Ana Tijoux / Combo Chimbita / L’Unicorns / DJ Shame / Hosted by Jen and Magie in association with La Isla Bonita @ Cpl. Thompson Park (in CPL. Thompson Park)
Jun 20 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Ana Tijoux is a French-Chilean pop singer and rapper with a long history of championing social justice and nonviolence. She first started rapping and dancing at 11 years old, and did stints in the groups Los Tetas and Makiza before setting off on her own in 2006 with the single "Ya No Fue." In 2009 she embraced hip-hop with her Grammy-nominated breakout LP 1977, which drew comparisons to DJ Premier's work with Jeru the Damaja. She's joined by Combo Chimbita, a New York-based group of Colombianos formed at world music incubator Barbes in Brooklyn. Self-proclaimed “Tropical Futurists,” they reach into the past to find the sounds of the future, with rhythms rooted in cumbia yet incorporating champeta, Afropop, calypso, dub, Haitian kompa, and even a little bit of Cape Verde’s space echo vibes.

Two Views: North Shore | Opening Reception
Jun 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

For the past five years, documentary photographers Gareth Smit and Stephen Obisanya have been separately documenting life on the North Shore of Staten Island. Smit, born and raised in South Africa, originally took an interest in the North Shore during the aftermath of Eric Garner’s death when he photographed Garner’s family and friends while chronicling stories about a community in transition. Obisanya, a Nigerian immigrant raised on Staten Island, began his work on the North Shore as a means of recording the underpinning moments in a community undergoing transformation, exploring the foundations of human connection and condition through the lens of family and community.

The North Shore is a borderland — a place where the culture wars of our decade play out in the everyday lives of its residents: housing and a gentrifying urban landscape, policing and race relations, immigration and the experience of LGBTQI+ youth. At a time when global politics seeks to dehumanize, distort, or oversimplify, the North Shore offers a complex counter-narrative — a microcosm of contemporary life in the United States.

Two Views: North Shore explores two perspectives considering similar themes about one place, and provides a glimpse into the lives, and stories, of many. It is also the inaugural exhibition of Obisanya’s work in New York City. By presenting their work together, Smit and Obisanya emphasize how the individual experience of life on the North Shore converges and diverges in a multitude of ways. The joint exhibition also comments on the presumed singular narrative that photography so frequently presents. Through contradictions, reflections and refractions, Two Views: North Shore reconstructs a more complex narrative about life on the North Shore.

Jun 22 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Birds of Chicago—husband-and-wife team JT Nero and Allison Russell—has been making soulful, heartfelt music since 2012. In Nero’s words, the duo’s self-described “secular gospel” songs open up “channels of love.” Birds of Chicago’s voices—Nero’s gritty and Russell’s smooth—blend beautifully and recall country blues, doo-wop, and classic soul. The pair’s newest album, "Love in Wartime," is balm for the nation’s troubled times, offering messages of trust and understanding that are also danceable.

SIST Presents Summer Rep: Much Ado About Nothing and Antigone @ William H Pouch Scout Camp
Jun 22 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre Company Presents 2019 Summer Repertory:

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, or THE NOTING: A SHAKESPEAREAN WORKPLACE
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Ariel Marcus

Gossip. Clock in. “Did you hear?” Judgements. Post its. “I thought she was.” Hearsay. Coffee break. “Can you believe that?” Whispers. Lunch room. “He said what?” Rumors. Lies. “Take note.” Here in the office, what is said around the watercooler can make or break you, but don’t clock out early or you’ll miss the truth. This modern “mockumentary” take on Shakespeare’s comedy masterpiece deals farcically about love and romance in the aftermath of corporate war – and in the midst of reality television.

And

ANTIGONE: NEVER AGAIN
By Sophocles
Directed by Ariana Nicoletta

During this time of political unrest and violence, one important group of our society has stood out: the activism of Millennials.

Antigone is an Ancient Greek tragedy that brings to light the kind of impact youth have when protesting injustice, especially in the face of violence and war. This production holds a mirror to own violent society and shows the strength and purity of young Antigone, along with her Millennial generation of activists, in face of being pushed aside and mocked as naïve.

There will also be a short performance of the show "Harriet Tubman Herself" by Christine Dixon.

Meet Dano Wall, the artist who came up with the idea for the Harriet Tubman stamp in order to express his disappointment over the decision of the Treasury Secretary that Harriet Tubman's image would not make it on to the $20 bill until 2028.

PASS: s o u  n  d  i   n   g  line
Jun 22 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Inside Snug Harbor’s historic cottage, four performers create, inhabit, and transform individual and collective pasts to ask what it means to belong as a woman to a family line.

Using movement and shadow play, and manipulating simple elements — cloth, rope, paper, and light — Adrienne Westwood’s s o u n d i n g line pulls the imagined histories of female ancestors into the present.

“Westwood is a promising choreographer of delicate craft, one worth watching.” —Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Infinite Body Blog
