2012/13

Welcome to a remarkable new season! These are exciting times for ARTS NC STATE. Construction is underway on a major expansion and renovation of Talley Student Center, the home of Stewart Theatre and (for now) the Gregg Museum of Art & Design. And planning is barreling ahead on a farsighted project that will transform NC State’s historic Chancellor’s Residence on Hillsborough Street into the new home of the Gregg Museum, creating an outstanding cultural landmark for our region (see page 15 for details). But don’t get the wrong idea: we’re open for business! Programming continues in Stewart Theatre until December 2012, and in the Talley Ballroom and the current Gregg Museum until May 2013. Programming in the magnificent (and recently renovated) Thompson Hall goes on as usual. You may see construction fencing outside of Talley, but once inside the building, artistic magic will prevail. I invite you to explore these pages to see the amazing lineup of performances and exhibitions that await us in the coming year. We offer an abundance of theatre, dance and music – with performances from our exceptionally talented NC State students as well as amazing artists from around the world. Join us for the magic!

N. Alexander Miller III Associate Vice Chancellor

 2 shows

The Capitol Steps

comedy!

Saturday, September 15, at 4pm & 8pm | Stewart Theatre

Nicholas Leichter Parsons Dance



You know them, you love them… plus it’s an election year, which means they’ll have lots of juicy material! For over thirty years, the Capitol Steps have been putting politics and scandal to music. They began when Reagan was president and ketchup was a vegetable. As fans know, the Steps are the premiere political comedy troupe in the nation, and the only group in Washington that attempts to be funnier than the Congress.

Twenty Twenty featuring Nicholas Leichter and Bryan Strimpel Friday & Saturday, September 28 & 29, 2012 at 8pm | Titmus Theatre Very few dance with the sheer magnetism of Nicholas Leichter. Then wunderkind Bryan Strimpel came along. Together, these exceptional dancers perform a new work that explores the dynamics of age, race, sexuality, and performance personae. Twenty Twenty is an exhilarating duet that reveals how Leichter, who is African American and almost 40, and Strimpel, who is white and just turned 22, can be polar opposites in so many ways – but are in complete sync as dancers and artists. Featuring a mixtape of some of the most soulful, experimental, and popular music of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Twenty Twenty will be a dance and music feast – rich, lush, powerful, brave, vulnerable, human and hot!

Parsons Dance Friday, October 12, 2012 at 8pm | Stewart Theatre The sexy athleticism, exuberant personality and joyous movement of Parsons Dance have made them one of the hottest tickets in American dance. Hailed as one of the greatest choreographers of his generation, David Parsons is a former leading dancer with the Paul Taylor Dance Company. His work is witty, energetic, and highly accessible. The performance will feature both new works and classics, including Parsons’ spectacular audience favorite, Caught.

Kathy Mattea Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 8pm | Stewart Theatre For Kathy Mattea, Appalachia represents an essential piece of her musical education and heritage. It’s home. Long known as an impeccable songcatcher, Mattea’s 17 albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel and Celtic influences. The unmistakable voice of this Grammy Award-winner explores music’s most basic human essence through timeless melodies and uplifting narratives. She’ll soon be releasing her new album, Calling Me Home, a journey through Appalachia and its amazing musical tradition.

Connecting Crossroads in North Carolina

with Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) and Laurelyn Dossett Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 8pm | Stewart Theatre Last January, violinist and composer Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) and North Carolina singer/songwriter Laurelyn Dossett travelled from the mountains to the coast, meeting with folks in a variety of communities, seeking stories to inspire a new collection of musical works that reflect the people and places of North Carolina. This fall, there will be a series of seven concerts around the state called Connecting Crossroads in North Carolina, culminating in a performance in Stewart Theatre on November 17. This will be our last Center Stage concert in Stewart before it closes for the Talley renovation project. DBR (now minus the fabulous dreads) is a longtime favorite of Center Stage audiences, renowned for seamlessly blending funk, rock, hip-hop and classical music. Laurelyn Dossett brings the sound of southern folk music to this project; she is noted for years with the band Polecat Creek, her original music for Greensboro’s Triad Stage, and her holiday song cycle, “The Gathering,” commissioned by the North Carolina Symphony in 2011. NOT TO BE MISSED! Help us celebrate our final Center Stage performance in Stewart Theatre – for the time being. We will make a quick transformation for an onstage farewell party following this concert. Tickets will be limited, so please place your order early.

The compositions created for Connecting Crossroads in North Carolina are commissioned by NCSU Center Stage, Davidson College Friends of the Arts and Smith Artist Series, UNCW Presents, East Carolina University's S. Rudolph Alexander Performing Arts Series, and The Performing Arts Series at Appalachian State University. Additional support is provided by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts; and by South Arts, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the NC Arts Council.

Tomáš Kubínek

Certified Lunatic & Master of the Impossible Friday & Saturday, March 15 & 16, 2013 at 8pm | Titmus Theatre Tomáš Kubínek has to be the wildest thing to fly out of Canada since geese! A collision of theatre and music hall, his exuberant one-man show is equal parts comic brilliance, virtuosic vaudeville and irresistible charm. Balancing the absurd and the profound, his outrageous antics may defy description, but he’ll make you laugh ‘til you cry as he takes you under his hypnotic spell. He’ll fly in (or out) of Titmus Theatre for two shows.

Ninety Miles

featuring Stefon Harris, Nicholas Payton & David Sánchez Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 8pm; Friday, April 5, 2013 at 7pm & 9pm | Titmus Theatre The distance between Miami and Havana is only ninety miles. This project, featuring New Orleans-born trumpeter Nicholas Payton, Puerto Rican saxophonist David Sánchez, and New York vibraphonist Stefon Harris, adopts the distance as its title, and seeks to bridge that divide and emphasize the musical, cultural and historical kinships between the United States and Cuba. There will be three performances of Ninety Miles over two nights in the intimate Titmus Theatre.

Frank Vignola Friday & Saturday, April 12 & 13, 2013 at 8pm | Titmus Theatre How amazing is guitarist Frank Vignola? A single performance careens across the musical spectrum from standards to opera, classic rock to contemporary pop, Latin to R&B, classical to swing, all performed with stunning virtuosity. He has performed with the likes of Ringo Starr, Madonna, Donald Fagen, Wynton Marsalis and Mark O’Connor. The late guitar legend Les Paul named Vignola to his “five most admired guitarists” list for the Wall Street Journal. He’ll be joined on stage by the wonderful young guitarist Vinny Raniolo for two nights in Titmus Theatre.

KIDSTUFF SERIES on hiatus Our beloved Kidstuff Series will be on hiatus during the time of the Talley Student Center renovation.

In Response

Weaving by Ann Roth and Vita Plume Closing reception: Thursday, September 6, 6-8pm Two contemporary weavers respond to objects from the Gregg Museum's permanent collection with works of their own. Vita Plume uses portraits taken in the Appalachians in the early 1900s by photographers like Doris Ulmann, Bayard Wooten, Paul Buchanan and others as a source of inspiration. She creates ghostly images and patterns that explore the instability of visual and cultural identity, woven on a digital Jacquard loom. Ann Roth finds inspiration in quilts from the Gregg collection whose rhythmic repetition of geometric shapes, juxtapositions of fabric patterns, and often quirky color combinations influence her ikat, handwoven textiles.

September 27-December 16, 2012

Art Without Artists Co-curated by John Foster and Roger Manley Opening reception: Thursday, September 27, 6-8pm When French Dada artist Marcel Duchamp signed his name on a commercially manufactured bottle-drying rack and entered it in a 1914 Paris exhibition as a piece of sculpture, did it become art? When 12th century Chinese scholars rescued eroded limestone boulders from the bottoms of lakes and placed them on pedestals, did the rocks become sculptures, or were the rocks already art when they were still underwater, centuries before anyone ever saw them? Art Without Artists is a show that asks lots of intriguing questions. If someone casually takes a snapshot, and then years later someone else happens to recognize that it is a great photograph, who is the artist – the one who took the picture, or the one who recognized it? Do photographers ever really make works of art, do they just choose them, or do they only find them? Can anyone take credit for happy accidents? What about abstract painters? Combining things like anonymous snapshots, bullet-riddled deer crossing signs, industrial tools that might pass for contemporary masterpieces, and quirky transformational objects that may be natural, found, or completely accidental, Art Without Artists probes whether art exists only in the eye of the beholder or remains forever stranded in some Twilight Zone between intention and chance.

Spirit – Fire – Shake!

Focal objects by Renée Stout, Kevin Sampson and Odinga Tyehimba Opening reception: Thursday, September 27, 6-8pm Spirit – Fire – Shake! features works by three African American artists that evoke shrines and altars, but are perhaps best described as “focal objects,” a term Tibetan Buddhists use to refer to physical things that encourage spiritual concentration. Renée Stout is a Washington, DC-based artist who employs a variety of media including painting, drawing, mixed media sculpture, photography and installation in an attempt to create works that foster self-examination, introspection and the ability to laugh at the absurdities of life. Newark, New Jersey artist Kevin Sampson was a former cop and composite sketch artist for over 19 years. The death of his third child affected him more deeply than anything he’d seen in the line of duty. After losing several other family members, he began making “memorials” from found objects, not only to them but also to friends who had died of AIDS or drugs, erecting them in the tough neighborhoods where he lived. Odinga Tyehimba was born in Mississippi and now lives in Durham. At hip-hop gatherings, he found himself impressed by the African-themed staffs that many of the emcees wielded, and began carving canes and staffs of his own. These soon morphed into larger figures and assemblages that incorporate personal, political and mythological symbolism reflecting African traditions and mainstream Christianity as well as other belief systems like Voodoo and Santeria.

January 17-April 26, 2013

Farfetched

Mad Science, Fringe Architecture and Visionary Engineering Co-curated by Tom Patterson and Roger Manley Opening reception: Thursday, January 17, 6-8pm Farfetched takes as its basic point of departure British mathematician Alfred North Whitehead's famous quip that, “Every really new idea looks crazy at first.” The exhibition will feature objects that question (and push) the boundaries of what is considered “normal” in art and technology. For example, Frank Lloyd Wright was considered a great architect, and Norman Bel Geddes was recognized as a great designer, but neither Wright's visionary mile high city (The Illinois), nor Geddes' proposed flying wing (Air Liner Number 4) ever proved feasible. Meanwhile, an uneducated Hispanic handyman named Simon Rodia, who was labeled insane, really did manage to build the famous Watts Towers in Los Angeles – singlehandedly and so sturdily that the towers couldn't be torn down (L.A. city engineers tried). Some of the greatest scientists, architects, and engineers who ever lived – Galileo, Newton, Tesla, Marconi, the Wright brothers – were accused of insanity at one time or another during their careers.

Humanature

Photographs of the unnatural world by Peter Goin Opening reception: Thursday, January 17, 6-8pm Nevada photographer Peter Goin makes images |of human-made flies, artificial lakes and forests, man-made waterfalls, fake tornados, trees, rocks and artificial beaches, as well as controlled burns, designer forests, and managed wildlife reserves, in order to question the relationship of culture to the natural and unnatural worlds. His photos explore and document the extent to which people and nature have become a strangely intertwined continuum and ask whether nature is an illusion created by culture, or a fiction dramatically reinforced through our tradition of environmental management. Does a plastic tree satisfy our cultural need for visible biota? Can (and should) an ocean beach be artificially maintained as a vast expanse of fine sand? Can we control the weather? Does “nature” have value because of the increasing demands of the urban environment? Are human-made rocks better than the real thing? Goin’s large-format color photos, many of them shot in North Carolina, are as funny as they are disturbing.

artists & objects series Artists and Objects is a series of programs and events that focuses on the Gregg Museum’s permanent collection and current exhibitions.

The Gregg Museum of Art & Design Finds a New Home… The Gregg Museum of Art & Design, NC State University’s collecting and exhibiting art museum, has found a new home for its diverse collection of 25,000 objects, its thought-provoking rotating exhibitions, and its various education and public programs. The historic chancellor’s residence at 1903 Hillsborough Street in Raleigh will be the site of the new Gregg, forming the apex of a campus and community arts complex that will include Pullen Arts Center and Theatre in the Park. What is the Gregg Museum Campaign?

How can I help?

The Gregg Museum Campaign must raise funds in order to renovate the historic residence and build the museum’s addition. NC State University demonstrated its commitment to the new museum by funding half of the project’s total cost of $7.5 million and now the remaining funds must be privately raised.

You are welcome to visit the site of the future Gregg Museum to learn more about this exciting project! In the meantime, visit newgregg.ncsu.edu to learn more about the Gregg Museum Campaign. There you will find information on the following giving levels:

When will the new Gregg open? The Gregg Museum Campaign is underway now! Once we reach our goal, we may break ground and begin renovations of the historic chancellor’s residence and construction of the contemporary addition.

» Naming opportunity levels (with individual donor plaque recognition): $25,000+ » Founding Friends level (with comprehensive donor plaque recognition): $5,000 - $25,000 » Gifts of all levels are welcome!

Contact Nicole Peterson at 919-513-1337 or nicole_peterson@ncsu.edu to schedule a visit or with any questions.

university theatre Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Book by Jeffrey Lane, Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek Wednesday, September 26-Sunday, September 30, 2012 | Stewart Theatre Evening shows at 7:30pm, Sunday matinee at 2pm Is there room for two con men to fleece the rich ladies of the French Riviera? The sophisticated Lawrence Jameson and small-time crook Freddy Benson disastrously attempt a partnership, and find out quickly that the small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. They make an agreement: the first one to extract $50 grand from heiress Christine Colgate wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that keeps audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end! Based on the popular 1988 film featuring Steve Martin.

“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is funny. Period.” –thebroadwaycriticblog.com

Alice in Wonderland Based on the book by Lewis Carroll Adapted by Jayme Mellema

Wednesday, November 14-Sunday, November 18, 2012 Wednesday, November 28-Sunday, December 2, 2012 | Titmus Theatre (No show on Friday, November 30; two on Saturday, December 1) Evening shows at 7:30pm, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2pm Follow us down the Rabbit Hole to Wonderland. We’ll accompany Alice through the bizarre dream world where she encounters the absurd, exaggerated, and nonsensical rules of adult behavior as seen through the eyes of a child. Combining live actors, puppetry, projection, music, sound and lighting, this classic tale comes to life with all the humorous favorite characters: The White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Caterpillar, the Queen of Hearts, and of course, the Cheshire Cat! This unique adaptation is conceived, designed and directed by University Theatre’s scenic designer and UNC School of the Arts graduate Jayme Mellema.

“It is a universal story and so belongs to all time. It has never gone out of fashion and never will as long as children love wonder-stories and grown-ups have young hearts.” –Florence Milner in The Poems in Alice in Wonderland

An Inspector Calls By J. B. Priestly

Wednesday, February 13-Sunday, February 17, 2013 Wednesday, February 20-Sunday, February 24, 2013 | Titmus Theatre Evening shows at 7:30pm, Sunday matinees at 2pm In an English industrial city in 1912, the eminently respectable Birling family is celebrating their daughter’s engagement when a doorbell interrupts the family festivities. It is an inspector who says he is investigating the suicide of a young woman who worked at the Birling’s factory until she was fired for leading a strike for better pay. What starts as an evening of celebration in a close-knit family increasingly deteriorates as the inspector interrogates and implicates each member of the group. But after the inspector departs, it is revealed that he is not who he said he was, and the mystery deepens. What kind of hoax is tearing this family apart? An engaging psychological thriller.

“An intriguing, clever piece of theatre that leaves you thinking about it long after the curtain call.” −Official London Theatre

Friday, April 5-Sunday, April 7, 2013 Wednesday, April 10-Sunday, April 14, 2013 Wednesday, April 17-Sunday, April 21, 2013 | Kennedy-McIlwee Studio Theatre Evening shows at 7:30pm, Sunday matinees at 2pm Set in the 1960s, the story of Heidi Holland takes us from Chicago to New York and places in between, as the successful art historian tries to find her bearings in a world that is rapidly changing, especially for women. She watches her friends move from the idealism and political radicalism of college years through militant feminism, then back to the materialism that they rejected in the first place. Heidi’s path takes her through an affair with an arrogant lawyer/publisher to a troubling relationship with a charming young pediatrician with baggage of his own. This funny and touching play explores how liberation is achieved only if one is true to oneself. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award and New York Drama Critics Circle award.

“Not many plays manage Heidi’s feat of inducing almost continuous laughter while forcing the audience to examine its preconceptions… it’s the play of the season.” – Variety
