Common Ground: Mini-Global Mashup #2 – Balkan Romani Meets Ukraine @ Flushing Town Hall
Oct 10 all-day
Common Ground: Mini-Global Mashup #2 - Balkan Romani Meets Ukraine @ Flushing Town Hall | New York | United States

Common Ground features artists seemingly different in discipline, practices, or cultural identity who explore global connections, celebrating distinctions that make cultures unique. Our NEW series Common Ground: Mini-Global Mashups are curated by acclaimed trumpeter and composer Frank London (The Klezmatics) bringing together two amazing global music artists along with accompanists for an afternoon of music, conversation and exploration. Post-show Q&A.

California-grown, Brooklyn-based Eva Salina is a groundbreaking interpreter of Balkan Romani (gypsy) songs joined by her duo partner, accordionist Peter Stan. In their collaboration, Eva & Peter pick up the threads of an interrupted legacy of empowered female voices in Balkan Romani music. Seeking to amplify and celebrate voices of past generations of Romani women musicians, they employ tenderness, grace, and friendship in keeping these songs alive and evolving, while tending to living traditions and sharing with new generations.

Zhenya Lopatnik lives and works in NY. She sings and composes music, creates art, and works as a Jewish Educator with different communities. Zhenya’s musical projects include the Ukraine based ensemble Kharkov Klezmer Band with Yuriy Khainson, the Israeli-Uranian band Zapekanka, Ternovka – Old and new Yiddish ballads, and Tender Yiddish – playing music from Jewish lullabies to getto songs.

The Scaffold Effect: Raising Resilient, Self-Reliant, and Secure Kids in an Age of Anxiety @ virtual
Oct 14 @ 7:00 pm
The Scaffold Effect: Raising Resilient, Self-Reliant, and Secure Kids in an Age of Anxiety @ virtual

Just as sturdy scaffolding is needed when building a structure that then comes down once the structure is stable and built, good parenting provides children with steady, warm, emotional nourishment on the path toward independence. Never-ending parental problem-solving and involvement can have the opposite effect, enabling fragility and anxiety over time. World-renowned child psychiatrist Harold Koplewicz will explain how to prevent and counteract the anxiety and emotional fragility prevalent in children and teenagers today, introducing a new parenting philosophy and strategies that give children the tools to flourish on their own.

This is a free event, but registration is required. Registration is available now through our new system.

Take Root - October: Who Knows the Show/Aya Jane Saotome & Nattie Trogdon and Hollis Bartlett @ Green Space | New York | United States

TAKE ROOT IS A MONTHLY CURATED SERIES THAT SUPPORTS DANCE MAKERS BY PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT A PAIRED EVENING OF WORK. PARTICIPATING ARTISTS BUILD THEIR BODY OF WORK; NETWORK WITH FELLOW CHOREOGRAPHERS, DANCERS, AND COLLABORATORS; AND FIND NEW AUDIENCES.

Who Knows the Show presents a journey from East to West and beyond! From rural Japan to New York City, everyday life and extraordinary events are told through dance, theater, comedy and music. Directed and choreographed by Aya Jane Saotome in collaboration with the dancers and musicians.

A collaged duet performance work, O Fallen Angel utilizes the body and performance as a vessel – a container for meaning-making. Confronting our collective and personal assumptions, perceptions, desires and relationship to the moving body on stage; this work is expressed through a patchwork of images, rigorous repetition, stillness, and deep formalism. O Fallen Angel is a vase for the audience to fill and a vase for the performer to hold. It is a work about ghosts and Enya, Florida, deserted places, mundane tasks, Haint Blue, relationship, desire, shame, rigor, repetition and what we hide under the surface – just right under the surface.
