It was June 1968 and Senator Bobby Kennedy was running for President of the United States. The people adored him, but the political establishment and big business saw him as a threat. He had championed the poor and exploited, and wanted America out of the Vietnam War: so he had made many enemies, among them the Mafia and CIA.

Artist Serena Korda's Missing Time considers the history and mythology of the High Line as a “thin place”—a portal to other worlds—while exploring its transformation and invisible histories. The piece features the a cappella group Mouthful (Dave Camlin, Sharon Durant, Bex Mather, and Katherine Zeserson), who improvise across specific frequencies derived from the planets otherwise known as the “Music of the Spheres.” Simultaneously, the singers carry very low frequency receivers; these are devices designed by amateur radio astronomers hoping to listen to radio waves coming from the sun or outer planets. Visitors experience the singers’ voices and manipulated radio waves through stereo headphones that play a version of the sounds captured through a microphone located under the pathway and mixed by the artist.

Artists Sara Coffin and Dani Levine both work with distinct methods of reasoning. Things are measured, balanced, weighed, tested. Colors are matched or suspended. Surfaces are scouted and developed. But the work always exceeds its parameters, and they work this way knowing an accumulation will acure. In a kind of single-minded push forward revelation only appears when all pieces align on top of which they were meant.

Pranav Shah is a painter who was born in India. His interest lies in exploring abstraction. Being a formally trained interior designer, Pranav's boyhood passion for painting went into a slumber as he finished college. In 2005, it resurfaced, honing his skills through repeated practice, understanding the techniques that would allow him to get the textural, color and tonal effects exactly as he desired. He began painting shadows, the changing skies, watery reflections and water itself - these subjects allowed him to understand the complexities associated with making an abstract work. It allows him to become aware of what lifts the painting up as well as what works and what doesn't.

In her new memoir, Sick, Porochista Khakpour recounts a lifetime of misdiagnoses that left her riddled with anxiety about an unknown cause. When she ultimately learns of her late-stage lyme disease, she embarks on an arduous and emotional quest for a cure that takes her from New York to Los Angeles, New Mexico, and Germany, all the while meditating on the physical and psychological impacts of uncertainty, and the eventual challenge of accepting the diagnosis she had searched for over the course of her adult life. “This is a book that throws me into the time of my own being,” writes poet and novelist Eileen Myles. She will join Khakpour for a conversation about what it takes to write one’s way through illness.  Khakpour was an arts and entertainment journalist early in her career. She is a contributor of personal essays to The New York Times about her experiences as Iranian-American and Islamic popular culture. FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED.

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 Festival Chamber Orchestra; Lutz Rath, conductor; Robert Ingliss, oboe soloist. Program: Richard Strauss (1864-1949) Concerto in D major for Oboe and Small Orchestra (1945) Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) Symphony # 1 in C major, op. 21 (1801) Gyorgy Ligeti (1923-2006) Concert Romanesc (1951) About the Program The Concerto in D major for Oboe and Small Orchestra was written by Richard Strauss in 1945. It was one of the last works he composed near the end of his life, during what is often described by biographers, journalists and music critics as his "Indian summer." Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 in C major, Op. 21 was dedicated to Baron Gottfried van Swieten, an early patron of the composer. The piece was published in 1801 by Hoffmeister & Kühnel of Leipzig. It is not known exactly when Beethoven finished writing this work, but sketches of the finale were found to be from 1795. Ligeti’s Concert românesc or Romanian Concerto was completed in 1951 although it was not performed publically until 1971 due to the conservative confines of mid-century Hungary. in 1949, Ligeti began transcribing Romanian folk songs from wax cylinder recordings at the Folklore Institute in Budapest. These melodies, and the musical memories from his childhood in Romania, directly inspired his Romanian Concerto. He was able to hear the work performed during an orchestral rehearsal, but public performance was banned. While music based on folksong was permitted, even encouraged, Ligeti’s Concerto was considered too modernist.
