She choreographs and dances all around NY like Urban Circus NYC, House of Yes, Judson Memorial Church, Coney Island USA to more locally at ETG cafe. In 2015, she organized Bedroom Dances at Hub 17, Staten Island, showcasing seven dancers from the community. She has danced in works of Z Griss, Seanna Sharp, Florence Poulain, Charlotte Hendrickson. Anjoli facilitates dance and movement workshops for emotional and group healing work. She has been offering this in the Staten Island community since 2016.

The WaterLynx Trio formed this year after Natalia Steinbach released her solo EP and wanted all of the harmonies and parts to be recreated. Now the group consists of an innovative collaboration of composers/improvisers/musicians who value the beauty and intensity of three part vocal harmony, and the versatility of violin(Natalia), viola(Allyson Clare), and piano(Chloe Golding) instrumentation. The trio composes music separately and together with lyrical content focused on feminine power, environmental conscience, as well as mental health advocacy. Their music is intriguingly beautiful as well as unapologetically fierce.

Featuring Comedy and Music Stylings of Ian Goldstein, classical opera by soprano Rachel Hutchins, and original music by Wise & Young

Ian Goldstein is a writer and performer based in Brooklyn. When he's not producing and performing in comedy shows he can be found busking with his guitar in subway stations or eating doughnuts while thinking about the aging process. See him perform and you might have fun and doughnuts with him.

Wise & Young is the Boston-based duo of percussionist Peter Wise and violinist Jeffrey Young, who create electronically effected instrumental music. The duo mines classical, rock, jazz and electronic influences and pulls nuance and wonder as much from traditional instruments like violin and drums as from found materials, pots and pans, and eviscerated ’80s drum machines. They develop their music collaboratively through a process of improvisation, recording, and revision.

Peter and Jeffrey met in New York City’s creative music scene during their years living in the city, then reconnected after each moved independently to the Allston/Brighton section of Boston. Their initial work together was supported by an Opportunity Fund grant from the Boston Cultural Council, which provided funding and a venue, the Harvard Ed Portal, for their duo premiere in March 2019.

Garage Sale!

It’s that time of year again! We’ve collected a lot of goodies over the last few years and really don’t need them to be sitting here collecting dust. Enlargers, trays, misc darkroom junk we don’t need & maybe you want to throw us a few bucks for so we’re not the ones responsible for putting it in the landfill.

Riley Stenehjem Opening Reception

Riley Stenehjem Opening Reception

Join us for the opening of our next art installation with BCD Volunteer Riley Stenehjem!

Riley is a student and photographer who grew up between northwestern Pennsylvania and Southern California. They are currently studying the relationship between race, photography, and colonialism at NYU. Creating images that work to distort and defamiliarize the human body and our conceptions of ourselves.

"At 14, I moved away from my hometown of 3,000 people in rural Pennsylvania. With each year that has passed, I've felt both increasingly foreign and attached to the place that I call my home. Going back now feels as if I'm stepping out of space and time, into another world where I'm enveloped by the unchanged environment of my past. This work attempts to articulate those mixed emotions with a close-up glimpse of my loved ones and the spaces they inhabit. I'm also interested in the implications of bringing the deeply personal and intimate space of the family into public view."

Free and open to the public, the opening reception is on Thursday, June 6th from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. We hope to see you there for friends, art, and drinks!

Body Horror - An Exhibition of Prints by Juliet Grodzins

Body Horror - An Exhibition of Prints by Juliet Grodzins

Body Horror is an exploration of the coexistence of the body and brain when burdened with dysmorphia, depression, and anxiety. This work aims to analyze and expose the fear the artist feels on a day to day basis. There is an indescribable subtle terror in living in a body that feels completely alien to it’s being. The artist uses her own body as a subject and displays it in distorted positions and situations in an attempt to portray the discomfort felt living in this body. The work attempts to separate the physical from the emotional, primarily to show the artist herself, as well as the viewer, that this is her body. 

Each print is made in the black and white darkroom by Juliet Grodzins on 20”x24”Adox MCC 110 Silver Gelatin paper with Moersch Catechol & Neutral tone two bath development.

Please join us for a reception with the artist on Friday October 19th from 6:30-9:30pm. Snacks and drinks will be available.
