The Kingdom Choir


e are privileged and honored to present to you a beautiful season of extraordinary performances. Privileged in that, in a time when our world seems at war with itself and the arts have weathered a horrific storm over the last few years, we get to invite you to share in the bounty, joy, and brilliance of a full Quick Center season. Honored in that, in a time where all means of ‘normal’ have shifted, our team has stayed strong, powerful, and has even flourished to present you with a season like no other at the Quick. The season opens with U.S. premieres of representation from the Global South. Performance works presented by our College of Arts & Sciences Senior Fellows in the Arts, nora chipaumire from Zimbabwe, and Brett Bailey from South Africa. Their performances reconstruct theatre as we know it and engage us in vital discussions on race, gender, and the African Diaspora using traditional music, dance, and performance. The Open VISIONS Forum brings critical voices in the sociopolitical landscape, from Frances Haugen talking on ethics in the media, to PBS legend Judy Woodruff, to social activist and daughter of Desmond Tutu, Rev. Tutu, and world-class journalists Bret Stephens and Carl Bernstein. Music lovers make sure you get your tickets early for the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Mariachi Herencia de México with Lupita Infante, Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour with Dee Dee Bridgewater and Kurt Elling, and, straight from the royal wedding, The Kingdom Choir. Dance lovers, the international stars from Israel’s Vertigo Dance return with a work reflecting on community. Line up your families and friends for Cirque Alfonse returning from Montreal with the U.S. premiere of Animal, a wild, wacky day on the farm. In and amongst all this is an incredible OVF: Espresso series, Global Theatre series, virtual programs, classical music, and more. This brochure is your gateway to it all. Put your feet up, page through the bounty, and then purchase your tickets. This year, our gift to you and our greater community, is the accessibility of our season. Members can enjoy tickets to most performances for $20. I am not sure you will find a more accessible ticket price in our state for this caliber of world-class performances and speakers. Membership matters. It invites you in to take ownership and be a part of what we do. Members build our community and enjoy special benefits, ticket prices, and experiences. This year, we’ve simplified the process so our Membership campaign is part of the brochure – as easy as 1, 2, 3, you can select your level of impact, return the enclosed form and envelope, or join online and take part in our season with family and friends. We are excited, privileged, and honored to share this season with you, and look forward to welcoming you to the Quick Center when we kick off in the fall. Sincerely,

Peter Van Heerden Executive Director quickcenter.com


nora chipaumire

NEHANDA Friday, September 23, 2022 • 6 p.m. $30 | $5 Fairfield University student H Quick Member: $20 H

nora chipaumire’s newest work investigates the legend of Nehanda, a powerful Zimbabwean spirit venerated by the Shona people who inhabits only women. In 1896-97, Nehanda’s medium was a heroic revolutionary leader who orchestrated the first uprisings in Britishoccupied Southern Rhodesia. Captured and hung after an unjust trial, she was executed by the British colonizers who were so scared that they ordered her bones and the skull to be sent to the UK. Nehanda offers a legal and philosophical defense for these first historic heroes of Zimbabwe’s liberation struggle, with its libretto based on the infamous court case “The Queen [Victoria] vs. Nehanda” (1898).

“ Conceived as a durational opera running five and a half hours, this immersive, participatory and durational spectacle is a communal experience where the audience can collectively perform and investigate the process of law-making and its crucial role in the European colonial project.”

nora chipaumire



Mariachi Herencia de México with Lupita Infante

Friday, September 30, 2022 • 8 p.m. $30 | $5 Fairfield University student H Quick Member: $20 H Cuando México Canta features this dynamic, Chicago-based, Latin Grammy-nominated ensemble of young Mexican-American musicians, recognized as the new ambassadors of the mariachi tradition, performing a vibrant tribute to the golden age of Mexican music. Joined by multi-Grammy-nominated star Lupita Infante, an advocate for women’s empowerment through her music, Mariachi Herencia de México and Infante honor the legacy they inherited with a colorful and unforgettable experience of Mexican music and culture.

“ This is mariachi music at its most sophisticated and most modernistic. It’s almost the antithesis of folklore, almost futuristic… it is state-of-the-art.” – Jonathan Clark, mariachi expert and historian



Brett Bailey

The Stranger Wednesday, October 5, 2022 • 7 p.m. Thursday, October 6, 2022 • 7 p.m. $30 | $5 Fairfield University student H Quick Member: $20 H An immigrant arrives in the city. He brings a gift that has a profound impact on people, transforming their realities, opening minds and hearts and doors of perception. Until he is silenced. This ritual theatre work brings an ancient myth into a fractured contemporary world. South African-born playwright, designer, and director, Brett Bailey, uses performance to interrogate the dynamics of the postcolonial world, highlighting the blind, forgotten, broken, and the voiceless. The Stranger originally premiered as ORFEUS in Cape Town in 2006, and since then has been evolving in distinct versions made in different parts of the world in collaboration with 10 local performers, musicians, and other creatives, grounded in the contexts of the places in which it is re-made.

Brett Bailey

“ [Bailey] … creates theatrical experiences that, rather than offer easy answers, challenge audiences by opening up complex discourses. He invites audiences to participate in ideas rather than have them passively consume theatre entertainment.” – Keith Bain, The Daily Maverick, November 2021 quickcenter.com


Carl Bernstein

Focusing a Journalistic Lens: Watergate to Washington 2024 Tuesday, October 18, 2022 • 7:30 p.m. $100 Cocktail Reception (includes ticket) $30 | $5 Fairfield University student H Quick Member: $20 H Carl Bernstein is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author best known for his work with Bob Woodward in breaking the Watergate story in The Washington Post and in the classic book, All the President’s Men. Bernstein’s pursuit of the truth continues to change the landscape of American journalism. For over four decades, he has been setting the standard for modern investigative reporting, achieving a legacy of balanced, award-winning journalism. Through his books, as a contributing editor for Vanity Fair and as a political analyst for CNN, Bernstein reflects on a crucial theme that has coursed through American history: the use and abuse of power in politics, media, finance, and spirituality.

“Journalist Bernstein casts a sometimes appreciative, sometimes condemnatory eye on covering the Washington, D.C., of old, from Jim Crow to Camelot.” – Kirkus Reviews



Frances Haugen

Ethics, the Public Good, and the Challenge of Social Media Tuesday, November 1, 2022 • 7:30 p.m. $30 | $5 Fairfield University student H Quick Member: $20 H

“ These problems are solvable. A safer, free speech-respecting, more enjoyable social media is possible.” – Frances Haugen


An advocate for accountability and transparency in social media, in late 2020 Frances Haugen, having become increasingly alarmed by the choices Facebook was making—prioritizing its own profits over public safety and putting people’s lives at risk— made the courageous decision to blow the whistle on the company for which she was working. She has since testified in front of the U.S. Congress, U.K. and E.U. Parliaments, and others, engaging with lawmakers internationally on how to best address the negative externalities of social media platforms. She fundamentally believes the problems we face with social media are solvable, and is dedicated to uniting people around the world to bring about change.



Pass it On: 60 th Anniversary Musical Celebration Friday, November 4, 2022 • 8 p.m. $50 | $5 Fairfield University student

Presented in affiliation with the Fredrickson Family Innovation Lab Camera obscura is the Latin term for “dark room” and typically consists of any darkened space with a small aperture that emits into the interior a ray of sunlight illuminating a white surface such as a wall or screen. In this artist talk, two of the most innovative cinematic practitioners of their generation, Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, rediscover and even redefine this centuries-old optical device as a form of cinema at once ancient and contemporary.

Musical Borderlands Sunday, November 13, 2022 • 3 p.m. $30 | $5 Fairfield University student H Quick Member: $20 H Pianist Orin Grossman has long been fascinated by musical borderlands: places where popular culture and so-called high culture connect. In this solo recital, he travels the Americas to present music from Brazil, Cuba, and the United States. Among the featured composers are Ernesto Lecuona (who was called “the Cuban Gershwin”), Ernesto Nazareth, an early pioneer of Brazilian music, Scott Joplin, and George Gershwin.



Vertigo Dance Pardes

Saturday, January 21, 2023 • 8 p.m. $30 | $5 Fairfield University student H Quick Member: $20 H

Pardes was born at home. It is a work of art in which the body connects to its inner spiritual layers — to the insides of each human being/dancer, while being interwoven with a common tapestry. Pardes, the Hebrew word for ‘orchard,’ originates from ancient Persian and means a garden of trees. The word has also penetrated to other languages as ‘paradise.’ Perhaps the title of this new work by Vertigo Dance is a nod to where they create and live — an eco-arts village committed to the intersections of creativity, social responsibility and ecological sustainability. With a musical soundtrack created by internationally acclaimed percussionist, Itamar Doari, the dancers deal with the duality of their lives, with the tensions they experience between their individual needs and the demands of society, between the person and the universal.

“ This work is moving, rare, and exquisite. Waiting to see it again”

SPRING 2023 Norma Minkowitz: Body to Soul

January 27–April 21, 2023 For over five decades, Connecticutbased artist Norma Minkowitz has used fiber to explore the fundamental tensions of being human. Her crocheted and interlaced threads, stiffened into hard mesh-like structures, seemingly defy gravity to take the form of wearables, vessels, figurative sculpture, and drawings. Presenting a range of works spanning her entire career, this exhibition invites viewers to contemplate the dualities of delicacy and strength, nature and culture, body and spirit.

FALL 2022 Gladys Triana: Beyond Exile September 23– December 17, 2022

Gladys Triana is a Cuban-born, New-Yorkbased, multi-disciplinary artist whose work rebels against authoritarian rule, domination, and power. She explores themes related to the historical struggle of women and the condition of exile, as well as subjects such as ephemerality, memory, and ultimately the search for a language of transcendence. Triana’s body of work encompasses largescale sculpture, immersive installations, photography, and mixed media, as well as painting and drawing. Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective, this twovenue survey (at the Fairfield University Art Museum and the Art Museum at University of St. Joseph) spans work from the 1970s to the present. The work at Fairfield will focus on her early years in New York, and her sense of exile and feelings of isolation. Faculty Liaison: Silvia Marsans-Sakly, PhD

SPRING 2023 Women’s Rights are Human Rights January 20–April 8, 2023

Gender inequalities remain deeply entrenched in global society: women lack access to decent work and face occupational segregation and gender wage disparities; are often denied access to basic education and health care; suffer from violence and discrimination; and are under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes. The more than 80 posters, created by artists worldwide, celebrate and acknowledge the vital role that all citizens should play in protecting and promoting human rights while actively challenging gender inequality and stereotypes, advancing sexual and reproductive rights, and protecting women and girls against brutality. In their collective visual voice, these posters promote women’s empowerment and participation in society while challenging religious and cultural norms and patriarchal attitudes that subordinate, stigmatize, or restrict women from achieving their fullest potential. Co-curated by Fairfield University faculty, Rachelle Brunn-Bevel, PhD, Liz Hohl, PhD, Johanna Garvey, PhD, and Anna Lawrence, PhD in collaboration with museum staff. Faculty Liaison: Anna Lawrence, PhD

Peter Anton: Just Desserts April 28–July 15, 2023

This whimsical exhibition of Peter Anton’s outsized, hyper-realistic sculptures of sweets will include ice cream cones, cakes and confections. Anton has experimented with various methods, including wood, metal, plaster, resin, and oil and acrylic paints to achieve the physicality of his monumental desserts. He chooses subjects that encourage people to think about their own relationship to food, and the memories and nostalgia that these childhood favorites conjure. Faculty Liaison: Scott Lacy, PhD

E Eurydice by

Sarah Ruhl

One of America’s greatest female playwrights takes on the ancient myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, but this time, it’s told from her point of view.

Featuring compelling plot twists and contemporary storytelling techniques, the piece is a fresh look at a timeless love story.

HENRY V by William Shakespeare Monday, August 8, 2022 • 7 p.m. Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) plays the title role in Shakespeare’s thrilling study of nationalism, war and the psychology of power. Fresh to the throne, King Henry V launches England into a bloody war with France. When his campaign encounters resistance, this inexperienced new ruler must prove he is fit to guide a country into war. Captured live from the Donmar Warehouse in London, this exciting modern production directed by Max Webster (Life of Pi) explores what it means to be English and our relationship to Europe, asking: do we ever get the leaders we deserve?

PRIMA FACIE Monday, August 15, 2022 • 7 p.m. Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play. Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending, cross examining, and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof, and morals diverge. Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game. Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End. A production from Empire Street Productions. Additional dates and titles to be announced soon. Please join our email list at quickcenter.com to be alerted when tickets go on sale.
