PULLING BACK THE CURTAIN ON THE FALL ARTS SEASON IN ROCHESTER


GUEST COMMENTARY | BY BILL CALA

The complicated path to teacher diversity Bill Cala is former superintendent of the Fairport school district and served as interim superintendent of the Rochester district.

Regarding CITY’s September 30 article on activists’ push for more minority teachers: I strongly support concerned community members seeking the hiring of more teachers of color in the Rochester City School District. When I was interim superintendent in 2007, school board member Cynthia Elliot made this an issue. I publicly supported her position in the media, for which I received notable pushback from a number of sources.

SEPTEMBER 13 - 19, 2017

Context is integral to teaching and learning. Where a child comes from, his or her culture, her neighborhood, her family, and her overall history is a context essential to the relationship that must be created between teacher and student in order to promote healthy academic engagement. A diverse teaching staff brings that context to life with teachers that are from the same cloth as their students. That is not to say that a white teacher cannot care, nurture, and relate to students of color. Nonetheless, the importance of role models who have walked the very personal walk of their students should not be understated. Encouraging the hiring of teachers of color should not be a slam on the current teaching staff, however. Teaching in the city is a difficult and noble job that should be honored, not deprecated, irrespective of the color of the teacher in the classroom. Rochester city teachers are a remarkable group of dedicated, caring, and compassionate individuals working against very formidable odds. Barbara Deane-Williams rightfully deserves credit for hiring a diverse senior administration. This should logically be the first important step in hiring a diverse teaching staff. Who better to screen candidates of color than administrators of color who have been through very similar life experiences? It is the administration’s job to hire and the board’s job to set the policy. If the Rochester Board of Education has made hiring a diverse staff a priority, then it should give the superintendent that charge, hold her to it, and let her do her job. The board’s screening of candidates in executive session is crossing a policy line into the worst kind of micro-managing. The board is not

an administrative body but rather one of policy. Actions such as these are counterproductive and more than subtly send a message of lack of confidence and mistrust. The board gets the final word, however. Its members can either accept the recommendation of the superintendent or reject it. They have every right to scrutinize the entire package presented to them, but they should not be acting in lieu of the superintendent. I am not suggesting minimizing the role of the board. In fact, legislation unique to Rochester was passed in the 90’s that gave the superintendent the power to hire his or her cabinet without board approval. I was opposed to this usurping of the board’s authority then and remain adamantly against it today. The board should be the final say when it comes to matters of hiring professional staff. But where are teachers of any race coming from? It doesn’t make a difference if those going into the profession are black, brown, Asian, or white, the numbers of college students going into teaching are at an all-time low. Teacher preparation programs from coast to coast have shrunk dramatically. California’s programs are down 53 percent, while New York and Texas are right behind them. The bottom line is that finding a diverse staff in 2017 and beyond will be more difficult than ever as the percentage of candidates of color remains constant in an ever-shrinking anemic pool. While the effort to hire teachers of color should be an important mission of the school district, we must not forget the other important factors that continues on page 8

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Our quest to become a ‘City of the Arts’ Can Rochester be a “City of the Arts”? Should it be? Is it already? Do we even know what a City of the Arts is? A discussion about Rochester and the arts has been brewing for months, spurred in part by the deliberations over Midtown’s Parcel 5. But the issue is much larger than a proposal for a single new building. And fortunately, last week a discussion on the broader issue started to take shape. As City Council member Elaine Spaull puts it: What does it take to be a real City of the Arts? City Council’s Arts and Culture Committee, which Spaull chairs, invited representatives of a variety of local arts organizations to attend a meeting to talk about their individual needs and the needs of the larger arts community. A good number of them showed up – Geva, the Eastman School, Downstairs Cabaret, Rochester City Ballet, the Rochester Latino Theater, the Jazz Festival, The Strong, RBTL, WXXI, and others – and they were just a fraction of Rochester’s deep, diverse arts community. The discussion, which lasted about an hour and a half, was pretty freewheeling, touching on everything from the need for additional performance space for small arts groups to the struggle to attract younger audiences. The big common thread, though, was a plea for help: money and advocacy. And there was a lot of support for strengthening the nonprofit Arts and Cultural Council, which has been on life-support for months but now, fortunately, is rebuilding. In conversations in the days following the meeting, both Eastman School dean Jamal Rossi and Geva artistic director Mark Cuddy agreed: A strong Arts and Cultural Council is crucial. So is local government support, for the Arts and Cultural Council and for the arts as a whole – “not only with words but financially,” Rossi said. Some cities have set up ways to provide regular funding for the arts – requiring 1 percent of publicly funded new construction and development to be set aside for the arts, for instance. Mark Cuddy also brought up another idea raised at the Council committee meeting: an arts master plan. And he referred me to Boston’s 10-year arts and culture master plan, called Boston Creates. Boston’s plan has five “broad goals,” said a Boston Globe report published when Boston Creates was announced last year: “creating ‘fertile ground’ for the arts in Boston, keeping artists in the city, integrating the arts into ‘all aspects of city life,’ collaboration among a variety of institutions,

We’ve said for years that we’re a City of the Arts, and we have all the ingredients to be one.” and promotion of cultural opportunities in historically underserved communities.” Among the initiatives proposed under those broad goals: a percent-for-art program that would use public money to help fund public art; creating affordable housing for low-income artists; increasing city funding for the arts; making space available in underused buildings for small arts groups; and providing funding to boost arts education in public schools. Boston’s non-profit community foundation was partnering with two private foundations to provide grants to small dance and theater companies. Rochester’s arts and artists need similar support. The arts can’t support themselves. We’ve said for years that we’re a City of the Arts, and I think we have the ingredients to be one. Discussing this with me earlier this week, Heidi Zimmer-Meyer, president of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation, said Rochester is fortunate in having a “constellation of unique venues, each with its own personality.” We also have a constellation of unique arts offerings, each with its own personality, drawing its own audience. But to really be a City of the Arts will take more than words, more than buildings, large and small – as important as buildings are. Rochester will have to adopt a philosophy similar to Boston’s – and find the public and private money to make it a reality. Last week’s City Council committee meeting could be a start – if public officials and arts groups are willing to follow through. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Rochester wants Amazon’s HQ-2

Amazon announced its plans to build a second, $5 billion, 50,000-employee headquarters, and Rochester business leaders told the megacompany that they’d like to court it. Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce CEO Bob Duffy sent a letter to Amazon President and CEO Jeff Bezos, pointing him to some promotional materials on the Greater Rochester and Finger Lakes regions. He also said the community plans to respond to the company’s request for proposals, which has an October 19 deadline. Rochester will face plenty of competition, as communities across the country are chasing after Amazon.

Divinity school now a landmark

The city’s Preservation Board and Planning Commission approved designating much of the nearly 24-acre Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School campus as a city landmark. The designation means that the exterior of most of the buildings on the site and the landscape will need the Preservation Board’s approval before any alterations

are made. A portion of the campus where a new three-story building will be constructed is exempt from the designation. Part of the new building will house the divinity school. The sale of CRCDS to Top Capital of New York hasn’t been completed, but the Planning and Zoning decisions should allow the sale to move forward.

DEC releases new swan plan

The state Department of Environmental Conservation released a third draft of its controversial mute swan management plan. Previous drafts came under fire because they allowed for lethal methods of controlling the invasive bird’s Upstate populations. The new draft emphasizes so-called non-lethal methods such as capture of wild birds and placement in a facility or destruction of unhatched eggs, but says lethal methods of population control will be used when non-lethal methods aren’t practical or timely. The department is holding hearings on the draft (http://www.dec.ny.gov/ animals/7076.html), including one at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 3, at the Braddock Bay Pavilion, 199 East Manitou Road, Hilton.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

A schools-Strong partnership? Officials at The Strong National Museum of Play and Rochester school board President Van White are in discussions to explore possible partnerships between the museum and some city schools. The early discussions have involved tapping the museum’s expertise to show teachers how to use play to enrich instruction, White says. The partnership would be between The Strong and district schools that are already in educational partnership relationships: East High School and the University of Rochester and School 19 and SUNY Geneseo, White says.

“I’ve been to museums all over the country, and The Strong National Museum of Play is at the very top,” White says. “It’s an incredible experience for children and adults, and we should be very, very proud that Rochester has this.” The partnership with The Strong would start with teacher training and development and with giving students greater access to the museum. But the relationship with The Strong could expand into something larger, White says. “They see themselves as part of the educational process,” White says.

And the museum is indeed already involved in education; it operates its own pre-school program. White says that the initial talks have focused on East High and School 19 because the existing educational partnerships with those schools allow for some flexibility and experimentation. Those partnerships give the district “an opportunity to try different things,” White says. “We’re trying to create incubators of success with these schools that can be shared with all of our schools.” Considerable research has documented that there are educational benefits to play, White notes.

IMMIGRATION | BY JEREMY MOULE

DACA reversal has a human cost Griselda Trejo has built herself a good life, one she wants to keep. The 24-year-old Sodus resident is married; has two children, one 2 and the other 7; and has a job making things for the Navy, such as headsets. But she fears that she won’t have this life much longer. Trejo’s parents brought her to the US from Mexico when she was 5, and they were all undocumented immigrants. She hasn’t been back to Mexico since. She loves the United States, considers it her home, and has been able to live here openly and without fear of deportation since 2012, when she applied for and received Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) authorization from the federal government. Former President Barack Obama started DACA that year through an executive order. But President Donald Trump and members of his cabinet have announced that they’re stopping the program. The Trump administration promises an orderly end and says it will honor current authorizations, which last two years. But it won’t grant new ones, and it won’t renew existing authorizations once they expire, with one very limited exception.

Looking for legal help?

Area residents who have a DACA authorization and need legal help can call the Legal Aid Society of Rochester’s intake line at (585) 232-4090. Trejo expects that she’ll have to stop working. And she won’t be able to drive her 7-year-old son to school anymore,

a routine she cherishes because he’s had several surgeries “It’s just taking a part of our life away, that’s what they’re doing,” Trejo said during an interview last week. Trejo is one of an estimated 800,000 people who are currently living in the US and working or studying under DACA. There’s no precise estimate for the number living in the Rochester region, but there are around 42,000 living in New York.

New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio says there are 30,000 in New York City alone, which leaves roughly 12,000 across the rest of New York State. Leaders across New York vowed to resist the Trump administration’s decision. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has filed a lawsuit against it.

LGBTQ | BY TIM MACALUSO

The Gay Alliance is coming out The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley has a distinguished history of education, advocacy, and service to the LGBTQ community in the Rochester area. It represents the strength and resilience of the LGBTQ community, and it has often been held up as a symbol of the city’s progressive values. For more than 40 years, there’s never been any question about the organization’s guiding principles or what it stands for because the name said it all. But next month the Gay Alliance is changing its name to Out Alliance, a move some in the LGBTQ community will applaud and others may find controversial. The name change is part of a much larger evolution for the organization that began about two years ago, says Scott Fearing, executive director. A decision to move from the Gay Alliance’s secluded East Main Street office in the Auditorium Theatre building to a visible, street-level location on College Avenue has in some ways mirrored the coming out of a different organization, he says. This one, however, doesn’t necessarily identify as gay. The term is dated, Fearing says. “By changing our name, I think we’re acknowledging what’s happening today,” Fearing says, “and we’re charting our future.” During the last two years, the Gay Alliance has experienced unprecedented growth, much of it a result of its new location. It’s less hidden and more open and participatory, says Fearing. The organization gave more than 200 educational workshops last year, including many out of state. And it’s gone from being a predominantly grant-funded non-profit to one that is about 95 percent non-grant funded, while building an impressive endowment. And as many as 800 people went through its doors each month in 2016, a 1,400 percent increase from its old location, Fearing says. Many of those people are young, and they have a different set of expectations, he says. “In our youth group, almost all of our participants have GSAs [Gay-Straight Alliance] clubs in their schools,” Fearing says. “Just 10 years ago, most of the youth that participated in our programs were not out at school and were not out to their families. Now most of them are out everywhere.” Fearing and Rowan Collins, the Gay Alliance’s education coordinator, say they’ve learned through focus groups and surveys that many younger people hear the word “gay” and simply don’t connect to it. “They still understood that at the core is this generic aspect of ‘gay’ as an umbrella term, but it felt old-fashioned to them,” Collins says. “And it didn’t really mean acceptance of who they are.” 6 CITY

SEPTEMBER 13 - 19, 2017

Even Collins admits that at one time he had little interest in the Gay Alliance. He first heard about it when he was a sophomore at Nazareth College, he says. A friend who was on the Gay Alliance’s speakers bureau encouraged him to get involved, but Collins says he had trouble getting past the name, specifically the reference to “gay,” because he didn’t think it included him. “I had to be convinced,” Collins says. Collins isn’t alone. Some activists preferred the “LGBTQ” acronym because, they said, “gay” seemed to refer mainly to white men. And by the early 2000’s, “gay” had become the annoying pubescent expression for someone or something that is different and distasteful: an invitation to marginalize or bully. Another reason for the name change is that sexual orientation and gender identity are beginning to be seen more as a spectrum, with fluidity that may change during the course of person’s life, says Fearing. Some of the people the Gay Alliance serves have specific issues that they want to deal with around trans and gender identities. “They would call and say, ‘You’re the Gay Alliance; do you know if there is a trans alliance?’” Fearing says. Currently, the Alliance’s largest support group is for people who identify as transgender or don’t identify with a gender at all. After months of research, including examining the names of nearly all of the other LGBTQ centers around the country, Fearing knew he didn’t want to lose the word “Alliance,” because it remains a crucial part of the organization’s identity. Being out can mean different things to different people, Fearing says. It’s inclusive at every stage of life, he says. “Being out in an authentic way means discovering your truth and to live that truth,” he says. “Whether you’re out as an ally, out as gender variant, or out as a gay man, it’s all about being authentic in your life, how you live, how you present yourself, and how you love. That’s the unifying piece today.” Out Alliance is having a coming-out block party to celebrate the organization’s new name on Wednesday, October 11, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at 100 College Avenue. Though Fearing is optimistic, rebranding a

well-established organization that has strong name recognition is something many marketing experts would advise against. “Eastman Kodak,” for instance, is still a name with value, even with all of the company’s recent troubles. Fearing knows there’s some risk involved with the name change. He doesn’t want to offend the organization’s older and long-time supporters, many of whom are gay men and

lesbians who have an emotional investment in the Gay Alliance. Some of the organization’s staff members have already heard from these older members, who say they are concerned that what they fought so hard for is being forgotten or disrespected. The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley is the oldest continuously operating LGBTQ center in the state and one of the oldest in the country. Similarly, the Empty Closet, which the Gay Alliance publishes, may be the longest-running newspaper of its kind in the country. (The Washington, D.C., Blade began publishing before the Empty Closet, but stopped publishing for a while, Fearing says.)

“There’s no such thing as LGBT life in America, a country even more divided on this front than on others,” Bruni wrote. There’s “LGBT life” in a handful of states: New York, Maryland, California, and Oregon, he wrote. But many of the other states have old antiLGBT laws on the books, and some, like Texas, Kansas, and Mississippi, are actively pursuing more. And employment and housing protections, safety, and equality for LGBT people are not things to expect under the Trump administration, Bruni says. Fearing and Collins wouldn’t argue with Bruni’s point, and they’re hoping to reassure Rochester’s LGBTQ community that the Gay Alliance’s history is being preserved rather than forgotten. Nor do they have any misconceptions about the needs of the broader gay rights movement. “The truth is, the work we’re doing shows that we will not forget about the past,” says Fearing. “History is always a part of the conversation. We remind folks where we’ve been.” But working in a social-justice movement requires having hindsight, insight, and foresight, says Fearing. “I realize that things need to change in order to stay relevant,” he says. “I don’t want us to end up on the dust heap of history as one of those organizations that closed because we couldn’t keep up with the times.” Nowhere is that change more evident than in some of the Alliance’s youth activities. Ten years ago, if parents called the Alliance during one of the group youth activities, asking if their child was there, the Alliance policy was for staff to first ask the young person whether they felt safe talking to the parent. “We never would admit that we knew who they were or whether we knew if that person was here,” Fearing says. In other words, they wouldn’t out them. While there are still many young LGBTQ people being rejected by their families and are homeless, a lot has changed, Fearing says. “We have more moms and dads and grandmas and grandpas volunteering their time to work with us than I have ever seen in any organization,” Fearing says. “Now when we do our dances here, my favorite thing is I stand here on the sidewalk and greet families as they drop off the kids.”

impede learning in cities. One has to look no further than the annual reports by the Children’s Agenda. If we look at kindergarten readiness, prenatal care for mothers, and a host of other health and safety issues for city kids, we get a more complete picture of the gestalt that makes up school success and failure. The research on brain development is strong and convincing. As the Children’s Agenda’s 2016 annual report notes: “75% of brain growth and 85% of intellect and personality are formed before children attend their first day of kindergarten.” We may also wish to question segregated schools in both the city and the suburbs. Should any school district be 90 percent white? Should any district be 90 percent black? Where is the political will to change that? Talk of schools like those in Raleigh and votes supporting such integration efforts are meaningless without action. We have heard this kind of talk for decades. In fact, we are more segregated in 2017 than we were during the riots of the 60’s. Hiring a diverse teaching staff is critically important, as is addressing the socio-economic needs of city children and families. Action, not talk, on ALL fronts is crucial if we expect our kids to succeed.

DACA continues from page 5

which represents the state’s bishops, is vocally encouraging Congress members to reinstate DACA. And University of Rochester President Joel Seligman vowed that it would do everything within its legal powers to support its undocumented students and employees who work or study under DACA. “Our University is immeasurably better and stronger because of its diverse student body,” Seligman said in a published statement. “We are both a global university and the Rochester family where we value and support one another, even under challenging circumstances and uncertainties.” DACA is not an amnesty program, says Wedade Abdallah, immigration program director at the Legal Aid Society of Rochester. It allowed people who came to the US before they were 16, and who have lived in the country continuously since 2007, to work or go to school and to live their lives in the open, Abdallah says. “They’ve been able to live normally – as normally as possible – in the United States without fear of the government deporting them,” Abdallah says. John Ghertner, who works with migrant workers in Wayne County, says that if Trump and Congressional Republicans think rescinding DACA will make its recipients return to their countries of birth, they’re mistaken. “They’re not going to go home, I can promise you that, until they’re forced to by law enforcement,” Ghertner says. “I think the underground economy in this population is gonna grow again.” And like Trejo, many of the DACA recipients have children who, since they were born in the US, are citizens. Those children have a legal right to live here. Ghertner worries about the stress that Trump’s DACA decision will place on families as parents lose their jobs and they’re pushed into poverty. And he worries about the well-being of the children. He expects that children of parents with DACA authorizations will experience dramatic psychological effects, including an increase in depression. In the past when immigration issues have flared up and families have been thrust into uncertainty, he’s seen youth become suicidal. “The rules are changed,” Ghertner says. “But in defense of the system, we knew from Day 1 that this day was possible. Nobody wanted to believe it, but we knew that this was possible, that the next president or Congress could do something to abort this. That doesn’t lessen the blow, obviously, but it is a fact.”

The event will be held at the Brighton Town Park Lodge, 777 Westfall Road. The potluck dinner is at 5:30 p.m., and the talk will begin at 7 p.m. The event is free to RAVS members, and $3 for non-members. Information or help with preparing a dish: 234-8750.

Correcting ourselves In the September 6 article on the Village of Pittsford’s proposed development moratorium, we referred to Wilmorite’s senior vice president of leasing and development. His name is Dennis Wilmot, not Kevin Wilmot.

Roll with it [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY

My first question to John Syouthoum, the owner of Roll’n Yen Thai Fried Ice Cream (656 South Avenue), is “Why is it called ‘fried ice cream’ when it’s not fried?” The housemade ice cream is spread out on a flat surface and then scraped into rolls and placed in a cup — there isn’t a fryer in sight. “Our cold plate is actually an anti-griddle,” he explains. “Instead of getting hot, it freezes. The reason we call it Thai fried ice cream is because Thai people stir-fry everything. We’re basically stir-frying your ice cream.” A machinist by trade, Syouthoum was inspired to replicate the Thai treat in Rochester after visiting Vientiane, Laos, where his family hails from. He researched the correct way to make it, and modified it slightly — the dessert is traditionally made with frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. At Roll’n Yen, ice cream is spread out flat on the cold surface and then a variety of toppings are added in, like fresh fruit, cheesecake bites, or Oreo pieces. The ice cream is then scraped into rolls and topped with a drizzle of sauce or sprinkles and whipped cream — all for $5.55. The ice cream is made in house and comes in the traditional vanilla and

Roll’n Yen is also working on a pumpkin spice ice cream for the fall. This is a family-friendly business — it is ice cream we’re talking about after all.

Koo Koo Boy was ahead of his time. The music was avant-garde, larger-than-life, rock ‘n’ roll calamity. And despite his self-deprecating humor and unique on-stage persona in tighty-whities, Koo Koo Boy was Rochester’s best — if not its only truly new wave artist. There was plenty of garage rock and punk in the late-80’s and early-90’s, but not a lot of new wave. I know I’m gonna get a lot of flack for that statement, but in the words off Koo Koo himself: “I’m a monster, you’re a monster, just let it go.” “Every Freak for Himself,” remastered for a 25th anniversary reissue, is just that: a re-working of Koo Koo Boy’s early-90’s smash album — a cassette only release back then, I believe. The album itself was a re-tooling and capture of the Koo Koo Boy and his band’s intense live show, where he would champion Debbie Harry’s sexified swagger and John Waters’ questionable taste, all wrapped up in a tres cool, girl group happening in underpants. His voice was wonderfully condescending and cool. None of that has been lost here with “Every Freak for Himself” on vinyl for the first time. All of the hits are here, especially the crowd favorites “Pop Friends” and “Vampire Girls.” It serves as a nice reminder for those who were there and the kids now that missed out. Sometimes it feels like I still am. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Candy Isle “Mostly Blankets” Self-released candyisle.bandcamp.com

This is an awesome album of deceptive simplicity. Candy Isle is a dynamic duo made up of Kat Bakrania and Lydia Dake — and not much else. This, their first EP, sparkles like a pristine smile with a dusting of harmonious quirk. Assorted instruments are sprinkled about so sparsely that the Bakrania and Dake twosome sounds virtually a cappella. “Mostly Blankets” is an original treatment of a handful of covers — hence the title — and some of their own compositions that all together put forth an angelic innocence with a touch of humor. The ladies give the minimalist treatment to songs by artists like Fleet Foxes, Jamaican Queens, and Eddie Vedder. It’s lighthearted and fun, and reminds me of Julia Nunes’ post-YouTube stuff.

[ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE

Jimmie Highsmith Jr.’s ninth release, “Indigo Chronicles Chocolate Brown Eyes,” finds the Rochester saxophonist channeling interpretations of love, loss, and life through his instrument. In particular, through an alto sax he calls “Indigo.” “I was a nerdy kid with no friends and no girlfriends,” Highsmith says. “My saxophone was my first girlfriend. My saxophones are like girlfriends to me. The alto sax is named Indigo, and my soprano is named Monique. We definitely have a relationship; my wife understands that.” In order to create what Highsmith wants to say musically, it requires a specific tone

or sound that certain horns present. “This album primarily features Indigo,” he says. “So it’s pretty much a story told musically through Indigo’s eyes. Each horn has its own sound, its own voice. And when you’re trying to catch a certain emotion, the story requires a specific voice and to use the horns appropriately.” Born and raised in Rochester, Highsmith is known the world over, having rubbed elbows and traded licks on stage with artists like Alicia Keys, Victor Wooten, and Wynton Marsalis. And his album “The Anthology of Sound” was nominated for a Grammy. On “Indigo Chronicles Chocolate Brown Eyes,” Highsmith, among other things, addresses the heartbreaking personal loss of two family members: his mother-in-law (“Chocolate Brown Eyes”) and his uncle, Alton (“For Alton”), as well as his dear friend and WDKX radio personality Tony Boler (“Bolertime”). But the album isn’t at all a funeral march. Highsmith is a beguiling talent playing between the spaces of smooth jazz and exploratory bop. It’s not a bumpy ride necessarily, but you better hold on.

Watching this 49-year-old cat squeeze the tears and joy out of his sax (Monique or Indigo) is a thrill. His band — David Labman on keys, drummer Bruce Pitts, and bassist Mark Terranova — is so deep in the pocket you’d half expect them to come off the bandstand wearing a layer of lint. The rhythm section is just that: a giant rhythm section that chugs and plugs as Highsmith releases a smooth, fluttering flurry of notes, sending them on a trip to the moon on gossamer wings. “It’s a symbiotic relationship,” Highsmith says. “We’ve been together about two years now, me and this band. We have a set list most of the time, but we don’t rehearse that much because of our busy schedules. We are so intuitive of one another — ideas and emotions that come out naturally. It’s a collective. It comes down to the drummer: he knows what is going to happen, he knows how I want it to feel and just runs with it.” When Highsmith writes he’s slow to tell the band what he wants; he’s never been a dictator declaring, “I want it my way.” “I have a blueprint, and try to give the guys room to be creative,” he says. “Their input is very important to me. Anything can inspire me, maybe an emotion or a person. It could be a smell. It could be a situation. There’s no one recipe for me when writing a song.” It’s easy to watch Highsmith’s smooth jive on stage, and it makes sense when he lists artists like Chopin, Grover Washington Jr., John Coltrane, Phil Woods, and Herbie Hancock as influences. What isn’t easy to grasp is the fact that this isn’t his first choice. “As much as I like playing music, it is not my preferred career field. If I’d had my choice in life I’d be a climatologist. I’m a big science geek — I love weather patterns — physics in particular. I’m a big nerd. I’m also a walking contradiction. I’m a kid, a black kid, who grew up in the city loving country music. I like rock ‘n’ roll, too. And I’ve got a hidden personality that plays metal bass like Metallica.” With “Indigo Chronicles Chocolate Brown Eyes” hitting the street recently, there will be plenty of opportunities to catch the man live. Not out of town too much these days, though. “I like to be here with my family,” Highsmith says. “I have grandchildren, and now I’m Pop-Pop.”

14 CITY SEPTEMBER 13 - 19, 2017

At the age of 37, composer and lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda is already a recipient of a Pulitzer Prize, three Tony Awards, two Grammys, an Emmy, and a MacArthur Fellowship. He has also been nominated for an Academy Award and was named in Time’s 2016 “Most Influential People in the World” list. But it was three days in April 1999 that started it all. That’s when he performed his inaugural version of “In the Heights” as a sophomore at Wesleyan University. It was a rough version of the show, but the freestyle rap songs and spicy dance numbers were enough to catch the attention of a visionary team who wanted to take it further. “In the Heights” opened on Broadway in

March 2008 and received 13 Tony Award nominations (winning four, including for Best Musical). Nearly a decade later, “In the Heights” is still playing all over the world — and through October 8, it’s onstage in Rochester as Geva Theatre Center’s 201718 season opener. While a musical kickoff is typical for Geva, “In the Heights” is a different breed of musical. Miranda drew from his own biography when he created “In the Heights,” as the story takes place in a block of the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City and features a largely Latinx population. (Miranda grew up in a nearby neighborhood and is primarily of Puerto Rican descent.) Like its initial run, “In the Heights” takes place over the course of three days and follows a group of neighbors through their various trials and struggles one hot, catalytic July weekend. At the center of the narrative is Nina Rosario, who’s just returned from her freshman year at Stanford College in California. She’s the first in her family to go to college, and one of the few on the block to leave the Heights in the continued search of the American Dream.

Melissa Rain Anderson, a Geva affiliate artist who directed last year’s opener “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” directs “In the Heights,” and her talent for highlighting ensemble characters and knack for comedic timing make her an ideal fit for the position. Geva is also partnering with the Rochester Latino Theatre Company — which performed the area’s first production of “In the Heights” in 2014 — for community outreach efforts during the run. Many of Miranda’s creations are known for their diverse casting opportunities, and “In the Heights” was the trailblazer of this trademark — Geva’s version is no different. The cast isn’t large, so even the ensemble members spend a lot of time on stage. The production is an energetic two-and-a-half hours (including a 20-minute intermission), filled with fresh, sexy choreography by Julio Agustin and bright rhythms performed by music director Don Kot and a seven-piece orchestra (which was hidden from the audience, presumably so it wouldn’t interfere with the movement on stage). Touching musical numbers and genuine moments come from leads Mia Pinero (Nina), Chiara Trentalange (Vanessa), and Xavier Cano (Usnavi), but because there were two performances on September 10, the actors may have been tired during the 7 p.m. show. Voices sounded strained, and pitch was inconsistent at times. Even for a perfectly rested actor, these vocal arrangements, compounded with freestyle raps, are difficult. There are many gripping roles, but a few actors stole the show: Alex Swift (who stood in for Alejandro Gomez as Sonny on September 10) embodies the role of Usnavi’s impressionable but good-hearted younger cousin; Sidney Dupont (Benny) injects energy into every scene with his strong vocals and affable character; and Donnie Hammond (Daniela) is the wisecracking salon owner who belts a knockout version of “Carnaval Del Barrio” in act two. The only confusing casting choice is Yassmin Alers, who is far too young to play a convincing Abuela Claudia (though Alers herself is a delightful actor and vocalist). Geva’s season opener defies musical standards: it’s an almost completely nonwhite cast, without ingénue leads, and the choreography highlights many different body types onstage. And because of it, “In the Heights” is an exuberant production with a refreshing cast. And though LinManuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” fame may draw audiences to “In the Heights,” it’s important to remember — and appreciate — which show came first.

If anything is going to make Rochester a “City of the Arts,” with acknowledgement from the wider world for our home-grown offerings, it’s going to be the efforts of the artists and arts organizations themselves, not just building a new theater. Those who are paying attention know these organizing efforts are already underway, and are showing promise. Now celebrating its 86th year, the Print Club of Rochester has been on a recent fast track to relevance outside of the region — in no small part due to the leadership of artist and educator Adam Werth these last few years. The club has been gaining members on a national and international level while still bearing Rochester’s name. Its second annual “Under Pressure” exhibition, hosted again at Rochester Contemporary, features four artists whose work challenges and redefines the concept of contemporary printmaking. The goal of the series is to bring new artists into Rochester who are making 16 CITY SEPTEMBER 13 - 19, 2017

interesting and challenging work, says RoCo Director Bleu Cease. In particular, Michael DeLucia’s work in this year’s installation severely blurs the boundaries between printmaking and sculpture. Some of the New York City-based artist’s work reads as bas-relief graphic design. Two tall panels of plywood, one covered in a faux marble veneer, the other raw, have been carved into by a router attached to a CNC machine. The resulting design — lines that form mechanical elements such as gears — strike a roughly elegant balance and can be considered either the plate to be printed from, like a woodcut, or “prints” in that they can be repeated by the machine. Two cork, fishbowllike “vessels” set on wood stands, the surfaces carved into or printed with lines by the same machine, are more overtly sculptural. DeLucia again employed the CNC machine, this time with a writing tool attached, to create drawings of vessels, some of which he made into negative-object, photographic prints through the use of printed transparencies placed over light-sensitive cyanotype paper. The work of Sean Caulfield, an Alberta, Canada-based artist, reflects the environmental concerns particular to his region. The province is heavily reliant on the oil industry, and Caulfield grew up around the industry, with men in his family who worked in the oil patches. “But at the same time it’s an open, free, rural kind of place,” he says. His art is a fusion of environmental, industrial, biological, and mechanical

elements, resulting in paste-up installations of graphic, traditional wood block prints on thin, Japanese paper. With a ton of wall space left blank around the activity, some of the actual blocks are incorporated into the installation as sculptural elements. The pasted-up vignettes are of hybrid natural and industrial environments: A truncated forest emitting smoke looks eerily like a factory’s stacks, and what might be a bomb shell or a plane’s fuselage rests emits flames that might also be foliage. The forms are effectively deceptive. Caulfield’s installation at RoCo is a variation on a previous installation called “FireDamp” — a term that refers to when gas is released in a mine and explodes. The tone of the work is both ominous and slightly whimsical. “I’m interested in creating a language in my work that fluctuates between kind of absurd and whimsical, maybe even cartoon-like, but at the same time anxious and serious,” he says. “To my mind that’s an interesting device, because a lot of these issues — say around climate and the environment — are polarizing, so having a language that fluctuates is useful.” Rochester-based Nick Ruth’s gorgeous, color-block monoprints of groupings of billboards are a familiar favorite. He’s warmed up the sharp contrast by adding strokes of colored pencil that give texture and depth to a relatively flattened world. There’s something in the big vibrant skies, and exuberantly lonely terrain that bring Ed Ruscha to mind, while Ruth’s prints that feature groupings of disconnected walls seem to allude to Richard Serra’s sculpture work. San Marcos, Texas-based artist Jeffrey Dell’s luminous screenprints are just astoundingly perfect examples of trompe l’oeil. In one particular series, he’s made the print look as though the rainbow-spectrum paper has little windows cut into it, with the paper flaps poking out into 3D space, and overlapping shadows of the flaps cast on the page. But each highly technical, mesmerizing print is just seamlessly layered ink on synthetic Yupo paper. Buffalo-based artist Mizin Shin has completely transformed RoCo’s LAB Space into a graphic exploration of the interdependency of our various energy and food systems. The entire room — walls, ceiling, and floor — has been wall-papered with simple, black and white designs depicting our mechanized modes of extracting resources from livestock and the land. The carefully randomized placement of the paper tiles avoids a strict pattern, and so an elaborate sort of circuit board of systems connects terrain, animals, and machines. And stacked in two corners of the space are paper boxes printed to look like city buildings. The overall impression is of standing, Gulliver-like, on a cartoonish Lilliput.

/ MOVIES 18 CITY SEPTEMBER 13 - 19, 2017

It’s extremely silly, but a lot of fun. Joseph Kahn’s subversive comedy “Bodied” follows a white grad student who becomes an unlikely star on the rap battle circuit. Not all of the humor lands — there are more than a few groan-worthy jokes — but when it hits, it hits hard, becoming a sharp takedown of white privilege and cultural appropriation. As of this writing the film hasn’t been picked up for distribution, but with the enthusiastic response from audiences here, it’s only a matter of time. One of two films that director Sebastián Lelio has in the year’s festival, the excellent “A Fantastic Woman” is about Marina, a transgender woman searching for a path forward after her lover’s unexpected death. A transgender performer has never been nominated for an Oscar, but hopefully that will change this year with Daniela Vega’s luminous performance. (Lelio’s other film is “Disobedience,” starring Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz.) Inspired by the fascinating story of the unconventional life of the creator of Wonder Woman, “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” is smart, sexy, and funny, with three fantastic lead performances from Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, and Bella Heathcote. Angela Robinson’s nimble direction helps overcome the occasional biopic cliché. I rarely cry at movies. I’ve teared up plenty of times, sure, but it takes a lot to really get


me sobbing. So take it as high praise when I say “Lean on Pete” destroyed me. Andrew Haigh’s follow-up to his wildly acclaimed “Weekend” and “45 Years” is a simple story about a boy and his horse, but it grows into so much more. Lead Charlie Plummer is a star. “The Ritual” follows a group of guys who take a hiking trip through the forests of Sweden to honor their fallen comrade and encounter an ancient evil. Coming across like a Nordic spin on “The Blair Witch Project,” it doesn’t break much new ground, but it’s a solid entry in the “terrible things happen to people who go into the woods” genre of horror, with a solid lead performance from Rafe Spall. The second film I viewed centering on the relationship between a man and a horse, Chloé Zhao’s quietly powerful “The Rider” tells the story of a rodeo cowboy recovering from a lifethreatening head injury and figuring out how to live a life if he can no longer do what he loves. Dan Gilroy’s much-anticipated follow-up to “Nightcrawler,” “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” is the optimistic Yin to that movie’s darkly cynical Yang. The film stars Denzel Washington as an idealistic lawyer who finds himself in crisis after the small-time firm he toiled for suddenly shutters its doors. Washington is solid, as expected, and there are some interesting ideas about the compromises involved in activism, but the story meanders so much you might end up frustrated well before you get there. Three of my favorites of the festival will be getting wide releases (and likely Oscar pushes), so I’ll save the good stuff for full reviews closer to release. But “Call Me By Your Name” lived up to my (high) expectations; Frances McDormand deserves all the Oscar attention she’ll no doubt be getting for her performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” And Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” is a swooning fairy tale romance and an ode to classic cinema that feels like pure del Toro. It’s absolutely magical.

Clowning around “It” (R), DIRECTED BY ANDY MUSCHIETTI NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

Professional clowns have been up in arms over the release of “It,” the new film adaptation of Stephen King’s novel about a demonic evil that most frequently takes the form of a clown known as Pennywise. After last year’s sinister clown sightings around the country, they’re not eager for more bad publicity. But their worries made no difference; “It” just had the biggest opening weekend ever for a horror movie. The film follows Bill (Jaeden Lieberher), whose younger brother, Georgie, goes missing — during a terrifying opening sequence, the boy has a run-in with Pennywise and is never heard from again. This prologue immediately sets the film’s tone and establishes a world where bad things can happen to anyone. It’s also the scene where Bill Skarsgård’s performance as the murderous clown is at its most frightening. The film flashes forward a year, and Bill has become obsessed with finding out what happened to his little brother. On his quest for answers, he eventually recruits his best

friends: wise-ass Richie (Finn Wolfhard, “Stranger Things”), skittish Stanley (Wyatt Oleff), and hypochondriac Eddie (Jack Dylan Grazer). The misfit pre-teens have dubbed themselves the “Losers’ Club,” and are perpetually tormented by their school’s pack of vicious bullies. Their daily lives are already hell, so once Pennywise starts stalking them, it’s really just one more thing they have to deal with. Gradually they add a few new members to the group: a sweet-natured new kid named Ben (Jeremy Ray Taylor), the home-schooled Mike (Chosen Jacobs), and the sole girl of the group, Bev (Sophia Lillis). One by one each child has their own encounter with Pennywise, who can shapeshift and appear as whatever it is they fear most, gaining strength from their terror. This allows writer-director Andy Muschietti to load his film with regular jolts and scares, but it also results in a monotonous rhythm that cycles through nearly every kid’s confrontation, one after another. With a bit of research, the group learns that “It” is an evil, predatory entity that has terrorized the small town of Derry, Maine, for centuries, rising every 27 years to feed before sinking back into the sewers to wait. The group decides to band together and try to rid their town of the evil presence for good. There’s plenty of parallels between this story and King’s “Stand By Me” (“The Body” in novella form), another tale of children whose friendship provides a sense of safety and protection as they, in their own ways, confront death. The children’s roles are impeccably cast and marvelously acted — though Lillis delivers the film’s true standout performance. Skarsgård was most recently seen as Charlize Theron’s East Berlin ally in “Atomic Blonde,” and he rips into this role with razor-sharp teeth bared. There’s a bit of Heath Ledger’s Joker to his portrayal, but Skarsgård makes Pennywise his own (and

distinguishes his work from Tim Curry’s iconic portrayal in the 1990 TV-miniseries adaptation. He makes Pennywise into a truly terrifying presence. Muschietti focuses on the horror of childhood as the adolescents start to understand that the world is a dark and scary place where bad things can (and often do) happen, even to children. But the screenplay, credited to Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga (who at one point was attached to direct), and Gary Dauberman, manages to inject more humor than you might expect. There’s also a fear of adulthood, or at least the fear of turning into the kind of adults who surround them. We learn that several of the Losers have terrible home lives; none of the gang has a single positive parental presence. In fact, every adult they encounter in the entire town of Derry ranges in demeanor from indifference to outright toxic. It’s the film’s depiction of the horrors of child abuse that I found most shaking, providing a potent undercurrent to the supernatural horror. I’ve railed on it before, but the overuse of CGI in horror is one of the worst things to happen to the genre. And sadly even an otherwise solid film like “It” isn’t immune. But the makeup design for Pennywise is wonderfully creepy — the decision to have his eyes constantly go askew is a nice, unsettling touch. Claude Paré production design is a marvel throughout. Though the supernatural haunts didn’t always work for me, they certainly did for most of the audience at my screening, and the shrieking and screaming was infectious, providing another a reminder that movies like “It” are best experienced with a crowd. With its mix of scares, heart, and humor, the film demonstrates the difference between a quick fright and something that truly terrifies, burrowing under the skin and lingering on long after the credits have rolled.

Dashing Dutch Dwelling 164 Corwin Road Located at the eastern border of the city near the broad valley of Ellison Park, Browncroft is one of the most distinctive neighborhoods of our city. C J Brown, after decades of success in cultivating fruit trees, began to redevelop the 300 acres of his nursery in 1914 as Browncroft. Brown endowed the neighborhood with a unique landscape character, which can still be seen in the themed groupings of street trees, Chinese wisteria, and custom cast-iron street sign posts. Many of the distinctive homes that line the streets were designed by the popular architects of the day including Gordon and Kaelber, and Leander McCord. This stately Dutch Colonial Revival home, built in c.1916, was owned by Cyril and Marguerite Faucher from 1919-1938. Cyril was the president of Bereza Ironworks and was likely responsible for the many wrought-iron embellishments to the home’s refined symmetrical exterior. A rustic brick path winds toward the elegant iron front porch that stretches the full depth of the house, ending at an exterior stone fireplace. The imposing wood paneled front door gives way to the formal central foyer replete with original molding, crystal and brass light fixtures, and oak floors that carry throughout the home. The foyer bisects the first floor and has a powder room and rear door tucked beneath the grand open staircase. To the left, the large living room is adorned with a broad fireplace, built-in bookcases, and a unique south-facing bay with French doors to the open front veranda. To the right, the

formal dining room is dressed to impress with plentiful molding, a built-in china, original crystal and brass chandelier and sconces, and French doors to the lightfilled sunroom. A former butler’s pantry has been conveniently converted to a first floor laundry and is adjacent to the open kitchen with its plentiful cabinetry, charming breakfast nook, and access to the basement and maid’s stairs. The second floor features four large bedrooms each lit by several of the house’s oversized wood double-hung windows and two shared full bathrooms arranged around the airy central hall with its elaborate builtin linen closet. The master bedroom is enhanced by a former sleeping porch that has been converted into a dressing room. The grand stair continues to the attic with its finished maid’s quarters and huge open storage lit by the many dormers and elegant Palladian window on the front. A large open basement and single-car garage complete the property. This 3,166 square foot National Register-listed home is full of potential and is eligible for 20% NYS Historic Homeowner Rehabilitation Tax Credits. Contact realtor Kimberly MiniellyGraus of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services at 585-746-7263 and make it yours for $264,900. by Christopher Brandt Christopher is a longtime Landmark Society volunteer and blogs about his own historic home at www.myperfectlittlemoneypit.com.
