Bright Minded: Live with Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus continues her new Instagram variety show this week with a fresh list of guests. Billy Ray Cyrus, Noah Cyrus and Stassi Schroder will join Cyrus Tuesday. And next up, Reese Witherspoon, Hilary Duff, Bebe Rexha and Dua Lipa will take the digital stage in an episode titled “Women’s Wednesday.” Each program will run for an hour Monday through Friday, with the stream set to begin at 2:30 p.m. EST.

New York Live Arts

In the wake of COVID-19 cancellations, New York Live Arts launched a new streaming program to help fill the void. Packed with videos drawn from the expansive Live Arts archive, the series will feature a limited run of weekly releases. First up is a trio of filmed events: a 1994 performance of “Still/Here”; a conversation between Oliver Sacks, Bill T. Jones and Lawrence Weschler; and the 2018 world premiere of “Lock ‘Em Up.” The next batch of films will be revealed later this week.

Conrad Tao

Pianist Conrad Tao will stream a solo concert from his apartment Tuesday, March 24. The performance, which starts at 7:30 p.m., appears as part of the 92Y’s new slate of livestreams. Tao will play Frederic Rzewski’s “The People United Will Never Be Defeated!,” which is composed of 36 variations on a Chilean protest song. The 92Y describes the “boundary-busting” program as an “anthem of unity.”

The films of Gary Hustwit

Documentarian Gary Hustwit is streaming a new film each week for free. The series debuted with “Helvetica,” Hustwit’s feature-length documentary about typography, graphic design and visual culture. The film will stream through March 24, after which a new documentary will be released for a limited screening period.
