Mapping the City with the Body - Pioneer Works
August 24, 2019 - Brooklyn

Our bodies help us recognize, understand, navigate, and even create the urban space. Traces of bodies in space, like the blue dot on Google Maps, provide us with clues about our own movement, metaphors that we use to talk about the city and its systems, and even measurement units. At the same time, cities can have a particularly interesting effect in bodies' self-awareness and their interactions with the environment, other bodies, and themselves (i.e. sidewalks, elevators, benches in public spaces, workspaces, supermarkets, and spaces for prayer and meditation). If we use our bodies as mapping tools, how does it transform our knowledge and experience? In this workshop, led by Vanessa Vargas and Nelesi Rodriguez, we will use cartography as a framework to explore corporeal and social practices. This event will take place off-site at Governors Island, Nolan Park 8B, which is accessible via ferry from Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Tainted Love 80's Dance Party - The Bell House
August 24, 2019 - Brooklyn

Ages 21+ Soft Cell's pioneering 1981 cover of the Northern Soul classic, "Tainted Love," is the inspiration for this awesome 80s dance party. Building on a solid foundation of New Wave, we'll dig deeper into the catalog of massive hits and overlooked misses from the late 70s through the early 90s - pivotal years in musical history that blurred the lines between Analog and Digital, Disco and Synthpop, Funk and Hip-Hop. A time when Alternative was called Post-Punk, Indie actually meant independent, and Throbbing Gristle's "Hot on the Heels of Love" surely could have been alongside Blondie's "Heart of Glass" on the charts...with today's perspective. Other passions include CBGB-era New York, Batcave-era London - Punk Rock, Glam Rock, Kraut Rock, Girl Rock, Dad Rock, Rockabilly, Ska, Machine Soul, Blue-Eyed Soul, Darkwave, Coldwave - plus some guilty pleasures in the (strictly) Old-School Rap department.

Through September 22, 2019 - New York

Learn about Hudson River Park's wildlife by joining knowledgeable naturalists on guided nature walks throughout the summer along the Park's esplanade. Each nature walk is unique and offers a one-of-a-kind treasure hunt-like experience. Park Naturalists will meet participants at the Christopher Street Fountain, just north of Pier 40 at 9 a.m. sharp. Please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Loud noises and barking tend to startle wildlife and reduce viewing opportunities - please be considerate and leave your dog at home.
