Hercules: In Search of a Hero is a new theater piece combining excepts from Euripides' plays Alcestis and Hercules, along with original material, to explore the meaning of heroism in our time. Hercules is a man of violence, most of the time heroic by killing. Alcestis, on the other hand, is a woman who stands out for an act of self-sacrifice: she is heroic by dying. Placing the action in a modern setting, Hercules: In Search of a Hero challenges the conventional, masculine notion of heroism and contemplates a feminine alternative.

Disassembler, Maria Antelman - Pioneer Works
Through February 10, 2019 - Brooklyn

In Disassembler, Maria Antelman presents eight installation works across three floors of the Pioneer Works building. Antelman creates collage-like videos that pull from a well of sources, including scenarios about rewilding the American West, ideas of techno-animism, and early reconnaissance images from outer space. Crafted from unexpected juxtapositions, her often foreboding filmic compositions decode what it means to exist in a networks system. In the third floor gallery, Antelman will debut the namesake video installation Disassembler, newly commissioned by Pioneer Works and co-produced by the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens (EMST). Titled after a computer tool that translates machine code into assembly language for humans to understand, the piece raises questions about the physical and psychological impact of automation processes on the individual and society. Disassembler confronts a post-automated experience, where bodies and gestures return to an organic, experiential world.

COZY: Isabel Gillies in Conversation with Mariska Hargitay - 92Y
February 12, 2019 - Upper East Side

In these increasingly difficult times, why is it important to identify what cozy means to you? To New York Times bestselling author Isabel Gillies (Happens Every Day, A Year and Six Seconds, Starry Night), "cozy" is more than the warmth of a fire on a chilly day—it comes from deep within us, is specific, unexpected, and can be named. She characterizes the themes that foster a cozy life—connection, control, and organization—in her new book COZY: The Art of Arranging Yourself in the World. Gilles talks with award-winning actress (and fellow Law & Order: SVU cast member) Mariska Hargitay, exploring the elements from which we make cozy happen anywhere, even in troubling circumstances.

Bernard-Henri Lévy: America's Abdication and the Fate of the World - 92Y
February 13, 2019 - Upper East Side

Is America in the process of retreating from its traditional world leadership role? Bernard-Henri Lévy, one of the West's leading intellectuals, takes an informed and provocative look at the state of world politics today. How are Russia, China, Turkey, Iran, and Sunni radical Islamism taking steps to assert power and influence? And what are the ramifications of the steps they are taking to undermine the liberal values that have been a hallmark of Western civilization? Join him for a clear-eyed look at the world stage, as he talks about his important new book, The Empire and the Five Kings: America's Abdication and the Fate of the World. Drawing upon lessons from history and the eternal touchstones of human culture, Lévy reveals the stakes facing the West as America retreats from its leadership role, a process that did not begin with Donald Trump's presidency and is not likely to end with him. The crisis is one whose roots can be found as far back as antiquity and whose resolution will require the West to find a new way forward if it—and its values—are to survive.

Tainted Love - 80's Dance Party with Dj Jane Elizabeth - February Edition - The Bell House
February 15, 2019 - Brooklyn

This event is 21 and over Soft Cell's pioneering 1981 cover of the Northern Soul classic, "Tainted Love," is the inspiration for this awesome 80s dance party. Building on a solid foundation of New Wave, we'll dig deeper into the catalog of massive hits and overlooked misses from the late 70s through the early 90s - pivotal years in musical history that blurred the lines between Analog and Digital, Disco and Synthpop, Funk and Hip-Hop. A time when Alternative was called Post-Punk, Indie actually meant independent, and Throbbing Gristle's "Hot on the Heels of Love" surely could have been alongside Blondie's "Heart of Glass" on the charts...with today's perspective. Other passions include CBGB-era New York, Batcave-era London - Punk Rock, Glam Rock, Kraut Rock, Girl Rock, Dad Rock, Rockabilly, Ska, Machine Soul, Blue-Eyed Soul, Darkwave, Coldwave - plus some guilty pleasures in the (strictly) Old-School Rap department.

February 15, 2019 - New York

Age Limit: 21 and Over The Realistics, NYC's best-kept secret, reunite after 15 years to join the Mercury Lounge in celebrating the venue's 25th anniversary In the early 2000s, The Realistics were instrumental in reviving NYC's reputation as a hotbed of new and exciting music. Their Mercury Lounge shows with Robbers on High Street, Radio 4, Longwave, The Mooney Suzuki, and a burgeoning young band called The Strokes, are the stuff of legend. The Realistics' are bringing back their signature swagger, infectious songs and powerful, bombastic performances — think Elvis Costello + The Who + The Clash — to help the Mercury Lounge celebrate its 25th anniversary. For a time, The Realistics were everywhere. In Levi's ads, on the cover of Fader Magazine, on stage with Buzzcocks and Joe Strummer, on tour with The Strokes, Peter, Bjorn & John and Blondie. They toured endlessly, spreading the gospel of high-energy rock and roll, leaving legions of fans and newly forming bands in their wake. Then they were gone. Their last show was headlining the Joe Strummer memorial concert at Irving Plaza, December 22, 2003. Reunion invitations came and went. But in December 2018, almost 15 years to the day,...

Panda Bear - Pioneer Works
February 15, 2019 - Brooklyn

Panda Bear will perform at Pioneer Works as part of his 2019 Buoys Tour. The sixth album from Animal Collective founding member Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear), Buoys, was co-produced and co-mixed by collaborator Rusty Santos in Lennox's adopted home of Lisbon, Portugal. The album features Lennox's bright, sincere voice along with his beatific approach to melodic structure and vocal phrasing, with miles of space surrounding it, a guitar and a few textured samples fleshing out the dubby sparseness and undercurrent of speaker-limit-pushing sub-bass low-end. Animated by their ongoing interest in contemporary music production techniques, it retains a deep layer of experimentation coursing through its hyper-modern production—a hallmark of Panda Bear releases that will feel intimately familiar to fans of Lennox's decade-plus body of work.

Elise Testone & Trewculture with Special Guests - The Cutting Room
February 15, 2019 - New York

A powerhouse vocalist whose incredible stage presence and vocal maturity rank with the best, Elise Testone is the perfect combination of soul, rock, attitude and restraint. Equally as impressive and at ease belting James Brown style vocals over a relentless funk groove as she is resting her voice gently over a ballad, Testone's range of influences and vocal capacity know few limits. Her first original album, In This Life, released last year received rave reviews, celebrating her ability to "wail the blues, rock like a bitch and purr sexily" (Goldmine Magazine). Growing up in New Jersey with a father who collected juke boxes, Testone knew she was a singer even as a young girl. Exposed to music that ranged from Motown and the Beatles to Queen and, later, Nirvana, she began studying privately at the age of 5, excelling and performing publicly at local coffeehouses through her teens. Eventually graduating from Coastal Carolina University with a Vocal Performance degree, Testone came of age as a professional performer and private educator in Charleston, SC, becoming one of the most seasoned and well respected musicians in town. At the age of 27 she was approached by a scout from telev... (read more)

Through February 16, 2019 - Manhattan

The riveting true story of the unlikely activists that set the nation ablaze. It is 1968 and the war is raging in Vietnam. A draft card is viewed by many as a death certificate.

Their single act of conscience to halt the draft awakens a national resistance. Transport Group Artistic Director Jack Cummings III has radically re-imagined this provocative piece of theatre created from the actual court transcripts of the Catonsville Nine trial.

Blinky Palermo: To the People of New York City - Dia Art Foundation: Chelsea
Through February 16, 2019 - New York

Opening at Dia:Chelsea on September 15, 2018, Blinky Palermo's To the People of New York City returns to New York City after thirty years. The artist's magnum opus was last shown in the city at Dia Center for the Arts, 548 West 22nd Street, in 1987. To the People of New York City is a multipartite group of paintings whose palette is derived from the colors of the German flag and titled, posthumously, from a dedication that Palermo inscribed on the backs of the metal panels. The work is part of the artist's Metal Pictures series (or Metallbilder, in German), which he started while in New York City from 1973 to 1976. During this time, Palermo began to compose serialized groups of paintings on metal, using color and formal patterns to focus on a specific experience of abstract progression. Completed upon his return to Düsseldorf in late 1976, To the People of New York City was discovered in Palermo's studio after his death in February 1977. Consisting of fifteen parts—composed from forty painted aluminum panels arranged in various combinations of black, cadmium red, and cadmium yellow—the demarcated bands of color in To the People of New York City read as striking, didactic sign...
