FIRST COUSIN ONCE REMOVED: ALAN BERLINER

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center (Broadway between 62nd and 63rd St.)

This installment of the Atrium’s popular new AtriumFlix series, JustFilms, features filmmaker Alan Berliner’s powerful documentary film, First Cousin Once Removed. Preceding the screening, Richard Peña, co-host of Thirteen’s weekly Reel 13, will interview Mr. Berliner. The film presents an unsettling portrait of the poet Edwin Honig’s descent into Alzheimer’s disease; Honig was Berliner’s cousin and mentor. The film premiered at the 2012 New York Film Festival and went on to win Grand Prize for Feature Length Documentary at the International Film Festival Amsterdam. Dubbed “America’s foremost cinematic essayist” (at San Francisco International Film Festival), Berliner’s films have become part of the core curriculum for documentary filmmaking at universities around the world. First Cousin Once Removed will air on HBO in the fall of 2013.

Lora-Faye performs with a constantly evolving band of New York folkies, jazz musicians, opera singers, and everything in between.

RITE OF THE BUTCHER

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center (Broadway between 62nd & 63rd St.)

Created and performed by Ben Spatz, founder and Artistic Director of Urban Research Theater, Rite of the Butcher is a fable about the power of fantasy as told by the Butcher—refugee, criminal, and shaman—through poetry, martial dance, and folk song. This interdisciplinary monologue for solo performer is a fictional memoir combining abstract imagery with physical and vocal performance to explore contemporary themes of war, violence, and mourning. This performance features multi-media visuals by The DLP.

Produced by Urban Research Theater and co-presented in collaboration with LEIMAY-CAVE as part of the SOAK Festival.

MATUTO

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center (Broadway between 62nd & 63rd St.)

“The joyous, ebullient music of Matuto merges the forró music of Brazil with the sounds of all-American bluegrass. Violin, accordion, and a range of Brazilian percussion give this band a seductively cross-cultural appeal.”(Chicago Tribune) Virtuoso guitarist and singer Clay Ross traveled from South Carolina to New York to Brazil, developing an entirely unique sound that blends Native American folk songs with South American rhythms. Together with New York’s master forró ambassador Rob Curto, he formed the six-member band Matuto (a Brazilian slang reference to a man from the backcountry) that includes jazz percussionist Richie Barshay, bassist Michael Loren Lavalle, pandiero player Ze Maricio, and violinist Maz Swift. The band is the recipient of a prestigious Fulbright grant and its second CD, The Devil and the Diamond, was just released on the Motéma Music label. The 7:30 pm set is “The Devil and the Diamond”; the 9:30 pm set is “The Africa Suite.” The works are presented in collaboration with the US State Department Artists Abroad program.

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

PAN ASIAN CHAMBER JAZZ ENSEMBLE

Music of Ryuichi Sakamoto

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center (Broadway between 62nd & 63rd St.)

Called the “queen of chamber jazz” by All About Jazz, violinist, composer, and erhu player Meg Okura will bring her Pan Asian Chamber Jazz Ensemble (PACJE) to Lincoln Center for an evening that re-imagines the classics of the pioneering Japanese musician, activist, and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, Academy and Grammy Award-winner for the film score to Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor. Okura has performed a repertoire ranging from Paganini to Coltrane at such venues as the Kennedy Center and the Hollywood Bowl and has also collaborated with jazz artists Dianne Reeves and Lee Konitz. The “vibrant and sophisticated” (The New York Times) PACJE has appeared at NYC’s Knitting Factory, the KL International Jazz Festival in Malaysia, and in sold-out concerts across Japan. Its self-named debut album was an Independent Music Awards finalist and its most recent release, Naima, is a tribute to jazz icon John Coltrane.
