Upcoming Shows Performance Film Talks
Faye Driscoll 10/08/15 To 10/10/15
In this first installment of her Thank You for Coming trilogy, five performers (along with Driscoll and composer Michael Kiley) pass through ever-morphing states of physical entanglements and scenes of distorted familiarity with physical rigor and humor, creating a constantly reimagined group experience. Intimately staged in the round, Driscoll creates a heightened reality of observation, invitation, and interdependence. Audience and performers increasingly find themselves becoming one as a beautiful and shared identity emerges. The second part of the trilogy was in development at the ICA this past summer and will be presented in 2016.
Doug Varone & Dancers 10/16/15 To 10/17/15
Known for its expansive vision, versatility, and technical prowess, Doug Varone and Dancers create kinetically thrilling dances that reflect the complexity of the human spirit. From the smallest gesture to full-throttled bursts of movement. Varone's work can take your breath away. The company will perform the Boston premiere of ReComposed, inspired by American abstract atrist Joan Mitchell's pastel drawings and set to Max Richter's newly constructed version of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, along with other works.

When 17-year-old Moni meets his pretty, fun-loving cousin, Shelli, he is smitten. Unfortunately, so is his more worldly best friend Giorgio. Their teenage love triangle plays out against the Nazis’ invasion into Greece and Bulgaria, with dire consequence looming
BJFF: Censored Voices 11/08/15
Only days after Israel’s Six-Day War in 1967, famed writer Amoz Oz sat down with soldiers and recorded their fresh accounts of their war experiences, including his own. For years these tapes were censored by the Israeli military. Today, almost 50 years later, the soldiers, now gray-haired, listen to their own testimonies for the first time, on camera. Censored Voices brings forth a history that challenges the heroic stories of this period with which we are familiar.
BJFF: Those People 11/08/15

As Charlie faces the new realities of adulthood and he must also face feelings he’s repressed for years.
John Zorn's: Simulacrum 11/13/15
Called the most extreme organ trio ever, Simulacrum is yet another wild new offering from composer and alchemist John Zorn, who continues to explore new worlds and new ensembles into his sixth decade. With dramatic through-composed pieces (meaning pieces in which each stanza takes on a new style) that unfold with a cinematic logic, this genre-bending music defies classification, touching upon metal, jazz, minimalism, atonality, noise, and more. Passionately performed by an unusual all-star trio of John Medeski on organ, Matt Hollenberg on guitar and Kenny Grohwoski on drums, this powerful and fascinating music highlights the MENTAL in experimental!
Nan Goldin: I Remember Your Face 11/14/15
Like Goldin's photographs, Nan Goldin: I Remember Your Face is at once gritty, intimate, and exceptionally cool. When Massachusetts native Nan Goldin made her debut in the 1970s she was one of the first photographers to turn her camera on herself and the people closest to her. In Goldin’s case this was a “family” of bohemians — artists, club kids, drug users, and transvestites. Now, forty years later, the film follows her as she meets old friends and lovers, revealing personal stories about her life as an artist.
BJFF: Do You Believe In Love? 11/14/15

The Bang Group: Nut/Cracked 12/18/15 To 12/20/15
Nut/Cracked—The Bang Group’s beloved, witty response to The Nutcracker—has delighted audiences for more than a decade. Nut/Cracked takes its inspiration from all corners of the dance canon, from tap riffs to en pointe ballet, by way of bubble wrap, disco, and Chinese take-out noodles (consumed en pointe!). Choreographer David Parker finds beauty in the ridiculous, waltzing us through many incarnations of Tchaikovsky’s score, including versions by Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller, as well as the traditional orchestral suite. You’ll never watch The Nutcracker in quite the same way again!

Trajal Harrell 03/25/16 To 03/26/16
When Trajal Harrell first posed his provocative question of what would happen if vogue dancers from Harlem had come downtown to mash up with the post-moderns at Judson Church in the 1960s, who knew the answer would lead to Greek tragedy. In Antigone Sr. (L), the fifth installment of Harrell’s ongoing series Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church (ICA audiences may remember the previous installment (M)imosa), the pioneering choreographer questions how different vogueing and the theater of antiquity might be, reimagining notions of gender, class, sexuality, and citizenship
a canary torsi: Court/Garden 04/08/16 To 04/09/16
A spectacle in three acts, choreographer Yanira Castro’s Court/Garden takes as its inspiration the imperial ballets of Louis XIV’s court, the spectatorship of the proscenium stage, and the presentation of video feeds. Each act is staged within a specific audience/performer relationship, shifting the experience to ask, Who is the court? Who will be king for a day? Performed by Castro’s group a canary torsi, Court/Garden evokes cultural, social, and political frames of experience with an operatic, spectacle-driven vocabulary reflecting how power functions in contemporary theatrical images from the fashion runway to the creation of cultural icons.
