Cion: Requiem of Ravel’s Boléro by Vuyani Dance Theatre
Gregory Maqoma, one of South Africa’s most celebrated artists, returns to MASS MoCA with Cion: Requiem of Ravel’s Boléro. Carried by the transformative singing of an African choir, the work weaves a narrative of greed, power, and the pain of mourning with a moving live score interrogating Ravel’s music through South African vocal traditions. A co-presentation at MASS MoCA.
Deep Blue Sea: Bill T. Jones | Diller Scofidio + Renfro | Peter Nigrini
Deep Blue Sea is a culmination of years of work by the iconic Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award-winning choreographer Bill T. Jones. This work-in-progress performance follows an artist residency that will transform MASS MoCA’s largest venue, the Hunter Center. A meditation on the nature of finding community in this confusing era of ours, the work will eventually incorporate a cast of 100 performers.
