The Zine and Photo Book Fair, entitled Common Silence, invokes the utopian notion of printed matter’s ability to enact social change through small-scale action to generate micro-policies. Through his selection of works, curator Mauricio Marcin questions how the gesture of fixing a word or image on paper has the potential to incite social change. In the last decade there has been a tremendous influx in self publishing throughout Latin America, particularly in Mexico. This is largely a result of artists utilizing independent publishing as a political and artistic platform for direct communications; thus allowing the self-published book, fanzine, and maquettes to function outside of commercial intermediaries and institutional entities and empowering artistic content to transcend traditional forms of production and dissemination. The selection of participants in the fair, all Latin American based, seeks to offer the public a concise overview of this multiplicity of editorial exercises, ranging from photography and contemporary art to poetry and literature.

Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Jitney, The Piano Lesson) directs a sumptuous new production of Othello. Set amid war and palace intrigue in the 17th-century Mediterranean, this classic drama about a noble Black Venetian general whose marriage is sabotaged by theater’s most infamous villain, Iago, remains Shakespeare’s most urgent and relevant tragedy today. A lush, romantic vision gives way to the violent tangle of love and jealousy, race and revenge in this must-see production. May 29-June 3; June 5-9; June 14-18; June 20-24.

The ensemle has been described as “thrilling” (New Yorker), “musically top-notch” (Wall Street Journal), and “simply superb” (New York Times). NOVUS NY is Trinity Church Wall Street’s contemporary music orchestra, under the leadership of Trinity’s Director of Music, Julian Wachner. Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” its members perform new music from all corners of the repertoire, meeting “every challenge with an impressive combination of discipline and imagination” (New York Classical Review). Music director Julian Wachner has been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious,” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, sophisticated chromatic exploration…a rich backdrop, wavering between a glimmer and a tingle...,” (La Scena Musicale) being “a compendium of surprises,” (Washington Post) and as “bold and atmospheric,” while having “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and noted for “the silken complexities of his harmonies” (New York Times). He has made guest appearances with such major organizations as the San Francisco, New York City, and Glimmerglass Opera, the New York and Hong Kong Philharmonic and many more. Praised by the New York Times for its “incisive, agile strength,” Downtown Voices is a semiprofessional choir made up of volunteer singers from the New York metro area and members of the Grammy-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street. Trinity Youth Chorus was featured in the film Love is Strange and performed as part of Fashion Week 2014. They were also heard in the 2008 film Doubt, starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffmann. The chorus has sung backup for Josh Groban and The Rolling Stones, and has been heard on Public Radio International, and CBS’s The Early Show.
