Fair | October 7th, 06:29AM: An Immersive Exhibition on Nova Music Festival Massacre


To celebrate the end of his two years of service as a medic in the Israel Defense Forces' paratrooper division, Tomer Meir joined 13 of his friends at the Nova Musica Festival on the weekend of October 6 in Re'im in southern Israel. It was his first ever music festival. "It was the best moments of my life. I can't explain the state we were in," the 21-year-old told the New York Jewish Week. "It was pure love -- people dancing, laughing, smiling. All the good stuff that we're living for." Until 6:29 a.m. on Saturday morning. The red alerts, the rockets and the running. "The music stopped. The rockets started. We started running for our lives," Meir said. Meir is a survivor of the Nova Music Festival Massacre, where Hamas militants killed 364 festival-goers and took at least 40 hotstages on the morning of Oct. 7. Six months after the attack, Meir is in New York sharing his story as part of an interactive exhibit about that day, which he says is helping him heal. The Nova Musical Festival exhibition, titled October 7th, 06:29AM, is an immersive step into what it was like to be at the festival when it was attacked. Screens show clips from the attack on Nova are displayed next to personal and camping items taken from the festival recreating the festival layout. The exhibit, which debuted in Tel Aviv for 10 weeks in December, was created by Israeli designers and cultural producers, many of whom were producers with the Nova Music Festival itself. It was brought to New York with the help of Scooter Braun, the Jewish-American music producer and philanthropist. The exhibit recreates the visuals and sounds of the Nova Music Festival massacre. But the New York version is in some ways "more intense," according to Yael Finkelstein, a volunteer who collected items from the Nova site and helped set up both the Tel Aviv and New York exhibit. New elements at the New York exhibit include dozens of video testimonies from survivors, Zaka volunteers and family members, as well as graphic raw footage taken on Oct. 7 from both festival-goers and Hamas militants. In addition, survivors of the massacre such as Meir and Sassi will be at the exhibit every day to share their stories and answer questions. Their goal, Meir said, is to show New Yorkers that the horror they experienced could happen to anyone.

Performance | PlaceHolder: Collaborative Performance Art


Kayla Hamilton and Kate Speer share an installation in dialogue with their performance project PlaceHolder–a collaboratively made experience that exposes how perception actualizes and strips identities. The installation will take up the themes of the performance project, which asks guests to consider the ways they meet, engage and “see” others. The installation draws attention to perception and perspective and the frequent disconnect between how we want to be perceived and how outside forces (people, society, strangers) impact perception.

Viva Deconcini Viva plays guitar like a flaming sword, a screaming train, a ringing bell, and a scratching chicken. She sings like if Freddy Mercury had been a woman. She is influenced by diverse artists and styles including Jimi Hendrix, Dolly Parton, NYC, disco and jam band music, and has played everywhere from Bonnaroo, the Monterey Jazz Fest and the Sydney Opera House. She has produced sell out music, burlesque and variety shows at The Slipper Room and Joe’s Pub and is one of the few females to be featured in Guitar Player Magazine. People’s Champs People’s Champs combines the hottest dance rhythms from West Africa and South America with New Wave synth tones, crafting them into indie songs with Stevie Wonder-esque lyrics. With their “crazy ass genre mash ups” (Blakbook), People’s Champs’ truly original sound is equal parts Sharon Jones, tUnE-yArDs, Os Mutantes, William Onyeabor and Prince. Critics are calling People’s Champs a “A dance party waiting to happen” (Consequence of Sound) and “…somewhere between Budos Band & the Flaming Lips” (Deli Magazine). The band is comprised of members of The Superpower Horns, studio horn section for Beyoncé Knowles. They arranged the horn lines on two of Beyoncé’s top albums, including the Grammy-winning song “Love on Top.” The Superpower Horns also toured internationally throughout 2016 with Boy George & Culture Club.

Book Discussion | Blood in the Cut: Miami's Underside


Sharp as a butcher knife gleaming in the Miami sun, Alejandro Nodarse's Blood in the Cut opens onto a deeply personal vision of the streets and swamps of Miami, where the roots are crooked but strong as mangroves. Iggy Guerra is out of prison, but his homecoming is anything but smooth. His beloved mother is gone, his grief-stricken father Armando is deep in debt, and they are about to lose the butcher shop that has been in their family for generations. Iggy must earn his father’s lost trust in order to save La Carnicería Guerra from the threats imposed by a new rival business, a vigilante activist, and big-game hunter Orin, who has dragged Armando into his dangerous money-making schemes deep in the Everglades, where more than secrets are buried. Iggy will wrestle with the beauty and the danger of the place he calls home as he tries to save his family—without losing himself forever.

Book Club | Blind Owl by Sadeq Hedayat


Written by one of the greatest Iranian writers of the twentieth century, Blind Owl tells a two-part story of an isolated narrator with a fragile relationship with time and reality. In first person, the narrator offers a string of hazy, dreamlike recollections fueled by opium and alcohol. He spends time painting the exact same scene on the covers of pen cases: an old man wearing a cape and turban sitting under a cypress tree, separated by a small stream from a beautiful woman in black who offers him a water lily. In a one-page transition, the reader finds the narrator covered in blood and waiting for the police to arrest him. In part two, readers glimpse the grim realities that unlock the mysteries of the first part. In a new translation that reflects Hedayat’s conversational, confessional tone, Blind Owl joins the ranks of classics by Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Kafka, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky that explore the dark recesses of the human psyche.

Film | Käthe Kollwitz: Images of a Life (1986)


Käthe Kollwitz was 47 years old and already a well-established artist when Peter, her youngest son, volunteered to join the German army in World War I and was killed two weeks later. This painful tragedy changed Kollwitz’s life and art forever. She became a radical pacifist; in her work, she reflected on her son and the meaning of war. After signing a petition against the Nazis, she was excluded from the Prussian Academy of Arts, and her art was classified as “degenerate.” Lonely and sick, Kollwitz spent the last days of her life near Dresden where she died at the age of 78 short before the end of World War II.  Director: Ralf Kirsten 95 min.

Concert | Composer/Saxophonist Envisions South African Democracy


South African composer and saxophonist Steve Dyer brings Visions of Ubuntu to Lincoln Center for an evening of remembrance and jubilant celebration of the indomitable human spirit. Propelled by the courage of South Africa's indigenous youth, June of 1976 marked a pivotal point in the national uprising against apartheid. Student revolutionaries protesting against Afrikaans as the medium of instruction in the classroom were met with deadly force by soldiers of the apartheid regime. Intergenerational leaders of the South African freedom struggle (including Mandela, Sobukwe, Tambo, and Biko) visualized a country where all people could live in harmony, drawing strength and inspiration from the traditional value system of ubuntu, embodying collectivism, harmony, and restorative justice. Nearly 50 years since the June 16 uprising and after 30 years of South African democracy, join us in recognizing ubuntu as a “life-philosophy concept" with the capacity to heal our troubled world.

Summer 1946. The Cousteau family--Jacques, his wife Simone, and their two children Philippe and Jean-Michel--reside in their beautiful house by the Mediterranean Sea. By day they dive, exploring the depths of the ocean, while by night they watch the stars. It's paradise on Earth. But Jacques is never content. He longs to explore the world beneath the sea and believes in the virtues of progress. With his invention, the Aqualung, his recently acquired vessel, the Calypso, and a crew of free-spirited adventurers led by his wife, Jacques is ready to delve where no man has been before.
