EVOLUTION.


AS CAROLINA PERFORMING ARTS CELEBRATES ITS FIFTEENTH ANNIVERSARY SEASON, THIS WORD CAPTURES OUR HISTORY—AND FUTURE—AS AN ORGANIZATION.

SINCE 2005, WE HAVE PRESENTED: 659 PERFORMANCES BY 409 ARTISTS FROM 55 COUNTRIES, COMMISSIONED 51 WORKS, HOSTED 42 WORLD OR US PREMIERES, AND WORKED WITH THOUSANDS OF UNC STUDENTS THROUGH OUR ENGAGEMENT EFFORTS

Since our founding in 2005, we have partnered with artists across the world, created a home for cutting-edge artist residencies, and become a leader amongst our international peers. Throughout our first 14 seasons, we never ceased to evolve in how we approach our work. In the 19/20 season, we'll continue our dedication to exploration and growth, as believers in art that pushes boundaries, provokes discussion, and engages one's curiosity. Further, CPA supports work that invites co-creation and immersion at all levels, whether that is made manifest through an intimate performance that strips away barriers between artist and audience, or an experience that calls on you to take risks through participation. Perhaps most importantly, we believe that the arts should be for all people. As we approach the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 2020, we also celebrate the creative leadership of women throughout the season (see p. 30 for more). And as we close this landmark year, we’ll honor our history of presenting the world’s greatest classical artists and ensembles with performances by the London Symphony Orchestra, led by Sir Simon Rattle, and acclaimed pianist Lang Lang.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING CAROLINA PERFORMING ARTS—WE ARE PROUD TO CALL CHAPEL HILL OUR HOME. 1

ROSAS DANST ROSAS BY ANNE TERESA DE KEERSMAEKER AND ROSAS

In this riveting performance created by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, repetition plays the lead role. A seminal postmodern work, Rosas danst Rosas is unequivocally feminine—four women dancers engage in a dialogue of fierce movements that are countered by small everyday gestures. The exhaustion and perseverance that come with it create an emotional tension that contrasts sharply with the rigorous structure of this choreography by an internationally renowned dancemaker.

CAROLINA PERFORMING ARTS IS PROUD TO BE A NATIONAL LEADER IN ENVISIONING AND FORGING COLLABORATIVE ARTIST RESIDENCIES. CREATIVE FUTURES

Launched in 2018 and funded through a new $1.5 million grant from the Mellon Foundation, this initiative brings a transformative vision of community engagement, featuring collaborative creation in the arts, informed by faculty research. Groundbreaking artists Helga Davis, Shara Nova, Okwui Okpokwasili, and Toshi Reagon are assembling “triangular collaborations” that include members of UNC’s faculty engaged in community-based research as well as local partners. Through these co-creative partnerships, they are actively engaged in identifying multi-year projects that will invest in the community and its residents and thrive long beyond the life of the grant.

SHARA NOVA

In 19/20, we’ll mark several Creative Futures milestones, including the first year of collaborative work by the Creative Futures “triangular” teams. Stay tuned for updates on projects, partnerships, and public events.

Residents move in, move out, get evicted, burn it down, loot it, rent it, remodel it, get married, get divorced, age, die in it, and haunt it—all in a dreamlike blending of space and time. A grand spectacle of stagecraft, this masterpiece from award-winning physical theater artist Geoff Sobelle brings together the mundane and the sublime for a spellbinding exploration of what makes a house a home.

COMMUNITY: ART MADE BY CHAPEL HILL, FOR CHAPEL HILL Set in a fictional town, Affordable Housing: The Musical asks us to see a “community problem” as our problem. Collaboratively developed by Chapel Hill-based nonprofits Community Empowerment Fund and the Marian Cheek Jackson Center, Affordable Housing is the culmination of a year-long process during which local residents artistically processed personal housing challenges. It epitomizes the mission of CURRENT, a dynamic home for immersive performing arts that don’t fit into the traditional theater format (November 23 & 24, 2019 at CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio).

CONVERSATION: IN MOTION WITH CAROLINA PERFORMING ARTS + DIDA Can dance move us to have meaningful conversations? This is a question that motivates CPA’s engagement team and our friends at Durham Independent Dance Artists (DIDA), an arts organization dedicated to raising the profile of independent dance locally. Over the course of 19/20, CPA + DIDA will host public conversations about contemporary dance after select performances. Join our MOVEMENT!

CLASSROOM: GOING BACK TO SCHOOL WITH FLUTRONIX To create their new work Discourse, Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins-Hull of Flutronix went back to school to play student—and teacher. Over the course of a two-year residency at CPA, they researched everyday stories of resilience curated by UNC’s Southern Oral History Project; debated feminism, identity, and art with Professor Tanya Shields’s Women and Gender Studies students; and even became “embedded artists” in Professor Andrea Bohlman’s Music and Politics course. Through their openness and scholarship, UNC voices led Flutronix to artistic and personal discoveries. Visit page 43 to learn more about the premiere of this remarkable work.

CURRICULUM: ART AND PUBLIC SERVICE In 2015, the Buckley Public Service Scholars (BPSS) program at the Carolina Center for Public Service partnered with Carolina Performing Arts to create the Arts in Public Service Fellows, a program that encourages students to enrich their communities through the arts. Undergraduate Fellows attend at least two CPA performances, complete an arts-based skills training, and participate in mentorship sessions with arts administration professionals. Through this program, UNC students make deep connections between public service and the arts in order to recognize their overlapping transformational potential.

APRIL 2 & 3 7:30 PM THURSDAY 8 PM FRIDAY CURRENT ARTSPACE + STUDIO

DISCOURSE FLUTRONIX DIRECTED BY CHARLOTTE BRATHWAITE

WORLD PREMIERE COMMISSIONED BY CAROLINA PERFORMING ARTS

In this emotionally resonant new work from flute and electronics duo Flutronix, voices of Chapel Hill are brought to vibrant, shimmering life. Commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts, Discourse draws inspiration from—and incorporates—individual stories from this place for a stunning immersive musical performance in the intimate setting of CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio. Created over a two-year residency at Carolina Performing Arts, the seeds of Discourse were planted in response to the fear, uncertainty, and frustration dividing the US. From it was born a new artistic work that is of, by, and for the Triangle community. STUDENT TICKET ANGEL FUND BENEFACTOR MARIBEL CARRION

THE SOUL REBELS WITH SPECIAL GUEST BIG FREEDIA

The Soul Rebels started with an idea: take the pop music they loved to hear on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition of their hometown and make it into something new. The result? A revolutionary, deep pocket funk fusing soul, hip-hop, jazz, and rock with a popping brass band sound. Joined by New Orleans-based rapper—and Queen of Bounce music—Big Freedia, they make their CPA debut in style.
