Performing Arts

2018-2019 Season

Our Fall/Winter 2018 program is centered around music and, in part, explores the depth of the shamisen’s influence on the traditional and contemporary music scene. Spring 2019 features five full-scale productions, filled with traditional puppetry, post-modern theater, and two international dance collaborations — one of which is a world premiere!
