YOUR BRAINS will be in the game when attending the best events in the neighborhood this week. These 5 events are such a good brain gymnastics that you will be happy when your brain stops spinning in your head like a peanut 😉 Here they are!
Brooklyn Zine Festival kicks off tonight at Brooklyn Fire Proof in a big style with a bunch of great readers. You will see Tommy Pico from Bird Song, Michael Lala, Matthew Zingg and Allyson Paty from 1441 Writers Collective and Tom Blunt from Meet the Lady, to name a few. Also there will be a raffle 🙂
Norte Maar prepared another amazing collaborative ballet where dance is meeting sound and visual art. Choreographed by Julia Gleich with artistic collaboration of Paul D’Agostino, Audra and Morgo Wolowiec and music direction by Ryan Francis, The Broadman Areas looks really promising. The ballet explores human brain and its relation to human mind, and believe it or not the creators consulted even neuroscientists… We went to check out a rehearsal, and here is out post with audio interview of Julia Gleich and moving GIF images of the dancers. Tickets are $25 ($20 for students and seniors).
When we said your brain will be spinning like a peanut, we really meant it. On Thursday early evening, head to the Bushwick branch of Brooklyn Public Library (340 Bushwick Ave) for a discussion about acclaimed debut novel by Eleanor Henderson Ten Thousand Saints. We love the old fashion nature of the event! Additionally, this event is kicking off a series of similar brainiac events at the Bushwick branch of Brooklyn Public Library. Yes!
We wrote some time ago that Camel Art Space closed down and the members of the collective are moving into 17-17 Troutman building on Bushwick/Ridgewood boarder. It is true, and finally they are having the first opening at their new space called Parallel Art Space. New space is smaller, but slicker. We stopped by a couple of days ago when the construction was still in progress, so we can tell you the space is lovely! The first exhibition at Parallel Art Space is titled Alter Minimal – Lexicon Series Vol. 1 and will feature the works by Clinton King, Lance Lankford, Gary Petersen, Suzanne Stroebe, and Andrew Zarou.
You know that spring is definitely here, when you hear a drum circle from Maria Hernandez Park. This Sunday, our Jojo Soul who is an absolute music and beat geek, is organizing an all-inclusive drumming at a park. Bring your drums, percussion instruments, other instruments, pots and pans, buckets, or just clap and shout, and come to Maria Hernandez Park at 1PM. Bushwick Community Drum Circle will faciliate for excitement among drummers, musicians, families, and will be loose, all-inclusive, social rhythm! The key idea of the drum circle is to relax, listen, make friends, and to enjoy our beautiful community!
