Dance Performance | Dancing with the Future: Fusing Dance and Game-Playing


Dancing with the Future is a production that pushes the boundaries of art and science, fusing dance, evolutionary dynamics, and an interactive game. It explores the mechanisms of cooperation and investigates a question that is at the heart of all sustainable development, yet remains widely elusive because it entails a moral component that cannot easily be assessed: Are humans able to cooperate with future generations? In other words, what planet are we willing to leave behind for the people who will come after us? The concept was devised by Martin Nowak and Gloria Benedikt; the choreography was headed by Gloria Benedikt, Mimmo Miccolis, Henoch Spinola, and Sophia Isidore. The performance will be accompanied by a stage game designed by Piotr Magnuszewski.

Symposium | Towards Arab Dramaturgies


With a focus in this symposium on Arabic dramaturgies, they hope to begin to answer these questions. As a term that bridges the ideas and practice of contemporary performance, dramaturgy draws our attention to the process of artistic production. It explores the notion that process is performance and invites us to look at the question of how artists connect ideas and forms in their work. This symposium will feature research papers, artist talks and roundtable events.The organization committee will select papers that will be presented in 15-20 minute sessions during the symposium next to artist talks and panels. In addition to this, the sessions and papers will be compiled in a publication/book that will be generated from the discussions at the convening.

Lecture | Colonial Logic in Latin American and Caribbean Cities


Cartographic and literary depictions of colonial Latin American and Caribbean cities tell many stories; of bustling port towns, economic hubs, and administrative colonial centers. Embedded within these narratives are also stories of competing geographies and the enslaved and free black peoples who moved within them. This seminar presentation serves as an entrance into one of the many faces of the black urban Atlantic. It uses Havana as a case study to explore the contested geographies of port and mainland spaces. Speaker Guadalupe García specializes in colonial Latin America and the Caribbean. Her research interests include colonial cities, urban space, and legal topographies. Her first book was published in 2016 with the University of California Press and is entitled Beyond the Walled City: Colonia Exclusion in Havana.

Discussion | A Life Among Legends : Broadway performer in a conversation with NY Times critic


Glory Van Scott grew up in privilege, the daughter of a Chicago physician and his socialite wife. And then, in 1955, when she was just a girl, her cousin, Emmett Till, was murdered. Even through her anger, Glory knew that if she lay down in the mire and horror of her family tragedy, she would sink. Following this realization, Van Scott grew up to be principal dancer with the Katherine Dunham, Agnes De Mille, and Talley Beatty Companies, joined American Ballet Theater, performed on Broadway, movies, and television, and educated and inspired new generations of empowered young men and women. Help us celebrate Dr. Glory Van Scott and the release of her memoir Glory: A Life Among Legends. New York Times Critic, Jennifer Dunning writes about Dr. Glory, excerpted from the new book: Glory A Life Among Legends by Dr. Glory Van Scott.

Discussion | Embodying Heaven: Curating the Space Between Fashion and Faith


The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s history-making exhibition Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination (closing October 8th) explores how the Catholic imagination has shaped the creativity of designers and how it is conveyed through their narrative impulses. These impulses are reflected in the organization of the exhibition, which unfolds as a series of short stories told through conversations between religious artworks in The Met collection, both at the Met Fifth Avenue and the Met Cloisters, and fashions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Jessica Glasscock, Research Associate at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, will be in conversation with Fiona Dieffenbacher, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design.

Concert | Sonic Landscapes, Pointillistic Textures, and Angular Melodies


Led by the "fiery alto saxophonist and prolific composer” Aakash Mittal (Minneapolis Star Tribune), the Awaz Trio sculpts sonic landscapes, pointillistic textures, and angular melodies from Indian and American improvised music. Their debut project, Nocturne, is a series of pieces that deconstructs five Hindustani evening and night ragas. The colorful dissonances, meditative silences, and punctuated rhythms that emerge paint a unique picture of the night. At times the music evokes the meditation of a world at rest, night terrors conjured by the imagination, and the slow cadence of blue light melting into darkness. Nocturne is part of the trio's mission to create new work that explores the concept of Awaz, a Hindi-Urdu word that changes meaning between sound, noise, and voice depending on the context.

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.
