Sunday, May 31: It’s You I Like, Episode 2
This Sunday’s episode of It’s You I Like tackles the subject of relationships and is presented as part of New Dance Alliance’s Performance Mix Festival, May 4-21. The miniseries is loosely structured after the beloved Mr. Rogers, appropriating the world of make-believe, confusing the line between reality and fiction with the hope of leaving viewers feeling a little less alone. Be sure to register your free ticket to the Zoom room.


Monday, June 1: The How Now Show with Kevin Cain
This week’s episode of How Now will feature a lovely chat under a tree at Silo City with producer and emcee ToneyBoi of Koolie High. Kevin will also be chatting with Alison Mitchell of Velvet Bethany and premiering a new video she made on her phone during quarantine. As always, Toni Haugen of Queen City Health and Wellness will lead viewers through a Qigong breathing exercise. We may have a surprise guest this week, so tune in to find out who it is!


Wednesday, June 3: Pam Glick at NADA Art Fair
The Arts Collaboratory features Pam Glick during Week 3 of the NADA Art Fair, a second large-scale painting from her series, Dream House: Niagara-USA-Canada. The work was featured in Glick’s solo show at Anderson Gallery in 2019, presented in collaboration with the Arts Collaboratory. The Collaboratory is pleased to participate in this new cooperative online initiative organized by the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) that supports a community of artists, galleries, non-profits and performing arts organizations.

Thursday, June 4: Jason Z. Zhang On Drums
Since moving to distance learning in UB’s Department of Music, Jason Zhang has been creating and recording every day. Living in an apartment with roommates requires creativity in keeping the sound at respectful levels, so Jason has been experimenting with an electronic kit. By layering organic textures and cool sounds from the e-kit’s library, Jason has made a kind of “primal” feeling dance groove. Check it out—it is indeed moody and groovy.
