Weyes Blood 09/14/17
Active in underground music since 2006, singer-songwriter Natalie Mering has released four records as Weyes Blood. The first thing you notice about 'Front Row Seat to Earth,' the latest album and Mering's third for Mexican Summer, is its closeness. The music is immediate and warm with intimate feeling. But these are not typical love songs or protest songs; they are poignant riddles that celebrate the ambiguity of love.
Dance UP 09/22/17 To 09/23/17
Dance UP features six of the most promising and skilled dance makers in New England today, bringing some of the best hip-hop, tap, and contemporary dance to the stage.
Zola Jesus 10/01/17
For over a decade, Nika Roza Danilova has been recording music as Zola Jesus. She’s been on Sacred Bones Records for most of that time, and Okovi marks her reunion with the label. Fittingly, the 11 electronics-driven songs on Okovi share musical DNA with her early work on Sacred Bones. The music was written in pure catharsis, and as a result, the sonics are heavy, dark, and exploratory. In addition to the contributions of Danilova’s longtime live bandmate Alex DeGroot, producer/musician WIFE, cellist/noise-maker Shannon Kennedy from Pedestrian Deposit, and percussionist Ted Byrnes all helped build Okovi’s textural universe. With Okovi, Zola Jesus has crafted a profound meditation on loss and reconciliation that stands tall alongside the major works of its genre. The album peaks of tragedy with great wisdom and clarity. Its songs plumb dark depths, but they reflect light as well. Opening set by John Wiese.
First Fridays: Stylin' 10/06/17
In a nod to Mark Dion's exploratory exhibition on view at the ICA, get your urban adventure on with a museum scavenger hunt, art making activities, drinks, dancing, and more.

Arditti Quartet 10/22/17
"The world's pre-eminent contemporary music quartet" (The Guardian), the acclaimed Arditti Quartet returns to the ICA in collaboration with the Boston University Center for New Music. Founded in 1974 by Irvine Arditti, the quartet's concerts and albums of the 20th- and 21st- century music have been praised for their technical expertise and spirited interpretations. At the ICA, the Arditti Quartet will perform a concert of prominent 21st-century female composers.
Anna Myer and Dancers 11/10/17 To 11/11/17
Renowned Boston choreographer Anna Myer melds the movements of modern dance with the foundations of hip-hop into fresh and original movements that link a record-spinning DJ to Bach. The varied musical approaches created an emotionally powerful performance that explores both the disconnection and the connection we experience around ever-changing cultural differences in American that we always in motion, stretching boundaries. The company's nine dancers will be accompanied by a violist and a master DJ from Trend Stream Entertainment to present a world premiere work.
Lars Jan: The Institute of Memory (TIMe) 11/17/17 To 11/18/17
Called "incendiary with hope..." (Los Angeles Magazine), The Institute of Memory (TIMe) is a multimedia performance about how the future of remembering is currently changing. Two men hunt each other as a kinetic light sculpture hovers and cuts through the air, signaling keystrokes from a hacked 1950s typewriter. Featuring archival wire-tap transcriptions, communist spy missives, and MRI brain scans, TIMe conjures a portrait of director Lars Jan's enigmatic father -- a Cold War operative whose story exhibits how the future of privacy looks dangerously like the darkest era of its past.

Emily Haines + The Soft Skeleton 12/03/17
It’s time: Emily Haines is back with Choir of the Mind, the Metric singer’s first release as her Soft Skeleton solo project in a decade.

Ten years before that, she released Cut in Half and Also Double under her own name.

Compagnie Herve Koubi 2018 01/12/18 To 01/13/18
After selling out its stunning performance last year, Compagnie Herve Koubi returns with hits highly physical, fluid work that combines hip-hop, capoeira, and contemporary dance with powerful Sufi imagery. The company of French Algerian and African male dancers performs the breathtaking Ce que le jour doit a la nuit (What the Day Owes the Night), returns on Friday, and Saturday's program features the Boston premiere of Les nuits barbares ou les premiers matins du monde (The Barbarian Nights or the First Dawns of the World), an awe-inspiring new work that explores the historical mix of countless cultures and religions that make up a universal Mediterranean ethos.
Okwui Okpokwasili: Poor People's TV Room 03/09/18 To 03/10/18
Bessie Award–winning artist Okwui Okpokwasili and director-designer Peter Born use an interdisciplinary approach to examine gender, culture, and identity in the lives of four women. Poor People’s TV Room recovers buried histories and forgotten stories of women’s resistance movements and collective action in Nigeria. This exploration was set in motion by two historical incidents: the Women’s War of 1929, a resistance movement against British colonial powers, and the Boko Haram kidnappings of more than 300 girls in 2014, which launched the Bring Back Our Girls movement. Through choreography, song, text, and film, Okpokwasili and Born, along with a multigenerational cast of women, craft a performance of haunting intensity and visceral beauty. Poor People’s TV Room plays out like a fever dream, a potent reflection on history’s erasure of female resistance.
