Who Was Medusa? Did History Get Her Story Wrong? On June 25 & 26, the Nora Theatre Company’s “That’s What She Said” program presents a workshop performance re-envisioning of the Greek myth of Medusa with live actors, aerial dance, shadow puppetry, and music. CW: references to sexual assault According to writers like Ovid, Medusa was a priestess of Athena, who in a classic case of victim-blaming was transformed into the snake-haired monster as punishment for being raped by the god Poseidon in Athena’s temple. Later, Medusa was beheaded by Perseus, son of Zeus.  By weaponizing Medusa’s severed head, Perseus triumphantly turned a sea monster into stone to rescue the damsel Princess Andromeda. With Andromeda taken as his wife, Perseus was then made king. This is a familiar age-old tale of patriarchal glory, but what if the real story was forgotten or suppressed? In the retelling of Medusa Reclaimed, the sexual…

In Dirges Sad Delight

Presented by SoHIP: Society for Historically Informed Performance at St. Anne in the Field

Jun 28, 2022

In Dirges Sad Delight is a rumination on death, on sorrow, on what lies beyond this material veil. The poets and composers of 17th-century England returned time and again to these themes, through both sacred and secular works, examining the purgation of the soul at its passing, and the effects of death upon those still living. In this program, Memento Mori offers works by Dowland, Danyel, Campion, Coprario, and other luminaries of the English Renaissance in a mournful reverie realized by the voice, the lute, and the viol. Experience catharsis and solace as we walk up against the barrier between nature and mortality. Memento Mori: Sarah Coffman, soprano & viola da gamba Charles Iner, lute Masks and proof of vaccination required.

About the Artist The lushness of the orchestration of Lydia Luce's Garden Songs EP is striking on first listen, and fans may hear it as a return to her musical roots. The mystery of why starts to unravel when she explains that she wrote it at an artist retreat on Orcas Island, a tiny destination of some 57 square miles off the coast of Washington state known for vistas of water, forest, rocks, beaches, and blue skies. It was the first writing Luce had done since her 2021 album, Dark River. "It was an opportunity to connect with myself without any pressure because I wasn't writing for a project," Luce explains. "I used the time to reconnect to writing." She found inspiration in the words of Wilco's Jeff…

Miwa’s story of becoming a jazz musician is full of serendipity and happy twists of fate. In the late 1990s the classically-trained artist auditioned for Berklee College of Music on a lark and ended up winning a full scholarship. She arrived at the school from her homeland of Japan in 1997, intending to stay for a year. In 2017, she’s still in Boston, enriching the city’s musical life and serving as one of the most popular professors in the Berklee piano department. Act Naturally, the Yoko Miwa Trio’s major label debut in Japan, came out in 2012 on the JVC Victor Entertainment label and the band toured Japan that same year. “She is one of the best jazz pianists in Japan,” said Yozo Iwanami, Jazz Hihyo Magazine.

“DIDO REIMAGINED”Co-commissioned by Rockport Music, this program starts with early English works by Purcell, Dowland and Locke, and flows toward the famous Lament from Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas. Composed by Melinda Wagner and with a libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann, this unique monodrama will probe a truly compelling character through the concentrated closeness of the chamber music experience.

COMMON GROUND REVISITED

Presented by Huntington Theatre Company at Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA, Wimberly Theatre

May 27 - Jul 03, 2022

This riveting and intricately woven world premiere play brings Boston’s history to life in the 1960s and 70s, culminating in three families’ experiences in court-mandated busing. Diverse in both race and class, what can these families’ experiences tell us about our own time? Especially when Boston Public Schools are more segregated in 2021 than they were in 1974. Common Ground Revisited is inspired by Anthony Lukas’ landmark Pulitzer Prize winning book, which The New York Times praises as an “epic of American city life.” Developed with ArtsEmerson, this unique work comes from Obie Award winners Melia Bensussen and Kirsten Greenidge, reteaming for the first time since their acclaimed Huntington production of Luck of the Irish.

The Orchard Online Experience

Presented by Arlekin Players Theatre at Online/Virtual Space

May 31 - Jul 03, 2022

The Orchard invites us into the fragile world of a family yearning for connection and struggling with the end of their world as they know it. Threatened with foreclosure and the loss of their beloved orchard, they face unstoppable, destructive forces that dismantle their lives like the breaking of a string. The Orchard is a hybrid piece of theater and can be seen in person at Baryshnikov Arts Center (NYC) or online, accessible worldwide. The online experience invites audiences on a journey through a beautifully rendered, three dimensional virtual property that has been abandoned and is in foreclosure. There, audiences can explore and discover magical rooms where they uncover echoes of a past life, now lost, including Chekhov's letters, memories, and ultimately the play, live, in progress at the Baryshnikov Arts Center.
