Performance | Grandma: Performance Art That Conjures the Past


From the artist, Cori Olinghouse: "Grandma is an evening-length performance where I conjure my late Grandma, Addie Lee Holder. Set in an American landscape of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, I excavate the effects of television, consumerism, and familial pasts as portals. Until the age of 94, Grandma delighted in her daily Twinkies and Mr. Pibb’s, acquired from the local Piggly Wiggly. She saved tourist sweatshirts wrapped neatly in plastic sheeting, collected crocheted Barbie clothes, refrigerator magnets, and a vast array of thimbles". Cori Olinghouse is an interdisciplinary artist, archivist, and curator. Her work has been commissioned by Danspace Project, New York Live Arts, BRIC Arts Media, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Movement Research, and Brooklyn Museum of Art. Recently, she was the recipient of The Award (2015-2016), and a participant in Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Extended Life Dance Development program made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (2016-2017).

Performance | Shakespeare for Everyone: Henry the Sixth Part 2


A presentation of The Second Part of Henry the Sixth. The play set during the lifetime of King Henry VI of England. Whereas The First Part of Henry VI deals primarily with the loss of England's French territories and the political machinations leading up to the Wars of the Roses, The Second Part focuses on the King's inability to quell the bickering of his nobles, the death of his trusted adviser Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, the rise of the Duke of York and the inevitability of armed conflict. As such, the play culminates with the opening battle of the War, the First Battle of St Albans. The Instant Shakespeare readings are set up to make Shakespeare accessible. The readings are usually without rehearsal, but they are on-your-feet Instant staged readings where the actors move around as much as they feel comfortable.

Performance | Grandma: Performance Art That Conjures the Past


From the artist, Cori Olinghouse: "Grandma is an evening-length performance where I conjure my late Grandma, Addie Lee Holder. Set in an American landscape of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, I excavate the effects of television, consumerism, and familial pasts as portals. Until the age of 94, Grandma delighted in her daily Twinkies and Mr. Pibb’s, acquired from the local Piggly Wiggly. She saved tourist sweatshirts wrapped neatly in plastic sheeting, collected crocheted Barbie clothes, refrigerator magnets, and a vast array of thimbles". Cori Olinghouse is an interdisciplinary artist, archivist, and curator. Her work has been commissioned by Danspace Project, New York Live Arts, BRIC Arts Media, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Movement Research, and Brooklyn Museum of Art. Recently, she was the recipient of The Award (2015-2016), and a participant in Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Extended Life Dance Development program made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (2016-2017).

Dance Performance | Of Granite & Glass: A Singular Dance Spectacle


Choreographer Catherine Galasso work is based on Boccaccio’s 14th century Decameron. The performance will combine her signature cinematic tableaux, whimsical nonlinear narratives, and charismatic performers to engage in a choreographic dialogue with the architecture and atmosphere of the venue. Performers will move between episodic and virtuosic movements on multiple planes, shaped closely by the grandeur and intrigue of the venue’s grand marble staircase, transforming the space into a singular spectacle. Catherine Galasso is a Brooklyn-based choreographer born in New York and raised in Italy. Past performances have been presented by places such as SFMoMA, Joyce SoHo, La MaMa, Danspace Project, MoCA Santa Barbara, the Bibliotheque National in Paris, the International Theater Festival in Kosovo, as well as underground Wall Street bank vaults and decaying 4-story homes.

Concert | Roots Music and Country-Pop


For more than 30 years, The Jayhawks "have crafted widescreen power-pop with country-western affectations, summoning an easygoing romanticism and a skyward sound that makes even their sad songs seem happy." (Portland Press Herald) They had a tremendous influence on the rise of alternative-country in Midwest, foreshadowing and inspiring such bands as Uncle Tupelo and the Gear Daddies. The sublime harmonies of North Carolina's Mandolin Orange, who "approach traditional roots music from a fresh, modern perspective," (Rolling Stone) guide us into the evening. With three albums since signing with Yep Roc in 2013, the co-ed duo has become a bastion of tightly woven Americana on the festival circuit. And to round out a perfect Saturday, Western Massachusetts quintet Parsonfield is a raucous, foot-stomping group who specialize in big choruses and move through different modes of contemporary roots music.

Performance | silent :: partner: Performance Art on Collective Memory and Monuments


silent :: partner explores the ideas of collective memory and its relationships to monuments. In front of the venue stands a bronze statue of George Washington, erected in 1882—the same year the Chinese Exclusion Act was passed. Through the piece, artist Enrico D. Wey ruminates on the immaterial parts of the venue and the structure of memory itself. He ultimately creates an intangible monument, not made of stone or metal, but rather of movement, sound and language. “What decides(,) what remains, what remains silent?” Wey asks. “As we pass through these walls that stood/stand/will stand before us, we occupy a space with silent partners. With them, we flow outward, not forward, and in hushed tones, speak volumes.” Composer and sound designer: Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca Lighting designer and production manager: Elliott Cennetoglu Costume designer: Oana Botez
