Online / Zoom
Curated and co-hosted by Beatrice Antonie Martino and Victoria Martino, as part of Co-Creating Europe's Caravan of Unity, September 1-21, 2020. As we face this time of collective loss and mourning, we come together as a global community. We invite you to join us for a special ritual of remembrance, keeping vigil for all the lives and loves that we have lost in 2020. Let us honor our past, embrace our present, and anticipate our future in a spirit of unity and co-creation. Beatrice and Victoria invite you to participate in a ritual of music, dance, poetry, prayer, and meditation, honoring our collective and individual losses. They will be joined by performing artists from around the globe, whose contributions symbolize the power of art to unify and heal a hurting world. The ceremony will begin and end with light – representing our shared flame of life. Moments of music and spoken word will alternate with times of silent prayer and meditation. Everyone will be invited to name their personal losses and participate in embodied practices for grief healing. All are welcome. Please bring a candle and a significant memento or personal artifact representing a loss or losses you have experienced this year.

Are our lives determined by chance, fate, or free will? What role does choice play? In This is Not a Theatre Company’s interactive online performance Readymade Cabaret 2.0, the play’s structure is determined by the audience, who roll dice to choose which scenes we perform, and in what order. Based on Marcel Duchamp’s notions of readymade art and the philosophies of Dada as practiced by Tristan Tzara, Readymade Cabaret 2.0 speaks to the current COVID moment by asking whether our lives are determined by chance, fate, or free will. Character-based scenes are interspersed with computer-generated Dada poetry, computer-generated art, audience-created aleatory music, and Chances Dances created by audience prompts typed into the chat. Celebrate the beauty of chance encounters and make your own meaning! Conceived and directed by Erin B Mee, scenes by Jessie Bear with additional text by Ezra Brain. Featuring actors Kara Green, Marisa LaRuffa, Christopher Morriss and Lipica Shah, and Bea Antonie Martino, Chance Dances and Aleatory Compositions co-created by the audience with Jonathan Matthews and Bea Antonie Martino, computer art by Dyan Jong, readymade video art by Bea Antonie Martino, and computer-generated Dada poetry by Brent Bailey. Performances: Nov 8, 2pm Nov 13, 8pm Nov 14-15, 2pm & 8pm Nov 20, 8pm Nov 21-22, 2pm & 8pm Dec 4, 8pm Dec 5-6, 2pm & 8pm

The Gratitude Gathering

Online / Zoom
A virtual mini-retreat co-produced by Bea Martino / Reimagine and Kristin Urquiza / Marked by COVID. How can we use the power of gratitude during difficult times? Heading into Thanksgiving, join a three-day virtual retreat to honor our losses, connect with our inner sources of gratitude, and nourish our hearts. We will come together to reimagine Thanksgiving and prepare ourselves for the winter holiday season ahead. Join us for a unique multi-day experience of community connection, creativity, and celebration. Led by a diverse group of primarily BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) speakers, artists, and healers, The Gratitude Gathering will offer you valuable tools to evoke and express thanksgiving in a way that works for you. Our goal is to provide a meaningful experience for all who have experienced loss, with special care paid to those who have been deeply affected by COVID-19. Reimagine and Marked by COVID are partnering to co-host The Gratitude Gathering for all who have experienced loss and are facing the coming holiday season with uncertainty. Holidays are often times of extreme vulnerability and grief. Thanksgiving, in particular, can be the most difficult holiday, because of its traditional association with large family gatherings. However, even in the darkest seasons of sorrow, reasons for gratitude and joy can be found. As we look back on a year of deep collective grief and physical distancing, how can we connect across cultural and geographical divides to reimagine the holiday of Thanksgiving?

Online / Zoom
Let us come together to reflect on this year and find hope, as we honor our loved ones this holiday season through story-sharing, community connection, artistic offerings, and interactive rituals. The holidays can be hard - especially this year, as we come to terms with the countless losses we have experienced and many of us cannot be together with our loved ones. As we approach the end of 2020, let us take time to be together in community - honoring all that we have experienced this year and planting seeds of hope for the new year. Hosted by Reimagine’s Founder and Executive Director, Brad Wolfe, and multimedia artist and grief advocate, Bea Martino, this special event will include a creative expression ritual led by Indiginous spiritual counselor Yvonne Brock, breakout sessions for story-sharing facilitated by Taylor Buehler and Charly Jaffe from the COVID Grief Network, a grounding meditation with end-of-life doula Oceana Sawyer, a musical offering by violinist Mindy Anderson, poetry with writer and interfaith minister Naila Francis and more! Join us for a beautiful day of community connection and ritual to round off 2020! Note: Please bring a candle, a notebook and/or paper, and a pen for an interactive ritual experience.

What Remains

Gallatin Galleries: 1 Washington Pl, New York, NY
What Remains is a multimedia installation exploring grief, loss, and the ephemeral traces we leave behind, through the artistic lenses of video art, projection, sound, sculpture, and performance. What memories, objects, and legacies of a lived life are left behind when someone dies? And how do these traces live on in the bereaved? What is the experience of reconstructing one’s life after a shattering loss? And what do we learn about our own mortality and ephemeral existence in the process? Driven by multiple experiences of personal loss, Beatrice Antonie Martino has been exploring these themes in her creative work since 2007. Her work is characterized as participatory, dynamic, and multi-faceted, and is fueled by the belief that art, life, growth, and purpose arise from the complex relationship between multiplicity and unity. Her current artistic work is grounded in academic research, which involves the critical analysis of contemporary views of death and grief in the U.S.. In a society where death and grief are marginalized and taboo, Beatrice believes that we need to make more concerted efforts to create space for the processing of these experiences. What Remains is an attempt to do just that. Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday, 10 am – 6 pm
