Nuyorican Poets Cafe at HEHG

Wednesday, May 24, 2017
7 – 9:30pm

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
2180 3rd Avenue
New York, NY 10035

Founded in 1973, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe began as a living room salon in the East Village apartment of writer and poet Miguel Algarin along with other playwrights, poets, and musicians of color whose work was not accepted by the mainstream academic, entertainment or publishing industries. Since then, Nuyorican Poets Cafe has served as a home for groundbreaking works of poetry, music, theater and visual arts with weekly events for the creative and curious.

For the event at HEHG, Nuyorican Poets Cafe has invited some of their poets to perform written works followed by an open-mic slam session, open to anyone interested in the art form.

Performers:
Advocate of Wordz
Shanelle Gabriel
Craig "muMs" Grant
Jaime Lee Lewis


This event is a collaboration with Hunter College's Center for Puerto Rican Studies (CENTRO).

The Creative Stage: in Performance

The Creative Stage: in Performance

Saturday, May 20, 2017
3pm

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
2180 3rd Avenue
New York, NY 10035

Please join us for a very special performance by the theater troupes of The Creative Stage. 

Imagine the genius of Mozart, the fun of improv style sketches, singing, dancing, and a bunch of New York City third graders, all mixed up in an original sketch comedy musical extravaganza! This rollicking performance was developed in collaboration between the professional performing artists and New York City kids. The result is a hilarious, imaginative, and completely original performance sure to delight kids and adults, alike.

The Creative Stage offers a variety of uniquely creative performing arts programs for youth. Founded by international opera singer, arts educator, and producer Madeline Bender, innovative classes such as Musical Theater Builders, Dancing Designers, Puppet Theater Builders, and Instrumental Story Tellers, The Creative Stage works with a number of schools in Harlem and Upper Manhattan and professional artists, designers, actors, and musicians to build creative projects for the stage.

NÎCE HOLE*
The comedic arts collective Talk Hole (b. 2015, New York), will stage a takeover of the HEHG. A symposia like no other, this one-night only, immersive banquet of avant-garde performance will be nothing less than a total gut renovation of the classic French salon borrowing themes of satire from The Incoherents.

Talk Hole is Steven Phillips-Horst and Eric Schwartau.

*“Nice” as in Nice, France, the city on the Mediterranean coast.
