Thank you to Dance Informa Magazine for the wonderful review of Conference of the Birds! Anikaya Dance Theater will be bringing this stunning production on tour, so please keep an eye on the flock!
Pack your bags for a cosmic journey to an Interstellar Sanctuary. Eight artists imagine a healing and visionary site for contemplating earth’s challenges—particularly climate change—in this immersive multi-disciplinary experience. Some of these artists explore the profundity and darkness of this theme, while others have a more whimsical touch. Some artists focus on the concept of a journey away from earth, while others emphasize what is left here or what may await us elsewhere. Run of the Mills is Saturday, April 21, from 4–10 in the Mills Gallery. Tickets are only $5! Purchase here: http://www.bcaonline.org/performance/run-of-the-mills.html
#TBT to last week when we opened Conference of the Birds, Anikaya Dance Theater's ambitious work that brought together a flock of international dance masters to perform a collaborative work based on the medieval Sufi poem. All photos (c) Liza Voll. Conference of the Birds is supported by a generous Building Bridges 2016–2017 grant for the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art (DDFIA).
This spring, Boston Center for the Arts has set an ambitious goal—to secure 100 donors in 100 days! If just 100 donors give $150 each we will reach our goal of an additional $15,000 for the BCA Annual Fund before June 30. Join us and make your tax-deductible gift to BCA today.

"I love dancing, and seldom are the times when you can share the dance floor with new and old friends under the beautiful urban setting the Cyclorama offers. Most important, it supports my favorite BCA program: the artist residency program. See you on the dance floor!" —Disco Under the Dome Co-Chair Claudia Robaina, Program Manager, Director's Fellows Program, MIT Media Lab Sophisticate. Innovative. Kinetic.

Karen Campbell from The Boston Globe says about Conference of the Birds "See it. It will remind you of the importance of creating connections between cultures, not walls." Conference of the Birds is at the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at The Boston Center For The Arts through Sunday.
"You have to have room to question, to mess things up, to break the rules a little (or a lot).” —The Theatre Offensive Acting Artistic Director Evelyn Francis. For BCA Campus Resident Company The Theater Offensive, #ArtisticRisk has always been about boldly, unapologetically, and unabashedly responding to what the world and our communities need—their first-ever residency program for local #LGBTQ artists is a prime example.
