Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll

April 8, 2019 10:00am

General admission is $25 for adults; $17 for seniors; $12 for students; and free for Members, Patrons, and children under 12.

For the first time, a major museum exhibition will examine the instruments of rock and roll. One of the most important artistic movements of the twentieth century, rock and roll’s seismic influence was felt across culture and society. Early rock musicians were attracted to the wail of the electric guitar and the distortion of early amplifiers, a sound that became forever associated with rock music and its defining voice. Rock fans have long been fascinated with the instruments used by musicians. Many have sought out and acquired the exact models of instruments and equipment used by their idols, and spent countless hours trying to emulate their music and their look. The instruments used in rock and roll had a profound impact on this art form that forever changed music.

Radio Jarocho Returns to Lehman!

No Fear, No Die + For Ushari Ahmed Mahmoud

April 8, 2019 7:00pm

General Admission: $15

No Fear, No Die

Denis regulars Isaach De Bankolé and Alex Descas star in the director’s second narrative feature, an unflinching portrait of two immigrant black men living on the outskirts of Paris and caught up in the gritty underworld of cockfighting. Inspired by the writings of postcolonial philosopher Frantz Fanon, No Fear, No Die viscerally evokes the psychic trauma of life as an outsider in a majority-white society.

For Ushari Ahmed Mahmoud 

Dedicated to a Sudanese political prisoner, Denis’ contribution to an omnibus film commissioned by Amnesty International is a moving consideration of immigrant alienation.

General Admission: $15

The Intruder

April 9, 2019 7:00pm

General Admission: $15

Denis’ famously elliptical style reaches new heights of head-rush abstraction in this prismatic take on an autobiographical essay by philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy. The titular figure is perhaps the most enigmatic outsider in Denis’ cinema of outsiders: an aging hermit who journeys from the Alps to Korea to Tahiti in search of both a black market heart transplant and his estranged son.

Something Different

April 10, 2019 7:00pm

General Admission: $15

The iconoclastic style and subversive social commentary that Chytilová would soon unleash in full force in Daisies is already on display in her stunning first feature, which intercuts two parallel stories: one a documentary about an Olympic gymnast, the other a narrative about an alienated housewife. The result is an unsung landmark of feminist cinema, the opening shot in a war against patriarchal oppression that Chytilová would spend a career fighting.

Journey

April 10, 2019 9:30pm

General Admission: $15

“I was daring enough to want absolute freedom, even if it was a mistake.” So declares 74-year-old Věra Chytilová in this revealing documentary portrait, which finds the director reflecting on her life and career with the same uncompromising attitude she brought to her groundbreaking films. Interweaving interviews, home movies, and footage from Chytilová’s films, Journey is an often disarmingly candid look at a visionary artist.

Fruit of Paradise

April 11, 2019 7:00pm

General Admission: $15

Opening with a senses-ravishing, psychedelic vision of Eden, this tantalizing political allegory sets the story of Adam and Eve in a European health spa where a vacationing couple find themselves under the spell of a menacing stranger. A triumph of avant-garde provocation, Fruit of Paradise was Chytilová’s last film before the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia effectively quashed her career for the next seven years.

Family Film

April 11, 2019 9:30pm

General Admission: $15

One of the most daring and distinctive young voices in contemporary Czech filmmaking, Olmo Omerzu studied under Věra Chytilová at Prague’s renowned film school FAMU. Her irreverent spirit courses through this subversive mix of florid melodrama and deadly irony in which a bourgeois family implodes in spectacular fashion when mom and dad go away on vacation, leaving their teenage children to fend for themselves.

Stretch Music Festival

April 12, 2019 7:30pm - 11:00pm

Tickets: $25 Adult, $35 VIP

Grammy nominated Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah curates and performs his final Stretch Music Festival under his three year residency with Harlem Stage.

[Decolonializing Sound] The 3rd year of the Stretch Music Residency is focused on liberating sound from antiquated belief systems that inhibit our ability to truly hear one another. I have always felt the best way to communicate is to truly listen. So this year we’re intent on breaking down value distinctions surrounding how we hear and interpret composition, dispelling long held and completely false notions that cultures that prioritize melody & harmony are more valid then cultures that prioritize rhythm. Ending this notion is essential to truly hearing one another.

I feel strongly that the path we are embarking on will not only impact the artistic community by pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, but also the general community by working fervently to create a broader scope of what this art has to offer by improving access and engagement through inclusion, sonically and literally.

—Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah

Sold Out.

Caetano, Moreno, Zeca, and Tom Veloso

Brazilian cultural revolutionary Caetano Veloso has been a transformative international force since the 1960s, when he swirled bossa nova, art rock, and psychedelia into the world-shaking phenomenon known as Tropicália—a musical manifesto that wrapped anti-authoritarian political dissidence in a kaleidoscope of sound. In this special two-night engagement, the ever-evolving singer, composer, and activist is joined by his three sons—Moreno, Zeca, and Tom—for a family affair that zigzags across Veloso's restlessly innovative body of work: from swaying samba rhythms to pop experimentation and lyrics that swerve from the hallucinogenic to the subversive to the sublime.

The Jester and the Queen

April 12, 2019 9:00pm

General Admission: $15

This delirious, politically barbed fantasia swings wildly between reality and illusion as the reveries of a caretaker at a medieval castle—played by famed Czech mime Bolek Polívka—unfurl in a rush of dizzyingly expressionistic images. According to critic Jonathan Rosenbaum, “this feature is probably Chytilová’s best since the 60s… As in Daisies, her fascination with power and gender roles projects a dangerous, Dionysian sexuality.”

Apollo Music Cafe Celebrates Africa Now featuring Tosin and Allinor

April 12, 2019 10:00pm

Tickets: Starting at $22

The Apollo’s annual Africa Now music festival showcases contemporary musicians from the continent who fuse local musical influences with global sounds. This year, the festival’s theme is Africa Now: Dancehall, which examines the African diaspora’s influence on today’s African music scene.

A renaissance force to be reckoned with, the music of composer, vocalist and percussionist Tosin speaks highly of his African origin, coupled with his exploration of jazz, funk, rock, reggae and Latin American music. As a prolific composer, Tosin writes and sings in Yoruba, Pidgin English and English. Over the years, he has drawn inspirations from his musical influences in the likes of Tony Allen, Art Blakey, Dennis Chambers, Bob Marley, King Sunny Ade, Fela Kuti, Manu Dibango, Majek Fashek, Keziah Jones, Sting, Seal, Peter Gabriel, and Ebo Taylor. Originally from Ghana, West Africa, Allinor has always been influenced by the music of his motherland as well as his deep roots in spiritual music. Blending western blues, highlife and reggae with traditional music, he creates a soul stirring, mood setting style of melodic rhythms. He is Journey Man, ever shouldering his guitar as he travels, empathizing and warm to each person he encounters. Before he picked up his first guitar he had already written dozens of songs, and as his strumming acumen brightens so does his ability to croon the sentiments of regular people across the globe struggling to make ends meet, finding happiness and peace in small rewards and hard work. Both his warmth and his thoughtfulness come alive in his music as he pours himself through it.

Panelstory

April 13, 2019 4:15pm

General Admission: $15

One of the unsung masterpieces of Chytilová’s still largely obscure post-60s career, this stingingly satiric yet deeply human tragicomedy surveys the everyday absurdity of existence in a ramshackle, perpetually-under-construction prefab housing complex: a monument to Communist idealism that, in its forlorn shoddiness, becomes a symbol of its failings. Blending slapstick gags with a jagged vérité visual style, Chytilová fashions a devastatingly funny portrait of life in a (literally) crumbling society.

Wolf's Hole

April 13, 2019 6:30pm

General Admission: $15

Chytilová’s subversive take on the 80s teen horror movie assembles a gaggle of bratty adolescents for a mysterious skiing retreat at a snowbound cabin, where they find themselves plunged into a sadistic science-fiction social experiment. A tour-de-force of visceral filmmaking, Wolf’s Hole is both a gonzo genre joyride and a blistering allegory for the psychic violence wrought by authoritarian oppression.

Africa Now! Dancehall

April 13, 2019 8:00pm

Ticket prices start at $28. 

The influence of Africa and its culture is a global phenomenon, nowhere more evident than in music. This year’s annual concert, a highlight of the Apollo’s season, celebrates not only the best of today’s African music scene but spotlights how the music of the diaspora has impacted the continent.

In April 1980, reggae music icon, Bob Marley and The Wailers, traveled at their own expense to celebrate and perform at the independence ceremony of the newly formed African nation, Zimbabwe. Since then the connection between the Caribbean and Africa has only grown. This season’s Africa Now nods to this exchange with the theme, Africa Now - Dancehall. The concert will feature contemporary African musicians who have been strongly influenced by the musical traditions of reggae, dancehall and soca. The weekend will also include a film series in partnership with the New York African Film Festival and late night performances and DJ sets in the Apollo Music Café.

Combining slapstick visual gags with swipes at Czech racism and misogyny, Chytilová fashions a riotous satire that has gone on to become a cult classic in its home country.

April 14, 2019 1:30pm - 3:00pm

Price: $30 for Museum of the City of New York and New York Academy of Medicine Members | $45 General Admission

Back by popular demand! Situated on the East River between Manhattan and Queens, Roosevelt Island was once a site of healthcare innovation. It was here that antiseptics and cutting edge hygienic practices were first used to prevent infection and that physical rehabilitation was embraced for patients with injuries or chronic diseases. Led by Judith Berdy, president of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society, this walking tour explores the Island's abandoned hospitals and laboratories such as the Smallpox Hospital, the Lunatic Asylum, Goldwater Hospital, and the Strecker Memorial Laboratory, and the stories they tell about New York City's historic approach to public health.

The tour will take place rain or shine and begin promptly at 1:30 pm at the Roosevelt Island Visitor Center Kiosk at Tram Plaza, which is accessible by the Roosevelt Island Tram with an active MetroCard. It will be about 90 minutes in length and conclude on Roosevelt Island.

The Very Late Afternoon of a Faun

April 14, 2019 3:00pm

General Admission: $15

Chytilová’s third and final collaboration with writer-costume designer Ester Krumbachová—with whom she also co-scripted Daisies and Fruit of Paradise—is an unsparing portrait of an aging Don Juan who foolishly clings to youth by pursuing younger women. A pointed riposte to the libidinal wish-fulfillment fantasies peddled by so many male directors, this caustic comedy mercilessly skewers male vanity and gives women the last laugh.

The Apple Game

April 14, 2019 5:15pm

General Admission: $15

Chytilová had been forced by Communist censors into artistic silence for seven years when an international outcry prompted her return to filmmaking. Her comeback was this bold, feminist take on the battle of the sexes farce, a commercial success that re-established her as a leading light of Czech cinema. Centered on a love triangle between the staff members of a maternity ward, The Apple Game is remarkable for both its anti-patriarchal perspective and unflinching, almost documentary-like treatment of childbirth and abortion.

Filthy

April 14, 2019 7:15pm

General Admission: $15

The debut feature from Tereza Nvotová, one of Chytilová’s students at FAMU, is both a sensitive portrait of a 17-year-old girl processing the trauma of rape and a hard-hitting indictment of the Slovak mental health system which fails her. Carrying on the feminist social critique at the heart of Chytilová’s work, Filthy fearlessly confronts the stigma surrounding sexual assault in Slovakia in order to give voice to survivors.
