RR: Icons in Ash

October 30, 2018
9:00 pm -

Icons in Ash, Reimagine Death

Icons in Ash, Reimagine Death an evening with songs about death, grieving, and consoling. Inspired by Heide Hatry’s portraits made of cremated remains, who wants to reintegrate life and death: to touch death, work with death, to let it speak in its mundanity, its grandeur, its familiarity and its mystery, its uniqueness and its universality, to redeem it from oblivion, to give it its own life again.

Musicians include
Queen Esther,
John Hudak,
Christine Isherwood,
Hot Glue & The Gun (Carrie Klein and Joel McGlynn)
Jane LeCroy
and others.

Bios:
Queen Esther, the Grand Prize winner of the 2008 Jazzmobile Vocal Competition, performs internationally and forges her own sonic path with her jazz collective and her Black Americana outfit The Blue Crowns. Released in 2015, her critically acclaimed album The Other Side “…the most exciting Afro-Americana album of the year” is garnering airplay worldwide “…a brutal, original, explosive singer.” (Vanity Fair)

John Hudak has been interested in sound and music from the age of four when he began to play piano. In recent years, he has focused on digital collage and short video pieces (Instagram: possibility_pictures), but has not ceased creating minimalistic sound pieces based on nature (as soundtracks for his videos).

Hot Glue & The Gun (Carrie Klein & Joel McGlynn), a indie duo, work and play with transformation and collaboration in their song, performance and visual art. Since they began writing and performing together in 2014, they have continually sought to sink into the mysteries of human experience: birth, life, death, love, fear, poetry, harmony…

Christine Isherwood is a Voice Movement Therapist, who teaches “Singing The Psyche,” the Voice Movement Therapy Training, and workshops internationally. She has written and performed in political musicals, toured the UK and Europe with theatre groups and bands. Largely silent these past few years, she has been tending to dying family members.

Jane LeCroy is a NYC based poet, singer and performance artist who fronts the avant-pop band, The Icebergs, and the psychedelic experimental music project, Ω▽Ohmslice. She teaches writing, and her book, Signature Play, a multimedia book of lyrical poems, published by Three Rooms Press was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
She has also released two music albums and is performing at many venues in NY.

Heide Hatry is an NYC based German artist, mainly known for her conceptual work using unconventional materials. Her most recent body of work, Icons in Ash, consists of portraits made from the cremated remains of their subjects, a social art project that has made a significant impact on the lives of their survivors and contributed to a re-imagining of our relationship to the dead.

Grief is totally bonkers! It was recently reported that a grieving orca carried her dead calf for a total of 17 days on what scientists are calling a “tour of grief.” After the sudden death of her dad, filmmaker Shaina Feinberg went on her own tour of grief. She spent the first six months filming a movie about her grief - forcing her mom to write songs for her deceased father, forcing some of her friends to re-enact her father’s death and forcing other friends to dress in her father’s clothes and do their best imitation of him. The result is Senior Escort Service - a funny and sad meditation on grief. After she completed the movie, Shaina was curious how other people processed their own grief. Using humor, music and, of course, some Power Point presentations, The Good Grief Show brings together comedians, storytellers and musicians to explore some of the ways that people deal with the loss of a loved one. Featuring Mike Brown, Karolena Theresa, Joe Schiappa, Jeff Seal, Adira Amram, Drae Campbell, Corn Mo and Shaina Feinberg. This show is in conjunction with Reimagine End of Life - a week of events that explore big questions about life and death.

Andrew Martin & Chaya Bhuvaneswar

October 14, 2018
7:00 pm -

Andrew Martin’s stories have appeared in The Paris Review, Zyzzyva, and Tin House’s Flash Fridays series, and his nonfiction has been published by The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The Washington Post, and other publications. Early Work is his first novel.

“The people in Andrew Martin’s Early Work have it all—youth, intelligence, ready wit, readier irony, terminally knowing tastes in books and music, affordable rents, abundant abusable substances, prolific sexual lives, even endearing dogs—and it’s perversely exhilarating to watch them, despite their fits of good-heartedness, turn a bucolic bohemia into a hipster hellscape. This is one smart, funny, scary novel.” —David Gates, author of Jernigan and The Wonders of the Invisible World

“What a debut! Early Work is one of the wittiest, wisest (sometimes silliest, in the best sense) and bravest novels about wrestling with the early stages of life and love, of creative and destructive urges, I’ve read in a while. The angst of the young and reasonably comfortable isn’t always pretty, but Andrew Martin possesses the prose magic to make it hilarious, illuminating, moving.” —Sam Lipsyte, author of The Fun Parts and The Ask

“Beautifully executed and very funny, Early Work is a sharp-eyed, sharp-voiced debut that I didn’t want to put down.” —Julia Pierpont, author of Among the Ten Thousand Things and The Little Book of Feminist Saints

“From a simple boy-meets-girl premise and from the most basic dramatic ingredients—ardor, art, alcohol, anxiety—Andrew Martin has concocted an exceptionally funny and disturbing first novel. I found myself thinking of Goodbye, Columbus and The Mysteries of Pittsburgh—from its title and its opening sentence on, Early Work achieves the feel of a classic debut.” —Chris Bachelder, author of The Throwback Special

Chaya Bhuvaneswar
Chaya Bhuvaneswar studied Indian poetic traditions with the support of an NEH Younger Scholars grant and as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, concentrating in Sanskrit. She has received a Time-Life Writing Award as well as a Yale Elmore Willetts Prize for Fiction. Her short stories have been anthologized in Her Mother’s Ashes 2, and featured on the Other Stories podcast. An Affiliated Fellow in Writing at the Boston University Center for the Study of Asia, she lives in Newton, Massachusetts. She is the winner of the Dzanc Books Prize for her collection of stories, White Dancing Elephants
Chaya Bhuvaneswar’s prose has appeared in Narrative Magazine, Joyland, Tin House, The Millions, Chattahoochee Review and elsewhere. Her debut short story collection WHITE DANCING ELEPHANTS received the Dzanc Books Prize and centers on #MeToo stories by diverse women and LGBTQ people of color. She is a practicing physician who grew up in Flushing, Queens.

NYPL Young Lions award-winner Amelia Gray said:
WHITE DANCING ELEPHANTS is a searing and complex collection, wholly realized, each piece curled around its own beating heart. Tender and incisive, Chaya Bhuvaneswar is a surgeon on the page; unflinching in her aim, unwavering in her gaze, and absolutely devastating in her prose. This is an astonishing debut.

Jimin Han, author of Little A’s A SMALL REVOLUTION, wrote the following:

“In White Dancing Elephants, Bhuvaneswar’s daring mix of ancient, contemporary, and dystopic stories carries us to the heart of rarely exposed longing, loss, the politics of violence and endurance in remarkable, elegant, heart-stopping prose.
