The Unicorn - Anthology Film Archives
February 17, 2019 - New York

This extraordinary, years-in-the-making documentary grabs hold of a truly unique central figure: outsider musician Peter Grudzien, the one-man musical force behind "The Unicorn," which has been described as possibly the first openly gay country album. But country doesn't begin to describe the dizzying range of music included on this 1974 release. Peter composed, performed, and recorded "The Unicorn" entirely in his childhood home in Astoria, Queens, and sold the 500 pressed copies out of a suitcase on the streets of the city. Despite this unpromising genesis, the album was rescued from oblivion and re-released in the 1990s, prompting the music critic and collector Paul Major to declare it the "greatest New York LP since the first Velvet Underground or first New York Dolls." By the time filmmakers Isabelle Dupuis and Tim Geraghty encountered Grudzien, though, mainstream recognition remained elusive, with Peter himself living a marginalized and paranoia-fueled life in Queens with his forbidding, nonagenarian father, Joseph, and his schizophrenic twin sister, Terry. THE UNICORN immerses us in Peter's life, a hermetic world transfigured by his musical talent and stubborn resilience, b... (read more)

Phantom Thread - Anthology Film Archives
February 17, 2019 - New York

Paul Thomas Anderson's most recent film distinguished itself, among other ways, by eliciting a dizzying range of responses, many of them virtually diametrically opposed. In portraying the relationship between a figure who embodies the myth of white male genius (Daniel Day Lewis's monstrously perfectionist fashion designer, Reynolds Woodcock) and his seemingly long-suffering, powerless love interest (Vicky Krieps's Alma), is it perpetuating toxic gender relations or subtly deconstructing them? One thing is for sure: aside from its intoxicating set design and mise-en-scène and its typically stylized and finely wrought performances, PHANTOM THREAD is not the film it initially appears to be. Slowly but surely it clears an unexpected path for itself, only gradually revealing its modus operandi and forcing us to recalibrate our attitudes and expectations. Ultimately, it becomes a sly and subtly subversive exploration of gender and power dynamics, and a worthy addition to the Valentine's Day Massacre lineup.

Punch-drunk Love - Anthology Film Archives
February 17, 2019 - New York

As a quasi-romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE may have seemed at the time to represent a sidestep from the increasingly ambitious and weighty trajectory of Paul Thomas Anderson's career, but in retrospect it remains one of his greatest and most unusual achievements. What distinguishes PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE above all is the extent to which the film's own rhythms and textures mirror the fractured, anxious psyche of its profoundly strange and sometimes alarmingly dysfunctional protagonist. Sandler is Barry Egan – shy, recessive, yet prone to volcanic outbursts of anger – and the film charts the unlikely romance that develops when Emily Watson's Leda appears in his life. Flirting with romantic comedy and the musical, but with a hard edge and unsettling vision that's entirely unique, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is, like its protagonist, equal parts sentimental and unhinged.

"Betty and the Belrays" - Theater for the New City
Through February 17, 2019 - NEW YORK CITY

Girl groups are now an iconic part of the history of the recording industry in America. In a brief, shining period between the payola scandal and the British invasion, American girl groups swamped the charts with songs that are now classic: mostly sweet harmonies on sentimental themes, with classic melody constructions and simplistic love lyrics. Partially because of the concern that America's teens would like the songs better if they didn't know the singers' color, many girl groups were anonymous except for their recordings. Almost all of them were black, but that was not known to many fans at the time. "Betty & The Belrays" asks, "what would have happened if a white girl group had actually tried to recapitulate the careers of these black groups?" If you love the songs of The Chiffons, The Crystals, The Shirelles and The Ronettes, you'll find heaven in this production, whose music recaptures the innovation and fresh, optimistic buoyancy that ruled the AM airwaves in the Kennedy era. The playwright calls attention to the importance of black music in our culture by honoring the imitation that was its sincerest form of flattery. He also shows off the risks that white perform...

Merce Cunningham Centennial: Program 7 - Dance Critic Alastair Macaulay In Person - Anthology Film Archives

Charles Atlas BIPED 2005, 52 min, digital. Dancers: Lisa Boudreau, Thomas Caley, Holley Farmer, Maydelle Fason, Jean Freebury, David Kulick, Matthew Mohr, Banu Ogan, Glen Rumsey, Daniel Squire, Jeannie Steele, Derry Swan, Robert Swinston & Cheryl Therrien. Music: Gavin Bryars, "Biped." In his New York Times review of a staging of BIPED at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2011, following Cunningham's death, Alastair Macaulay wrote, "BIPED, the most sensationally imaginative work of Cunningham's last 20 years, is at once a triumphant outpouring of pure dance invention and a masterpiece of theatrical poetry. […] Stylistically, the choreography is the most heroic flowering of the late period in which Cunningham, devising dances on his computer, made novel and rigorous combinations of the movements of his dancers' legs, torsos and arms. The work's fatefulness – greatly heightened by Aaron Copp's changing-chessboard lighting; the computer-generated imagery on the décor by Shelley Eshkar and Paul Kaiser; the metallically shimmering costumes by Suzanne Gallo; and the shifting moods of lyricism, chance and doom in Gavin Bryars's music – is powerfully juxtaposed by the energy of the danci...

The trio was recently voted "Best New Jazz Group" in New York City Hot House Magazine.

Modern Romance - Anthology Film Archives
February 19, 2019 - New York

MODERN ROMANCE may be Albert Brooks's least-known film, but arguably it's his greatest – the most uncompromising and consistent, and, as restrained as it is on the surface, ultimately the most personal and unforgiving in its self-criticism. Brooks is Robert Cole, a film editor who breaks up with his girlfriend only to spend the rest of the movie desperately trying to erase his mistake, and even more desperately trying to contain his jealousy, neediness, and paranoia. Still the great comic portrait of male neurosis, and of emotional and psychological dysfunction, MODERN ROMANCE lays bare its protagonist's insecurities with an honesty few dramatic films have achieved. Only Brooks could make a deadpan comedy about a man who's very nearly psychotic. Painfully funny, with the emphasis on 'funny.'

The Unicorn - Anthology Film Archives
February 19, 2019 - New York

This extraordinary, years-in-the-making documentary grabs hold of a truly unique central figure: outsider musician Peter Grudzien, the one-man musical force behind "The Unicorn," which has been described as possibly the first openly gay country album. But country doesn't begin to describe the dizzying range of music included on this 1974 release. Peter composed, performed, and recorded "The Unicorn" entirely in his childhood home in Astoria, Queens, and sold the 500 pressed copies out of a suitcase on the streets of the city. Despite this unpromising genesis, the album was rescued from oblivion and re-released in the 1990s, prompting the music critic and collector Paul Major to declare it the "greatest New York LP since the first Velvet Underground or first New York Dolls." By the time filmmakers Isabelle Dupuis and Tim Geraghty encountered Grudzien, though, mainstream recognition remained elusive, with Peter himself living a marginalized and paranoia-fueled life in Queens with his forbidding, nonagenarian father, Joseph, and his schizophrenic twin sister, Terry. THE UNICORN immerses us in Peter's life, a hermetic world transfigured by his musical talent and stubborn resilience, b... (read more)

The Heartbreak Kid - Anthology Film Archives
February 19, 2019 - New York

"Were there film-historical justice in the world, THE HEARTBREAK KID would be remembered as something more than a finger-jabbed-a-little-too-sharply-in-the-ribs footnote to THE GRADUATE. An excruciatingly hilarious masterpiece of modern misanthropy, May's second directorial outing stars Charles Grodin as a newlywed who, not five days into his honeymoon, mercilessly dumps his bride (played, with an Oscar-nominated mixture of hapless pathos and a double order of egg salad, by May's daughter, Jeannie Berlin) in order to pursue Cybill Shepherd's teenage Minnesota WASP princess. An anatomy of internalized rage, curdled misogyny, and bottomless self-deception, May's second film – as indeed do each of the four films she directed – deserves better." –Chuck Stephens, FILM COMMENT

An Evening with Christine Ebersole - Lincoln Center
February 20, 2019 - New York

Christine Ebersole has enchanted audiences for decades with award-winning performances on screen and on stage, in live concerts, and on myriad solo and cast recordings. While early successes in film and television showcased her "multitudes" as a comedian, actress, and singer (New York Times), Ebersole's more recent stage performances—including her Tony Award–winning dual role in Grey Gardens—have solidified her standing as Broadway royalty. Rave reviews for her performance as Elizabeth Arden in 2017's hit musical War Paint reveal that this "enduringly vital" talent (New York Times)—and our love for her—is here to stay. For this very special engagement in Alice Tully Hall, Ebersole's signature wit and "fervent, radiant soprano" are guaranteed to surprise and delight our Songbook audience.

Punch-drunk Love - Anthology Film Archives
February 21, 2019 - New York

As a quasi-romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE may have seemed at the time to represent a sidestep from the increasingly ambitious and weighty trajectory of Paul Thomas Anderson's career, but in retrospect it remains one of his greatest and most unusual achievements. What distinguishes PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE above all is the extent to which the film's own rhythms and textures mirror the fractured, anxious psyche of its profoundly strange and sometimes alarmingly dysfunctional protagonist. Sandler is Barry Egan – shy, recessive, yet prone to volcanic outbursts of anger – and the film charts the unlikely romance that develops when Emily Watson's Leda appears in his life. Flirting with romantic comedy and the musical, but with a hard edge and unsettling vision that's entirely unique, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is, like its protagonist, equal parts sentimental and unhinged.

The Unicorn - Anthology Film Archives
February 21, 2019 - New York

This extraordinary, years-in-the-making documentary grabs hold of a truly unique central figure: outsider musician Peter Grudzien, the one-man musical force behind "The Unicorn," which has been described as possibly the first openly gay country album. But country doesn't begin to describe the dizzying range of music included on this 1974 release. Peter composed, performed, and recorded "The Unicorn" entirely in his childhood home in Astoria, Queens, and sold the 500 pressed copies out of a suitcase on the streets of the city. Despite this unpromising genesis, the album was rescued from oblivion and re-released in the 1990s, prompting the music critic and collector Paul Major to declare it the "greatest New York LP since the first Velvet Underground or first New York Dolls."

We Won't Grow Old Together - Anthology Film Archives
February 21, 2019 - New York

"Far from viewer-friendly, [this film] tells the story of the endless breakups and makeups of a highly unstable yet apparently indissoluble couple. It's a sort of love story told in inverted terms, depicting the protracted end of a five-year affair, with its arbitrary disagreements, sudden mood shifts, moments of irrational anger, and displays of stinging contempt, presented with a genuine, unmeasured violence. 'You've never succeeded at anything and you never will', says Jean, a 40-year-old married filmmaker, to his younger, working-class lover Catherine. 'And do you know why? Because you are vulgar, irremediably vulgar, and not only are you vulgar, you are ordinary.' These are the film's most celebrated lines…a sort of brutalist alternative to the famous line from LOVE STORY: 'Love means never having to say you're sorry.'" –Dave Kehr, FILM COMMENT

Dangerous Beauty: Medusa in Classical Art - Merkin Hall
February 21, 2019 - New York

Kiki Karoglou, Associate Curator in the Department of Greek and Roman Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will present the exhibit she curated, Dangerous Beauty: Medusa in Classical Art. The exhibit, originally on view at The Met until January 6th, has been extended until Feb. 24, 2019. Beginning in the fifth century B.C., Medusa – the serpentine-haired Gorgon whose gaze turned men to stone – became increasingly anthropomorphic and feminine, undergoing a visual transformation from grotesque to beautiful. A similar shift in representations of other mythical female half-human beings, such as sphinxes, sirens, and the sea monster Scylla – took place at the same time. Featuring sixty artworks, primarily from The Met collection, this exhibition explores for the first time how the beautification of these terrifying figures manifested the idealizing humanism of Classical Greek art, and traces their enduring appeal in both Roman and later Western art. The Winter 2018 issue of the Met Bulletin was devoted entirely to this exhibit. A reception with Kiki Karoglou will follow the program. The event is free, however, interested parties must reserve tickets in advance.

Winner of the 1969 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Bondarchuk's War and Peace sets the changing fortunes of several aristocratic families against the backdrop of Napoleon's invasion of Russia. On record as the most expensive Soviet film in history (more than $70 million after inflation), it is also perhaps the greatest epic ever made: an exquisite production of spectacle and realism, the political and personal, that endures as a monumental achievement in filmmaking. A Janus Films release.

Ireland and America - Schimmel Center
February 22, 2019 - New York

Ireland and America – A History in Song by Larry Kirwan combines Kirwan’s 25 years of experience leading Black 47 with his parallel careers as playwright, author, journalist and radio host. Through a mix of storytelling, acting, and singing, Irish and American history come roaring to life on stage. The band explores the roots of Irish/British conflict with such Black 47 standouts as “James Connolly” and “The Big Fellah” (Michael Collins) and places special emphasis on emigration to the USA and life in New York’s Five Points as Irish immigrants and African-Americans create modern pop culture and tap dancing. Kirwan will also weave in songs from his acclaimed musical, Hard Times, and will conclude the evening with “Funky Ceili”, “40 Shades of Blue” and other hits from the rollicking side of the Black 47.

Comedians' Power Hour - Huron Club At Soho Playhouse
February 22, 2019 - New York

The wildest comedy show/drinking game/game show in the country returns to Manhattan February 22nd!! Comedians’ Power Hour (CPH) is a touring comedy show that pits two comedians in head-to-head competition telling jokes and taking shots of beer on an exciting and inebriated journey to be crowned Power Hour Champion. This month’s Comedians Power Hour features a duel between Jeff Arcuri Vs. Jeff Scheen Doors at 9:30pm Inspired by the college drinking game, a CPH has comics trading off doing two-minute sets of stand-up all the while taking 2oz. shots of beer between each set. As the hour goes on, hosts throw out challenges that play into the comics’ intoxication levels like doing two minutes of another comics’ material or giving a drunken Best Man Speech. Hosted by Sarah Kennedy and Brett Hiker, CPH originated in Albuquerque, NM and now has offshoots in NYC, Denver, Austin, Seattle and tours everywhere in between. Seeing a chance to change the typical comedy show format, a handful of Albuquerque comics created a game show that features a mixture of comedic styles and genres. Voted several times as one of the Top Ten Best Comedy Shows in Denver, Westword describes CPH... (read more)

Cinema Quema: Program 1: Mexico - Anthology Film Archives
February 22, 2019 - New York

Made at a time when 2% of Brazil's population owned 80% of its arable land, THE LAND BURNS was the first in Gleyzer's intended sequence of radical dossiers of exploitation across Latin America. The film's protagonist is 35-year-old farmer Juan Amaro, whose struggles with child mortality and dry harvests form a devastating portrayal of dwindling options in the face of agrarian capitalism. Collectively made in the Cordoba province, this film profiles a handful of different pottery makers who sell their work to visiting tourists – but the main character is Alcira López de López, whose struggles are shown in a light consistent with Gleyzer's longer-form work, taking care to bring awareness to the role played by women both in earning money and maintaining home life. Even if it initially appears a traditional ethnographic survey, the film wastes little time in questioning the merits of its own existence (and of cinema as a tool for economic change at large).

City Symphonies: Porto Of My Childhood - Anthology Film Archives
February 22, 2019 - New York

"Manoel de Oliveira's 2001 masterpiece explores the Portuguese city where he lived for more than 90 years, though it concentrates on the first 30 or so. It's remarkable for its effortless freedom and grace in passing between past and present, fiction and nonfiction, staged performance and archival footage, while integrating and sometimes even synthesizing these modes. He's mainly interested in key images, music, and locations from the Eden of his privileged youth, and some of the film's songs are performed by him or his wife – though we also get a fully orchestrated version of Emmanuel Nunes's Nachtmusik 1." –Jonathan Rosenbaum, CHICAGO READER

You Me at Six - Gramercy Theatre
February 22, 2019 - New York

Few bands get to spring a surprise six albums into their career. Even fewer do so in as dramatic a fashion as You Me At Six do on their simply titled new record, VI. They know what you probably think of them – "The emo pop-rockers from Surrey," as guitarist Chris Miller puts it – and once upon a time you would have been right. But not for a long time, and certainly not on VI, a record that switches moods and styles with breathless confidence, from devastatingly defiant rock to joyously uplifting pop. It all but drips with melodies and moods. It's the kind of record a band makes when they are in love with all the possibilities of music. VI is not what you might expect a You Me At Six album to sound like. "We've always been a band that straddles styles," says singer Josh Franceschi, sitting with his bandmates outside a London bar on a warm, early Summer afternoon. "We've always had that pop sensibility, but we've tried not to pigeonhole ourselves – that's come from other people. If we want to make another six albums, we have to to maintain the foundations of what makes this band good, and we have to be contemporary and forward thinking." "We're five individual blokes," guitarist Ma... (read more)

Piano Master: The Oscar Peterson Story - Jazz at Lincoln Center
February 22, 2019 - New York

Piano Master: The Oscar Peterson Story is a star-studded tribute to the master pianist and composer. Six extraordinary pianists with deep connections to the legend will perform a collection of Oscar Peterson compositions—some of which have never before been heard—and a few new originals written in his honor. The lineup features NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron, Afro-Cuban jazz legend Gonzalo Rubalcaba, rising stars Gerald Clayton and Ben Paterson, and Peterson's two protégés: Robi Botos and Benny Green. This special event celebrates the 70th anniversary of Peterson's unforgettable United States debut, which took place at Carnegie Hall in 1949. In addition to stunning solo pieces, they will also perform small group numbers with the most perfect rhythm section imaginable. Drummer Jeff Hamilton and guitarist Ulf Wakenius each spent years playing in Oscar Peterson's Trio and Quartet and in small groups led by Ray Brown, Peterson's longtime bassist.

Cinema Quema: Program 2 - Anthology Film Archives
February 23, 2019 - New York

IT HAPPENED IN HUALFIN adopts a tripartite approach to diagnose the poverty suffered by the Figueroa family, cane-cutters and potters in Argentina's northwestern Catamarca province. The Figueroas describe harsh working conditions and express their hopes of breaking the poverty cycle, while their misery is testament to the contortion of big-government populism, embodied by a mechanical loom given to the family by Eva Perón during a publicity visit in the 1950s, then taken back after the Perons went into exile.

Cinema Quema: Program 3: The Traitors - Anthology Film Archives
February 23, 2019 - New York

Gleyzer's sole fiction film is at once a genre thriller, a searing condemnation of the United States' interference in Southern Cone politics, and dark foreshadowing of the CIA-backed coup that would lead to his own murder. Based on a composite of multiple labor leaders, including one, José Ignacio Rucci, who was assassinated while the film was in production, THE TRAITORS follows a corrupt trade unionist named Barrera (Víctor Proncet) who stages his own kidnapping to win an election. Blending farcical satire, the political intrigue of smoke-filled-rooms, and snatches of proletarian life, THE TRAITORS is an eerie and essential potboiler comparable to MEXICO for probing the hypocrisy of powerful men building their empires on the backs of exploited workers in the name of populism. THEY KILL ME is a white-hot exposé of toxic working conditions at the INSUD metallurgical factory in the partido of La Matanza, just outside Buenos Aires. Gleyzer and his crew sit with workers while they recount workplace abuses and sing darkly comic songs around the communal pot ("The company fills us with lead / And the police too"). The poisoning suffered by the workers propels them towards a bitter and u... (read more)

Voice of My City: Jerome Robbins and New York - Lincoln Center
Through February 23, 2019 - New York

Jerome Robbins was an inveterate observer, seeker, and creator. In diaries, drawings, watercolors, paintings, story scenarios, poems—and, especially, in dance—he reimagined the world around him. And New York dominated that world, where he was born one-hundred years ago and where he lived his entire adult life. Ideas of New York have long inspired artists but often the city serves as a backdrop in an artwork rather than the basis for plot, theme, and meaning. Robbins put the city at the center of his artistic imaginings. From Fancy Free—his breakout hit ballet in 1944—to the musical West Side Story on stage (1957) and screen (1961) and the ballets N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz (1958) and Glass Pieces (1983), Robbins explored the joys, struggles, grooves, routines, and aspirations of New York. And in recreating the city around him on stage, Robbins found a place for himself. Voice of My City traces Robbins' life and dances alongside the history of New York, inspiring viewers to see the city as both a muse and a home

Ju-eh+Hwarg presents: The Living Dying Opera - an innovative musical drama - Abrons Arts Center Underground Theater
Through February 23, 2019 - New York

Video Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qvDP-KJLdI How can the art of opera relate to you? Maybe your experience has been dressing up nicely to attend the Met in New York, or seeing an opera at Milan’s La Scala. Maybe it seems like something foreign and exclusive to the wealthy, or simply old-fashioned and too difficult to understand. Voice artist Ju-eh and composer Hwarg present a brand-new work with powerful singing and delicate electronics that makes the art of opera directly relatable to your emotions and experiences: The Living Dying Opera. In our fast-paced, technologically saturated world, we are surrounded by 'micro-dilemmas’: I am in the subway and someone next to me is so smelly! Should I stay, or get off the train? My alarm rings and rings and I snooze and snooze; should I wake up, or sleep for 2 more minutes? I have had 9 cups of coffee already; should I have the 10th to make it an even number? The fundamentals of opera are drama and bel canto (beautiful singing). Ju-eh, who has studied opera for over a decade, dramatizes his personal dilemmas through voice. Hwarg, an expert in electronics and sonic arts, creates an immersive and intriguing sound world... (read more)

City Symphonies: Suite Habana - Anthology Film Archives
February 24, 2019 - New York

A poetic homage to the city of Havana, this breathtaking film is a lovely and melancholic portrait of Cuba's capital. Following in the tradition of the city symphony by adopting a "day-in-the-life-of" structure, it follows ten ordinary Habaneros as they go about their daily routine. There is no dialogue and no need for it either; music and natural sound accompany the multiplicity of images that weave a unique and intimate picture of a city full of contradictions and contrasts, a city of accomplished and frustrated dreams. Edited like a musical composition, SUITE HABANA oscillates between documentary and fiction. The ten characters range in age from 10 to 97, and represent the diversity of groups that form the city's social fabric. Each of them follows a narrative, and we follow their transformations as the workday ends and they prepare themselves to welcome the night.

Cinema Quema: Program 4 - Anthology Film Archives
February 24, 2019 - New York

By the early 1970s, paramilitary terrorism resulted in the emboldening of different antifascist groups, including the Peronist Montoneros, the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR), and the People's Revolutionary Army (ERP). Violence between militants and popular parties inevitably increased. SWIFT documents the kidnapping of Stanley Sylvester, both an English diplomat and manager of a meat processing factory, which resulted in a better deal for employees (including 25 million pesos spent on food and supplies in neighborhoods determined by the PRT-ERP). Upon his release Sylvester said he had spent his captivity playing chess and exchanging ideas with "very intelligent young people."

City Symphonies: Forest Of Bliss - Anthology Film Archives
February 24, 2019 - New York

FOREST OF BLISS is an unsparing yet redemptive account of the inevitable griefs, religious passions, and frequent joys that punctuate daily life in Benares, India's most holy city. Though its tone and imagery set it apart, in classic "city symphony" style the film unfolds from one sunrise to the next without commentary, subtitles, or dialogue. A transcendent, visually and emotionally resplendent work, it's an overwhelming experience. "[FOREST OF BLISS is] an astonishing catalogue of images: carrion-seeking dogs and flaming orange garlands (made from marigolds the color of funeral pyres), toothless healers and hawkers of sacred fire. For urbanists, nothing exceeds the clamorous spectacle of these mean streets, a visual cacophony of beggars, bicycles, scooters, cows, canny gray monkeys that scamper over scarred plaster building facades as freely as squirrels in Central Park." –J. Hoberman, VILLAGE VOICE

Cinema Quema: Program 1: Mexico - Anthology Film Archives
February 24, 2019 - New York

Collectively made in the Cordoba province, this film profiles a handful of different pottery makers who sell their work to visiting tourists – but the main character is Alcira López de López, whose struggles are shown in a light consistent with Gleyzer's longer-form work, taking care to bring awareness to the role played by women both in earning money and maintaining home life. Even if it initially appears a traditional ethnographic survey, the film wastes little time in questioning the merits of its own existence (and of cinema as a tool for economic change at large).

City Symphonies: Calcutta - Anthology Film Archives
February 24, 2019 - New York

The material that comprises Malle's CALCUTTA was originally shot as part of the project that resulted in his 6-hour, 7-part documentary film, PHANTOM INDIA. But while editing that epic non-fiction series, Malle was so taken with the footage he had captured during his three-week stay in the northern Indian metropolis that he decided to create an entirely separate feature-length film devoted to Calcutta. The result, released theatrically, is a chaotic portrait of a city engulfed in social and political turmoil, at once upsetting and wondrous.

No one knew how those five people came to participate in the experiment, or what they were doing; only that it cost them their lives. Some of their survivors moved on. Some fell apart.

Constantin Brancusi Sculpture - The Museum of Modern Art
Through February 24, 2019 - Manhattan

Poet Erza Pound spoke of artist Constantin Brancusi's work as providing "the master keys to the world of form." Over a career that spanned half a century, Brancusi's innovations transformed sculpture as it had been known, and influenced generations of artists to come. After moving to Paris in 1904 from his native Romania, Brancusi affected the appearance of a Romanian peasant—a long beard, work shirt, and sandals—while embedding himself in avant-garde art circles. He soon began pushing modernist sculpture to the threshold of abstraction, developing a new, simplified vocabulary of graceful crescents, gleaming ovoids, and rough-hewn blocks that often evoked rather than resembled the things named in their titles, such as Bird in Space or Fish. He put the natural properties of his materials on display, carving directly into wood and stone and polishing metal to high reflectivity. The bases for his sculptures were often built of stacked elements—wood cubes, cylindrical slices, pyramidal blocks, or cruciform stones—becoming an integral component of the work itself and hinting at the possibility of infinite rearrangement, an idea that would prove fertile in future decades.

Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow - New-York Historical Society Museum
Through March 03, 2019 - New York

Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial quality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. When slavery ended in 1865, a period of Reconstruction began, leading to such achievements as the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. By 1868, all persons born in the United States were citizens and equal under the law. But efforts to create an interracial democracy were contested from the start. A harsh backlash ensued, ushering in a half century of the "separate but equal" age of Jim Crow. Opening to mark the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the exhibition is organized chronologically from the end of the Civil War to the end of World War I and highlights the central role played by African Americans in advocating for their rights. It also examines the depth and breadth of opposition to black advancement. Art, artifacts, photographs, and media will help visitors explore these transformative decades in American history, and understand their continuing relevance today. Curated by Marci Reaven, vice president of history exhibitions, and Lily Wong, assistant curator.

Releasing Words: The Cut Paper Art of Deborah Ugoretz Opening Reception - Museum at Eldridge Street
Through March 31, 2019 - New York

Celebrate the opening of the Museum's newest exhibition, featuring intricate cut-paper art by Deborah Ugoretz. Ugoretz was already a working artist when she saw traditional Jewish paper cutting work for the first time. She was dazzled by this centuries-old tradition and its creative possibilities for "visualizing Judaism," and its ability to transform a simple piece of paper into a work of art that could release words into pictorial space. This exhibition will present a retrospective of the artist's work in cut paper, ranging from traditional ketubot (elaborately decorated marriage contracts), pieces inspired by Biblical texts and prayer to more recent work that considers the traditional as a starting point to explores themes and concepts in exciting and very contemporary ways. Brief remarks will be made by Museum staff and exhibition curators.

For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here? - International Center of Photography (Museum)
Through April 28, 2019 - New York

In the wake of the 2018 midterm elections, ICP’s new exhibition "For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here?" explores the role of art and visual representation in American civic life through the work of the For Freedoms collective. The exhibition features work from their 50 State Initiative—composed of a network of over 300 artists and 200 institutional partners—which featured concurrent exhibitions, art installations, and public programs as well as a nationwide artist-designed billboard campaign in all 50 states including DC and Puerto Rico, in the lead up to the midterm elections. Also central to the 50 State Initiative is the collective’s series of photographs that re-envision American artist Norman Rockwell’s Four Freedoms paintings—depicting freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear, as articulated by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1941 State of the Union address—which will be on the view for the first time. For Freedoms’ stylized scenes of the everyday reference Rockwell’s iconic style while bringing new, more inclusive representations of the country to the discussion of our core values. Members of For Freedoms will be in residence at the ICP Museu... (read more)

The Theater at the 14th Street Y Announces the 2018-2019 Season LGBTQ+ Series NEW YORK - The Theater at the 14th Street Y continues to honor the edgy, diverse, and rich history of innovative culture making in the East Village for people of all ages with the 2018-2019 LGBTQ+ Series. The series kicked off on November 12, 2018 with #NastyWomen, A Night of Female Resistance Comedy and runs through April 2019. "For our season of War & Peace, we knew that artists from the LGBTQ community would have a strong reaction to the theme. Coming out can often feel like war and creating a family can bring much needed peace. Our LGBTQ offerings this season have addressed the gamut, from Vietnam Veterans coming to terms with their sexuality to a TYA show with a non-gender binary protagonist to a piece about a modern family facing discrimination from within.  Our theater is a safe place for provocative work that will inspire conversation, debate and hopefully action," said Ronit Muszkatblit, Artistic Director. 2018-2019 LGBTQ+ Series: The Baby Monitor  Different Translation  November 29 - December 16, 2018 Written by David Stallings, directed by Antonio Miniño  When Claire's concerns ...

The series kicks-off on October 20, 2018 with The Not-So-Spooky Ghost and runs through May 2019. "Ever since I was a child, I can remember sitting in the theater, waiting as the lights went down for the magic to start. From the age of two, my mother would schlep us to see new worlds and experience foreign types of movement, sounds and music. She believed in exposing us to all parts of our imagination, building paths towards new unknowns. Here at the 14the Street Y Theater, we also believe that all children should experience that magic, sit excitedly for unknowns, and meet new characters for their imagination to take into new worlds.

Mean Girls - August-Wilson Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

Mean Girl Broadway Musical If you didn’t see Mean Girl back in the 2000s, then you probably didn’t have that great of a childhood. Most people might call it a chick flick, but in our opinion, it is one of the greatest teen movies of our generation. The people were in awe over our little mathematician. Oh, and it’s not just our opinion, the movie was showered with more awards then we can count. But, the story just keeps getting better. After her incredible movie, Tina Fey didn’t just stop there. She has far greater and extravagant plans for the Mean Girls Franchise. You'd like to know if Tina Fey can write a musical. The oh-so-not-surprising answer is... yes! – Peter Marks, The Washington Post We sometimes feel that our childhood is coming to life with musicals. First, it was Bring it On, then Heathers with several others in development. But, the musical for Mean Girls is already here. The Mean Girls Musical is a masterpiece from the great Fey. It’s based on her book and the movie of the same name. The musical was under construction since 2013. But, it was a moment of joy for every fan when it was announced on “Mean Girls Day” that their favorite movie was comi... (read more)

Frozen - Broadway Musical - St. James Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

The spectacular Disney film that captivated audiences around the world has finally made it to Broadway! Following the success of the 2013 animated movie, Frozen the Musical expands on the story of two sisters, giving more time to the characters we’ve come to love. With a book by Jennifer Lee, and music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the show has kept many members of the creative team from the film, ensuring everything on stage is faithful to the original story. Instead of being a direct copy of the film, what Frozen the Musical does is transform these animated characters into something real and tangible. It really takes the time to dig deep into the characters’ motivations, allowing their relationships to develop further. Delving deeper into Elsa and Anna’s past, the extra time given to the young sisters makes their love for each other clear from the start. Young Elsa, portrayed by Brooklyn Nelson and Ayla Schwartz, is the perfect tragic heroine. Her reaction to hurting her sister, and her fear of hurting anyone else, tugs at the heartstrings of every audience member. Both actors convey the role of big sister brilliantly, tapping into the respons... (read more)

“Move Your Curves” Workshop at Ailey Extension - The Joan Weill Center for Dance
Through June 15, 2019 - New York

Ailey Extension is teaming up with Pretty BIG Movement to bring you a “Move Your Curves" workshop. Pretty BIG Movement, based in New York City, is a full-figured dance company specializing in various dance genres such as hip-hop, jazz, ethnic, and more. Founder and CEO Akira Armstrong realized there wasn't a platform for women with voluptuous curves in mainstream media, and so she created one. While auditioning for Full Figured Fashion Week, Akira found that she was surrounded by confident, plus-size women who were beautiful, curvaceous, and shared the same passion in dance. She seized that moment and started Pretty BIG Movement. By 2015, the voluptuous dance troupe performed in Ladies Of Hip-Hop, Carnival (choreographers' ball), Ms. Full Figured USA pageant, Female Hip-Hop Honors award show, Salt N Pepa, Lane Bryant campaigns ("I'm No Angel" and "Plus Is Equal"), Full Beauty commercial, Mz. 007 concert and NBC's America's Got Talent (season 10). Currently, Pretty BIG offers dance workshops in the tri-state area to the plus-size community, creating a No Judgment environment where individuals can feel comfortable dancing.

The heavy themes of mental illness, suicide, and struggling families are confronting, but as they become more prominent in real life, the need to portray these issue seriously in theatre is more crucial than ever. Dear Evan Hansen handles these themes with grace and honesty. It makes a point of giv... (read more)
