GRAY - In downtown New York City, in 1979, painter Jean-Michel Basquiat and performance artist Michael Holman founded their industrial-sound band, Gray. Jean named the band after Gray’s Anatomy, an important reference source for his paintings and the perfect name to capture the haunting, machine-like ambient music the band wrote and performed. “They worked the Mudd Club, CBGB’s, and Hurrah’s in New York, where Blondie and the Talking Heads were at that time emerging. They performed, in other words, at the epicenter of New Wave. 

JUSTIN STRAUSS - Few DJs could adequately represent the last three decades of New York nightclub history - no less do so with such iconic credentials as Justin Strauss. Since he was 17, when his first band was signed to Island Records, Justin has had a career that reads like a Who’s-Who of the music scene, spinning at nearly every dance club that you’d ever want to go to. Starting as DJ at New York’s legendary Mudd Club, he spun his way through The Ritz, Limelight, Area, Tunnel, M.K., Life, Centro Fly and more, pioneering his own distinctive sound, and becoming one of the most sought-after remixers and producers not just in New York, but in the world. He has worked with the gamut of artists - Depeche Mode, Sergio Mendez, Tina Turner, Jimmy Cliff, B-52s, Luther Vandross, Malcolm McClaren, Skinny Puppy, Goldfrapp, to name a few (see full list) – and on over 200 records!

Artists scheduled to perform include Tony Award-winning actress/singers Laura Benanti and Victoria Clark, acclaimed author Tayari Jones, and composers Steven Lutvak, Ricky Ian Gordon, and Dylan Mattingly.

Oscar, Grammy, and Tony Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are also expected to appear

New York, NY - May 2nd, 2018 - Ucross Foundation, the prestigious artists’ residency program and creative lab for the arts, will host the inaugural Ucross Gala & Awards Dinner on June 5th, 2018, at The Appel Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Internationally acclaimed author Annie Proulx, an alumna of Ucross and former member of its Board of Trustees, will be presented with the Ucross Award for Distinguished Achievement in the Arts, by David Remnick, Editor in Chief of The New Yorker.

The Ucross Gala & Awards Dinner celebrates the organization’s 35th year supporting writers, visual artists, composers, and choreographers with the gift of uninterrupted time and studio space for creative work. The Gala will include an art exhibition and sale as well as performances and readings by a number of exceptional Ucross alumni, including, Steven Lutvak (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder), Ricky Ian Gordon (The Grapes of Wrath, opera), bestselling author Tayari Jones, author and Vanity Fair contributor Elissa Schappell, trumpeter Frank London, composer/pianist Dylan Mattingly, and singer-songwriter Kate Schutt. Special guests will include Broadway stars Laura Benanti and Victoria Clark. Ucross alums Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman, Dear Evan Hansen) are also expected to appear.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the impressive achievements of our Ucross alumni during our first New York Gala & Awards Dinner. We hope the event brings added recognition to the importance of artists in our culture, and helps promote the creative partnerships Ucross is known for,” said Sharon Dynak, President of Ucross.

Proulx is the author of numerous novels, short story collections, and a memoir, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Shipping News, which was partly written during Proulx’s residency at Ucross.  Her short story Brokeback Mountain was first published in The New Yorker in October 1997, and went on to win the National Magazine Award for Fiction in 1998. It was later before adapted into an Oscar-winning film.

The Ucross New York Gala & Awards Dinner coincides with the American premiere of the opera adaptation of Brokeback Mountain at New York City Opera, composed by Pulitzer Prize winner and MacArthur Fellow, Charles Wuorinen, with libretto written by Annie Proulx, which opens on May 31 at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater, after a successful run in Europe.

Ucross fosters the creative spirit of deeply committed artists and groups by providing uninterrupted time, studio space, living accommodations, and the experience of the majestic High Plains of Wyoming, while serving as responsible stewards of its historic 20,000-acre ranch. Located at the confluence of three creeks, Ucross brings artists into the heart of an unparalleled landscape. In addition to fostering the work of individual artists, Ucross is a working place for groups and a multi-disciplinary lab for creative thinking – hosting educational programs, conferences, and special events. To date, the Ucross ranch has been an artistic home to 10 Pulitzer Prize winners, eight MacArthur Genius winners, eight Tony Award winners, six National Book Award winners, and two Academy Award winners, among dozens of additional award winners. Ucross also participates in a number of partnerships with national organizations that share the foundation’s vision and values. Among them are the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Awards, the Sundance Institute Theater Program, the Whiting Foundation, Yale University, and the Warhol Foundation. A full list may be found here.

Damsel

An affectionate reinvention of the western genre that showcases the Zellner Brothers' (Kumiko the Treasure Hunter) trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor and unique brand of humanism, , Damsel follows an affluent pioneer Samuel Alabaster (Pattinson) as he ventures across the American Frontier to find and marry the love of his life, Penelope (Wasikowska). As Samuel traverses the Wild West with a drunkard named Parson Henry (David Zellner) and a miniature horse called Butterscotch, their once-simple journey grows treacherous, increasingly blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.

No Escape: Uncanny Mindbenders

Calling all foley artists, lizard lovers, and disturbed comedians! It's time for our annual Trapped program, host to short films most bizarre and disquieting. These are animations of girls who lose something they can’t remember; documentaries about the steely gaze and distant reserve of drone pilots; and tragic fantasies about the father of alternating current and his pigeon, all of which ask questions you probably haven’t considered before: Have you ever stepped on an anthill and not given it a second thought? Will the sound of the foley artist be heard? Is it a nervous breakdown or the best set of your life? These are cinematic spectacles you won’t soon forget.

You must be 21+ to attend the after party.

Ariana and the Rose's "light + space"

unnamed (3).jpg

After a sell-out event last year, House of Yes offered Ariana a three-party residency that combines an avant-garde, galactic aesthetic with non-stop dancing, virtual reality, interactive characters, and a full performance by Ariana herself.

Here is a trailer from the last event (with a cameo by myself near the beginning getting my glitter make-up done by the on-site glam team!): https://youtu.be/fzSJV8dGNBkL

More info on "light + space" is here: https://shorefire.com/releases/entry/ariana-and-the-rose-to-host-nyc-residency-for-galactic-immersive-live-music-party-at-house-of-yes

Ariana has been covered in the past by Billboard, Vogue, Complex, Vice Noisey and Paper Magazine who recently debuted an interactive music video of Ariana's that can be experienced via virtual reality at "light + space": http://www.papermag.com/ariana-and-the-rose-2567623121.html

Let me know if you wanna come check it out? It really is a next-level experience!

Your Love, Our Musical!

yourlovemusical.jpg

New York, NY – Your Love, Our Musical! – a long form improvised musical in which comedic musical masterminds ( Rebecca Vigil and Evan Kaufman ) interview a couple from the audience and create a fully improvised musical about that couple’s love story – is moving to Manhattan at Caveat NYC on Saturday, May 19th at 7PM doors at 630PM.

YLOM, as it’s affectionately known, is a long-running NYC comedy institution starring two of New York City's finest musical improvisers. Rebecca and Evan use their unique comedic chemistry, vocal skill, and improvisational abilities to transform audiences’ simple meet-cutes into bombastic choruses, their Tinder swipes into epic dance numbers, and their relationship snafus into chopped and screwed hip-hop epics.

Bring your significant other for a night of comedy and music unlike any you’ve ever seen (or will see again.) It’s better than Hamilton ! Hamilton isn’t about you meeting your boyfriend on Bumble. 

Mobile tickets available here
