Arts Happening: Ritual Fire and Mercy Killers
4pm: Ritual Fire CD Release Concert #2
Ritual Fire is a music performance project by the pianist Alon Nechushtan. Based on virtuoso mastery of musical instrumentation and with a clear idea of what music pieces created in free improvisation should express, a number of precious pieces are created – and these grow together into an overall work of art.
6pm: Mercy Killers, The One-Man Play by Michael Milligan
Mercy Killers is a one-man play by Michael Milligan. Joe loves apple pie, Rush Limbaugh, the 4th of July and his wife, Jane. He is blue-collar, corn-fed, made in the USA and proud, but when his uninsured wife is diagnosed with cancer, his patriotic feelings and passion for the ethos of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are turned upside down.
The Arts Happening Series is an annual program hosted at the former Engine Co. 212 Firehouse and future home of the Northside Town Hall Community and Cultural Center. Since 2009, the Arts Happening Series has highlighted the works of local Brooklyn artists activating the shuttered space and showcasing the Center’s potential.
