|November 1, Tuesday - December 4, Sunday||PARTY PEOPLE (UNIVERSES Theater Company)
at Anspacher Theater
Admission: $25 $50 $60
Con Sabor Latino’s “Montuneando con Marysol” highly recommends “Party People”, a theatrical production being brought to New York City this November by the award-winning UNIVERSES ensemble.
UNIVERSES is widely known for their fusion of theater, poetry, jazz, hip-hop, politics, down home blues and Spanish boleros, and makes their Public Theater premiere with an explosive new work about the complicated legacies of the original Black Panther Party and the Young Lords Org/Party.
UNIVERSES created PARTY PEOPLE based on dozens of interviews with members of these ground-breaking, society-changing groups. PARTY PEOPLE imagines a present-day reunion at an art opening curated by two young counter-culturalists; but the curators themselves have complex relationships with the Party members, who fought injustice and provided free food and medical care for their communities—often at the expense of the people who loved them most. Old wounds and generational divides collide in this astonishing, multi-media theatrical event about the price of being a revolutionary, and what it means for those who come after.
The members of UNIVERSES (Steven Sapp, Mildred Ruiz-Sapp and William Ruiz aka Ninja) and Liesl Tommy invite audiences of every age, color and creed to join them as they continue to revolutionize American theater and explore the fight to bring power to the people, and the people to power.
Party People is developed and directed by Liesl Tommy (Eclipsed, The Urban Retreat) and was commissioned and originally produced by Oregon Shakespeare Festival as part of American Revolutions: the United States History Cycle.
WBAI’s unique history as a non-commercial radio station interweaves with that of the Young Lords and Black Panther parties here in New York. Current WBAI hosts/producers Mickey Melendez and Felipe Luciano remain part of that BAI/YL connection today.
CSL/McM supports Party People and UNIVERSES as part of our mission to bring “Issues of the Latino Community” to the airwaves and provide opportunities for WBAI listeners to gain awareness and empowerment around issues that impact us still in 2016. We recommend Party People as it portrays the struggles and strides of the Young Lords and Black Panther eras, which left their indelible mark on the Black and Latino experience in the United States.

|November 5, Saturday - November 26, Saturday||At Dusk (Westbeth Home of the Arts)
6:00pm at Westbeth Gallery, 55 Bethune Street, New York, NY 10014
A show about dusk that does not depict the setting sun, but objects and landscapes seen through its light. It is a show about abstract concerns that take place at this time – such as reversal, replacement, transformation, and reflection. Avri Ohana and Joan Roberts Garcia maintain that by having an intuitive visual conversation about that light, presented through their unique perceptions, mediums, and styles – a bit of dusk’s magic will be captured and witnessed. The show will be a type of installation, of a shared awe and aesthetic, expressed in two distinct ways.
