Book Club | Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain (Online)


Discuss Thomas Mann's classic 1927 novel, The Magic Mountain, about a sanatorium in the Swiss Alps as a microcosm for Europe, which in the years before 1914 was already exhibiting the first symptoms of its own terminal irrationality. The Magic Mountain was first published in German in November 1924. It is widely considered to be one of the most influential works of twentieth-century German literature. Mann started writing The Magic Mountain in 1912, but World War 1 interrupted his work, and its aftermath led the author to undertake a major re-examination of European bourgeois society. He explored the sources of the destructiveness displayed by much of civilised humanity. He was also drawn to speculate about more general questions related to personal attitudes to life, health, illness, sexuality, and mortality.

Performance | Audience Participation Theater Experience


Guided by questions and prompts, audience members create a shared script together in A Thousand Ways, an entirely participatory theater experience. Obie Award-winning performance troupe 600 Highwaymen present A Thousand Ways (Part Three): An Assembly. The final experience of their triptych of encounters between strangers is an intimate reckoning -- of how small we are in the face of awesome natural forces, and of our mutual dependence. An Assembly tasks an audience of 16 strangers to reconstruct an evocative story of perseverance and ruin. This unique theatrical event tests the ways we arrange ourselves after so much time apart. This experience will be discovered and enacted by audience members in collaboration with each other. The instructions for the performance are written on notecards, and audience members read what is written on them. Written & Created by Abigail Browde & Michael Silverstone 600 Highwaymen (Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone), are "standard bearers of contemporary theater-making" (Le Monde), who have "quietly been shaking up American theatre since 2009" (The Guardian). They are recipients of Switzerland's ZKB Patronize Prize, and their work has been nominated for two Bessie Awards, a Drama League Award, and Austria's Nestroy Prize. In 2016, Abigail and Michael were named artist fellows by the New York Foundation for the Arts and are currently Associate Artists of IN SITU, the European platform for artistic creation in public space.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Pomp and Circumstance / HUB


Katie Butler: Pomp and Circumstance Katie Butler’s politically charged paintings of opulent campaign dinners harp on the problematic nature of legislating on behalf of the average citizen from a detached framework of privilege. The dining table, as the nexus in which “bread and butter” issues are discussed, sets the stage for ostentatious displays of lobster, caviar, and oysters on the half shell against the backdrop of run-of-the-mill checkered tablecloths. Her use of foreshortened and bird’s-eye view perspectives combined achieves a dimensional flattening of pictorial space, disinviting viewers from inhabiting these seemingly seductive tableaus, which are meant to feel fraught, contrived, and otherworldly. Amidst the pageantry of executive seals and fine china, the company card paying the check provides an unsettling dose of reality - a reminder that corporate meal write-offs are designed by and intended to benefit only those who are seated at the table. Michael Childress: HUB For his exhibition, Childress presents modular canvases from a never before shown body of work entitled Bridges and Tunnels. Consisting of rectangular units that are spaced and stacked vertically in combinations of three or four registers, the series explores languages of minimalism and geometric abstraction as ways to embody and delineate space. Each horizontal bracket forms a kind of grammatical syntax equipped with punctuated voids, bearing likeness to solid and broken lines that encompass trigrams of the I Ching. With his signature staining technique, Childress ushers his viewers across his surfaces through subtle transitions between hues, joining left and right, top to bottom, inward and outward.

It was co-written and directed by Brenda Bufalino and Tony Waag and featured the New Tap Dance Orchestra (Warren Craft, Shelby Kaufman, Tamii Sakurai, Danny Wallace and Xander Weinman), Brenda Bufalino, the late Harold Cromer, Barbara Duffy and Company (Barbara Duffy, Cintia Chamecki, Chikako Iwahori and Monifa Kincaid), Ranya Rene’e, Aurora Reyes, Tony Waag and Cartier Williams.
