Queens Conversations: Creatives Navigate COVID

Queens Conversations

We have been struggling against the coronavirus for over a year now. The necessary procedures we had to adapt to protect ourselves created significant and sometimes undesirable changes in our society and our economy. The impact of the virus on the entertainment industry has been drastic. Performing arts have been deprived of their usual audiences. How have creative artists responded? For this episode, we will speak with several of them to hear about the pandemic's effects on their work and lives. Our guests will be: Eytan Mirsky, Musician; Barbara Elysee, Filmmaker; Adrienne Whaley, Queens Underground; Ariel Polanco, Dancer / Stage Actor; and Phil Cappadora, Astoria Filmmakers Club.
