Asia’s motherhood has always been an ongoing struggle rather than an obvious instinct. Becoming a mother at a very early age has shaped Asia’s relationship with her teenage daughter Vika. Despite living together, Asia and Vika barely interact with one another. Asia concentrates on her job as a nurse while Vika hangs out at the skatepark with her friends. Their routine is shaken when Vika’s health deteriorates rapidly. Asia must step in and become the mother Vika so desperately needs. Vika’s illness turns out to be an opportunity to reveal the great love within this small family unit.

More than 100 companies are expected to participate with openings for part-time, full-time, entry-level and professional positions. “RCC is thrilled to offer students, alumni, employers, and the community the opportunity to engage in our first Virtual Job Fair Week.  So many of our job seeking attendees have been adversely affected financially by the pandemic. Providing them with a virtual platform to network and be recruited by some of the top businesses in our community is invaluable. We know that both applicants and employers will benefit tremendously form participating in our week-long event,” says Joseph Falco, Executive Director of Student Success at RCC. "From a student’s perspective, it is important to attend the job fair so that you can network and see different job opportunities in your field of study. You can practice your interviewing skills and learn how to make a lasting impression on employers,” says Eesha Uddin, a Liberal Arts: Math & Science major on the Honors Track who is expected to graduate in May 2022.  Participating employers must register at: https://www.collegecentral.com/sunyrockland/ by March 29, 2021. The cost is $45 per employer. Students can register by logging on to their RCC JobNet account (sunyrockland.edu/jobnet) before Friday, April 9, 2021. There they can view a list of employers. There is no fee for students to participate. Although it is a virtual event, students should dress as though they are meeting potential employers in person. Community members are invited to attend the virtual fair free of charge. They can register at: https://www.collegecentral.com/sunyrockland/ by Friday, April 9, 2021. Once on the site, select Community Residents then create an account and follow the prompts. Job seekers will be able to see the participating employers two weeks prior to the event.

The Historical Society of Rockland County Is Reopening to the Public with New Exhibitions When: August 19, 2020, through 2021 Where: HSRC History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City Admission: $5/person; children under 7 are free (due to COVID-19 conditions, admission is limited, and prepaid tickets are required). Purchase tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4681990 Gallery 1: INSIDE OUT: Women, Fashion & The Fight for the Vote The struggle for suffrage affected American women’s lives both before and after they won the vote. In this special Centennial Exhibition, we mine the Historical Society of Rockland County’s collections to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage. Fashion served women as social currency for centuries and has been used to oppress as much as to express. By 1920, however, women were using fashion to proclaim their freedom and political independence. What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines. Gallery 2: ROCKLAND VOICES featuring Mariel Farlow — Being of Light Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season!  Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores the Lenape, the Dutch, Treason of the Revolution, Slavery, and Nyack Turnpike.  New for 2020-2021 MARIEL FARLOW — BEING OF LIGHT This year marks the 40th anniversary of the installation of one of the most controversial public sculptures in Rockland.In the hot summer of 1980, Mariel Farlow set out to install a monumental sculpture on the grounds of the Rockland County Courthouse in New City. The effort was the culmination of months of preparation, proposals, designs, fabrication, creativity, hard work, and a bit of serendipity. Over the past four decades, however, her 20-foot, 3,000-pound sculpture, Being of Light (originally titled Man of Light), has generated more controversy than any other piece of public art in Rockland County’s history -- to the detriment of its creator’s original intent.  This special exhibit explores the serendipity, controversy, and philosophy behind Being of Light, which still stands in front of the Rockland County Courthouse, exactly where it was placed 40 years ago. It also renews the call for Farlow's artist’s statement and poem to be mounted on the base of the sculpture, as she had planned in 1980, so viewers can reflect on its meaning and, once and for all, we can let the controversy end. The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the fall of 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.

Saturday, April 17 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The Historical Society of Rockland County

2020 is the centennial year for the passage of the 19th Amendment winning the right to vote for women. The Mahwah Museum’s newest exhibit, “Revealed:  Women’s Fight for the Right to Vote,” is a revealing look at the final decade’s toughest battles undertaken by women, several  from New Jersey and New York, to win this right. Suffragists, including New Jersey’s Alice Paul who pushed the boundaries of political and cultural courage, persisted despite arrests, prison terms, hunger strikes and forced-feedings in order to reach their goal. They challenged presidents and statesmen in order to achieve the passage of the 19th Amendment. Even the final fight for the states’ ratification of the amendment, taking place in Tennessee, was battling back-handed deals of bribery, extortion, free flowing booze, and worst of all, women opposed to suffrage – the southern Anti’s.  See this new exhibit for the real story of how the vote was won. This exhibition runs through June 2021. The Mahwah Museum is open Saturdays, 1-4 pm.  Admission is free for Museum members and children, and $5 for non-members.  New Jersey state guidelines will be followed; masks and temperature checks required for entry; social distancing will be followed.

Performers include Jon Pousette-Dart, Johnny Irion and a performance by Emotions Physical Theatre. And for children: learn a magic trick & clown tips with Mr. Amazing, Carlo Pellegrini.Performers include: Jon Pousette-Dart released a solo record, "Talk", in 2015 to critical acclaim! Jon Pousette-Dart is a gilded tenor and a smooth hand on guitar. "Pousette-Dart's compositions brim with optimism, introspection and subtle grace." -- Performing Songwriter.The Pousette-Dart Band reflected the sounds of the ‘70s, securing their place in the musical firmament by purveying that harmonious soft rock sound. Signed to Capitol Records, they put out four critically hailed albums for the label (Pousette-Dart Band, Amnesia, Pousette-Dart Band 3, and Never Enough) and a recent compilation (The Best of Pousette-Dart Band.)Johnny Irion is best known for his folk explorations with his wife Sarah Lee Guthrie, including their recent Wassaic Way produced by Jeff Tweedy, and his latest rock venture with US ELEVATOR, which Will Hermes of Rolling Stone Magazine praised for its “songs that are hand crafted as lovingly as the jeans on the back of After the Goldrush.” Irion has earned a reputation as one of the most exciting artists across the folk-rock spectrum, from his uncannily Young-Nilsson-esque voice to his melodic and lyrical mettle.Irion wrapped up his latest solo record, Driving Friend, in the spring of 2018. The album was produced by Tim Bluhm, backed by Blackwing, the artisan pencil makers with a diverse musical heritage, and featured members of Dawes, Wilco, Nicki Bluhm and The Gamblers. The record ranged across a wide expanse of roots genres, from blues and gospel to folk and country. Everything about it feels authentically crafted, a carving out of raw, lived American experience.Emotions Physical Theatre will perform Intimacy Lost: The Living Gallery. Dancers become moving exhibits that come to life through hip hop, ballet and contemporary movement. Shawn Rawls, the Artistic Director of Emotions Physical Theatre, sees his dance troupe as serving a bridge between art and entertainment. Using an organic blend of contemporary dance with hip hop, ballet, gymnastics and breakdance, Emotions Physical Theatre is committed to making dance theater that is fun, accessible, and innovative. The troupe breaks down walls between stage performance and spectators to create an experience for audience members that goes beyond a typical dance show by including audience participation and by creating in unique spaces. The troupe believes that dance theater should be transparent and easy to understand while inspiring thought and communicating ideas in a clear and aesthetically pleasing way.Rawls creates dance art with the goal of fostering personal growth. He incorporates research from psychology and sociology into their productions so an audience member might walk away from the experience with a thought-provoking tidbit of practical information.Kids will delight in the antics of Carlo Pellegrini, (aka, Mr. Amazing) by learning a magic trick and clown tips. Pellegrini is the co-founder and Artistic Director of NY’s oldest all-youth circus Amazing Grace Circus. He performed for many years as White Clown, Acrobat and Ringmaster with Big Apple Circus, The Royal Lichtenstein Circus, Piccolo Circus NYC, was a professional dancer with internationally acclaimed Nikolais Dance Theatre, and has appeared in movies, TV and many radio commercials over the years. He brings over 38 years of professional circus, dance and theater experience.The virtual fundraiser is free, April 17th at 7 pm. You may register by calling 845-358-0877 to get the login information.

JCC of Rockland

A young punk who thinks she knows it all. An old man who knows he doesn’t. They strike up a conversation, it becomes life-changing. A deepening knowledge occurs as they walk the streets of LA. He is a Holocaust survivor she a massage-parlorworker on the run and a Holocaust denier, though he doesn’t hold any of that against her. Newcomer 14-year old Margot Josefsohn plays angry but stunningly naïve Casey, living from hand to mouth on the streets of LA fending off the frightening advances of men, having nowhere to go. She trusts no one. Samuel, played by the sublime (multiple Emmy Award-winning actor Ed Asner) trusts only a few. She tells him she hates Jews, he asks her if she needs a place to stay. The two form an unexpected friendship, which gradually blossoms into a new family unit – him providing her the support and guidance that was lacking in her life, and her offering him the glimpse of the fatherhood that was torn from him many years prior.

The Historical Society of Rockland County

The Historical Society of Rockland County Is Reopening to the Public with New Exhibitions When: August 19, 2020, through 2021 Where: HSRC History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City Admission: $5/person; children under 7 are free (due to COVID-19 conditions, admission is limited, and prepaid tickets are required). Purchase tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4681990 Gallery 1: INSIDE OUT: Women, Fashion & The Fight for the Vote The struggle for suffrage affected American women’s lives both before and after they won the vote. In this special Centennial Exhibition, we mine the Historical Society of Rockland County’s collections to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage. Fashion served women as social currency for centuries and has been used to oppress as much as to express. By 1920, however, women were using fashion to proclaim their freedom and political independence. What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines. Gallery 2: ROCKLAND VOICES featuring Mariel Farlow — Being of Light Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season!  Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores the Lenape, the Dutch, Treason of the Revolution, Slavery, and Nyack Turnpike.  New for 2020-2021 MARIEL FARLOW — BEING OF LIGHT This year marks the 40th anniversary of the installation of one of the most controversial public sculptures in Rockland.In the hot summer of 1980, Mariel Farlow set out to install a monumental sculpture on the grounds of the Rockland County Courthouse in New City. The effort was the culmination of months of preparation, proposals, designs, fabrication, creativity, hard work, and a bit of serendipity. Over the past four decades, however, her 20-foot, 3,000-pound sculpture, Being of Light (originally titled Man of Light), has generated more controversy than any other piece of public art in Rockland County’s history -- to the detriment of its creator’s original intent.  This special exhibit explores the serendipity, controversy, and philosophy behind Being of Light, which still stands in front of the Rockland County Courthouse, exactly where it was placed 40 years ago. It also renews the call for Farlow's artist’s statement and poem to be mounted on the base of the sculpture, as she had planned in 1980, so viewers can reflect on its meaning and, once and for all, we can let the controversy end. The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the fall of 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.

It might just be the only disease to have ever actually saved lives. And it didn’t really exist. Syndrome K is a feature documentary in production that tells the story of three courageous Roman Catholic doctors who saved Jews by convincing the Nazis that these Jews were infected with a highly deadly and contagious disease that the doctors called Syndrome K. After Mussolini was removed, and Italy signed an Armistice with the Allies, the Nazis became infuriated, and they occupied Rome. The occupying Nazis deported over 1,000 Jews to Auschwitz from the Jewish Ghetto in Rome in October 1943 and most never returned. Many Jews sought refuge in Fatebenefratelli hospital where the three doctors invented the disease to protect them. Dr. Ossicini was interviewed for this film as were survivors. The footage amassed by the filmmaker and from archives is chilling and the heroism is pronounced. It is a story that needs to be told.

In this special Centennial Exhibition, we mine the Historical Society of Rockland County’s collections to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage. Fashion served women as social currency for centuries and has been used to oppress as much as to express. By 1920, however, women were using fashion to proclaim their freedom and political independence. What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines. Gallery 2: ROCKLAND VOICES featuring Mariel Farlow — Being of Light Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season!  Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores the Lenape, the Dutch, Treason of the Revolution, Slavery, and Nyack Turnpike.  New for 2020-2021 MARIEL FARLOW — BEING OF LIGHT This year marks the 40th anniversary of the installation of one of the most controversial public sculptures in Rockland.In the hot summer of 1980, Mariel Farlow set out to install a monumental sculpture on the grounds of the Rockland County Courthouse in New City. The effort was the culmination of months of preparation, proposals, designs, fabrication, creativity, hard work, and a bit of serendipity. Over the past four decades, however, her 20-foot, 3,000-pound sculpture, Being of Light (originally titled Man of Light), has generated more controversy than any other piece of public art in Rockland County’s history -- to the detriment of its creator’s original intent.  This special exhibit explores the serendipity, controversy, and philosophy behind Being of Light, which still stands in front of the Rockland County Courthouse, exactly where it was placed 40 years ago. It also renews the call for Farlow's artist’s statement and poem to be mounted on the base of the sculpture, as she had planned in 1980, so viewers can reflect on its meaning and, once and for all, we can let the controversy end. The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the fall of 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.

The Historical Society of Rockland County

2020 is the centennial year for the passage of the 19th Amendment winning the right to vote for women. The Mahwah Museum’s newest exhibit, “Revealed:  Women’s Fight for the Right to Vote,” is a revealing look at the final decade’s toughest battles undertaken by women, several  from New Jersey and New York, to win this right. Suffragists, including New Jersey’s Alice Paul who pushed the boundaries of political and cultural courage, persisted despite arrests, prison terms, hunger strikes and forced-feedings in order to reach their goal. They challenged presidents and statesmen in order to achieve the passage of the 19th Amendment. Even the final fight for the states’ ratification of the amendment, taking place in Tennessee, was battling back-handed deals of bribery, extortion, free flowing booze, and worst of all, women opposed to suffrage – the southern Anti’s.  See this new exhibit for the real story of how the vote was won. This exhibition runs through June 2021. The Mahwah Museum is open Saturdays, 1-4 pm.  Admission is free for Museum members and children, and $5 for non-members.  New Jersey state guidelines will be followed; masks and temperature checks required for entry; social distancing will be followed.

Made in Jersey: Kyle Marshall
Apr 29
Berrie Center for Performing and Visual Arts
Virtual

Thursday, April 29 from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Berrie Center for Performing and Visual Arts

Made in Jersey will feature a series of New Jersey based performing artists sharing new works-in-progress. After each broadcast, audiences will be able to join the artist in a live chat where they can askquestions. Kyle Marshall is a choreographer, performer and teaching artist. He recently received the 2020 Dance Magazine Harkness Promise Award and a NY “Bessie” Award nomination for the production “Colored”. His dance company, Kyle Marshall Choreography (KMC) sees the dancing body as a container of history, an igniter of social reform and a site of celebration. Since inception in 2014, KMC has performed at venues including: BAM Next Wave Festival, Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out, Joe’s Pub at the Public, Actors Fund Arts Center, NJPAC, NYC Summerstage, and Roulette. He has also received commissions from “Dance on the Lawn” Montclair’s Dance Festival and Harlem Stage. Marshall has been in residence at the 92nd st Y, CPR, Jamaica Performing Arts Center and currently is a Resident Performance Artist at MANA Contemporary. As a teacher, Marshall conducts dance masterclasses and creative workshops at schools including American Dance Festival, Montclair State University, Ailey/Fordham, County Prep High School and Bloomfield College. Kyle is a member of the Trisha Brown Dance Company. He also danced with doug elkins choreography etc., and Tiffany Mills Company. Kyle graduated from Rutgers University with a BFA in Dance and resides in Jersey City.   Description of Performance: In this solo dance work-in-progress, choreographer and dancer Kyle Marshall states “as a member of the diaspora, I have often felt distant from my maternal homeland, Jamaica. I and I is an exploration of my Jamaican body. This process has directed me towards my family’s migration story, Caribbean dance, and historical research, and uncovering the global cultural impact of this mighty Caribbean island.”  Born into a family of runners, motion is at the core of Marshall’s being. At times, this process is biographic and heartfelt as he works to undo shame he has felt about his sexuality, dance to music of his childhood, or ask his mother for traditional recipes to try. At other times, Marshall is embodying ideas rooted in collective memory and Jamaican pop culture which step beyond his personal narrative. Marshall shares, “as someone who grew up in a Jamaican-American household, and visited the island throughout my childhood, the distance and comfort I feel about cultural traditions makes me question what an authentic Jamaican experience is. I understand culture to be an embodied experience taught to us by our elders, shaped by our environment, and reinforced by our consumption of media. My bloodline is one of generational migration in search of opportunity and land of our own.”  As a member of the diaspora, Marshall is a mix of cultural influences. Shaped by the country in which he resides, linked to his mother’s island and the wild dream of ancestors forced to arrive on the shores of Jamaica from Africa. I and I attempts to bridge these worlds, connecting his body to its origins and beyond.  The title I and I is a Rastafarian term for oneness with God. It is a concept that God is within each of us and therefore we are all connected to each other through this bond. In Jamaican Patois, “I and I” would replace “you and I” or “we”. Like much of the language, “I and I’’ derives from the Twi language of Ghana, translating to “Me ne me.” Bob Marley, a Rastafarian himself, expressed this in another way, “one love, one heart”. That in loving myself as I am, I uplift the spirit within me and am better able to celebrate the spirit within you.

HSRC: Suffrage Centennial Exhibitions
May 5
The Historical Society of Rockland County
Historical Society of Rockland County, 20 Zukor Rd, New City, NY 10956, USA

Wednesday, May 5 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The Historical Society of Rockland County

The Historical Society of Rockland County Is Reopening to the Public with New Exhibitions When: August 19, 2020, through 2021 Where: HSRC History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City Admission: $5/person; children under 7 are free (due to COVID-19 conditions, admission is limited, and prepaid tickets are required). Purchase tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4681990 Gallery 1: INSIDE OUT: Women, Fashion & The Fight for the Vote The struggle for suffrage affected American women’s lives both before and after they won the vote. In this special Centennial Exhibition, we mine the Historical Society of Rockland County’s collections to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage. Fashion served women as social currency for centuries and has been used to oppress as much as to express. By 1920, however, women were using fashion to proclaim their freedom and political independence. What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines. Gallery 2: ROCKLAND VOICES featuring Mariel Farlow — Being of Light Our semi-permanent exhibition illustrating Rockland County's rich history has reopened for a new season!  Through highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection, visitors will learn about several elements that make up Rockland’s history. The core exhibition explores the Lenape, the Dutch, Treason of the Revolution, Slavery, and Nyack Turnpike.  New for 2020-2021 MARIEL FARLOW — BEING OF LIGHT This year marks the 40th anniversary of the installation of one of the most controversial public sculptures in Rockland.In the hot summer of 1980, Mariel Farlow set out to install a monumental sculpture on the grounds of the Rockland County Courthouse in New City. The effort was the culmination of months of preparation, proposals, designs, fabrication, creativity, hard work, and a bit of serendipity. Over the past four decades, however, her 20-foot, 3,000-pound sculpture, Being of Light (originally titled Man of Light), has generated more controversy than any other piece of public art in Rockland County’s history -- to the detriment of its creator’s original intent.  This special exhibit explores the serendipity, controversy, and philosophy behind Being of Light, which still stands in front of the Rockland County Courthouse, exactly where it was placed 40 years ago. It also renews the call for Farlow's artist’s statement and poem to be mounted on the base of the sculpture, as she had planned in 1980, so viewers can reflect on its meaning and, once and for all, we can let the controversy end. The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the fall of 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.

Mahwah Museum: "Revealed: Women's Fight for the Right to Vote" Exhibition
May 8
The Historical Society of Rockland County
Mahwah Museum, 201 Franklin Turnpike, Mahwah, NJ 07430, USA

Saturday, May 8 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The Historical Society of Rockland County

2020 is the centennial year for the passage of the 19th Amendment winning the right to vote for women. The Mahwah Museum’s newest exhibit, “Revealed:  Women’s Fight for the Right to Vote,” is a revealing look at the final decade’s toughest battles undertaken by women, several  from New Jersey and New York, to win this right. Suffragists, including New Jersey’s Alice Paul who pushed the boundaries of political and cultural courage, persisted despite arrests, prison terms, hunger strikes and forced-feedings in order to reach their goal. They challenged presidents and statesmen in order to achieve the passage of the 19th Amendment. Even the final fight for the states’ ratification of the amendment, taking place in Tennessee, was battling back-handed deals of bribery, extortion, free flowing booze, and worst of all, women opposed to suffrage – the southern Anti’s.  See this new exhibit for the real story of how the vote was won. This exhibition runs through June 2021. The Mahwah Museum is open Saturdays, 1-4 pm.  Admission is free for Museum members and children, and $5 for non-members.  New Jersey state guidelines will be followed; masks and temperature checks required for entry; social distancing will be followed.
