#176 Mariaelena Ferrer “Spirituality and Politics”

Back at it for another round of deep thoughts and wild talks with Mariaelena.

The second Monday of the month is inspired by the book, Espiritualidad y Politica, which was published 10 years ago, of which Mariaelena was a contributor. She is also the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission.

Today, we veer ever so slightly away from the book and into the realm of taxes and billionaires, inspired by the recent Propublica Article revealing how little they pay in proportion to their wealth. In addition to the article, our conversation is also inspired by the documentary film Saving Capitalism based on the book by Robert Reich.

Send us any and all thoughts, we love to hear them. Thank you to Anthony for sharing his thoughts from our May conversation!

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.

#170 Mary Haddad and Ann Pierre-Louis “All Black Lives Matter”

Mary Haddad is an artist and student who took an idea she had about how to respond to the repeated destruction of a Black Lives Matter sign and turned that idea into a transformational, collaborative, creative experience for students of both the Oakwood Friends School, where the sign had been destroyed, and Spackenkill community which she’s a part of. The result of her efforts is a beautiful mural commemorating the lives of just a few who have been killed by police in the past several years.

Also joining in our conversation is student clerk of the Oakwood Friends School, Ann Pierre-Louis, who helped to get the Oakwood Friends School students involved and who joined in painting portions of the mural.

The mural is currently part of the I.D.E.A. Inclusion, Diversity and Equity in America Gallery show at Cornell Creative Arts Center in Kingston.

The I.D.E.A. art exhibition is a collaboration with New Horizons Resources (NHR), The Arc Mid-Hudson, and the Cornell Creative Arts Center. It was conceived to enable the diverse population of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities supported by NHR, and their staff to express their feelings about social injustice in our world and our community. This show highlights artwork that expresses thoughts, feelings and experiences in regard to racism, social injustices and oppression faced by people supported and employed through both NHR and The Arc Mid-Hudson. Their hope is that the work in this exhibit promotes a mutual understanding of how racism impacts our entire society and community, and provides opportunity for constructive dialogue and positive change. They aim to create an environment where people can feel safe and supported in their need to discuss these very important topics and their impact. The Exhibition is on display from May 1-July 31, 2021.

You can view the virtual gallery online here.

Mary’s mural will travel throughout the Hudson Valley, temporarily leaving the I.D.E.A. exhibit to be a part of a Juneteenth event at Mansion Square Park in Poughkeepsie, and then moving to the WomensWork.Art Gallery in August and the Art Effect Gallery in September.

Additional students who participated in the mural are from Oakwoods Friends School: Kaylie Agresta, Brandon Christansen, Shakiba Daqiq, Molly Doherty, Brooklyn Dottin, Celeste Farangi, Bella Gedeon, Ryan Kraehar, lla Kumar (ee-luh), Ra Kumar, Aubrey Mahoney, Kishi Oyagi, Ally Ramos, Fio Sachs, Lulu Schloss, Ruby Schloss, Jareth Stokum, Jenine Tobias, Ibrahim Waheed (ee-bra-heem) and from Spackenkill Community: Mariam Baloch, Ria Bhutani, Amelia Chapin, Maya Chinkan, Emily Cohen, Andrew Chun, Kathryn Gagliardi, Ava Geer, Grace Haddad, Najib Haddad (nuh-jeeb), Yousef Haddad, Mya Hansen, Anikha Justin, Kathryn Kaylor, Isaac Kolisch, Emily Ma, Sophia Maslyn, Elizabeth Mastrantuono, Ofeibea Micah (oh-fey-bee-uh), Olivia Michail, Liam Moren, Udaya Rattan, Deshaun Smith, Abigail Straus, Anoushka Swain, Hannah Ullinger

After our conversation, I share a bit about open-mindedness, which perhaps is an important element to real change as it relates to both law enforcement and other elements of our world that could use an upgrade. Open-Mindedness on NPR. Here’s the Implicit Association Test mentioned in the NPR program.

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda from Radio Kingston, AND produced, hosted, and edited by ME, Theresa, so please forgive any hiccups.

#169 Kayleigh Stack “The Community Storytelling Composition Project”

Kayleigh Stack is an activist, artist, community steward, medicine womxn and a member of the neurodivergent community assuming the various roles of multidisciplinary performance artist, ethnographic researcher, oral historian and acupuncture clinician. Over the past ten years she has orchestrated spaces for people to share recorded audios of poignant histories and stories oriented around critical social and political narratives to be presented in an Oral History Performance Initiative: The Community Storytelling Composition Project.

https://www.thecommunitystorytellingcompositionproject.com.

Most of her work focuses on socio-political discourse, drawing upon performance as a subversive tool to generate conversation around a particular poignant or charged subject including; Disconnection, Involuntary Waste, Local Food Systems, Hydraulic Fracking, Gender politics and Systemic injustices.

She has degrees in Sociology from Hunter College, NY, Anthropology from SUNY New Paltz, NY, a Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and a NYS, NCCAOM Licensed Acupuncturist. Kayleigh is a part of the incoming Masters of Oral History cohort at Columbia University, and she will begin her PhD studies in Humanities at Concordia University with the Fall 2022 class.

All of The CSCProject performance initiatives are less about putting on a “show” and more about generating a conversation. The hope is that this conversation does not end with the presentation alone, but translates into long-term institutional, economic, policy, and infrastructural change. In an attempt to make the performance more immersive, we find non-invasive, tactile ways to connect with the audience through various props.

Here’s a link to the online Zine that was discussed today as well!

And here’s the “No One Like You” interview with several of the other CSCP collaborators.

#145 Perla Ayora and Martha Preve Ayora of “No me Digas!”

Today I get to speak with two creative latinas, Perla and Martha. They’ve collaborated together on several projects including this short, OFF OFF OFF OFF Broadway, and their new radio show “No me Digas” on Radio Kingston.

Martha Lorena Preve Ayora @martha_preve one half of the dynamic duo behind No Me Digas on Radio Kingston. She is a Mexican theater and film actress, writer, director and producer. She is the co-founder of Something from Abroad  @somethingfromabroad an Indie theater company based in NYC. Originally from the Yucatan Peninsula, Martha loves creating art that mixes English and Spanish and combines her Mexican traditions and culture with American characters. Martha has also been working as a Stage Manager OFF BROADWAY. In her free time, she enjoys reading, going to the beach and watching as much dark comedy as she can!

Perla’s back! As the other half of the creative team behind “No Me Digas” on @radiokingstonny and frequent collaborator with her cuz Martha, she’s been busy since February when she was last on the show to talk about her stand up comedy. Soooo much has happened, or not happened since then, but cleary Perla’s making the most of it while stand-up is on hold. As a stand-up comedian @perla_ayora enjoys writing songs, poems, essays, and… jokes. As a member of the Radio Kingston tech team, if you’ve ever been to one of their supported events, you’ve likely seen her dancing between wires, framing cameras, or setting up a stage with complex technical sound design. Originally from Yucatan, Mexico, Perla now lives in Kingston with her hubby and two children.

No me Digas” Is a bilingual show about top news and contemporary events, hosted by two latina comedy writers, Martha Preve Ayora and me, Perla Ayora. We will make you think and laugh at the same time. It’s fun and informative, informativo y divertido. Irreverent and unapologetic, sorry, maybe just irreverent. This show will promise to exceed your expectations as long as they are very low. Tune in and if you support diversity share this show with the people you like, if not, share it with the people you don’t like. There is a lot of division in this world, we hope at least we can laugh together. It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak Spanish, you will end up yelling “¡No Me Digas!”

Here’s the collage class I was talking about with past guest Mel Toth.

Here’s the article I referenced on 3-Minute Commitments!

#137 Maria Elena Ferrer-Harrington “Artist and Consultant”

Maria Elena Ferrer-Harrington is the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock — a network of individuals whose mission is to provide confidential and fully accessible crisis intervention, information, prevention, and support services to address the needs of individuals and families, and a socially engaged artist.

Maria Elena has successfully facilitated migration-related workshops since 2004. As a member of the global Athena Network Association, Maria Elena has presented her work with immigrants at the network’s annual Migration and Mental Health congress in London, Rome, Berlin and Brussels. She introduced the concept of migratory mourning nationally in 2012, and has since led migratory-mourning panel discussions at several conferences.

She is a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and has been recently appointed by Kingston’s Mayor, Steve Noble, to the City Arts Commission. Maria Elena’s drawings and paintings were recently exhibited at the Muroff–Kotler Visual Arts Gallery at the State University of New York at Ulster awarding her the opportunity to show her artwork at highly regarded Plaza Gallery of the State University of New York in Albany in 2019. She juried the Cornell Creative Arts Center’s very first exhibition, “We’re All Humans,” and inaugurated The DRAW’s new studio at the Energy Square with her art installation, “Masking Identities: Rebuilding Deterritorialized Cultural Memories,” a deep dive into the complexity of the migrant’s narrative and experience. Both art shows are open to the public through October 2020.

Today she shares her own experience as a migrant, what migratory mourning is, the complexities of migration, rebirthing and of course ART!

Today’s show was engineered by Manuel Blas of La Dosis Perfecta.

#130 Morgan Millogo and Meg Affonso of “Tabs & Clea” and “BODY”

Morgan Millogo graduated with a BFA in Film and Television Production from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. A Washington native, Morgan spent five years as part of the Seattle Indy film scene as an actor and director and was also a Burlesque Performer and Emcee. After the unexpected death of her father, Morgan lived as a nomad and became a Certified Contemporary Shamanic Practitioner and Yogi. Now relocated to the Hudson Valley, Morgan most recently worked as Head of Production at InsideRisk LLC and part of the core content team, overseeing the development of an interactive television series as well as live multi-media events throughout the world focused on fostering critical thinking. Her recently released web series, TABS AND CLEA, marks her first project as a writer, actor, director and producer since the passing of her father in 2010. 

Meg Affonso is an intuitive artist, actor, choreographer, writer, producer & director; she is a gifted storyteller who has the performing arts ingrained in her soul. Meg has performed in a variety of theatrical productions, ranging from musical theatre to dramatic plays. Meg has studied various forms of dance throughout her life and has performed in film, web series productions, commercials & television. Meg has written two screenplays & a stage play and continues to be open to art in all of its forms. Meg’s mission is to tell stories that matter & to help others by introducing them to art as a multifaceted healing modality. She is one of the cast of Tabs & Clea and has an upcoming performance show titled, BODY, happening at the Albany Center Gallery the next three consecutive Sundays. Morgan directed the short film which will be a part of the performance.

Tabs & Clea: Tabs, a psychic who has dedicated her life to helping people, has fallen into a crisis of faith.  When her audacious ex-roommate, Clea, unexpectedly shows up and demands to know why Tabs has stopped using her gift, Tabs is forced to face and discover the truth of a tragedy she did not foresee.

BODY: Sundays, August 2, 9, & 16, from [2:00] – 4:00 p.m. — Meg Affonso and Albany Center Gallery present BODY, an experiential and immersive art installation that explores the sacred connection between the body and the soul that exists in each individual. The public is invited to attend free of charge (ages 12 & up, content not suitable for small children). Signing up in advance is recommended to reserve a spot, but walk-ins are accepted if there is available room. Do so here: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/body-tickets-112398521002 Shows are filling up!

The elements of BODY include: three short dance/dialogue-based films, live sculpture + movement, an immersive audience experience, collective artistic creation, photography, and movement labs and release through writing that will be transformed into physical art that represents rebirth. BODY is inspired by the poem “I Sing the Body Electric” by Walt Whitman and also by the current events in today’s world. BODY is representative of the struggles that individuals face from birth through death and the beauty that exists in between all of the difficulties. BODY is an examination of our ego, prejudices, biases and the truth of what we can be if we choose to grow and live our soul’s truth. This piece is a collective experience for the community not just by telling a story, but also by encouraging art as a path to the healing and joy that we can all experience no matter our backgrounds or beliefs.

Today we talk about being storytellers, relationships, their work, ego and women in TV and film. Lots of fun, lots of laughs too!

And here’s the previous show with Maria we mentioned!

Today’s show was engineered Nick Panken host of Freedom Highway from radiokingston.org

#122 “The Worst Years” Podcast with Sabine, Noelle and Maeve

Today I have the honor of playing an interview I did with the three girls who are the hosts of The Worst Years podcast.

Maeve is an only child with two moms and a dog named Brooklyn. She lived in Brooklyn, NY, until she was eight (hence the name of her dog). This summer, she will turn 11. Maeve is a competitive gymnast and plays clarinet. Her favorite subjects in school are writing, reading, science, art, and anything related to music. Maeve loves hiking and biking and everything outdoors. She’s been going to Wild Earth since she was five. When she grows up, she wants to be an interior designer.

Sabine is the middle child of a big family that lives in a three-generational household. She plays cello and piano and will be 11 this summer. She wants to be a mathematician for NASA when she grows up, so she can study the stars. She became a vegetarian when she saw a billboard about animal rights. When asked what’s her favorite thing to do, she says, “Eat. Sleep. Play. Repeat.”

Noelle at age 10 3/4 is the youngest of two children and lives happily between her amicably split parents. Noelle loves reading and writing. She likes cats, playing the ukulele, comedy, and dislikes the color chartreuse. Noelle sings and plays string bass, and thrives on karaoke in her spare time. Bitten by the theater bug last year in the high school production of Matilda, she has developed a love of the stage, and when she grows up, Noelle wants to be an actor on Broadway!

We learn about the making of their podcast, middle school, their likes and dislikes and life during quarantine!

Today’s show was engineered by Manuel Blas of Radio Kingston, www.radiokingston.org.

We heard music from our fave, Shana Falana, http://www.shanafalana.com/ AND the girls’ suggestions: “Joke” by Brandi Carlile, “Would You Be So Kind” by Dodie, and “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish

#113 Leach Gooch “Four Minutes a Day”

Yay! Brainy Fox is back! Our theme music by Shana Falana rides again!!! Ida and I check in, get deep about fear and thriving and then I play an interview with Leah Gooch of Four Minutes a Day who offers Reiki, Yoga, and Meditation. Leah shares some of her journey to and through Reiki and how she does remote distant Reiki services. I attempt to analogize this phenomenon with Quantum Physics. If anyone out there really understands Quantum Physics/Mechanics, please come and be a guest on my show! Leah, otherwise known as Gooch, also shares her work in jails and prisons and talks a bit about her experience there and the profound shifts she’s seen in her students from experiencing yoga and meditation with one another. She’s been offering a daily 4 minute meditation, sent via email, to everyone on her mailing list and expects to continue throughout the physical distancing period we are going through. She has a few remaining free remote Reiki sessions available and thereafter offers her work on a sliding scale. She’s awesome and wonderful, and I am grateful for her work here on this planet. Gooch’s words of advice for what we’re going through right now…”call your Mother, be kind to others and to yourself.” Yes, yes, yes.

Today’s show was engineered by Ida Hakkila of Radio Kingston, http://www.radiokingston.org.

We heard music from our fave, Shana Falana, http://www.shanafalana.com/
