Normally the coming season would be filled with a diverse array of live performances by music, theater and dance artists. But these are not normal times. We are adapting to the current circumstances and looking forward to the day when audiences and artists can return to our theaters and concert halls and once again engage in that singular co-creative experience that is live performance.
In the meantime, we are at work assembling a program of unique performances and dialogues to share with you over the coming months. So, please join our email list to receive announcements of upcoming events.
- Robert A. Richter '82, Director of Arts Programming
Created and Performed by SITI Company & STREB Extreme Action
World Premiere Performances Took Place at The Alexander Kasser Theater September 24-30, 2019
Two titans of avant-garde performance—director Anne Bogart and choreographer Elizabeth Streb—join forces to take on works of Obie Award–winning rebel playwright Charles Mee in an original production co-produced by PEAK Performances. In FALLING & LOVING, six actors from Bogart’s company and six of Streb’s action heroes storm the stage and launch into the air with the aid of a Guck Machine, an enormous contraption conceived by Streb that features rotating rings and buckets armed to continually release materials into the stratosphere. Artists, ideas, and objects collide in this radical new production.
Join us for a free fully produced one-hour concert with the Boston Brass. With over 35 years of international touring behind them, Boston Brass offers a terrific, artistically entertaining “something-for-everyone” program featuring familiar classical works to popular jazz standards, all delivered with the ensemble’s signature audience interaction and charming rapport. The ensemble's lively repartee, touched with humor and personality, bridges the ocean of classical formality to delight audiences in an evening of great music and boisterous fun. The philosophy of Boston Brass is to provide audiences with a wide selection of musical styles in unique arrangements, provided in a friendly and fun atmosphere.
The link to this virtual concert will be provided a week prior to the event. Please join our email list to receive the link and information about upcoming arts events and performances. In addition to the concert, Boston Brass has created a 30-minute educational video entitled “Rewired,” that explores the benefits of getting back to basics when rehearsing as an individual or ensemble. The concert and educational video are part of the Boston Brass’s Arts Across America: Community, Together initiative.
