  • Bedlam Theater's Hamlet
    7:30pm - 9:00pm
    Flynn Center
    Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. New York’s Bedlam Theater frames Shakespeare’s famously untamable tragedy with fresh verve and ferocity. Committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience—reconfigured during intermission—Bedlam bring its viewers into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of theater. In this meditation on consciousness, ritual, and free will, active environment and storytelling become paramount. The result is a kinetic experience of shared empathy that the New York Times calls “a level of insight that is usually arrived at only through years of close reading and exploratory performance.”

    Flynn Center for the Performing Arts
    When musician Scott Kettner looks at a map, he sees a direct line that connects the rivers of northeastern Brazil to the parishes of New Orleans and the streets of Brooklyn. A master percussionist, bandleader, producer, and songwriter, Kettner is the guiding force behind Nation Beat, a band whose teeming, vibrant rhythms find common ground in the primal maracatu rhythm of Brazil’s northeastern region, the Big Easy’s funky, hypnotic second-line and strolling Mardi Gras Indians, and the unfettered freedom of big-city downtown jazz.

    10:00am - 11:15am
    Flynn Center for the Performing Arts
    By any definition, music moves. Melody, rhythm, and harmony all change, shift, and develop. When an orchestra plays for us, we may notice more than one kind of movement. On the outside, we can hear sounds move as the musicians change their pitches, rhythms, and dynamics. We can see the musicians’ bodies move as they play. On the inside, we may feel our emotions moving and changing in response to the music we hear. Sometimes music might even create a sense of physical movement as sounds become heavier or lighter, rise up or tumble down. Through the Link Up repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating interactive performance with a professional orchestra, we will discover how the orchestra moves.

  • Alison Bechdel's Vermont: A Queer Regionalism
    12:00pm - 1:30pm
    In April 2017, Alison Bechdel was named Vermont's Cartoonist Laureate, an honor that raises questions about the significance of Vermont in her work. This talk retraces representations of Vermont in Dykes to Watch Out For, a 2009 graphic essay on the state, and her most recent memoir, Are You My Mother? It places Bechdel's work in the context of American literary regionalism, with its tensions between the particular and the universal, and considers how they inform her ongoing concern with queer identities.

    January 30 – May 20, 2018 East Gallery In the spring of 2018, the Fleming Museum of Art presents an exhibition of the work of Alison Bechdel, spanning her illustrious, decades-long career. A renowned cartoonist and graphic memoirist who lives in Bolton, Vermont, Bechdel is a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant winner, and the third Cartoonist Laureate of Vermont—a position unique to the state. Her pioneering comic strip about the lives of a group of lesbian friends, Dykes to Watch Out For, ran from 1983 to 2008 and was syndicated in over fifty alternative papers, including Vermont’s Seven Days, which recently published new Dykes strips by Bechdel focused on current political events. The exhibition explores Bechdel’s work as a writer, an artist, and an archivist of the self, someone who constantly mines and shares her own experiences as a way to communicate something vitally human: the quest for love, acceptance, community, and social justice.

  • Jessica Lang Dance's Thousand Yard Stare
    8:00pm - 9:45pm
    Flynn Center
    Conceptually and visually astounding, Thousand Yard Stare is an homage to the aftershocks of war imbued with a spectrum of emotion and physicality. To develop her dancers’ movements, choreographer Jessica Lang draws upon conversations with veterans and therapists working with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Military Stress Disorder. The company explores modes of fear, camaraderie, friendship, and love set to the adagio movement of Beethoven’s String Quartet No.15, a musical argument between hope and despair composed in the throes of near-fatal illness. The Long Island-based company honors the postmodern tradition of Merce Cunningham and Lucinda Childs while incorporating contemporary narratives.

  • Self-Confessed! The Inappropriately Intimate Comics of Alison Bechdel
    12:00am - 12:00am
    Fleming Museum
    January 30 – May 20, 2018 East Gallery In the spring of 2018, the Fleming Museum of Art presents an exhibition of the work of Alison Bechdel, spanning her illustrious, decades-long career. A renowned cartoonist and graphic memoirist who lives in Bolton, Vermont, Bechdel is a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant winner, and the third Cartoonist Laureate of Vermont—a position unique to the state. Her pioneering comic strip about the lives of a group of lesbian friends, Dykes to Watch Out For, ran from 1983 to 2008 and was syndicated in over fifty alternative papers, including Vermont’s Seven Days, which recently published new Dykes strips by Bechdel focused on current political events. The exhibition explores Bechdel’s work as a writer, an artist, and an archivist of the self, someone who constantly mines and shares her own experiences as a way to communicate something vitally human: the quest for love, acceptance, community, and social justice.

  • William Shakespeare's Othello
    12:00pm - 1:30pm
    Flynn Center
    Othello is a celebrated general returning home from the wars, but his dark skin and foreign origin inspire hatred from several people, especially the man he trusts most: Iago. As Iago twists Othello’s love for his wife, Desdemona, everyone becomes pawns in Iago’s devious plots. This classic tale of identity, bigotry, and deceit is examined with contemporary clarity by National Players, combining Shakespeare’s language with modern clothing to transform the drama into a powerful story for America today.

  • Cabaret
    8:00pm - 10:00pm
    Flynn Center
    “Divinely, dangerously decadent.” – New York Times In here, “Life is beautiful.” Directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Spectre), Cabaret features a brilliant story and score colliding at the macabre intersection of tragedy and humor. In 1931 Berlin, under the threat of Nazism, American cabaret singer Sally Bowles meets British university student Brian Roberts. When decadent playboy Maximilian von Heune enters the picture, a love triangle ensues against the collapse of the Weimer Republic, ultimately telling the tale of following your heart while the world loses its way. Celebrating its 50th anniversary season, the award-winning Roundabout Theatre Company invites audiences to leave their troubles outside. After all, “Life is a cabaret, old chum.” https://content.yudu.com/libraryHtml/A42xzp/FlynnCenter201718Sea/reader.html?page=14
