CITI PERFORMING ARTS CENTER WANG 270 Tremont Street, Boston, MA (617) 482-9393 ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATER -- May I-4. 2014. Alvin Alley American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Alley and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance. The Alley company has gone on to perform for an esti- mated 25 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents -- as well as millions more through television broadcasts. In 2008, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the Company as "a vital American cultural ambassador to the world," one that celebrates the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preser- vation and enrichment of the Ameri- can modern dance heritage. When Mr. Alley began creating dances, he drew upon his "blood memories" of Texas, the blues, spirituals and gos- pel as inspiration, which resulted in the creation of his most popular and critically acclaimed work, Revelations. Although he created 79 ballets over his lifetime, Mr. Alley maintained that his company was not exclusively a repository for his own work. Today, the Company continues Mr. Alley's mission by presenting important works of the past and commissioning new ones. In all, more than 235 works by over 90 choreographers are part of the Alley company's repertory. Before his untimely death in 1989, Alvin Alley designated Judith Jamison as his successor, and over the next 21 years, she brought the Company to unprecedented success. Ms. Jamison, in turn, personally selected Robert Battle to succeed her in 2011, and The New York Times declared he =has injected the com- pany with new life." PEABODY MUSEUM OF ARCHAEOLOGY AND ETHNOLOGY HARVARD UNIVERSITY 11 Divinity Ave., Cambridge, MA 617-496-1027 www.Peabody.Harvard.Edu/ Calendar MURALS OF THE AMERICAS Now through December 31, 2014. Throughout time and around the world, people have adorned the walls of their homes, palaces, tombs, temples, and government buildings with painted scenes and designs. From cave paintings; the Neolithic shrines of t,atalhfiyfik, Turkey; or the ceilings of the Sistine Chapel, to the contemporary works of Diego Rlvera or graffiti art, artists have transformed blank architectural canvases into engaging, evocative works of art, through the application of color, pat- tern, and figures. While murals may serve as simple decoration, they are often highly symbolic, making visible a people's religious, poLitical, and cul- tural beliefs, as well as their histories and values. Storied Walls: Murals of the Americas explores the spectacu- lar wall paintings from the Hopi vil- lage klvas of Awatovi in Arizona; the Maya murals of San Bartolo and Bonampak in Guatemala and Mexico, respectively; and the Moche huacas of northern Peru. The artists and artisans who adomed these walls left stunning visual accounts of some of the most significant and enduring stories of their times -- stories that insist upon being read, even now, centuries after their creation. The original art works remain for the most part in situ. Storied Walls uses the photographs and drawings of archaeologists, models, and frag- ments of original murals to examine the meanings and social uses of mu- rals within the Pueblo, Maya, and Moche cultures; the history of their discoveries and investigations by affiliates of the Peabody Museum and others; and ongoing efforts to preserve and restore these fragile painted surfaces.
