  • EVERYTHING’S FINE: A Performative Exploration of Mental Illness

    Sun, September 8, 7:00pm
    Admission $15
    Mental illness comes in different forms, and in many ways, society still does not know how to deal with it or those who suffer from it. EVERYTHING’S FINE presents performances of music, poetry, theater, and other art that grapples with the difficulties of coping with different types of mental illness. Rather than concealing the condition, we can use art to connect emotionally with these difficulties, whether they’re experienced firsthand or through a friend or relative.
    PERFORMANCES BY: Akio Mokuno, Allison Brzezinski-Scorese, Hitomi Honda, Howie Kenty/HWARG, Patrick Brzezinski-Scorese, Rebekah Norris, Steven T. Licardi, Thoughtress Poetry

  • Simona Minns

    Fri, September 13, 9:30pm
    Simona Minns: 'My Urban Spells"
    Simona Minns is a Lithuanian born jazz vocalist, composer and zitherist based in New York City. She is regularly performing locally in New York jazz venues with her quartet, as well as touring in different parts of the world, such as Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Simona's style is known for its unique theatrical flavor, genre-bending, and virtuosic vocal scat improvisation. 'My Urban Spells' is a musical controversy between tribal roots, zither sounds, and chants incorporated into urban musical styles such as jazz and rock.
    Her latest album, “A Hunger Artist," blends haunting vocals with elements of Lithuanian folk, jazz and even musical theater to convey the narrative of Franz Kafka's short story by the same title.
    Classically trained on Lithuanian zither, Simona earned her BA in jazz vocals at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theater. Shortly after receiving the European Touring Scholarship, she moved to the United States to study at Berklee College of Music where she majored in Contemporary Composition and Production.
