Invitational Poetry and Prose Readings @ Court Tree Gallery Tickets
May 24 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Invitational Poetry and Prose Readings @ Court Tree Gallery

Thursday, May 24 – Invitational Poetry and Prose Readings 7 – 9 PM

Lynne and Mark invite local writers of poetry and prose Denver Butson, Jason Dubow, Paolo Javier, Heather Johnson, and Maria Robinson Somerville to look at the idea of the XY Chromosome – the notion of boy-girl, gender, sex, DNA, biology, society, and identity.

Guest writers: Denver Butson is a Brooklyn-based poet, collaborator with artists in various disciplines, father, husband, cook, gardener, guitarist, and creative director of an arts and cultural center in southern Italy. Many of his poems involve real or imagined tensions between real or imagined people in real or imagined relationships. Jason Dubow teaches at St. Francis College and is working on a book that grew out of his blog, “LearnMeProject: Reflections on One Family’s Home School Experiment and Beyond”. Jason and his son Isaac, a jazz trumpet player, will read/perform their collaborative essay “A Father and Son in a Sort of Conversation.” Paolo Javier’s collaboration with Listening Center appeared as a book-cassette, Ur’lyeh/Aklopolis in early 2017. A featured artist in MoMA PS1’s 2015 Greater NY Show as well the Queens International ‘18, Paulo is the author of four full-length collections of poetry, including Court of the Dragon which Publisher’s Weekly calls “a linguistic time machine”. Heather Lynn Johnson is the author of The Survival Guide for Queer Black Youth and the 2017 literary fellow for the Queer|Art|Mentorship program. Heather’s work is characterized by its lyricism and cultural critique. Through the use of imagery and the written word, Johnson explores being other-ed in a consumerist society by mining the history of gender, sexuality, and the racialized body. Maria Robins-Somerville received a Hopwood Prize for Poetry at the University Michigan. This fall, she’ll be starting at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. She will read an essay about her twin brother.

Film Screening: The Worker’s Cup @ Museum of Moving Image Tickets
Jun 7 @ 7:30 pm – Jul 17 @ 4:30 pm

The opening-night film at last year’s SUNDANCE Film Festival and premiering for the FIRST time in theaters in nationwide, THE WORKERS CUP offers a never-seen-before level of access inside the labor camps of Qatar, where the 2022 FIFA World Cup is being built on the backs of 1.6 million migrant workers.

The film follows a team of laborers living a real-life version of fantasy football — a dark fantasy. By day they sweat in perilous conditions to build the venues for World Cup; by night they compete in a “workers welfare” soccer tournament, playing in the same stadiums that will one day host the world’s greatest players.

We join one team of men from Nepal, India, Ghana, and Kenya whose only common ground is their love for soccer and their desires to earn better lives. Each match offers them a momentary escape from the homesickness, danger, and isolation they endure as the lowest class in the world’s richest country.

Here’s what critics are saying about THE WORKERS CUP:
“a RIVETING underdog tale.” – Screen Daily
“REQUIRED VIEWING.” – The Guardian
“Remarkable INSIDE ACCESS.” – Variety
“An INTIMATE PORTRAIT.” – The Washington Post

You can help! Together, let’s put an end to labor abuse around the world.
