Performance | Tessellations: A Durational Theater Experiment


A woman stays at home while her husband and children are away for the day. A man she has never met appears at the door. Tessellations is a durational performance piece, where one actress will perform the same scene over and over again with 20 different strangers (with whom she has never rehearsed!) over the course of an afternoon. This show is an experiment: arrive when you want to, stay for five minutes or five hours, and watch what happens along with us in real time. A Note about this performance: Tessellations is a durational piece that will last from 1pm-7pm on February 25th. This event has an open door policy. Feel free to purchase a ticket for the time slot you are generally interested in attending. However, this time slot is not binding, and you are welcome to come and go as you please throughout the afternoon. Each scene is 10 minutes and will be followed by a 10-minute break. Audience members are free to leave and return during each break. Once seated, you can choose to stay as long as you like. You are welcome to come back at any time. Written by Xavier Markey-Smith

Play | Phaedra's Love: Hauntingly Intense Adaptation of Seneca


Experience the haunting intensity of Sarah Kane's Phaedra's Love, a gripping theatrical masterpiece that flips inside out the very abject nature of the most elemental epitome of human relations - a family. In Kane's blunt and vulgar adaptation of Seneca's Phaedra, a seemingly joyous birthday celebration descends into a harrowing tale of passion, delusion, domination, and the tangled webs of human brutality. A student production.

Poetry Reading | Poetry of Enslavement and the African Burial Ground


An enlightening afternoon with esteemed poet David Mills. Explore the profound themes of his award-winning book of poems, Boneyarn, which is the first book of poetry about the history of slavery in New York City. During the program, Mills will read a selection of his poems and shed light on the African Burial Ground—the oldest and largest known excavated burial ground in North America for both free and enslaved Africans––which is located just blocks away from the Museum. Operating from 1712 to 1795, this burial ground is the resting place of 15,000 enslaved and free Blacks, along with some Native Americans and impoverished white people. Mills' groundbreaking work captures the stories of those who worked as cooks, childhood chimney sweeps, laborers on the docks near the seaport, participants in the Revolutionary War, and individuals who maintained African traditions in burial practices. Don't miss this unique event where Mills will creatively "excavate" the tragedies and triumphs of New York's enslaved and free Black community.
