Deep Breath with MrJeffDess
#11
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Join us for DEEP BREATH, a tour de force performance by actor and spoken word artist, MrJeffDess, for Black History Month at Art House.

Art House Productions presents DEEP BREATH by MrJeffDess

Friday, February 10th at 8 PM Doors at 7:30 PM
Produced by Leah Jackson

Advance ticketing for General Admission is $15 and $20 at the door and $10 for Students/Seniors.

Eric Garner's last words were "I Can't Breathe." This piercing one-man poetic and theatrical show challenges the community to start the healing process as well as find answers. MrJeffDess presents a painfully honest performance inspired by the protest, hope, and sadness. DEEP BREATH directly engages with the audience and is a tour de force, energetic experience. Through intense storytelling, MrJeffDess pushes and almost dares the audience to take the deepest breaths possible in order to find answers.

https://www.facebook.com/events/136780566820444/

Coming together in Jersey City

5-minute open mike for poets, actors, comics and musicians
NOTE: There are 18 first come, first serve performances spaces available!

Hosted by Lillian Bustle

ABOUT RYAN ROMAN
Ryan Roman is an 18-year-old Jersey City-based stand-up comic. He was born and raised in Jersey City and has been trying to live every day to the fullest. However, girls, mixtape-guys, and a whole lot of mono are stopping him. He's been writing "jokes" since he was 15 years old, and has been performing semi-consistently for the past couple of months. He tackles issues that plague the life of the average 18-year-old Puerto Rican (yes, I know he looks white and maybe even Egyptian, to be honest, but if it helps his middle name is Antonio). He has featured at Soul of the City's Open Mic at Bright Side Tavern and performed at various other local locations. He doesn't have a lot on his resume, so this feature is going to look real good on it.

Art House Open Mic Performance Series
featuring SEAN VAN KLEEFF

THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 2017
8-10PM * $5

Poets * Musicians * Performance Artists
Coming together in Jersey City

5-minute open mike for poets, actors, comics and musicians
NOTE: There are 18 first come, first serve performances spaces available!

Hosted by Lillian Bustle

ABOUT SEAN VAN KLEEFF
Sean Van Kleeff is a poet... kinda. Ya, let's call him a poet sure. But don't put him next to Whitman or Dickinson or Poe or Frost in your local Barnes and Nobles. The turn in their graves would be a shock enough to kickstart the zombie apocalypse. Plus Sean Van Kleeff does not have a book. I think by now you know I, Sean Van Kleeff, am writing this and writing in the third just will not do. This is a biography, so I'm going to tell it exactly like it happened...

I was born in a cornfield outside a little town in Alabama on the hottest of summer afternoons. My birth was marked by a comet that was discovered by a home astronomer trying to see their neighbor make "Whoopi." The pastor who delivered me was a practicing Protestant, but I didn't say this was a perfect story. In fact, let's fast forward past childhood and get to the part about the word stuff. That's what you wanna know. Questions raised in your mind from very valid points of view. What's this guy about? Is he gonna suck? Is he tanking this biography? To answer your second question, no. To answer your third question, no. To answer your first question.... Its stuff that may or may not involve glass bottom boats, tuna fish, math jokes, stories about how my kids face looks when he poops and how that relates to 16th century French artists specific to Northwest Paris, smacks (the cereal), gingerbread houses, ways to piss off Nascar fans, homeschooling your gerbils, beetle fistfights, other useful things you can do with a crucifix, and of course, Christmas trees and the folks who love them. In the future, I will invent a way to make laser nunchucks. Chase your dream is my message. Come laugh and drink whiskey.

Artists Ask Mayoral Candidates Tough Questions

Artists Ask Mayoral Candidates Tough Questions

By JCI Staff ? May 13th, 2013


Over the course of the mayoral campaign, local nonprofit arts groups Pro Arts, Art House Productions, and Nimbus Dance Works joined forces to create an arts-specific questionnaire in hopes of coming to a better understanding of how each mayoral candidate will support the thriving arts scene in Jersey City if elected.

Each candidate responded, providing an in-depth look into their views on the arts and their importance to the future of the city.

Q: Where and how do the arts fit with your vision for the future of Jersey City? What policies would you propose and enact that would provide a supportive environment for successful Jersey City artists and arts organizations.

Jerramiah Healy (incumbent): Jersey City?s arts community is unique, active and vibrant, making our city a better place to live and visit?The arts are also a vital component for maintaining the economic stability of Jersey City? I happen to be a music lover. I play the piano and guitar and most know that I love to sing, so the performing arts are near and dear to my heart?I look to Jersey City artists to help set the agenda and identify what they feel will best move our city forward in regards to the arts?That is why I have taken on the initiatives of our local groups and provided assistance to them in the form of staffing, funding, rentals, etc?.My administration?s focus is to foster an environment that encourages new art-related development, while supporting and expanding local arts initiated programs. I will continue to do that while also looking for creative methods to address the need for new venues.

Steven Fulop: Generally speaking, my approach to fostering an even stronger arts community has three components: education, incubation and implementation. We will accomplish art education in partnership with our schools; helping them to find their creative voices while they?re young will bring about a new generation of artists who consider Jersey City home?Art incubation means creating an atmosphere in Jersey City government which is supportive and helpful to aspiring artists. I will accomplish my third goal, implementation, with what I like to call the NewSpace program (which will be) a collaboration between the Jersey City Economic Development Corporation, the Division of Cultural affairs, local artists, and investors.

Abdul Malik: I believe that art plays a vital role in a society and shows how vibrant and culturally diverse a society is. As mayor, I will provide needed help to the artists and different art groups both in funding as well as other support that city can provide and will encourage Department of Cultural Affairs to work with different groups in an encouraging and supportive way.

Jerry Walker: (What the Walker administration) would propose and enact to provide a supportive environment for JC artists and art organizations would be more collaboration between artists and organizations, (artist-organization coalitions) to strengthen the arts districts, (artists and organizations wherever and) whenever possible working (as) joint ventures?My administration would assist in seeking donations, grants and foundation funding for artist and arts organizations (and also) work with our colleges and universities.



Q: Jersey City has few viable art venues. Quality venues are indispensable for a thriving art scene for multiple reasons: They help to bolster an art group?s identity with a clear destination for events and practice; they help build the legitimacy of arts organizations in the eyes of funders; they create a focus and a buzz contributing to the sense that something is happening in Jersey City; and they help with artistic quality by allowing for improved production and presentation in the areas of lighting, set design/construction, exhibition space, audio/acoustics, etc. Without professional venues for exhibition and performance, the arts are severely impeded. What will you do as mayor to address this critical need?

Healy: I have an obligation to keep taxes stable, to meet housing needs of low income families, and address unemployment?Those needs must be prioritized with the needs of local nonprofits. That said, there are plenty of things my administration has been doing?new art venues can be encouraged through zoning and property use changes, such as the new Riverview Arts District? In addition to that, my administration is committed to sustaining the majestic Landmark Loew?s Jersey Theatre in Journal Square?The long-awaited restoration of the Van Wagenen House, affectionately known as the ?Apple Tree House? is near completion?Lastly, we are very excited about the new White Eagle Hall project located on Newark Avenue?Plans are to develop the property as a mixed-use arts center and performance space.

Fulop: My NewSpace program will address this need?(by first acting) as a scout, identifying properties which meet criteria such as vacancy or underutilization, size and availability. NewSpace will then hold a public forum where businesses, organizations and individuals will have the opportunity to present proposals for the property?A board made up of representatives of the artistic community, city government and neighborhoods near the property will vote on a winner?The winner will then work closely with the JCEDC to negotiate financing and help via public-private partnership. New locations should be driven by the arts community not just a select organization.

Malik: I agree that quality venues are indispensable for a thriving art scene for multiple reasons and I believe that Jersey City needs a fully equipped art gallery for artists to plan exhibitions and without patronizing by the city, it?s very difficult for the art groups to survive? Without professional venues for exhibition and performance, the arts are severely impeded. As mayor, I will do all what I can within the (city?s)resources to help art groups.

Walker: JC needs a state-of-the-art performance center and cultural museum that will provide space for local groups and artists.

Q: Toll Brothers is committed to building a 500-fixed-seat theater (a proscenium theater) in the PAD as part of a development now under construction; but the real need in Jersey City is for two or three small, flexible theaters (black box theaters, capacity 50 to 200) that would cost about the same amount of money. Two or three such spaces would create a destination, a critical mass, that would make Jersey City recognized as a major player in the art world; small theaters are inexpensive and easier to fill; black box theaters can be used for a variety of purposes such as dance, theater, music, pop music, weddings and other events, so it would be easier to support itself. Theaters of this modest size would serve local artists much more effectively?giving local artists a much needed resource for their growth and emergence. On the other hand, a 500-seat theater is expensive to rent and would only be able to show major productions that would have to compete with New York City?s theater and entertainment resources. Jersey City already has theaters with 500 seats or more which are underutilized because they don?t meet the needs of Jersey City artists: they?re too large to fill and no one wants to present (or attend) a production with an empty house. Would you as mayor change the Toll Brothers redevelopment plan to call for black box theaters?

Healy: I am committed to working with Toll Brothers to allow public input about the best use of the theater space and other areas included in the project before construction begins. I understand the pitch for black box theaters in (the PAD) and will ask Toll Brothers to take that into consideration. Though there is an approved preliminary site plan, I will request a meeting with Toll Brothers and the artist community for input on the totality of performance space included in the project.

Fulop: The development in question is symptomatic of a deeper problem with Jersey City: its relationship with developers. Unfortunately, the story of the PAD over the last decade or so is a perfect example of money and connections trumping the will of the people?I want to shift the focus of the JCEDC away from land and real-estate development towards small businesses and startups?With regards to an overall amendment requiring black box theaters, it is not clear what the legal implications (would be)?or how that would be structured. I think the city would be best served by visiting multiple redevelopment sites around the city for amendments so that the arts community will flourish not only in one small pocket of the city but rather in every corner.

Malik: I agree that Jersey City needs small theaters as small theaters are inexpensive and easier to fill; black box theaters can be used for a variety of purposes such as dance, theater, music, pop music, weddings and other events, so it would be easier (for it) to support itself. Theaters of this modest size would serve local artists much more effectively?giving local artists a much needed resource for their growth and emergence. As mayor, I will do my best to help art groups to have a small theater by lobbying to different developers and the State of New Jersey.

Walker: My administration would go back and change the 500-seat theater and require smaller venues throughout the city that will not be underutilized.

Q: The city currently owns multiple unused buildings and properties which could easily be converted for temporary use as exhibition space, studio space, and, where possible, performance space. Such use would serve artists, beautify the streetscape, and promote pedestrian foot traffic. Would you enact legislation to make such spaces available to Jersey City artists and arts groups?

Healy: At this time there are no vacant buildings that I know of which would be appropriate for an arts center or performance space. The truth of the matter is that our Business Administrator has been charged with bringing in as many dollars as possible to balance the budget and keep taxes stable for our homeowners in this financial crisis. Part of that directive was to sell off city-owned properties and get them back on the tax rolls. Our city has experienced massive cuts from the State of New Jersey and we must make up that shortfall. That having been said, if available city owned properties pass fire code inspections they could be made available to nonprofit organizations on a case-by-case basis.

Fulop: Yes. This is exactly the kind of thing NewSpace will target.

Malik: Yes, I think that city can and should help in this regards and as mayor, I will provide the needed help.

Walker: My administration will allow for city-owned property to be used as temporary-use?artistic venues. Some properties may also become permanent.

Q: The Cultural Affairs Division is a hub for arts and culture in Jersey City. Given cut-backs in funding, how can resources be prioritized to ensure that they can effectively reach out and provide support to the diverse communities that make up Jersey City? Would you personally as mayor use your office to help artists and arts groups to reach out to corporations and individuals for funding?

Healy: In the face of staffing and budget cuts, I am proud of the work that the Division of Cultural Affairs has done? Though some festival funding cuts were necessary, Cultural Affairs went out and raised corporate dollars to provide seed money to our ethnic groups. In addition, they have raised corporate dollars to fund some of our concert series and assist ProArts annually with reaching out to corporate entities for tour sponsorships?City grants writers will remain cognizant of grant funding available for the arts and go after it aggressively. I have instructed our grants writers to partner with local nonprofits in seeking funding sources for citywide arts initiatives and to offer year-round assistance to local nonprofits who are writing grants. I have also encouraged our Redevelopment Agency and Economic Development Corporation to seek corporate sponsorship to help fund future art-related development and projects.

Fulop: City Hall, as well as other relevant city departments, needs to create an environment which fosters the arts?Navigating the maze of permits and regulations is so complex and time-consuming that developers pay politically connected expediters to do it for them. Those without the resources to do so, such as artists and cultural organizations, are left to fend for themselves. In addition to streamlining the city?s various approval processes, I want my office to be a resource for help securing state and federal grant funding, as well as donations and corporate investment.

Malik: Yes, I think that city can and should help in this regards and as mayor I will provide the needed help.

Walker: Yes, the Mayor?s Office can be utilized to support various artist endeavors including (submitting) grant applications to major corporations and foundations.

Q: The City Council by an 8 to 1 vote approved a resolution in October 2006 urging the City to set aside 1 percent of the hotel tax revenues (up to $100,000) for the promotion of tourism, particularly ?Jersey City?s art community, its cultural resources, such as museums and theaters, and its historic sites and recreational opportunities, all of which should make Jersey City both a unique tourist and vacation destination?. To date this resolution has not been adopted. If elected, would your administration commit to making these monies available to Jersey City arts and cultural organizations? If so, what process/procedure would you propose to disburse these monies equitably?

Healy: The 1% for the Arts resolution has been instituted and funding has been committed to Destination Jersey City programming. I am instructing my Budget Director to meet with the Director of the Division of Cultural Affairs to identify how much funding is available this year to support art programming in conjunction with our local arts and cultural community.

Fulop: I would certainly like to commit to making these funds available to the arts and cultural communities here but it would be subject to looking at the municipal budget post May 14th. Per recent Jersey Journal articles, the administration has been using overtime and raises as part of its campaign strategy and I would be hesitant to 100 percent commit on this front ?til I saw what the final impact is of their decisions during that time?with that in mind I do think this sort of funding is crucial and would do everything to see it through.

Malik: Yes, my administration will commit to making these monies available to Jersey City arts and cultural organizations.

Walker: Under the Walker Administration the 1 percent set aside will be strictly enforced and we will review prior years? allocation and wherever possible reallocate funds for the 1 percent set aside for arts. With regard to funding, my administration will use equal distribution of funds. For groups and or artist that demonstrate the need for additional funding, my administration will assist them in obtaining additional funds.

Thank you for your interest in the SO LOW festival, Moxiebaby!

The ticket price is $6 per show.

The one exception to this is our "shorts block" where we have bundled 3 shorter pieces together: Letters to My Mother (But Really for my Father), The Shim-Sham Slam: A Dancer's Manifesto, and Click, Start Vroom.

Also, in an effort to support the continuing development of original theater, Art House will be splitting 50% of the ticket price with the performer him/herself!

Hope you can make it out. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
