This silver and enamel opium box has Chinese poetry enameled on the sides. Around the box it reads, “Abode of the mountain resting on a cloud / A fresh rain passed over this lonely mountain, and the weather toward evening changed into autumn / Through repose become non-desiring: thus to grow no old is the way of Taoist Immortals. Written in kui-wei.” (kui-wei indicates the date). Object: Feng Hua, Opium Box, 1883, silver and enamel.

"The Globe and WBUR went so far as to name Mala as one of the best plays of 2016...Lopez sees the play as 'a record of my failures as a caregiver. There’s a mythology around this. We think we will be the perfect daughters and fulfill our aging parents’ needs with grace and courage. In fact, I failed over and over again in ways that are hilarious, dramatic, and sometimes even horrible. It’s quite a shift when you become the parent and your parent becomes the child. That’s what this play tries to capture.'" Huntington Theatre Company's Mala is at the Calderwood Pavilon at the BCA until February 4!

    Melinda Lopez' "Mala," About Caring For Aging Parents, Returns To The Stage
    "The sandwich generation" refers to those individuals who serve as parents to their children and caregivers to their aging parents. In today's world, where people tend to have children later, there are more and more of us. Playwright and performer Melinda Lopez was one of them.

At a time when immigration policy is at the forefront of our national politics, Palaver Strings seeks to humanize the conversation with "Seeking Sanctuary" in the Cyclorama February 9-11. "Seeking Sanctuary" is much more than a classical concert. Palaver Strings is working with members of the community—through workshops with Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center - BCNC, the Cape Verdean Adult Daycare Center, and the Irish International Immigrant Center—to develop a program that shares the words and music of Boston's immigrants. This is a multi-disciplinary show that features classical performances, spoken word, visual arts, and projections, exploring what it means for Boston to be a Sanctuary City. Tickets are just $15, purchase at the link

Ten large Flemish tapestries line the walls of the Tapestry Room, depicting episodes from the lives of the ancient Persian king Cyrus the Great and the biblical patriarch Abraham. In her typical eclectic fashion, Isabella intermingled the two tapestry cycles and hung them in an order known only to her. You can tell the two cycles apart by looking at the top of each scene: the Abraham tapestries have a Latin inscription (shown at the center of this image), while the Cyrus tapestries do not (tapestry at left of image).
