Over the past century, few entertain- ers have achieved the legendary sta- tus of William H. Cosby Jr. His suc- cesses span five decades and virtu- ally all media, remarkable accomplish- ments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Phflly project. In the 1960s, his stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling com- edy albums, which went on to win eight Gold records, five Platinum records and five Grammy Awards. His role on TV's I Spy made him the first African-American to co-star in a dra- matic series, breaking television's ra- cial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards. In the 1980s, he again rocked the television world with The Cosby Show, a gentle, whimsical and hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom (and rescued NBC). With hit movies like Uptown Saturday Night and best-selling books like Fatherhood, Bill Cosby is quite sim- ply a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people's hearts.

The company has performed in every modern dance festival throughout the country and has collaborated with leading Chinese artists across genres includ- ing theatre, experimental music, film, visual arts and installation. TAO Dance Theater has been featured in performances, choreography and teaching residencies and festivals worldwide. The company has brought modern dance all over the world, including rural locations that had never before seen a modern dance performance. PROGRAM 4': '4' fea- tures a foursome navigating both internal and external spaces in constant synchronized motion and never touching. The work is a con- tinuation of the choreographer's minimalist experimentation that explores the potential of the human body as a visual element devoid of story-telling or representation. '5': In '5,' which premiered in Amsterdam in 2013, the dancers do engage in physical contact, in fact they move in an indistinguishable kaleidoscopic mass of limbs and light, never dispers- ing even for a moment. "It is easy to see why the choreographer and co- founder Tao Ye has captured atten- tion as a radical new presence on the country's burgeoning contemporary dance scene." -- The Times (UK}. Directed by Swedish-ltalian Erik Gandini, Videocracy is a documentary film which focuses on the power of television in Italy. The point of view of the documen- tary is that the wide influence of television under three term Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been quite negative on Italian culture and politics. And since Berlusconi owns most of the television media in Italy, the film depicts how television fortified his power. It is an adult film and not for suitable for children. Videocracy , in Italian with English subtitles, will be shown on Saturday morning, February ist, at 10:30 am (Sharp) at the North End Branch Library, 25 Parmenter Street, Boston. At 10:15 am caffe and biscotti will be served. The film is free and open to the public. Weather advisory: If the library is open, the film will be shown. Library 617-227-8135.
