Iceland.  Family.  Crisis…  Gunnar Oddmunson’s life is in ruins.  He is standing alone with a shovel in his hands, wondering how it all went wrong.  He was feeling lucky, successful, and had big dreams for the future before the Icelandic economy collapsed, setting a new world record in national bankruptcy. Now he dreams only of justice.  When his family abandons him and the bank takes his house and car, Gunnar’s ancient Norse desire for blood revenge awakens. The battle has begun…

Brought to you by the OBIE award winning and Drama Desk nominated theater company Wakka Wakka, SAGA features 30 puppets, ranging from 3 inches to 10 feet, portrayed by an international cast of puppeteers from Iceland, Norway, Ireland and the US.

 

Wakka Wakka Productions is a visual theatre company with a mission to push the boundaries of imagination by creating works that are bold, unique and unpredictable.  Since 2001 the company has created and produced six original works, which have toured extensively domestically and abroad.  (Saga is the seventh produced work.)  The productions have been highly physical, overlapping in a wide range of styles, including grotesque, absurd and clown, incorporating elements such as object manipulations, puppetry, masks and original music. 

 

In 2008, Wakka Wakka was awarded a UNIMA Citation of Excellence for Fabrik: The Legend of M. Rabinowitz, and nominated for a Drama Desk Award in the category of Unique Theatrical Experience. In 2011, Wakka Wakka’s Baby Universe (presented at Baruch Performing Arts Center) was nominated for three Drama Desk Awards, including Best Director of a Play, Best Music in a Play, and Best Sound Design of a Play.

Moroccan singer/composer/producer, MALIKA ZARRA is an exotically beautiful artist with a velvety, sinuous mezzo-soprano voice that has demonstrated a rare ability to communicate both powerful and subtle ideas and feelings in Berber, Moroccan Arabic, French and English. She is now an in-demand headliner at concert halls and festivals all over the world.

 

Malika was born in Southern Morocco in a little village called Ouled Teima. During her early childhood, there was always music and dancing in the house. After her family emigrated to a Paris suburb, she found herself straddling two very different societies.” I had to be French at school yet retain my Moroccan cultural heritage at home.” Malika was exposed to a wide variety of musical styles.  She cites fellow Moroccan Hajja Hamdaouia, Rais Mohand, the Lebanese-born, Egyptian-based ud virtuoso/composer Farid el Atrache, Um Kalthoum and Algerian singer Warda (Al-Jazairia) as major influences. She also absorbed albums by Ella Fitzgerald, Bobby McFerrin, Thelonious Monk, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin.

 

During her apprentice phase, when she became a fixture on the Paris scene, Malika performed at a variety of well-known clubs, including Festival L'esprit Jazz de St Germain, Sunside/Sunset and Cite de la Musique. In the beginning, she interpreted classic material strictly in the original languages -- then a breakthrough occurred. When I started to sing in Arabic, writing new lyrics for jazz standards, I found that people reacted really strongly.

 

In 2004, Malika decided to relocate to NYC. Having crafted a repertoire that incorporated her native Berber, Gnawa (a percussive form of religious trance music) and Chaabi (Arabic working class blues) heritages, the intellectual elegance of French pop, plus freewheeling jazz rhythms and techniques, her reputation as a solo act began to grow. Malika eventually recorded and/or sat in with Makoto Ozone, John Zorn, Tommy Campbell (Dizzy Gillespie), Will Calhoun (Living Color), Lonnie Plaxico (Cassandra Wilson), Michael Cain (Jack Dejohnette), Brad Jones (Ornette Coleman), Jacques Schwarz-Bart (Roy Hargrove), David Gilmore, Gretchen Parlato and many others. She has recently recorded a vocal quartet album for John Zorn’s released on Tzadik records in January 2010.Among the venues she has graced are the Carnegie Hall (opening for Bobby McFerrin) (NYC), the London Jazz Festival (UK), the Montreal Jazz Festival (Canada), the Opera House Lincoln Center (NYC), the Apollo Theater, the Festival du Monde Arabe (Canada), the Salzburg Jazz Festival (Austria), Festival Nuits d’Afrique Montreal (Canada), the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival (DC), Brooklyn Maqam festival (NYC), The Blue Note (NYC), The Jazz Standard (NYC), Joe's Pub (NYC), Sob's (opening for Sara Tavares) (NYC), Smoke Jazz Club (NYC), Brooklyn Academy of Music (NYC), Chorus Jazz club (Switzerland), Porgy & Bess Jazz club (Austria), Domicil jazz club (Germany), WDR 3 (Germany), Klub Cankarjevega doma (Slovenia).

 

Malika's debut solo album "On the Ebony Road" (2006), reveals a firm grasp of a richly diverse bouquet of references, fusing Orient and Occident, East and West, into a lively, sensual, fresh, and deeply poem of inclusion.

12:00 AM - 4:00 AM CCI's 11th Annual Symposium on Reputation: What is the Reputational Risk of Being Politically Active
Everyone agrees - a good reputation is much better than a bad one. Corporations have a legitimate stake in the increasingly complex national and international conversation about job and value creation, climate change, human rights and social issues, and an uncertain economic environment. For corporations that choose to engage in the conversation, what is the reputational risk of being politically active?

The panel of experts addresses this question, and includes: Peter Hirsch, EVP and Director, Reputation Risk, Ogilvy Public Relations; Alan Kelly, Founder and CEO, Playmaker Systems, LLC; and Peter A. Peyser, Principal, Peyser Associates.

The event is sponsored by CCI - Corporate Communication International at Baruch College/CUNY and is being held at and hosted by Pfizer Inc at 235 East 42nd Street, New York, NY. It is being offered in association with the Communication Leadership Exchange. Advance registration is required. Please use Symposium Registration Form. Click HERE for more information.

The Illinois Times wrote that guitarist Martha Masters “is on a swift and certain trajectory to star territory.” Her playing has been described as “seductive” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram), ‘intelligent and natural (Guitar Review), and “refined and elegant” (American Record Guide). She has received critical acclaim as a solo recitalist, as a chamber musician with Duo Erato, and as a soloist with orchestras. Recent concert seasons have included performances on concert series and at festivals in China, England, Denmark, Spain, Poland, Germany, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, and throughout the United States.

 

Martha’s first CD, Serenade, is now in its second printing, and her Naxos recital disc sold over 10,000 copies worldwide in the first year of its release. Her recording of Italian music was released in 2006 on the GSP label, and a recording of early 20th Century Spanish music was released on GSP in 2009. Her book, Reaching the Next Level, a method for experienced guitar students, was published in 2010 by Mel Bay, and has received critical acclaim.

 

In October of 2000, Martha won first prize in the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) International Solo Competition. In November of 2000, she also won the Andrés Segovia International Guitar Competition in Linares, Spain, and was a finalist in the Alexandre Tansman International Competition of Musical Personalities in Lodz, Poland. Prior to 2000, Martha was a prizewinner or finalist in numerous other international competitions, including the 1999 International Guitar Competition “Paco Santiago Marín” in Granada, Spain, the 1998 Tokyo International Guitar Competition, and the 1997 GFA International Solo Competition.

 

In addition to leading the guitar program and the LMU Guitar Festival at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, Martha teaches annually at the National Guitar Workshop Classical Summit in Connecticut and on WorkshopLive.com. She is the President of the Guitar Foundation of America, dedicated to supporting the instrument, its players and its music in the U.S. and throughout the world.

 

Martha received both the Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Peabody Conservatory, where she studied with Manuel Barrueco, and completed the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Southern California as a student of Scott Tennant.

Iceland.  Family.  Crisis…  Gunnar Oddmunson’s life is in ruins.  He is standing alone with a shovel in his hands, wondering how it all went wrong.  He was feeling lucky, successful, and had big dreams for the future before the Icelandic economy collapsed, setting a new world record in national bankruptcy. Now he dreams only of justice.  When his family abandons him and the bank takes his house and car, Gunnar’s ancient Norse desire for blood revenge awakens. The battle has begun…

Brought to you by the OBIE award winning and Drama Desk nominated theater company Wakka Wakka, SAGA features 30 puppets, ranging from 3 inches to 10 feet, portrayed by an international cast of puppeteers from Iceland, Norway, Ireland and the US.

 

Wakka Wakka Productions is a visual theatre company with a mission to push the boundaries of imagination by creating works that are bold, unique and unpredictable.  Since 2001 the company has created and produced six original works, which have toured extensively domestically and abroad.  (Saga is the seventh produced work.)  The productions have been highly physical, overlapping in a wide range of styles, including grotesque, absurd and clown, incorporating elements such as object manipulations, puppetry, masks and original music. 

 

In 2008, Wakka Wakka was awarded a UNIMA Citation of Excellence for Fabrik: The Legend of M. Rabinowitz, and nominated for a Drama Desk Award in the category of Unique Theatrical Experience. In 2011, Wakka Wakka’s Baby Universe (presented at Baruch Performing Arts Center) was nominated for three Drama Desk Awards, including Best Director of a Play, Best Music in a Play, and Best Sound Design of a Play.

In 2008, Wakka Wakka was awarded a UNIMA Citation of Excellence for Fabrik: The Legend of M. Rabinowitz, and nominated for a Drama Desk Award in the category of Unique Theatrical Experience. In 2011, Wakka Wakka’s Baby Universe (presented at Baruch Performing Arts Center) was nominated for three Drama Desk Awards, including Best Director of a Play, Best Music in a Play, and Best Sound Design of a Play.

Jayme Stone Folk Band Concert

Part of the WC2 Conference at Baruch College

 

Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 6pm

Tickets $25

Free Admission for Baruch students and WC2 Conference members


 

CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

 

As part of the International WC2 Conference at Baruch College, two-time Juno-award-winning banjo player Jayme Stone and his band will perform his original American Folk music in concert, music inspired by folk traditions from around the world.

 

His latest album “Room of Wonders” explores music from Norway, Sweden, Bulgaria, Brazil, Italy and North America. The repertoire includes a movement from Bach’s French Suite, a Moorish sword-fighting dance and Stone’s lush, edgy originals.

 

Stone thrives on unexpected inspiration: Japanese poetry, Brazilian literature, instruments he found while traveling in remote Malian villages. He finds it with influences as diverse as Anouar Brahem, Bill Frisell, and Toumani Diabaté. His Juno Award-winning albums, most notably Africa to Appalachia, both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling music.

 

The last chapter in Stone’s musical travelogue took place in Africa. He traveled there knowing what is still considered “news” to most people: that the hide-covered instrument with an “extra” drone string we call the banjo actually comes from West Africa. He became particularly curious about the music that may not have made it across the ocean on slave ships headed west from Senegal and Mali in the 1600’s. The resulting album “Africa to Appalachia” is a boundary-crossing musical collaboration with singer and kora maestro Mansa Sissoko.

Please RSVP to Jewish.studies.center@baruch.cuny.edu.

About the Exhibition:
Neo-Nazis have killed over 180 people in Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. This official statistic is a fraction of the crimes committed by neo-Nazis in contemporary Germany. More problematic than the number of neo-Nazis and the hate crime statistic is the overlap between neo-Nazi ideology and mainstream thinking, for example, when people “forget” that Jewish, Muslim, Black and Roma people as well as a great variety of immigrants and their descendants are an integral part of German history and of life in Germany today.

This exhibition is about that repeated, willful “forgetting” and its consequences. It is about antisemitism, racism, and neo-Nazi ideology -- the kinds of things that the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945 and German society’s long and earnest process of confronting the Holocaust were supposed to have done away with. Germany today is a solid, successful, and in some ways exemplary democracy, one that goes to great lengths to face up to its wrongful past. At the same time, antisemitism, racism, and neo-Nazism persist.

This exhibition is about the ways in which this society, historically and in the present, draws the line between those who belong and those who don’t, and about the role the confrontation with the Nazi past plays in such line drawing. By bringing this exhibition to the United States, the Amadeu Antonio Foundation seeks to amplify discussion about the necessity of facing up to the past and of actively opposing prejudice and hatred in the present.

The exhibition is located in the Baruch Performing Arts Center lobby, Lexington Ave. & 25th St., and is accessible from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm -- April 17 to May 13.
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Service Blueprint

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition: Germany after 1945: A Society Confronts Antisemitism, Racism and Neo-Nazism
Note: The exhibition is located in the Baruch Performing Arts Center lobby, Lexington Ave. & 25th St., and is accessible weekdays from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm -- April 18 to May 13.

An exhibition with photos and text about issues of racism, anti-Semitism, and neo-Nazism in postwar Germany created by the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, located in Berlin, Germany.

Neo-Nazis have killed over 180 people in Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. This official statistic is a fraction of the crimes committed by neo-Nazis in contemporary Germany. More problematic than the number of neo-Nazis and the hate crime statistic is the overlap between neo-Nazi ideology and mainstream thinking, for example, when people “forget” that Jewish, Muslim, Black and Roma people as well as a great variety of immigrants and their descendants are an integral part of German history and of life in Germany today.

This exhibition is about that repeated, willful “forgetting” and its consequences. It is about antisemitism, racism, and neo-Nazi ideology -- the kinds of things that the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945 and German society’s long and earnest process of confronting the Holocaust were supposed to have done away with. Germany today is a solid, successful, and in some ways exemplary democracy, one that goes to great lengths to face up to its wrongful past. At the same time, antisemitism, racism, and neo-Nazism persist.

This exhibition is about the ways in which this society, historically and in the present, draws the line between those who belong and those who don’t, and about the role the confrontation with the Nazi past plays in such line drawing. By bringing this exhibition to the United States, the Amadeu Antonio Foundation seeks to amplify discussion about the necessity of facing up to the past and of actively opposing prejudice and hatred in the present.

The exhibition is located in the Baruch Performing Arts Center lobby, Lexington Ave. & 25th St., and is accessible weekdays from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm -- April 18 to May 13.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition: Germany after 1945: A Society Confronts Antisemitism, Racism and Neo-Nazism
Note: The exhibition is located in the Baruch Performing Arts Center lobby, Lexington Ave. & 25th St., and is accessible weekdays from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm -- April 18 to May 13.

An exhibition with photos and text about issues of racism, anti-Semitism, and neo-Nazism in postwar Germany created by the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, located in Berlin, Germany.

Neo-Nazis have killed over 180 people in Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. This official statistic is a fraction of the crimes committed by neo-Nazis in contemporary Germany. More problematic than the number of neo-Nazis and the hate crime statistic is the overlap between neo-Nazi ideology and mainstream thinking, for example, when people “forget” that Jewish, Muslim, Black and Roma people as well as a great variety of immigrants and their descendants are an integral part of German history and of life in Germany today.

This exhibition is about that repeated, willful “forgetting” and its consequences. It is about antisemitism, racism, and neo-Nazi ideology -- the kinds of things that the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945 and German society’s long and earnest process of confronting the Holocaust were supposed to have done away with. Germany today is a solid, successful, and in some ways exemplary democracy, one that goes to great lengths to face up to its wrongful past. At the same time, antisemitism, racism, and neo-Nazism persist.

This exhibition is about the ways in which this society, historically and in the present, draws the line between those who belong and those who don’t, and about the role the confrontation with the Nazi past plays in such line drawing. By bringing this exhibition to the United States, the Amadeu Antonio Foundation seeks to amplify discussion about the necessity of facing up to the past and of actively opposing prejudice and hatred in the present.

The exhibition is located in the Baruch Performing Arts Center lobby, Lexington Ave. & 25th St., and is accessible weekdays from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm -- April 18 to May 13.

12:30 PM - 2:30 PM ETHICS in the FINANCIAL SERVICES
The financial services sector is enormous in size and importance to the economy. While the industry is highly regulated, ethical lapses do occur and often affect everyone. Today, the public seems to have the perception that the sector is more unethical than other areas of business. Even if you don’t work in the field, you’re a consumer of the services and you are being affected. Here's an opportunity to learn what the industry insiders have to say, and more importantly for you to ask questions and network!

Baruch students, faculty, and staff are cordially invited to attend the event, featuring Larry Zicklin, Jonny Frank, and Roman Matatov.

More problematic than the number of neo-Nazis and the hate crime statistic is the overlap between neo-Nazi ideology and mainstream thinking, for example, when people “forget” that Jewish, Muslim, Black and Roma people as well as a great variety of immigrants and their descendants are an integral part of German history and of life in Germany today.

This exhibition is about that repeated, willful “forgetting” and its consequences. It is about antisemitism, racism, and neo-Nazi ideology -- the kinds of things that the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945 and German society’s long and earnest process of confronting the Holocaust were supposed to have done away with. Germany today is a solid, successful, and in some ways exemplary democracy, one that goes to great lengths to face up to its wrongful past. At the same time, antisemitism, racism, and neo-Nazism persist.

This exhibition is about the ways in which this society, historically and in the present, draws the line between those who belong and those who don’t, and about the role the confrontation with the Nazi past plays in such line drawing. By bringing this exhibition to the United States, the Amadeu Antonio Foundation seeks to amplify discussion about the necessity of facing up to the past and of actively opposing prejudice and hatred in the present.

The exhibition is located in the Baruch Performing Arts Center lobby, Lexington Ave. & 25th St., and is accessible weekdays from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm -- April 18 to May 13.

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Debating High Frequency Trading

About the Program

High Frequency Trading (HTF) refers to the use of sophisticated algorithms and powerful computer systems to process securities’ transactions at exceptionally fast speeds.  Often, these trades are of a high volume and the positions are held for an extremely short time.  More than 50% of U.S. stock trades are the result of HFT.

Proponents of HFT claim the practice benefits capital markets and investors by reducing market volatility, lowering transaction costs and improving liquidity.  They are reluctant for government to introduce regulations which may hinder these benefits.

Those concerned with HFT argue risk controls are ignored or circumvented to obtain speed.  Opponents also point to recent academic studies which seem to indicate HFT actually increases bid-ask spreads and volatility.  They call for regulation ranging from a tax on high volumes of order cancellations to a licensing requirement for HFT firms.

Who’s right?  Join us on April 30th, hear from experts on both sides of the issue and decide for yourself.  The program will be followed by a networking reception.

Attempts On Her Life
Written by Martin Camps

Tue, April 30, 2013 @ 7:30pm

Wed, May 1, 2013 @ 7:30pm

The Baruch Fine & Performing Arts Department presents “Attempts On Her Life”, Martin Crimp’s groundbreaking experimental play written in 1997 and first produced by the Royal Court Theater, Britain’s leading national company dedicated to new plays by innovative playwrights from the United Kingdom and around the world. 

“Attempts On Her Life” revolves around Annie, the quintessential “other.” Throughout the course of the play, various people perceive her in different ways.  Questions are asked … is she an artist, is she a physicist, is she a mother, or is she a terrorist?  Is she alive or dead?  The most striking element of the play is that one person’s voice is never heard. It is Annie’s voice. 

Don’t miss this interesting play that was hailed by the critics when it was first produced in 1997.
