Author Reading | America in Tailspin: award-winning journalist and best-selling author discuss problems of the present day


Journalist and best-selling author turns to the past in an effort to understand the troubled present—and discovers the people who are quietly struggling to create a brighter future. Over the past half century, argues Steven Brill, values at the heart of American democracy have transformed themselves from national strengths into forces powering our decline. Major American institutions don’t deliver as they should; rifts between the vulnerable majority and the protected few grow wider; and principles such as meritocracy, innovation, due process, free speech, and the rule of law are weaponized against the people they were intended to serve. In his new book, Tailspin, Brill asks how we ended up this way, finding answers in an erosion of responsibility and accountability, an epidemic of shortsightedness, an increasingly hollow economic and political center, and millions of Americans gripped by apathy and hopelessness. But among it all, there are people fighting for change, those working quietly and effectively to repair the damages. Brill will discuss this and more with civic leader and author, Philip Howard.

Jazz | Upbeat Swing and Well-Loved Jazz Classics


Sean Mahony began to "earn his chops," as jazz colleagues might say, at New York's famed High School of Music and Art. He combined early training in the Dalcrose Eurhythmics techniques, with traditional schooling, into a unique musicality that he has brought to audiences. He studied trombone with the eminent "old man," Emory Remington at the Eastman School of Music. In 1987 Sean earned a Master's degree from Juilliard School of Music. He has performed, and recorded, with the New York Philharmonic, under the batons of Pierre Boulez and others, rendering the music of Richard Strauss and Edgard Varèse.

Book Club | Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights


Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë's only novel, was published in 1847 under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell". She died the following year, aged 30. Although the novel is now a classic of English literature, contemporary reviews were deeply polarised; it was controversial because of its unusually stark depiction of mental and physical cruelty, and it challenged strict Victorian ideals of the day regarding religious hypocrisy, morality, social classes and gender inequality. The novel has inspired adaptations, including film, radio and television dramatisations, a musical, a ballet, and operas.

Author Reading | Counter Institution: Buildings Where Activists Meet


In the midst of current debates about the accessibility of public spaces, resurfacing as a result of highly visible demonstrations and occupations, this book illuminates an overlooked domain of civic participation: the office, workshop, or building where activist groups meet to organize and plan acts of political dissent and collective participation. Author Nandini Bagchee examines three re-purposed buildings on the Lower East Side that have been used by activists to launch actions over the past forty years.

Author Reading | Pray the Gay Away: A Memoir of Coming Out


“Mom knows.” A simple text that would change two twin brothers’ lives forever. Coming out is hard. The struggle is ongoing, a daily part of life whether to a new friend, a co-worker, or most importantly yourself. Pray the Gay Away chronicles Michael and Zach Zakar as they face awkward sexual encounters, drug-fueled escapades, coming out to each other, and their biggest foe – Mom, a woman who not only gave birth to what she calls one regret – but two. The memoir hilariously and poignantly explores what it’s like growing up as gay, Iraqi twins in modern America.

The relationship between the United States and the countries of Europe has been a cornerstone of the liberal world order established during the Bretton Woods conference and in the wake of World War II.

Dance Performance | PRIVATE: Wear a mask when you talk to me: Improvisation and Intuition


A performance by artist and choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis stages banal and mutating gestures from myriad gendered references—including Greek Tsifteteli and Greek Zeibekiko dance. The work is inspired by Trisha Brown’s prescient 1983 work Set and Reset, as well as Marianne Wex’s 1979 Let’s Take Back Our Space: “Female” and “Male” Body Language as a Result of Patriarchal Structures, two works that challenge the relationship between improvisation and choreography, intuition, and socialized or coded gestures. This work was first presented in 2016 at the Festival DañsFabrik in Brest, France.
