Concert | (IN-PERSON, outdoors) Cloudsplitter: Performance with a Dozen Brass Instruments


Cloudsplitter, for a dozen brass instruments, is a community-directed performance. Much of the 20 acres of the park will be utilized as the performers begin spread out throughout the park. Slowly, over the course of the 40-minute performance, they will come together in small groups and then finally into a complete group, a visual and aural harmony. Along with the traditions and histories that the players bring to the performance, the performance around the mythic persona of radical abolitionist John Brown. The title, Cloudsplitter, is a reference to the author Russell Bank's novel on John Brown, which alludes to the highest point in New York State (Mt. Marcy) also known as, Tahawus, a word some translate as "Cloudsplitter". John Brown's favorite hymn, "Blow, Ye Trumpets, Blow!", as well as the Civil War era March "John Brown's Body" will be used as a centering device for the performance, a reference point to construct the harmonic and melodic content of the musical work.

Author Reading | Unless: The Seagram Building Construction Ecology (virtual)


In his new book, Kiel Moe, professor of Architecture at McGill University, dissects the construction ecology, material geographies, and world-systems of the most modern of modern architectures: the Seagram Building. In his critical analysis of the environmental impact of architecture and urban real estate, Moe focuses on how humans and nature interact with the thin crust of the planet through architecture and how the immense material, energy and labor involved in building require a fresh interpretation of the ecological and social potential of design. He argues that unless architects begin to describe buildings as terrestrial events and artifacts, they will―to our collective and professional peril―continue to operate outside the key environmental dynamics and key political processes of this century.

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.
