One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels.

Performance |
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).

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.

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

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.
