Here are a few fun things to do this week:
- Listen to one of today’s most interesting soloists on Japan’s national instrument, the Koto. Marking the debut of her new album Metamorphosis, Yumi Kurosawa brings her trio to Joe’s Pub on Thursday, March 30 at 7:00pm for a celebratory performance with special guests.
- Join writers Rebecca Faulkner, Hanna Griff-Sleven, and Amy Stein-Milford at the Museum at Eldridge Street for a reception, reading, and discussion about each of their recent works, “Poetry, Memoir, and the Art of Remembering” on Thursday, March 30 at 6:30pm.
- Check out Morgan Bassichis’ latest show, A Crowded Field, at Abrons Arts Center, which opens on Friday, March 31 at 8:00pm. The show completes a trilogy of performance projects that use humor and music to explore Jewish radicalism. For this one, Bassichis performs a “crash course in the uses and abuses of the Jewish holidays.”
- Visit ICP “Late Night” ($5) for a special screening of the film Forest for the Trees, followed by a Director’s Q&A with ICP alum Rita Leistner, on Thursday, April 6 at 6:30pm. The documentary is a five-year multi-media project following a “diverse community of tree planters who find common cause, self-knowledge, and meaning in their arduous, solitary work toiling to restore Canada’s forests.”
