All events, things to do on Saturday, October 5, 2019 are free unless otherwise noted.

Workshop | Morning Fitness


One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can't be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water.

Performance | Performance for One: Slippery Memory


Performance for One is a one-on-one performance event written and directed by Edward Einhorn, presented in 10-minute slots at venues across Manhattan. The performance is about memory, but even more so, it is about relationship between performer, audience member, and author. What is the responsibility of the audience member, and how is it felt differently when there is only one audience member? Who is the story teller, the author or the performer? What happens to a memory that two people share after one of those people is gone? Presented by Untitled Theater Company.

Discussion | Turning Towards a Radical Listening: How Our Lives Are Shaped by Language


In Turning Towards a Radical Listening, James Allister Sprang will develop a sculptural sound-based installation over the course of a five-week residency. The project begins with a series of conversations between Sprang and poets M. NourbeSe Philip, Rachel Eliza Griffiths, and Tracie Morris considering how our lives are shaped (if not, in a sense, programmed) by language.  These conversations will be recorded, with the resulting files featured in Sprang’s live performances as the artist runs them through voice-to-text software and other applications to highlight—and potentially to make new meaning from—algorithmic alterations and glitches. M. NourbeSe Philip: Saturday, October 5, 4pm Rachel Eliza Griffiths: Wednesday, October 9, 7pm Tracie Morris: Saturday, October 12, 4pm
