On the evening of April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside room 306 of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. What happened inside room 306 the night before the killing is a mystery. In her internationally acclaimed play, The Mountaintop, playwright Katori Hall fantasizes what may have transpired in the overnight hours between the legendary civil rights leader and a seemingly inconsequential hotel maid.

Martin Luther King Jr. hours after his famed final speech, punctuated by the immortal line, “I’ve been to the mountaintop,” the celebrated reverend reveals his hopes, regrets, and fears, creating a masterful bridge between mortality and immortality. In 2018, America and the world mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr., yet, struggles to resolve racial tension remain a challenge for communities everywhere.

Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop is rife with humor and political jabs, while giving us a glimpse at the human side of

The powerhouse all-male Argentinian dance company, Che Malambo, excites audiences with percussive dance, whirling lasso boleadoras, and music spectacle. Malambo, a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song, is at the heart of the gaucho (South American cowboy) tradition and is now thrilling audiences around the world with this new production created by renowned French choreographer and former ballet dancer, Gilles Brinas. Che Malambo brings fiery South American malambo traditions and

virtuosic dancing to the stage for an exhilarating and entertaining show that is perfect for the entire family.

with stones used as a hunting weapon to capture cattle or game by entangling their legs or wings.

Malambo began in the 17th century as a kind of rhythmic competitive duel that challenged agility, strength and speed among the gauchos. The hallmark style, zapeteo, is the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. In addition to zapateo, malambo features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords and weighted

Gilles Brinas performed with prestigious dance companies throughout Europe including Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon and the Ballet of the Twentieth Century, founded by Maurice Béjart. In addition to founding the Ballet DEA in 1979, Brinas has choreographed works for Biennale de la Danse. Amongst his many honors are awards from the Bagnolet competition and the Charles Oulmont Foundation.

Robert O. and Elizabeth M. Bentley Musical Presented by the Department of Theater, Dance, and Film Studies and by the Department of Music Charles Addams’ creepy, kooky and often demented characters made their debut in the New Yorker magazine in 1938. Not widely known is that the pen and ink humorist had some demented issues of his own, but he still knew the meaning of family, even if his version was a topsy-turvy one. From the printed page to television to motion pictures this inversion of the typical American family has found its way to the musical stage with a modern Broadway score, imaginative special effects and our favorite mysterious and spooky characters. We find Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Wednesday and the rest in a fractured Romeo and Juliet tale—without the tragic stuff! Tangos, sword fights, lightbulbs, and ah, graveyards, preciously dead flowers, the French! They’re all here. Come join us for a musical perfect for the Halloween season. 4

Trio ZBR will be presenting a program that expands the definition of virtuosity in music—even the deceptively simple pieces can be fiendishly difficult to play and require incredible concentration by musicians and audiences alike. The program contains three works written specifically for the trio and, although all the pieces are deeply versed in the classical tradition, they each resist categorization and are quite novel in terms of formal structure, without ever losing an ever-present direct emotional impact. A founding member of the new music sextet Eighth Blackbird, Grammy-winning flutist Molly Alicia Barth specializes in the music of today. Jeffrey Zeigler is one of the most versatile cellists of our time, having spent eight seasons with the renowned Kronos Quartet. Pianist David Riley, no stranger to regular SonoKlect audiences, has been mesmerizing audiences at many of North America’s most prestigious venues for more than two decades.

Timothy Gaylard Sunday, September 17, 2017 3 p.m. Wilson Concert Hall

The final three piano sonatas of Beethoven, Op. 109, 110 and 111, have an iconic status for pianists and historians. They represent the climax and fruition of Beethoven’s lifelong obsession with the sonata as a genre. They also hold his most expressive and intimate emotions, from the familiarly angry and passionate to the ethereal and timeless. As both a pianist and historian, Professor Timothy Gaylard spent his final sabbatical this past Winter Term immersing himself in these complicated and fascinating works. Reading as much as he could about their genesis, Gaylard analyzed them as compositions, and he listened to countless recordings and watched many videos of different performances by the greatest pianists of the past hundred years. But, most importantly, he practiced and worked on them in preparation for this concert, an experience that he is looking forward to sharing with an audience. No tickets are required.

Lo Còr de la Plana (pronounced “Loh cor deh la plahna”) is a gritty romp, matching five male a cappella voices with the stomping, clapping beat of a variety of hand drums which accompany this French ensemble. Sung in the little-known ancient language of “Occitan,” the group transcends

translation with wit, tenacity and, above all, intricate harmonies soaring between dissonant and sacred. Ripe with passion and Mediterranean roots, flavors of Arabic, African and parts of Gregorian chant, the group takes you on a European journey that stirs the soul.

A Passion for Art:

The Collection of Eugene M. and Judith F. Kramer

allery Exhibition: November 6–June 30, 2018 Reception: TBA Kamen Gallery, Lenfest Hall

Fernando Botero, Boy with Guitar, ca. 1960, oil on canvas, 51 x 39 inches

In the late 1950s, Washington and Lee University 1940 alumnus Eugene M. Kramer and his wife Judith were active partners in the Gres Gallery, a significant leader in contemporary art in Washington D.C. before it closed in 1962. Through their connections, travels, and love of art, the couple amassed a small but significant collection of works by leading artists of the second half of the 20th century. Several pieces in the Kramer collection were purchased at the Gres Gallery, including an early work by Colombian artist Fernando Botero. Other notable artists in the collection include Rufino Tamayo, Max Ernst, Antoni Tàpies, Grace Hartigan and Sam Gilliam. Organized by the University Collections of Art & History, the exhibition is generously loaned by the collectors’ son, Richard E. Kramer, a 1969 W&L alumnus with a long career in theater. The collection will hang in the Kamen Gallery, Lenfest Hall, a particularly appropriate venue since Gene Kramer was an active member of the Lenfest Center development committee before it opened in 1991.

In this series, Susan Worsham photographs the street where she grew up and her elderly neighbor Margaret, one of the last connections to her youth.

In 2012, Worsham received the Theresa Pollak Prize for Photography and was named one of Oxford

Anna Hepler: Hard-wired

Coney Island Crawler, 2017, ceramic, 12 x 11 x 4 inches

Anna Hepler conducts non-thematic experiments in ceramic, wood, metal, and paper, both handheld and monumental. Allowing each new piece to be informed by the last, Hepler coordinates a series of mutations that turn a collage into a woodcut, a woodcut into a print, a carved woodblock into a sculpture, and a wooden sculpture into a clay form. She portrays folded, slumped, stacked or intertwined forms in which one material

looks or behaves like another. Wood slats mimic hanging rope; woodblocks resemble animal hides; drypoint etchings simulate scraps of cloth; ceramics appear to be made of steel; and wire sculptures drape and flow like fabric. Hard-wired presents recent work from Hepler’s exploration into the language of visual perception; its illusions; its grammar of depth, surface, and edge; and the impressions that are gathered when certainty is lost.

*Borderland Collective: Northern Triangle

Exhibition: November 6–December 8, 2017 Lecture and Reception: Wednesday, November 15 5:30 p.m. Wilson Concert Hall

Northern Triangle is a traveling exhibition organized by Blue Star Contemporary and conceived and curated by Borderland Collective. Exhibition support provided by the City of San Antonio, Department of Arts and Culture.

Northern Triangle, installation view at Blue Star Contemporary

In 2014, more than 68,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended on the U.S./Mexico border, double the number from the previous year. Of this group, the majority are from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Known as the Northern Triangle, this region has a long and complicated relationship with the United States. Civil wars in the 1980s, deportation policies, the drug war, border issues, trade agreements, unjust

economic structures, political corruption, poverty, human trafficking, and many other situations have all contributed. Originally commissioned by Blue Star Contemporary, Northern Triangle is an exhibition created by Borderland Collective that opens a space for constructive dialogue and exchange around the current Central American refugee crisis along the U.S./Mexico border and the long and complicated history of U.S. intervention in which it is irrevocably entangled.

*Collaborators: Lead: Erina Duganne, Mark Menjivar, and Jason Reed; Artists: Adriana Corral, Noah Sadowski, Vincent Valdez, Jennifer Whitney, and Ricky Yanas; Community/Organizations: Stacey Merkt, Jack Elder, Library of Congress, the National Archives, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Vanderbilt Television News Archive, the South Texas Human Rights Center, Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture Migrant Detention Project, and Gemini Ink.

The Book of Everyday Instruction

Exhibition: January 8–February 7, 2018 Lecture and Reception: Monday, January 22 5:30 p.m. Wilson Concert Hall

I put these words in the bathroom because the bathroom is a place where people read, from The Book of Everyday Instruction, Chapter Four: It’s amazing we don’t have more fights; 2016; installation in shared multi-stall unisex bathroom, dimensions variable

Multi-form artist Chloë Bass uses daily life as a site of deep research to study scales of intimacy: where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand. The Book of Everyday Instruction, her second phase of the intimacy series, is an eight-chapter investigation of one-on-one social interaction and the meaning of pairing. This exhibition brings together work from all eight chapters, focusing on such central questions as “how do we know when we’re really together?” or “how do we tell a story based on

the proximity of two bodies in space?” Odd-numbered chapters, completed in partnership with communities and organizations in Cleveland, Greensboro, St. Louis, and New Orleans, have a social practice focus; evennumbered chapters were more meditative works produced more privately in the artist’s studio. Chloë Bass is an artist and writer living in New York City where she is also an Assistant Professor of Art at Queens College, City University of New York.

Study for Buddha’s Picnic, 2017, mixed media, dimensions variable

In Buddha’s Picnic, Gonkar Gyatso reconstructs a countryside shrine in Staniar Gallery, creating a material and experiential journey into the modern practice of constructing temporary sanctuaries. In keeping with Gyatso’s exploration of the sacred and the mundane with an approach that is both irreverent and probing, the installation invites visitors to examine the parallels between two deeply ingrained Tibetan traditions: Buddhist worship and picnicking.

Over the past 20 years Gyatso has gained international recognition for his multimedia work examining issues around cultural identity and hybridity. He has completed many installations, including: Three Realms in Brisbane Australia in 2012; 108; Excuse Me While I Kiss the Sky for the Singapore Art Museum in 2013; Family Album at the Michael C. Carlos Museum in Atlanta, GA, 2016 and at Art Basel Encounters, March 2017.

the young artists who concentrate in one of these areas to earn the BA degree in Studio Art. As their debut into the art world, the exhibit gives the graduating seniors the opportunity to display their work in a professional gallery setting.

Tillie Walden: Panels in Process

Exhibition: April 23–May 24, 2018 Lecture and Reception: TBA

This exhibition explores the creative process of cartoonist and illustrator Tillie Walden. Drawings, exploratory outlines, and sketchbook pages elucidate the development of Walden’s graphic novels as she works from the initial generation of ideas to the finished product. Her distinctive style blends muted colors and subtle detail with emotional storytelling that often draws on her own life experience. Walden’s acclaimed debut graphic novel, The End of Summer, came out in 2015 when she was just 19 years old. She has since published two more graphic novellas and, in 2016, earned her MFA from the Center for Cartoon Studies. The Texas-based artist is currently working on a graphic memoir.
