Monica Bill Barnes & Company - Happy Hour

Monica Bill Barnes & Company - Happy Hour

Bring on the cheese puffs! This interactive experience thrusts you into that modern American affair, the office party—complete with drinks, karaoke and clueless dudes.

Ever felt like the most awkward person at a party? Not at this party: that role is covered by dancers Monica Bill Barnes and Elisa Clark, dressed in men's suits and steeped in ridiculous overconfidence. While you sip and socialize as at a typical office function, they swagger in and execute increasingly competitive dance numbers in an attempt to impress the ladies. No one makes better fun of mildly toxic masculinity than these two women. Choreographed by Barnes and performed by Barnes, Clark, and Robbie Saenz de Viteri, this hilarious, cathartic riff on gender roles and vulnerability has been performed everywhere from a barn in upstate New York to a villa in Italy.

Barnes founded MBB&CO in 1997 with the mission to celebrate individuality, humor, and the innate theatricality of everyday life. Other shows include The Museum Workout, in which the performers lead a choreographed exercise routine in an art museum; One Night Only (Running As Long As We Can), which announces dance performance play by play like sports; and Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host, where they turn radio stories into dance. In addition to Barnes, Clark and Creative Producing Director Saenz de Viteri, the company includes Set/Costume Designer Kelly Hanson and Lighting Designer Jane Cox. Together, this team creates the most unlikely experiences for every kind of audience.

Sankofa Danzafro - The City of Others

Sankofa Danzafro - The City of Others

Sankofa reaches deep into the urban experiences of black Colombians and pulls out a vibrant new work of dance theater.

Through movement vignettes, The City of Others unpacks the racial undercurrents of Colombia, a country home to Latin America’s second largest population of people of African descent. Witness the dreams, tensions and resistance in the Afro-Colombian dance and music of this powerhouse company. Drawing from capoeira, contemporary dance, hip-hop and African forms, Sankofa creates on stage a city in which everyone matters.

Founded by Rafael Palacios in 1997 on the Pacific coast of Colombia, Sankofa means, “to return to the root,” an African philosophy that proposes that the past is a keyhole through which to view the present. Palacios told Boston’s Fjord Review that the company’s mission “is to question the overall knowledge [and] to build a voice of self-awareness, which will allow us to reveal the ‘epistemologías’ of the African diaspora in the world. ... The City of Others is based on my own experiences and the dancers’ experiences with regard to racism in Colombia and the struggles to resist and therefore debilitate it.”

Mashrou' Leila

Mashrou' Leila

These Lebanese rockers have something to say — with rousing, electro-pop anthems that tackle LGBT rights, race, religion and modern Arabic identity.

With guitar, bass, drums, violin and the smoldering vocals of lead singer Hamed Sinno — who is openly gay in a region where that can provoke persecution and worse — the group mixes rock and Arabic music. Founded 10 years ago by students at American Beirut University, Mashrou’ Leila challenges the status quo in the Middle East and busts Arab stereotypes in the rest of the world. Born in 2008 out of a late night/early morning jam session at the American University of Beirut, Mashrou' Leila (whose name roughly translates to Overnight Project) fill their live performances with some of the most bittersweet ballads and raucous anthems you're likely to hear. The band's music works on two fronts: tackling subjects that are considered taboo in the Arab world and breaking the Arab image out of its orientalist mold. Their lyrics, in Arabic, are outspoken: “My life spent with rights mortgaged off to your sentiments / My history erased from our books like they were yours to claim,” Sinno sings in their song Tayf (Ghost), a solemn but defiant tribute to a Beirut gay bar that was shut down by Lebanese authorities in 2013.

Jon Batiste and Stay Human

Jon Batiste and Stay Human

Grammy nominee Jon Batiste is a globally celebrated musician, educator, bandleader and television personality whose musical skill, artistic vision and exuberant charisma have earned him the nickname of “crown prince of jazz.” In his role as the bandleader and musical director for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Batiste shares his inclusive brand of “social music” with the world each night. Now he brings that energizing sound to the Hop, accompanied by his sizzling band, Stay Human.

A proud native of Kenner, Louisiana, Batiste comes from a family of musicians; he played drums and percussion with the Batiste Brothers Band as a kid, and he released his debut album came out at the age of 17, while still a student at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts. His follow-up album came while he was a student at the Juilliard School in New York City, where he would eventually meet the members of his band Stay Human. From there, Batiste went on to play in some of the most prestigious concert halls in the world, and alongside some of the biggest names in pop and jazz (Billy Joel and Wynton Marsalis among them). Though his reputation is global, his artistic philosophy has always been one of one-on-one connection. Batiste is a firm believer in the power of music to uplift humanity.

St. Lawrence String Quartet

St. Lawrence String Quartet

Returning to the Hop to celebrate their 30th year, the St. Lawrence String Quartet has earned its place among the world’s most compelling string quartets for its intellectually and emotionally charged performances. The ensemble will serve up commissioned works by John Adams and Osvaldo Golijov, sandwiched between Haydn quartets. The New Yorker writes "no other North American quartet plays ... with more intelligence, expressivity, and force."

Established in Toronto in 1989, the SLSQ quickly earned acclaim at top international chamber music competitions and was soon playing hundreds of concerts per year worldwide. The group established an ongoing residency at Spoleto Festival USA and made prize-winning recordings for EMI of music by Schumann, Tchaikovsky and Golijov, earning two Grammy nominations and a host of other prizes. Ensemble-in-residence at Stanford University since 1998, the SLSQ is at the forefront of intellectual life on campus, directing the music department's chamber music program and collaborating across disciplines, including with the Schools of Law, Medicine, Business and Education. The quartet frequently performs at Stanford Live, hosts an annual chamber music seminar, and runs the Emerging String Quartet Program through which they mentor the next generation of young quartets.

Carla Bley with the Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble

Carla Bley with the Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble

In the ’50s, Carla Bley dropped out of high school, headed for New York, and took a job as a cigarette girl at the jazz club Birdland so she could soak up the music. At 82, the legendary composer, pianist and NEA Jazz Master still tenaciously pursues beautiful and interesting sound. In an event sure to go down in Dartmouth music history, the all-student Barbary Coast opens with a set of Bley’s unforgettable big-band compositions. Then Bley will take the stage joined by British saxophonist Andy Sheppard and the revered jazz bassist Steve Swallow.

For six-plus decades, Bley has been a pioneer in jazz. Inspired by the work of Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, and Erik Satie, she first made her mark in the 1960s, penning tunes that were recorded by Gary Burton, Jimmy Giuffre and Charlie Haden. Her landmark 1971 triple album jazz-rock opera Escalator Over the Hill, featuring artists ranging from Linda Ronstadt and Jack Bruce to Gato Barbieri and John McLaughlin, cemented her reputation for stylistic diversity and restless creativity. Later, she and bassist Charlie Haden co-created the seminal Liberation Orchestra, for which she wrote thrilling arrangements. With a remarkable body of work stretching across dozens of albums, Bley was recognized as a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master in 2015, one year before turning eighty.

Isango Ensemble - The Magic Flute

Isango Ensemble - The Magic Flute

Isango, internationally known for transporting European classics into a South African setting, fuses the opera’s original story with a Tsonga folktale also involving a magic flute. The two dozen performers—mostly local to Cape Town—dance, play rollicking melodies, and trill Mozart’s arias in this acclaimed rendering of Impempe Yomlingo (“magic flute” in the South African language of Xhosa).

Founded in 2000 by Director Mark Dornford-May and singer and actress Pauline Malefane, Isango fluently moves between African and European music, theater and storytelling. As the Los Angeles Times wrote, “The Isango Ensemble, one of the world's most unusual, interesting and important theater and opera companies, doesn't distinguish between African theater and European opera. Nor does the company… acknowledge barriers between African myth and European, African ritual and European, African music and European.” Inspired by Masonic rites, the story of The Magic Flute has stunning similarities with traditions of the Tsonga of South Africa. Papageno (Mozart's bird catcher), the Queen of the Night, Sarastro's spiritualist tribe, the magic flute, the trial of fire and water are just a few of the Flute elements found in timeless African folk tales.

Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra

Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra

Time-travel to a Jewish ghetto in 17th-century Italy with America’s foremost early music ensemble.

In that time and place, Jewish violinist and composer Salamone Rossi bridged two worlds, entertaining the nobles in their salons and bringing Baroque Italian melodies into the ghetto and synagogue. PBO is joined by soprano Sherezade Panthaki, an international early-music star, for this presentation of Rossi’s beautiful and poignant sacred and secular music, enhanced by projected images and sparkling commentary by Italian Jewish Scholar Francesco Spagnolo and PBO’s famously witty music director Nicholas McGegan. Enjoy this special program on the eve of McGegan’s retirement from the San Francisco-based PBO, which under his direction has become recognized as America’s leading historically informed ensemble.

FLIP Fabrique - Blizzard

Let it snow! Part of the vibrant nouveau cirque scene of our neighbors to the North, FLIP Fabrique is a young troupe at the peak of their talents as professional circus performers. Seamlessly blending storytelling, theatricality, and fabulous athletic feats, they play with a subject Canadians know well: winter! Live music underscores the brilliant visual effects, making for a madcap, poetic journey through the season.
