Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

The reclamation of spaces, ideas, and paradigms by female-identified and informed bodies and queer bodies embodying feminist ethos must be made paramount at this moment in American Life. Half Straddle’s Here I Go, pt. 2 of You is an open work period and colloquy that encompasses rehearsals and showings of new theater and video work; the launch of an online journal of performance writing; public lectures; and communal zine-making activities that will act as accessible discussion periods. Here I Go, pt. 2 of You engages company members, peers, and their artistic heroes to expand critical artistic discourse to interrogate and reflect on how we codify; and to consider why various performances are made and ask what their making means at this time. The installation includes art work by John Davis and Heidi Hahn, and is designed by Parker Lutz and Tina Satter. Series runs March 8-March 18. Speaker Schedule: Saturday, March 18 1:30–3:30pm Zine-Making Workshop with Enver Chakartash, Hanna Lea Novak, and Naomi Raddatz 4pm Julia Jarcho 5pm Sarah Schulman 6:30pm James Allister Sprang

How exciting, courageous and lucky to have reached a point in our lives when we have history. We have a past, knowledge and an experience unlike anyone else’s.  A life lived like no one else. This first class of a six-week course offers the opportunity to preserve this history, these memories and share them with others.   Participants choose a time, a memory, or a turning point in and write a monologue on that subject.  It is up to you how important or life changing the experience is that you wish to share.  You can even choose to rewrite history. How would you have acted differently, made different choices and had different outcomes. Would they have changed your life drastically for better or worse - or not at all? This class should be fun, creative, and a chance to express yourself, maybe for the first time. As a performer the instructor, Joannie Mackenzie, has the ability to open some doors that will enable you to feel more comfortable and more confident performing in front of a live audience or a camera.  Important: Registered participants should come prepared with a written story or ideas for 4-5 stories. Feel free to bring paper and pen/pencil. Participants will decide on a culminating performance of the monologues. The Instructor: Joannie Mackenzie is an actress, teacher and coach. She has performed in Film, Television, Regional Theatre and Off-Broadway.
