lunch. That they've built such a mean, spare, and evil band around such chaos is to our benefit - the circular mayhem alone would be a fascinating stand-alone curiosity - but lucky for us, they've captured their cacophonous, rotten heart in the black glove of blank-stare punk.GOLD DIME is Andrya Ambro, former member of the noise rock duo Talk Normal. Gold Dime has been performing live as a trio since 2014, opening for the likes of Lower Dens, U.S. Girls and Guerilla Toss. Currently Ambro is joined on stage by Adam Markiewicz on bass and Jessica Ackerley on guitar. This music is intimate, aggressive and on fire. Debut album out soon.

Jewish Food Tour of New York - Lower East Side
August 12, 2017 - New York

At the turn of the 20th century, when the Lower East Side was the most densely populated place in the world, the vast majority of the district's 550,000 residents were Jewish. The Lower East Side was the first port of call for millions of Jews fleeing persecution in Eastern Europe. Over a century later, we set off to explore the ancestral gateway to America through the diverse cooking traditions of the Jewish diaspora, and through the food discover the history and cultural legacy of Jewish culture in New York. Did Jews become assimilated to New York, or the other way around: New York assimilated to the Jews! Comedian Lenny Bruce declared: “It doesn’t matter, even if you’re Catholic. If you live in New York, you’re Jewish. If you live in Butte, Montana, you are going to be goyish if you’re Jewish.” JEWISH FOOD TOUR OF NEW YORK Jewish Cuisine Bagels and lox, Knish, Matzo, Bialy, and much more! Jewish History in NYC Did you know the first significant group of Jews to come to New York, then the colony New Amsterdam, came in September 1654 as refugees from Recife, Brazil? Famous Jewish New Yorkers Edward Koch, Woody Allen, Estee Lauder, and many more! Aside from the food and culture, there is much more to experience on the tour, from street art to hipster watching, and the charm of the LES, there are many more hidden stories and secrets in store on this cultural dive into the LES.

Henry VI Part 3 - La Plaza @ The Clemente Parking Lot
Through August 12, 2017 - New York City

SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARKING LOT TO PRESENT "HENRY VI PART 3" IN SUITS. Production compares Wars of the Roses with our current political polarization and illuminates the tenacity of irreconcilable conflicts, including current civil and sectarian wars. July 27 to August 12, 2017 La Plaza @ The Clemente Parking Lot, 114 Norfolk Street (E. side of Norfolk St. between Delancey and Rivington) Thursdays - Saturdays at 7:00 PM FREE Subways: F to Delancey Street, M to Essex Street. Presented by The Drilling Company More info call 212-877-0099 or visit www.drillingcompany.org We can gain insight into our current polarized politics from Shakespeare's plays on the Wars of the Roses. That's why Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, presented by The Drilling Company, will present "Henry VI Part 3" from July 27 to August 12. The play, which is seldom done, lays bare the passions of the Medieval English war between York and Lancaster. In doing so, it illuminates the animosity between today's Republicans and Democrats on one hand and the tenacity of irreconcilable conflicts, including current civil and sectarian wars, on the other. Hamilton Clancy directs. The Drilling Company has been producer of Shakespeare in the Parking Lot since 2006 and is also the exclusive producer of Shakespeare plays in Bryant Park. "Henry VI Part 3" revisits the late 1400's, when a series of wars for control of the throne set the House of Lancaster (symbolized by a red rose) against the House of York (symbolized by a white one). This play is one of four in Shakespeare's canon ("Henry VI, Parts 1-3" and "Richard III") that deal with the horrors of these conflicts, which threw the stable country into pandemonium as families broke down and moral codes were vitiated for the sake of payback and power. Hamilton Clancy's adaptation will dress the characters in suits, not armor. He explains, "This is the best play in the canon to reflect our current political polarization. The pitched battle between the two sides seems impossible to reconcile, and that is how we find the public discourse between Republicans and Democrats today." Clancy says, "Our political discourse is very violent already. We of course are hopeful that it does not get any more violent than it has been recently." He explains that the company considered doing "Julius Caesar" and "Richard III," but considered "Henry VI Part 3" a better match for the confusion of our current time. "It better reflects the antagonism of the two sides and we believe that it matches public discourse on leadership and politics," he says. The play is also the most violent one in the Shakespeare canon, with more battle scenes (four on stage, one reported) than any of the other plays. Of course, there are some differences between 15th Century England and our current situation. "It doesn't line up exactly," says Clancy, "so you won't see Trump or Gingrich in it." But putting it in a contemporary setting will make it easy for people to recognize that we are in a political battle. He explains, "We are looking for opportunities to elucidate how violence is not just the violence of weaponry. It is also the violence of legislation that would cause destruction to people." Clancy also sees the play as instructive on political nepotism. Originally, he thought of interpreting the two houses like crime families, but discarded that approach because "although some of it matched, we have gotten numb to crime family things." Still, he concedes, "we have a leader who delegates power to his family and talks like a gangster. And loyalty is how he does business." "Henry VI Part 3" is infrequently produced. The Public Theater presented the three parts of Henry VI in Central Park in 1970 as the heavily adapted "Wars of the Roses," directed by Stuart Vaughan. The institution presented the three plays again in 1996 in two three-hour parts at its Astor Place location, directed by Karin Coonrod. Last year, BBC offered the play as part of its four-part series, "The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses." Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, now 23 years old, has never before presented this history play and there is no record of it being produced in any other parking lot. But in their day, Shakespeare's plays of battle, intrigue and betrayal were immensely popular and tremendously entertaining. Their formula precedes such modern analogues as "House of Cards." Their moral impact could also not be overstated: the father-and-son battle scene in "Henry VI Part 3" is one of the most heart-rendering battle scenes in the canon. The play's central point of focus is Henry VI himself, whom Clancy views as "historically a kind of pacifist" and who tried unsuccessfully to navigate a compromise between the two warring sides. The play contains provocative dialogue about the role and possibility of peacemaking during societal conflict. The King will be played by Schuyler Gallun, who as of this writing is appearing in "Terezin," an acclaimed World War II play on Theater Row. Parking Lot regulars will recognize Richard of Gloucester as Alessandro Colla, revisiting a role he vividly discovered as Richard III in the Parking Lot in 2013. Lady Margaret will be played by Evangeline Fontaine, who played opposite Colla as Kate in The Drilling Company's "TheTaming of the Shrew" in Bryant Park in 2015. The cast also incudes Joe Clancy (Rutand), Rice Dutton (ensemble), Eddie Fields (George), Brad Frost (Westmoreland), Skyler Gallun (Henry VI), Christopher Gooley (ensemble), Bill Green (York), Kyle Maxwell (Warwick), Erin Noll (Prince Edward), Kendra Oberhauser (Lady Grey), Ben Peterson (Exeter), Lee Seymour* (Edward) and Ross Stoner (Clifford). Assistant director is Maggie Goldberg. Stage Managers are Em Hornbeck and Joseph Treimanis. Assistant Stage Manager is Rachel Jeffries. IF YOU GO "Henry VI Part 3" will be performed July 27 to August 12, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:00 PM and all admission is free. Seats are available on a first come first served basis, with audience members often arriving early to secure a place. Audience members are welcome to bring their own chairs. Once seats are gone, blankets are spread out. No one has ever been turned away and there's never a wait for tickets.

Unhinged-- A Women's Work Short Play Festival - New Perspectives Theatre
Through August 12, 2017 - New York

New Perspectives Theatre Company (NPTC) is pleased to announce UNHINGED, our 10th Annual Women's Work Short Play Festival, running Monday, August 7 to Saturday, August 12, 2017. The Festival performs in two programs on an alternating schedule of 4:00pm and 8:00pm, with a combined program on August 12th at NPTC Studio, 458 West 37th Street (at 10th Avenue.) The festival is comprised of six plays in two programs. Program A includes: Doors of Perception by Cara Hall, directed by Melissa Skirboll; Daughters of the Evolution by Rae Binstock, directed by Melody Brooks; Sex With Robots by Holly Hepp-Galván, directed by Mary Hodges. Program B includes The Call of the Void by Kendra Augustin and Oh My, Goodness by Cayenne Douglass, directed by Mary McGinley; and Sublet by Alissa Zhulina, directed by Alex Keegan. Now celebrating its 10th year, NPTC’s Women’s Work LAB offers a festival each year with plays created from scratch starting in February. Artistic Director Melody Brooks provides a theme to new members, then resident directors collectively dramaturge the scripts and bring them to production quality over a five-month period. The festival then provides the critical development tool of putting scripts on their feet, fully rehearsed in a simple production style. The theme of UNHINGED was inspired (as all themes have been) by the social and political discourse percolating in the U.S. at the start of a new LAB. This year our theme selected itself! After an intensive and wide-ranging discussion of the topic each writer found her own take on this theme—from literal perspectives to more metaphorical explorations of things broken and coming apart. The resulting plays are as unique and diverse as the talented writers who created them. Program A begins with Doors of Perception, by Cara Hall, which uses a seemingly familiar tale of hubris gone horribly wrong to make us think about the lens through which we view tabloid events. Daughters of the Evolution, by Rae Binstock, brings together a rowdy group of disparate women from across time and space to engage in the essential political question of today: "what DO women want"? The program concludes with Holly Hepp-Galván's comedy Sex With Robots, about a boy, a sex toy, and a greedy Mom. The future is already here! Program B opens with The Call of the Void, Kendra Augustin's fresh contemplation of the true cost of domestic violence, while Alisa Zhulina's hilarious Sublet is an express journey to NYC roommate hell fueled by outsized artistic ambition. Oh My, Goodness, a profound gem by Cayenne Douglass inspired by a real event, ends the program on a hopeful note as one small act of kindness leads to a big transformation for a woman who has reached the end of the road. The plays are directed by Melody Brooks, Mary Hodges, Alex Keegan, Mary McGinley, and Melissa Skirboll. Meganne George serves as Production Designer, NPTC is an award-winning, multi-racial company performing in the Theatre District and communities throughout NYC. Now entering its 26th season, notable productions have included Richard III, starring Austin Pendleton; The Taming of the Shrew (OOBR Award for Excellence), Exhibit #9 by Tracy Scott Wilson (Audelco Award); Jihad, The Play by Ann Chamberlain (OOBR Award for Excellence); Admissions by Tony Velella (10 Best Plays Citation, Backstage); the premiere of The Shaneequa Chronicles by OBIE-Winner Stephanie Berry (with Blackberry Productions); Anatomy of a Love Affair by Deirdre Hollman (Optioned by Essence Entertainment); MOTHER OF GOD! by Michele Miller (Princess Grace Foundation Finalist) and innovative productions of Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet, Othello, and Julius Caesar. The Company’s mission is to develop and produce new plays and playwrights, especially women and people of color; to present classic plays in a style that addresses contemporary issues; and to extend the benefits of theatre to young people and communities in need. Our aim is not to exclude, but to cast a wider net. SCHEDULE: (Press Performances August 7-12, 2017) Program A: August 7, 9, 11 @ 4:00pm August 8, 10 @ 8:00pm Saturday, August 12 @ 5:00pm Program B: August 7, 9, 11 @ 8:00pm August 8, 10 @ 4:00pm Saturday, August 12 @ 2:00pm Tickets: $20 /$15/students and seniors w/ID; TDF accepted weekdays at 4:00pm FESTIVAL PASS $30 (see both programs): Advance Sale at www.nptnyc.org; Reservations: 212-630-9945; contact@nptnyc.org SEATING IS EXTREMELY LIMITED; SEATS GUARANTEED ONLY VIA ADVANCE PURCHASE Location: All performances at New Perspectives Studio, 458 West 37th Street (at 10th Avenue)

P Credit Course: Rhythm & Power: Dance, Immigration, and Community Action in Nyc History - Museum of the City of New York
Through August 12, 2017 - New York

José "Yogui" Rosario. Dancers, Randall's Island, c. 1974. Courtesy of José "Yogui" Rosario and Pablo E. Yglesias. Course Information 3 P Credits (with ASPDP registration) 36 course hours The Museum of the City of New York is a CTLE certified provider. Course Description Get energized and have fun this summer as you learn about the history of New York City's diverse population and rich immigrant cultures through the lens of dance. Experience and practice multiple engagement strategies and write lessons that engage your students through music, dance, cultural studies, and history. Suitable for educators of all grades – and requiring no prior dance experience (or ability!) – this course is inspired by the Museum of the City of New York's newest exhibition, Rhythm & Power: Salsa in New York (open June 14 - November 26, 2017). Learn about salsa's often-overlooked ties to activism in the city; how swing challenged racial segregation during the Harlem Renaissance; how hip hop was born on the streets of New York City in the 1970s and grew to have a global impact on music, dance, and fashion; and how bachata is bringing new beats to New York alongside immigrants from the Dominican Republic - currently the city's largest immigrant group. Throughout, find connections between dance and the power of communities to enact change and shape their own identities, and leave with resources and strategies to bring these stories into your classroom. Each day of the course will use a different dance and musical style as an entry point for examining a case study of 20th century immigration and community development in New York City. Focusing on salsa, swing, hip hop, and bachata, participants will gain a deep appreciation of these musical styles and the rich cultures from which they are born. Dance instructors – themselves with engaging stories to tell of their communities – will connect participants directly to the art form. Simultaneously, participants will examine how New York as a place of density, diversity, money, and creativity – key themes in the Museum's collection and exhibitions – has influenced the development of each dance. Scholars, curators, and museum educators will lead engaging talks, tours, and workshops that illuminate New York's role as a place of cultural fusion, artistry, and skilled marketing. Participants will leave with new ways to engage their students, a set of lesson plans they've written for their classroom, and a new appreciation for their city and the many communities it holds.

"Checks and Balances, or Bottoms Up!" @ Tompkins Square Park - Tompkins Square Park
August 12, 2017 - New York

Theater for the New City's 41st Street Theater tour will be "Checks and Balances, or Bottoms Up!" Rip-roaring musical tours City's streets, parks and playgrounds August 5 to September 17. A teacher, subway conductor and neighborhood school girl lead community activists in the fight against the monster of apple pie fascism and threats of planetary death from the pumpkin head of state. WHERE AND WHEN: August 5 to September 17 (critics invited to all performances). In NYC streets, parks, and playgrounds throughout the five boroughs. See complete schedule at bottom of this document. Presented by Theater for the New City (www.theaterforthenewcity.net). Free to the public. Audience info (212) 254-1109. Runs 1:15. Critics are invited to all performances. Photos are available at: https://goo.gl/photos/13TxHj8WMNY19TWw8 NEW YORK, June 28 -- This year, the American theater has been responding to the change in national politics with infuriation, vexation, and distrust. Satires abound. Classics are widely being reinterpreted into a modern context. There will likely be a wave of modernist plays on the "new human condition" -- witnessing the downfall of the civil society but being powerless to do anything about it. Playwright/director Crystal Field, Artistic Director of Theater for the New City (TNC), opposes powerlessness and maintains that small people can fend off tyranny through local activism. That's the idea behind "Checks and Balances, or Bottoms Up!," her newest made-for-outdoors musical, that she will direct for Theater for the New City's award-winning Street Theater Company. The piece will tour City streets, parks and playgrounds in free performances throughout all five boroughs August 5 to September 17. (Schedule follows at bottom of this document.) Field has written book and lyrics and Joseph A. Banks has written the score. In the piece, a young New York School girl is galvanized into a community activist and together with key allies, learns to fight back against forces of tyranny, prejudice and hatred. TNC's street theater productions typically provide a bouncy joyride through the undulations of the body politic with astute commentary couched in satire, song and slapstick. Their scores are a mix of music from Bossa Nova to Hip Hop to Musical Comedy to Gilbert & Sullivan. They are delightfully suited for family audiences, since complex social issues are often presented through children's allegories, with children and neighborhood people as the heroes. A brand new work has been presented annually since 1976. In "Checks and Balances, or Bottoms Up!," a Gotham school girl learns to be a feminist activist after being deemed a white elitist by her friends. Not least of her motivations is the injustice and callousness of a certain giant puppet who represents the dominion of arrogance and calls to passing women, "Here pussy, pussy, pussy!" During a spontaneous protest by subway passengers on the L train, this unlikely heroine acquires two key allies--a subway conductor and a teacher--and is inspired by three others--a Buddhist monk disguised as an itinerant bum, an investigative reporter and a blue fairy. Together, they witness the agony of deportation, the shortage of health-care, the misery of unemployment, the threats to clean air and water, and the fight to stifle the free press. So they set out to thwart the monster of apple pie fascism and threats of planetary death from the pumpkin head of state. The phrase "bottoms up" in the title refers to our need to organize decent people from the bottom up, not from the top down. Other characters of the piece include a walking and dancing Statue of Liberty, guys in suits who celebrate the "digitally literate elite, the tourist trade, the engineering elite and corporate princes," and immigrants from all over the world who get shoved around. Highlights of the spectacle-filled production will include a Fake News Ballet with a chorus of women dressed in newsprint, a giant Statue of Liberty puppet (which is dismembered by the villains and carried off), a song named "Sanctuary City Blues" and a Spirit of Trump apparition which rises above the stage as its two arms--with their little hands--envelop the stage. The aforementioned Blue Fairy has a quiver full of love glitter and he brings people together with it but he is never happy himself. Ultimately, he throws his love potion on the Pumpkin Head of State and the demon melts like a wicked witch, crying TWEET TWEET while sliding down the trap. The production will be staged with an elaborate assemblage of trap doors, giant puppets, smoke machines, masks, original choreography and a huge (9' x 12') running screen or "cranky" providing continuous movement behind the actors. The company of 28 actors, teb crew members, two assistant directors, two stage managers and five live musicians (led by the composer at the keyboard) will share the challenge of performing outside and holding a large, non-captive audience. ABOUT THE AUTHORS Author/director Crystal Field, with an Associate's Degree in Dance from Julliard and a Bachelor's from Hunter, began writing street theater in 1968 as a member of Theater of the Living Arts in Philadelphia. She wrote and performed her own outdoor theater pieces against the Vietnam War and also curated and performed many poetry programs for the Philadelphia Public Schools. There she found tremendous enthusiasm and comprehension on the part of poor and minority students for both modern and classical poetry when presented in a context of relevancy to current issues. She realized that for poetry to find its true audience, the bonds of authoritarian criticism must and can be transcended. Her earliest New York street productions were playlets written in Philadelphia and performed on the flatbed truck of Bread and Puppet Theater in Central Park. Peter Schumann, director of that troupe, was her first NY artistic supporter. In 1971, Ms. Field became a protégé of Robert Nichols, founder of the Judson Poets Theater in Manhattan. It is an interesting historic note that "The Expressway" by Robert Nichols, directed by Crystal Field (a Street theater satire about Robert Moses' plan for a through way to run across Little Italy from the West Side Highway to the FDR Drive). It was actually the first production of Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival. Nichols wrote street theater plays for TNC in its early years, but as time went on, wrote scenarios and only the first lines of songs, leaving Field to "fill in the blanks." When Nichols announced his retirement to Vermont in 1975, he urged Field to "write your own." The undertaking, while stressful at first, became the impetus for her to express her own topical political philosophy and to immerse her plays in that special brand of humor referred to often as "that brainy slapstick." Her first complete work was "Mama Liberty's Bicentennial Party" (1976), in honor of the 200th anniversary of the American Revolution. Field has written and directed a completely new opera for the TNC Street Theater company each successive year. She collaborated for eleven years with composer Mark Hardwick, whose "Pump Boys and Dinettes" and "Oil City Symphony" were inspired by his street theater work with Ms. Field. At the time of his death from AIDS in 1994, he was writing a clown musical with Field called "On the Road," which was never finished. One long-running actor in TNC street theater was Tim Robbins, who was a member of the company for six years in the 1980s, from age twelve to 18. The Village Halloween Parade, which TNC produced single-handedly for the Parade's first two years, grew out of the procession which preceded each Street Theater production. Ralph Lee, who created the Parade with Ms. Field, was chief designer for TNC's Street Theater for four years before the Village Halloween Parade began. Field has also written for TNC's annual Halloween Ball and for an annual Yuletime pageant that was performed outdoors for 2,000 children on the Saturday before Christmas. She has written two full-length indoor plays, "Upstate" and "One Director Against His Cast." She is Executive Director of TNC. Composer Joseph-Vernon Banks has written original music for the TNC street theater productions "Election Selection, or You Bet!," "Teach it Right, or Right to Teach," "EMERGENCY!!! or The World Takes A Selfie," "99% "Reduced Fat, or, You Can Bank On Us," "Bamboozled, or the Real Reality Show," "Tap Dance," "State Of The Union," "The Patients Are Running The Asylum," "Bio-Tech," "Code Orange: on the M15," "Social Insecurity," "Buckle My Shoe" and "Gone Fission: Alternative Power," all with book and lyrics by Crystal Field. His other TNC productions include music and lyrics for "Life's Too Short To Cry" by Michael Vazquez. His awards include a Meet The Composer Grant, the ASCAP Special Awards Program, and a fellowship from the Tisch Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program at NYU. His musical "Girlfriends!" premiered at The Goodspeed Opera House. He has been a composer–in-residence in The Tribeca Performing Arts Center Work and Show Series and is a member of The Dramatists Guild.

Doug Varone and Dancers presents DEVICES: Choreographic Intensive & Mentorship Program Showcase Featuring 12 New Works-in-Progress - Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center
Through August 12, 2017 - New York

Doug Varone and Dancers  DEVICES: Choreographic Intensive & Mentorship Program Showcase Featuring 12 new works-in-progress August 10 - 12, 2017 at 7:30pm New York City's famed Doug Varone and Dancers will once again present the DEVICES: Choreographic Intensive & Mentorship Program Showcase from Thursday, August 10 - Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 7:30pm at Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center, 280 Broadway (Entrance at 53A Chambers), NYC. Tickets are $12 in advance and $17 at the door, and will be available at https://gibneydance.org/performance/. DEVICES showcases 12 original works (in process), developed under the mentorship of Doug Varone, by a diverse group of emerging artists, all at varied points in their careers. The evenings will feature works by Jee Ahn, Jennifer Boissiere, Rodney Brown, Alison Cook-Beatty, Doug Gillespie, Ilana Goldman, Charlotte Griffin, Carolyn Hoehner, Susan Koper, Teddy Tedholm, Morgan Teel, and Nichele Van Portfleet.   DEVICES: Choreographic Intensive & Mentorship Program is a one-on-one mentorship program with Doug Varone for experienced choreographers that took place from May 28 - June 2, 2017 at Hunter College. A unique program celebrating its fourth year, the entire scope of the mentorship is divided into three distinct parts over the course of several months. The program kicked off with a week-long intensive retreat at Hunter College wherein Doug shared ideas about craft, design and composition through finely honed creative games and devices in which an abundance of material is built quickly then carefully shaped and molded. Participants created studies using dancers selected by Doug and the Company. Company members served as guides and moderators throughout the week. Over the following months, Doug continues to mentor each participant one on one as they independently create a new work on their own dancers.    "I began the DEVICES program because I felt there was a lack of opportunity for emerging choreographers to continue their craft. This program gives them a safe haven to try new ideas and to lend a guiding eye to oversee their creative process. The diversity of artists that have participated the past three years has been wide ranging in both age and experience, building a rare community of dance makers at varied points in their careers."           -Doug Varone   "DEVICES gave me the freedom to take risks and further develop my voice while receiving feedback from someone I respect and a group of talented peers." Participant, 2016   "The work I made in DEVICES jettisoned me to the next level as a choreographer." Selene Carter, 2014   "DEVICES is unlike any other intensive out there right now." AJ Sharp, 2015   "Because of DEVICES, I was able to take my choreography to another level." AJ Sharp, 2015   "DEVICES is like a creative think tank for choreographers, personally guided by the world renowned innovator, Doug Varone." Nyama McCarthy-Brown, 2015     DEVICES is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.     DOUG VARONE, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Award-winning choreographer and director Doug Varone works in dance, theatre, opera, film, and fashion. He is a passionate educator and articulate advocate for dance. His work is known for its emotional range, kinetic breadth and the diversity of genres in which he works. His New York City-based Doug Varone and Dancers has been commissioned and presented to critical acclaim by leading international venues for three decades. In the concert dance world, Varone has created a body of works globally. Commissions include the Limón Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Rambert Dance Company (London), Martha Graham Dance Company, Dancemakers (Canada), Batsheva Dance Company (Israel), Bern Ballet (Switzerland) and An Creative (Japan), among others. In addition, his dances have been staged on more than 75 college and university programs around the country. In opera, Doug Varone is in demand as both a director and choreographer. Among his four productions at The Metropolitan Opera are Salome, the world premiere of Tobias Picker's An American Tragedy, and Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps, designed by David Hockney. His Met Opera production of Hector Berloiz's Les Troyens was broadcast worldwide in HD. He has directed multiple premieres for Minnesota Opera, Opera Colorado, Washington Opera, New York City Opera, and Boston Lyric Opera, among others. His numerous theatre credits include choreography for Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatres across the country. His choreography for 2012's musical Murder Ballad at Manhattan Theatre Club earned him a Lortel Award nomination. Film credits include choreography for the Patrick Swayze film, One Last Dance. In 2008, Varone's Bottomland, set in the Mammoth Caves of Kentucky, was the subject of PBS's Dance in America: Wolf Trap's Face of America. Last season, he directed and choreographed MasterVoices' production of Dido and Aeneas at New York City Center, starring Tony Award winners Kelli O'Hara and Victoria Clark, alongside the Company. Most recently, he directed the staging of Julia Wolfe's Pulitzer Prize winning oratorio, Anthracite Fields for the Westminster Choir and the Bang on a Can All-Stars. Varone received his BFA from Purchase College where he was awarded the President's Distinguished Alumni Award in 2007. Numerous honors and awards include a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, an OBIE Award (for Lincoln Center's Orpheus and Eurydice), the Jerome Robbins Fellowship at the Boglaisco Institute in Italy, two individual Bessie Awards, two American Dance Festival Doris Duke Awards for New Work, and four National Dance Project Awards. In 2015, Varone was awarded both a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Dance Guild. Varone teaches workshops and master classes around the world for dancers, musicians and actors. He is currently on the faculty at Purchase College, teaching composition and choreography.      "Doug Varone and Dancers command attention as soon as the curtain goes up. Rarely do you find a choreographer so dedicated to the full and generous complexity of the human spirit. Many choreographers can create interesting movement; few can make it mean so much."  - CHICAGO TRIBUNE   "Varone has an unquenchable instinct for expressing the vagaries of the human heart."  - ARTS JOURNAL   "This is a company of master dancers, performing masterly choreography."  - NEWSDAY     DOUG VARONE AND DANCERS  The recipient of 11 Bessie Awards, Doug Varone and Dancers has toured to more than 125 cities in 45 states across the US and in Europe, Asia, Canada, and South America. Stages include The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York City Center, San Francisco Performances, London's Queen Elizabeth Hall, Toronto's Harbourfront, Moscow's Stanislavsky Theatre, Buenos Aires' Teatro San Martin, the Venice Biennale, and the Tokyo, Bates, Jacob's Pillow and American Dance Festivals. In opera and theatre, the Company regularly collaborates on the many Varone-directed or choreographed productions that have been produced around the world. Doug Varone and Dancers continues to be among the most sought-after ambassadors and educators in the field. The Company's multidisciplinary residency programs take audiences deeper into the work, with a hands-on approach that moves beyond the studio to speak directly to people of all ages and backgrounds, both dancers and non-dancers alike. Our annual intensive workshops at leading universities have attracted students and professionals from around the country, and through our innovative DEVICES choreographic mentorship program, we are training the next generation of artists and dance-makers. Whether on the concert stage, in opera or theatre or on the screen, choreographer Doug Varone creates kinetically thrilling dances with rich musicality and emotional depth. From the smallest gesture to full-throttle bursts of movement, Varone's work can take your breath away with both its athleticism and its passion. www.dougvaroneanddancers.org

Dion Flynn Works Well with Others - The PIT (Peoples Improv Theater)
August 12, 2017 - New York

DION FLYNN is best known as Barack Obama on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and has over 60 appearances as 14 different characters on both The Tonight Show & Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon. Cited by Oprah aMagazine as "one of our favorite creative thinkers..." Dion's solo improv has been described as: "Alternately maniacal and tender, vulnerable and ballsy, Dion Flynn looses his brand of liquid, synapse-rich comedy in an evening of interactive improv which takes the audience on a loopy, looping comic odyssey from which the ghosts of Orson Welles and Spalding Grey are never far. Flynn's mind is both shock and absorber, as spongy and receptive as the suspension in a New York taxicab: pretty soon, you're flying." — Tom Shone, Film Critic, Intelligent Life "Dion Flynn's solo theatrical improvisations are what it would be if Jackson Pollack and James Joyce did comedy." -An audience member named Nick, pressed for comment during a show by Dion. "Dion's solo performance at The PIT is an experience. He takes the audience on the same journey he is going through as he figures out his show/performance art piece/happening. And it's all in an empty space, armed with only a microphone, a couch and a piano. It's a magic show where you get to see the magician astounded by his own illusions. Dion is a natural improviser, a born-performer, and it certainly shows in this impressive weekly solo improv piece. In a world of so many 8-person improv teams and shows, it is refreshing to see someone take the risk of going at it alone--and it is a special treat that it happens to be Dion Flynn." - Chris Aurillio

The Erik Satie Quartet - Barbès
August 12, 2017 - New York

The Erik Satie Quartet is a wind group whose focus of repertoire starts with Erik Satie, his times, and beyond. The four lithe and muscular voices present music that is unique and strange for the uninitiated, yet with warmth and humanity at its core. The group performs the second Saturday of every month at 4 PM, phonometrically calculated to be the perfect time of day for a Pernod. Repertoire is drawn from the works of Milhaud, Auric, Poulenc, Stravinsky, Britten, Durey, Sibelius, and of course the Velvet Gentleman himself. Featuring arrangements by leader and trombonist Ron Hay, the group includes Alex Hamlin (bari sax/clarinet), Max Seigel (bass trombone), Ben Holmes (trumpet/flugelhorn)

Pangari & the Socialites - Barbès
August 12, 2017 - New York

The Socialites take their cues from classic jamaican groups with a repertoire of vintage ska, rock steady, soul and early reggae. With Nick Anderson - drums; Mark Marshal l- guitar; Ari Folman-Cohen - bass; Kevin Moehringer - trombone; Pasquale Cangiano - trumpet; Akie Bermiss - vocals and piano; Kyle Nasser - sax and Alex Spiegelman - alto sax,Pangari & the Socialites are probably at the top of the pool of New York bands most likely to change their name. They're a bunch of up-and-coming jazz types playing ska…just like the Skatalites were doing fifty-plus years ago. While this roughly ten-piece ensemble isn't mashing up calypso, jazz and early 60s American soul music and inventing a brand new style like Lloyd Knibb, Don Drummond and the rest of that iconic Jamaican crew, they do justice to the group's classics and also some obscurities. And just like the Skatalites would do in concert, they really stretch the songs out.

Popgun Presents Frankie Rose (Album Release Party!) Tempers, War Bubble - Baby's All Right
August 12, 2017 - New York

After spending years as a major presence in Brooklyn's thriving music scene, Frankie Rose relocated to her familial home of Los Angeles for 18 months. Frankie's intent was to establish yet another moment in her storied indie rock métier. Gradually, she found herself short on sleep, funds and optimism. "I moved to L.A., drama ensued and I ended up on a catering truck. I was like, how can this be my life after being a touring musician and living off of music. I had really lost my way and I thought I was totally done." Through sleepless nights of listening to broadcaster Art Bell's paranormal-themed archives, Frankie's thoughts had turned to "who am I, I'm not cut out for this business, it's not for me." She continues, "I was literally in my room in L.A., not knowing how I was going to get out. But out of it all, I just decided to keep making music, because it is what I love and what I do – regardless of the outcome." Towards the end of her time spent in Los Angeles, Frankie reached out to Jorge Elbrecht (Tamaryn, Gang Gang Dance, Violens) and began sketching what became the basic outline of what felt like a new album. Tempers are Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper, a New York-based synth/goth/electro/rock duo. Their music inhabits a realm of opaque romance. Delphic vocals tower precariously over propulsive beats, and shimmering, static-like synths merge with guitars that swell and vanish. Their live performances are a portal into a red-lit shadow world, exploring the thin line between freedom and oblivion. Jasmine invokes a kind of Leonard Cohen muse, channeling a Blue Velvet dialectic of hypnotic abandonment and illuminated purpose. Beside her, Eddie is a dispassionate master of ceremonies, a sphinx-like solidity in the ether. Tempers create architecture within the searing thrum; concrete tones in ghost form.

Making Space: Women Artists and Post War Abstraction - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through August 13, 2017 - New York

(now-8/13) Making Space: Women Artists & Postwar Abstractions at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Making Space shines a spotlight on the stunning but still relatively under-recognized achievements of women artists between the end of World War II (1945) and the start of the Feminist movement (around 1968). In the postwar era, societal shifts made it possible for larger numbers of women to work professionally as artists, yet their work was often dismissed in the male dominated art world, and few support networks existed for them. Abstraction dominated artistic practice during these years, as many artists working in the aftermath of World War II sought an international language that might transcend national and regional narratives—and for women artists, additionally, those relating to gender.

Dogumenta - Arts Brookfield
Through August 13, 2017 - New York

Brookfield Place New York Waterfront Plaza America's first art exhibition for dogs, dOGUMENTA, opens at Brookfield Place New York this August! Not by or about dogs, dOGUMENTA is a curated art show for dogs. The exhibition is the first in America to ask artists to address the canine community's concerns, interests and worldview and to make artwork catering to a four-legged sensibility. Featuring original artworks intended to intrigue and engage our furry friends and free giveaways for pooch and owner. The concept for dOGUMENTA was born during art critic Jessica Dawson's New York gallery walks with her rescue dog, Rocky. It was clear that Rocky saw art differently than humans, ignoring New York Times reviews and artist resumes and engaging directly with the work. Dawson realized that Rocky had something to teach human art lovers, and that he and his friends deserved an exhibition of art all their own. dOGUMENTA offers an unprecedented opportunity for the creative community to engage with a new breed of art lover and to consider its new points of view. dOGUMENTA's curatorial team is commissioning ten new artworks by established and emerging New York City artists. Artworks will align with the artists' established practice and also take into account canine experience and perception. 4-legged exhibition-goers will encounter work in a range of media that address formal, conceptual and experiential elements such as color, sound, scent and touch. A radical, pioneering exhibition, dOGUMENTA takes its name from Documenta, the major art survey that takes place every five years in Kassel, Germany. Considered the gold standard of exhibitions of contemporary art, Documenta, like dOGUMENTA, is energizing, exciting and unexpected. Please check back for details how to make a reservation or sign up for our mailing list here to receive more information about dOGUMENTA and other events. ABOUT THE dOGUMENTA CURATORIAL TEAM An NYC-based art critic, reporter and professor of art history, Jessica Dawson has written for national and international publications including the Wall Street Journal, Art in America and the Washington Post. She was a UCLA visiting professor from 2010-2014 and is currently at work on a memoir. A creative development consultant and partner at Another Limited Rebellion an Art & Innovation Studio, Mica Scalin is the author of "Creative Sprint: Six 30-Day Challenges to Jump Start Your Creativity" (2017).

Earl Klugh - Blue Note
Through August 13, 2017 - New York

"Earl Klugh will, by his own merits, become one of the most important voices on the guitar in the '70s. This album is clear evidence of what I'm talking about. Throughout it, you will become thrilled by both his complete mastery of his instrument and his beautiful, sensitive reflections. I'm especially excited by "Vonetta," which was written by Earl, because it truly exemplifies the kind of musician he is – one with a great sense of rhythm, harmony and feel… I know that you will get as much pleasure out of listening to this album as I have had working with Earl… Right on, Earl Klugh!" – George Benson, on Klugh's self-titled debut Earl Klugh (1976) Since GRAMMY®-winner Earl Klugh released his inaugural album in 1976, the Detroit-born master of the acoustic-classical guitar has become one of the most imitated icons of the instrument. He has released over 40 records, 24 of which have been on Billboard's top-10 list of jazz albums and 6 of which have made it to the No. 1 slot. Klugh's recordings have received 13 Grammy® nominations (including one for his latest release, HandPicked) – and his collaboration with pianist Bob James, One on One, walked away with the 1980 Grammy® Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album. In 2016, Earl celebrates the 40th Anniversary of his debut album Earl Klugh (1976, Blue Note Records) with a very special catalogue of shows, highlighting selections from over 250 original compositions and featuring Klugh's favorite standards, influences and collaborations from throughout his illustrious career. "I've been so fortunate to be able to create the music that I've wanted to create, and work with some of the greatest artists of our time," says Klugh. "It's hard to believe it's been 40 years since that first record!" "You know, this one really caught me by surprise," reflects Klugh. "When I look up, time has just flown by. But, I'm still here, and I'm still playing! I'm just so pleased and happy to have the career I've had so far. I've met so many wonderful people, in and out of the musical realm. I'm living a really wonderful life where you just have to pinch yourself sometimes, because there are so many things to be grateful for."

Arch Ballet - Sheen Center
Through August 13, 2017 - New York

Friday, Aug 11 8:00 PM Program A Saturday, Aug 12 2:00 PM Program C (Autism Friendly) Saturday, Aug 12 8:00 PM Program A Sunday, Aug 13 2:00 PM Program B Sunday, Aug 13 8:00 PM Program A PROGRAM A (90 minutes) REPLICA HUES OF MEMORY WORLD PREMIERE: NOT YET TITLED PROGRAM B (90 minutes) REPLICA WORLD PREMIERE: DRIFTLESS FRACTION WORLD PREMIERE: NOT YET TITLED PROGRAM C (Autism Friendly)(45 minutes) WORLD PREMIERE: NOT YET TITLED WORLD PREMIERE: DRIFTLESS FRACTION WORLD PREMIERE: NOT YET TITLED// 30 minutes Inspired by how can have a profound change on someone's behavior, this new work explores the impact music plays in society. The sound and messages we release through our art form directly impact our listeners in powerful ways. This is especially true of the youth and adolescents of our society, who are still extremely malleable to the world around them. The dancers movement set the tone and the music, as they create the sound of the piece in real time using Point Motion technology. Motion control sensors are placed in front of the stage and dancers move throughout the stage, while Point Motion technology creates the sound by tracing their movements. This dynamic work is sharp, electrifying, and brings an audience to many different emotions music can bring out. A fluid watercolor backdrop projected onto the backdrop flows throughout the piece as it seems as if the dancers are painting the music with their movement. WORLD PREMIERE: DRIFTLESS FRACTION// 30 minutes 'Driftless Fraction' is daring, electric, and a self analysis of our own emotions. Unique shapes and contrasting quick and slow movement take over the dancers' bodies and was inspired by experimenting with the different sides of one's personalities. How we interact with different people, our personality when we are alone, and how we control our reactions. This work is the result of Arch Contemporary Ballet's National Summer Intensive for Dance & Composition at New York City Center – this world premiere performance showcases the dancers of this workshop and a world premiere composition by composers of the program. HUES OF MEMORY//30 Minutes 'Hues of Memory' uses American Sign Language and is seamlessly integrated into the movement of two pas de deuxs, three-dimensionally revealing the poetic debut of world renowned photographer, Luis Pons. The bi-lingual interpretation of dance and ASL transports the audience to lush landscapes galvanized by romantic memory. Award winning composer Matthew AC Cohen sets the temperature of the work with a euphoric guitar and violin score performed by Arch Sound Ensemble, and displayed visually with synced lighting technology to the vibrations of the instruments. REPLICA// 35 minutes 'Replica' illustrates how we live in a culture where everything is replicated or reproduced and explores the value of an original object. The striking choreography is stirred with 3D printed costumes sponsored by Make Mode designed by Merve Oztemel. A pulsing original EDM score by Matthew AC Cohen and a 3D motion capture backdrop in real-time creates a 4D optical illusion on stage. Experimental and intricate body shapes are manufactured by sharp movements and eye-catching lines. ABOUT ARCH CONTEMPORARY BALLET Founded in 2013, New York City's Arch Contemporary Ballet was established with a bold spirit and innovative vision to create an artistic process that enhances the connection between ballet and music. All of ACB's works are choreographed without music. Commissioned composers then create an original music score for each repertoire program. In addition to her innovative way of joining movement and music, Artistic Director and choreographer, Sheena Annalise, challenges classicism with a cutting-edge approach to partnering, pairing women on pointe together as partners. ACB has performed across the country including the Paramount Theatre in Boston, Tempe Center for the Arts in Tempe, AZ, Marlene Boll Theatre in Detroit, New York City's Sheen Center, and more. Learn more at www.ArchBallet.com. SHEENA ANNALISE, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Artistic Director and choreographer, Sheena Annalise, at age 14, was honored to work with Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in "Equator Project", nurturing her choreographic talent. She quickly found a distinct voice by creating innovative body lines and exploring her fascination with the connection between movement and music. In her early work she began to play with creating her own tempos, accents, and pauses in her ballets without the limitations of existing music. Looking to accentuate her silent yet rhythmic choreography, she developed her artistic process of commissioning artists to create music specifically to each repertoire program. Annalise spent 2012 mentoring with the Mark Morris Dance Group, when she then founded Arch Contemporary Ballet the following year. Through ACB she has received residencies and space grants throughout NYC and has been named a "Prodigy" by The Women's Project. ARCH FOR AUTISM Arch for Autism is an initiative for families and friends with children or adults who are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other sensitivity issues to come together and enjoy the benefits of dance and music. Our goal is to make ballet and music accessible to all by including Autism Friendly performances during our performance season. Adjustments to the production include reduction of obscure lighting, shorter running time, and reduction of any sudden sounds. Plus, there will be areas in the lobby for quiet time or activities staffed with autism specialists for those who need to leave their seats during the performance. MATTHEW A.C. COHEN Matthew A.C.

LUIS PONS Luis Pons is a New York based world renowned dance photographer whose images are described as eternal, exquisite, and breathtakingly memorable. His photography envisions the pursuit of beauty, symmetry, color and contrasts and is noted for capturing fleeting moments in the human experience. The defining moments where all the energies in the human heart, body and spirit fuse together at 1/500th of a second, are captured eternally by his work. His motivation for photography is to remind himself of the potential in all of us to be beautiful, serene and at peace, and he shares this reminder to the world through his photographs. His work can be seen in publications across the world, such as Buzzfeed, HuffPost Arts & Culture Feature, Elle, Epoch Times, Capezio's world campaign, to name a few and he has captured the most distinguished ballet dancers from ballet companies throughout the world including New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, San Francisco Ballet, Arch Contemporary Ballet, and more.

Enigmatic Visions: Beauty in the Details - Agora Gallery
Through August 17, 2017 - NYC

Agora Gallery presents Enigmatic Visions, a new collective exhibition that is singular in its attention to the subtlety that can be found in contemporary art. While many equate progress with simply making the next piece bigger and louder, that is not the beginning and end of the state of today's art landscape. Though the eleven artists on display in Enigmatic Visions come from all corners of the globe, each brings out the magic in more modest concerns. This shared interest in the small scale can manifest in many different ways. It can be a study of physically empty places: flat, rocky plains or the lonely, mysterious seas. It can be zooming in on a single object for an updated take on the still life. This is a recurring motif in the exhibition, from a series of austere black-and-white photos of flower blossoms to intensely focused images of the body in motion. It can even be a small psychological space, such as the depiction of a single figure or an isolated group of people. Enigmatic Visions opens July 28 and runs through August 17, 2017 with an opening reception Thursday, August 3 from 6 - 8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: July 28 – August 17, 2017 Reception: Thursday, August 3, 2017, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York Event URL: http://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_7_28_2017.aspx Featured Artists: Annette Balsgaard | Antonio Biagiotti | Olena Bogatska | D. L. Brabander | James Chisholm | Anna Galea | Yuki Goodman | Larry Greenberg | Naini Kumar | Linco7n. | Jonathan Mann | Tammy Phillips | Elizabeth Sabine | Mark W.

Carlo Zinelli (1916–1974) - American Folk Art Museum: Branch Gallery
Through August 20, 2017 - Manhattan

This survey, the first museum exhibition on Carlo Zinelli (1916–1974) in the United States, coincides with the one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of this revered and distinctive Italian artist—a canonical art brut figure included in Jean Dubuffet's collection from the 1960s. The show highlights four distinct phases in Zinelli's oeuvre and new scholarship, through a selection of fifty-five paintings (many displayed double-sided), audio recordings of Zinelli, a film, and images by Life magazine photographer John Phillips. The exhibition brings together artworks from the American Folk Art Museum and other private and public collections from the United States and abroad, notably the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, the Fondazione Culturale Carlo Zinelli, Verona, and the collection of Audrey B. Heckler, New York. Curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut. An exhibition brochure is available. The museum would like to thank the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, the Fondazione Culturale Carlo Zinelli and Comune Di San Giovanni Lupatoto, Verona, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Gordon W. Bailey, Edward V. Blanchard Jr., Andrea Cairone and the John and Annamaria Phillips Foundation, Cavin-Morris Gallery, Audrey B. Heckler, Robert A. Roth, Amr Shaker, and the relatives of Carlo Zinelli for their generous loans to and support of the exhibition.

Eugen Gabritschevsky: Theater of the Imperceptible - American Folk Art Museum: Branch Gallery
Through August 20, 2017 - Manhattan

Throughout his life, Eugen Gabritschevsky displayed a precocious passion for the natural sciences, particularly entomology. Born in Russia, he completed advanced degrees in biology and genetics in Moscow, before pursuing postdoctoral studies in 1925 at Columbia University. Soon after he joined the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1927, his successful career was cut short by the deterioration of his mental health, leading to his admission into a psychiatric hospital in Germany in 1931. There, and for the rest of his life, Gabritschevsky elaborated a prolific, refined, and heterogeneous body of work—gouaches, drawings, and watercolors on paper—imbued with his early scientific interests, observation skills, and a propensity for experimentation. This first in-depth exhibition of Gabritschevsky's relatively unknown artistic contribution is composed of more than eighty artworks, a film, publications, and archival documents. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, and La maison rouge, Paris. The New York presentation is curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut.

Divine Encounter: Rembrandt's Abraham and the Angels - Frick Collection
Through August 20, 2017 - New York

In the summer of 2017, The Frick Collection will present Rembrandt's Abraham Entertaining the Angels of 1646. This captivating, small, and luminous oil painting on panel, generously lent from a private collection, has been exhibited only a handful of times in its history and was last on public view ten years ago. This exceptional loan has inspired a tightly focused exhibition in which the painting will appear alongside other depictions by Rembrandt of the Old Testament figure Abraham — a spectacular selection of prints and drawings from American and international collections. Divine Encounter: Rembrandt's Abraham and the Angels will offer a rare opportunity to examine the artist's continuing engagement with the Abraham narrative and thus with the central themes of his work as a history painter: divine intervention, revelation, and prophecy. The exhibition is organized by Joanna Sheers Seidenstein, Anne L. Poulet Curatorial Fellow, and will be accompanied by a scholarly publication and a variety of educational programs. Spanning the late 1630s to the late 1650s, the works in the exhibition trace a shift in Rembrandt's approach to biblical subject matter. In them, the artist took a progressively deeper interest in the psychological content of the Abraham story, specifically the emotional experience of a father confronting the most magnificent of blessings and the most heartbreaking of losses. At the same time, Rembrandt also began to move away from the physicality and instantaneity of his earlier narrative work in favor of imagery characterized instead by an overwhelming sense of stillness and calm. These are the defining qualities of his 1646 Abraham Entertaining the Angels, in which the momentous nature of the event depicted is conveyed solely through light and a single, gently raised hand. This pivotal work in the artist's career depicts an episode from chapter 18 of Genesis in which Abraham and his wife, Sarah, are visited by three travelers. These strangers reveal their divine status when one of them announces, to the aged woman's disbelief, that she will give birth to a son in a year's time. This is the third instance in the Bible in which God appears — the text is explicit — to Abraham. What the patriarch actually saw and how to represent it were, however, matters of interpretation. In the 1646 painting and in a later etching of 1656 depicting the same episode, Rembrandt directly addressed this question, exploring in two very different ways the nature of divine presence and human perception thereof. Rembrandt continued to examine these themes in his other depictions of Abraham from the 1650s, as, for example, in his 1655 etching of the Sacrifice of Isaac — a deeply moving scene of physical encounter in which Abraham hears and feels but does not see the angel who has come to save his son. Other highlights of the show include two superb drawings from Dresden in which dazzlingly rapid strokes of the pen capture a sense of sudden manifestation and demonstrate the artist's continued exploration of the experience of revelation. This exhibition is the first to bring all of this material together and will therefore provide a fresh examination of Rembrandt's evolving approach to the representation of the divine across different media and of his engagement with artistic, theological, and philosophical questions about sight and perception.

Our generative format will allow you to develop your voices, write voluminously, journal (yes, you may write home!), and scare yourself. This class will be playful, harness the fun of summer sun and Sundays, but it will also be hard work! We will study non-traditional forms, collaboration, ekphrastic writing, elegy, using the self, hybrid, anti-poems, found, nature, formal, conceptual, dreams, the internet, and more. Class time will be spent on active writing, workshops, experiencing, listening to and responding to visitors, a little editing, and you will also practice performing your new work! We will be visited by two amazing working poets (TBA), read poetry, words, and letters from the past and present. And since its SUMMER, we will take a writing excursion to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as to the sidewalks, parks, and even the New York City Poetry Festival for inspiration and writing. We will feel the summer heat, eat pizza, eat ice cream and write hungrily, constantly, responsibly, and recklessly. The summer will end with a capstone project: a chapbook manuscript! If youre doing it right, youll cry tears of joy and tears of wild emotion: either way changed and renewed! Every week we will read cutting-edge, crazy, and curious poetry, words, and letters from the past, present, and the future like John Keats, Vincent Van Gogh, Gaston Bachelard, John Wieners, Mary Ruefle, Sommer Browning, Chris Kraus, Anne Boyer, and more.

Fade in 2: Ext. Modernist Home – Night - Museum of Contemporary Art
Through August 21, 2017 - Novi Beograd

Curated by Swiss Institute with Julie Boukobza, with Ana Anakijev and Miloš Zec as assistant curators. Produced by Balkan Projects. Artists: Danai Anesiadou, Darja Bajagi?, Dora Budor, Ulises Carrión, Heman Chong, Brice Dellsperger, Aleksandra Domanovi?, Mathis Gasser, Daiga Grantina, Siniša Ili?, Alex Israel, Bertrand Lavier, William Leavitt, Christian Marclay, Rodrigo Matheus, Benjamin Ramírez Pérez, Carissa Rodriguez, Bojan Šar?evi?, Amie Siegel, Tobias Spichtig, Raša Todosijevi? Inhabiting the rooms of the Museum of Contemporary Art - Belgrade's Milica Zori? and Rodoljub ?olakovi? Gallery-Legacy, FADE IN 2: EXT. MODERNIST HOME – NIGHT investigates the role that art plays in narrative film and television. The exhibition acts as a sequel to FADE IN: INT. ART GALLERY – DAY, which was on view at Swiss Institute / Contemporary Art, New York in March 2016. This new iteration allows participating artists to further reclaim the manner in which art is represented on screen, whether as props, set dressings, plot devices, or character cues. The nature of the exhibition is such that sculptures, paintings, performances and installations transition from prop to image to art object, staging an enquiry into whether these fictional depictions in mass media ultimately have greater influence in defining a collective understanding of art than art itself does. Certain preoccupations with artworks are established early on in cinematic history: the preciousness of art objects anchors their roles as plot drivers, and anxieties intensify regarding the vitality of artworks and their perceived abilities to wield power over viewers or to capture spirits. Across genres, the character of the artist is habitually portrayed as a volatile, mercurial figure with license to subvert societal norms, who is thereby ridiculed, feared and revered. From many such narratives, FADE IN 2 draws out the art objects, granting them the status only previously achieved on-screen, whilst pointing to moments in which one form of media wrangles with the power of another.

Love in Venice - New York Public Library: Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
Through August 26, 2017 - Manhattan

This exhibition is part of Carnegie Hall's citywide festival La Serenissima: Music and Arts from the Venetian Republic. A tolerant and secular state, the Venetian Republic originated in the lagoon communities around Venice and existed for half a millennium, from 1297 until 1797. Dominated by a merchant capitalist elite who did business through sea trade, the Republic of Venice enjoyed an autonomy and freedom that was not typical of the rest of Italy, and which for centuries made it a destination for love and pleasure. Titled "Love in Venice," the exhibition at The New York Public Library will examine the literary, artistic, musical and cultural aspects of Venice's seductiveness, including its beautiful courtesans, lavish festivals, lively carnivals and libertine counter-culture. On view will be works as diverse as the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, one of the most iconic works produced in Venice to explore ideas of desire, to flap books showing the undergarments of Venetian prostitutes, etchings by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, letters from Lord Byron's paramours and examples of wedding poetry celebrating the unions of leading European families.

ILLUSION investigates how perception defines the way we see, feel, think and understand the world. Visitors will question their reality and their perceptions of the world as their senses become distorted and logical thinking mystified. Some of the experiences include: The Invisible Eye allows you to see an eyeball construct itself from thin air Gaze into a mirror and morph into your inner animal at All the Universe is Full of the Lives of Perfect Creatures. Delicate Boundaries creates a space that allows the worlds inside our digital devices to move into the physical realm as bugs crawl off the screen and onto your body, Counter, using a trompe l’oeil effect, tries to convince us that a two dimensional object is actually three dimensional.

Noah's Beasts: Sculpted Animals from Ancient Mesopotamia - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

Animal representations in the sculptural arts of the ancient Near East are remarkable for their evocative expressive power. Beautiful and durable, these artworks have withstood the millennia and preserve the record of humanity, its concerns and beliefs, for all subsequent generations. Often combining great attention to naturalistic detail with elements of stylization, the ancient sculptures—made in both stone and metal, some even with silver and inlays of shell and lapis lazuli—have a strong visual appeal; yet they also lend insight on the sacred, profane, sacrificial, and practical realities of the early Sumerian agrarian society, which is popularly known as the cradle of Western civilization. This exhibition presents Mesopotamian sculptural works from ca. 3300–2250 B.C., bringing together for the first time pieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Yale University Babylonian Collection, the Kimbell Art Museum, and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Cylinder seals relating to each of the sculptures are also presented, including a remarkable seal from the Morgan's collection showing animals acting as human. Through a focused consideration of these Near Eastern artworks, the rare objects emphasize the importance of the elements of the natural world that the ancients experienced and, by extension, the interdependence of the natural and the spiritual world. Inspiring the exhibition, the Morgan's famous 1646 B.C. clay tablet will also be on view; it is inscribed with the "The Deluge Story"—an early version of the familiar tale of Noah.

GroßEr Lauscher - Knockdown Center
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

großer Lauscher ("big Eavesdropper" in German) is a spatial sound installation created by interdisciplinary artist Alyssa Miserendino. The piece was recorded in the main radar dome at the Field Station Berlin, a listening station built during the Cold War by the US National Security Agency (NSA). Exhibited in the darkness, the piece is comprised of five narrators from five different continents reciting the story of Echo from Ovid's Metamorphoses, while the protracted echos created by the architecture allow visitors to visualize the space of the Field Station. This project is made possible by an Ella Fountain Pratt Emerging Artists Grant from the Durham Arts Council with support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources + a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant. This project is sponsored by Arup and Genelec. About ArupIn order to curate an experience driven solely by sound, the unique acoustic signature of the main radar dome at the Field Station Berlin called for a playful interpretation and immersive implementation through sound design. The performance was recorded in a multichannel audio format in Berlin by Alyssa Miserendino with technical support from Arup. In close collaboration with the artist the audio was then processed, spatialized, and rendered into the final piece by Arup acoustic designers using the proprietary 3D audio technology of the Arup SoundLab®. Arup concurrently designed a spatial sound system to render the piece and provided acoustic consulting expertise for the exhibition space, optimizing the patron aural experience,About Genelec Genelec is a sponsor of the project großer Lauscher, providing studio monitors and mounting accessories for the installation at Knockdown Center. Genelec's design philosophy is based on sustainable development and environmental values, using industrial design to serve their products' acoustical performance. Genelec aims to deliver performance-driven, tonally neutral speaker and subwoofer systems for audio professionals and enthusiasts. Alyssa Miserendino is an interdisciplinary artist & educator, working in photography, sculpture, video, sound, performance & installation. She creates artwork driven by her interest in paradox & connection. Since her undergraduate fellowship award, from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, her work has since been supported by organizations such as the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation and ARUP. She completed her Masters in Fine Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and is currently teaching at The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.

J.A.W. Cooper - Impermanence - Spoke Art Gallery
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

Impermanence a solo show by J.A.W. Cooper Opening Reception: August 5th, 6 - 9pm On view: August 5th - 27th, 2017 SPOKE NYC is pleased to announce “Impermanence” a solo exhibition by acclaimed illustrator, J.A.W. Cooper. Based in Los Angeles, and working as a freelance illustrator, art director and fine artist, Cooper draws inspiration from nature, curio cabinets and fashion photography. “Impermanence” will be Cooper’s inaugural solo exhibition at SPOKE, in which she will explore themes of life, death and the urgency of ephemerality through her distinct surreal lens. For “Impermanence,” Cooper has created a series of paintings and drawings on paper. The artists graphite drawings highlight her signature flowing lines, while paintings feature Cooper’s technique of gradually layering washes of acrylic over India ink. The scenes and figures depicted appear to oscillate between the paradoxical elements of strength and vulnerability, transforming them into metaphors for life and death. Cooper’s narrative based compositions explore the relationships between animals, nature and humans. These explorations create allegorical “folktales” which give the viewer a glimpse into the artists imagined “alternate reality”. Regarding her new body of work, the artist explains that it explores “the significance imparted by the urgency of ephemerality and of the rhythms of seasons and of life and death. Without the urgency we feel from the conscious knowledge of our own impermanence, our experience of life would be insignificant.” Please join us Saturday, August 5th from 6 - 9pm for the opening reception of “Impermanence”. Complimentary beverages will be served and the artist will be in attendance. As an added bonus, the first 50 attendees of the exhibition will receive a free mini print! For more information, or additional images, please email us at nyc@spoke-art.com.

Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground. The organization's founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company, whose vision of universal access to cultural identity, equity and quality arts education drives its programs. Ballet Hispánico has become a role model in and for the Latino community and is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education.    The Ballet Hispánico School of Dance offers an eclectic curriculum based on classical ballet, Spanish, and contemporary dance forms. Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance, the School empowers students by offering a holistic approach to movement discovery, including pre-professional training and classes for the novice dancer. The School also offers adult classes and workshops that provide cultural enrichment and the joy of dance to everyone.   For more information, visit www.ballethispanico.org.   EDUARDO VILARO joined Ballet Hispánico as Artistic Director in August 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. In 2015, Mr. Vilaro took on the additional role of Chief Executive Officer of Ballet Hispánico. He has been part of the Ballet Hispánico family since 1985 as a principal dancer and educator, after which he began a ten-year record of achievement as Founder and Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago. Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico's legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America's changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education.    Mr. Vilaro's own choreography is devoted to capturing the spiritual, sensual and historical essence of the Latino cultures. He created over 20 ballets for Luna Negra and has received commissions from the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Grant Park Festival, the Lexington Ballet and the Chicago Symphony. In 2001, he was a recipient of a Ruth Page Award for choreography, and in 2003, he was honored for his choreographic work at Panama's II International Festival of Ballet. In 2016, he was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame.    MICHELLE MANZANALES, Director of the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance, is a choreographer and dance educator originally from Houston, TX, Ms. Manzanales has created works for numerous professional companies, universities, and schools throughout the country. Con Brazos Abiertos, her critically acclaimed first work for Ballet Hispánico, had its world premiere at the Joyce Theater in April, 2017. With humility, nostalgia and humor, Con Brazos Abiertos explored the iconic Mexican symbols that Ms. Manzanales was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas. Ms. Manzanales's previous works include Sugar in the Raw (Azucar Cruda) for Luna Negra Dance Theater, which was applauded by the Chicago Sun-Times as "a staggering, beautiful, accomplished new work" in 2007. In 2010, her homage to Frida Kahlo, Paloma Querida, was hailed as a "visual masterpiece" by Lucia Mauro of the Chicago Tribune.   She began working with Ballet Hispánico Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro in 2003 as a dancer for his then-company Luna Negra Dance Theater of Chicago, where she later became Rehearsal Director in 2006 and eventually served as Interim Artistic Director 2009-2010. Prior to her appointment to School Director, Ms. Manzanales served as the Rehearsal Director and Artistic Associate of the main company of Ballet Hispánico for seven years.

Through August 31, 2017 - New York

Registration is now open for New York Theatre Ballet's BALLET SCHOOL NY 2017-18 School Year Ballet School NY, the official training school of New York Theatre Ballet, is pleased to announce its 2017-18 classes for students ages 4 and up, beginning September 18, 2017 at NYTB's home studio, located at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery, 131 E. 10th Street, 2nd Floor, New York City. Classes will be offered Monday through Saturday. 5% discount available with payment by August 31, 2017. An annual recital will conclude the training program. For registration and more information, visit www.nytb.org/ballet-school-ny.   Qualified children perform with New York Theatre Ballet throughout the year in special roles created for them. The studio trains in the Cecchetti method, a technique founded by Italian ballet master Enrico Cecchetti. The school teaches dance as a total art form, developing strong technical skill and discipline. Following the Cecchetti syllabus, classes emphasize music, theatricality, gesture and style. Well-trained Cecchetti dancers have purity of line and simplicity of style, which enables them to take their place in dance companies throughout the world. For the advanced students, a once-a-week workshop is part of the curriculum featuring classes in Graham Technique taught by Miki Orihara.   "There is always a teaching assistant in every class and we teach to the individual child," said Diana Byer, Founder and Artistic Director of NYTB. "Every child gets personal attention in each class."   The Company's repertory season will include performances at Danspace Project, 92Y and Florence Gould Hall.  The Once Upon A Ballet series for family audiences will continue at Florence Gould Hall and the Schimmel Center Performing Arts Center at Pace University.   ABOUT BALLET SCHOOL NY Ballet School NY (BSNY) was founded by artistic director Diana Byer in 1978 as the official training school of New York Theatre Ballet. The school teaches dance as a total art form, developing strong technical skill and discipline.  Following the Cecchetti syllabus, classes emphasize music, theatricality, gesture and style. For the advanced and pre-professional level student classes in modern, theater dance, pointe, variations and repertory round out the training curriculum. Ballet School NY provides teaching assistants in every class. Small class size guarantees highly individualized instruction. For qualified students, the school's unique relationship with the Company provides performing experience throughout the year in ballets featuring roles for children.   ABOUT NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET New York Theatre Ballet has reinvented itself as New York's downtown ballet company. With its ever-expanding repertory, NYTB's cutting edge programming brings fresh insight to classic revivals paired with the modern sensibilities of both established and up and coming choreographers. The diversity in repertory explores the past while boldly taking risks on the future. Performing in more intimate spaces, often to live music, brings the audience and the dance together for a personal experience. When reflecting on NYTB's first season at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery in 2015, The New York Times said, "The members of Theater Ballet are not only refined dancers but also unaffected actors... they draw you in. The intimacy of the space only helped; the amplitude and honesty of their dancing has found its match in St. Mark's Church."

Times Square Arts Presents MSHR’s Convolution Weave~Lattice Domain - Times Square
Through August 31, 2017 - New York

– In partnership with Upfor Gallery, Times Square Arts presents artist MSHR’s Convolution Weave~Lattice Domain on Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight every night in August. This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. MSHR's work is also currently featured in the Past Skin exhibition at MoMA PS1 (open through September 10, 2017) and The World is Sound at the Rubin Museum (open through January 18, 2018), and will appear in the Sonic Arcade exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design (September 14, 2017 - February 25, 2018). Through spinning virtual sculptures and a specific visual language, MSHR create their own highly aestheticized, psychedelic version of the type of sensory overload found on the electronic screens of Times Square. The elaborate sculptures, which shift colors as they reflect digital light, seem one moment to almost be physical objects and the next to be obviously virtual, flowing from real to imaginary. In setting up algorithmic procedures and cued extrusions, then responding intuitively when the procedures lead to a turning point, MSHR design forms that resonate with an invisible mental architecture – shapes that feel right, even if they may not be possible in reality, much as the reality of New York City itself may or may not overlap with mental perceptions of the city.

Collecting the Arts of Mexico - The Met
Through September 04, 2017 - New York

In 1911, Emily Johnston de Forest gave her collection of pottery from Mexico to The Met. Calling it "Mexican maiolica," she highlighted its importance as a North American artistic achievement. De Forest was the daughter of the Museum's first president and, with her husband, Robert, a founder of The American Wing. The De Forests envisioned building a collection of Mexican art, and, even though their ambitions were frustrated at the time, the foundational gift of more than one hundred pieces of pottery anchors The Met's holdings. Today, more than a century later, their vision resonates as the Museum commits to collecting and exhibiting not just the arts of Mexico, but all of Latin America. This exhibition highlights the early contributions of the De Forests and others, and presents recent additions to the collection for the first time.

Through September 04, 2017 - Jersey City

It’s A New Season of Excavation at Liberty Science Center as Jack Horner’s Dino Dig, Inspired by the Legendary Paleontologist, Opens July 1 For dinosaur hunters around the world, the start of summer means it’s time to get out of the lab and back into the field to make new discoveries. Liberty Science Center guests can begin their own new season of fieldwork as they excavate full-sized Cretaceous-era fossil replicas from 35 tons of sand at Jack Horner’s Dino Dig starting July 1. For the second year in a row, Liberty Science Center gives guests the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of legendary paleontologist Jack Horner, the inspiration of the Michael Crichton novel and Steven Spielberg film, “Jurassic Park.” Mr. Horner is lending his name to the activity to help inspire the next generation of scientists. “Every kid has imagined how cool it would be to dig for dinosaur bones,” said Paul Hoffman, LSC President and CEO. “Liberty Science Center is all about bringing science to life in fun, interactive, and compelling ways. With Jack Horner’s expertise to guide us, our ‘Dino Dig’ guests will see first-hand how exciting paleontology can be.” The exhibit has been updated since Mr. Horner’s visit to LSC last year, reflecting more of his excavation experiences and focus on specific discoveries. Many of the over 50 bones, including a 72-inch long Triceratops skull, will protrude from the ground as if “weathering out,” and new species have been added. The full assemblage now includes T. rex, Pachycephalosaurus, Triceratops, and Mr. Horner’s discovery, Maiasaura, which cared for nests of their young in huge gatherings as their birddescendants, including emperor penguins, still do today. Weather permitting, Jack Horner’s Dino Dig is open daily July 1 through September 4, 2017 and is included with general admission. Tickets to Liberty Science Center start at $17.75 and are available online at LSC.org. Note: Kids wearing dinosaur-themed clothing can save $5 on child admission tickets while the exhibit is here!

Houston artist Adela Andea is known for transforming indoor spaces. Her installations create sensory experiences for her viewers. In Arts Brookfield's latest exhibition, It's Unreal!, Andea uses LED lights and various recycled plastic materials to provoke a dialogue about the interaction between people and new technologies. Of her "conversations in light," Andea says, "My work relies on human-made materials to create artificial environments that suggest 'beauty' assigned to the natural landscapes or environments. My installations insist on the visual transformation of inorganic into organic matter, and the blending of the organic with geometric." Curated by Sally Reynolds. ABOUT ADELA ANDEA Born in Romania in 1976, Adela Andea came to the United States in 1999. Her work was included in several exhibitions in California, Pennsylvania, New York and Texas. She graduated Valedictorian and Summa Cum Laude from the Painting program at the University of Houston.

The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals - Frick Collection
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

The Frick Collection recently announced the largest acquisition in its history — a promised gift of approximately 450 portrait medals from the incomparable collection of Stephen K. and Janie Woo Scher. Representing the development of the art of the portrait medal from its inception in fifteenth-century Italy to the nineteenth century, the Scher collection is arguably the world's most comprehensive and significant collection of portrait medals. Comments Director Ian Wardropper, "Henry Clay Frick had an abiding interest in portraiture as expressed in the paintings, sculpture, enamels, and works on paper he acquired. The Scher medals will coalesce beautifully with these holdings, being understood in our galleries within the broader contexts of European art and culture. At the same time, the intimate scale of the institution will offer a superb platform for the medals to be appreciated as an independent art form, one long overdue for fresh attention and public appreciation." To celebrate the promised gift, The Frick Collection will mount an exhibition this spring entitled The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals. The exhibition will explore the flourishing of the medallic arts in major European centers of artistic production and will feature superlative examples by masters of the art such as Pisanello (Italy), Dupré (France), and Reinhart (Germany). Taking and fresh approach to the study of medals, which have often been viewed in the past as specialist objects closer to the field of numismatics, this exhibition will examine medals within the larger context of art, honoring them as a triumph of sculptural production on a small scale. Visitors to the show will encounter a number of renowned sculptors who were also masters of the medal. The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals is organized by Aimee Ng, Associate Curator at the Frick, and Stephen K. Scher, an esteemed art historian as well as a collector. Accompanying the exhibition is a richly illustrated exhibition catalogue including an essay by Aimee Ng. (In the spring of 2018, a catalogue of the entire Scher Collection will be published, featuring essays by leading medals scholars and illustrated entries about each of the almost one thousand medals in the collection.)

This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) occupies a lofty place in American cultural history. He spent two years in a cabin by Walden Pond and a single night in jail, and out of those experiences grew two of this country's most influential works: his book Walden and the essay known as "Civil Disobedience." But his lifelong journal—more voluminous by far than his published writings—reveals a fuller, more intimate picture of a man of wide-ranging interests and a profound commitment to living responsibly and passionately. This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal brings together nearly one hundred items in the most comprehensive exhibition ever devoted to the author. Marking the 200th anniversary of Thoreau's birth and organized in partnership with the Concord Museum in his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts, the show centers on the journal he kept throughout his life and its importance in understanding the essential Thoreau. More than twenty of Thoreau's journal notebooks are shown along with letters and manuscripts, books from his library, pressed plants from his herbarium, and important personal artifacts. Also featured are the only two photographs for which he sat during his lifetime, shown together for the first time.

Henry James and American Painting - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

he analogy between the art of the painter and the art of the novelist is, so far as I am able to see, complete. Their inspiration is the same, their process (allowing for the different quality of the vehicle), is the same, their success is the same. They may learn from each other, they may explain and sustain each other. Their cause is the same, and the honour of one is the honour of another. Henry James and American Painting is the first exhibition to explore the author's deep and lasting interest in the visual arts and their profound impact on the literature he produced. Offering a fresh perspective on the master novelist, the show reveals the importance of James's friendships with American artists such as John La Farge (1835–1910), John Singer Sargent (1856–1925), and James McNeill Whistler (1834–1903). While the author decided early on that the pictorial arts were not to be the arena in which he would work, the painterly quality of his writing has enthralled readers for over a century. Co-curated by acclaimed novelist Colm Tóibín and Declan Kiely, head of the Morgan's Department of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, the exhibition includes a rich and eclectic selection of more than fifty paintings, drawings, watercolors, sculptures, photographs, manuscripts, letters, and printed books from two dozen museums and private collections in the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland. Together they weave an evocative story of fascinating artistic intersections.

Radical Bodies - The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
Through September 16, 2017 - New York

Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 - 1972 n August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin, the inventor of task-based improvisation, taught an experimental workshop on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful dance constructions premiered in Yoko Ono's loft in New York and Rainer co-founded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies examines the artistic relationships between Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, shedding light on each artist's contribution to history. Dance was a conceptual engine of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized, communitarian vision for performance that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day. Curated by Ninotchka D. Bennahum (Professor of Theater and Dance, UCSB), Wendy Perron (Former Editor in Chief, Dance Magazine; Adjunct Professor, NYU Tisch School of the Arts) and Bruce Robertson (Professor of Art History and Director of the AD&A Museum, UCSB), Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 – 1972 consists of photographs, rare films, and original choreographic scores and drawings by Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, as well as work inspired by them by such artists as Imogen Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, and George Brecht. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by University of California Press, with essays by Bennahum, Perron, and Robertson, as well as essays by John Rockwell (former dance critic of The New York Times), and Halprin collaborator Morton Subotnick. Also in the catalogue are never-before-published letters by Forti to Halprin in the early '60s. Radical Bodies is organized by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara with generous support provided by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc., the Ceil and Michael Pulitzer Foundation, the Metabolic Studio, and Jody and John Arnhold, Victoria Hendler, and Eva and Yoel Haller. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts gratefully acknowledges the leadership support of Dorothy and Lewis. B. Cullman. Additional support for exhibitions has been provided by Judy R. and Alfred A. Rosenberg and the Miriam and Harold Steinberg Foundation.

South Street Seaport Museum announces Free Fridays Program - South Street Seaport Museum
Through September 22, 2017 - New York

South Street Seaport Museum announces Free Fridays Program alternate Fridays through September 22, 2017 The South Street Seaport Museum announces its summer program of Free Fridays! Every other Friday between 3-7pm, the Seaport Museum offers free admission to its exhibitions, historic ship tours, educational and programmatic activities, artisan demonstrations at Bowne Printers, and more!    The Free Fridays program will feature special activities on selected topics; the upcoming Free Fridays program on June 16 will feature the Seaport Museum's flagship Wavertree and will offer visitors a special opportunity to step aboard, grab a halyard and raise one of the ship's sails!   The 2017 Free Fridays program is presented by The Howard Hughes Corporation andis supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.    On June 30th, the Free Fridays program will feature a special curatorial and collections walkthrough of the new exhibition, Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914, one of the first exhibitions to examine, side-by-side, the dichotomy between First-Class and Third-Class passengers aboard ocean liners in the early 20th century.    Ships like Titanic, Olympic, Lusitania, Mauretania, Aquitania, and Imperatordominated transatlantic travel. On each voyage, they transported thousands of people, First-Class passengers sailed across the Atlantic in the lap of luxury while Third-Class passengers made the voyage in the stuffy lower decks.   From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this same period, America's wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First Class, spending over $11.5 billion (2017) on luxury vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same ships, their journeys were worlds apart.   This exhibition will feature both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum's permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and First Class passengers. The exhibition will highlight a few ship models of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in immigration, including a model of the Museum's lightship Ambrose (LV-87).    Ambrose, a floating lighthouse, stood watch at the front door to New York Harbor during the greatest period of immigration in US history. Her official duty was to mark the entrance to the Ambrose Channel, a deep channel dredged between 1900 and 1907 to allow larger ocean liners, the largest of which had doubled in size in those same years, safe access into the harbor. But Ambrosehad another vital role; her light was the first thing an immigrant would see as they entered New York Harbor, long before the buildings and piers on the waterfront, long before the Manhattan skyline, and long before the lighted torch of the Statue of Liberty.    Evoking the spirit of First-Class grandeur, a piece of wood paneling that once adorned the interior of the Smoking Room of the RMS Mauretania will be recreated by master woodcarver Deborah Mills throughout the run of the show. This work-in-progress will be on view in the exhibition space during regular hours Thursday through Sunday. Each Wednesday visitors can visit the Museum's Maritime Craft Center at 209 Water Street and watch as the artist brings the piece closer to the original.   The exhibition will familiarize viewers with passenger life aboard ocean liners, the defining differences between travel for wealthy Americans in First Class and future Americans immigrating to the United States in Third Class, and the continuing importance that immigration plays in American history.   The exhibition is curated by William Roka, Historian, and Michelle Kennedy, Collections and Curatorial Assistant, at the Seaport Museum. Exhibition design and art direction by Rob Wilson and Christine Picone of Bowne Printers, the Museum's historic letterpress shop.    This exhibition is made possible by generous support from Theodore W. Scull and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.   ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America's National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where New York Begins."

A Supple Perimeter - Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
Through September 24, 2017 -

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Arts Center at Governors Island hosts LMCC's summer exhibition, A Supple Perimeter, by artist, educator, and writer Kameelah Janan Rasheed. Free and open to the public, the exhibition will change over time, inviting audiences to both experience the evolution of the space in person and encounter a new installation upon multiple visits. A Supple Perimeter, Artist Statement Rasheed's research-based practice, which spans installation, photography, performance, publications, and printmaking, engages with figurative and literal language to interrogate how we read, write, consume, and distribute histories of Black folks. Invested in the wide permutations of Blackness, A Supple Perimeter explores the capacities of blackness and the quiet, blackness and the reticent, blackness and the private: an expansive blackness that allows for a Black subject with interiority and a strategic engagement with public(s). In A Supple Perimeter, Rasheed begins with her research into ecology, entropy and black traditions of experimental writing to construct an immersive ecosystem of existing and self-authored texts, unfinished videos, projections, objects and excerpts of sound experiments that comment on selective legibility; the tension between public and private selves; black traditions of covert literacies and language systems; technologies of counter-surveillance; as well as systems of self-publishing. Delicately moving between opacity and transparency, interiority and public pronouncements, in A Supple Perimeter bodies of work are burrowed into the walls, others erupt from the corners, while some only become visible through specific physical engagements. Faced with the assertion of an ahistorical and stable Black subject who is both publicly available and fungible, Rasheed invites the audience to engage with an unstable installation space that mirrors of the agility of Blackness, her blackness, in an installation that will shift in form and content over the course of the installation period using a set of rules derived from constrained writing techniques and performance scores. Each iterative change to the installation will be accompanied by a piece of writing and a map of changes published at www.kameelahr.com/a-supple-perimeter, while weekly images will be posted to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using the hashtags #asuppleperimeter, #kameelahjananrasheed, #lmcc and #r2r. Organized by Melissa Levin A Supple Perimeter is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the summer, May 27–Sep 24 from 12pm-5pm. A Supple Perimeter is open every day during River To River 2017, Jun 15 – Jun 25 from 12pm-5pm. Reception: Saturday, June 24, 3-5pm

If/Then & Questions - Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
Through September 24, 2017 - New York

In addition to a solo exhibition in the gallery at The Arts Center at Governors Island, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council hosts a public art installation by artist, educator, and writer Kameelah Janan Rasheed. Rasheed's If/Then (2014-present) and Questions (2017) will be installed on the façade of the historic Fort Jay Theater on Governors Island using the existing poster cases and original marquee board. Taking advantage of a space that would have typically advertised live entertainment and movies from 1939-1996 to U.S. military and their families living and working on Governors Island, Rasheed's new project Questions and the ongoing If/Then both aim to create a different kind of moment of pause for a viewer: to consider an existential question or to process the association of poignant, two-word alliterative phrases, all composed by the artist. On a biweekly cycle, the posters in the cases and the text in the marquee board will be changed by Rasheed. The marquee board will feature a new question concerning a contemporary context. The posters will feature alliterative word pairings, each of which contain a multiplicity of meanings. Each change will be documented via Instagram. The final images of the marquee board will be compiled into a small zine made available at the close of the show.The installation's first question is, "Are we there yet?" Organized by Melissa Levin

The World Is Sound - The Rubin Museum
Through September 30, 2017 - Chelsea

A brand new exhibit where visitors will explore how sound and our sense of hearing shape our daily lives, our traditions, our history, and all of existence. Featuring work by more than 20 artists, The World Is Sound juxtaposes new site-specific commissions and works by prominent contemporary sound artists with historical objects from the museum's collection of Tibetan Buddhist art to encourage reflection on how we listen and to challenge entrenched ways of thinking. The Museum space itself will become an instrument of transformation. The centerpiece of the exhibition is Le Corps Sonore (Sound Body), an immersive, site-specific installation composed for the Rubin Museum's iconic spiral staircase by the pioneering electronic sound artists Éliane Radigue, Laetitia Sonami, and Bob Bielecki. Ambient drone sounds inspired by Buddhist philosophy are "tuned" to the building, and will ascend and descend as visitors wind their way up the staircase. The subtlety and ephemerality of the sounds prepare the listener for understanding a core tenet of Buddhist philosophy, where music is a metaphor for change and impermanence. As with the entire exhibition, Le Corps Sonore invites visitors to slow down and consider their bodily engagement with sound, space, and their individual perceptions. The exhibition also includes Tibetan Buddhist ritual music from several monasteries in Nepal and India, the voices of Rubin visitors recorded in the OM Lab, and software and acoustic design by Terence Caulkins of Arup. Daniel Neumann is Lead Acoustic Designer for the exhibition.

Through October 01, 2017 - New York

Artists and designers often look to the past to find inspiration for their own work. This exhibition—drawn entirely from The Met collection—compares foliate patterns and roundels that are found on textiles from the Late Roman, Byzantine, and Early Islamic periods in Egypt to similar motifs in postcards by the Wiener Werkstätte and on garments designed by Mariano Fortuny (1871–1949). Created in Egypt between about 200 and 600, the textiles on view include a child's dress; fragments from a sleeve, tunic, and blanket or cover; and other fragments whose original use is not known. Variations of the scrolling vines and stylized motifs that adorn these textiles can be seen on works created nearly 1500 years later. The renowned Spanish-born designer Mariano Fortuny was active in Venice, where he founded a textile workshop and commercial silk printing factory. His exquisite designs fuse the ancient and the modern, the local and the exotic. Three different Fortuny-designed silk coats from the first three decades of the 20th century are shown over the course of the exhibition. In cut and ornament, these items harken back to Late Antique historical sources. Founded in 1903 in reaction both to the neoclassical academies of Vienna and increasing industrialization, the Wiener Werkstätte collective sought to incorporate arts and crafts into all aspects of daily life and placed a premium on the handmade. Eight color lithographs created between 1907 and 1912 by various artists and designers affiliated with the group are also on view. Motifs similar to those found on Late Antique textiles were used as graphic elements in these cards and postcards.

On The Line: Intrepid & The Vietnam War - Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
Through October 02, 2017 - New York

On October 16, 2015, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will unveil On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War, a major exhibition exploring the events and impact of the Vietnam War through the lens of Intrepid's history. The exhibition, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of the conclusion of the war, will offer a site-specific immersion into an important chapter of American history.The legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid served three tours of duty in Vietnam between 1966 and 1969. Set within the very spaces where men lived and served, the exhibition will focus on the experiences of Intrepid and its crew "on the line"—the periods when the ship was active in the Gulf of Tonkin, launching aircraft for missions over mainland Vietnam. This localized history will serve as the starting point for understanding the larger historical landscape, including the Cold War, Operation Rolling Thunder and protests at home. The exhibition will include artifacts, photographs and film clips from the Museum's collection, many of which will be on display for the first time. The exhibition will also draw from the Museum's Oral History Project, an initiative launched in 2013 to record and preserve the stories of those who served on Intrepid, offering visitors the chance to hear the experiences of veterans in their own words, and to learn history firsthand. The exhibition, which is free with the price of admission, will include education programs for teachers and students, and a series of public programs to generate conversation and artistic expression.

Mad. Sq. Art: Josiah Mcelheny - Madison Square Park
Through October 08, 2017 - New York

Madison Square Park Conservancy is proud to announce its thirty-fourth exhibition, Prismatic Park by artist and MacArthur Foundation Fellow recipient Josiah McElheny. The project features three large sculptures of painted wood and prismatic glass on view in Madison Square Park from June 13, 2017 through October 8, 2017. The outdoor exhibition will comprise three exquisite sculptures in painted wood and prismatic glass: minimal, almost architectural forms that will create new spaces within the Park for the creation of music, dance, and poetry: a curvilinear, translucent blue sound wall for experimental music; a circular, reflective green floor for vanguard dance; and a vaulted-roofed luminous red and yellow pavilion for poetry. Each will refract the surrounding natural light, beckoning the passerby and regular Park visitor. The three structures will form open, stage-like platforms—in both the physical and metaphorical sense—for the collaborating choreographers, dancers, musicians, and poets who will be working next to them, on them, and under them in the summer of 2017. Throughout the exhibition, three nonprofit art organizations based in New York—Blank Forms, Danspace Project, and Poets House—will "inhabit" the Park to realize new commissions. The resident artists will create ambitious new work that summons the potential for imagination, creativity, and performance inspired by spontaneous audiences and chance encounters that only a public place, like an urban park, can offer. McElheny's sculptures are there to galvanize new movement, sound, and language. He has also offered the participating artists a prompt to consider the Park not only for performances, but also for rehearsals or even impromptu workshops. When not occupied by the resident artists, the public will have access to the sculptures to view or to adopt as a framework for their own innovative use. Interpretive materials, including dedicated Prismatic Park signage, a weekly free poster with images inspired by the commissions, a scholarly catalogue, and the Conservancy website will allow visitors to reflect on how public spaces can become sites to articulate diverse civic values including creative expression and chance meetings. In recent years, various parks have been especially important as sites for political assertion, such as Gezi Park in Istanbul, Tahrir Square in Cairo, and Zuccotti Park in New York. McElheny takes impetus from the activism of recent years, but Prismatic Park reconceives this ferment as an idealistic, almost utopian concept for the shared responsibility towards a public site that still allots space for the highly individual, unique voice. Josiah McElheny (American, b. 1966) holds a distinct role in the contemporary art field. He works in a range of mediums, including sculpture, installation, film, writing, and performance. In Prismatic Park, McElheny continues his examination of the way the transparency of glass is strongly linked to ideas within Modernist art, architecture, and philosophy. In this project he proposes that public sculpture might become a catalyst for the creation of new works by augmenting physical presence with the construction of shared spaces. Madison Square Park's 6.2-acre site welcomes more than 60,000 daily visitors—a richly diverse audience including local residents, families, public school groups and day camps, office workers, students, artists, and international tourists. Josiah McElheny emphasizes that this project is one of shared effort, between himself, the Park, the collaborating artists and, not least, inhabitants of and visitors to New York. "One of the most urgent societal issues today is how can we best share what little public space is left to us. Prismatic Park attempts to provide a partial answer to this question by suggesting that the arts can expand existing public spaces through the visionary efforts of individuals and small groups, creating works of art, dance, music and poetry in the middle of our city." "Our program of public art continues to push the boundaries of this field. Josiah McElheny's Prismatic Park is a hopeful use of a Park site where sculpture and performance will seamlessly unite for the tremendous benefit of Parkgoers," said Keats Myer, Executive Director, Madison Square Park Conservancy. "We are delighted to have this project on view in the summer of 2017 and to collaborate with our colleagues at Blank Forms, Danspace Project, and Poets House." Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Director and Martin Friedman Senior Curator, Mad. Sq. Art, said: "Josiah McElheny's Prismatic Park scrutinizes and poses alternatives for the use of public space for a democracy, for solidarity, for optimism. This project takes the impetus from recent activism in public parks and squares, but its core comes from an idealistic, almost utopian, concept of the optimism for the shared responsibility of a public site by people and the artist's role in solidifying that contract. By making three stunning prismatic glass works and by partnering with three nonprofits, McElheny is positing his works as platforms for questions of how sculpture can revamp other disciplines." A celebrated series of sculpture exhibitions by living artists, Mad. Sq. Art was launched by Madison Square Park Conservancy in 2004 to bring free public art programs to New York. The program has received extensive critical and public attention since its inception and has developed into a world-class cultural institution. Its ambition and scale expands each year alongside an increasingly diverse range of innovative, world-class artists.

Families can enjoy their beauty on a daily basis, or stop by for any of the pre-scheduled performances. Check madisonsquarepark.org for dates and times.

Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe. Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China's Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed. The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the "Peking Opera"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form's minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role. This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition. Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a substructure (usually wood) and then entails carving through the layers, is the most laborious and time-consuming of all lacquering techniques.

Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs - The Met
Through October 11, 2017 - New York

Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution's physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met's galleries of Asian art as the building's footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown. Forever a work in progress, The Met's collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum's holdings and legacy.

South Street Seaport Museum: Sail New York Harbor Aboard Schooner Pioneer - South Street Seaport Museum
Through October 14, 2017 - New York

South Street Seaport Museum Sail New York Harbor Aboard Schooner Pioneer The South Street Seaport Museum announces the beginning of the 2017 season to sail New York Harbor aboard the historic 1885 schooner Pioneer. Public sails began on Saturday May 27, 2017. Spend an afternoon at the Museum! Pioneer tickets include free admission to the Museum's historic ships and exhibitions on the day of your sail. Just bring the ticket to the Museum before or after your sail! The Museum now offers later hours allowing visitors to see the Museum's exhibitions before or after their Pioneer sail.  The Museum's historic ships and main exhibition space will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 11am-7pm from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.   Tickets for Pioneer are available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/947114.   Pioneer is also available for charters. Bring friends, family, coworkers, and colleagues aboard for a private 2-hour sail on New York Harbor with striking views of the lower Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty and Governors Island. Customized scheduling and catering recommendations are available. Contact charters@seany.org for details.     ABOUT THE SCHOONER PIONEER In the days before paved roads, small coastal schooners such as Pioneer were the delivery trucks of their era, carrying various cargoes between coastal communities: lumber and stone from the islands of Maine, brick on the Hudson River, and oyster shell on the Chesapeake Bay. Almost all American cargo sloops and schooners were wood, but because Pioneer was built in what was then this country's center of iron shipbuilding, shewas launched in 1885 with a wrought-iron hull. She was the first of only two cargo sloops built of iron in this country, and is the only iron-hulled American merchant sailing vessel still in existence.    By 1930, when new owners moved her from the Delaware River to Massachusetts, she had been fitted with an engine, and was no longer using sails. Beginning in 1966 she was substantially rebuilt, turning her back into a sailing vessel once again and relaunching her in 1968. Since 1970 she has been a part of the South Street Seaport Museum's collection, plying the waters of New York Harbor carrying adults and children instead of cargo in her current role as a piece of "living history."    Today Visitors can board Pioneer for 2-hour day and evening cruises as she sails New York Harbor May through October. School classes and other groups can book exciting education programs and Pioneer is available for private charter throughout her season. You can join the crew too! Pioneer is an award-winning sail training vessel teaching traditional maritime skills, and the art of tall ship sailing to volunteers of all kinds. Pioneer offers an experience that is unique in New York. Not a replica, but rather an authentic 1885 sailing vessel, a trip aboard Pioneer provides more than just an enjoyable cruise on the harbor; visitors can take part in using a 132 year old museum object for exactly the purpose which it was built: sailing.    There is no equal to a sail on Pioneer-step aboard, grab a halyard, or sit back and feel the wind on your face and become a part of "Where New York Begins."   ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America's National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where New York Begins."

Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through October 15, 2017 - New York

The French refer to the seventeenth century as the Grand Siècle, or the Great Century. Under the rule of Louis XIII and Louis XIV, the period saw a dramatic increase in French political and military power, the maturation of French courtly life at Versailles, and an unparalleled flourishing of the arts. Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age explores the work of some of the most celebrated artists of the time. More than fifty drawings largely from the Morgan's collections—including works by Claude Lorrain (1600–1682), Nicolas Poussin (1594–1665), Jacques Callot (1592–1635), and Charles Le Brun (1619–1690)—are on view in the exhibition. Together they demonstrate the era's distinctive approach to composition and subject matter, informed by principles of rationalism, respect for the art of classical antiquity, and by a belief in a natural world governed by divine order. Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age is made possible with generous support from the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Charitable Trust and the estate of Alex Gordon.

Twelve generations of kings lived, died, and were buried in sumptuous tombs carved into the nearby rocky hills. Since the mid 20th Century, nearly hundred tombs were excavated, revealing contents that testify to the Chu kings' affluence, as well as their beliefs in immortality and the afterlife. One of the most stunning finds was an elaborate jade sarcophagi burial suit, assembled from thousands of pieces of jade, the precious stone adored by Chinese people since the Neolithic period as an auspicious material that could ensure immortality.

Through December 25, 2017 - New York

nspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

Occupying 15,000 square feet of the Museum's second and third floors, the exhibition reveals the skills, material resources, and artistic decisions that go into making moving images. Behind the Screen also introduces visitors to the history of the moving image, from nineteenth-century optical toys to the present-day impact of digital tools on film editing and post-production. Children under the age of fourteen must be accompanied by an adult of eighteen years or older. Artifacts: The exhibition incorporates approximately 1,400 artifacts from the Museum's collection of the material culture of the moving image. These include historic film and television cameras, projectors, television sets, sound recording equipment, costumes, set design sketches and models, make-up, fan magazines, posters, and an outstanding collection of licensed merchandise?dolls, toys, board games, lunch boxes, and more. The Museum has also been a pioneer in collecting video arcade and console games, which are on exhibit and available for play by visitors. Recently acquired objects on view include makeup used on the stars of Sex in the City, a mechanical prop designed by Mike Marino for a climactic scene in Black Swan, and molds and prototypes produced during the creation of a King Kong action figure. Computer-based interactive experiences: Visitors may record their own movements as a sequence of still photographs that can be printed out and made into a flipbook; create their own stop-motion animations, which they can save and email; record their voices over dialogue from a film, following the same procedure that actors use when dubbing their lines in post-production; choose sound effects to add to the images of well-known movies and television shows; add music to scenes from movies, and to experience how music affects mood and tone. Audio-visual material: Behind the Screen includes nearly four hours of audio-visual material that ranges from film clips related to the artifacts on display; projections of the earliest kinetoscope films, The Great Train Robbery, and selections from The Jazz Singer and Nanook of the North, all of which bring key moments in film history vividly to life; special videos, including The First Movies about Etienne Jules Marey and Chuck Workman's Precious Images; and a simulation of a live TV control room, taking visitors inside the room where director Bill Webb called the shots for the broadcast of a game between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres.

Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) Announces 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign - Theater Resources Unlimited
Through December 31, 2017 - New York

25 years of service to the theater. Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) Announces 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign: $25 for 25 In celebration of their 25th Anniversary, Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU)announces a fundraising campaign: $25 for 25, in honor of 25 years of service to the theater community. The goal is to raise $25,000 by end of year to help support and expand the educational programming TRU offers the theater community, as well as to make possible travel stipends to out-of-state writers who are accepted into the annual TRU Voices Reading Series. In a nation where arts programs have been depleted if not discarded, TRU provides an economic opportunity to continue an education in the art (and business) of producing theater. As a professional producer for over twenty-five years, TRU has given me the opportunity to retrace my journey, re-confirm my knowledge. - Michael Alden, theater and film producer (Disgraced, Come from Away, Grey Gardens, Not That Jewish, Bat Boy; films: The Hours, Kissing Jessica Stein)   The quarter-century of accomplishments of this modest arts service organization are surprising to those who do not know TRU, including: 25 YEARS of helping producers and all theater professionals understand and better navigate the business of theater; 25 YEARS of putting people together at all levels of experience, and offering some of the best networking opportunities in the business; 25 YEARS of providing a forum for people to put out requests and offers of services to their peers; 25 YEARS of cultivating relationships between the producer and artist communities and encouraging better communication; 25 YEARS of monthly panels to keep the community current on developments and grounded in the basics of the business. With the funding environment for the arts being more uncertain than ever, TRU hopes to assure their continued work by reaching a minimum goal of $25,000 in donations by end of the year. Visit https://truonline.org/25-years/#donation25 for donation buttons, or to learn more about becoming a member visit https://truonline.org/membership/. Read more about TRU - here are two articles about the organization published last month:  How Theater Resources Unlimited Bridges the Gap Between Art and Business  - Philanthropy Journal   "How do you get to Broadway? Practice, practice, practice. How do you become a producer? While it may not be a punch line, the answer for many people has been joining at a group called Theater Resources Unlimited." - Show Business Weekly Here are just some of the reasons to support TRU: - The TRU Voices Play Reading Series has helped develop 63 new plays, sometimes matching playwrights with producers, other times providing a writer and producer with a "first date" opportunity (all expenses paid) to get to know each other - and the work itself  - a little better. Taxi to Jannah  by Mark Sickman went on to productions at Queens Theatre in the Park and 59e59; Missives by Garret Jon Groenveld moved to an off-Broadway run at 59e59; The Forgetting Curve by Vanda had a subsequent run in Boston; Film Chinois by Damon Chua and Pied a Terre  by John Anastasi were both published by Samuel French and have had further productions in and outside of New York; Appendage by Derek Murphy moved into a run at the 1st Irish Festival; Echoes of Octavia by Michelle Johnson was optioned for development by Rhymes over Beats; Angels and Ministers of Grace... by Elaine Smith had a run at NJ Repertory Company; and The Assignment used the TRU series as a stepping stone to a recent off-Broadway run. - The TRU Voices Musicals Reading Series has helped develop 45 new works of musical theater, nurturing 45 writer-producer teams. Saint Heaven by Martin Casella and Keith Gordon, with TRU producer Van Dean, went on to developmental productions at Village Theatre in Issaqua and a full production at Stamford Center for the Performing Arts; The Great American Trailer Park Musical had a major off-Broadway run in 2005 and national tour; nor'mal went on to win a prestigious Jonathan Larsen Award and had productions in universities across the country; Sunfish was the winner of the top jury honor (Best American Musical) at the 2013 Daegu International Musical Festival in South Korea, as well as a 2005 Jonathan Larson Award recipient; and My Life Is a Musical was optioned for commercial development from our series and had a production at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor. - The TRU Audition Event has helped over 200 actors every year find jobs and helped over 60 producers and theater companies each year find actors to cast in their shows.

Mummies - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

For thousands of years, peoples around the world practiced mummification as a way of preserving and honoring their dead. Mummies brings you face to face with some of these ancient individuals and reveals how scientists are using modern technology to glean stunning details about them and their cultures. In Mummies, ancient remains from the Nile Valley of Africa and the Andes Mountains of South America will be on view, allowing visitors to connect with cultures from the distant past. Mummification, a more widespread practice than most think, was used not only for royal Egyptians but also for common people and even animals. The process was employed by cultures around the world. In the Chancay culture of Peru, mummifying deceased family members meant relatives could keep connected with their loved ones; some families even brought mummy bundles to festivals. Egyptians, on the other hand, created mummies to help individuals enter the afterlife, often encasing the mummies in elaborately painted sarcophagi. At Mummies, interactive touch tables let visitors virtually "unravel" or see inside mummies as they delve deep into the unique stories of the people or animals who lie within. Other parts of the exhibition showcase the latest isotopic and DNA testing being performed on mummies, and explain how these sophisticated analytical techniques are helping scientists discover important clues about long-vanished practices. Mummies was developed by The Field Museum, Chicago.

Video Arcade: Changing Exhibitions Gallery - Museum of the Moving Image
Through January 15, 2018 - Astoria

In 1980, $2.8 billion in quarters were pumped into video arcade games in the United States, more than triple the revenue from any previous year. The video arcade had arrived, as a popular culture phenomenon and a vital force in the entertainment industry. Improved graphics, game design, and marketing made such games as Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, and Pac-Man into addictive and commercially successful hits. At their peak, there were more than 10,000 video arcades across the country. Within a decade, the rise of the personal computer and home consoles would mark the end of the video arcade’s golden age. This arcade allows visitors to play 23 of the era’s most beloved games, in their original form.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

San Marco Quartet - Arts Brookfield
Through February 21, 2018 - New York

San Marco Quartet layers all the actions of people and pigeons on Piazza San Marco in Venice into a pair of evolving images showing two views. The images are lit by movement; things that are not moving are invisible. Walking pigeons leave worm-like traces. Gathered people disappear through their shifting motions. Tour groups flow across the image like a river. The left side combines the activities into a very long exposed image that develops over several minutes. In the projection on the right, the past fades more quickly. The moving images are presented as two video projections mirrored at their point of meeting. They use the same material and with differences in how time is portrayed. They present a record of the temporary social architecture that is shaped by the permanent physical architecture of the piazz ABOUT DAVID ROKEBY David Rokeby is an installation artist based in Toronto, Canada. He has been creating and exhibiting since 1982. For the first part of his career he focused on interactive pieces that directly engage the human body, or that involve artificial perception systems.

Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract is home to about 100 trillion bacteria? That's more organisms than there are stars in the Milky Way! Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. This new perspective leads us to look at our bodies not just as individuals, but as entire ecosystems.Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health and introduces some of the scientists who are breaking new ground in microbiome research.Inspired by the Museum's popular exhibition The Secret World Inside You, this exhibition introduces visitors to microbes that live in, on, and around all of us. Engaging graphics detail how microbes aid digestion, influence your immune system, and help fight harmful microbes. You'll find out how we acquire our microbiome and how it is shaped by the foods we eat and the environment we live in. Inside You is co-curated by Susan Perkins and Rob DeSalle, curators in the Museum's Division of Invertebrate Zoology and the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics. Inside You is proudly supported by the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson. This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of the Arthur Ross Foundation.

New Permanent Exhibit: Titanosaur - The American Museum of Natural History
Through January 19, 2020 - Upper West Side

The museum adds another must-see exhibit opening on January 15, a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur Titanosaur that is part of a special year of dinosaur events, exhibitions, and digital offerings. Paleontologists have inferred that this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 77 tons—as much as 14 or 15 African elephants. In preparation for adding this colossal new exhibit, the museum closed the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center in September to remove the hall's current incumbent: a life-sized—but, by comparison, diminutive—fleshed-out model of a juvenile Barosaurus that has been on display since the completion of the fourth floor in June 1996. The new, much larger occupant will graze the gallery's approximately 19-foot-high ceilings and, at 122 feet (37.2 meters), is just a bit too long to fit completely into the space. Instead, its neck and head will extend out towards the elevator banks, welcoming visitors to the "dinosaur" floor.

Connected Worlds - New York Hall of Science
Through January 31, 2020 - Flushing Meadows, Queens

The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will open Connected Worlds, its exciting and groundbreaking new exhibition on environmental sustainability, on June 27, 2015. Presented in NYSCI's iconic Great Hall, Connected Worlds is a fully immersive, digitally rendered interactive experience where visitors are encouraged to explore the interconnectedness of different environments, learn about the importance of keeping systems in balance, and see how our individual and collective actions can have widespread impact. Through their gestures and movements, visitors interact with animated creatures, plants, trees and other objects, and see how human decisions affect the environment. "Connected Worlds reflects what NYSCI is all about – a playful hands-on activity, a focus on problem-solving, and deep engagement with a topic. Connected Worlds gives visitors confidence in their ability to effect change, and empowers them within a larger environment," said Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. "This leads to passionate learners – a hallmark of the NYSCI experience." Connected Worlds features gesture-based technologies that generate and project images onto seven massive screens. Six of the screens are more than 14 feet tall and one screen, which shows a digital waterfall, is 38 feet tall. The screens show six different, but interconnected, environments – desert, mountain valley, plains, reservoir, jungle and wetlands – each with their own unique trees, plants and creatures, but sharing common resources, such as water and weather patterns. Some of the animals travel across environments for breeding or to access food. A central reservoir, which is fed by the waterfall and supplies water to the six environments, is projected on the floor, covering approximately 2,300 square feet.

Picasso's Le Tricorne - New-York Historical Society
Through December 31, 2020 - Upper West Side

Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depicts a scene with a bullring and celebratory spectators. Picasso painted it as an illusionistic window in a larger curtain that functioned as a backdrop setting the scene for the ballet. At some point before 1956 Diaghilev cut it from its larger context. For more than half a century the curtain, believed to be the largest Picasso painting in the United States, has hung in the hallway of the Four Seasons Restaurant, in the landmarked Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, on Park Avenue and Fifty-second Street in New York City. Vivendi, the company that once owned the Seagram Building, gave the Picasso curtain to the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2005 as a "Gift to the City." The show positions Picasso's curtain in a dialogue with other N-YHS objects, including paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work as well as to the traditions against which the revolutionary artist rebelled. Other thematic threads pivot around dance subjects and explore roughly contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors. Among the works included will be examples by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Will H. Bradley, Philippe de Champaigne, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Childe Hassam, Malvina Hoffman, Ricardo de Madrazo y Garreta, Elie Nadelman, Edward Penfield, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Adriaen van Utrecht.

Its average ticket price of $141 remains one of the highest box office rates in its niche. This amazing hit was originally in book form and the creativity of Steven Levenson led to its seamless transition to a wave-making high school musical. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the musicals for Dear Evan Hansen. It is on track to be one of the most successful pieces of musical theater ever to originate in Washington. The plot is centered on the peculiar problem of communicating in a time where technology has made it easier to reach out to people. Evan Hansen is a friendless high school student who achieves Internet fame due to a misunderstanding he perpetuates in regards to his supposed closeness to another troubled classmate who committed suicide. The twists in the story line help to accentuate the challenges that the younger generation face in today’s world. The gripping effects of the story and the raw show of emotions make this story one of the most amazing productions to ever grace Broadway. Parents can gain more insight and understanding into their children. Children can watch and learn how challenging it is for their parents to understand them at times. Grandparents, well, they will get to view this communications conundrum from all angles and certainly gain a good chuckle along the way. This record-setting, sold-out musical has been attracting positive reviews from leading names in the industry and beyond. Peter Marks of the Washington post calls it ‘’A heart-piercing trip to the place that musical theater can sometimes take us to.’’ He believes that this musical, which was first performed on November 14, 2016, holds the ace in every range. On the other hand, Charles Isherwood of the New York Times proclaims “This is a superb musical with great heart and humor.’’ When you leave a musical with one or two great songs running through your head, it can be said to be a success. However, leaving a musical with about 10 great songs running through your head is pretty much unheard of. The power of Dear Evan Hansen has set a new height that may not be surpassed by any production for many years. This is a performance that anyone serious about the arts absolutely must see and a performance certain to draw in permanently that first time attendee to a Broadway performance.
