Conference | The Future of the Left in the Americas


Across Latin America, the “pink tide,” which saw a range of left governments come to power over the last two decades, is in retreat. At the same time, new, left-wing electoral and social movements have emerged in many countries in Latin America as well as the United States. It is a critical time to reconsider what limitations and accomplishments left governments and movements across the region have had in recent years, and how they can build on these lessons in the pivotal years ahead.  Join Dissent magazine for two days of discussion with scholars, activists, and journalists from across the Americas about the challenges and opportunities for left politics in the region today.

Tour | Brooklyn Cultural District Walking Tour


The Brooklyn "Cultural District" is growing: with the recent openings of the sparkling new Theatre for a New Audience and the BRIC Arts Center, along with the expansive Gotham Market and other destination restaurants on Fulton Street, the promise of a major new cultural district in Brooklyn is finally being realized. But beyond the new, are institutions that have excelled here for years: from the Irondale Ensemble, to MoCADA (Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts); from BAM Harvey to Greenlight Bookstore to Spike Lee's 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks. This two-hour guided walking tour allows you to experience the old, the new, and what's to come! Learn how this concentration of venues and people is shifting the cultural landscape of the borough and the city, while you discover the surprising historical core: a flourishing Fulton Street arts center, of more than a century ago. Over the 120 minutes, you will stroll through the gorgeous brownstone-dotted streets of Fort Greene, past both spontaneous and commissioned street art, to see where more than a dozen spaces and locations have already made the Brooklyn Cultural District a major arts destination for performances of every type, large and small. Adding to the Brooklyn cultural experience, "pop-up" performances by Fort Greene's American Opera Projects, accompany the tour. Tour Leader Dr. Ron Janoff is a licensed tour guide, a professor of Classics, Coordinator of the Rockwell Place Community Garden in the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District, and a long-time Fort Greene resident. He has led walking tours of Brooklyn and Manhattan for more than 25 years.

Classical Music | Other Dances: works by Chopin, Schumann and Liszt


In 1831, Robert Schumann, writing as a music journalist, launched Frédéric Chopin’s international career with "Hats off, gentlemen! A genius."  In 1863, Franz Liszt, mourning Chopin’s death, penned a surprising biography of his rival, proclaiming him “Poet of a mournful soul.” In the twentieth century, Chopin’s music haunted the imagination of choreographer Jerome Robbins, who returned again and again to the Romantic composer’s Mazurkas, Waltzes, and Nocturnes in ballet masterworks like Dances at a Gathering. Internationally acclaimed pianist Evelyn Chen performs and curates the first in a series of afternoon concerts, inspired by Jerome Robbins’ love of music. A recital of chamber masterworks by Schumann, Liszt, and Chopin, is prelude to a screening of performance and rehearsal footage of Robbins’ Other Dances, an intimate set of Chopin ballet duets, first presented at a Library benefit performance in 1976. Program Schumann (1810-1856) Davidsbündlertänze, Op.6  Liszt (1811-1886) Variations on a theme of Bach "Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen" Chopin (1810 - 1849) Mazurka, op. 17, no. 4 Chopin (1810 - 1849) Mazurka, op. 41, no. 3 Chopin (1810 - 1849) Waltz, op. 64, no. 3 Chopin (1810 - 1849) Mazurka, op. 63, no. 2 Chopin (1810 - 1849) Mazurka, op. 33, no. 2

Lesson | Democracy and Voting Rights in the United States: A Contested History


This course will interrogate the history of democratic participation in the United States, with an emphasis on disparities in access to the ballot, racial discrimination, and violence, which continue to exclude voters from the franchise.  The course will start with an overview of the historical development of democratic inclusion, exclusion, and participation in the United States, and then focus on how social, political and economic institutions intersect with and inform this development. The second half of the course will focus on the ways that democratic participation in the United States is mediated and informed by the carceral state, the regulation of citizenship, political power, wealth, redistricting, and contemporary voter suppression efforts. The class will conclude with a discussion of current efforts to secure and expand voting rights in the United States, focusing on a selection of promising innovations, reforms, and movement building projects.   Saturdays, October 6, 20, 27, November 3, and 10 from 3:00 - 4:30pm.

Performance | Antigone in Ferguson: Sophocles and Choral Music


Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Each week will feature a different group of actors. Tuesdays through Saturdays, September 13-October 13, 2018.

The musicians of Septeto Santiaguero are the leading exponents of son music, the sizzling fusion of African rhythms and Spanish-influenced melodies that flourished in Cuba at the turn of the 20th century. Winners of the 2015 Latin Grammy Award for Best Traditional Tropical Album, the Santiago de Cuba natives have broken new ground, collaborating with salsa stars Rubén Blades and José Alberto “El Canario” while remaining true to the glorious son tradition. Led by Fernando Dewer, who plays the tres (a guitar-like instrument), Septeto Santiaguero’s irresistible sound is bolstered by soulful vocals, trumpet, guitar, bass, and percussion.

Author Reading | A Fractured Life: Women and the Culture of Silence


We come from a culture of silence. A culture that has shrouded us with this cloud of clear demarcations, that all good things are told to the outside world and all things bad are kept inside your own world. For women, this is doubly true. They are supposed to be the strength, the keeper of secrets and the face of acceptance. This needs to change. With author Shabnam Samuel.

Opera | The Mile-Long Opera: 1000 singers perform


1000 singers from across New York will come together for the first-ever performances of The Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7 o'clock. A sweeping choral work will immerse audiences in the personal stories of hundreds of New Yorkers about life in this rapidly changing city. The conversations, centered on the meaning of 7:00 pm, reveal a vast spectrum of feelings and perspectives—and, by extension, represent the diverse character of the city’s inhabitants and their individual experiences. Conceived by composer David Lang. "David Lang has established himself as a master of powerful, large-scale public music through ambitious projects like “the public domain,” for 1,000 voices at Lincoln Center, and “symphony for a broken orchestra,” for hundreds of broken school instruments in Philadelphia." - New York Times

Performance | Antigone in Ferguson: Sophocles and Choral Music


Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Each week will feature a different group of actors. Tuesdays through Saturdays, September 13-October 13, 2018.
