The Winter's Tale by William Shakespeare, Directed by Nicholas Martin-Smith

Written late in William Shakespeare’s career, The Winter’s Tale (1609-1611) is a story of jealousy, loss, and redemption. Leontes, the King of Sicily, believes his pregnant wife is carrying his best friend’s love child. Leontes’s jealousy turns to tyranny as the king proceeds to destroy his entire family and a lifelong friendship. Sixteen long years pass, and we witness one of the most astonishing endings in English literature. (summary via Shmoop dot com)

<![CDATA[“Bad Woods”]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/09/20/bad-woods http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/09/20/bad-woods Date: September 20, 2014

The Lenape called this the place of the bad woods.
There is an impulse to go wandering down to the marsh.
The wildness of the dark woods haunts me.

“Bad Woods” is an hour-long dance performance and music installation, inspired by the native Lenape and the forests that exist in present day. Explore the wildness as it manifests within shadows, light, and the silhouetted movement during the sunset.

This performance is choreographed by Melissa West and is part of the “Arts in the Greenbelt” program series.

Registration is required.

Start time: 6:30 pm
