PS21

Performance Spaces for the 21st Century (ps21) presents a festival of music, theater, variety, and dance performance each summer in Chatham. In June and July, the focus is on music—from around the world and throughtout history. This year's schedule includes the old-time folk of the Dom Flemons Trio, Indian classical master Steve Gorn, and the Mexican ensemble the Villalobos Brothers. This is followed by a series of music, live radio, and comedy performances from the end of June through July. The month of August is dedicated to the Chatham Dance Festival, featuring performances by widely celebrated contemporary dance companies. On July 3, Hudson Air Radio Theater presents classic and contemporary live radio theater on stage. On July 10, festivalgoers can enjoy an "evening of comic mayhem," with a variety of comedic performances by Nancy Rothman and Robert Zukerman, featuring musical guest Amanda Boyd. To wrap up July, the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus will perform a variety of big-top-inspired feats on the 24th. The Chatham Dance Festival opens with Brian Sanders's JUNK on August 7, followed by Gallim Dance on the 14th and both Keigwin + Company and works in progress by Dance Omi Alumni titled "So You Think You Don't Understand (Modern) Dance?" on the 21st. The festival concludes with the internationally renowned Parsons Dance Company returning for their 10th consecutive season. Ps21chatham.org

  • Follow that Spark: Brooklyn Designer Turns Farm Visit into Book that Gives Back

    In August, Brooklyn-based digital designer Michelle Layne Lawson read an article on Chronogram's website about Tomorrow, Tomorrow, a 150-acre farm animal sanctuary in Columbia County that was struggling to raise funds to stay afloat. Within a few days, Lawson was on her way up to Hudson to visit the farm. And what began as casual cute animal pics turned into a coffee table book that is being sold to raise funds for the sanctuary and a renewed sense of creative vocation. Don't mind us, we're just sobbing over here.
