Carnegie Hall Citywide: Birds of Chicago
Jun 22 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Spread the love

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

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.

How did lesbian identified photographers in the 1980s build community in real time? Often claiming figures like Alice Austen as inspiration, photographers such as Joan E. Biren and Tia Cross created narratives about becoming a photographer in order to claim legacies from histories of omission.

Ariel Goldberg's publications include The Estrangement Principle (Nightboat Books, 2016) and The Photographer (Roof Books, 2015). Goldberg’s research, writing and performance work has been supported by the New York Public Library, the Franklin Furnace Fund, SOMA in Mexico City, and Smith College. Goldberg currently teaches writing and from 2014-2017, they organized readings at The Poetry Project. They are the 2018-9 Zuckerman Fellow, Curator of Community Engagement at the Jewish History Museum in Tucson, AZ. Goldberg’s art writing has appeared in e-flux, Artforum, and Art in America. They are currently working on two books: Heavy Equipment, essays on the practices of LGBTQ photographers in the 1970s-90s, and A Century, a novel based on the partnership of art critic Elizabeth McCausland and photographer Berenice Abbott.

Tai Chi focuses the mind while training the body — meditation through movement. Once learned, it can be maintained easily as a healthy life-long practice, easily adapted to your abilities and/or limitations. Due to continuous movements, especially shifting body weight from one leg to another, Tai Chi delivers countless benefits, including increased strength, conditioning, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, range of motion, bone density, joint lubrication, mind/body connection; and more confidence, peace of mind thru-out the day, improved sleep at night. Note that this is the oldest original Chen-Style Tai Chi, taught by traditional instruction, where each student learns at their own pace and builds up their knowledge bit-by-bit.

The Etruscans: One of Three Great Civilizations in Italy

The Etruscans: One of Three Great Civilizations in Italy
Francesco Bonavita, Ph.D

Who are these Etruscans who are often labeled as enigmatic, gluttons, bon vivants, obscure but who, supposedly, gave us wine, the love for music and taught us to live life in style? In this presentation, I would like to explore several questions. Is it possible that three major civilizations could flourish in the same area, during the course of twenty five hundred years? In a small geographical area, such as Tarquinia, the Etruscans left behind a vast and highly decorated necropolis to honor their loved ones. Although there is no question that the Etruscan society was clearly defined in terms aristocratic lines, vis-a-vis a much larger servant population, one has to assume that such an extended necropolis could not have been intended just for the upper echelon. Rather, might we presuppose a more egalitarian posture toward the lower classes? Might this attitude constitute a more benevolent disposition toward the working class at this early juncture of Western Civilization? Another question that is equally compelling is where the Etruscans originate? Since their language is classified as non Indo-European, many historians have been intrigued by their origins. And last, but not least, we need to examine the legacy of the Etruscans and the degree to which studying these ancient people might give us a better appreciation of who we are.

Refreshments and a light reception will follow.
