Reading | Voices of Ukraine: Impressions Around a War


The International Human Rights Art Festival presents a reading of Ukrainian writers -- one currently in the Ukraine and two in exile, from the recently published anthology Voices of Ukraine: Impressions Around a War. Featured will be: Nick Herring is a 35-year-old English teacher from Kyiv, where he remains to this day and intends to stay no matter what the future holds. After sending his family to another country for safety, he decided to write about the war in Ukraine. Nazarii Nazariv, PhD, is a translator, a linguist, and a researcher from a small village in Ukrainian Steppe who currently resides in Paris, France. His Ukrainian poems were selected for representative national anthologies, whereas his English poems and translations have appeared in Eratio, Eunoia, Literary Shanghai, and The Tiger Moth Review. Sofiia Krazhan recently completed her first year as a New York University undergraduate. Raised in Kyiv, she moved between countries in Eastern Europe before graduating high school in Finland and moving to the States to pursue an International Relations major, later hoping to earn a J.D & Ph.D in International Law.

Performance | A fire circle for a public hearing: Performance Art


Paul Maheke is an artist working in performance, video, sculpture, and installation. His performances are predominantly based in dance and movement, often accompanied by poetic voice-overs or scripts; they explore the ways that bodies can act as archives of history and personal experience. A fire circle for a public hearing develops Maheke’s ongoing engagement with the potential of the body as an archive; the performance addresses how history, memory, and identity are formed. In the work, three performers channel different characters as if possessed by ghostly entities. Their movements and dialogue explore hypervisibility and erasure as they play out in historical marginalization and contemporary political movements. Maheke brings this compelling performance to the US for the first time.

Book Discussion | The Miraculous True History of Nomi Ali: Omitted from Memory


Set in the Andaman Islands over the course of oppressive imperial regimes, Uzma Aslam Khan's novel is a complex, gripping homage to those omitted from the collective memory. Nomi and Zee are Local Borns--their father a convict condemned by the British to the Andaman Islands, their mother shipped off with him. The islands are an inhospitable place, despite their surreal beauty. In this unreliable world, the children have their friend Aye, the pet hen Priya and the distracted love of their parents to shore them up from one day to the next. Meanwhile, within the walls of the prison, Prisoner 218 D wages a war on her jailers with only her body and her memory. When war descends upon this overlooked outpost of Empire, the British are forced out and the Japanese move in. Soon the first shot is fired and Zee is forced to flee, leaving Nomi and the other islanders to contend with a new malice. The islands--and the seas surrounding them--become a battlefield, resulting in tragedy for some and a brittle kind of freedom for others, who find themselves increasingly entangled in a mesh of alliances and betrayals.

Discussion | Music on the Brain: The Brain in Tempo


As it’s often said, “timing is everything” and this is certainly true for our brains: countless neurons work together in intricate networks that enable us to go about our daily lives. Our neurons also enable us to engage life at different tempos, and this is a current focal point in the research of speaker Dr. Sumaira Zamurrad. She researches the neural networks that control different walking behaviors in the house fly. Join jazz artist-in-residence Helen Sung and Dr. Zamurrad as they explore the neuroscience behind experiencing life (and music!) from Adagio to Allegro.

Play | Richard III: Shakespeare Drama Outdoors


Tony Award nominee Robert O’Hara (Slave Play, The Public’s Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and storytelling genius with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare’s most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab arrives with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.
