Vangeline Theater / New York Butoh Institute presents
??re??? (Erasure)
With butoh dancer Vangeline
Thursday-Saturday at 8pm
Sunday at 3pm
May 16-19, 2019
Theater for the New City's Johnson Theater

Vangeline Theater and the New York Butoh Institute present ??re??? (Erasure), running May 16-19, 2019 at Theater for the New City's Johnson Theater, with performances Thursday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm.

??re??? (Erasure) is the second installment of a performance triptych by butoh artist Vangeline. The 60-minute solo explores butoh techniques of erasure, as well as the phenomenon of female erasure taking place in our society. Vangeline, who both created and performs the piece, states, "Women are the forgotten of history. We have been silenced, erased from memory; even our names have been erased, while famous men were laid in the Pantheon for posterity. How many women writers, artists, scientists are there, whose names we will never know or remember? Through the magic of Butoh, I will "erase" myself, and give space for women to come back and dance through me."

Tickets for the performance are $15 General Admission and can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/re-erasure-ticketsP7540984634.

The 2019 DTSA Conference: Screening Performance, Performing Screens: New Projections in Theatre and Media

This conference gathers scholars and artists from multiple disciplines around the trope of the screen with its varying resonances, to explore as-yet-unseen avenues of understanding across media. Participants will reflect on the many collisions of theatre, performance, film, and other audiovisual media in scholarly, artistic, pedagogical, or performance-as-research works that engage with and challenge meanings of the word “screen,” as both noun and verb.
Issues we will explore include how historical conceptualizations of screens can help us broaden the concept beyond the context of new media and interactive technologies, how engagement with and on screens has expanded or reshaped production and distribution of art and knowledge, and how reception and spectatorship have been modified by the constant presence of screens.

To emphasize the transdisciplinary nature of the conference, activities will include papers, performances, lecture-performances, and installations.
Organized by: Kyueun Kim, Curtis Russell, Christine Snyder, and Mara Valderrama

Featuring artists:

Edda Sickinger, Mathew Tobin, sair goetz, Jumoke Adeyanju, Paula Vilaplana, Ashley Marinaccio, Andrew Zuliani, Paulina Olivares, Clareese Hill, Michael Harrington, K.B. Thors, and Carrie Sijia Wang.

Presents
Olive & Pearl

(*11:45 AM are Relaxed Performance Options)
May 11, 2019 @3PM
Click here for tickets and location

Olive & Pearl, for ages 2-5 and their families, tells the story of a young girl, Olive, who is raised by her Granny, Pearl. Centered on thematic elements of home, and what a home means, young audiences are invited into a cozy and gentle world, rich with sensory experiences. The story follows Olive throughout her day, as she is affectionately taken care of by her grandmother. Granny Pearl builds fires, warms tea, makes meals, has a comforting lap to tell stories on and safe arms to rock Olive to sleep. Throughout their day the characters play, go on an imaginary journey to the moon, sing songs, and dance. Puppets, who reinforce the imagery of home, create additional characters; there is a mouse in its hole, and a fish in its water bowl and fairies in their fairy tree. Home is not only the structure of one’s house, but the place one longs for to feel safety, love and warmth. Magical, visual, stimulating, and oftentimes funny, Olive & Pearl is performed through beautiful puppetry, dance and an original live music score inspired by melodies of Bluegrass, Irish Fiddle, and traditional lullabies. A first introduction into live theatre, Olive & Pearl is both a mirror and a window, for the very young child, into what is the meaning of home. Perfect for the Family!

*Treehouse Shakers will include Relaxed Performances for the 11:45 AM performances of Olive & Pearl on May 9 & 10, 2019. These performances are part of our commitment to making our work accessible to all. Relaxed Performances are designed to welcome audience members who will benefit from a less restrictive audience environment, including (but not limited to) those with sensory processing conditions, Autism, and learning or intellectual disabilities. Everyone is invited to these performances.

OWEN WINGRAVE
With a libretto by Myfanwy Piper

May 9-12, 2019
GK ArtsCenter

The little OPERA theatre of ny (LOTNY) presents the New York Premiere of Benjamin Britten's opera in two acts, OWEN WINGRAVE, with libretto by Myfanwy Piper, at GK Arts Center, 29 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY, from May 9-12, 2019, with performances on Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3pm.

In Benjamin Britten's hauntingly intense opera based on a ghost story by Henry James, Owen Wingrave sets a young man's scruples and beliefs against the fanaticism of his family. Wingrave is a young man who comes home to confront his family and rebel against its military past. The ghosts of his ancestors and a dark secret haunt all the inhabitants of the Wingrave home. Britten's powerful score etches strong individual voices caught within a fraught atmosphere. Originally commissioned by the BBC, it premiered on television in 1971, and was subsequently performed at Covent Garden in 1973. This production will be part of the Fourth New York Opera Alliance Opera Fest.

A block party kicks off the celebratory events on Saturday, May 4, from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm, with free activities, performances, and community art-making from the constituent organizations that comprise Lincoln Center. Musical Director Sunny Jain will coordinate the day’s performances, leading a series of concerts on Josie Robertson Plaza.

In front of a crowd of 12,000 and a TV audience of millions, President Dwight D. Eisenhower presided over Lincoln Center’s groundbreaking on May 14, 1959. He described it as “a great cultural adventure,” saying, in part, “Here will occur a true interchange of the fruits of national cultures. From this will develop a growth that will spread to the corners of the Earth, bringing with it the kind of human message that only individuals—not governments—can transmit.” The ceremony included a performance of the U.S. national anthem by the New York Philharmonic and Juilliard Chorus, as well as solo performances by singers from The Metropolitan Opera, with Leonard Bernstein as master of ceremonies.

A Celebration of the Life of French-Egyptian Singer Dalida
Thursday, May 2 at 8:00 PM
Friday, May 3 at 8:00 PM
Saturday, May 4 at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM
Sunday May 5 at 2:00 PM
Ideal Glass Studio

FRAGMENTS OF A STAR, a new production directed by Oliver Henzler and featuring a terrific ensemble cast of French and American performers, will have a five show run at Ideal Glass Studio in New York’s East Village from May 2-5. The performance celebrates the life and legacy of the French-Egyptian singer Dalida whose successful music career spanned 30 years.

Born in Cairo to Italian parents in 1933, Dalida remains one of the best known French solo female artists. She sold 140 million albums worldwide over the course of her decades-long career, dazzling audiences with her costumes and elaborate shows. Dalida sang in multiple languages and various genres, everything from French chansons to disco. Her private life was interrupted by several tragic events culminating in her suicide in 1987. Even with an adoring public and a love for the stage, the enormous task of balancing a fulfilled private life with celebrity became tragically impossible.? Yet her legacy is in her music, her joy-filled performance, her courage and her drive.

The devised collaborative theater piece incorporates live music, choreographed movement pieces, and film and aims to shine a light on Dalida’s public and private person while also introducing this mega star to American audiences who are largely unaware of her influential career in the French speaking world.
Performance in French and English, with English subtitles

SATURDAY, APRIL 27
7:00 PM: Doors Open | 8:15 PM: Film Begins | 9:45 PM: Q&A with director Rachel Lears
LAWRENCE VIRGILIO PLAYGROUND


Museum of the Moving Image and Rooftop Films present a special free community sneak preview screening of Netflix's original documentary Knock Down the House, featuring a post-show Q&A with director Rachel Lears!

When tragedy struck her family in the midst of the financial crisis, Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts in a restaurant to save her home from foreclosure. After losing a loved one to a preventable medical condition, Amy Vilela didn’t know what to do with the anger she felt about America’s broken health care system. Cori Bush was drawn into the streets when the police shooting of an unarmed black man brought protests and tanks into her neighborhood. Paula Jean Swearengin was fed up with watching her friends and family suffer and die from the environmental effects of the coal industry.

At a moment of historic volatility in American politics, these four women decide to fight back, setting themselves on a journey that will change their lives and their country forever. Without political experience or corporate money, they build a movement of insurgent candidates challenging powerful incumbents in Congress. Their efforts result in a legendary upset.

2019 DTSA Booth Award:
Honoring Ishmael Houston-Jones
Monday, April 15 6:30pm Award Ceremony
Segal Theatre

Ishmael Houston-Jones choreographer, author, performer, teacher, and curator. His improvised dance and text work has been performed in New York, across the US, and in Europe, Canada, Australia, and Latin America. He and Fred Holland shared a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for Cowboys, Dreams and Ladders. He was awarded his second “Bessie” Award for the revival of THEM, his 1985/86 collaboration with writer Dennis Cooper and composer Chris Cochrane. He curated Platform 2012: Parallels and Platform 2016: Lost & Found, both at Danspace Project. He has received a 2016 Herb Alpert, a 2015 Doris Duke Impact and a 2013 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Artists Awards. In 2017 he received a third “Bessie” for Variations on Themes from Lost and Found: Scenes from a Life and other Works by John Bernd.


Houston-Jones’s performance works and curatorial projects attend to the urgent materiality of the sexed, raced, desiring body on stage. As an educator, Houston-Jones has passed down improvisational techniques and practices that are both artistically experimental and that helped maintain and perpetuate experimental dance during periods of embodied and economic crisis. Through the 2010 re-staging of THEM and his curatorial and choreographic work on the Danspace Platform 2016: Lost & Found, Houston-Jones has ensured that a new generation of dance artists inherit the kinesthetic legacy of the early AIDS epidemic’s impact on the New York dance community. He has simultaneously nurtured the development of new work by young dance artists, especially those who are queer and/or of color. In recognition of his outstanding oeuvre as a performer and choreographer, as well as his commitment to the legacy and continuation of experimental performance practices through his curatorial and pedagogical practices, the Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association of the CUNY Graduate Center is proud to present Ishmael Houston-Jones with the 2019 Booth Award.

As Flea observed, "Bands develop their own weird ways of doing things." On April 14th at 8pm at Shrine NYC, Composers Concordance co-presents with Robert Brashear the program 'Eclectic Bands,' featuring groups distinguished by their unusual instrumentations and brazen combinations of styles. First up are The Yorkvillians, an instrumental combo led by composer-bassist Dan Cooper and composer-accordionist William Schimmel, together with Michiyo Suzuki - clarinet and Max Maples - drums. This will be followed by Robert Brashear and The Home Away Blues Band. Next, Gene Pritsker's Sound Liberation incorporates its philosophy by performing compositions that encompass a diverse range of musical genres, heavily influenced by hip-hop and rock rhythms. Sound Lib. will feature Charles Coleman - voice, Franz Hackl - trumpet, Vessko Gellev - violin, and Simon Springer - drums. Rounding out the program, vibraphone, guitar, bass, and drums are enough for the Austrian group HI5 to casually tear down limited music genres, being playful and creative at the same time. Featuring Matthias Legner - vibraphone, Philipp Ossanna - guitar, Clemens Rofner - bass, and Chris Norz - drums.

The Rooftop Films Gala is a celebration of excellence in independent cinema, and will likewise use this occasion to recognize talented individuals whose recent work has exemplified the Rooftop spirit of innovation, creative collaboration, artistic daring, and inclusiveness!

This year we're honoring two gifted and fearless alumni filmmakers with deep connections to the Rooftop community:

Amy Seimetz, actress, director, and producer, who co-created Golden Globe-nominated STARZ series The Girlfriend Experience with Steven Soderbergh! Rooftop Films Summer Series selection Sun Don’t Shine, Seimetz’s directorial debut feature, won a special jury prize at SXSW in 2012 and was later nominated for two Gotham Awards. Her short film in which she also appeared, When We Lived In Miami, was chosen to play the 2013 Summer Series, and she also appeared in 2010 Summer Series pick Tiny Furniture, directed by Lena Dunham.

Penny Lane, an award-winning documentarian and 2018 Rooftop Filmmakers Fund Grantee for her upcoming feature, Hail Satan? (soon-to-be theatrically released by Magnolia Pictures)! Her three previous feature docs are The Pain of Others (2018), Nuts! (2016), and Rooftop Films Summer Series selection Our Nixon (2013). We first screened Penny’s work in 2010 with the short film The Commoners, and most recently, her 2018 short Normal Appearances.

Much more than your run-of-the-mill fundraiser, this will be a spectacular, unique, and fun Rooftop-style party celebrating art, film and community, with live performance, food, drinks, music, special guests, and more!

Saturday at 8PM and Sunday matinees at 2PM 
March 22nd - April 13th Thursday
Chain Theatre

NYC Premiere of a new play by Emmy nominated Keith Huff (Mad Men, House of Cards, American Crime). Keith Huff's most recent Broadway production was the sold out sensation A Steady Rain starring Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig. Chain Theatre is an award winning theatre company and SIX CORNERS will be the first main stage production in their new location at the Theatre Building in midtown Manhattan. Late one night, two burnt-out violent crimes unit detectives try their damnedest to close the puzzling murder of a CTA employee. What should be a simple open-and-shut case, however, evolves into a horrifying mystery and unearths a legacy of violence stretching back years. Inspired by a personal story, SIX CORNERS is the third in a loose Chicago cop trilogy that began with A Steady Rain followed by The Detective's Wife.  Mr. Huff has also written Big Lake Big City (Lookingglass Theater, directed by David Schwimmer), and Pursued By Happiness (Steppenwolf).  Mr. Huff is currently developing a cable series for TNT with Academy Award nominated screenwriter/director, Billy Ray.

LE CHANT DES SIRÈNES
By Sylvain Émard
Friday, March 22, 2019 at 7:30pm
Schimmel Center at Pace University

Schimmel Center at Pace University concludes its 2018-19 Dance Series with Le chant des sirènes, the newest solo work from accomplished Canadian dancer and choreographer Sylvain Émard, on Friday, March 22, 2019 at 7:30pm. Tickets start at $29 and can be purchased at SchimmelCenter.org, by phone at 212-346-1715, or by visiting the Schimmel Center Box Office at 3 Spruce Street, Manhattan. Box office hours are Tuesday-Saturday, noon-5pm, and then beginning three hours prior to each performance, through intermission.

With Le chant des sirènes ("Siren Song"), dancer/choreographer Sylvain Émard returns to the stage after a 15-year absence from performing, rediscovering himself as a dancer changed by the passage of time. Now in his early 60s, Émard probes the states of being of a man who wants to believe that all is not lost. Without sacrificing the precision and formality that are the hallmarks of his thirty-year dance career, he approaches this work in a spirit of pleasure and freedom, driven by the idea that the special qualities of mature performers give them their very own rich form of expression.

March 16 & 17, 2019 @11AM
*March 16, 2019 @12:15PM Family Puppetry Workshop
BAM Fisher

Olive & Pearl, for ages 2-5 and their families, tells the story of a young girl, Olive, who is raised by her Granny, Pearl. Centered on thematic elements of home, and what a home means, young audiences are invited into a cozy and gentle world, rich with sensory experiences. The story follows Olive throughout her day, as she is affectionately taken care of by her grandmother. Granny Pearl builds fires, warms tea, makes meals, has a comforting lap to tell stories on and safe arms to rock Olive to sleep. Throughout their day the characters play, go on an imaginary journey to the moon, sing songs, and dance. Puppets, who reinforce the imagery of home, create additional characters; there is a mouse in its hole, and a fish in its water bowl and fairies in their fairy tree. Home is not only the structure of one’s house, but the place one longs for to feel safety, love and warmth.  Magical, visual, stimulating, and oftentimes funny, Olive & Pearl is performed through beautiful puppetry, dance and an original live music score inspired by melodies of Bluegrass, Irish Fiddle, and traditional lullabies. A first introduction into live theatre, Olive & Pearl is both a mirror and a window, for the very young child, into what is the meaning of home. Perfect for the Family!
 
In addition to our performances, we will be offering Relaxed Performance options for audiences seeking a less restrictive performance environment, including those with sensory processing conditions, Autism, and learning or intellectual disabilities.

The company returns to Danspace Project for their fifth season with:
Richard Alston's The Seasons, one of the Best Dance Picks of 2018 by The New York Times. A serene and limpid meditation on the cycle of a year in Nature, the music has an extraordinary clarity with images of Quiescence (Winter), Creation (Spring), Preservation (Summer) and, intriguingly, Destruction (Fall), which all come from Indian philosophical thought; Matthew Nash's 1983 take on The Elements of Style, from Strunk and White's classic guide to writing;Merce Cunningham's Scramble (1967) the first piece whose designer, Frank Stella, was selected by Jasper Johns after his appointment as artistic advisor of the Cunningham Co. It consists of eighteen sections whose order could be changed, or omitted. The music by Toshi Ichiyanagi (Activities for Orchestra) is scored for western instruments. NYTB's Scramble is part of the Merce Cunningham Centennial Celebration.

NYTB REP performances are made possible, in part, through the Danspace Project's Community ACCESS Series that provides subsidized off-season rental opportunities for Danspace Project community members

Le Jardin Qui Rit is a surrealistic and allegorical homage to creation, the beginning of all things, and is inspired by the middle panel of the iconic triptych "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch. The Czech-born Týnek says, "I am not seeking to recreate the mad world of freely cavorting humans and beasts in the painting, but rather create a theatrical world of its own making, rules and dramas.

Jiva Dance presents the World Premiere of The Four Horsemen on March 7 & 8, 2019 at 8pm and March 10, 2019 at 4pm at Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie St, New York, NY 10002. There will be a post-show talk-back on March 8 with the choreographers Maya Kulkarni and Sonali Skandan, moderated by NYC Indian classical dance veteran and curator Rajika Puri. 

The Four Horsemen is an innovative Indian Classical dance production, exploring symbolism from the story of the Apocalypse through Indian classical dance, music, and Sanskrit poetry. The work centers around four vignettes of life and death through four female protagonists who stand for universal human experience. The stories - a woman shackled to the life of a courtesan (conquest), a woman reminiscing the night she spent with her lover who is at war (war), a mother searching for nourishment for her child in the midst a sandstorm (famine), and finally a woman at the end of her life recalling memories that span youthful joy to hardship and loss (death) - are touchingly timely. The new work challenges the notion of Indian classical dance content and technique and moves beyond the traditional to incorporate a cross-cultural analysis of female experience.

Tickets are General - $28 (Early Bird Until Feb 14) / $30 Advance / $35 Door Students and Seniors  ($25 Early Bird Until Feb 14) / $28 Advance / $30 Door and can be purchased at

February 5 at 4pm & 7:30pm


Dir. Jacques Becker, 1954, 92 min, DCP
With Fernandel, Samia Gamal, Dieter Borsche
In French and Arabic with English subtitles

This outlier in Becker’s filmography finds legendary French comedian Fernandel leading a dazzling adaptation of the tale of Ali Baba, with eye-popping colors, belly-dancing numbers, and displaced Marseille accents of a largely Provençal cast. Known for his sophisticated Parisian comedies and atmospheric urban noirs, Becker’s turn to The Arabian Nights for inspiration with the constantly mugging Fernandel as its leading man was unexpected in the least, but the director embraced the challenge with brilliance, exquisitely choreographing an explosion of color and movement.

Drum Love is a classic love story, rites of passage, and coming of age tale complete with a tragic heroine, suitors, and concerned family. The work follows the time-honored format of African ballets expertly produced by the touring national companies of West African countries.

Conceived, choreographed, and directed by Artistic Director Yao Ababio, Drum Love tells the story of a young girl who falls for three artists of The Big City. She ignores warnings to avoid them and becomes involved with all three. Eventually she gets pregnant, is rejected, and realizes that she has created a situation that will bring shame to her family. In the end, she embraces the support of her family and friends. Incorporating dance, song, and live music, the completed work will engage audiences with the excitement and vigor of African dance while presenting an urban twist on traditional themes. The piece will be performed by seven dancers, five drummers, and a traditional Malian band.

Front Room Gallery presents:
Stephen Mallon
PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES 
January 9th-February 24, 2019
Thurs–Sun 1-6 & by appointment
Front Room Gallery

On the tenth anniversary of the famous “Miracle on the Hudson” landing by “Sully” Sullenberger, Front Room Gallery will feature a selection of Stephen Mallon’s photographs of the airplane Flight 1549 from his series “Brace for Impact.” Front Room will also feature works from Mallon’s well-known series “Next Stop Atlantic,” which follows the reefing of NYC subway cars as they are brought from the Bronx to offshore locations as far south as Georgia and eventually dropped into the ocean to become artificial reefs. Additionally, “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” will also feature dramatic new works by Mallon of cars in an industrial scrapyard in the Midwest as they go to their final destination, that great parking lot in the sky.

We all remember that bitterly cold day in January 2009 when a flock of Canada geese intersected the flight path of an Airbus A320 leaving La Guardia Airport and forced the most successful (and famous) plane “ditching” in history. It wasn’t just a “miracle”: it was a phenomenon. Four months earlier the economy itself had crashed, and the housing market was in a tailspin; it seemed like the world was coming to an end. Sullenberger was the hero we all needed: he saved 155 souls, right there in the Hudson river, with the world watching live. The story went on to become the subject of movies, books, and interviews on talk shows on all networks. Stephen Mallon’s photographs capture another side of this story, what happened afterward. In Mallon’s epic photograph “Wing,” the plane’s fuselage is completely submerged, save for a lone wing jutting out of the ice-covered water just piercing the horizon line, which is lined with the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Colgate clock and industrial smoke from New Jersey. It is a scene that is so apocalyptic feeling that it would be right at home in “The Planet of the Apes.” In another photo a diver emerges from beneath boulder-sized sheets of ice beside the sunken plane wearing a heated wetsuit that seems more appropriate for outer space than the Hudson river. As the tenth anniversary of the event rolls around, these photographs remain gripping, and demand another look.

Living Catalogue is visual installation and live performance that asks how much dance can be contained in a gallery setting.

These recent performances include Laura's use of large pieces of paper as a medium to express her interest in the intersection of the materiality of the body and the physical world. Laura's tactile environments are dynamic and, like the dancers, are in constant flux. These three pieces track Laura’s recent works with paper, showing the unfolding of large-scale origami, moving paintings, or demolition of sculptural pieces.

Performed by Janessa Clark, Darrin Wright, Jennifer Sydor, and Laura Peterson

Still, it’s a veritable winter wonderland: After your time on the ice, warm up at spacious rinkside foodhall the Lodge. If you want to practice your lutzes and axels with ample spinning room, try visiting during off-peak hours.

NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimò Presents
“Cantiere Dante”
Friday, 14 December 2018 at 6:30PM
NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimò
22 W 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

Teatro delle Albe and Dante Alighieri: a conversational retrospective amongst
Ermanna Montanari, Marco Martinelli, Dante scholar Alison Cornish (NYU) and Federico Rampini (La Repubblica)

The conversation will continue with US chief correspondent for La Repubblica Federico Rampini, at New York based Italian cultural hub Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimò on December 14.

In 2017 Teatro delle Albe started to follow an artistic path whose objective was to transfer the Italian masterpiece which triggered the start of the Italian language and literature - Divina Commedia - on stage. “Some had already tried to do that: we believe that the process does not have to do with the idea of matching Dante’s cantos with scenery, but rather to dig out its intimate theatrical nature. The word “teatron”, which means vision, embraces what the author defines as an “enchanting vision” (mirabile visione), hence “enchanting theatre”, able to include its focus on the whole spectrum of humanity in its multiple experience, from the obscene annoyance of Inferno (Hell) to the melancholic colour change of Purgatorio, to its rise to a level where vision and words turn themselves into an ineffable Paradise”.
During “Cantiere Dante” Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari will share with the audience the experience of “Inferno”, performed in Ravenna with the participatory support of its citizens, and “Divina Commedia”, the experimental piece directed by Marco Montanari performed by 140 children and teenagers in Kibera, in one of Africa’s largest slums on the outskirts of Nairobi. Ermanna Montanari will read canto XXXIII from Dante’s Divina Commedia and the poem Ahi serva Italia, from “fedeli d’Amore”.

Allison Cornish will introduce the canto XXXIII from Dante’s Divina Commedia. 
Federico Rampini will stress the ‘unfortunate' effectiveness of Dante’s work in our times.

(A Practical Roundtable)
Wednesday, December 12
6:30pm Discussion + 3:00pm Workshop + 5:30pm Book Talk

What is devised theater? This form, which confounds traditional notions of theatermaking, is itself confounding. It has come to mean many different (and sometimes conflicting) things, depending on the context. Join our working group discussion, featuring producing institutions, artists, legal experts, and scholars, as we attempt to create a comprehensive definition for the “devised theater.” What happens when the collaboration expands beyond traditional definitions? How is the work curated, produced, presented, compensated and credited?

Performing Knowledge:
A Day of Lecture Performances
Monday, December 10 3:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Segal Theatre | The Graduate Center, CUNY | 365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street 

Like theatres, lecture halls and classrooms rehearse specific conventions to organize performance and spectatorship, teaching and learning. Like other conventions, the dramaturgy of the lecture is a product of overlapping factors and traditions. But in what new ways can knowledge be pursued, conceived and presented? 

Performing Knowledge gathers prominent scholars and graduate students from various programs at the Graduate Center to experiment with new ways of doing learning. Departing from a performative, embodied and experienced-based understanding of knowledge, the lecture-performances all introduce ostensibly 'alien' and 'irrelevant' elements into the pedagogical situation. By including the often suppressed elements of doubt, dialogue, sound, movement, alternative research narratives and knowledge-bearing bodies, the performing scholars develop novel dramaturgies of knowledge. Their alternative academic practices respond to Wendy Brown's call to recover “what is ineffably moving, sublime, or meaningful in the humanities" by pointing towards the immense variety of forms that academic production can take as it renegotiates its generic assumptions.

Performing Lecturers include Meg Araneo, Jon McKenzie (Perform or Else) and Aneta Stojnic, Polly Thistlethwaite, and Graduate Students from the CUNY Graduate Center.

Performing Knowledge is an initiative by Amir Farjoun co-produced with Mara Valderrama, Ph.D. Students at the Theatre and Performance at the Graduate Center CUNY. In collaboration with the Segal Center, with additional support by the DSC.

December 7-8, 2018 at 8:00pm

Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, returns to the Apollo stage with its celebrated CARMEN.maquia by Gustavo Ramírez Sansanoon Friday and Saturday, December 7 and 8, 2018 at 8:00pm. Ballet Hispánico is sponsored by GOYA, which has sponsored the company since 1977.

A Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet's beloved classic, the physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco. Originally created for the Luna Negra Dance Theater of Chicago, CARMEN.maquia premiered in New York at the Apollo in 2014, the first full-length narrative dance work in Ballet Hispánico's nearly 50-year history.
 
"In 2012, the Spanish choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano gave Bizet's 'Carmen' a dramatic and stylish contemporary dance makeover... Forget that flaming red dress - this version of the Gypsy seducer's tragic tale takes place in a bleak, modernist black-and-white world, where contemporary ballet flirts with flamenco and paso doble."
- Brian Schaefer, The New York Times

Within Eldridge Street’s vibrant historic sanctuary, menorahs from 17th-century Italy and 19th-century North Africa will be displayed alongside those from Colonial America and modernday Israel, India, Brazil, Poland, the Netherlands, and more.

Shiva for Anne Frank 
Thursday, November 29th at 7:30pm
Friday, November 30th at 7:30pm
The People's Improv Theater Mainstage (Striker) 

Comedian, storyteller and writer Rachel McKay Steele is excited to announce her solo show, Shiva for Anne Frank, which is a tribute to her own cultural identity as well as an honorarium to Anne Frank delivered through a comedic lens. The show is directed by Lauren Ann Brickman and will premiere at The Peoples Improv Theater this November.

Rachel’s solo show celebrates Jewish identity, girlhood, community mourning, life, and begs the question of whether or not one Jewish comedian can and should relate herself to Anne Frank. Although Anne Frank is one of the most famous and recognizable young women in the world, her legacy is often infantilized or simplified so she can remain a saintly beacon from one of humanity’s darkest chapters. For two nights in November, Rachel invites you to laugh, cry, celebrate and mourn Anne Frank as filtered through her own hilarious experiences of getting a nose job, rehashing her Bat Mitzvah, and sharing her favorite story of a one night stand (with a German). To keep the show socially conscious and aware, Rachel is consistently updating the piece to stay up to date with current news and relevant events. The entire team behind Shiva for Anne Frank is female and three of the four women are Jewish.

Tickets are $8 (no drink minimum).

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance
The World Premiere of
reeling -> healing
Fall 2018 Season at Triskelion Arts
November 29 - December 1, 2018 at 8pm
Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance presents the World Premiere of reeling -> healing at Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater,106 Calyer Street, (entrance on Banker St,) Brooklyn, NY 11222, from November 29 - December 1, 2018 at 8pm.

reeling -> healing is an exploration of feelings of frustration and helplessness that can occur as a result of the constant barrage of bad news and hatred that reaches our country. This two-part work discusses how audiences deal with these emotions to find solace while taking action. Original music by Kevin Keller adds to a sense of urgency and the need for community, working in tandem with the choreography to immerse the audience in a fully formed world. Performers and audience connect via The Emotional Architecture of a Bridge, an original concept drawn and created by Teresa Fellion, that is uncovered in the piece via set elements and audience interaction with text. Furthering thoughts of togetherness, which has been an overarching theme in all past BodyStories pieces, reeling -> healing exposes the more vulnerable sides of ourselves through dance.

Tickets are $18 in advance ($22 at the door) and are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/triskelion-arts-presents-bodystories-teresa-fellion-dance-tickets-48739662643.

HANS ULRICH OBRIST
and
ARI MARCOPOULOS
for the launch and signing of
The Athens Dialogues
introduced by
FREDERIC TUTEN
Monday, November 26 @ 7PM
Karma Bookstore

Hans Ulrich Obrist often quotes the great art historian Erwin Panofsky, who once famously said that "the future is built from fragments of the past." How these fragments accumulate is often a matter of historical inquiry as well as shared personal experiences. Here, 12 artists and an architect—Danai Anesiadou, James Bridle, Elizabeth Diller, Apostolos Georgiou, Isaac Julien, Jeff Koons, Ranjana Leyendecker, Charles Ray, Shuddhabrata Sengupta (Raqs Media Collective), Christiana Soulou, Hito Steyerl and Adrián Villar Rojas—engage in conversation with Obrist, challenging history’s defining notions and offering diverse accounts of how the present is imagined in relation to the past. One of the conversations takes the form of a photographic essay by Ari Marcopoulos examining Athens, the ancient city and its contemporary life. The Athens Dialogues reveals how antiquity is a toolbox for shaping not only artistic and research practices, but present-day realities and the futures to come.

The Apollo Theater Presents
Hip-Hop Mega Group The Diplomats
Live at the Apollo
One Night Only
Nov. 23 at 8 p.m.
The Apollo Theater   

The Apollo Theater is proud to present a special one night only concert featuring the return of hip-hop mega group and Harlem's own The Diplomats, popularly nown as Dipset as they reunite to launch a new album. The special event will take place on November 23 at 8 p.m.

Artists Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freeky Zekey-collectively known as The Diplomats formed in 1997 in Harlem, NY. Following the success of Cam'ron's solo album S.D.E., the group released what is now considered a classic album, Diplomatic Immunity in 2003. Pioneers in music distribution, known for their fashion forwardness and their unique way of approaching lyrics, the group went on to release more than 50 songs that cemented their place in hip-hop history. "They were a true grassroots movement, perhaps the last New York has seen. The crew's success was built on a combination of mixtape grind, hit singles, street DVDs, and a unique aesthetic vision. Coming up at a time when Atlanta was ascendant, the crew managed to keep New York City a hub of street rap into the new decade."- Complex.  

"We are committed to celebrating the legacy of Black music and its effect on popular culture. Dipset is a perfect example of a group that started here in Harlem and made an impact on music that lasted decades," said Kamilah Forbes, Apollo Theater's Executive Producer. 

TICKET INFO
Tickets for The Diplomat are available at the Apollo Theater Box Office: (212) 531-5305, 253 West 125th Street, and Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com. Tickets are on sale now.

Paul Jacobsen | Material Ethereal
November 18  - December 21, 2018
Opening Reception: 
Sunday, November 18, 6-8pm
102 Forsyth Street, New York, NY 10002

signs and symbols is pleased to present Material Ethereal, an exhibition of new work by artist Paul Jacobsen. Challenging the idiom of the photograph with painterly form, Jacobsen’s new body of work questions authorship/viewership/reproduction as he combines painterly technique with the photographic medium to find poetry and order in the otherwise mundane, the common tools. 

paul jacobsen was born in Denver, Colorado in 1976. He grew up in a small mountain town in Colorado, raised by a family of artists. Drawing on his youth in the rural American West, Jacobsen considers the intersection of nature and technology in a multimedia body of work that references intimate personal experiences, countercultural rituals, and the aesthetics of Americana. In lush, somewhat satirical still lives and landscapes that employ traditional painting styles and photographic techniques, Jacobsen offers a bucolic, sublime escape from contemporary consumerism, industry, and innovation. Foregoing a formal art degree, Jacobsen studied in Florence at Lorenzo De Medici Instituto de Arte and was head painter in the studios of Jeff Koons and Rudolf Stingel. His works have been exhibited at MASS MoCA and the Aspen Art Museum, among other institutions. Jacobsen lives and works upstate in Germantown, New York, and Rico, Colorado.

As part of a generation of artists growing up and performing during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, Yin Mei exposes in her works how personal memories, tattooed images of rage, harmony, solemnity and quiet silence exude an ethereal and illusory mood.

Starting at 6:30pm, the evening will include an installation performance with Yin Mei, pianist Bill Buchman, and dancers Huiwang Zhang and Guanglei Hui, followed by an artist talk by Yin Mei and a panel with, Marvin Carlson, Peter Eckersall, Yong Fei, Kaiqi Hu, Zhenlin Li and more TBC.

The work, a site-specific commission made in and for the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda of the Guggenheim which the New York Times hailed as a "revelatory dance experience," features percussive dance and transforms the iconic space into a giant musical instrument. After its premiere in 2017, Dance Magazine called the work "genius... funny yet breathtaking, endlessly entertaining but compositionally brilliant," and the work was selected as a Best of Dance by the New York Times for 2017. The piece is 40 minutes long, highly engaging, and immersive, making use of the architecture and acoustics of the rotunda through cross-genre percussive movement.

EVOLUTION of RESOLUTION
Frank Bradfield
Opening Reception: Tuesday, October 30, 6-8pm
Ivy Brown Gallery

Frank Bradfield’s first solo art show in New York City is an exploration into the evolution of man. Evolution is nature’s answer for survival. Evolution is nature’s way of resolution. Resolution is sudden and born of human intervention. The results of human intervention and the possibilities of what might evolve within species is the central theme that Mr. Bradfield has captured in his works. As Marty Stouffer, renowned wildlife spokesperson said, “Nature can turn a songbird into a hunter”.
 
Evolution is happening all around the world today. Due to human intervention, species of all populations have migrated out of their natural habitats into new environments and adaptations have occurred as a result.  African Rock and Burmese pythons are now found thriving in the Florida Everglades. European wild hogs and African warthogs now dominate areas of Texas.  As the earth continues to be disrupted, indigenous creatures must adapt to their new surroundings or perish.
 
“Evolution is very hard not to notice; the thought of scales having evolved into feathers on the legs of a turkey excites me, consequently can you imagine a 20 foot T-Rex with feathers?” – Frank Bradfield

Born out of political strife, the piece is designed to help people with vastly different experiences reconnect as human beings through dance. As spectators become a part of the performance, notions of the individual, the group, the past and the future will be tested and explored.

NEWFEST ANNOUNCES OPENING NIGHT FILM “1985”
The Moving Black-And-White Drama To Open The Fest On October 24th
Newfest Runs October 24th - 30th

For more information newfest.org.

This Year Marks The 30th Anniversary Of  New York’s LGBT Festival, running October 24th - 30th

NewFest has announced its Opening Night film to be Yen Tan's powerful AIDS drama "1985" on Wednesday, October 24th. This year will mark the highly significant 30th anniversary of NewFest, one of the world’s most venerable and respected LGBT festivals. "1985" joins a history of notable NewFest Opening Night Films, including "Go Fish" (1994), "High Art" (1998), "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" (2001), "But I'm a Cheerleader" (2000), and "We Were Here" (2011). The film is a return to NewFest for Tan, whose previous films “Ciao” (2008) and “Pit Stop” (2013) have screened at the fest in the past.

Written and directed by Yen Tan, “1985” follows Adrian (Cory Michael Smith, "Gotham"), a closeted advertising executive who, after having been gone for three years, returns to his Texas hometown for the holidays during the first wave of the AIDS crisis. Burdened with an unspeakable tragedy in New York City, Adrian looks to reconnect with his preteen brother Andrew (Aidan Langford) while navigating his relationship with religious parents Eileen (Academy Award Nominee Virginia Madsen) and Dale (Golden Globe Award Winner Michael Chiklis). When he reaches out to his estranged childhood friend Carly (Jamie Chung, "The Gifted"), their unresolved issues force Adrian to confront an uncertain future that will significantly alter the lives of those around him.

Shot on black-and-white super 16mm film, "1985" takes a unique look at a pivotal moment in American history through the prism of empathy, love and family.

The festival will announce its full lineup for its 30th edition on September 21st. The festival runs October 24th - 30th.
Ticket redemption for Festival Passholders begins at Sept. 21st. There will be a Member Pre-Sale for tickets on Sept. 25th. Tickets go on sale to public on Sept. 28th. For more information or to become a member, go to newfest.org.

The Segal Center is honored to welcome the notorious Norwegian/German theatre duo Vegard Vinge and Ida Müller in their first visit to the U.S. Throughout the last decade, Vinge and Müller have managed to scandalize European audiences through gothic somberness and seemingly naïve aesthetics. They often indulge in transgressive improvisation, body fluids, violence, masks, and excessive make-up to create a new and ironically monstrous Total-Work-of-Art.

Evening event will feature Fiction/Fetish, an introduction by Andrew Friedman, followed by a discussion with Vegard Vinge & Ida Müller moderated by Frank Hentschker.

CLASSICS OF FRENCH CINEMA WITH OLIVIER BARROT
Building on last spring’s inaugural lineup, Classics of French Cinema presents a pair of films that showcase the richness of French filmmaking: Jean-Pierre Melville’s L’Armée des ombres (Army of Shadows) (1969), a belatedly recognized masterpiece about the French Resistance on September 25; and Jacques Tati’s Mon Oncle (1958), winner of that year’s Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, on December 11.

Built in 1848, and converted to a foundry at the turn of the century, Aich will host this new, revamped production directed by Linda Wise, a long time master, and collaborator of the company. "Linda Wise has definitely lived up to our expectation as Andressa and I caught her up to our 3-year process of researching and developing this production" said Debora Balardini, Executive Director of Group .BR and one of the performers in the piece. This immersive theatrical experience integrates visual arts, film, music, and performance art.

FJK DANCE RETURNS TO
NYC FOR FIFTH ANNIVERSARY SEASON
FADI J KHOURY’S “UNTOLD” TO PREMIERE
SEPT. 13 @ 7PM AND SEPT. 15 @ 7:30PM
JOHN JAY COLLEGE

PLUS Guest Artist Collaborations
With Choreographers Gary Pierce and Debbie Roshe

Fadi J. Khoury’s FJK Dance will return to NYC for the company’s FIFTH ANNIVERSARY SEASON with three premieres plus repertory on Thursday, September 13 (7pm) and Saturday, September 15 (7:30pm). Performances are part of the CUNY Dance Initiative and will take place at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 524 West 59th Street. Tickets are $25-$45 ($10 students), and available via www.fjkdance.com.

The program features the premiere of Fadi Khoury’s new work, “UnTold.” The multimedia performance installation, layering ancient Middle Eastern aesthetics with contemporary ballet and ballroom movement, meets at the intersection of visual art and contemporary dance. The work was conceived in two parts: the audience will first walk through sculptures and paintings in the theater lobby inspired by pre-Islamic Arab poetry, the Al Mu’alaqat (????????) (a set of seven poems), followed by a performance in which the choreography will intertwine with the shape of the Arabic calligraphy. “Untold” hopes to shed light on the hidden beauty of Middle Eastern culture, at a time when stereotypes govern Western perceptions of the region.

Taking place weekly through September 1, Warm Up celebrates a wide range of artists: emerging and established, local and global, and across genres. With six dates remaining in the Warm Up season, MoMA PS1 announces new additions to the lineup of more than 75 artists. 

Continuing our celebration of the Republic Pictures library, which is currently being restored and returned to wide distribution by Paramount, here are 16 more rarely seen titles, each handpicked by Martin Scorsese.

“From the ’30s through the ’50s, the different studio logos at the head of every picture carried their own associations and expectations,” said Scorsese. “And for me, the name Republic over the eagle on the mountain peak meant something special. Republic Pictures was what was known as a ‘poverty row’ studio, but what their pictures lacked in resources and prestige they made up for in inventiveness, surprise, and, in certain cases, true innovation. Among the many ‘B’ pictures produced at Republic in the studio’s heyday, there are so many titles that have been overlooked or forgotten; waiting for decades to be seen again. I’m truly excited that MoMA will be presenting these films, some in newly restored versions courtesy of Paramount Pictures and The Film Foundation. For two weeks in August, you need to go to MoMA. I can promise you that you have some discoveries in store.”

In this year’s program, bronzed idols and guly felines and just about everything else fall to pieces. Perhaps they’ve all got the end-of-summer blues. Let’s not spend any time bemoaning past mistakes or missed opportunities, it’s not time for “should haves” or “would haves.” It’s time for some late-summer, life lessons, like How to Live with Regret, how to woo your babysitter, and what not to do when your friend is trapped in quicksand. The summer may be coming to a close, but without endings there would be no new beginnings.

Direct Action is the practice of organizing each other to live as though we were already free. Together we'll build a brave space to practice tactics for civil disobedience, strategies for community defense, and ways to use our bodies to build power. This Brujas-led training is designed for all y'all wanting to take action to #AbolishICE.

Plant Dye Workshop
Expanding Migration
6:30pm - 8:00pm | Courtyard
Plants and people have always moved freely. In nature the only borders are mountains or bodies of water, and even then people, plants and animals have found ways of spreading themselves. There is a similarity in the language that is presently used to describe unwanted plants and people for example, invasive, alien, "taking over," etc. The actions taken to control both often have similar measures, whether it be spending millions of dollars on pesticides, building walls, or uprooting communities. In this plant dye workshop Herban Cura will share on native and non native plants of the North east and Central America in order to bridge a conversation through color of what is currently happening on the border. Through this hands on workshops participants will leave knowing the basics of plant dyes and have the opportunity to create a collaborative prayer flag that will then be sent to the border as an ongoing art piece.


Open Mic
Open Mic hosted by BZA & Brujas
7:30pm - 8:00pm | El Café
BZA and Brujas lead an open mic session for y'all to share your pensamientos and feelings with the comunidad. Message Brujas at their Instagram account (@brujas) for more info and to sign up.

INSITU Site-Specific Dance Festival 2018
August 4 & 5
The Western Queens Waterfront

20 choreographers from NYC and beyond create original works
inspired by natural and urban landscapes

INSITU Site-Specific Dance Festival, a New York Times Top Pick of "24 Outdoor Performances to See in the Summer in NYC" in 2017, is a unique event presented in four public parks along the East River waterfront in Queens. For two days in August, neighborhood residents and visitors are invited to discover LIC through cutting edge site-specific contemporary and urban dance.

Now in its second year, INSITU 2018 will transforms the Western Queens waterfront into one giant stage on August 4 & 5 from 1 pm to 8pm daily. Twenty new commissioned works by regional, national and international choreographers selected from over 200 applications will be presented in Hunters Point South Park, Gantry Plaza State Park, Queensbridge Park and Socrates Sculpture Park, including new site-specifics works by Douglas Dunn (NYC), Chantal Caron/Fleuve Espace danse (Canada), Sarah Elgart/Angry Elbow (Los Angeles) and Alice Gosti (Seattle). One hundred and sixty performances representing 32 hours of dance will be organized into 4 performance rounds per park per day, each lasting approximately 90 minutes and all starting at the same time in each park at 1 PM, 3 PM, 5 PM and 7 PM. Additionally, INSITU 2018 will offer audiences the opportunity to interact directly with several choreographers from last year's festival in a 20-minute workshop presented after the first three performance rounds. The four choreographers will be announced in May.

Another important element of INSITU 2018 will be the Community Dance Workshop, hosted by Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement and facilitated by a socially engaged choreographer over four weeks in June, culminating with a performance at the Festival in August.
 
INSITU is free and open to the public, offering an exciting way to experience dance in unusual public spaces. Inspired by natural and urban landscapes of the public parks, the diverse line-up of 20 contemporary and urban dance companies will maneuver through playgrounds, partner with benches, appear in hidden corners and dance on piers, staircases and shorelines. Other sites within the parks include a beach, historic railway ties, piers, promenades, lounge chairs, thicket of trees, a stone platform, and more. Audiences will be led through continuous dance performances several times throughout the day, setting up a chain of dynamic and immersive performances throughout the four parks.

Jonathan Wilson
Lucy Dacus 
Sunday, July 29, 2018 at 7:30 pm
Damrosch Park 
 
With his new album, the psych-rock fantasia Rare Birds, Jonathan Wilson has confirmed his status as a solo artist of big ideas and the deep talent to execute them. When not making his own music, he’s producing Father John Misty, Dawes, and many others; playing guitar in Roger Waters’s band; and hosting legendary jam sessions at his Fivestar Studio in Los Angeles. Wilson shares the stage tonight with another breakout indie artist, Lucy Dacus. A striking voice in the timeless genre of guitar-based songwriting, the Virginia native’s sophomore album Historian was just released on Matador Records to universal acclaim.
 
“An utterly original and irreverent thinker who's evolving with blinding speed.”
– NPR on Jonathan Wilson

“A warm, sonorous voice, the kind of voice that rings out like a bugle over dialed-up amps, the kind of voice that can lull you into feeling safe even when she’s singing about heartbreak, abjection, and death.”
– Pitchfork on Lucy Dacus

The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s
CinéSalon Series
Burning Bright: New French Filmmakers
Custody (Jusqu’ à la garde)
Tuesday, July 24 at 4 & 7:30pm
Dir. by Xavier Legrand, 2018.
DCP. 93 min. Color.
With Léa Drucker, Denis Ménochet, Thomas Gioria
In French with English subtitles
FIAF


The French Institute Alliance Française concludes its look at France’s new generation of auteurs in its CinéSalon series Burning Bright: New French Filmmakers with screenings of four award-winning films, showcasing new voices of French cinema.

A broken marriage leads to a bitter custody battle with a son at the center of the fight in this domestic thriller. This debut film from Xavier Legrand, who cited Kramer vs. Kramer, The Shining, and The Night of the Hunter as inspirations, keeps audiences guessing and leaves them with their hearts in their throats. A companion piece to his Academy Award®-nominated short film Just Before Losing Everything, the film won Legrand the Silver Lion for Best Director at the Venice Film Festival and was a New York Times Critic’s Pick.

Miriam and Antoine Besson are divorcing, and Miriam is seeking sole custody of their son Julien to protect him from a father she claims is violent. Antoine pleads his case as a scorned dad whose children have been turned against him by their vindictive mother. Unsure who is telling the truth, the appointed judge rules in favor of joint custody. A hostage to the escalating conflict between his parents, Julien is pushed to the edge to prevent the worst from happening.

Final Performances of Landmark Production by Legendary Director Yukio Ninagawa;
Revival of Original 1980 Staging, the Last Overseen by Ninagawa Before his Death in 2016,
to be Retired following Mostly Mozart Festival Engagement 

The 1980 premiere of Yukio Ninagawa’s Japanese-language production of Macbeth was a watershed moment in global theater. Transposing Shakespeare’s tragedy from medieval Scotland to feudal Japan, Ninagawa created a breathtaking world filled with samurai, kabuki witches, a highly expressive cherry tree, and a musical score of Buddhist chant and western classical music.

This revival—the last production overseen by the legendary director before his death in 2016—stars two of Japan’s most acclaimed actors, Masachika Ichimura in the title role and Yuko Tanaka as Lady Macbeth. The four Mostly Mozart Festival performances will be the work’s final, before it is retired.

Additional details on NINAGAWA Macbeth follow below. Music and dance presentations round out the Mostly Mozart Festival’s offerings later this month and into August. The full festival lineup, including a film screening and discussions with artists and outside experts that delve further into the season’s themes, is available at MosltyMozartFestival.org.

Founded in 1945, the beloved summer concert series brings thousands of music lovers to its bucolic Westchester setting to hear world-renowned artists and ensembles. To kick off the season on June 16, OSL is joined by award-winning singer-actress Audra McDonald for a program of Broadway standards and more-recent works, led by music director Andy Einhorn. On June 30, making his OSL and Caramoor debut, Ludovic Morlot leads a program of works by Tchaikovsky and Smetana, featuring violinist Benjamin Beilman and the New York premiere of Matthew Aucoin's Evidence. And closing out the 2018 Caramoor season on July 29, Bernard Labadie conducts a program of works by Mozart and Handel with mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, one of today's leading interpreters of this repertoire. Mozart's Symphony No. 36 in C, "Linz" highlights the program.

Effervescent singer-actor Audra McDonald - record-breaking winner of six Tony Awards, two Grammy Awards, and an Emmy Award - gets Caramoor's 73rd season off to a dazzling start sharing opening night with Caramoor orchestra-in-residence Orchestra of St. Luke's. The concert will feature standards from the American Songbook, Broadway tunes, and newer pieces. McDonald's long-time pianist and music director, Andy Einhorn, currently music supervisor and music director for the Broadway revival of Hello Dolly!, directs what is sure to be a thrilling evening.

French Conductor Ludovic Morlot makes his OSL and Caramoor debuts with this concert. He has been Music Director of the Seattle Symphony since 2011, leading the orchestra in two Grammy Award-winning performances. The New York Times wrote of their 2014 Carnegie Hall appearance, "The performance Mr. Morlot coaxed from his players was rich with shimmering colors and tremulous energy." Highlighting the evening is the New York premiere of Matthew Aucoin's Evidence. Aucoin, who is Artist in Residence at Los Angeles Opera, composed the dramatic oratorio The Orphic Moment that OSL performed as part of an innovative production with MasterVoices May 6 and 7 at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rose Theater. The "poised and monstrously talented" (Philadelphia Inquirer) young violinist Benjamin Beilman will perform the tuneful and virtuosic Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D. Rounding out the program are the playful Dance of the Comedians, from Smetana's The Bartered Bride and Tchaikovsky's lushly romantic Romeo & Juliet Fantasy Overture.
