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.

Against the odds, however, this tiny seed survives to grow into a grand, beautiful flower, ready, in turn, to send its seeds out into the world on the wind.

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.

Performing Networks: Slideshows, Questionnaires, and Directories.
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.
