Sharyn Hahn lead you through some warm-up poses and a vinyasa flow as well as several short meditations, creative visualization, and intention-setting writing or sketching activities. You will leave feeling more flexible, relaxed, energized, with a mantra that you can carry with you throughout the week. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one, and they do have some if you need to borrow one for the class. Also bring a journal and something to write with. You will be writing a few times during the class, and if you prefer to sketch or want to do both, that is fine. Wear comfortable clothing, and feel free to bring a warm or cool drink to keep you hydrated (with a secure lid). All levels are welcome. If you have never done yoga you will be able to participate as well.

No experience is necessary though rowing does require some physical dexterity. Community Rowing events are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats built on site. The rows last, depending on river conditions and crew experience, between one and three hours. Please arrive on-time as the crews will be assigned before 1PM. Bring extra water, a hat, and sunscreen as you will be rowing outdoors in the hot sun. Rowing is weather dependent and will be canceled for high winds, rain, or thunderstorms. All participants must sign a waiver and be able to climb a ladder. Every Sunday from June 10-October 21, 2018.

The Shadow Circus: The CIA in Tibet reveals a little-known aspect of Tibet’s recent history: the country’s armed struggle against the invading forces of Communist China. Contrary to the generally held preconception of a deeply religious and peace-loving people, the Tibetans fought a long and bloody – though ultimately, unsuccessful – guerrilla campaign. They were aided in their efforts by an unlikely ally, the CIA. Directors: Tenzing Sonam and Ritu Sarin 50 min.

Michele Carlo, a redheaded, freckle-faced Puerto Rican raised in an Italian/Irish Bronx neighborhood, grew up as a double-outsider: too “white” for some of her family and a mystery to nearly everyone else. By turns heartbreaking and hilarious, her search for identity unfolds like a runaway #6 train amid the backdrop of a long-gone New York City. Adapted from her 2010 memoir Fish Out Of Agua: My Life on Neither Side of the (Subway) Tracks.                       View Larger Map   Date: Sunday, September 23, 2018 Time: 3:00pm EDT Location: Provincetown Playhouse Contact: Edward Carlson Contact ec10

Dance Performance |


This event is three site-specific commissions by luciana achugar, Laurie Berg, and Full Circle Souljahs (Ana "Rokafella" Garcia & Gabriel "Kwikstep" Dionisio). The artists will explore strategies for perception, amplification, and activism within the cacophonous landscape of the city. In New Mass Dance, achugar creates a site-specific procession inspired by the New Dance Group, a 1930s modern dance collective that taught classes near Times Square promoting social change through movement. In scape, Berg overlays a landscape of information over live performance via 3-D glasses, exploring Times Square as not just a place of spectacle and traffic but of visual messaging. Full Circle Souljahs' Behind the Groove is an homage to street and club dance trends from the '70s to today, giving visibility to an underground dance community long associated with Times Square. These three new works will be presented back-to-back so that audience goers can experience all three works on one evening or over the course of the weekend. 6pm: Laurie Berg 7pm: luciana achugar 8pm: Full Circle Souljahs Thursday-Sunday, September 20-23, 2018.
