La Cancion en la Tormenta: The Coqui’s Quest

On the small island of Boriquen, the God Juracan has become upset, causing a wild storm to ravage the beautiful rainforest. El Coqui, the tiny but mighty little frog, must restore peace to the island with the help of the audience! This interactive quest is infused with Spanish language as well as traditional Puerto Rican song, dance, and mythology. Children will learn important lessons about taking care of their environment and their feelings. This production is a wonderful choice for children ages 5-10 and their families.

Indiosyncrasy
Jun
21
8:00 PM20:00

Indiosyncrasy

Indiosyncrasy is the coming-out story of “Nene” a New York Latino man coming to terms with repressed facets of his identity. In a desperate attempt to understand himself, he leaves his wife and two children and falls into addiction. “Nene” ultimately finds redemption as he battles against internalized homophobia, heterosexism and stereotypes.

Presented in mini tableaus and based on true life experiences Indiosyncrasy uses monologue, spoken word and Afro-Cuban song and dance to explore labels “Nene” has been given - husband, father, son, friend and faggot.

Indiosyncrasy is a lyrical and visual journey that is both personal and spiritual. Melendez delivers a lot of energy along with a provocative message that most of us need to be reminded of. One of the most important things he shows us is that while we all have idiosyncrasies, we are also all united in our humanity. NYTHEATRE.COM

One night only, Friday, June 21st, 2019 @ 8:00 pm.

Eventbrite: $15.00 Door: $ 20.00

Pass Forward
Apr

to May 3

Pass Forward

  • El Barrio's Artspace PS109 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Opening Reception: Saturday April 20, 6:00pm to 9:00pm

"Past Forward" is a multimedia group exhibit that explores art‘s autonomy not as a genuine theoretical claim but as strategic one, where the suggestion is that only by claiming that art is indemnified by its very nature against moral culture can we prevent the forms of censorship that art is regularly subject to; this show includes artworks by Angel Delgado, Armando Guiller, Frank Guiller, Paola Martinez, Alexis Mendoza, Naivy Pérez and Elio Rodríguez. But this strategic appeal to autonomy may purchase art‘s freedom only at the cost of denying art‘s power. Much of contemporary Cuban art seems haunted by the past, by ghostly apparitions that are reanimated in reproductive media. By using dated, passé, or quasi-extinct stylistic devices, subject matter, and technologies, this art embodies a melancholic longing for an otherwise irrecoverable past. “Past Forward” examines myriad ways into recent practice and in the process underscores the unique power of reproductive media while documenting a widespread contemporary obsession, both collective and individual, with accessing the past. The works included in the exhibition range from photography, painting, sculpture and installations.
