Poetry of Witness: 5-week poetry workshop w/ Michael Collins - Bowery Poetry Club
February 11, 2018 - New York

Discussion, Generative Writing, Workshop: 5-week poetry workshop w/ Michael Collins This workshop will meet the following Sundays: February 11, February 18, February 25, March 4, March 18 TIME/LOCATION: 12 PM – 2 PM at Bowery Poetry located at 308 Bowery INSTRUCTOR: Michael Collins The goal of this class will be to explore the craft of poetry, specifically in one of its many essential roles, bearing witness -- either by recording direct experience or through acts of compassionate imagination. I don't think I need to explain to anyone why this particular approach to poetic craft is important in our current social and political situations. In times such as these, we need more empathy for those who are "different" -- apparently, anyway -- in one way or another, from "us." We need more poets for this movement! Therefore, this class will aim to welcome newer poets with accessible lessons, invite those who have gotten out of the practice of writing to return to a writing community, and help all participants who value diverse perspectives to hone their visions into poems. Sessions will include discussion of model poems and related generative writing and guided exercises, and work... (read more)

The Band's Visit: Stage - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
February 11, 2018 - New York

The misadventures of an Egyptian "Ceremonial Police Orchestra" stranded in a remote Israeli town are hardly the ordinary fare of a Broadway musical.

"It is time to fall in love with one of the most ravishing musicals ever," wrote Ben Brantley of The New York Times. Rex Reed called it "a work of perfection." But that fictional Egyptian band didn't start off on stage. It sprang to life in a 2007 Israeli film of the same name, one of the best movies of the year according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It's about what happened to innocent people when this country demonized and incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II. To witness it now—as anti-Muslim rumblings are being trumped up to a roar…I can only urge everyone who cares about how theater connects to this country's past and future to catch Pan Asian Rep's No-No Boy wherever whenever you can."

Public Lecture Series with Andrew Rowen - Explorers Club Inc
February 12, 2018 - New York

1492 Retold: A Bicultural Reexamination of Columbus's Epic Voyage Andrew Rowen is the author of Encounters Unforeseen: 1492 Retold, which dramatizes the history of Columbus's epic voyage and first encounters with Native Americans from a bicultural perspective, presenting Native American beliefs, thoughts, and actions side by side with those of Columbus and other Europeans, all closely based on primary sources and anthropological studies. Rowen's talk explores how and why the encounters in 1492 and 1493 enfolded as they did from both peoples' perspectives. He will summarize geographical, social, and religious beliefs and practices of the Taíno chieftains and peoples who met Columbus side by side those of Columbus and Spain's Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. Building on this background, he will examine how these beliefs and practices played out in a few of the encounters' key moments as Columbus's voyage of "discovery" traveled about the Caribbean in 1492. None of the participants could discern the violence and battlegrounds of the ensuing centuries, and a key question for them was whether the other peoples would be friend or enemy.

February 12, 2018 - West Village

Angela Ball Angela Ball is the author of six books of poetry. Her new collection, Talking Pillow (University of Pittsburgh Press), celebrates love as amazement, sustenance, and the progenitor of scarce-believable loss.

Democracy in the 21st Century: Where is it Heading? - Japan Society
February 13, 2018 - New York

Recent developments, such as the rise of populism in Europe, Britain's vote to leave the European Union, and polarized media coverage from the United States, are shaking assumptions about democracy and democratic practices. A study on political systems by Pew Research Center revealed that "there are reasons for calm as well as concern when it comes to democracy's future." The findings indicate that the American public is largely divided over democracy: 46% are satisfied with the way democracy is functioning, and 51% trust the government to act in the country's best interests. Does our democracy remain strong, or is there cause for concern? In this program, experts examine the current state of democracy and ways to strengthen government amid dwindling public trust.

But when Alice's grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: Her mother is stolen away?by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. Alice's only lead is the message her mother left behind: "Stay away from the Hazel Wood." Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother's cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother's tales began?and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.

MAGIC GIANT Inside a Redwood tree off the coast of California; within a tunnel by Snoqualmie Pass; on an airstrip in Marble, Colorado; in a wild daisy field near Crested Butte—these are just a few of the places Los Angeles trio, Magic Giant, recorded its debut album, aptly titled, In the Wind (Washington Square/Razor & Tie). Austin Bisnow (lead vocals), Zambricki Li (banjo, violin, harmonica), and Zang (acoustic guitar, cello) welcomed nature into the fold as their unofficial fourth member. "It was fate," recalls Zambricki. "We were scheduled to play all these festivals—Electric Forest, Wanderlust, Lightning in a Bottle—that just so happened to be in really beautiful parts of the country." During Spring 2016, the boys bought a shuttle bus, converted it into a solar-powered mobile recording studio, added a California King on hydraulics, and fondly named her Queen Elizabeth. "There were spaces of time between shows where we could get creative," explains Zang. "Using the bus to power microphones, we recorded outside—literally In The Wind—across North America." "Living in the city, it's easy to forget how enchanting the road can be," Zang adds. "We recorded anywhere and everyw... (read more)

How Art Can (and Can't) Save a Place - 92nd Street Y
February 16, 2018 - New York

Art has played a central role in three wildly different communities: Fogo Island, Newfoundland, a remote fishing community in the North Atlantic; Sag Harbor; and Greenwich Village. These areas — one profoundly remote, another more suburban and the other fully urban — are so different yet share one thing. Being home to artists and the art they create has defined these communities culturally, economically and in countless other ways. We will hear from Zita Cobb, who has helped usher in an artistic and economic renaissance in Fogo Island; Eric Fischl, the celebrated painter known for capturing his native Long Island; and Adam Davidson, economics writer for The New Yorker who grew up and is on the board of Westbeth, the artist housing that helped transform the Meatpacking district of Greenwich Village. They will discuss how art can best interact with local communities, how it can be abused and what lessons their very different experiences share in common.

Starcrawler - Rough Trade NYC
February 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

Starcrawler Starcrawler are a Los Angeles rock & roll band formed one year ago when Arrow de Wilde first met Henri Cash on the high school yard in Echo Park. The rhythm section of Austin Smith and Tim Franco came soon after, found on the streets of Hollywood. They play rock & roll music heavy and loud and their incendiary performances resemble the children of the Cramps, the Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, and Alice Cooper. "Ants," a song they recorded days after first playing together, was quickly discovered by London DJ Matt Wilkinson and debuted on Apple Beats One radio just as the band were playing their first few shows. The DJ loved it so much, he played it twice in a row. Soon after, it found its way to Sir Elton John, who spun it on his "Rocket Hour" radio program, as well as to Zane Lowe, who played it to further accolades. Much media interest both from the music and fashion worlds has quickly followed. "Ants" & the forthcoming "Used to Know" are from an early session recorded by Steven McDonald (Red Kross) and document the unhinged beginnings of the group taking their first steps into the public eye. They have only now found the time to take a breath and are recording their more full... (read more)

Set after World War II as Japanese Americans return to the West Coast, No-No Boy follows Ichiro Yamada, who struggles to reconnect with the Seattle community, after taking a bold stance on questions of allegiance. John Stoltenberg of DC Metro Theater Arts says: "No-No Boy is an extraordinary and essential play. It's about what happened to innocent people when this country demonized and incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II. To witness it now—as anti-Muslim rumblings are being trumped up to a roar…I can only urge everyone who cares about how theater connects to this country's past and future to catch Pan Asian Rep's No-No Boy wherever whenever you can."

Doors 8:00 pm Show 9:00 pm Now, Now With the release of "SGL", Now, Now emerge from a transformative and transitional few years since their last shows played in support of Threads. Much has changed, with the mutual and amicable departure of guitarist Jess Abbott to pursue a different creative direction through her work as Tancred being the most visibly apparent difference. That parting of ways is only a fraction of the story however. Below the surface lay challenges, struggle, and a lot of growth for KC Dalager and Brad Hale as people, musicians, and songwriters. And while as a duo they find themselves back to the same binary dynamic they started with over a decade ago, they couldn't be further from who they were when two friends who met at marching band practice and started making music together in a basement. As they wrapped up nearly three years of writing, recording, and then touring in support of Threads, KC and Brad were mentally and emotionally worn out. "We couldn't find a way to recharge ourselves creatively," recalls KC, and that lead to a feedback loop of writer's block and self-doubt.

No-No Boy - Theater Row
Through February 17, 2018 - New York

Iconic return in tandem with Day of Remembrance, No-No Boy follows Ichiro as he and his community try to get back on their feet after a war that has uprooted them. Set after World War II as Japanese Americans return to the West Coast, No-No Boy follows Ichiro Yamada, who struggles to reconnect with the Seattle community, after taking a bold stance on questions of allegiance. John Stoltenberg of DC Metro Theater Arts says: "No-No Boy is an extraordinary and essential play. It's about what happened to innocent people when this country demonized and incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II. To witness it now—as anti-Muslim rumblings are being trumped up to a roar…I can only urge everyone who cares about how theater connects to this country's past and future to catch Pan Asian Rep's No-No Boy wherever whenever you can."

Poetry of Witness: 5-week poetry workshop w/ Michael Collins - Bowery Poetry Club
February 18, 2018 - New York

Discussion, Generative Writing, Workshop: 5-week poetry workshop w/ Michael Collins This workshop will meet the following Sundays: February 11, February 18, February 25, March 4, March 18 TIME/LOCATION: 12 PM – 2 PM at Bowery Poetry located at 308 Bowery INSTRUCTOR: Michael Collins The goal of this class will be to explore the craft of poetry, specifically in one of its many essential roles, bearing witness -- either by recording direct experience or through acts of compassionate imagination. I don't think I need to explain to anyone why this particular approach to poetic craft is important in our current social and political situations. In times such as these, we need more empathy for those who are "different" -- apparently, anyway -- in one way or another, from "us." We need more poets for this movement! Therefore, this class will aim to welcome newer poets with accessible lessons, invite those who have gotten out of the practice of writing to return to a writing community, and help all participants who value diverse perspectives to hone their visions into poems. Sessions will include discussion of model poems and related generative writing and guided exercises, and work... (read more)

She can sing. She can act. She has comic timing…the confidence, the unmitigated chutzpah…" – Crikey Sydney "Between the tall tales, double entendre, and tongue-in-cheek vulgarity, the heartache behind the humour, most evident in Alcorn's rendition of Am I Blue, elevates her titillating tribute to a tender triumph." – The West Australian

February 18, 2018 - Queens

For the project 17.(SEPT) [By WeistSiréPC]™, American artist Julia Weist and Cuban artist Nestor Siré explore and intervene in El Paquete Semanal or "the weekly package," a cultural and economic phenomenon that developed in Cuba in place of internet connectivity, in which a 1 terabyte digital media collection is aggregated weekly and circulated across the country via in-person file sharing. These transactions are performed between Cubans and their paqueteros or Paquete agent/guide. The centerpiece of 17.(SEPT) [By WeistSiréPC]™ is a 64 terabyte server containing 52 weeks of El Paquete Semanal, from August 2016 – August 2017. It is the only formalized archive of the Paquete and its construction and deployment was designed around the legal and logistical restrictions of the changing US-Cuba relations over the last year. From this archive, Weist and Sire have produced WeistSire PC [Matriz] (2016-2017), a catalog of Paquete content, free for visitors to the Museum to take. In order to create this "legal paquete" the artists sent thousands of emails to secure permission from copyright holders of content from the week of August 8, 2016 to make this distribution permissible according t...
