HOPKINS CENTER FOR THE ARTS 2013 | 2014
LOOKING AHEAD TO THE NEXT 50 YEARS Last year, the Hop surged with energy as the campus and the community beyond helped us celebrate 50 years of extraordinary performing arts. This year, we keep that inspiration alive with engagements by thrilling visiting artists from around the world and performances by brilliantly directed student artists, offering established repertoire as well as new works—while also envisioning how the Hop’s facilities and programs can nurture arts in the next 50 years. We hope you’ll join us in this adventure.

Originating from late-night music reading parties, The Knights are hailed internationally for joyous performances and innovative programming. Led “from the heart” (Performance Today) by Artistic Director Eric Jacobsen, the youthful ensemble premieres Concerto for Santur and Violin by Eric’s brother Colin—with whom he co-directs The Knights and also plays in the string quartet Brooklyn Rider—and Iranian santur (dulcimer) player Siamak Aghaei; and plays Reich’s Duet for two Violins and Strings, Bach’s Concerto for Violin and Oboe, Haydn’s Symphony No 8 “Le Soir,” Stravinsky’s Concerto in E-flat “Dumbarton Oaks” and The Knights’ own Chaconne.

“Any attempt to describe what Reggie Watts does onstage will inevitably fail to convey the dizzying heights of absurdity the man regularly achieves.” Village Voice A complete original, musician/comedian Reggie Watts spins out riotous, stream-of-consciousness monologues laced with improvised songs he creates layer by layer, using only his gloriously flexible voice, keyboards and a looping machine. No one can anticipate what character, musical style or wicked observation he’ll deliver next—and neither does he. A regular on Comedy Bang Bang, Conan and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and in top performance spaces worldwide, Watts is “a freewheeling, beat-boxing…madman” (Time Out New York) who never delivers the same show twice.

Playing for Peace For 25 years, through “Playing for Peace,” New Hampshire’s Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music has used chamber music to promote cross-culture understanding in “hot spots” across the globe.

The first performance group in the nation comprised primarily of people who have experienced homelessness, Los Angeles Poverty Department teams up with Netherlands-based collective Wunderbaum, which, like LAPD, tackles critical social issues with intelligence, humor, compassion and absorbing stagecraft. Combining material from interviews with patients and doctors—including researchers at The Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science—with the familiar tropes of hospital television series, the actors create a metaphor for the healthcare system: an exciting “ficto-mentary” of love, life, money and death.
