Hurtling from a poolroom in Scotland to an armored truck in Iraq, this blistering, complex and urgent theater work is based on interviews with former soldiers who served in Iraq. Viewed through the eyes of those on the ground, Black Watch reveals what it means to be part of the legendary Scottish regiment, what it means to be part of the war on terror and what it means to make the journey home again. Exploring the male psyche and the morality of war with tremendous energy, wit and compassion, Black Watch addresses one of the thorniest issues of our time.

Please note: Black Watch contains strong language, loud explosions and strobe lighting.

the andersen Project – ex machina

Thursday, March 17 at 7:30 PM Friday, March 18 at 8 PM

Directed by Robert Lepage | Starring Yves Jacques

Filled to the brim with his trademark rapid-fire humor and visual and technological brilliance, this spellbinding masterpiece by Canadian theater visionary Robert Lepage explores sexual identity, unfulfilled fantasies and the thirst for fame. Freely inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless fables and the anecdotes drawn from his life and writings, this deeply human one-man performance weaves the compelling story of a Québécois songwriter in Paris whose travels and chance encounters take him on a voyage of self-discovery and understanding.

the andersen Project contains content that is intended for mature audiences only.

Woyzeck on the Highveld – handspring Puppet Company

Friday April 1 at 8 PM Saturday April 2 at 8 PM

Based on the play by Georg Büchner Directed by William Kentridge Designed by Adrian Kohler & William Kentridge

Against an arresting backdrop of animated projections, spectacular life-size puppets play out Georg Büchner’s famed tale of jealousy and murder in Handspring’s heart-stopping South African multi-media fantasy. In this artful adaptation, Woyzeck – a central text in 20th-century theater – weaves a magical spell filled with humor and pathos. Collaborating with William Kentridge, one of the world’s most renowned artists and filmmakers, the Cape Town-based Handspring Puppet Company first appeared in Chapel Hill in 2005 with Tall Horse, and return to Memorial Hall on the heels of their London smash hit War Horse.

Wednesday, February 16 at 7:30 PM

Welcome to the blues. With David “Honeyboy” Edwards on board, Blues at the Crossroads connects straight back to the Robert Johnson legend – Edwards was playing with him the night he died. The evening picks up the thread of Johnson’s Mississippi legacy at the junction of US Highways 61 & 49 – the very crossroads where, as folklore would have it, Robert Johnson’s burning desire pushed him to make his deal with the devil, giving up his soul to write the most haunting blues the world had ever heard. Featuring David “Honeyboy” Edwards, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Hubert Sumlin, and Cedric Burnside & Lightnin’ Malcolm.

Friday, February 18 at 8 PM

The prophet of Latin jazz, nine-time Grammy Award winner Eddie Palmieri blazes his own distinctive musical path around the world. A powerhouse innovator, this pianist, bandleader, composer, arranger, producer and pioneer of contemporary salsa revolutionized Latin music with his infectious sound. With 36 albums to his name and more than 50 years as a bandleader, his restless, instinctive playing is rooted in Cuban music and influenced by jazz luminaries such as Art Tatum, Bobby Timmons, Bill Evans, Horace Silver, Bud Powell and McCoy Tyner.

This performance is part of the 34th annual Carolina Jazz Festival.

Saturday, February 26 at 8 PM

Named “the next world music superstar” by London’s The guardian, this bewitching, goosebump-inducing Israeli interprets the most haunting songs of her Judeo-Spanish heritage. One of the finest singers of the Middle East, Yasmin Levy draws on a bottomless reserve of emotional depth and beauty, singing in Spanish and the ancient Ladino language of Sephardic Jews as she blends her own mixture of flamenco, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Sephardic Jewish traditions. With appearances at the international festivals WOMEX (World Music Expo) and WOMAD (World of Music, Arts and Dance), she is establishing herself as one of the great divas of world music.

This performance takes place in our loading Dock configuration, with audiences and artists sharing the Memorial Hall stage. Seating for this performance is limited, and directions will be distributed with ticket purchases.

Phil Kline’s John the Revelator with lionheart and ethel

Tuesday, March 22 at 7:30 PM

From boombox symphonies to chamber music and song cycles, Phil Kline’s eclectic work has been praised for its subversive subtext, wry humor, originality, and sheer allure. Inspired by the great Son House version of Blind Willie Johnson’s gospel-blues song, John the Revelator is an evening-length choral Mass for renowned early music vocal group Lionheart with the idiosyncratic string quartet Ethel. Suggesting redemption in a blighted world, Kline chooses texts by Samuel Beckett and David Shapiro along with passages from the Old Testament, bookending the Mass with treatments of two early American shape-note hymns from The sacred Harp – vestiges of an unforgettable and mysterious beauty.

This performance takes place in our loading Dock configuration, with audiences and artists sharing the Memorial Hall stage. Seating for this performance is limited, and directions will be distributed with ticket purchases.

Idolized among fans of African music, jazz, hip hop and funk, drumming icon Tony Allen is one of Africa’s most important artists, inspiring generations of musicians around the world. Alongside Fela Kuti, with whom he collaborated for 15 years, he pioneered the hard-driving, funk-infused, politically insurrectionary Afrobeat style that dominates African popular music.

Among the most celebrated musicians of the past quarter century, three-time Grammy Award winner Branford Marsalis has appeared with jazz giants such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock and Sonny Rollins. Born into one of the country’s most distinguished musical families, he gained initial acclaim with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and his brother Wynton’s quintet before forming his own ensemble. Equally at home on the stages of the world’s greatest jazz clubs and classical music venues, he is known for his innovative spirit and broad musical scope. He performs here with the hard-hitting North Carolina Jazz Repertory Orchestra, led by James Ketch, professor and director of jazz studies at UNC-Chapel Hill.
