In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Lecture |


This talk with Dr. Stephan Sander-Faes features the more or less criminal deeds of individuals in the Austrian monarchy around the turn of the nineteenth century. Continuity and change, widely understood, as well as an increasingly activist central government were the hallmarks of the Josephi(ni)st state during an era characterised by the French Revolution (1789), the ensuing Napoleonic wars, the end of the Holy Roman Empire (1806), and the incipient industrialization. Dr. Sander-Faes will investigate a largely overlooked source type: wanted notes from Lower Austria during these momentuous decades. In looking at the communication, circulation, and modification of the relevant media, he will also touch upon the construction of ‘the criminal’, what he or she looked like, and how state officials described these offenders. Analysis of these (written) wanted notes further enables us to consider three additional aspects: the diffusion of body knowledge among a mostly illiterate peasantry, which highlights how judicial-bureaucratic sources may be used to analyze shifts in media use, and, finally, allows for insights into the material culture of the rural underclasses.

A talk by Professor Elisabeth Bronfen. Westworld, a postmodern splice between artificial intelligence fantasy and the classic Western, quotes no text more often than Shakespeare’s plays. This lecture explores how the serial return of these citations reflects on the seriality of this prestige television show, itself conceived as a complex narrative loop. At the same time, this lecture looks at how rereading Shakespeare’s plays through the lens of this subsequent recycling might change our understanding of these plays.

In 2018, for nearly 3 billion people each day, cooking is conducted on open fires or rudimentary cookstoves that are fueled by coal or unsustainable wood. At a time when pressure to take climate action is increasing, supporting efficient cookstoves climate protection projects is ranked as one of the most efficient solutions to stabilize our climate and make a positive impact on the world. In addition to the climate benefits associated with their use, clean cookstoves and fuels support vulnerable communities around the world in ways that can be life-changing: empowering women and girls, providing new local jobs, improving health, and protecting biodiversity. This panel discussion will present best practices developed to date and then launch into thoughtful discussion around other strategies and tactics that might help businesses, foundations, and other non-profit organizations create the most value in their strategy to implement the Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, speakers will also explore the whole range of benefits awaiting those taking decisive action: boosts in trust, quality of stakeholder relationships, and newly-created social value along the value chain.

Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels.

With many predicting the end of U.S. hegemony, Russia and China's growing cooperation in a number of key strategic areas looks set to have a major impact on global power dynamics. But what lies behind this Sino-Russian rapprochement? Is it simply the result of deteriorated Russo-US and Sino-US relations or does it date back to a more fundamental alignment of interests after the Cold War? In this book, leading expert on Sino-Russian relations Alexander Lukin attempts to answer these questions by offering a deeply-informed and nuanced assessment of Russia and China's ever-closer ties. Tracing the evolution of this partnership from the1990s to the present day, he shows how economic and geopolitical interests drove thetwo counties together in spite of political and cultural differences.

When the Ukrainian parliament adopted a new law on education in September 2017, this development was welcomed by civil society and Ukraine’s Western partners as an important part of the post-Euromaidan reform agenda. However, the new law provoked an outcry from neighboring states, particularly Hungary, as it drastically reduced the use of minority languages in the education process. Notwithstanding their warning that its implementation would jeopardize not only their country’s bilateral relations with Ukraine but also Ukraine’s European integration, President Poroshenko enacted the law, thus exacerbating the controversy. To understand why Kyiv supported a minority-insensitive law despite its predictable foreign policy repercussions, one should look at the domestic political context. Similarly, it is the domestic contexts of the respective kin-states that can shed light on their harsh response to Ukraine’s assertive move. Speaker Volodymyr Kulyk is a Head Research Fellow at the Institute of Political and Ethnic Studies, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. He has also taught at Columbia, Stanford and Yale Universities, Kyiv Mohyla Academy and Ukrainian Catholic University as well as having research fellowships at Harvard, Stanford, Woodrow Wilson Center, University College London, University of Alberta and other Western scholarly institutions.

Focusing on the people, plants, and architecture of the park, this introductory course also covers basic camera handling, composition, light, and subject matter. Bring your own camera. From Beaux Arts to glass towers, the architecture around the park reflects a rich procession from early NYC Deco skyscrapers to crystalline prisms such as the Bank of America tower. Working with New York-based architecture and landscape photographer Jade Doskow, students will learn about the history of the buildings around the park and then move onto a series of exercises in shooting architecture, making pictures both abstract and formal, focusing on the light upon the cityscape and the intertwining of the landscaping of the park with the structures around it. Students should bring their camera, lenses, tripod and or iPhone.

Susan Murray explores an over forty-year history of the technological, aesthetic, industrial, and cultural development of color television, which was imagined and sold as a new way of seeing, an ideal form of modern American consumer vision that promised a spectacular send of proximity and immersion. She argues that color television was an incredibly complex technology of visual culture that reframed the very idea of television, while also revealing deep tensions and aspirations about technology’s relationship to and perspective on the “natural” world and our potential to extend human sight and experience.

Turkey’s most recent currency crisis is only a symptom of an underlying debt crisis with structural roots. In the aftermath of the 2001 crisis, Turkey’s economy has been reorganized around an economic politics  that combined a neoliberal mode of governance with a financialized populism that aimed to enhance the  welfare of the society through increased access to credit. Today, as this neoliberal populist regime of accumulation falls apart, the Erdoğan regime appears to be having difficulty in managing the crisis. Speaker Yahya M. Madra currently teaches economics at Drew University, Madison, NJ.

The 1962 novel is set in Greenwich Village, New York City, in the late 1950s. It portrayed many themes that were taboo at the time of its release, including bisexuality, interracial couples and extramarital affairs. James Baldwin (1924-1987) was an American novelist and social critic. His essays, as collected in Notes of a Native Son (1955), explore intricacies of racial, sexual, and class distinctions in Western societies, most notably in mid-20th-century America. His unfinished manuscript, Remember This House, was expanded and adapted for cinema as the Academy Award-nominated documentary film I Am Not Your Negro. Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion.

Laleh Khalili of the University of London will reflect on the processes of harbor-making that entail the transformation of coasts, seashores, subsea contours, and the very shape and flow of the seas. Such transformations harm ecosystems near and far. For instance they entail sand-mining, concrete manufacture, and production of aggregates: sand is the most traded world commodity by volume, while the production of one ton of Portland cement produces around one ton of CO2. But harbors also influence social lives in ways that subtly play havoc with the environment in the long run. The lecture will specifically focus on the ports of the Persian Gulf, one of the shallowest seas in the world, and home to a variety of warm-water marine flora and fauna.

Night Before the Funeral is a new Czech play, originally produced in 2017 by the Svanda Theatre in Prague. A death in the family brings everybody home, but a brief peace is broken by family squabbles, politics, and life crises. The mother's new Iranian boyfriend and a spectacular public breakdown just increase the tensions. An examination of life, in all its complexity, in the modern Czech Republic. Untitled Theater Company #61 is a theater of Ideas: scientific, political, philosophical, and above all theatrical. Their shows mix tragedy and comedy in a manner inspired by classic absurdism, while often incorporating music, technology, and physical theater. Early defining events include their Havel Festival and Ionesco Festival, in which they produced their full works (with the participation and attendance of President Havel and with Ionesco’s daughter, Marie-France, respectively). They have received Critics Picks for their work from The New York Times, Time Out, and The Village Voice.

Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Each week will feature a different group of actors. Tuesdays through Saturdays, September 13-October 13, 2018.

In his recent book, Steven Sangran employs a broad analysis of Chinese patriliny to propose a distinctive theoretical conceptualization of the role of desire in culture. The book utilizes a unique synthesis of Marxian and psychoanalytic insights in arguing that Chinese patriliny is best understood as, simultaneously, a mode of production of desire and as instituted fantasy.

In 1802, Nikolai Karamzin founded the journal Messenger of Europe with the intention that it would inform the Russian public of current political developments in the West, including as they related to the European colonies. From its inaugural issue through 1804, about two dozen stories explicitly concerning the Haitian Revolution appeared in its pages, and as an editor, Karamzin was sympathetic to the cause. In this talk, the Ohio State University's Jennifer Wilson will explore Karamzin’s investments in a successful slave rebellion on the island of Saint-Domingue (present-day Haiti) with a focus on how the Haitian Revolution provided a canvas onto which he could impose his own preoccupations with matters of self-determination and the right of Russia (and Haiti) to form governments that departed from the norms and practices of the West.

Conduction of science experiments allow not only for an individual’s natural curiosity to shine through, but also for “scientists” to better understand the world around them and the natural laws by which the world functions. Experiments will call for the “scientists” to hypothesize about what they predict will happen, teach “investigators” how to be capable of finding solutions to big problems, will involve communicating with their fellow “scientists,” and will be completed independently by the “scientists.”

Lecture |


As we plunge into the uncertain times of the Anthropocene (a geological epoch dominated by humans), we face a convergence of global crises: from the breaching of planetary boundaries like climate change and biodiversity loss, to crises in energy and resource extractivism, food systems, economic inequality, security, health and demographics—especially migration and urbanization. Responses to these crises by dominant actors and institutions have often been superficial, delayed, fragmentary and even reactionary. They fall short of addressing the systemic dimensions of the crises, their interconnected complexity, their root causes and the intersectional forms of power and injustice enabling their hegemonic reproduction. Instead, they often replicate the logics producing the crises, thus failing to embody the systemic alternatives and “great transitions” we urgently need.

A discussion including author Liao Yiwu, the winner of the 2018 Disturbing the Peace Award for a Courageous Writer at Risk. As a vocal critic of China’s Communist regime, he spent four years in prison after publicly reciting his poem “Massacre” in memory of the victims of the Tiananmen Square military on June 4, 1989. He currently lives in Germany, under asylum. Also present will be Liu Xia, the runner-up for the award. After substantial pressure from German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the international community, Liu Xia was finally given her freedom to leave China. She arrived in Berlin on July 10, three days before the anniversary of the death of her husband, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo, who had been under unofficial and illegal house arrest for eight years. Although never charged with a crime, Liu Xia lost her freedom due to her husbands 11-year prison sentence for drafting a petition calling for democracy and human rights in China.

The Shape of the Ruins is a masterly story of conspiracy, political obsession, and literary investigation. When a man is arrested at a museum for attempting to steal the bullet-ridden suit of a murdered Colombian politician, few notice. But soon this thwarted theft takes on greater meaning as it becomes a thread in a widening web of popular fixations with conspiracy theories, assassinations, and historical secrets; and it haunts those who feel that only they know the real truth behind these killings. Colombian novelist Juan Gabriel Vásquez has delved into his country's complex history and present. His work has received several international awards, including Spain's Premio Alfaguara and the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. The French Ministry of Culture recently made him Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

Discover the East Hampton house that was designed to help its inhabitants transcend mortality. When artists Shusako Arakawa and Madeline Gins set out to construct their “Lifespan Extending Villa,” Bioscleave House, artist Robert Bowen was inspired by their one-of-a-kind construction, to create his experimental documentary, The Long Island House. “Imagine a house that is an abstracted three-dimensional diagram of what a house might be,” Bowen writes. “Bioscleave is a perceptual research station built to study the relationship of the body to built architectural spaces.” Bowen will discuss his work and Bioscleave’s lure of immortality with photographer and artist Bryan Whitney, whose work focuses on how we perceive and experience real space and ourselves, and cultural critic Don Byrd.

Spurred by recent heated debates about NYC's select high schools and disparity throughout the city’s public schools, this event will unpack the issues of equity and quality in our education system.

Post-rehab, Maggie Terry is single-mindedly trying to keep her head down in New York City in Sarah Schulman's book. Against this absurd backdrop, Maggie wants nothing more than to slowly re- build her life in hopes of being reunited with her daughter. But her first day on the job as a private investigator lands her in the middle of a sensational new case: actress strangled. If Maggie is going to solve this mystery, she’ll have to shake the ghosts―dead NYPD partner, vindictive ex, steadfast drug habit―that have long ruled her life.

In the winter trenches and flak-filled skies of World War I, soldiers and pilots alike might avoid death, only to find themselves imprisoned in Germany’s archipelago of POW camps, often in abominable conditions. As Neal Bascomb writes, the most infamous was Holzminden, a land-locked Alcatraz of sorts that housed the most troublesome, escape-prone prisoners. Its commandant was a boorish, hate-filled tyrant named Karl Niemeyer who swore that none should ever leave.

Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Each week will feature a different group of actors. Tuesdays through Saturdays, September 13-October 13, 2018.

Thirty-three years separate two one-act plays that are connected by absurd humor and the characters of Vanek and Stanek. What happens when two writers meet—one who is not allowed to write and the other who writes whatever he wants? What if the first one has a surprising proposal for the second one? And what if the two of them meet years later when they can write freely but it is not working? Vaclav Havel’s dialogue confronts the dramatic attempts of a debuting author. To sign or not to sign? To act or just to talk? Did the elites fail or did we? Protest? Debt! Svanda Theatre is one of the oldest drama theatres in Prague. It´s focused on contemporary plays and also on the bold adaptation of classics.

Dancing with the Future is a production that pushes the boundaries of art and science, fusing dance, evolutionary dynamics, and an interactive game. It explores the mechanisms of cooperation and investigates a question that is at the heart of all sustainable development, yet remains widely elusive because it entails a moral component that cannot easily be assessed: Are humans able to cooperate with future generations? In other words, what planet are we willing to leave behind for the people who will come after us? The concept was devised by Martin Nowak and Gloria Benedikt; the choreography was headed by Gloria Benedikt, Mimmo Miccolis, Henoch Spinola, and Sophia Isidore. The performance will be accompanied by a stage game designed by Piotr Magnuszewski.

The exhibition traces her development from schoolgirl projects to highly accomplished renderings of the natural scenery of the Connecticut River Valley used in her husband’s many geology publications. Less well known are colorful paintings on cotton—some more than twelve feet long—that were used to illustrate her husband’s many college lectures on geology, botany, zoology, and anatomy.

Symposium |


With a focus in this symposium on Arabic dramaturgies, they hope to begin to answer these questions. As a term that bridges the ideas and practice of contemporary performance, dramaturgy draws our attention to the process of artistic production. It explores the notion that process is performance and invites us to look at the question of how artists connect ideas and forms in their work. This symposium will feature research papers, artist talks and roundtable events.The organization committee will select papers that will be presented in 15-20 minute sessions during the symposium next to artist talks and panels. In addition to this, the sessions and papers will be compiled in a publication/book that will be generated from the discussions at the convening.

Cartographic and literary depictions of colonial Latin American and Caribbean cities tell many stories; of bustling port towns, economic hubs, and administrative colonial centers. Embedded within these narratives are also stories of competing geographies and the enslaved and free black peoples who moved within them. This seminar presentation serves as an entrance into one of the many faces of the black urban Atlantic. It uses Havana as a case study to explore the contested geographies of port and mainland spaces. Speaker Guadalupe García specializes in colonial Latin America and the Caribbean. Her research interests include colonial cities, urban space, and legal topographies. Her first book was published in 2016 with the University of California Press and is entitled Beyond the Walled City: Colonia Exclusion in Havana.

Glory Van Scott grew up in privilege, the daughter of a Chicago physician and his socialite wife. And then, in 1955, when she was just a girl, her cousin, Emmett Till, was murdered. Even through her anger, Glory knew that if she lay down in the mire and horror of her family tragedy, she would sink. Following this realization, Van Scott grew up to be principal dancer with the Katherine Dunham, Agnes De Mille, and Talley Beatty Companies, joined American Ballet Theater, performed on Broadway, movies, and television, and educated and inspired new generations of empowered young men and women. Help us celebrate Dr. Glory Van Scott and the release of her memoir Glory: A Life Among Legends. New York Times Critic, Jennifer Dunning writes about Dr. Glory, excerpted from the new book: Glory A Life Among Legends by Dr. Glory Van Scott.

No matter what your problem is, loving yourself is the solution. It is the basis for living the life you want. If you want more happiness, more health, more abundance, or more love, just love yourself more. If you are frustrated, confused, stuck, or you feel unlovable, don't think that it is impossible to create the life you want; don't keep accepting the way things are, or trying to hide your dissatisfaction.

These impulses are reflected in the organization of the exhibition, which unfolds as a series of short stories told through conversations between religious artworks in The Met collection, both at the Met Fifth Avenue and the Met Cloisters, and fashions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Jessica Glasscock, Research Associate at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, will be in conversation with Fiona Dieffenbacher, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design.

Led by the "fiery alto saxophonist and prolific composer” Aakash Mittal (Minneapolis Star Tribune), the Awaz Trio sculpts sonic landscapes, pointillistic textures, and angular melodies from Indian and American improvised music. Their debut project, Nocturne, is a series of pieces that deconstructs five Hindustani evening and night ragas. The colorful dissonances, meditative silences, and punctuated rhythms that emerge paint a unique picture of the night. At times the music evokes the meditation of a world at rest, night terrors conjured by the imagination, and the slow cadence of blue light melting into darkness. Nocturne is part of the trio's mission to create new work that explores the concept of Awaz, a Hindi-Urdu word that changes meaning between sound, noise, and voice depending on the context.

Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent).

Symposium |


With a focus in this symposium on Arabic dramaturgies, they hope to begin to answer these questions. As a term that bridges the ideas and practice of contemporary performance, dramaturgy draws our attention to the process of artistic production. It explores the notion that process is performance and invites us to look at the question of how artists connect ideas and forms in their work. This symposium will feature research papers, artist talks and roundtable events.The organization committee will select papers that will be presented in 15-20 minute sessions during the symposium next to artist talks and panels. In addition to this, the sessions and papers will be compiled in a publication/book that will be generated from the discussions at the convening.

Performance |


Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Each week will feature a different group of actors. Tuesdays through Saturdays, September 13-October 13, 2018.

Eve of Retirement represents not only an artistic masterpiece but also a political and social catharsis for the Slovak nation, whose government collaborated with the Nazi regime during the so-called Slovak state (1939–1945). The production may be characterized as metaphorical realism showing this “evil” and its historical recurrence. Playwright Thomas Bernhard is one of the most important German-language authors of the postwar era. He pushes his contempt for Austria as a nest of unregenerate Nazis and anti-Semites to an outrageous extreme in the play. Presented by: Astorka Korzo ́90 Theatre Director: Juraj Nvota Cast: Peter Simun, Zuzana Kronerova, Marta Sladeckova The production was awarded Grand Prix as Best Production at the New Drama Festival of Contemporary Slovak and World Drama 2006 organized by The Theatre Institute in Bratislava.

One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Every Saturday.
