Classical Music | Grammy-nominated choir and orchestra perform Boulez and more


Grammy-nominated choir of Trinity Wall Street; NOVUS NY, orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor; Sarah Brailey, soprano; Kirsten Sollek, contralto. Program Boulez (1925-2016) Le Marteau sans maître (1954) Felsenfeld (b.1970) Astrophysical Mass (2015) About the Performers Grammy-nominated interpreters of both early and new music, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has changed the realm of 21st-century vocal music, breaking new ground with an artistry described as “blazing with vigour…a choir from heaven” (The Times). The ensemle has been described as “thrilling” (New Yorker), “musically top-notch” (Wall Street Journal), and “simply superb” (New York Times). NOVUS NY is Trinity Church Wall Street’s contemporary music orchestra, under the leadership of Trinity’s Director of Music, Julian Wachner. Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” its members perform new music from all corners of the repertoire, meeting “every challenge with an impressive combination of discipline and imagination” (New York Classical Review). Music director Julian Wachner has been variously described as “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious,” (Boston Globe), having “splendor, dignity, outstanding tone combinations, sophisticated chromatic exploration…a rich backdrop, wavering between a glimmer and a tingle...,” (La Scena Musicale) being “a compendium of surprises,” (Washington Post) and as “bold and atmospheric,” while having “an imaginative flair for allusive text setting,” and noted for “the silken complexities of his harmonies” (New York Times). He has made guest appearances with such major organizations as the San Francisco, New York City, and Glimmerglass Opera, the New York and Hong Kong Philharmonic and many more. Hailed by The New York Times for her “radiant, liquid tone,” “exquisitely phrased,” and “sweetly dazzling” singing, soprano Sarah Brailey has performed at Carnegie Hall, with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and more. Kirsten Sollek has been called “…an appealingly rich alto” and “…true contralto” by The New York Times, and a singer with “elemental tone quality” by The Philadelphia Inquirer. About the Program First performed in 1955, Le Marteau sans maître by Boulez sets the surrealist poetry of René Char for contralto and six instrumentalists. Daniel Felsenfeld's Astrophysical Mass received its world premiere performance by Trinity’s Choir and resident ensemble NOVUS NY, under Wachner’s baton in 2015.

Discussion | Objects of Study: Methods and Materiality in Theatre and Performance Studies


The multiple potential meanings of “object” within theatre and performance studies point to questions about the relationship between knowledge and materiality. With this conference, they issue a challenge to the common understanding of scholarly work as focused on an “object of study.” They seek to destabilize the terms “object” and “study” to explore how the ways in which we conceive of objects and materiality might influence the framework of our discipline. Are they, as scholars, engaging in acts of objectification? How do the objects also act upon us? This student conference is organized by the Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association and will host working groups of emerging scholars during the day, followed by a roundtable with Katherine Behar (Baruch College, CUNY), Maaike Bleeker (Utrecht University, Netherlands), Rebecca Schneider (Brown University), Soyoung Yoon (The New School), and a performance by Larissa Velez Jackson (LVJ Performance Co.). 5:30pm Roundtable 7:30pm Performance

Author Reading | Barnard professor Caroline Weber discusses her book Proust's Duchess: How Three Celebrated Women Captured the Imagination of Fin de Siècle Paris


Geneviève Halévy Bizet Straus; Laure de Sade, Comtesse Adhéaume de Chevigné; and Élisabeth de Riquet de Caraman-Chimay, the Comtesse Greffulhe—these were the three superstars of fin-de-siècle Parisian high society. Tracing these women’s trajectories through the masked balls, shooting parties, moated castles, and glittering salons of the French nobility, Caroline Weber paints a vivid portrait of a rarefied, exclusive milieu that the outbreak of the First World War would soon destroy forever.

Classical Music | Pieces for lute and baroque guitar by "the compelling guitarist” - New York Times


Arash Noori has gained a reputation as a versatile musician, with a repertoire ranging from early to contemporary music. Performing on a variety of lutes and guitars, Arash has been a core-member of the chamber-vocal ensemble Cantata Profana. Arash has served the group’s “intrepid and unexpected concerts” (The New Yorker), performing on a wide range of fretted plucked instruments—in a manner described as making “toggling between the two niche genres of early music and new music seem as straightforward as switching bows. (It’s not.)” (Boston Globe)

This tour will tell the story of the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, and examine its ever-present historical, technological, and cultural impact.

Discussion | An Attempt to Become Modern: A Discussion of Incomplete Architecture


A discussion of specific incomplete architectural and urbanistic projects in Venezuela, Brazil, and Cuba. From the Helicoide in Caracas to the schools in La Habana, Professor Iliana Cepero (The New School), independent cultural historian Celeste Olalquiaga, and artist Gustavo Prado will be focused on interrupted and inconclusive buildings that account for transformations at the political and social level. These examples raise the question of a paradigmatic way of planning in Latin America. As Caetano Veloso says in his song "Fora de Orden," “here everything looks like it is still construction and it is already a ruin.”

Lecture | The history of mental health through photographic documentation


When Willard Psychiatric Center closed in New York’s Finger Lakes in 1995, an employee discovered a large collection of suitcases in storage in an attic. Many of these pieces of luggage contained the personal belongings of former patients. Renowned photographer Jon Crispin has completed his multi-year project to photograph these suitcases and their contents, which he described in a previous RIHS lecture in  2016. The photos offer a window into the lives and personal stories of patients admitted between 1910 and 1960. Learn about the scope and conclusion of the suitcase project and view the stirring photographs in Crispin’s lecture.

Author Reading | Mistaken Identity: Race and Class in the Age of Trump


Whether class or race is the more important factor in modern politics is a question right at the heart of recent history’s most contentious debates. Among groups who should readily find common ground, there is little agreement. To escape this deadlock, author Asad Haider turns to the rich legacies of the black freedom struggle. Drawing on the words and deeds of black revolutionary theorists, he argues that identity politics is not synonymous with anti-racism, but instead amounts to the neutralization of its movements.

Play | Shakespeare's Henry V by Obie Award-winning director


Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York.
