If you find yourself in New York City this Memorial Day Weekend, we have compiled three events focusing on art and culture to keep you busy and entertained throughout the long weekend. Catch a thought provoking performance at Danspace Project, enjoy DanceAfrica 2017 at BAM or explore flowers that may have inspired Georgia O’Keeffe at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, before heading over to see an exhibition on the artist at the Brooklyn Museum.

“The End of Men, Again” Performance

Danspace Project presents “Vanessa Anspaugh: The End of Men, Again” from Thursday, May 25 to Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 8 p.m.

Under the new Trump regime, choreographer Vanessa Anspaugh finds a renewed relevance in her continued research and critique of male masculinities with a new dance-theater work, “The End of Men, Again.” From her subject position as a lesbian choreographer and mother to a new son, along with an all cis-male cast, the performance explores how power lives in, and between, all of the participating bodies. Anspaugh investigates masculine vulnerability and the historical and unyielding dynamics of cultural domination.

Tickets are $22, $15 for members and $10 for children 12 or under. Danspace Project is located at St. Mark’s Church, 131 E 10th St, New York, NY 10003. www.danspaceproject.org.
