Be Steadwell

Hailing from Washington D.C., Be Steadwell is a singer-songwriter whose unique blend of soul, a capella, and folk comes together to create “Queer Pop.” In her live performances, she utilizes looping, vocal layering, and beatboxing to compose songs on stage, featuring earnest lyricism and affirming LGBTQ content. Shooting and editing her own music videos, Be combines her love of music with narrative film. Her film Vow of Silence received awards at festivals around the world, including BlackStar, QWOCMAP, and Fringe Fest U.K., and was featured on Issa Rae’s Short Film Sundays series. Be has shared the stage with fellow artist-activists such as Big Freedia, Nona Hendryx, Nikky Finney, and Gina Yashere. In 2017, she sang at the Women's March in D.C. with Maxwell and Janelle Monáe in Toshi Reagon's BIGLovely band. Her newest album, Queer Love Songs, was released in May.

VICE Media Watch & Learn: Separated by Birth and Zero Tolerance

This special screening and talk-back with the great minds behind VICE and field experts centers on America's current immigration policies and the debates surrounding them.

VICE on HBO Special: Separated By Birth

In a VICE on HBO special episode dedicated solely to the ongoing immigration debate, correspondent Krishna Andavolu gains rare access to an ICE unit during a targeted enforcement raid, travels to the New Mexico/Mexico border to interview children whose parents aren't U.S citizens, and meets the woman who acts as guardian for over 1,200 U.S. children as parents begin to preemptively sign away their rights out of fear of deportation.

VICE News Tonight on HBO: Zero Tolerance

As the U.S. government hit a deadline to reunite more than 2,500 children separated from their parents under the Trump Administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, VICE News attains rare insight into what the torturous experience was like—from separation to reunification for one family. In a powerful half-hour episode, Zero Tolerance uncovers the chaos and confusion created by a harsh policy the government was clearly not prepared to manage. From Texas to Alabama to Guatemala, VICE News Tonight on HBO follows one family trying to find a seven-year-old boy separated from his father.

Relevant Tones Live: Vanishing City

In Jeremiah Moss’s book Vanishing New York the author argues that, through gentrification and rising income inequality, the city is slowly losing its soul. Join Seth Boustead, composer and host of Relevant Tones, the country's only syndicated radio show featuring contemporary classical music, for a live broadcast with Moss, Open House New York Executive Director Gregory Wessner, and NewMusicBox co-editor Frank J. Oteri about these issues, followed by a performance by Carnegie Hall's Ensemble Connect in music of New York composers who flourished in a bygone, some say golden, era.  Music by cellist, composer, and pop music phenom Arthur Russell will be performed alongside a world premiere of a Julius Eastman’s choral piece, The Moon's Silent Modulation, and a forgotten gem by Tui St. George Tucker.

Presented in collaboration with Access Contemporary Music

Atrium 360°

Aakash Mittal’s Awaz Trio

Led by the "fiery alto saxophonist and prolific composer” Aakash Mittal (Minneapolis Star Tribune), the Awaz Trio sculpts sonic landscapes, pointillistic textures, and angular melodies from Indian and American improvised music. Their debut project, Nocturne, is a series of pieces that deconstructs five Hindustani evening and night ragas. The colorful dissonances, meditative silences, and punctuated rhythms that emerge paint a unique picture of the night. At times the music evokes the meditation of a world at rest, night terrors conjured by the imagination, and the slow cadence of blue light melting into darkness. Nocturne is part of the trio's mission to create new work that explores the concept of Awaz, a Hindi-Urdu word that changes meaning between sound, noise, and voice depending on the context.

Presented in collaboration with The India Center Foundation and Asian American Arts Alliance

David Rubenstein Atrium, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage (Broadway bet. 62nd & 63rd St.)

FREE Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, including program updates, visit LincolnCenter.org/Atrium.
