April 10th, 10pm @White Box Dance Theater 

Bill Shannon is an internationally renowned artist, break dancer, and skate punk who wields his crutches as tools of expression and weapons of provocation. Born with a rare hip defect that prevents him from standing and walking without crutches, Bill’s legendary street performances and videos challenge narrow notions of ability. The energy, elegance, and fluidity of Bill dancing on crutches, combined with his use of a skateboard for mobility, have earned him a Newhouse Foundation Award, a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, and a Foundation for Contemporary Art Award, among others. As part of Wonderland at White Box, Bill will continue to explore street performance and contemporary club culture through his own mark of creative resilience.

"March is upon us, and so our March NYLON Book Club pick has arrived, too.

This month, we’ll be reading Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi, which was published just yesterday!

The up-and-coming author is a favorite of Nylon’s eternal writer-crush Aimee Bender, and last weekend, after referencing both Kanye West and New York Magazine art critic Larry Saltz—two more eternal crushes—in its opening paragraph, the New York Times Book Review declared: “With Boy, Snow, Bird, a culmination of a young life spent culling dreamscapes, Oyeyemi’s confidence is palpableâ ‘it’s clear that this is the book she’s been waiting for.’”

Professors Andrea Marx, Susan Lazear, and Diana Cavagnaro have worked with History Center staff to select uniquely original 1930s garments for Fashion Redux! 2014 that will tantalize the eye. The 1930s were known for draped fabrics, long, flowing gowns, and elegant shawls and capes that exquisitely captured the beauty and shape of the female form.
