Choreographer and performer Akram Khan returns to the White Light Festival with the U.S. premiere of XENOS, which marks his final solo performances as a dancer in a full-length piece. Meaning "stranger" or "foreigner," XENOS conjures up the shell-shocked dreams of a colonial soldier in the First World War. Combining classical Indian kathak and contemporary dance, Khan grapples with personal mythology, otherness, and the lucid reality of a world set aflame. XENOS had its world premiere on February 21, 2018, at the Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens. Khan performed his acclaimed solo DESH at the White Light Festival in 2013, and his company presented Vertical Road at the White Light Festival in 2012.

Joseph Keckler

Recently hailed by the New York Times as a “major vocal talent whose range shatters the conventional boundaries” the “riveting and beautifully absurd” (Huffington Post) singer and writer Joseph Keckler folds mesmerizing storytelling and sharp wit into a rich vocal range spanning over three octaves. He’s performed his work at the Centre Pompidou (with Cabinet Magazine), Miami Art Basel, PEN American Center, and many other international venues, and has been featured on BBC America and WNYC. Keckler recently made his Off-Broadway debut in the critically acclaimed play Preludes at Lincoln Center Theater. He is currently under commission by Beth Morrison Projects and FringeArts/Opera Philadelphia, and is developing various projects in music, art, and television. A collection of his writing, Dragon at the Edge of a Flat World, was published by Turtle Point Press last year. In this performance Keckler will be joined by Matthew Dean Marsh on piano and Dan Bartfield on violin.

Framing Time (World premiere)

Pedja Muzijevic, piano

Cesc Gelabert, choreographer and performer

Morton Feldman, composer

Burke Brown, set and lighting design

Lydia Azzopardi, costume design

Feldman: Triadic Memories for piano solo (1981) 

Framing Time is a quietly thrilling meditation on music, light, and movement centered on Morton Feldman's 1981 solo piano piece, Triadic Memories. For this world premiere production at Baryshnikov Arts Center, Feldman's spare, mystical piano piece—a work the composer described as the "biggest butterfly in captivity"—merges with an intricate color and light interplay, joined by dance and sculptural elements. Vividly rendered by pianist Pedja Muzijevic, the shifting colors and elastic tempos of Feldman's painterly music are transformed into acute, poetic movement by Spanish choreographer and dancer Cesc Gelabert, with set and lighting design by Burke Brown.

 

Baryshnikov Arts Center, Jerome Robbins Theater, 450 W. 37th Street

TICKETS: Available at the Alice Tully Hall and David Geffen Hall Box Offices, by calling CenterCharge 212.721.6500, or visiting WhiteLightFestival.org.

Voices of a People’s History of the United States

This Lincoln Center commission commemorates Howard Zinn’s seminal book, A People’s History of the United States, with music and spoken-word performances that bring to life the extraordinary history of ordinary people in the book: those who built the movements for social justice, ending slavery and Jim Crow, protesting war and the genocide of Native Americans, creating unions and the eight-hour workday, advancing women's rights and gay liberation, and struggling to right the wrongs of the day. Actors, musicians, and spoken-word performers delve into original source materials from the rebels, dissenters, and visionaries of our past—and present. Anthony Arnove, coeditor with Howard Zinn of the Voices of a People's History of the United States anthology and author of the introduction to the new 35th-anniversary edition of A People's History of the United States, narrates. Schedule pending, performers include actors Susan Pourfar, Brian Jones, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Okieriete Onaodowan, musician Zeshan B, and more to be announced.

The Creation

Les Arts Florissants

William Christie, conductor

Sandrine Piau, soprano

Hugo Hymas, tenor

Alex Rosen, bass

Haydn: Die Schöpfung ("The Creation")

Sung in German with English supertitles

Baroque music exponent William Christie, founder of the exceptional period-instrument orchestra and choir Les Arts Florissants, is no less a master of Viennese Classicism. The superlative ensemble and its esteemed director return to the White Light Festival with Haydn's Creation, the triumphal oratorio featuring a trio of archangel soloists and a chorus of jubilant angels. Using text from the Bible and Milton's Paradise Lost, Haydn brilliantly depicts the birth of the universe through the emergence of stormy seas, radiant sky, sprightly fauna, and awestruck humanity. Christie and Les Arts Florissants released a two-disc recording of Haydn's Die Schöpfung on Virgin Classics in 2007. Les Arts Florissants presented a highly praised interpretation of Handel's Theodora in the 2015 White Light Festival and performed Charpentier motets in the 2012 White Light Festival.

This performance is also part of Lincoln Center's Great Performers.

No-No Boy

In this immersive, indie-folk concert, singer-songwriter Julian Saporiti and vocalist Erin Aoyama illuminate the Asian-American experience through song, storytelling, and imagery. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese incarceration camp survivors, his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of the Asian-American experience, Nashville-raised Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs to bring these stories to a broader audience. Alongside Aoyama, a fellow PhD student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at Heart Mountain, Wyoming—one of the 10 Japanese-American concentration camps—No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely hidden in the American consciousness.

 Olivier Award-winning East London company Boy Blue brings the electrifying dance-theater work Blak Whyte Gray to Lincoln Center for its U.S. premiere. Driven by founders Michael "Mikey J" Asante and Kenrick "H2O" Sandy, Boy Blue infuses hip-hop dance with African-inspired grooves to create performances pulsing with physical virtuosity. For Blak Whyte Gray (2017), Boy Blue's first full-length abstract piece, a charged electronic score, bold staging, and powerful imagery call forth a deeply rooted cultural awakening on themes of oppression, identity, and transcendence. The critically acclaimed Blak Whyte Gray was nominated for Best New Dance Production at the 2017 Olivier Awards and for Best Modern Choreography in the 2017 Critics' Circle National Dance Awards.

In Kaija Saariaho's hypnotic chamber opera Only the Sound Remains, based on translations of two Noh plays by Ezra Pound and Ernest Fenollosa and directed by Peter Sellars, a ghost and an angel emerge from a world of light and shadow. Countertenor Philippe Jaroussky gives voice to these supernatural hosts and bass-baritone Davóne Tines embodies their mortal counterparts in this U.S. premiere.

Lincoln Center Moments

Eddie Montalvo Plays Classic Latin Salsa

Bronx-born conguero Eddie Montalvo started keeping time when he was just five years old, eventually backing superstars Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe, Willie Colón, and Johnny Pacheco, and in 1979 he became the youngest member of the Fania All-Stars. Montalvo’s most recent, Grammy-nominated solo album Desde Nueva York a Puerto Rico proves that this rhythm prodigy still brings it. He joins Lincoln Center Moments with his band for an afternoon of classic salsa.

Olga Cerpa y Mestisay

Considered one of the most important contemporary vocalists from the Canary Islands, Olga Cerpa and her six-piece band Mestisay (led by guitarist and composer Pancho Delgado) brings a show full of light, good energy, and Atlantic colors to Lincoln Center. The show features songs from their latest album Jallos, which takes its name from the island word for objects the sea throws to the Canary shores. In this case, the jallos are songs from the Americas and Africa, mixed with the folk-roots music of the Canarian Archipelago.

Combo Chimbita

Drawing on backgrounds in heavy rock, metal, and psychedelic funk and soul, this Colombia-rooted, NYC-based four-piece band gleefully fuses cumbia, ‘70s funaná from Cape Verde, kompa from Haiti, guacharaca, dub, and synth into their own blend of tropical futurism. These first-generation New Yorkers—powerhouse vocalist Carolina Oliveros, synth and bassist Prince of Queens, guitarist Niño Lento, and drummer Dilemastronauta—began experimenting with different traditional musical styles during their late-night residencies at Barbès in Brooklyn. Tonight, they kick off the holiday season at Lincoln Center with a free show at the David Rubenstein Atrium as part of the Lincoln Square BID’s Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square celebration.
