Concert | The Sounds of the Dominican Republic


It’s Dominican Day when these three artists that embody the sounds of the island’s past and present come to the stage. Headliner “El Rey Supremo” Luis Vargas is a bachata star known for his sexually charged macho lyrics drenched in double entendre. It was in his band that Anthony Santos (another bachata king in his own right) got his start; they were among the first bachata artists to use the electric guitar in the late 80′s, revolutionizing the genre. He’s supported by El Gran Alcover, a rising reggaetonero who incorporates salsa, bachata, and merengue into his modern pop songs, and Grupo D’Ahora, a contemporary bachata group that stays booked and busy in the tri-state area.

La Guardia in 1942. Start times: 10:30am, 12pm

Book Discussion | Stanley Kubrick: American Filmmaker


David Mikics on his engrossing biography of one of the most influential filmmakers in cinematic history.  Kubrick grew up in the Bronx, a doctor’s son. From a young age he was consumed by photography, chess, and, above all else, movies. He was a self-taught filmmaker and self-proclaimed outsider, and his films exist in a unique world of their own outside the Hollywood mainstream. Kubrick’s Jewishness played a crucial role in his idea of himself as an outsider. Obsessed with rebellion against authority, war, and male violence, Kubrick was himself a calm, coolly masterful creator and a talkative, ever-curious polymath immersed in friends and family. Drawing on interviews and new archival material, Mikics for the first time explores the personal side of Kubrick’s films.An in-depth look at Christopher Nolan, considered to be the most profound, commercially successful director at work today, written with his full cooperation.

Dance Performance | 5 Iconic NYC Dance Companies


Five of NYC's most iconic dance companies--Ballet Hispanico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem--share the spotlight and an outdoor stage with dancers and pieces from across the companies. Participants: Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Cry by Alvin Ailey Choreography by Alvin Ailey Music: Alice Coltrane, Laura Nyro, Voices of East Harlem In 1971, Alvin Ailey choreographed the solo Cry as a birthday present for his mother on his stunning muse, the legendary Judith Jamison, who has taught the treasured role to subsequent generations of Ailey women. This physically and emotionally demanding tour-de-force - dedicated to "all Black women everywhere - especially our mothers" - went on to become an enduring work of American art. The ballet is made up of three parts - the first is set to Alice Coltrane's "Something about John Coltrane," the second to Laura Nyro's "Been on a Train" and the last has the Voices of East Harlem singing "Right On, Be Free." Ballet Hispanico - Con Brazos Abiertos by Michelle Manzanales Michelle Manzanales explores with humility, nostalgia and humor the iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas. Intertwining folkloric details with a distinctly contemporary voice in dance, set to music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to rock en Espanol, Con Brazos Abiertos is a fun and frank look at a life caught between two cultures. Dance Theatre of Harlem - When Love by Helen Pickett "Insistent time maps our days but when we are in love, we surrender," says choreographer Helen Pickett about When Love. Her exquisite pas de deux captures the wondrous feeling of timeless love. American Ballet Theatre - Children's Songs Dance by Jessica Lang A work for seven dancers, Children's Songs Dance by Jessica Lang takes its name from the music. Set to selections from Children's Songs by the late American jazz composer Chick Corea, the ballet was created on ABT Studio Company in January 2020 during a residency at The Pocantico Center in Tarrytown, New York. According to Lang, Children's Songs Dance "draws its inspiration from the transition in life between being a child and becoming an adult, with the goal of never losing the spirit of play." New York City Ballet - Red Angels by Ulysses Dove A dynamically charged, abstract work, Red Angels highlights the power and athleticism of its four dancers through bold choreography, intense lighting, and a riveting score for electric violin. Created for New York City Ballet's Diamond Project in 1994, Red Angels was the first work created for NYCB by the late choreographer Ulysses Dove. An abstract work for four dancers, Red Angels is set to Richard Einhorn's "Maxwell's Demon", a solo for electric violin performed by innovative American violinist Mary Rowell.

Book Discussion | American Urbanist: How William H. Whyte's Unconventional Wisdom Reshaped Public Life


Richard K. Rein's book shares the life and wisdom of a man whose advocacy reshaped many of the places we know and love today—from New York’s bustling Bryant Park to preserved forests and farmlands around the country. Holly’s experiences as a WWII intelligence officer and leader of the genre-defining reporters at Fortune Magazine in the 1950s shaped his razor-sharp assessments of how the world actually worked—not how it was assumed to work. His 1956 bestseller, The Organization Man, catapulted the dangers of “groupthink” and conformity into the national consciousness.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Love Stories finale by Robert Battle Choreography: Robert Battle Music: Stevie Wonder Love Stories was Artistic Director Emerita Judith Jamison's dynamic collaboration with hip-hop pioneer Rennie Harris and Robert Battle. Inspired by the African concept of "Sankofa," which teaches that "we don't know where we are going unless we know where we have been," this extraordinary ballet celebrates the heritage of African-American dance and the rich legacy of Alvin Ailey. In the ballet's joyful third section choreographed by Robert Battle, which is presented as a standalone piece, the choreographer portrays a luminous future built on the lessons and legacy of the past, with a forceful push forward. Dance Theatre of Harlem - Return by Robert Garland Dance Theatre of Harlem's Resident Choreographer Robert Garland deploys his signature "post-modern urban neoclassicism" to magnify the soulful exuberance of the music of James Brown and Aretha Franklin thereby creating a ballet that is pure joy to behold.

Talk | Wounds into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma (online)


Jewish lineage has accrued much wisdom over the past 3,000 years and many wounds, too, after centuries of adversity. Recent studies in the fields of neuroscience and epigenetics demonstrate that our traumatic experiences stay with us and are often transmitted to future generations. As we emerge from Tisha B'Av, a time of grieving, join Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone for a talk delving into this, and exploring the journey of culling family and tribal legacies for their positive, life-giving gifts and facing the detrimental patterns we have inherited, in order to dissolve and repair them. Reb Tirzah will draw on stories and research from her award-winning book, Wounds into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma. Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, Ph.D., is an author, Jungian psychotherapist, a leader in the international Jewish Renewal Movement, and a renowned Jewish scholar and teacher.

Book Discussion | Liberty’s Chain: Slavery, Abolition, and the Jay Family of New York (online)


In this lecture, David Gellman explores the contradictions of the Jay family’s attitudes toward slavery over multiple generations. Enslaved and formerly enslaved people living in Jay households experienced isolation, even as members of the Jay family took increasingly radical approaches to law, policy, politics, and advocacy, culminating in John Jay’s signing of An Act for the Gradual Abolition of Slavery in 1799 as Governor of New York, which helped bring about the emancipation of enslaved people in New York in 1827. Gellman aims to bring new light and a fresh understanding of the Founder’s legacy.

Suspect varietal. Knot strengths. Life. Import truth. Familial pliés. Moving value in light of wind. An interspecific note. Waits. One oblique confession. Profession. Reflective intention. Signs. An arrival to mark another movement of colours, hand to hand. Veil long discretions. North winding decisive recall. On sudden shifts. A quiet gesture. Trees.

Dance Performance | 5 Iconic NYC Dance Companies


Five of NYC's most iconic dance companies--Ballet Hispanico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem--share the spotlight and an outdoor stage with dancers and pieces from across the companies. Participants: One for All, World Premiere Lincoln Center Commission by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, featuring dancers from each of the five companies, is set to Manteca by Funky Lowlives/Dizzy Gillespie. Ballet Hispanico - Con Brazos Abiertos by Michelle Manzanales Michelle Manzanales explores with humility, nostalgia and humor the iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas. Intertwining folkloric details with a distinctly contemporary voice in dance, set to music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to rock en Espanol, Con Brazos Abiertos is a fun and frank look at a life caught between two cultures. New York City Ballet - Red Angels by Ulysses Dove A dynamically charged, abstract work, Red Angels highlights the power and athleticism of its four dancers through bold choreography, intense lighting, and a riveting score for electric violin. Created for New York City Ballet's Diamond Project in 1994, Red Angels was the first work created for NYCB by the late choreographer Ulysses Dove. An abstract work for four dancers, Red Angels is set to Richard Einhorn's "Maxwell's Demon", a solo for electric violin performed by innovative American violinist Mary Rowell. American Ballet Theatre - Children's Songs Dance by Jessica Lang A work for seven dancers, Children's Songs Dance by Jessica Lang takes its name from the music. Set to selections from Children's Songs by the late American jazz composer Chick Corea, the ballet was created on ABT Studio Company in January 2020 during a residency at The Pocantico Center in Tarrytown, New York. According to Lang, Children's Songs Dance "draws its inspiration from the transition in life between being a child and becoming an adult, with the goal of never losing the spirit of play." Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Love Stories finale by Robert Battle Choreography: Robert Battle Music: Stevie Wonder Love Stories was Artistic Director Emerita Judith Jamison's dynamic collaboration with hip-hop pioneer Rennie Harris and Robert Battle. Inspired by the African concept of "Sankofa," which teaches that "we don't know where we are going unless we know where we have been," this extraordinary ballet celebrates the heritage of African-American dance and the rich legacy of Alvin Ailey. In the ballet's joyful third section choreographed by Robert Battle, which is presented as a standalone piece, the choreographer portrays a luminous future built on the lessons and legacy of the past, with a forceful push forward. Dance Theatre of Harlem - Return by Robert Garland Dance Theatre of Harlem's Resident Choreographer Robert Garland deploys his signature "post-modern urban neoclassicism" to magnify the soulful exuberance of the music of James Brown and Aretha Franklin thereby creating a ballet that is pure joy to behold.

Opening Reception | Malik Tricoche: Dancing for Rain


Drawing upon a collective history of the use of dance and movement as a spiritual access point Dancing for Rain poetically juxtaposes Malik’s utilization of motion to achieve flow state while painting, not only dancing in front of the canvas but with the canvas, rotating each work 360 degrees and painting from every direction. The phrase “rain dance” refers to the ritualistic nature of human behaviors. Repeating habits make up a pattern of events and relationships that define our sense of time, reality and ultimate sense of purpose. These patterns are the guiding map connecting the lived experience of the artist to the ancient myths of the past and into the future.

Dance Performance | 5 Iconic NYC Dance Companies


Five of NYC's most iconic dance companies--Ballet Hispanico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem--share the spotlight and an outdoor stage with dancers and pieces from across the companies. Schedule: One for All, World Premiere Lincoln Center Commission by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, featuring dancers from each of the five companies, is set to Manteca by Funky Lowlives/Dizzy Gillespie. Ballet Hispanico - Club Havana by Pedro Ruiz Latin dancing at its best. The intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz, himself a native of Cuba, as he imagined his very own "Club Havana." New York City Ballet - Allegro Brillante by George Balanchine George Balanchine called the exuberant Allegro Brillante "everything I know about classical ballet in thirteen minutes." One of George Balanchine's most joyous, pure dance pieces, Allegro Brillante is characterized by what Maria Tallchief -- the ballerina on whom the bravura leading role was created -- called "an expansive Russian romanticism." The ballet is set to Tschaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 3, a work that the composer created from sketches for a composition that was intended to be his Sixth Symphony, but which instead served as a single movement work which was published posthumously in 1894. Balanchine described this ballet as a concentrated essay in the extended classical vocabulary, in which a maximum amount of choreographic development is contained within a rather restricted area of time and space. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and American Ballet Theatre - Pas de Duke by Alvin Ailey (Jacquelin Harris, Ailey, and Herman Cornejo, ABT) Choreography: Alvin Ailey Music: Duke Ellington Pas de Duke is Alvin Ailey's modern dance translation of a classical pas de deux celebrating the musical genius of Duke Ellington. It was originally choreographed on two of the most renowned dancers in the world, Judith Jamison and Mikhail Baryshnikov, and presented as part of the festival "Ailey Celebrates Ellington" at Lincoln Center's New York State Theater in 1976. Ailey choreographed five sections that capture the sassy sophistication of "The Duke's" jazz music as the two soloists challenge each other toe-to-toe and line-for-line in a playful, good-natured competition. Dance Theatre of Harlem - Return by Robert Garland Dance Theatre of Harlem's Resident Choreographer Robert Garland deploys his signature "post-modern urban neoclassicism" to magnify the soulful exuberance of the music of James Brown and Aretha Franklin thereby creating a ballet that is pure joy to behold.

Concert | Dancehall Reggae and Hip-Hop 90s Style with Slick Rick and More


Legendary label VP Records has been a bastion of Jamaican music in New York City since its founding in 1977. Riddims and beats are the heart of the story of Dancehall reggae and Hip Hop in 1990s New York. Producers, DJs, and artists from various neighborhoods, with an appreciation of Jamaica's latest hits, expanded the sound with tracks built on the same brands of drum machines and electronic keyboards of the era. The burgeoning New York dancehall scene went on to spawn multiple careers and countless street anthems. This show presents some of the creators of those anthemic hits with performances from Slick Rick, Wayne Wonder, Shinehead, Red Fox, and Lady G. DJs Jazzy Joyce and Peter Panic will set the mood with a mix of 90s hip hop and reggae that displays the cultural mix and dancefloor appeal of the era. Hosted by DJ Ralph McDaniels of Video Music Box and New York radio legend Dahved Levy, this one promises to be a hot summer night.

Dance Performance | Young Voices in Dance


This celebration of the next generation of choreographers includes: Sydney Burtis, The Difference "The Difference" is a tap dance work that fuses sound and movement to take you on a journey through both jazz and contemporary music. With these differing genres of music at play, the dancers hope to inspire feelings of positivity, self-worth, and community, as they can make a lasting difference in your life. Zachary Seto, Nostalgic Beings of Synesthesia - NYC Premiere "Nostalgic Beings of Synesthesia" is the continuation of constant conversations, the dialogue of speaking in a language unknown to humankind. It explores the physical experience of undulating spiritual verbal dialect through movement. Canadian choreographer Zachary Seto channels the constant flow of infinite gold light and spiraling energy that surrounds us. Camryn and Courtney Spero, Distance "Distance" investigates what it means to be part of a collective and how to reconcile the fleeting time and space we have to explore the relations within it. Set to New Order's 80s synth-pop track "Blue Monday," the juxtaposition of artificial kicks with deadpan vocals introduces questions of superficiality and authenticity in our interactions, as dancers enter and exit formation, are caught in repetition, and groove on and off the relentless beat. Kate Louissaint, Bird's Eye - World Premiere How do we process things we can't see? This piece is an exploration of sisterhood, fear, and learning when to fight versus when to surrender. It is a contemporary/modern based trio that relies heavily on the instrumentation, and the imagination of the audience. Lerato Ragontse, In Between Change "In Between Change" focuses on the beauty of technique. The piece emphasizes the importance of allowing yourself to appreciate the journey that leads to success. Through breath, the dancers showcase their elegance and strength while expressing the importance of breathing and letting things be, even if that means change. Anya Susan, In Conversation "In Conversation," created in 2020 and reworked in 2022, is a work about the reflection of the selves. With no true characterization of a 'younger' or 'older' self, it is meant to depict how the information learned throughout one's life can and will influence our future choices and responses. Without ever letting go of these identities, we learn to integrate and adapt. Reworking the piece in 2022 affirms this concept, providing a time capsule into the choreographer's then 18 year old mind that she gets to reexamine at 20. Myles King, The Last Foundry "The Last Foundry" navigates the complex relationship between power and vulnerability. While power and vulnerable struggle to coexist in society, this work highlights that they can. The choreographic process of this piece was highly collaborative with the dancers who are within the minority community and highlight the power and vulnerability that we all possess as minority people within the world. Shannon Harkins, Dreams and Nightmares of a Mutant People - NYC Premiere "Dreams and Nightmares of a Mutant People" explores escapism through character, artistry, and individual oddities. Classical ballet elements meet with expressive and enhanced movement to create an otherworldly environment.

Dance Performance | 5 Iconic NYC Dance Companies


Five of NYC's most iconic dance companies--Ballet Hispanico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem--share the spotlight and an outdoor stage with dancers and pieces from across the companies. Participants: American Ballet Theatre - Children's Songs Dance by Jessica Lang A work for seven dancers, Children's Songs Dance by Jessica Lang takes its name from the music. Set to selections from Children's Songs by the late American jazz composer Chick Corea, the ballet was created on ABT Studio Company in January 2020 during a residency at The Pocantico Center in Tarrytown, New York. According to Lang, Children's Songs Dance "draws its inspiration from the transition in life between being a child and becoming an adult, with the goal of never losing the spirit of play." Ballet Hispanico - Club Havana by Pedro Ruiz Latin dancing at its best. The intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz, himself a native of Cuba, as he imagined his very own "Club Havana." Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Cry by Alvin Ailey Choreography by Alvin Ailey Music: Alice Coltrane, Laura Nyro, Voices of East Harlem In 1971, Alvin Ailey choreographed the solo Cry as a birthday present for his mother on his stunning muse, the legendary Judith Jamison, who has taught the treasured role to subsequent generations of Ailey women. This physically and emotionally demanding tour-de-force - dedicated to "all Black women everywhere - especially our mothers" - went on to become an enduring work of American art. The ballet is made up of three parts - the first is set to Alice Coltrane's "Something about John Coltrane," the second to Laura Nyro's "Been on a Train" and the last has the Voices of East Harlem singing "Right On, Be Free." Dance Theatre of Harlem - When Love by Helen Pickett "Insistent time maps our days but when we are in love, we surrender," says choreographer Helen Pickett about When Love. Her exquisite pas de deux captures the wondrous feeling of timeless love. New York City Ballet - Allegro Brillante by George Balanchine George Balanchine called the exuberant Allegro Brillante "everything I know about classical ballet in thirteen minutes." One of George Balanchine's most joyous, pure dance pieces, Allegro Brillante is characterized by what Maria Tallchief -- the ballerina on whom the bravura leading role was created -- called "an expansive Russian romanticism." The ballet is set to Tschaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 3, a work that the composer created from sketches for a composition that was intended to be his Sixth Symphony, but which instead served as a single movement work which was published posthumously in 1894. Balanchine described this ballet as a concentrated essay in the extended classical vocabulary, in which a maximum amount of choreographic development is contained within a rather restricted area of time and space. One for All, World Premiere Lincoln Center Commission by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, commissioned by Lincoln Center and featuring dancers from each of the five companies, is set to Manteca by Funky Lowlives/Dizzy Gillespie.

Tour | Monet's Giverny - A Home and Garden (online)


Claude Monet lived and painted in Giverny from 1883 to his death in 1926. He purchased a house and property and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. He began painting the water lilies in 1899, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years. Monet gained much of his inspiration from his gardens and believed it was important to surround himself with nature and paint outdoors.
