Those Turbulent Sons of Freedom: Ethan Allen’s Green Mountain Boys and the American Revolution
Lecture by Christopher Wren, who uses archival research and dozens of primary sources to paint a vibrant portrait of Ethan Allen, a man whose reputation has been transformed by nostalgia and a mythic heroism that never truly existed in Allen’s lifetime. A reexamination of an often-misunderstood part of the American Revolution, Wren argues that Allen and his boisterous Green Mountain Boys were not the revolutionary heroes of lore, and left a legacy of disrespect of authority that continues to manifest itself in America today. 54 Pearl Street. $10
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
A site-responsive performance, pushit!! is a meditation on emotional labor and the impossibility of the “stage” as a place of freedom for the Black performer. The work is choreographed and/or sculpted around the social/political landscapes of the city/space/presenting body and the unique architecture of the building/private space. This work is the first in a series of the exercises in getting well soon, a project/meditation based on the loose and often used phrase indicating a hope of recovery. Check website for location.

“Shaking Morning, by Wild She Dances”
This work is an abstract exploration centered on themes of displacement, questioning what makes a home, and examining how loss, leaving, and new hopes can redefine the idea of home. “”Shaking Morning”” is a journey of chaos, familial bonds, survival, and is rooted in moments of tenderness, athleticism, and most of all, human connection. Wild She Dances is partnering with the International Rescue Committee, which advocates for the rights of refugees and immigrants, provides legal help for asylum seekers, and helps to place refugees in jobs, schools, and society. 280 Broadway $15-$20
