Symposium | A Beautiful Journey to the Theory of Computation


Celebrate Christos Papadimitriou's contributions to science on the occasion of his 70th birthday, through a mix of talks, panels, and fun activities. One of world's leading computer scientists, Papadimitriou is best known for his work in computational complexity, helping to expand its foundations, methodology and reach. Using computation as a scientific lens, he has also made seminal contributions to biology and the theory of evolution, economics and game theory--where he helped found the field of algorithmic game theory, artificial intelligence, robotics, databases, networks and the Internet, and more recently the study of the brain.

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.

Performance | Oh Heroine How I Love You!: Modern Play Passing Through Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights


75 min. Writer, Director: Callie Nestleroth. Performer: Sara Page. Meet with Cathy Earnshaw in her world from Emily Bronte's classic tale Wuthering Heights, and be taken by her on a journey that goes beyond the confines of her book. Whether from the many film adaptations, or Kate Bush's singular song, Cathy and Heathcliff are infamous characters. But do we ever consider the effect they have on those who learn their story? Oh Heroine How I Love You! transports you into the book and onto the Moors, to voyage with Cathy in this interactive one-woman show. A ghostly character, Cathy's grasp of her reality is fraught, and as she catapults between worlds the audience is taken along for the ride. You feel as if you are reading a book that has come to life around you and in being immersed in her world are called upon to assist this character who is lost in her own adaptations. In learning who Cathy is, we learn who Emily Bronte is, and unlock this enigmatic author with questions about feminist agency and the ownership one has to tell their own story. No intermission, please be prepared to walk and interact with the performer.

Opening Reception | Saltern: Coastal Horizons


The type of saltern Florian Pumhosl is referring to is a coastal horizontal structure consisting of ramparts, canals, and plains. Composed of a network of basins divided across a surface, saltworks store seawater, which evaporates over time to leave behind a salt deposit. As Pumhosl notes, the saltern is a "man-made landscape between sea and inhabited territory with modules characterized by flow and stagnation." As an intervention into the seaside that modifies and inhabits the local terrain, the saltworks enact an abstraction that is perceived as natural. Following a morphological line of thought that adapts the spatial, temporal, and pictorial aspects of the saltworks, Pumhosl identifies the saltern as "an abstract image par excellence, because it is able to dissolve everything that appears manifest in it into relations."
