Poetry Reading | The New York City Poetry Festival


Every year on the last weekend of July, The Poetry Society of New York invites poetry organizations and collectives of all shapes and sizes to bring their unique formats, aesthetics, and personalities to The New York City Poetry Festival, a weekend-long event located on the pastoral lawns of Governors Island. The festival features poets from over 75 poetry organizations on its three main stages; a Vendor’s Village where local booksellers, artists and craft makers sell their wares; healthy and delicious food options; a beer garden sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery, poetry-inspired installation art throughout; the Ring of Daisies open mic; and other poetic festivities. One major highlight of the festival each year is its Youth Poetry Festival, which offers children and young adults the opportunity to participate in interactive writing games, to generate new work, and to perform their work on stage alongside some of the greatest living writers. This year the festival is honored to welcome two time poetry laureate Robert Pinsky to the island, along with over 250 other writers of all shapes and sizes. By uniting the largest community of poets in the country and offering a unique setting for literary activity, the New York City Poetry Festival electrifies arts and literature and brings poetry to new light in the public eye.

Staged Reading | Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra


Instant Shakespeare company performs a staged reading of Antony and Cleopatra by Shakespeare.  Antony and Cleopatra (First Folio title: The Tragedie of Anthonie, and Cleopatra) is a tragedy by William Shakespeare.  The plot is based on Thomas North's 1579 English translation of Plutarch's Lives (in Ancient Greek) and follows the relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony from the time of the Sicilian revolt to Cleopatra's suicide during the Final War of the Roman Republic. The major antagonist is Octavius Caesar, one of Antony's fellow triumvirs of the Second Triumvirate and the first emperor of the Roman Empire. The tragedy is mainly set in the Roman Republic and Ptolemaic Egypt and is characterized by swift shifts in geographical location and linguistic register as it alternates between sensual, imaginative Alexandria and a more pragmatic, austere Rome.

Jazz | Jazz Pianist Who Has Played at the White House


Danny Mixon was first moved by the power of jazz from visiting the Apollo Theatre one night with his grandfather. Hearing the musicians that night inspired him to take up playing the piano. From then on, he started taking piano lessons and even received training from Sir Roland Hanna. This was all by the time Mixon was 13 years old. By the time he was 17 years old, he was invited to play with Sam Brown and Pattie Labelle and the Blue Bells. By age 19, he was playing with the Muse Quartet. After a long career of recording and playing, Mixon was honored by the National Jazz Museum in Harlem through a series called "Harlem Speaks" in 2004. This earned him an invitation to the White House for Black Music Month. Mixon is also an instructor with Jazzmobile and the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music

Preceded at 4pm by a pre-show panel called Brazil: The Transforming Power of Music to Overcome Times of Crisis.

Play | Romeo and Juliet: Shakespeare in the Parking Lot


This popular New York summer institution is now in its 25th year. Its concept--presenting Shakespeare plays with a "poor theater" aesthetic in a working parking lot--is now widely imitated around the US and around the world, with productions as far away as New Zealand. The Drilling Company, led by Artistic Director Hamilton Clancy, has produced the attraction since 2005. The play exquisitely demonstrates the futility of partisanship, pleading for similar people to stop killing each other for reasons they no longer remember. Director Lukas Raphael will set the play in New York in the early 1990's, with the Montagues and Capulets imagined as families of a Lower East Side neighborhood. In this concept, the Capulets (Juliet's people) are long standing stewards of the neighborhood. Romeo's Montagues, on the other hand, are upwardly mobile, eager to rise above it.

Concert | Look at My Soul: The Latin Shade of Texas Soul


San Antonio comes to NYC at this evening of Chicano soul. The brainchild of writer-producer-musician Adrian Quesada, Look at My Soul celebrates the musical contributions of Chicano soul singers and session musicians in the 1950s and ‘60s, including Tejano trailblazers Johnny Hernandez and Ruben Ramos, who will join Quesada and the band onstage. Long overlooked by mainstream music history, these gems reveal a rich mix of influences: blues, Latin jazz, and rock ‘n’ roll, as well as traditional Mexican music like norteño and mariachi. Lively takes on classic tunes will have you on your feet as multiple generations of unsung musical heroes celebrate the unique sound of Texas. Fresh off their coronation as Best New Band at the 2019 Austin Music Awards, Austin-based psychedelic soul band the Black Pumas open the night, with singer-songwriter Eric Burton and Quesada on guitar. Following their funky bold sound is soul veteran and Daptone artist Lee Fields. Fields has been performing for 50 years and now—along with his longtime band the Expressions—stands at the forefront of the soul revival with a new album, It Rains Love.

Jazz | Poetic Jazz Trumpeter


Jacob Varmus left his hometown, San Francisco, in 1991 to go to the University of Iowa. Like many before him, he had high hopes of coming of age as a poet while cruising the vast American heartland. He saw language and experience as the tools to probe the deepest layers of the human psyche. In his first year he was admitted to the undergraduate writers' workshop where he studied with Jorie Graham. As he produced poems unremittingly and charted the labyrinthine maze of academic life as an English major, he also played trumpet devotedly, getting a good classical foundation with David Greenhoe. Although not set on a career in music he was nonetheless engrossed in the music of the great jazz trumpeters, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, to name a few. Chet Baker and Woody Shaw were also early favorites and of special import to his trumpet sound then and now.

Dance Performance | What The Day Owes To The Night: A Combination Of Genres From French Algerian Choreographer


The French-Algerian choreographer Hervé Koubi brings his signature work to the Bandshell with Compagnie Herve Koubi: the muscular and astonishingly kinetic evening-length What The Day Owes To The Night. The piece, bristling with energy and powerful images that evoke Orientalist paintings and Islamic architecture, features 12 French-Algerian and African dancers and combines capoeira, martial arts, hip hop, and contemporary styles. “The juxtaposition of contrasting speeds and shapes is mesmerizing. And the virtuosity ... is a touch of theatrical magic” (The New York Times). Hervé Koubi started his studies in dance in Cannes, and pursued his development at the Centre International de Danse Rosella Hightower in Cannes, then with the Opéra de Marseille. Koubi grew up unaware of his Algerian heritage; learning about it at age 25 from his father on his deathbed. That information sent Hervé Koubi on a personal and artistic journey. Made up of dancers primarily from North Africa with street dance backgrounds, Compagnie Hervé Koubi is the result of that journey.

Play | The Bacchae: The Classical Theatre of Harlem Presents Euripides’ Classic Tragedy


Set in the modern era, Dionysus (God of wine and ecstasy) returns to his hometown in order to clear his mother’s name and punish the insolent city for not allowing its citizens to worship him. The clash between Dionysus, played as a modern-day rock star and his cousin Pentheus, the uncompromising and moralistic king of the city, examines the consequences of a general public that blindly follows two vastly different leaders. Dionysus represents unbridled freedom and excess while on the other end of the spectrum, Pentheus epitomizes excessive law, order and rigidity. As society slides into fear and tribalism, its citizen’s rationale becomes clouded as they blindly take orders and pick sides rather than seek moderation and rationality. CTH’s interpretation is a lush and modern version of the classic Greek tragedy that tackles the ills of a culture obsessed with celebrity worship, social media and fear of the other, causing people to lose the ability to see the truth — that people in power are fallible…until it’s far too late. A New Version by Bryan Doerries. Directed by Carl Cofield. Choreography by Tiffany Rea-Fisher. Thursdays - Sundays, July 11-28, 2019
