HyperGender Burlesque Presents: CATHOLIC SCHOOL (10:00 PM - 11:00 PM)
WOW Cafe Theater
59-61 E. 4th Street, 4th floor
(btw Bowery & 2nd ave)
New York, NY 10003
Hold on to your rosary, because HyperGender is welcoming a new member to our production team: Jesus. On January 4, we're starting off 2014 with some very special stations of the cross. The wafers are stale, the wine's lukewarm, and we're keeping the lights eerily dim. So wear your starchiest Catholic School uniform, breathe incense till you sneeze, and receive Christ's body in this Queerest of Holy Communions. HyperGender has collectively spent (?) years in Catholic school, and tonight we're going to ignite all those years of repressed sexuality into an explosion of bitterest angst and deepest joy. You might even get a little wet ... with Holy Water, of course.

JZ Bich, Mercedes Matilda, and Jean va Gin bring you a lineup of born-sinning burlesque legends Anti Social, Eva Arachnia, The Luvely Rae, Foxy Squire, Ana Drogyna, Deb au Nare, Tokyo Belle ... and maybe a surprise guest or two.

Some may call us blasphemous, but we say we are what NYC is about: queerness, glitter and worship of all things different!  

Buying tickets early highly recommended due to our limited seating capacity!

Allison Schulnik: Eager (NYC) (6:00 PM)
ZieherSmith is pleased to present Allison Schulnik’s second solo exhibition at the gallery featuring the world premiere of her fourth animated film since 2000, Eager, along with related paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. Drawing from sources both autobiographical and inspirational, Eager is a poignant journey set between a timeless void and supernatural abundance; it is a celebration of the moving painting. An experiment in animation as dance (the artist was trained as a dancer), its subjects are choreographed in abstract, emotive gestures. The line is blurred between the material elements of painting (texture, color, form) and the physicality and movement of ballet and theater.  At over 8 minutes, the film is her longest to date.

LIVE From NYPL: Rebecca Mead (7:00 PM)

For Rebecca Mead, that book was George Eliot's Middlemarch, which she first read as a young woman in an English coastal town, and reread regularly throughout her life. In My Life In Middlemarch, the New Yorker writer revisits her own past and Eliot's work in a new way, by leading us into the life that the book made for her, as well as the many lives the novel has led since it was written. Employing a structure that mirrors that of the novel, My Life in Middlemarch blends biography, reporting, and memoir, taking the themes of Eliot's masterpiece--the complexity of love, the meaning of marriage, the foundations of morality, and the drama of aspiration and failure--and bringing them into our world. Mead comes to LIVE from the NYPL to explore the enduring power of Middlemarch, and how the books we read help us read our own lives.
