Film: Wander, Wonder, Wilderness 09/20/14 To 09/21/14
Interactive documentary project Wander, Wonder, Wilderness explores the relationships between humans, community, and nature—and the ways that green spaces serve as an antidote to our de-natured lives. Participants are invited to visit Boston’s natural spaces, create content including text, images, and sound, and share it with future visitors via an interactive website and app.
 
First Fridays: Fashion Fusion 10/03/14
Join Boston's most chic for a night of fashion, music, cocktails, and dancing where art and style collide.
 
Kyle Abraham / Abraham.In.Motion 10/10/14 To 10/12/14
2013 MacArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham is one of the most celebrated young choreographers performing today. His sensual and provocative company, Abraham.In.Motion, performs the Boston premiere of When the Wolves Came In, a repertory program comprising several new works inspired by We Insist! Max Roach’s Freedom Now Suite, including Hallowed, a new solo work set to a series of moving spiritual hymns, and The Gettin', a new ensemble work created in collaboration with Grammy Award–winning jazz musician Robert Glasper and world-renowned visual artist Glenn Ligon.
 
Film: Born to Fly 10/18/14
Born to Fly takes us on an exhilarating journey driven by Elizabeth Streb’s radical movement aspirations: to walk on walls, dive through glass, move so fast you disappear—and fly.
 
Film: The Notorious Mr. Bout 10/19/14
The latest film from Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer co-director Maxim Pozdorovkin continues to explore Russian outlaws. Viktor Bout—an entrepreneur, aviation magnate, and arms smuggler dubbed the “merchant of death” and played by Nicolas Cage in Lord of War—may be the world’s most famous arms dealer. The Notorious Mr. Bout portrays a life much mythologized but little understood.
 
The Measure of All Things 10/23/14 To 10/23/14
Loosely inspired by the popular Guinness Book of Records, this charming “live documentary” weaves together portraits of record-holding people, places, and things. Director Sam Green developed the signature style following the success of his Oscar-nominated documentary The Weather Underground, drawing from old travelogues, Benshi tradition, and TED talks. A meditation on fate, time, and the outer contours of human experience, The Measure of All Things screens with in-person narration and a live soundtrack by indie chamber group yMusic.
 
WORDLESS! 10/26/14 To 10/26/14
Art Spiegelman radically changed the public perception of comics with his Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece MAUS, earning the designation “father of the graphic novel.” In WORDLESS!—a genre-bending performance he calls a “hybrid slide talk, standup routine, academic lecture, and full-scale concert by Philip Johnston”—he takes viewers on a punchy personal tour of wordless novels by early-20th-century masters Frans Masereel, Lynd Ward, and Milt Gross. Accompanied by Johnston’s score of “rollicking, klezmer-inflected, vaudeville jazz” (Paris Review), WORDLESS! also features “Sharing Thought,” a new work Spiegelman drew specifically for the project.
 
Wot? No Fish! 10/31/14 To 11/02/14
In 2009 British playwright Danny Braverman inherited an unlikely family treasure: more than 50 years’ worth of weekly wage packets, each small brown envelope featuring a drawing Braverman’s great-uncle Ab Solomans made for his wife, Celie. Sweet and often self-deprecating, these drawings dating from 1926 to 1982 document the everyday activities, absurdities, and ups and downs of their shared life—and capture a moment in social history. With gentle direction from Nick Philippou, Braverman shapes Ab’s unusual chronicle into a simple but engrossing one-man show that Guardian theater critic Lyn Gardner called “one of the best shows I’ve seen in Edinburgh this summer, indeed one of the most touching I’ve seen all year.”
 
First Fridays: Hooked & Twisted 11/07/14
Celebrate the opening of the ICA’s major fall exhibition, Fiber: Sculpture 1960–present, featuring pioneering art works made out of everyday materials like yarn, rope, and thread. Take a tour, make your own fiber-inspired creation with local artists, and cut a rug on the dance floor with Boston’s best DJs.
 
JACK Quartet 11/08/14
The acclaimed JACK Quartet returns to the ICA with the Boston premiere of Georg Friedrich Haas’s third string quartet, “In iij. Noct,” a composition acclaimed and notorious for its unusual staging in complete darkness. The musicians perform the work from memory, positioned around the audience and guided by sonic cues embedded in the score. The piece is composed of several different segments Haas calls “situations”; players determine their sequence, and how many times each is played, on the spot. There will be no late seating allowed for this performance.
 
Film-making 101 11/16/14
Learn the basics of how to put together a film, including deciding on concept, choosing content, editing, adding sound and special effects. Each pair will complete a short piece by the end of the class. This class is for students ages 8 and older with an adult. Different topics will be explored at each class. Each registered pair MUST bring a flash/thumb drive with them on the day of the workshop. Scholarships are available for families at Boston Public Schools. For scholarship information, contact Kathleen Lomatoski: klomatoski@icaboston.org at least 3 weeks prior to program.
 
Ronald K Brown \ Evidence 11/21/14 To 11/22/14
Ronald K. Brown and his company, Evidence, explore dance idioms from across the African diaspora, mixing Cuban, Caribbean, West African, and modern American dance forms to create high-energy works that joyously blend complex rhythms with a deep but down-to-earth spirituality.
 
The Long Count / The Long Game 12/11/14 To 12/12/14
Matthew Ritchie concludes his 18-month residency at the ICA with this multimedia stage production about the beginning of time. Inspired by the “hero twins” of the Mayan book of creation Popol Vuh, the show presents a mythical song cycle of a capella vocals, layered sound, and subtle, scintillating rock.
 
Mark Morris Dance Group, Off-Peak 01/21/15 To 01/25/15
Mark Morris returns to the ICA for the first time since 2007! Beloved for his inventive, uniquely musical, and contagiously joyful dances, the Brooklyn-based choreographer will present four works: Italian Concerto, A Wooden Tree, the passionate Jenn and Spencer, and Words.

Shantala Shivalingappa 02/27/15 To 02/28/15
Perhaps best known for her work with Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wüppertal, Shantala Shivalingappa is also one of the world’s leading experts in South Indian Kuchipudi, a narrative classical dance form. Expect an evening of storytelling, surprising rhythms, and quicksilver movement in a format seldom seen in Boston.
 
Moses(es) 03/27/15 To 03/29/15
Reggie Wilson returns to the ICA with his Brooklyn-based Fist and Heel Performance Group. An evening-length exploration of “how we lead and why we follow,” Moses(es) draws from influences including Zora Neale Hurston’s Moses, Man of the Mountain; Wilson’s studies of Monotheism, African cultures, and fractal geometry; and trips to Israel, Egypt, Turkey, and Mali.
 
Miwa Matreyek 04/17/15 To 04/18/15
A newcomer to Boston, LA-based multimedia artist Miwa Matreyek combines animation, video installation, and performance for one-of-a-kind experiences that have appeared at international art centers and festivals including Sundance Film Festival. These two pieces combine stunningly lovely imagery with inventive movement and shadow play for works that are,as she says, “at once semi-scientific (like flipping through a children’s encyclopedia), emotional, and dream-like, rich in surrealism, metaphor, and fantasy.”
