Classical Music | Metropolitan Opera tenor, Grammy-nominated choir and orchestra perform Bernstein and more


Grammy-nominated choir of Trinity Wall Street; NOVUS NY, orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor; John McVeigh, Metropolitan Opera tenor; Stephen Salters, baritone.  Program  Copland (1900-1990)/ Bernstein (1918-1990) El Salon Mexico (1936) Mahler (1860-1911) Das Lied von der Erde (1909) Snider Mass for the Endangered (World Premiere) About the Performers Grammy-nominated interpreters of both early and new music, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has changed the realm of 21st-century vocal music, breaking new ground with an artistry described as “blazing with vigour…a choir from heaven” (The Times). The ensemle has been described as “thrilling” (New Yorker), “musically top-notch” (Wall Street Journal), and “simply superb” (New York Times). Metropolitan Opera tenor John McVeigh has appeared at the Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, and many more venues. NOVUS NY is Trinity Church Wall Street’s contemporary music orchestra, under the leadership of Trinity’s Director of Music, Julian Wachner. Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” its members perform new music from all corners of the repertoire, meeting “every challenge with an impressive combination of discipline and imagination” (New York Classical Review). Music director Julian Wachner has been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious,” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, sophisticated chromatic exploration…a rich backdrop, wavering between a glimmer and a tingle...,” (La Scena Musicale) being “a compendium of surprises,” (Washington Post) and as “bold and atmospheric,” while having “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and noted for “the silken complexities of his harmonies” (New York Times). He has made guest appearances with such major organizations as the San Francisco, New York City, and Glimmerglass Opera, the New York and Hong Kong Philharmonic and many more. Baritone Stephen Salters has been described by The New York Times as “…a man of thorough confidence, huge charm, and a vocal allure that come brimming off the stage…an ability to communicate gentleness and power with the same immediacy”. About the Program El Salón México is a symphonic composition by Aaron Copland, which uses Mexican folk music extensively. Leonard Bernstein and Copland himself conducted recordings of the work. Arturo Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra performed the music in a broadcast concert on March 14, 1942. Das Lied von der Erde (English: The Song of the Earth) is a composition for two voices and orchestra written by the Austrian composer Gustav Mahler. Mahler composed this work following the most painful period in his life, and the songs address themes such as those of living, parting and salvation. On the centenary of Mahler's birth, the composer and prominent Mahler conductor Leonard Bernstein described Das Lied von der Erde as Mahler's "greatest symphony". Snider's Mass for the Endangered elegizes species on the brink of extinction, as a 'requiem for the not-yet-gone'. The Mass was commissioned by Trinity Wall Street, under the auspices of their Mass Reimaginings initiative.

Lecture | Transforming the Liminal Hero: Border-Crossing Interconnections in The Taking of the Tiger Mountain and Its Textual Pedigree


Known as a Hong Kong director of action-filled and visually spectacular blockbusters, Tsui Hark made a seemingly surprising move in 2014 and shot a 3D remake of the 1970 Maoist revolutionary opera film Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy in mainland China. Existing scholarship tends to see the remake as merely a reflection of the close marriage between politics and commerce in contemporary Chinese cinema. This talk offers a more nuanced perspective on the remake, revealing how its deep historical dimension generated complexity and subtlety in Tsui’s approach. Rather than just commercially packaging and disseminating current state ideology, the remake reflects Tsui’s long-term personal and artistic navigation across multiple national and ideological borders. It embodies Tsui’s signature way of constructing alluring cinematic shapes for a liminal “Chineseness” that lacks substantial reference, consistency, and clear origin. Speaker Zhuoyi Wang is Associate Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures and the coordinator of the Chinese Program at Hamilton College.

Opening Reception | A Luta Continua: The Sylvio Perlstein Collection


Unfolding across all three floors of the location, A Luta Continua is the first United States presentation of the Sylvio Perlstein Collection. Over the course of more than five decades, Perlstein has assembled an intensely personal collection rooted in a passion for the work of groundbreaking artists; a commitment to self-education; and an affinity for a wide range of mediums. Remarkably diverse, the collection traces the course of twentieth-century art, from Dada and Surrealism to Abstraction, Land Art, Conceptual Art, Minimal Art, Pop Art, Op Art, Arte Povera, Nouveau Réalisme, and Contemporary Art. But above all, ‘A Luta Continua’ testifies to the power of connoisseurship and to collecting as a talent – an art in itself – that must be honed through sustained, sometimes courageous, and often joyful personal effort.

The result is a film that combines Berkenblit’s life with her work, an intimate look at what drives the artist’s practice. Organized by Brett Littman, Executive Director.

Lecture | #metoo: 'Epistemic Injustice' and the Sexual Harassment Tipping Point


The most popular feminist philosophical response to questions about the intractability of sexist interpretations of women’s experience—on the part of all genders, women included—is the that women’s reports of their run-ins with sexism routinely fail to achieve broad social uptake (“testimonial injustice”) and that women also often lack the concepts that allow them to articulate in an efficacious way their inchoate sense of having experienced sexist harms (“hermeneutical injustice”).  In this talk, Nancy Bauer construes this response, originally articulated by Miranda Fricker and tweaked by many other feminist philosophers, as at bottom a sophisticated version of the popular—but ultimately not very convincing—claim that we seem to be at a tipping point because lots of women celebrities are now accusing male celebrities of harassment. She finds a better way of making sense of what’s going on by construing the power of the viral “#metoo” hashtag to induce a Gestalt shift in our interpretation of what J. L. Austin called “the total speech act in the total situation.”

Lecture | Food and Families in Postwar America


This is the first class of five on the social history of food and families in Postwar America, focusing on the personal, lived-experiences of people. It will focus on the role of different food products and experiences in everyday life, including: the introduction of convenience foods into home kitchens; gendered and racialized approaches to advertising food products; a burgeoning restaurant landscape including McDonald’s and Howard Johnsons; and newly organized school lunch programs. It will also discuss the deep nostalgia that surrounds this particular period in American history, asking ourselves “what do these foods and this time period really mean to us today?” The subsequent dates of the course are May 3, 17, 24, and 31. Speaker Shayne Leslie Figueroa is a doctoral fellow in the Food Studies program at New York University. Her dissertation work is a social history of the school lunch program in New York City during the postwar period.

Poetry Reading | Poets Read: Celina Su / Youmna Chlala


Celina Su and Youmna Chlala launch their respective debut poetry collections, questioning of spatial practices, architecture and cities as they relate to language, visuality, and literature. Both author's poetry intersects with their artistic and academic practices in multiple ways along the lines of race, translation, movement, and displacement. Chlala's collection The Paper Camera (Litmus Press) is about the language as the object that mediates and records memory, longing, loss, and love, notates light and translates between body and space. Su's collection Landia (Belladonna* Series) excavates literal and figurative borderlands—redrawn boundaries, architectural palimpsests, underground transport systems—to reckon with the historical and cultural forces that shape our cities and our intimate lives.

Book Discussion | The Buffoons, A Ridiculous Comedy: The First Female-Authored Comedy Printed in Italy


This new translation makes The Buffoons available to Anglophone readers for the first time. Published in 1641, this burlesque play by by Margherita Costa (c. 1600-c. 1657) depicts the mismatched sexual desires of a prince and princess. Although set in northern Africa, the comedy satirizes the Florentine court of Grand Duke Ferdinando II de' Medici, one of Costa's several elite patrons. By featuring the clownish antics of an unconventional cast of dwarfs, hunchbacks, and buffoons, it reflects the bizarre appetites and grotesque entertainments of the day. Ribald puns and commedia dell'arte-inspired slapstick abound, presenting the reader with a comic alternative to decorous women's writing in early modern Italy. With editors / translators: Sara Dìaz (Fairfield University) Jessica Goethals (University of Alabama) and Suzanne Cusick Scene Reading by Richard Dent and Ali Sohaili

Lecture | The Specter of 'Left Fascism': Adorno's 'Authoritarian Personality' Reconsidered


The rise of right-wing populism around the globe, but particularly in the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe, has occasioned a return to the concept of the “Authoritarian Personality.” It needs to be critically evaluated. One of the key early criticisms of the concept was that it focused exclusively on right-wing authoritarianism while over-looking a corresponding authoritarianism of the Left. Speaker Samir Gandesha is Associate Professor in the Department of the Humanities and the Director of the Institute for the Humanities at Simon Fraser University, in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Play | Henry V: Shakespeare from the Mobile Unit


Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.
