Dance Performance | Open Practice: New York Dance Premiere (online; streaming through Feb. 21)


To prepare for his high wire walks around the globe—more than 80 of them so far—Philippe Petit has practiced almost daily for the last 55 years. His most notable adventure was his illegal walk between the Twin Towers, a caper recounted in his book To Reach the Clouds, on which the 2009 Academy Award-winning documentary Man on Wire was based.  Petit’s latest show beautifully shot at the majestic Ulster Performing Arts Center, gives audiences front row seats to observe Petit’s creative process and inventive moves on the wire. Interspersed with anecdotes about his life, he reveals some of the extraordinary ways he thinks about creativity and risk and what he calls cheating the impossible.

Discussion | A Playwright on the Black American Experience (online)


Kia Corthron speaks with Todd London about her plays and issues around Black American experiences, police brutality, and disabilities. Corthron has used theatre to address issues around the Black American experience, disability, and youth violence. In conversation with author Todd London, she describes the origins of several of her plays, such as Breath, Boom, A Cool Dip in the Barren Saharan Crick, and Megastasis, and the political and social issues addressed in each. Plays like Force Continuum from 2000 looked at police brutality long before it was an issue broadly addressed in the mainstream media.

Discussion | The Promised Land: Our New World (online)


If the last two years have shown us anything, it is that change can be unexpected, complex, and bittersweet. There often lies beauty in this experience, as challenge and change are vital to constructing a new world. Just as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. proclaimed to have looked over and seen the Promised Land, and just as we as a people have descended valleys, so too can we come together to climb mountains. This is a multidisciplinary conversation that reflects on the challenges and changes we've collectively experienced over the last year, envisions what the "Promised Land" looks like for the Black community, and explores the tangible actions we all must take to create this new world together.

Talk | Artist Talk: Negative Space (online)


Interdisciplinary artist A.K. Burns presents an in-depth look at Negative Space, her four-part epic that includes a series of multi-channel video installations and related works which explore the violence of boundary making practices and the potential agency enacted through subjugated positions. Each video in the series is a non-linear allegorical narrative built around a physical system: power (the sun), the body, space (void/land) and water. Through a process of conjuring and deconstructing science fiction tropes, the videos operate at the intersection of politics and fantasy. Negative Space raises questions about the allocation of resources, environmental fragility, marginalized bodies, and their relationship to place. Set in a speculative present, the premise of the Negative Space tetralogy is to envision a new materialist cosmology wherein hierarchical relations permute.

Discussion | Been Seen: The Photography of Zora J Murff (online)


Zora J Murff is a former social worker who turned to photography over a decade ago. He joins us in the first of a series of conversations—Been Seen— about the gaze of Black photographers who explore and celebrate Black life. In his latest monograph, True Colors (or, Affirmations in a Crisis), he addresses the act of remembering and the politics of self which Murff identifies as “the duality of Black patriotism and the challenges of finding belonging in places not made for me—of creating an affirmation in a moment of crisis as I learn to remake myself in my own image.”

Book Club | International Literature Book Club: The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy (online)


Tolstoy’s most famous novella is an intense and moving examination of death and the possibilities of redemption, here in a powerful translation by the award-winning Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. Ivan Ilyich is a middle-aged man who has spent his life focused on his career as a bureaucrat and emotionally detached from his wife and children. After an accident he finds himself on the brink of an untimely death, which he sees as a terrible injustice. Face to face with his mortality, Ivan begins to question everything he has believed about the meaning of life. The Death of Ivan Ilyich is a masterpiece of psychological realism and philosophical profundity that has inspired generations of readers. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks.
