Red enameled alligator encases three
cloth sacks of unified survival. Beneath zipper
#1 waits five nickels, bottle of glittered nail
polish, miniature journal, handful of pens, only
one still wearing cap. Skip #2, it is stuck
shut and whatever is in there has been labeled
unnecessary and forgotten. #3 never closes,
most-used, most-important, must remain
accessible, always. Checkbook teeters
against tightly-capped Crazy
Glue, shades sunglasses from potential scuffs
from engraved silver cardholder, coupon folder, ring
of 37 keys, only 3 having known locks or ignitions
to turn. Ringing requires perimeter check. Pockets
bulge, aspirin and birth control semi-hidden
in tightly-snapped front pocket, portable
hard drive and note cards on Roman Architecture
threaten to spill out of left side pouch. Right
must be the never-ending musical bleeping,
incessant blipping of latest high-tech, supposedly
miniaturized, iPhone, trying to pass itself
off as both computer and lifeline when it is really
more crutch and anvil. Last stop, strap with photo
keyring dangling attachment. Favorite snapshot
of herself smiling at the world, makes everyone wonder
who or what was making her laugh that hard.

Exhibitions: Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui
February 8–August 4, 2013
The first solo exhibition in a New York museum by the globally renowned contemporary artist El Anatsui, this show will feature over 30 works in metal and wood that transform appropriated objects into site-specific sculptures. Anatsui converts found materials into a new type of media that lies between sculpture and painting, combining aesthetic traditions from his birth country, Ghana; his home in Nsukka, Nigeria; and the global history of abstraction.
Inspired by the real-life sex scandal that rocked Britain in the early 60s, English composer Thomas Adès’ 1995 chamber opera returns to BAM 15 years after its New York premiere at the BAM Majestic Theater (now the BAM Harvey Theater). In this new production from New York City Opera, director Jay Scheib presents his genre-defying vision, integrating technology and daring physicality to this modern opera that plays off the public’s obsession with the tabloid controversy surrounding a series of Polaroid photos of Margaret Campbell, Duchess of Argyll, dubbed the “Dirty Duchess.” Through the prism of Campbell’s life story, and featuring Phillip Hensher’s libretto, Powder Her Face explores the intersection of gender, politics, and power.

DON CRISTÓBAL, BILLY-CLUB MAN
Abrons Arts Center
February 15-March 3
For centuries, the puppet Don Cristóbal — the Spanish version of Punch — has charmed audiences with his drunken, lusty billy-club wielding antics. But does he secretly struggle with his role as the Billy-Club Man and long for love and escape? Through experimental puppetry, clowning and live music, Don Cristóbal, Billy-Club Man explores the violent appetites of Cristóbal’s on-stage persona and follows him off-stage to reveal his poetic possibilities. Inspired by two comedic and surreal puppet plays by Federico García Lorca, the piece features shadow, hand, and large figurative puppetry by Erin Orr and evocative original music by Rima Fand.

The Foundry Theatre’s Good Person of Szechwan
Can we practice goodness and create a world to sustain it? In Brecht’s comic and complex play, this question is raised by one of his most entertaining characters — Shen Tei the good-hearted, penniless, cross-dressing prostitute, who is forced to disguise herself as a savvy businessman named Sui Ta so she can master the ruthlessness needed to be a “good person” in a brutal world.
Nadia Sirota: Baroque
To celebrate the release of her new album, Baroque (Bedroom Community / New Amsterdam), violist Nadia Sirota will perform music from the record, premiering Judd Greenstein’s “In Teaching Others We Teach Ourselves” for seven violas. Sirota’s unique interpretive voice has served as muse to some of the most widely respected composers of her generation, and Baroque features works written for Sirota by Daníel Bjarnason, Paul Corley, Missy Mazzoli, Nico Muhly, and Shara Worden. This album is the follow-up to Sirota’s debut, First Things First, which was a New York Times 2009 record of the year.

Filed under: THE WEEK/THE WEEKEND | Tags: 22, brooklyn, listings, magazine, new, the, week, weekend, york
As you may have noticed, we’ve been a little absent during your recent Weeks and Weekends. For a variety of very succulent reason we have decided to start condensing listings into a monthly version. Why you may ask? Aside from the volunteer nature of the magazine and the busy nature of our volunteers, we feel less is more and also want to give eventers the opportunity to get longer term exposure on the blog. Likewise, we’re looking forward to covering more events throughout the month. Anyhow, we hope you enjoy! Below are some FAQ’s. Anything you don’t see here that you have questions about please don’t hesitate to to contact us at the22magazine (at) gmail (dot) com
1) So now that you are switching to monthly, when do I have to submit by?
The last day of the previous month. Through Feb, as we transition, we will give some leniency to submissions deadlines.
2) How do I submit?
Same old way. Send us an email at the22magazine (at) gmail with the subject line “Submission, Event”
3) Does it cost anything?
4) I don’t see my event listed after I submitted it?
We try very hard to view every event we get. Some we like better than others, and we do curate listings. Please do not lose hope though, different month means different rules and you never know when you might be the perfect fit.
5) Can I submit if my event is outside of NY?
You can but currently we only list NY (and sometimes nearby) events.
6) I sent my listing but I did not get a confirmation email?
We don’t do confirmations for listings. Sorry.
7) What are some things I can do to help increase my chances of being listed?
Info, info, info. The more the better. Links to an event page with media and press release are amazing. If it’s a theater piece we LOVE preview videos. If it’s music, we LOVE to hear the actual music. If it’s art, that’s right, PICTURES. If it’s writing, we always like a link where we can read some of the author’s work
8) I’m pissed that I wasn’t listed and I want to write you an angry letter. How can I do that?
Well, first, make sure it’s really angry, cause we don’t read medium angry letters. In fact, if you could set it on fire and leave it on our doorstep all the better. Otherwise, we do actually take complaints seriously and will happily have a chat with you about any problems. Please email the22magazine (at) gmail (dot) com Please note, we do sometimes fact check submissions. This is not a personal attack on the event, but simply a professional courtesy to our readers. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to have a chat with us. Again, we’re looking to provide you and the readers an excellent, trustworthy, reading experience.

Well folks, it’s nearly that time. How do we know? Our inboxes are full, our eyes are strained, and our tentacles are a quiver with pure excitement for what is shaping up to be one of the most amazing volumes yet. As for you, oh dearly talented creative procrastinator, we still cannot wait to see what wonders you shall send us but please keep in mind there are merely ten days left to submit your work! As always submission is 100% free and we are thrilled to meet new amazing people who will always be considered for both the print volume and the blog. Thank you to the wizards of scissors, the mind melting soundscapers, and the scribes of clipped reason who have already sent work and thank you for keeping this project chugging along with your amazing talent. Now go submit!!
