FM Cultural Calendar | Starting Saturday, March 8, 2014

Verbal jabs fly in Nina Raine's stirring new play about Billy, a deaf twenty-something who is adept at lipreading the brash discourse of his hearing family. It's tough to get a word in edgewise around the dinner table, but when Billy falls for Sylvia, a woman who's losing her hearing, everyone is forced to learn a lesson about listening. Stuart Carden directs.

Ballet du Grand Theatre de Geneve
Directed by Philippe Cohen, the Geneva Ballet is known around the world for its exquisite dancers and exciting artistic collaborations. This presentation will also feature two major emerging choreographers: Andonis Foniadakis and Ken Ossola. Glory, choreographed by Foniadakis, allows the dancers' bodies to come together in various modes of symbiosis, either fluid or tense, expansive or minimalistic, which demonstrates the mastery and quality of Handel's flamboyant music. The hypnotic quality of Sed Lux Permanet, choreographed by Ossola, and its sculpted shadow play enhance the delicate nature of bodies wreathed by the sensitive, ethereal sweetness of Faure's Requiem.
