Tune in for a conversation over Zoom during the 5 p.m. hour with EMPAC curator Katherine C.M. Adams about the stage production A PLOT / A SCANDAL by Ligia Lewis that makes its East Coast Premiere at EMPAC this weekend.

A PLOT / A SCANDAL is Berlin-based dancer-choreographer Ligia Lewis’s award-winning performance that takes up “plot” in its multiple meanings. Rebellious fantasies become schemes against the limits of narration. On stage, Lewis draws together personae ranging from Enlightenment thinker John Locke to 16th-century Santo Domingo slave rebellion leader Maria Olofa, Cuban artist and revolutionary José Aponte, and her own great-grandmother. She explores what it might mean to be caught in the act. In the artist’s words, “If life is a scandal waiting to be plotted, scandals are incidents where fantasy and pleasure take center stage.” Ligia Lewis was recently announced as part of the 2024 Whitney Biennial, and she just closed her solo gallery exhibit in New York City. Curator Katherine Adams talks about bringing the stage production to EMPAC in Troy, and how the artist marks it with physical and emotional intensities where comedy and tragedy collide.

Event details can be found at empac.rpi.edu.

The "WGXC Afternoon Show" features local news, interviews with community leaders and personalities, a rundown of local and regional events, weather updates, and more about and for the community. The show is a place for a community conversation about issues, with music, and more. Saturday the emphasis is more on radio art, and art on the radio. Unlike shows by individual programmers on the station, the "WGXC Afternoon Show" is considered partially station-run. The Sunday version calls itself "Li Le, Le Tan." Tune in for local news, interviews with community leaders and personalities, reports on cultural issues, a rundown of public meetings and local and regional events, with weather updates, and more about and for the community, made mostly through volunteers in the community through WGXC. The Catskill Makers Syndicate produce the "Better Weather" for the show. Gloria and Arielle host the "Las Brujas Bilingues" segment every Wednesday afternoon. Philip Grant and Tom Roe bring you the weekly WGXC Congressional Report, with reports about the representatives and candidates of New York's 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st Congressional Districts. Interview segments from Justin Maiman from his "Ginger Radio Hour" are often heard on this show, as are movie updates from Jenny Ghetti and Amanda Lees and their "Dim The Lights" program. Tune in for the "Food Segment" from Tepper B.T. on the second Monday of the month. "Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson ValleyThe Ag Report is produced by Brendan Donegan and covers local farmers. The Month Ahead at Cornell Cooperative Extension with Deven Connolly" previews agriculture-related events. There is also The Month Ahead with Chosen Family Zine" from Mike Amari; an event organizer for Opus 40, Basilica, and others; and Liam Singer; the owner of The Avalon Lounge in Catskill, NY and a member of Wave Farm's Board of Directors. Interviews by hosts of the "WGXC Morning Show" also get played back here occasionally. Some reports come from our partner station, WOOC-LP in Troy, out of The Sanctuary for Independent Media. Tom Roe also cuts up local and national news with songs and sounds for the show. The show begins each day with local headlines, weather, and previews of community events. Also tune in for national headlines from the Public News Service on WGXC. Sometimes national, state, or local press conferences, meetings, or events are also broadcast live here. WGXC is always looking for contributors who have an interesting idea for a recurring segment on either the "WGXC Morning Show" or the "WGXC Afternoon Show." Email your idea to info@wgxc.org.
