THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S IMPACT ON THE ECONOMIC, POLITICAL AND REGULATORY OUTLOOK FOR LATIN AMERICA
Image result for brazilcham


Join Us on February 27, 2017Time: 4:00 PM to 6:15 PMLocation: Ropes & Gray LLP, New York, New York
As Latin America pivots away from populism in the face of weak commodity prices, slower economic growth and constrained budgets, the potential convergence of interests and enhanced cooperation between the United States and the region has been upended by the election of Donald Trump. What will be the impact of the new administration on U.S.-Mexico bilateral relations, including potential renegotiations of NAFTA? As important, what will be the disparate impacts of a Trump administration on other key economies in the region?

The recent political shifts across the Americas have been connected, in part, to the escalating importance of corruption concerns globally – Lava Jato (Brazil), the Panama Papers, FIFA and Unaoil –with a surge of investigative activity implicating Latin America in particular. Heightened and increasingly decentralized enforcement activity, stronger anti-corruption legal frameworks enacted across the region, cross-border enforcement by regulators and a new generation of investigative journalists are altering the compliance landscape. The old ways of doing business in Latin America are being subjected to scrutiny and accountability. Is this the new normal? What’s next for Latin America in terms of regulatory enforcement?
Please join a select group of leading practitioners from the legal, compliance, political risk and investigations sectors to discuss these and other topics implicating Latin America in 2017.

Exhibition Overview


Lygia Pape: A Multitude of Forms is the first monographic exhibition in the United States devoted to Brazilian artist Lygia Pape (1927–2004). A critical figure in the development of Brazilian modern art, Pape combined geometric abstraction with notions of body, time, and space in unique ways that radically transformed the nature of the art object in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Covering a prolific, unclassifiable career that spanned five decades, this exhibition will examine Pape's extraordinarily rich oeuvre as manifest across varied media—from sculpture, prints, and painting to installation, photography, performance, and film.

Accompanied by a catalogue

The exhibition is made possible by The Daniel and Estrellita Brodsky Foundation and The Garcia Family Foundation.
It is organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art in collaboration with Projeto Lygia Pape.

Become an NYU Skirball Member today!
Circus Now returns to NYU Skirball following two sold-out seasons, with three programs of boundary-pushing contemporary circus featuring the world’s most innovative and inspired companies.
FRIDAY | MARCH 3 
ONLY CHILD AERIAL THEATRE: ASYLUM | USA
ASYLUM, a theatre piece performed largely in the air, examines the forgotten lives of 6 patients and employees in a state mental institution that was shuttered in the 1970s. The story is told using aerial acrobatics, live music, projection, and shadow work and features a song composed for this production by Grammy nominee Sophie B. Hawkins.
  
BOOM CIRCUS | ITALY/US
BOOM! breathes new life into the ancient tradition of masked theater, full of spontaneous improvisations with the public, heart-touching drama, impossible skills and hilarious moments of sheer humanity. Peter Sweet and David Poznanter portray a cast of 6 characters who put on an entire circus, complete with slackrope, Cyr Wheel, juggling and live music. Family friendly, indoor/outdoor.

SATURDAY | MARCH 4

RACEHORSE COMPANY: DISCO 3000 | FINLAND
Their physical and raw contemporary circus performances are based on aesthetics of chaos, humour and surprise. A Jeunes Talentes Cirque Europe laureate 2010 and Best Performance winner 2013 at the International Theatre and Street Arts Festival in Valladolid Spain, Race Horse Company approaches circus without questioning, leaving philosophy to the spectators. Their upcoming work 'Disco 3000' looks at the superstar culture of modern performance art and laughs at the phenomenon through acrobatic clownery. The irreverent and dark-hued performance is infused with black humor and thrills the audience with razor sharp circus skills.

ALMANAC: LEAPS OF FAITH | USA
Philadelphia’s genre-defying Almanac Dance Circus Theatre presents Leaps of Faith and Other Mistakes an absurd and intimate tapestry of sublime human idiocy, isolationist seafarer cults, and the kinds of people that devote their lives to becoming acrobats. Four hobbyists find each other alone in a world of weirdos, and push themselves to be “exceptional in every moment.” As they purify themselves and adopt an all-white uniform, their trusty sofa becomes a portal for exploration and they set out on the high-seas to leave the world of fast-food and normal people behind. But all is not as they imagined it would be, and the audience is left contemplating what we do when we find ourselves lost at sea.


SUNDAY | MARCH 5 
NACHO FLORES: TESSERACT | FRANCE
After 10 years of work on the tight wire, Nacho Flores turns fully towards balancing on wooden cubes, a new technique devised by Nacho after three years of intensive research. A circus technique hitherto unknown, that makes us enjoy its visual quality, while maintaining the audience in maximum tension with the impossible balancing. The show takes us into a world where both the objects and the actor have to constantly fight with gravity. A real attack on Newton. If Newton had seen the show it would have taken him 10 more years to arrive at his theory (unless a cube would have fallen on his head). Tesseract gives a sense to the purest meaning of circus arts: to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Presented in association with the Tilt Kids Festival, a production of the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
