Performance | Storytelling: Village Voices


Resident of NYC’s fabled Greenwich Village for nearly half a century, Regina Ress lovingly brings us the voices of her neighbors, along with her own, as we meet old Italians and homeless angels, supreme court justices and mafia dons, 9/11 volunteers, and the Provincetown Playhouse’s founding poet, Edna St Vincent Millay. The stories are true (or at least mainly true!) and give a glimpse of the diversity of life in the ‘hood. Regina will be joined by another longtime Village denizen, musician Michael Moss. Regina Ress is an award winning storyteller, actor, author, and educator who has performed and taught from Broadway to Brazil, in English and Spanish, in settings from grade schools to senior centers, prisons to Carnegie Hall, homeless shelters to The White House. Jazz composer Michael Moss has been a part of the downtown music scene for over 50 years. He’s led musical groups such as Accidental Orchestra and New York Free Quartet, and collaborated with a wide array of artists including puppeteer Ralph Lee, choreographer Judith Moss, and storyteller Diane Wolkstein.

Author Reading | Racial Melancholia, Racial Dissociation: On the Social and Psychic Lives of Asian Americans


Racial Melancholia, Racial Dissociation draws on case histories from the mid-1990s to the present to explore the social and psychic predicaments of Asian American young adults from Generation X to Generation Y. Combining critical race theory with several strands of psychoanalytic thought and clinical practice, authors David Eng and Shinhee Han develop the concepts of racial melancholia and racial dissociation to investigate changing processes of loss associated with immigration, displacement, diaspora, and assimilation.
