Park Walk | (IN-PERSON) Foraging Tour: Sassafras, Spicy Field Pennycress and More


Because this park includes so many varied habitats, it's loaded with shoots and greens in late spring, and many of these are edible and medicinal. You'll find spicy hedge mustar, poor man's pepper greens, celery-, parsley-, and carrot-flavored goutweed, violet leaves and flowers.  You'll also find spicy field pennycress, another member of the mustard family, growing near corn-flavored chickweed. If there's been enough rain beforehand, the park is an excellent place for spring mushrooms. Chicken mushrooms, dryad's saddle, and wine-cap stropharias may be growing in abundance. The tour will last for about 4 hours. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing.

Performance | Global Forms Theater Festival: Gera sa Droga (War on Drugs) (virtual)


Gera sa Droga (War on Drugs) is a self-devised piece created by Filipina writer and performer Dorothea Gloria. Having been raised in a family filled with journalists, Gloria aims to translate news articles into stage performances. Gera sa Droga (War on Drugs) focuses on the current administration of President Duterte and his response to drug use in the Philippines. Gloria wants to highlight the different Filipino voices, from the victims of the drug massacre, to the family members left behind, to close friends and relatives, to the police that implement rules, to the journalists that cover the killings, to the president himself. This piece questions if peace and order can truly be attained through violence and killing.

Tour | Monet's Giverny - A Home and Garden (virtual)


Claude Monet lived and painted in Giverny from 1883 to his death in 1926. He purchased a house and property and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. He began painting the water lilies in 1899, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years. Monet gained much of his inspiration from his gardens and believed it was important to surround himself with nature and paint outdoors.

Author Reading | Moscow Monumental: Soviet Skyscrapers and Urban Life in Stalin's Capital (virtual)


Historian Katherine Zubovich will discuss her new book, an in-depth history of the Stalinist skyscraper. In the early years of the Cold War, the skyline of Moscow was forever transformed by a citywide skyscraper building project. As the steel girders of the monumental towers went up, the centuries-old metropolis was reinvented to embody the greatness of Stalinist society. In Moscow Monumental Zubovich explores how the quintessential architectural works of the late Stalin era fundamentally reshaped daily life in the Soviet capital.

One of the biggest hits of the 2019-20 season, Philip Glass's Akhnaten is the third installment in the composer's Portrait Trilogy focused on revolutionary figures from world history.

In her Met-debut season, Karen Kamensek conducts the hypnotic score, leading a cast that also features soprano Disella Larusdottir as Queen Tye, mezzo-soprano J'Nai Bridges as Nefertiti, and bass Zachary James as Amenhotep I.

Performance | chekhovOS: an experimental game: Film, Theater and Video Game Technology (Zoom)


The latest workshop from our Zero Gravity Virtual Theater Lab fuses film, theater, and video game technology to experiment in a new medium where viewers interact with the performers. Inspired by Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard and drawing from recordings of Chekhov's letters and dreams, this interactive online theater experience accesses the operating system behind both Chekhov's computer and the world in which his characters live, searching for happiness. This is a work-in-progress created during the pandemic, a way for artists to work through the themes of the play, the encroaching virus, and a moment of change in the world around us. Followed by live talkback with members of the cast and creative team.
