Wavelengths: Mas Ysa 08/08/14
The project of composer Thomas Arsenault, Mas Ysa combines love songs, ecstatic pop, field recordings, and techno into mournful but danceable folk. Peripatetic Montreal native Arsenault studied composition at Oberlin and lived in Saõ Paulo and San Francisco before landing in Brooklyn, where he built a recording studio and worked with choreographer Rashaun Mitchell. Mas Ysa tours widely and recently released a melancholy debut EP, recorded after Arsenault relocated to Woodstock, New York.

Wavelengths: Hooray For Earth 08/22/14
Hooray for Earth emerged in Boston in 2005, finding a following before relocating to New York. Widely praised, their full-length debut True Loves accomplishes the unlikely trick, exemplified by 1990s bands like Depeche Mode and Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark, of infusing synth pop with just enough darkness to undercut its sweetness but retain a victorious, infectious optimism. Tickets on-sale online & over the phone until 3pm day of event, walk-up after 6pm. 6:30pm doors open, 7:30pm music begins. Rain or shine.

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.
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.
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.
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.
