Performance | The Art of Storytelling


Storyteller Darren Thompson shares the traditions and culture of his Ojibwe community. The Ojibwe (said to mean "Puckered Moccasin People"), also known as the Chippewa, are a group of Algonquian-speaking bands who amalgamated as a tribe in the 1600's. They were primarily hunters and fishermen, as the climate of Michigan's Upper Peninsula was too cool for farming. Darren Thompson is an award-winning Native American flute player and educator from the Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe Reservation in Northern Wisconsin. His talent and hard work have brought him to perform at such venues as the National Indian Education Association, the National Congress of American Indians and the North American Indigenous Games, America’s largest American Indian cultural festival. Start times: 12pm, 1pm, 3pm.

Lecture | New York City Food History - Industrial Foods and Factories


This class is an introduction to the food history of New York City, telling the stories of the edible goods produced, consumed, and venerated in homes and restaurants within the five boroughs. The history of restaurants, the meals of the wealthy and those of the working class, and the foodstuffs on all these plates will be explored. New York City is a city of immigrants, and these diverse groups from around the globe have contributed to a constantly evolving definition of urban food culture. The topic of the second week will be Industrial Foods and Factories. One of the economies most impacted by the industrial revolution in New York City was food production. The peak time for the production of industrial, or packaged, foods originating in NYC was 1860 – 1960. What foods were produced, where were they marketed and distributed? How did these nascent food industry giants such as Nabisco and Domino Sugar re-shape the physical geography of New York City as well as the contents of dinner plates? The Professor: Dr. Shayne Figueroa is a food historian and recently earned her PhD in Food Studies from New York University. Her dissertation examines the social history of the school lunch program in New York City during the postwar period. Shayne has taught undergraduate courses at NYU (Food Issues in Contemporary Society), The New School (Introduction to Food Studies; Kids and Food), and Sterling College.

Classical Music | Orchestra Performs Music Inspired by Japan


Led by music director Chris Whittaker, Strings of the Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra come together to perform music inspired by Japan and Japanese-American composers. After the concert, Friends of WHCO enjoy a food and sake tasting courtesy of Tampopo Ramen. About the Program Kenji Bunch's Supermaximum opens the program -- a work inspired by the songs of Depression-era chain gangs in the American deep south. Next will be performed, Toru Takemitsu's Requiem, a piece from earlier in his career which launched him into prominence after the work was discovered by Igor Stravinsky. By the end of his life, Takemitsu had become one of the most unique voices and influential composers in both Japanese and western classical music. Japanese-American composer Karen Tanaka's Dreamscape follows -- a lush and imaginative work, featuring harp and violin solo. The concert concludes with Christopher Theofanidis' A Thousand Cranes, named from the Senbazuru legend that states if one crafts one thousand paper cranes his or her wish will be granted. The piece is inspired by the story of Sadako Sasaki, a young girl who died from leukemia after initially surviving the 1945 nuclear bomb detonation on Hiroshima. Sasaki began making cranes while in the hospital, and her story renewed a culture-wide interest in the practice. In 1958, a statue of Sadako holding a golden crane was unveiled in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and installed in the Hiroshima Peace Park.

Opening Reception | Incubate: A Fantastical Installation


Shih Chieh Huang’s fantastical installation – in which an octopus-like creature, crafted from whirring and blinking electronics, kryptonite-colored goo, and plastic bags, waves comically – and sometimes suggestively. It’s an installation that poignantly confuses the wonder inspired by mysterious creatures and deep space with the mesmerizing effects of technology. Shih Chieh Huang, a Ted Fellow in 2014, has exhibited his sculptures and installations at the 55th Venice Biennial Glasstress, Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial Japan, Experimenta Biennial of Media Art Melbourne, Busan Biennial, Aichi Triennial Japan, 52nd Venice Biennial Taiwan Pavilion, Biennial Zero1 San Jose, Biennial Cuvée in Austria, the ARC Biennial Australia, and MOCA Shanghai.
