Discussion | How Technology Can Shape Everyday Life to Be Healthier


We live in an age of smartphones, apps, Fitbits, smart watches and other gadgets that can be harnessed to help us become healthy. Since 2014, more than $16 billion has been invested in 800 startups in the “digital health” space. But what if the role for tech to improve health goes beyond getting us to change our behavior, to adhere to our medication regimens or to improve our care experiences? What if the role of tech runs deeper? Lori Melichar and Steve Downs of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation lay out the case for tech to focus on changing the experience of daily lives at a fundamental level and then lead a group discussion to elicit hunches about the interplay of tech, life and health.

Author Reading | Ideas Have No Smell: Three Belgian Surrealist Booklets


Ideas Have No Smell is a new edition of little-known gems of the Belgian Surrealist movement. This is a reading by translator M. Kasper and a dada-performance of Paul Nougé’s visual poems by Georgia Faust, Dikko Faust, Tracie Morris, Michael Barron and Alexandra Tatarsky followed by a discussion. The Belgian Surrealist movement, like its contemporary French cousin, included both visual artists—René Magritte most famously—and writers, who were also its theorists. They shared with the Parisians a fierce commitment to personal, political, and aesthetic liberty, and to humor, surprise, and transgression as artistic strategies, but they parted company when it came to the unconscious and the occult.

Play | Lysistrata: Fresh, Fast-Paced Comedy Inspired by Aristophanes


This fresh, fast-paced comedy inspired by Aristophanes' play, follows Lysistrata, an Athenian housewife, who calls for the women of Greece to help end the Peloponnesian War. She proposes a radical plan: all Greek women must refuse to engage in love-making until the men see reason, lay down their arms and come home to lie down with their wives in peace. The women agree to make the sacrifice and all hell breaks loose as men wander the country in an agony of unsatisfied lust. Will Lysistrata and her crew accomplish what the politicians could not? This college production is adapted by Ellen McLaughlin and directed by NJ Aguwna.

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.

Classical Music | Music of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance


A wide variety of music from across the centuries--including Perotin (c1160-1230), Magister Piero (c1300-1350), Mattheus Pipelare (c1450-1515), Jacobo Peri (1561-1633), Henry Purcell (1659-1695), Johannes Petz (1664-1716), Giovanni Pergolesi (1710-1736), Marie Therese Paradis (1759-1824) and others. Most of the pieces are American premieres, and all are very rarely performed. The connection between the wide range of pieces will become apparent as the program unfolds.  About the ensemble Collectio Musicorum ("collection of music") is one of the most adventurous ensembles, presenting music heard nowhere else. Founded by Artistic Director Dr. Jeff S. Dailey, its motto is "presenting the best performances of music from the earliest of times."
