Francis Poulenc – Figure Humaine
Arvo Pärt – Passio

This concert features iconic works of two of the most compelling and influential composers of the 20th century: Arvo Pärt and Francis Poulenc. The monumental work Passio by Arvo Pärt is a meditative setting of texts from the Passion according to St. John and is considered as the apotheosis of his writing. Poulenc’s masterpiece Figure Humaine, written in Nazi-occupied Paris in 1943 to poems of Paul Éluard, is perhaps the ultimate Poulenc musical statement. Dedicated to Pablo Picasso, in what is known as Poulenc’s most challenging choral work, the piece embodies great suffering and oppression, juxtaposed with the hope for freedom from tyranny.

A Rebel In Venus

8:00 PM20:00

A Rebel In Venus

Premiere if an evening Length Ballet performed by Alma Dance Theater, with an original score by Hope Littwin.

Choreographer Marissa Alma Nick's latest creation,"A Rebel In Venus", shines a light on the powerful (and sometimes discounted) voice of the millennial generation and their response to the current #metoo and #timesup movements. The fresh and vibrant performance enumerates dehumanizing sexual censorships in America today through the lens of sex-positive feminism, and attempts to re-define the iconic goddess figure known as Venus. “A Rebel In Venus” is an extension of the pro-sex movement that marches in SLUT WALKS and screams out PUSSY GRABS BACK. It re-creates a youthful conversation (through dance) about how to view girls and women as fully human, and most importantly: agents of our own sexuality.
