YEKTAI: Manoucher Yektai; Nico Yektai; Darius Yektai

Moran Gallery

This exhibition traces the familial artistic legacy of patriarch Manoucher Yektai and his two sons: painter/sculptor Darius and furniture maker/sculptor Nico. Manoucher Yektai’s life has brought him through three cultures in three countries: Iran, France, and the United States. His trajectory can be seen as a search for Modernism beginning in Iran, where under Islamic strictures about imagery, free artistic expression was not available, then to the ripe ambience of the School of Paris, followed by excitement of the emerging New York School. Manoucher’s life in the arts directly influenced his sons and the path that they chose. The similarities and differences of their work and their visions will be examined.

As a group, participants will discuss their vision of our community and decide upon a particular need someone or a collective within our community has. We will come up with a plan for addressing, in a simple and concise way, how we might like to show up for this cause. In conjunction with this we will also create a theater presentation based on this experience to share on the stage of The John Drew Theater for an audience.

“A Rover’s Eye View of the Ancient Surface and Climate of Mars” with Dr. Joel Hurowitz,
SUNY Stony Brook and a Deputy Principal Investigator in NASA’s 2020 Rover mission

For nearly a decade, the international program of Mars exploration has been guided by a remarkably useful framework that describes how Mars’ environmental conditions have evolved in the context of time-dependent changes in the composition of rock and soil deposits at the Martian surface. Built on the basis of observations by the instruments onboard the European Space Agency’s Mars Express Orbiter, this framework describes an early era of Earth-like surface environments that gave way to a far more arid environment in which surface water was acidic and salt-rich. Ongoing observations by Mars Express and the higher-resolution instruments onboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have continued to refine and extend this paradigm, but as is the case on Earth, the greatest insight into the evolution of surface environments comes from close-up examination of the sedimentary rock record. In-situobservations of sedimentary rocks by NASA’s Opportunity and Curiosity rovers enable evaluation of hypotheses developed from orbit, and reveal that interactions between iron-rich waters and the atmosphere have played a critical role in the evolution of the Martian surface.

JDT Lab: Ancient History by David Ives

A staged reading with Stephanie Linas and Daniel Schwait

Jack and Ruth, a seemingly perfect match, are suddenly faced with the question of marriage. In this smart and spirited play, serious differences, previously swept under the rug, are now forced into the light. She is culturally Jewish and her parents reject her dating outside the faith; he is a lapsed Catholic who scorns organized religion. She enjoys the finer things in life while he is happy to live with little means. She wants to get married and have a family. He has been married before and vows never to do so again. They make their cases with razor sharp wit and poignant pleas, but is staying together the right thing to do?

FREE! Reservations strongly encouraged at https://give.guildhall.org/JDTLab.

Broadway HD presents a Screening of Buried Child by Sam Shepard

$18 ($16 Members)

Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child returns 20 years after its last major New York production, with this revival by The New Group in association with Lisa Maitlin, directed by Scott Elliott. Dodge (Ed Harris) and Halie (Amy Madigan) are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons (Rich Sommer and Paul Sparks). When their grandson Vince (Nat Wolff) arrives with his girlfriend (Taissa Farmiga), no one seems to recognize him, and confusion abounds. As Vince tries to make sense of the chaos, the rest of the family dances around a deep, dark secret. This wildly poetic and cuttingly funny take on the American family drama gleefully pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and our homes.

JDTLab: GUTLESS & GRATEFUL by Amy Oestreicher

Amy had ambitious plans for Broadway, until she abruptly developed a blood clot the week before her high school senior prom. After being rushed to the hospital, her stomach exploded in the operating room, and after both her lungs collapsed, she nearly died. After waking up from a coma several months later, she was told she no longer had a stomach, and it was unknown whether she would ever be able to eat or drink again . After 27 surgeries and six of the past ten years unable to drink a drop of fluid, Amy’s digestive system was miraculously reconstructed and she learned that the human spirit heals through “gutsiness”, gratitude, and an overabundance of humor.

Amy Oestreicher is an artist, author, speaker for RAINN and TEDx, writer for The Huffington Post, award-winning health advocate, actress and playwright, eagerly sharing the lessons learned from a decade of trauma through her writing, performance, art and speaking.  Amy’s story and show have appeared on the TODAY Show, CBS, WNBC Cosmopolitan, Seventeen Magazine, Unmistakable Creative, Good Housekeeping, among others, and her writings have appeared in over 70 notable lifestyle, wellness, and arts publications.  Amy’s “beautiful detour” inspired her to create the #LoveMyDetour movement, a campaign inspiring people to flourish because of, rather than in spite of challenges- also the subject of her TEDx Talk and upcoming book, My Beautiful Detour. Oestreicher will be giving her second TEDx Talk this February.

Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical is staged for the first time at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas.
