Enjoy a musical storytime interlude by one of our favorite uptown musical families! Musical Storytime are short musical children’s stories sung by the delightful Stephanie Bell with accompaniment by the amazingly talented and tuneful Jonathan Bell, and co-starring the slightly hungry, mildly impressed, and ever so handsome, Walter Bell.
New stories premiere every Tuesday at 10am on Inwood Art Works Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
NOTE: Even if you miss this event live you can go to Inwood Art Works social media channels and view it at any time.
Howl: Contemporary dance and spoken word. Double Take Dance (Ashley Carter & Vanessa Martinez de Baños) and Zara Lawler.
…”I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by wedding
planners, dieting, in shapewear,…” DoubleTake Dance presents a dance choreography to the spoken word performance of Zara Lawler. Choreographed by Vanessa Martínez de Baños
and Ashley Carter, and using text from the poem “Howl” by Amy Newman, dance and poetry come together to form a voice. In a collaborative project, they will be fusing various art forms as a means to explore the obscure and obvious ways in which girls/women are denied experiences, and are limited in
the world (or how they are viewed by the world). “Howl” explores the oppression outcasted women endure in a male-dominated, patriarchal culture, and the entrapments of their socio-gender. The artists will play with the juxtaposition of masculine/feminine, notions of androgyny, and the interplay of cadence with
movement.We are excited to announce the 2020 Higher Ground Festival will be happening from Oct. 3rd – Oct. 17th, virtually, in collaboration with Arts ON AIR livestream. The festival will be livestreamed on Arts ON AIR’s YouTube (Arts ON AIR) and Instagram (Arts ON AIR) as well as HGF’s Instagram (Higher Ground Festival), later to be posted on the HGF YouTube.
