Our children’s workshops helped kids to create soap box cars, boats, skateboards, forts, greenhouses, robots and more–and our arts education program made appearances at the World Maker Faire, Emoticon, Art Slope and the Brooklyn Public Library!

Each year our annual fundraiser has a greater impact on our programming than the last. This year’s fundraiser will include food, drinks, a silent auction of artwork and special guests. our goal is to raise $20,000 to support our 2017 programming.

Darius @ Good Room |  |  |

Get tickets: http://ticketf.ly/2dNDEzs

Darius’ darker, synthier take on house, disco and funk have made us move for years now, and it looks like the rest of the world is finally catching up. Renowned for his role in Cherokee, the French artist has spearheaded the revival of French nu-disco and house, landing him on the forefront of many a dance floor.

The French auteur is hitting our favorite let-your-hair-down spot in Greenpoint, Good Room, for a weekend night underneath its mystical disco ball. We always end up making fun choices on this dance floor, and a Darius-curated evening will abound with lush sounds and even lusher dancing.

Steve Reich Celebration: Gideon Alorwoyie & Mantra Percussion @ National Sawdust
Dec 10 @ 7:00 pm
Steve Reich Celebration: Gideon Alorwoyie & Mantra Percussion @ National Sawdust |  |  |

Presented by World Music Institute & National Sawdust

In 1970, Steve Reich embarked on a trip to study music in Ghana with Gideon Alorwoyie (photo above), the resident master drummer of the Ghana Dance Ensemble. From this experience in Africa, Reich drew inspiration for his piece Drumming, which he composed shortly after his return. Drumming marked the beginning of a new stage in his career, for around this time he formed his ensemble, Steve Reich and Musicians, and increasingly concentrated on composition and performance with them. In celebration of Steve Reich’s 80th birthday year, the Ghanaian master Gideon Alorwoyie will play alongside Mantra Percussion, who will perform selections from Drumming to explore this modern music masterpiece and the Ghanaian music by which it was inspired. The ensemble will also perform Reich’s iconic Four Organs, a work composed just prior to Drumming, as well as the hyper-minimalist tour de force Music for Pieces of Wood for Drumset arranged by Reich collaborator, percussionist David Cossin. The evening’s program charts the evolution of Reich’s compositional development from minimalism forward, conveying a narrative context while exploring the African influences found frequently across the work of this American master.
