Forum | Going Big: Expanding Labor Rights for the 21st Century


Although union density is near an all-time low, labor activism has surged in many sectors. From adjunct faculty to video game developers, digital media workers, platform app drivers, and public school teachers, labor movement activism is growing in a number of key sectors. This is happening as many full-time jobs with benefits are disappearing, consumer/student debt is skyrocketing, the "gig economy" is expanding, and economic insecurity is increasing for American workers and families. Housing and child care costs - which heavily impact workers' income, wealth, and health - have also become more burdensome for many families. Under President Trump, a number of worker rights and protections have been weakened or denied. Featured speakers include: -- Randi Weingarten -- President of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) -- Steven Greenhouse -- Veteran New York Times labor journalist and author of the new book, Beaten Down, Worked Up: The Past, Present, and Future of American Labor -- Vincent Alvarez -- President of the NYC Central Labor Council A light breakfast will be served.

The father of Cuban nationalism, José Martí, himself a habanero, lived in New York City for 14 years (1881-1895), working as a journalist, poet, essayist, diplomat and, most importantly, revolutionary.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Discussion | Ruralism Dialogues


50% of the world’s population live in cities - 50% do not. This is an opportunity to discuss the relationship between country and city—not in opposition, as in “rural” vs. “urban,” but as associations between people and nature, settlement and landscape, society and its resources. With the steady advance of urbanization, we’ve witnessed a dissolution of the dialectical distinctions between city and countryside, center and periphery, culture and nature. Simultaneously, the romanticization of rural space as a site of the natural and of authenticity, as the victim of industrialization and urbanization, is coming into question. Rural regions—small towns, villages, landscapes, farms, hinterlands—can no longer be understood as places "left behind” by cities but instead are sites of production, inhabitation, knowledge, conflict -and design. Noah Chasin, Ziad Jamaleddine, Andrés Jaque, Kaja Kühl, and Galia Solomonoff in conversation about the “rural” as an emergent terrain for research, architecture and urban design.

Lecture | "in her arms she holds them": condoned kinship structures in a poetic Jewish/Black marriage...


In this talk, New Kinship Structures in New American Poetry, Elizabeth Goetz investigates the various views that Hettie Jones, a helpmeet Jewish woman, and LeRoi Jones, an FBI-targeted African American man later known as Amiri Baraka, present of their interracial marriage and their shared social scene. Reading texts written by LeRoi, Hettie, and the friends, like Frank O'Hara, who were their literary interlocutors together illuminates the inequalities their kinship structures, though inclusive in many ways, nevertheless condoned. She argues that the intertextual poetic network constituted by these texts serves as a metaphor for the alternative kinship network of friends and lovers it portrays.

Performance | Terra Matta: The Extraordinary Autobiography of a Sicilian Laborer


Terra Matta is adapted from the extraordinary autobiography of a Sicilian laborer at the beginning of the century, written between 1968 and 1975 on an old Olivetti. It is a monumental work: 1027 pages without spacing or margins. Terra Matta is the first-person account of the immense and intimate effort to emancipate and survive poverty; the human story of the protagonist flows in an extraordinary intertwining of major and minor history against the backdrop of the extremely poor rural Italy of the beginning of the century, surprised and torn by the Great War, the Italy of sacrificed youth, the disappointed Italy of a "fragile" victory. Based on the diaries of Vincenzo Rabito. Adapted and interpreted by Stefano Panzeri. In Sicilian with English supertitles.

Author Reading | Badges Without Borders: How Global Counterinsurgency Transformed American Policing


In this groundbreaking exposé, Stuart Schrader shows how the United States projected imperial power overseas through police training and technical assistance—and how this effort reverberated to shape the policing of city streets at home. Examining diverse records, from recently declassified national security and intelligence materials to police textbooks and professional magazines, Schrader reveals how U.S. police leaders envisioned the beat to be as wide as the globe and worked to put everyday policing at the core of the Cold War project of counterinsurgency.

Theater | Shakespeare's Measure For Measure


The Public's acclaimed Mobile Unit presents a bold new production of Shakespeare's Measure For Measure directed by LA Williams. Temporarily left in charge by the Duke, the upright and uptight Lord Angelo has decided to crack down on the city's debauchery, arresting young Claudio for impregnating his fiancee Juliet before their wedding. When virtuous Isabella, Claudio's sister, hears of his death sentence, she begs Lord Angelo for mercy. But hypocritical Angelo propositions her instead, leaving Isabella with an impossible choice: save her soul or her brother's life. In this timely production, lovers and leaders in disguise reveal the injustices of our justice system, and how those in power take advantage of those without it - asking the question, can the law be both just and merciful? The Public Theater's Mobile Unit is a reinvention of Joseph Papp's "Mobile Theater," which began in 1957. Papp's original touring company evolved into the New York Shakespeare Festival, and ultimately became The Public Theater. All of it was built on a simple idea: Culture belongs to everyone. This idea remains at the heart of The Public Theater's work to this day. The Mobile Unit still takes this mission out to the communities across New York City, providing free performances to all.

Continuing its commitment to bringing free Shakespeare to the community and strengthening audience engagement with the arts, The Public Theater will mount its Mobile Unit again this fall with a free three-week tour to venues across the city of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, directed by LA Williams. The complete cast features Jasmine Batchelor (Isabella), Nora Carroll (Escalus/Juliet), Toccarra Cash (Lucio), Alfie Fuller (Pompey), Adrian Kiser (Angelo), Gabrielle Murphy (Provost), Latonia Phipps (Mariana/Overdone), Grace Porter (Duke), and Phumzile Sitole (Claudio/Elbow). “Measure for Measure resonates with some of the greatest challenges of our time: injustice, abuse of power, redemption, and mercy. It ultimately asks: can or should the law be compassionate?” said Director of Mobile Unit Karen Ann Daniels. “It also initiates an exciting new chapter for Mobile Unit, the intentional gathering together to share stories as a catalyst for reflection and joyful celebration of our common humanity.” Measure for Measure features scenic design by Yu-Hsuan Chen, costume design by Asa Benally, and music composition by Jeffery Miller.

Ocampo worked quietly to perfect this novella over the course of twenty-five years, nearly up until the time of her death in 1993. The narrator's conflicted memory, as well as the intrusion of memories that are not her own, illustrate Ocampo's struggle with dementia in the last years of her life, and much like the author herself, here we find a narrator writing "against a world of conventional ideas." Forgotten Journey This collection of 28 short stories, first published in 1937 and now in English translation for the first time, introduced readers to one of Argentina's most original and iconic authors. With this, her fiction debut, poet Silvina Ocampo initiated a personal, idiosyncratic exploration of the politics of memory, a theme to which she would return again and again over the course of her unconventional life and productive career. With translators Suzanne Jill Levine, Katie Lateef-Jan & Jessica Powell
