Slide Lecture |
With Dr. Robert Klitzman, professor of Clinical Psychiatry at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University. This illustrated talk draws on in-depth interviews with individuals confronting Huntington's Disease, breast and ovarian cancer, and Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency to explore a range of issues that arise. These individuals face a series of moral and psychological quandaries -- whether to be tested; whether to disclose their genetic risks to parents, siblings, spouses, offspring, friends, doctors, insurers, employers, and schools; how to view and understand themselves and their genetics; what treatments, if any, to pursue; whether to have children, adopt, screen embryos, or abort; and whether to participate in genetic communities. In the face of these uncertainties, they struggle to understand these tests and probabilities, avoid fatalism, anxiety, despair, and discrimination, and find hope, meaning, and a sense of wholeness.

Screening |
In 1946, upon her return from receiving the Nobel Prize, Gabriela Mistral met New Yorker Doris Dana. Mistral was a poet, educator, and diplomat, revered in her native Chile. Yet plagued by gossip about her sexuality and the devastating loss of her only son, she spent most of her later life outside of Chile, and in her final years, settled with Dana on Long Island, where her companion recorded many of their conversations. Out of these recordings comes Madwomen, which follows the mysterious story of the last years of Mistral’s life, her burgeoning friendship with Dana, and her captivating later work. 72 min. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film’s director.

Concert |
The JACK Quartet electrifies audiences worldwide with "explosive virtuosity" (Boston Globe) and "viscerally exciting performances" (New York Times). David Patrick Stearns (Philadelphia Inquirer) proclaimed their performance as being "among the most stimulating new-music concerts of my experience." The Washington Post commented, "The string quartet may be a 250-year-old contraption, but young, brilliant groups like the JACK Quartet are keeping it thrillingly vital." Alex Ross (New Yorker) hailed their performance of Iannis Xenakis' complete string quartets as being "exceptional" and "beautifully harsh," and Mark Swed (Los Angeles Times) called their sold-out performances of Georg Friedrich Haas' String Quartet No. 3 In iij. Noct. "mind-blowingly good." Throughout 2012-2014, JACK will join legendary pianist Maurizio Pollini as a part of his Perspectives series with performances at the Lucerne Festival (Switzerland), Suntory Hall (Japan), Cité de la Musique (France), Staatsoper Unter den Linden (Germany), and Teatro alla Scala (Italy). Comprising violinists Christopher Otto and Ari Streisfeld, violist John Pickford Richards, and cellist Kevin McFarland, JACK is focused on the commissioning and performance of new works.

Book Discussion |
Libya, 1979. Nine-year-old Suleiman’s days are circumscribed by the narrow rituals of childhood: outings to the ruins surrounding Tripoli, games with friends played under the burning sun, exotic gifts from his father’s constant business trips abroad. But his nights have come to revolve around his mother’s increasingly disturbing bedside stories full of old family bitterness.

Leap — and then look! — into the newest open-improv session. Base Jam lets improv students of all stripes to jump head-first into the wonderful and frightening world of long-form improvisation. Let’s face it: Getting better at improv is about flight hours — the time spent on a stage, in a scene, in front of people — leaping first, and then looking for a place to land. Or to keep flying. Hosted by Gary DeNoia and Keith Huang.
