Panopticon, a duet performed by Alexandra Albrecht and Rebecca Warner, takes inspiration from Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish, Panopticism.

Jeffrey Zeigler is one of the most versatile cellists of our time. He has commissioned dozens of works, and is admired as a potent collaborator and unique improviser. Described as “fiery”, and a player who performs “with unforced simplicity and beauty of tone” by the New York Times, he has recently given several notable premiers by Bryce Dessner, Derek Charke, John King, Paola Prestini, JG Thirlwell, Shara Worden and John Zorn. Recent collaborations include Andy Akiho, Laurie Anderson, Philip Glass, Hauschka, Vijay Iyer, Glenn Kotche, Kimmo Pohjonen, Foday Musa Suso, Tanya Tagaq and Roomful of Teeth. Praised for his “excellent” and “precisely attuned” performances by the New York Times, percussionist Ian David Rosenbaum has developed a musical breadth far beyond his years. He made his Kennedy Center debut in 2009 and later that year garnered a special prize created for him at the Salzburg International Marimba Competition.    New York City, NY; NYC

Dance Performance |
This is Achugar’s continuing search for another kind of theater: one that connects us to our central desire to move and to the primal and basic, but profound desire to dance to and with music. As in all of Achugar’s works, this piece is concerned with the post-colonial world – searching for an undoing of current power structures from the inside out. It sets free a new “post-civilized” self that resists Western assumptions of beauty and order. It is also a love letter to New York house music through a long-form performance communion ritual, where the audience is moved from apathy to empathy by sharing the music and space with the performers and where they get to choose how to view or interact with the piece whether its sitting still, walking around, dancing or coming and going as they please.    New York City, NY; NYC

Hassabi’s performance will act as an informal preview for the completed workSTAGED, which will premiere at The Kitchen in October 2016 as part of the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival. Hassabi presents a new composition for four dancers, Simon Courchel, Hristoula Harakas, Molly Lieber, and Oisín Monaghan. The artist imagines the work as four concurrent solo performances, rather than as a single, cohesive composition, and underscores this fragmented presentation by separating the dancers over numerous blocks of the park. Thus, viewers encounter each dancer in sequence, connecting their movements through imagination rather than vision. In this way, the performance is necessarily experienced in motion, as visitors move from one end of the park to the other. Takes place June 28-30.    New York City, NY; NYC

A Ballerina’s Tale - Iconic ballerina Misty Copeland made history when she became the first African-American woman to be named principal dancer of the legendary American Ballet Theater. Get the incredible, behind-the-scenes story of how she overcame a tumultuous upbringing and near career-ending injuries to become one of the most revered dancers of her generation in A Ballerina’s Tale. Jeremy McQueen’s The Black Iris Project - Black artistry has changed lives and has demonstrated its potential to spark social change through its cultural pervasiveness exhibited from the Harlem Renaissance to modern day hip hop. Founded in 2016 by award-winning emerging choreographer, Jeremy McQueen, The Black Iris Project highlights the accomplishments of Black professional ballet dancers, jazz and classical composers, and other creative artists through educational outreach efforts and the public presentation of new works inspired by Black heritage. With recent incidents of violence and police brutality against the Black community documented in the media, it is increasingly important for the Black community to continually be inspired and reminded of its unique spirit and strength. The Black Iris Project has been established to harness the Black community’s inherent creative spirit to encourage and inspire youth of color to pursue art, movement and music as an expressive outlet and a means for collective healing. Jeremy McQueen and company will perform the entire Black Iris ballet. Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s “Black Iris III” painting and set to Felix Mendelssohn’s “Piano Trio No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 66.” This work was originally commissioned by the Joffrey Academy of Dance, and premiered on March 10, 2013 in Chicago.    New York City, NY; NYC

Lecture |
In 1858, Walt Whitman published under a pseudonym a series of articles comprising a book-length manifesto, "Manly Health and Training," which appeared serially in The New York Atlas, on diet, exercise, and the future of American health. The series came out at a critical juncture in US history, and this newly rediscovered series encapsulates many of the great debates that helped define the health sciences, then and now. It also offers a rare glimpse into a "lost" year in the life of Walt Whitman.  Whitman's authorship of the series was uncovered by Zachary Turpin,  a doctoral candidate in English at the University of Houston, and his talk will explore his recovery of the series, and its place in Whitman's life's work. It will be followed by a discussion with Isaac Gewirtz, Curator of the Berg Collection, followed by Q&A with the audience.    New York City, NY; NYC

Tony-winning director Daniel Sullivan returns with one of the Bard’s most rarely produced plays, Troilus and Cressida. Both warriors and lovers play hard to get in this surprisingly modern epic about the hot blood, hot thoughts and hot deeds of the ancient Greeks. In the 7th year of the Trojan War, Troilus, a young prince, pines for the affections of Cressida, a bright young woman who knows how to play it cool. Meanwhile, the heroes of the Iliad – Ajax, Ulysses, Achilles and the kings they serve - debate whether to return the dangerously beautiful captive Helen or continue to fight without end. Nations and lovers alike do battle in this funny, piercing drama about romance and revenge in a world at war.    New York City, NY; NYC
