Screening | Maritime Film Festival


A film festival celebrating the rich coastal culture, maritime traditions, and lasting legacy of human engagement with the greater New York harbor. Featuring: The Storm (2022), by Coney Island History Project director Charles Denson. Denson rode out Superstorm Sandy in Sea Gate, where his apartment and car were destroyed by the storm surge. The 20-minute film shows rare and dramatic footage of the storm coming ashore on the evening of October 29, 2012, as well as preparations for the storm, the surge at Coney Island and Sea Gate, and the storm's aftermath. Everything is Different Now: Rockaway After the Storm (2015), In October 2012 Hurricane Sandy blew New York City’s historic boardwalk off its pilings and just as suddenly jutted Rockaway, the city’s remote barrier island, into the eyes of the world. Everything Is Different Now: Rockaway After the Storm documents the devastation caused by the largest storm-to-date ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean while unfolding the larger tale of a neglected jazz-era beach community, already struggling to re-define itself, now facing a more precarious existence on a low-lying island.

Screening | The Sea Does Not Reach Naples: Student Film on Life in Postwar Italy


This directing thesis production from Elena Vannoni is based on Anna Maria Ortese's 1953 collection Il mare non bagna Napoli, a lively representation of everyday life in post-WWII Naples, Italy. In the building of the Granili - a grotesque emblem of Naples in the 50s, the writerly persona of Ortese guides us through a child's experience of receiving her first pair of glasses, a woman's inner struggle upon the life-altering return of her lost love, and a melancholic hope to hold together a family broken by the war. Traveling with Ortese in the inferno-esque reality of post-war Neapolitan society, we experience in each story the painful grace that evokes the cuore pensante (ever-thinking heart) within ourselves.

Play | Eugene Ionesco's Exit the King: The World Changes, People Don't


What happens when the absurd becomes real, and reality becomes absurd? This production of Eugene Ionesco's pioneering absurdist comedy takes a close look at power, ego and terror, proving that while the world around us may change, human nature rarely does. Directed by Omar Sangare and featuring an ensemble cast of emerging young actors, playing multiple roles, audiences are drawn into a game where the King may set the rules but the actual winner is anyone's guess.

Play | A Double Bill of Shows by New and Old Playwrights


Two plays in one night! Sun: Dedicated to Malcolm X by Adrienne Kennedy and Blurring Shine by Zakiyyah Alexander. Adrienne Kennedy is one of America's greatest living playwrights, making her Broadway debut this fall with Ohio State Murders. Her fiercely individual and visionary work has been produced on stages around the world for over 50 years. Sun: Dedicated to Malcolm X was first produced in London during the late sixties and is an impassioned, sorrowful reverie about loss, frustration, and hope. The works of Zakiyyah Alexander have been produced at theatres across the United States and celebrated with numerous awards. Blurring Shine is her trenchant dissection of the intersection between hip-hop culture and corporate profits, as seen through the eyes of two half brothers at opposite ends of the class system in America. This double bill is directed by Jim Furlong

Concert | Latin American Music for Piano and Saxophone


Saxophonist Miguel Zenon teams up with his musical partner, Venezuelan pianist Luis Perdromo, in an excavation of the Cuban bolero, the popular Latin American musical style. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Miguel Zenon is one of today's leading jazz giants. A multiple Grammy nominee, MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellow, Miguel tours internationally as a bandleader, composer, and arranger, drawing inspiration from the Puerto Rican Songbook to contemporary jazz voices. Bolero is a genre of song which originated in eastern Cuba in the late 19th century as part of the trova tradition. Unrelated to the older Spanish dance of the same name, bolero is characterized by sophisticated lyrics dealing with love. It has been called the "quintessential Latin American romantic song of the twentieth century". Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis
