On an empty stage, a house is conjured from thin air. Residents move in, move out, clean up, burn down, sweep under, paint over, fence off and move on — and all the while, they live among the traces of residents present, past and future. Geoff Sobelle's Home is a house party of the greatest proportion, telling the story of a house, and showing what it means to create home.A magical, large-scale spectacle built from the ground up, Home combines dance, illusion, live music, home-spun engineering and an inventive use of audience interaction to compose an experience that asks, where is home? If it is not a place, what is home? Home explores — and explodes — the relationship between "house" and "home," and it invites audiences to think twice about the physical and emotional bonds that connect us."Geoff Sobelle is a true alchemist. He weaves a rich golden glow over each performance, with just the raw materials of illusion, invention, romance and whimsy." - David Dower, ArtsEmersonPuchase Tickets »

Written by Nobel Prize–winning author Albert Camus, staged by leading avant-garde French director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and produced by the celebrated Paris theatre company Théâtre de la Ville, The State of Siege is set to take the country by storm this fall on its first visit to the United States. The rarely staged work, penned in 1948, weaves a tale of paranoia, endurance and political struggle resulting in a dizzying modern metaphor. With a renowned ensemble working on an epic scale, The State of Siege (L'État de siège) explores how art can serve as a way to process – and to resist – human atrocities. What role can art play in the face of peril? Faced with imminent danger, can the human spirit remain focused on the beauty of life? "My stated purpose was to make our murmuring stages resound with the loud cries that have the power to subdue or to free multitudes of men." - Albert CamusPurchase Tickets »STUDENTS, FACULTY & STAFFFREE RUSH TICKETSEmerson students, faculty and staff can get one free ticket to any ArtsEmerson theatre performance, film screening or concert by presenting a valid Emerson College ID at the Box office two hours prior to an event.

KISS

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 15:54:59 EST

When a young, aspirational theatre troupe discovers and performs what they believe is a Syrian soap opera, they come to realize just how much they got wrong. Kiss is a brilliant play-within-a-play that shows how misunderstanding cultural cues can reveal blind spots you never knew you had. Chilean playwright and director Guillermo Calderón brings his masterful sensibility to this intense, tightly wound new production where naiveté can turn out to be the kiss of death.Purchase Tickets »STUDENTS, FACULTY & STAFFFREE RUSH TICKETSEmerson students, faculty and staff can get one free ticket to any ArtsEmerson theatre performance, film screening or concert by presenting a valid Emerson College ID at the Box office two hours prior to an event.

BANGSOKOL: A REQUIEM FOR CAMBODIA

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 15:36:13 EST

 Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia is an extraordinary new composition fusing music, film, voice and movement. It is the first major symphonic work that addresses the traumas that occurred in Cambodia in the late seventies, and is the first collaboration between the Oscar-nominated director Rithy Panh and lauded composer Him Sophy — both survivors of the Khmer Rouge and now at the forefront of Cambodia's cultural renaissance. Anchored in "bangsokol" — a ritual for the dead or soon to be deceased — the performance intertwines traditional Khmer instruments with The Metropolis Ensemble orchestra and the Taipei Philharmonic Chamber Choir. All together, they create something innately Cambodian but relatable to audiences everywhere.Bangsokol is an act of cultural renewal, aiming to return the arts to their place at the heart of Cambodian society.
