It’s the 3rd Annual Manhattan Wonderwalk! Come join us as we stroll nearly the entirety of the great Island of Manhattan. We will visit familiar spots and little known pathways; we’ll see gorgeous public art and mundane displays of beauty. There will also be site-specific performances along the way. You may walk part of the way or all the way, just buy your map for $20, and you’ll be able to find us at any point throughout the day. (NOTE: tickets are $10 for Secret City members.)

We’ll start by stretching together at 9:30am, up in Inwood Hill Park, departing at 10am sharp. We will follow a thrilling path of adventure, ending at the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge at midnight. That’s a 14-hour walk. With breaks and amazing surprises all along the way.

SUNDAY, September 11th Doors at 7, show at 8

The House of Yes circus family is growing out of control and beyond
the city limits of this fine town. We are proud to welcome some new
friends from lands far away onto our stage. Come witness the show
which ignited the spirit of Philadelphia; the riot that put the body
of the city inside it’s own imagination, and lifted the hearts of
many with a twist of experimentation and a sprinkle of black magic.
Phantasmagoria, a rare sideshow treat, is bursting at the seams with
traditional daredevil stunts — but where others aim to shock,
Phantasmagoria will envelop and enrapture you with one contorted tale.
Ringleader Alejandro Dubois leads you through a stellar exhibition of

Third edition of Crosscurrent’s international contemporary jazz festival


Third edition of Crosscurrent’s international contemporary jazz festival After the first two successful editions in 2008 and 2009 in Lombardy (region in Italy) we felt the need to extend international recognizability, distancing ourselves from the swamplands of nowadays Italian cultural politics. Our choice is mainly due to the necessity of paying homage to the most vital jazz scene, right where it developed. With crucial help of Italian agencies ExB and Akamu, arguably the best in Europe in promoting contemporary jazz musicians worldwide, we’ll serve an accurate selection of some of the most important cutting edge artists, presenting young musicians which have proved to the public their increasing ability to represent the most viable option for renewal of the jazz language and extablished figures, with universally recognized position in the history of music in recent decades, who have never abdicated to the imperative of meaningful expressive research. The presence of artists of different generations is a sign of a balance between innovation and historical perspective without which there couldn’t be a significant cultural policy. Associazione Crosscurrent, ExB & Akamu are proud to announce the third edition of Crosscurrent International Contemporary Jazz Festival at (Le) Poisson Rouge in New York City from 9th to 11th September, 2011. Crosscurrent 3 relies on cultural sponsorship by Anthony Braxton’s TriCentric Foundation, RAI Radio 3 (third channel of Italian National Public Radio), SIdMA (Italian Society of Afroamerican Musicology) and the Municipality of Brescia (Crosscurrent hometown). Crosscurrent 3 will be broadcasted in Italy by RAI Radio 3 in Italy and BBC Radio 3 showed interest to do the same in the U.K.. The festival, in previous editions, has counted on the presence of major international artists as William Parker, Amiri Baraka, Anthony Davis, James Emery, Hamid Drake, Corey Wilkes to name but a few. (READ MORE.)

Vibrating Body: New assemblage works by Ken Butler
Opening Saturday, Septermber 10, 6-9pm

Sideshow Gallery presents “Vibrating Body,” an exhibition of diverse assemblage works on panel by artist-musician Ken Butler.

Echoing his hybrid instruments and collages, these new works further abstract and transform the human-figure-instrument-body iconography he is known for and pushes it further into the realm of mechanical bio-structure and cybernetics, implying a sacred altar-like space referencing the cycle if deformation and re-formation. Constructed primarily of consumer detritus, social discards, and vernacular urban flotsam and jetsam, these works become inter-woven cyphers of the new resonant technological and turbulent meanings. Characterized by his obsessive desire to re-order the world around him, Butler’s multi-disciplinary creations can be difficult to describe as they bridge visual art, design, performance, and life itself in unusual ways. ever the urban bricoleur, the artist is a resourceful problem-solver committed to exploring and re-configuring our relationships to the objects around us.
