Wavelengths: Hooray for Earth

MUSIC

Wavelengths: Hooray for Earth

 

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.

¡Bocón! by Lisa Loomer

Apollinaire Theatre Company’s 11th year of offering free bilingual productions on alternating nights in English and Spanish in Chelsea’s Mary O’Malley Park features 2 plays about crossing borders, fear of the Others among us, linguistic slight of hand, and finding one’s voice in the chaos.

¡Bocón!, a fable filled with humor and mysticism and song, tells the story of twelve-year-old Miguel who flees a repressive military regime in Central America for Los Angeles.

A natural storyteller and irrepressible "big mouth" or bocón, Miguel loses his voice when his parents are taken, and he begins a metaphorical journey north to the City of Angels. Along the way he meets up with an unusual traveling companion, La Llorona, the legendary "Weeping Woman" of Mexican and Central American mythology. Through their magical friendship, Miguel finds his voice and the courage to cross the border to a new life.

"Bocón! is written to be understood in both English and Spanish.

"Bocón! is a children's play...but playwright Lisa Loomer offers so much for the adult mind to ponder. It would certainly be a shame to think that you can only see the show if you drag a kid along...the depth of Loomer's writing makes it more of an adult show suitable for the whole family." -Chicago Reader

In Apollinaire summer tradition, the audience will move with the action. Audience members are encouraged to bring blankets and beach chairs, and a picnic to enjoy along with the Boston harbor views.

Invasion! by Jonas Hassen Khemiri

Apollinaire Theatre Company’s 11th year of offering free bilingual productions on alternating nights in English and Spanish in Chelsea’s Mary O’Malley Park features 2 plays about crossing borders, fear of the Others among us, linguistic slight of hand, and finding one’s voice in the chaos.

At once hilarious, disturbing, and poignant, Invasion! centers around a mysterious name: Abulkasem. First encountered in the historical epic “Signora Luna,” Abulkasem becomes the perfect all-purpose word, and the name of a gay Lebanese dancer, a radical feminist Muslim theatre director, an asylum seeking apple-picker, a stuttering telemarketer, and the world’s most sought after potential terrorist. Swedish playwright Khemiri looks at our fear of The Other from an ever shifting kaleidoscopic array of perspectives.

Invasion! was written for The Stockholm City Theatre and played two seasons of sold out performances. Invasion! has been translated and played in theatres in Norway, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, South Korea, and the UK. In the spring of 2011 it opened in New York, winning Khemiri an Obie Award, and the play returned to New York by popular demand for a second run.

"A slyly entertaining comedy with a sharp political edge" -NY Times

"What grows, for better or worse, from the imagination is the ultimate subject of this sometimes brilliant, energetic, and original play...A lot of the writing is uncommonly inspired, hilarious, touching, and surprising." - The New Yorker

"Invasion! is as difficult to pin down as the name Abulkasem in the play, and we are summoned over and over again to look at people and their lives with fresh eyes.”
-Svenska Dagbladet

David Rogers’ Big Bugs

What happens when you recreate the insects all around us on a gargantuan scale using all natural materials? You have Big Bugs.

Sculptor David Rogers creates insects such as 25-foot long ants and dragonflies with 17-foot wingspans using various combinations of whole trees, cut green saplings, dry branches, and other forest materials. All wood is found dead or harvested sustainably. The inherent uniqueness of these materials, their different shapes, colors and textures provide these sculptures with their character, definition and a sense of motion. The effect is a role reversal of dimension and perception.

These over-sized statues were inspired years ago by the sight of a sapling bent over by a winter storm. “It reminded me of a dinosaur’s backbone,” Rogers says, “so I started collecting branches and twigs and fashioned a dinosaur.” The leap to insects was a small one. “Insects play this vital role in a garden but are unnoticed, so I put them on such a large scale that you can’t help but notice them.”

The Big Bugs at Heritage will include: three ants, a dragonfly and a damselfly, an assassin bug, a praying mantis, a spider on a web, a ladybug and a grasshopper, all placed in interesting landscape settings throughout the grounds.

Opening Reception for A Genius For Place: American Landscapes of the Country Place Era

Join us for the opening reception for September's display in the Jones Library atrium and a screening of the documentary Fletcher Steele and Naumkeag, which explores the design of Naumkeag in Stockbridge, one of the seven Country Place-era landscapes featured in the exhibition. Robin Karson, the executive director of LALH and author of the exhibition (and the book of the same title), will give a short talk about the Country Place era in landscape architecture after the screening.

­A Genius for Place: American Landscapes of the Country Place Era is a panel exhibition created by the Library of American Landscape History (LALH). A narrative by landscape historian Robin Karson and photographs by Carol Betsch trace the development of an important movement in American landscape design through seven country estate landscapes designed between 1905 and 1950. LALH, which is based on Amherst, fosters understanding of the fine art of landscape architecture and appreciation for North America’s richly varied landscape heritage through its books, exhibitions, and online resources.

Fletcher Steele and Naumkeag explores the work of landscape architect Fletcher Steele and his client Mabel Choate in creating the new gardens for Naumkeag, the Choate family summer estate in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, between 1926 and 1955.

Adriana Varejao

The ICA presents the first U.S. solo presentation of work by Adriana Varejão, one of the leading voices in contemporary Brazilian art. Varejão’s work mines the history of Brazil referencing the history of art, architectural ruins, Baroque church interiors, Portuguese azulejos (blue and white ceramic tiles), scenes of colonialism, and Brazilian indigenous paganism. The exhibition features a selection of works made from 1993 to the present—including early paintings, floor and wall-based sculptural works, installations, and work from Polvo, a recent series of self-portraits highlighting the spectrum of interracial identity in Brazil. The exhibition traces the artist’s exploration of the effects of colonialism through the lens of anthropophagy, the concept that Brazilian culture was developed through a process of ‘devouring’ and reinterpreting the symbolic and cultural contributions of its colonizers.

Fiber: Sculpture 1960 - Present

Fiber: Sculpture 1960–present is the first exhibition in 40 years to examine the development of abstraction and dimensionality in fiber art from the mid-twentieth century through to the present. Adapting age-old techniques and traditional materials, artists working in fiber manipulate gravity, light, color, mass, and transparency to demonstrate the infinite transformations and iterations of their material. Early pioneers such as Magdalena Abakanowicz, Sheila Hicks, Lenore Tawney, and Claire Zeisler demonstrated a revolutionary redefinition of fiber art in the 1960s and 70s, showcasing radical, non-representational forms. Fiber: Sculpture 1960–present addresses the cultural and critical forces that contributed to the initial efflorescence of the fiber revolution in the mid-century, its contraction in the 1980s, and its recent reclamation by contemporary artists.

Crisscrossing generations, nationalities, processes, and approaches, the exhibition features approximately 50 works by 34 artists—including works by the aforementioned artists alongside Olga de Amaral, Eva Hesse, Ernesto Neto, Rosemarie Trockel, Anne Wilson, and Haegue Yang—that range from small-scale weavings to immersive environments, all made in fiber.

Hear Sergei Rachmaninoff’s stunning a cappella masterpiece in the original Russian. Often called simply the Vespers, Rachmaninoff considered the piece one of his finest compositions. Ethereal, poignant, and beloved around the world, the All-Night Vigil (Vespers), op. 37 was composed during the “golden age” of Russian choral music, when composers like Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, and Rimski-Korsakov were all writing music using texts from the Russian Orthodox liturgy.

Mozart's C Minor Mass

Mozart’s iconic Great Mass in C Minor, K. 427 contrasts in beautiful and surprising ways with Beethoven’s Elegiac Song, op. 118 and Haydn’s Symphony No. 86 in D Minor. The C Minor Mass was unique in its time for the work’s magnificent choruses, sensuous solo movements, and large ensemble. Paired with Mozart’s masterpiece is Beethoven’s brief and tender Elegiac Song—a musical gem often overlooked among Beethoven’s grander works—and Haydn’s sumptuous Symphony No. 86.

Bach's Magnificat and Zelenka's Te Deum

Spend Mother’s Day with Cantata Singers! Hear music by the composer who inspired Cantata Singers to be founded in the first place alongside works by our newest musical muse, Czech Baroque composer Jan Dismas Zelenka. J.S. Bach’s jubilant and beloved Magnificat in D, BWV 243 is paired with the Boston premiere of Zelenka’s profound Te Deum, ZVW 146. According to music Director David Hoose, “both pieces are brilliant in their color and energy. It’s hard to find a piece as vital as Bach’s Magnificat, yet Zelenka’s Te Deum may be right there.”
