Welcome Imagination Starts Here! Welcome to the Modlin Center’s 20th anniversary season! This year marks an important celebration for the Center as we remember all the remarkable and rich experiences we have shared together, and as we look ahead to our ongoing cultural extension and connection to our university and regional communities. We look forward to continuing this platform for exceptional cultural and artistic experiences, to foster discourse through our programs, to support diverse understandings, and for our educational connections to these events. This season we are bringing back some of our favorite artists with new works, and are welcoming to the series an amazing lineup of local, national, and international artists. In additional, the faculty and student performances and events that we present from our performing art departments continue to add a rich and diverse layer to all the cultural events we present each year.

The Milk Carton Kids recently made their acting debut on Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter’s HBO drama “Vinyl.”

WEDNESDay, MarcH 29, 2017 | 7:30 PM Leslie Cheek Theatre, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts 200 N. Boulevard, Richmond, VA 23220 General Admission $28 | Modlin Subscriber $22 “The sextet Eighth Blackbird is simply the most exciting force for new music on the concert stage today” – Cincinnati.com

Eighth Blackbird

event Will Oldham

The centerpiece of the program by four-time Grammy® Awardwinning sextet Eighth Blackbird is Murder Ballades, a work by composer Bryce Dessner, guitarist for indie rock band The National. “The ‘murder ballad’ has its roots in a European tradition, in which grisly details of bloody homicides are recounted through song,” Dessner writes, and his set of seven instrumental ballads reflects his twists on the tradition. The music of singer-songwriter Will Oldham, aka Bonnie “Prince” Billy, has been linked to Americana, folk, roots, country, punk, and indie rock, and Will himself has been described as an “Appalachian postpunk solipsist” with a voice that is “a fragile sort of warble frittering around haunted melodies in the American folk or country tradition.” He joins the ‘Birds once again to perform a set of original songs, along with Frederic Rzewski’s iconic Coming Together, a touchstone piece of classical music’s young, underground, independently minded set. The evening’s program will also include David Lang’s learn to fly. This performance will take place at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ Leslie Cheek Theatre.

Lucinda Childs Dance Company DANCE Wednesday, January 25, 2017 | 7:30PM Thursday, January 26, 2017 | 7:30PM Alice Jepson Theatre Reserved Seating $40 | Modlin Subscriber $32 “One of the greatest achievements of the 20th century” – The Wall Street Journal A seminal collaboration emerging out of one of the most vibrant periods in New York’s art world, DANCE is a rarely performed signature work by Lucinda Childs, one of the pillars of the Judson Dance Theater collective. Initially reviled and now revered, this luminous, intricate, and endlessly fascinating 1979 masterpiece was created with composer Philip Glass and visual artist Sol LeWitt, whose ethereal black-and-white film version of the dance hovers over the performers. Lucinda Childs began her career at the Judson Dance Theater in 1963 where she choreographed 13 works and performed in works of Yvonne Rainer, Steve Paxton, and Robert Morris. Since forming her dance company in 1973, she has created more than 50 works, both solo and ensemble. In 1976, Childs collaborated with Robert Wilson and Philip Glass on the opera Einstein on the Beach, which earned her a Village Voice Obie award. In 1979, she received a Guggenheim Fellowship for her collaboration, Dance, with music by Glass and film décor by Sol LeWitt. Childs received the Bessie Award for Sustained Achievement in 2001, was elevated from the rank of Officer to Commander in France’s Order of Arts and Letters in 2004, and received the NEA/ NEFA American Masterpiece Award in 2009.

Join the Modin Center for Modlin Arts After Words, a post-show question-and-answer session with Lucinda Childs and members of the Company.

In celebration of the 80th birthday of legendary composer Philip Glass, the Modlin Center proudly presents The Complete Piano Études featuring Glass who will be joined by world-renowned pianists Maki Namekawa, Aaron Diehl, Timo Andres, and Lisa Kaplan. In an effort to expand his repertoire and to hone his skills on the piano, Philip Glass composed 20 études with a broad range of dynamics and tempo. The études are separated into sets of 10. The first set (Book 1), begun in the mid-1990s, focused on technical matters of piano-playing while the second set (Book 2) presents an examination of the language of music itself—developing new strategies regarding rhythmic and harmonic movement. Following studies at the Kunitachi Music University in Tokyo, Maki Namekawa pursued advanced work under Pierre-Laurent Aimard at the Musikhochschule in Cologne, as well as studies with Werner Genuit and Kaya Han at the Musikhochschule Karlsruhe, and Stefan Litwin in Saarbrüken. Pianist Aaron Diehl is one of the most sought after jazz virtuosos, consistently playing with “melodic precision, harmonic erudition, and elegant restraint” (The New York Times). Diehl’s meticulously thoughtout performances, collaborations, and compositions are a leading force in today’s generation of jazz contemporaries. Nonesuch Recording Artist Timo Andres’ newest album of orchestral works, Home Stretch, has been hailed for its “playful intelligence and individuality,” (The Guardian). The New Yorker wrote that his 2010 album for two pianos, Shy and Mighty, “achieved an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene… more mighty than shy, [Andres] sounds like himself.” Lisa Kaplan specializes in the performance of new work by living composers and is one of the founding members of the four-time Grammy® Award-winning sextet Eighth Blackbird. Kaplan has premiered new pieces by hundreds of composers, including Andy Akiho, Derek Bermel, Jennifer Higdon, Amy Beth Kirsten, David Lang, Nico Muhly, George Perle, and Steve Reich.

Saturday, January 28, 2017 | 7:30PM Alice Jepson Theatre Reserved Seating $20 | Modlin Subscriber $16 “In Cuba, everything that arrives integrates and becomes part of the culture.

Martha Graham Dance Company

Martha Graham Dance Company

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 | 7:30PM Thursday, September 22, 2016 | 7:30PM Alice Jepson Theatre Reserved Seating $45 | Modlin Subscriber $36 Described by The Washington Post as “one of the seven wonders of the artistic universe,” Martha Graham Dance Company has been a leader in dance since its inception in 1926. One of the most celebrated contemporary dance companies in America, Martha Graham Dance Company created and continues to embody a timeless and unique style of dance that has influenced generations of artists and captivated audiences worldwide. This program will celebrate both women choreographers and the many different aspects of being a woman. The Martha Graham classics will include Diversion of Angels, Errand into the Maze, and the celebrated Appalachian Spring, with the Pulitzer-Prize winning score by Aaron Copland. “Of all my ballets, Appalachian Spring is the one I cherish the most,” wrote the revolutionary choreographer Martha Graham in 1987. “Aaron Copland wrote the music for me and first called it ‘Ballet for Martha.’” Both American artists were innovators: Copland developed a new musical language to illustrate the American experience while Graham has been described as the “mother of modern dance.” Diversion of Angels from 1948 is a lyrical and joyous ode to the many different qualities of women in love. Errand into the Maze is inspired by the myth of Theseus, who traveled into the labyrinth to confront the Minotaur. This psychological duet sends a woman on the mission. The creature she battles may represent her own fears. In addition to these Graham masterworks, the Company will present the Lamentation Variations. These are three short contemporary works by some of today’s top women choreographers: Liz Gerring, Sonya Tayeh and Aszure Barton. Each dance is inspired by Graham’s iconic solo, Lamentation, and the audience will see a film of Graham herself dancing that groundbreaking work.

Originally a riveting teleplay, Judgment at Nuremberg became an Academy TM Award-winning film and a stage play that is both surprising and unsettling. Judgment at Nuremberg poses a number of difficult questions: How can indefensible crimes be defended? How does a judge, committed to the law, enforce immoral and vicious crimes against humanity? Why, in the aftermath of WWII, did America pressure the courts to be lenient on the defendants? And, critically, what does America do when our foreign policy interests clash with our stated beliefs in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?

Exploring the limitless possibilities of the traditional Japanese taiko drum, Kodo is forging new directions for a vibrant, living art form. In Japanese, the word “kodo” conveys two meanings. Firstly, “heartbeat,” the primal source of all rhythm. The sound of the great taiko is said to resemble a mother’s heartbeat as felt in the womb, and it is no myth that babies are often lulled asleep by its thunderous vibrations. Secondly, read in a different way, the word can mean “children of the drum,” a reflection of Kodo’s desire to play the drums simply, with the heart of a child. This performance will take place at Altria Theater. Ticket prices for this event include a $2 per ticket restoration fee.

 “[A] perceptive, achingly funny play.” —Variety 

 “A drama of depth, infectious humor and great humanity.” —San Francisco Chronicle Lisa Kron is a character in her own play. So is her mother. As Lisa, the character, works to create a theatrical memoir telling the story of her recovery from so-called allergies and the racial integration of her childhood neighborhood, her mother insists on questioning the accuracy of Lisa’s memories. The theatrical evening disintegrates into a hilarious play about issues of health, wellness, and community. This quirky and unique piece is a wonderfully insightful look into the loving and challenging complexities of the mother-daughter relationship.

Two lawyers (one black, the other white) find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with raping a black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface. When David Mamet turns the spotlight on what we think but can’t say, dangerous truths are revealed, and no punches are spared. Following his successful 2015 staging of Intimate Apparel, internationally acclaimed, award-winning director Chuck Mike follows up with this blistering and titillating drama on the Jepson Stage.
