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.

Staged Reading | Shakespeare's Loves Labours Lost


Instant Shakespeare company performs a staged reading of Love's Labour's Lost by Shakespeare.  Love's Labour's Lost is one of William Shakespeare's early comedies, believed to have been written in the mid-1590s for a performance at the Inns of Court before Queen Elizabeth I. It follows the King of Navarre and his three companions as they attempt to swear off the company of women for three years in order to focus on study and fasting. Their subsequent infatuation with the Princess of France and her ladies makes them forsworn. In an untraditional ending for a comedy, the play closes with the death of the Princess's father, and all weddings are delayed for a year. The play draws on themes of masculine love and desire, reckoning and rationalisation, and reality versus fantasy. The Instant Shakespeare readings are set up to make Shakespeare accessible. The readings are usually without rehearsal, but they are on-your-feet Instant staged readings where the actors move around as much as they feel comfortable.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Absent in Body / farsa


Sarah Zapata: Absent in Body Zapata invites you to enter and linger in her large-scale textile installation—handwoven, hand-tufted, and sewn into shapes and textures that are a bit misshapen, and refreshingly different from familiar everyday objects. Zapata’s objects can hold our fantasies. A landscape in which we can spend time and experience ourselves with other bodies. Through the excess of labor put into this work, Zapata conveys an amorphous sense of time, honoring tradition with untraditional aspects of existence and queerness. Renata Lucas: farsa Brazilian artist Lucas creates “a theatre that performs itself” generating a montage of space and perception that disarms dynamics of totality. A large hanging curtain that spans across the main theatre—within which two smaller curtains are embedded—rotates and opens up passageways when activated by the viewer. As bodies move through the work, their limbs appear as disembodied pieces cutting through perceived truths and assumptions, leaving us in a state of farcical reality where nothing is static or stable.

A new musical comedy from the author of Broadway’s Sister Act, Cinderella, and Xanadu. It’s the height of the Cold War when Russian spies take over an ocean liner holding all of NATO. Leave it to lounge singers on board to save the day by teaching the communists to put down their Kalashnikovs and pick up singing, dancing, and comedy. The war is cold but the numbers are hot in this show with a ring-a-ding score that might just bring back the Rat Pack. A student production. Directed by: Douglas Carter Beane Book by: Douglas Carter Beane Music and Lyrics by: Douglas J. Cohen

Play | Truth: Absence of the Sacred


Truth exposes a lack thereof: an existence fraught with the absence of the sacred, devoid of any mystery, purpose or metaphysical worth. While the main character is not present, the scene is preoccupied with striving for knowledge and new creation, as well as by aggression, survival instinct and usurpation that claims a monopoly on truth. After the play, there will be a talkback and an afterparty. Conceived and directed by: Piotr Borowski Cast: Gianna Benvenuto, Magda Czarny, Michal Lorent

Lecture | The Ethics of the Next Billion Years


Society is currently taking actions whose impact goes far beyond the present generation. These impacts are vast in scale because they affect so many people, with future people outnumbering us by thousands to one. Yet those future generations have little representation in the world today. They can't bargain with us. They don't get a vote. In this talk, Professor Will MacAskill argues that our impact on future generations is the most important moral consideration in the world today. He introduces the philosophy of longtermism, which is concerned with ensuring that long-run outcomes go as well as possible, and discusses the ways in which we can benefit future generations, including by changing political incentives, guiding the development of new technology, and reducing the risk of human extinction. He discusses crucial considerations to help you work out what strategy to pursue, and gives advice on how you can choose a career to maximise your positive impact on the long run.

Play | To Life: Meet the Rosens


The Rosen family, battered and blessed, celebrates Jeffrey’s life as their hearts lie gasping on the floor. Backs are turned and accusations hurled as the Rosens come together and fall apart, bound by heartbreak and humor. Nobody escapes a good kick in the tuchas as they expose their foibles, confront their fears, and cling to their fragile connection amidst the chaos. The story is both elegy and eulogy to the death of a family and reminds us that we’re not alone. Written by Eve Lederman.
