Concert | Latin Grammy-Winning Brazilian Singer


Ranked by Rolling Stone as the third greatest Brazilian singer of all time, Ney Matogrosso came up in the '70s with Secos e Molhados, but his flamboyant stage theatrics, loud costumes, and singular high-pitched countertenor voice have made him one of those distinctly unique artists to come out of Latin America in the 20th century. Recipient of a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Matogrosso will perform in a rare visit to the US. The self-described "pachanga folk" band Francisco El Hombre created their latest album Cxasa Francisco in isolation under the watchful eye of videocameras, livestreaming its production as a pseudo-reality show. Their 2017 song "Triste, Louca ou Ma" was nominated for a Latin Grammy. The showcase also features two artists from the motherland: Lisbon's Fado Bicha, a queer, anti-racist, feminist duo pushing the boundaries of traditional fado and challenging Portugal's political status quo, and DJ set by Surma, a one-woman-band who wields a dozen instruments to accompany an ethereal voice.

Concert | Celebrating Writer and Conductor Greg Tate


Gregory Stephen Ionman Tate (1957-2021) was a giant of Black radical thought and creativity, and a conductor of incandescent, community-driven music. Tate's body of writing as an influential critic would be enough to enshrine him as a cultural icon, but he is equally important to a generation of musicians as both the co-founder of the Black Rock Coalition, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to the complete creative freedom of Black artists; and the creator of Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber, a sprawling, omnivorous, and outrageously accomplished improv collective. Under his co-leadership, BSAC has issued more than 20 releases in its two-decade history, featuring a cavalcade of virtuoso musicians. Tate's sudden passing in December 2021 was a blow to his many loved ones, friends, collaborators, and admirers around the globe. For this homecoming concert, curated and presented with The Tate Family at one of his favorite venues, more than thirty BSAC members will perform in celebration and tribute to one of the most essential voices in the history of 21st Century Avant Groidd music and thought.

Play | Richard III: Shakespeare Drama Outdoors


Tony Award nominee Robert O'Hara (Slave Play, The Public's Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and storytelling genius with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare's most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab arrives with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.
