On the eve of the 106th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, which killed 146 people (123 of whom were young female immigrant workers), various forms of artistic expression - a theatrical performance, a documentary film, a memorial project - keep alive the memory of what happened in 1911 and of its significance for the history of the US labor movement. Art also reminds contemporary audiences of the symbolic and political value of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in generating a discourse about workers' rights and dignity, and about illegal situations of the exploitation of labor in the US and abroad.Program:- Theatrical performance by playwright and actor LuLu LoLo Pascale of an excerpt from her play, Soliloquy for a Seamstress: The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire.- Screening of Costanza Quatriglio's Triangle (2014). This documentary deals with the collapse of a building in Barletta in Apulia in 2011, in which five women were killed: four workers working without a contract in a clothing factory and the owner's daughter. These deaths in the workplace are put into dialogue with those of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire.- The Chair of the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition, Professor Mary Anne Trasciatti, will present the work of the Coalition and the project of a permanent memorial at the site of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. The memorial is designed to engage passers-by both from close up and from farther away by means of steel panels reflecting the sky and the surroundings.

A vibrant new production of the gender-bending, heart-mending comedy Twelfth Night. When a young shipwrecked immigrant named Viola takes a chance on the “wet foot, dry foot” policy of the mid-‘90s and washes up amidst the shore of glitzy Illyria, Florida, she finds herself a stranger in a fabulously strange new land. Thinking her twin brother has drowned, Viola throws herself into a new gig as assistant to Orsino, a wealthy Floridian with a serious case of love sickness for a wealthy lady, Olivia. Having disguised herself as a boy to become Orsino’s right hand man, Viola (now Cesario) is tasked with delivering his adoring valentines. But as Viola woos in her boss’s name, she falls head over spiky heels for the man himself, while Olivia turns her affections to the intriguing young messenger boy, Cesario (also Viola). Set to the rhythms of house, Cuban and ‘90s beats, Saheem Ali directs this colorful comedy about the power of new people and new experiences that throw the world into beautiful disarray, and open hearts and minds to the possibility of love.Continuing its commitment to bringing free Shakespeare to the community and strengthening audience engagement with the arts, The Public Theater will mount its mobile unit again this spring. Now in its seventh year, the Mobile Unit’s free tour celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the mobiler unit bringing Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts.

Throughout the tumultuous years of the mid-20th century, Sylvia Plath's writing provided a voice for women everywhere, striving for equality and understanding. Today the legendary novelist, playwright,  and screenwriter Rose Leiman Goldemberg continues to forge new pathways for women writers into the 21st century. As the Library celebrates the acquisition of the Goldemberg archive, witness two pioneering women writers collaborating across time with a staged reading featuring Kathleen Chalfant of Letters Home, Goldemberg's groundbreaking theatrical adaptation of Plath's personal correspondence, not staged in New York City since 1979.

A vibrant new production of the gender-bending, heart-mending comedy Twelfth Night. When a young shipwrecked immigrant named Viola takes a chance on the “wet foot, dry foot” policy of the mid-‘90s and washes up amidst the shore of glitzy Illyria, Florida, she finds herself a stranger in a fabulously strange new land. Thinking her twin brother has drowned, Viola throws herself into a new gig as assistant to Orsino, a wealthy Floridian with a serious case of love sickness for a wealthy lady, Olivia. Having disguised herself as a boy to become Orsino’s right hand man, Viola (now Cesario) is tasked with delivering his adoring valentines. But as Viola woos in her boss’s name, she falls head over spiky heels for the man himself, while Olivia turns her affections to the intriguing young messenger boy, Cesario (also Viola). Set to the rhythms of house, Cuban and ‘90s beats, Saheem Ali directs this colorful comedy about the power of new people and new experiences that throw the world into beautiful disarray, and open hearts and minds to the possibility of love.Continuing its commitment to bringing free Shakespeare to the community and strengthening audience engagement with the arts, The Public Theater will mount its mobile unit again this spring. Now in its seventh year, the Mobile Unit’s free tour celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the mobiler unit bringing Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts.

Musician, choreographer, and filmmaker Michael Holman presents a dramatized tour of his collection. With live storytelling and projected video/film scene-sequences, Holman will recount his personal history in the creation of hiphop culture. From the uptown throwdowns to downtown collaborations with Jean-Michel Basquiat and B-Boys, to the creation of the very first hiphop television show, Graffiti Rock (with Run DMC, Kool Moe Dee and the New York City Breakers), Holman's performance will capture his role in the Belle Epoch that was the early 1980s in New York City.
