Discussion | Theater in Quarantine (virtual)


A conversation with the creators of Theater in Quarantine about making a tiny closet into an expansive stage. Within a month of the shutdown of live performance in March of 2020, director, actor and playwright Joshua Gelb and choreographer and director Katie Rose McLaughlin had created a new performance space in Gelb’s 2’ x’ 4’ x8’ closet. Through the inventive use of the live video manipulation software, Isadora, Gelb, McLaughlin and their colleagues have demonstrated that digital technology and intimate live performance are not mutually exclusive. In this conversation with New York Times chief theatre critic Jesse Green, Gelb and McLaughlin discuss their work in the last year and give a behind the scenes look into how it was made.

The program will feature a preview of choral excerpts of music composed by the critically acclaimed British composer Errollyn Wallen and five time Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal, with a libretto by Diana Wege, from Earth Requiem (2020), a newly commissioned four-movement symphony that is one part of a multidisciplinary art project by the artist Diana Wege. The project, also titled Earth Requiem, incorporates music, literature, and painting. Throughout, it is interspersed with narration by the preeminent Environmental Justice scholar and author Dorceta E. Taylor, reading selections from her books, in the role of a modern prophet giving a sermon on the damage wrought by corporate greed, legal negligence, and environmental racism on underprivileged communities in the United States.

Author Reading | Let the Record Show: The Story of ACT-UP (virtual)


In its complex and intersectional power, ACT UP transformed the lives of people with AIDS and the bigoted society that had abandoned them. ACT UP New York, a broad and unlikely coalition of activists from all races, genders, sexualities, and backgrounds, took on the AIDS crisis with an indefatigable, ingenious, and multifaceted attack on corporations, institutions, governments, and individuals who stood in the way of AIDS treatment for all. Based on more than 200 interviews with ACT UP members and rich with lessons for today's activists, Sarah Schulman's new book is a revelatory exploration of the coalition's inner workings, conflicts, achievements, and ultimate fracture. Let the Record Show charts how a group of desperate outcasts changed America forever, and in the process created a livable future for generations of people across the world.

Play | Nowhere Man: The Story of Sculptor Isamu Noguchi (Zoom)


Pearl Harbor has been bombed. Hatred and fear of the Japanese is transferred to residents of Japanese heritage in the western United States who are forcibly displaced and incarcerated in internment camps. Half white, half Asian, Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi volunteers to go to a camp to use his skills to make a difference and to find a sense of belonging. Themes of racism, fear, injustice, and the place of the artist in society are as relevant today as they were 80 years ago. This is the third collaboration between playwright Steven Otfinoski and director Mark Graham who previously joined forces on Mortal Friends and Danse Macabre. A Q&A follows.

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.
