Lecture | Literature as an Ark: on the Stylistic and Ethical Aspects of Zoopoetics
Zoopoetics aims to highlight the plurality of stylistic, linguistic and narrative tools used by writers to express the plurality of animal activities, affects and worlds, as well as the intricacies of the interactions between humans and animals. Such an approach helps to understand that all life forms are in a relationship of dependence with an arche (Husserl)--an origin, a reason, a refuge, a dwelling, the Earth--and that animals are more stylistic or rhetorical beings than we usually think of them as being. Evolution and biomorphic logics allow us to intuitively understand other species related to us, to share many of their emotions and expressions, and to be able to account for them through specific human means, such as evocative and figurative language. The lecture will show that perspectivism, metamorphosis and hybridity are universal patterns and experiences that literature embodies in different ways. Speaker Anne Simon is a Research Director at the Centre National de la Recherche Francaise and a Member of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), where she leads the Project "Animots".

Concert |
The Lower East Side’s own Avenida B presides over the dance floor for a night of classic salsa dura. It may be a new group but it has an old soul, committed to unearthing and reviving the old-school sound and timeless swing of the kind of salsa that truly makes you want to get up and dance. DJ Antonio (a.k.a. La Conga NYC) gets the floor warmed up with a salsa set that stretches from the ’60s to today.

Benoit Mugabo 2017, 12 Min. - Two performance artists, male and female, roam the nighttime streets of Goma with electrified private parts, provoking the public in a spectacle of bewilderment, fascination, and curiosity.

Mattheus Pipleare (c. 1450-1515) was a composer active in the Low Countries during the great flowering of Franco-Netherlandish music. He lived and worked in Louvain, Antwerp and ‘s-Hertogenbosch, and, unlike many of his contemporaries, seems to have never left to study in either France or Italy. A master of polyphony, his surviving music consists mainly of sacred works, and the Festival Chorus of Collectio Musicorum will present several of these works. Also on the program are keyboard intabulations of works by Pipelare, performed by the organist James Wetzel. Collectio Musicorum, Inc. (“Collection of Music”) presents concerts of music you will not hear elsewhere. Founded in 2013 by musicologist Jeff S. Dailey, Collectio Musicorum is devoted to giving the best possible performances of music from the earliest of times.
