A Wall for the Body, A Circle for the Soul, a Fruit for your Memory

Interdisciplinary Arts Collective presents a wall for the body, a circle for the soul, a fruit for your memory. Inspired by Jeanette Winterson’s novel Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, WALL/CIRCLE/FRUIT is a queer experiment in memory as myth-making, the scriptures we write to understand our own past, and the crossing of thresholds. The show takes place in a steel fabrication workshop and is structured around John Cage’s Musicircus – a 1967 composition written for “any number of performers willing to perform in the same place at the same time.” The musicians, dancers, poets, actors, and artists of IAC are by turns dispersed and coalesced throughout the workshop. The audience is free to travel between the performances at will and build their own experience of the piece through their unique intersections of time, space, sight, and sound. - Admission: pay-what-you-can, with all proceeds going directly to the artists

Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story

This boppin’ musical tells the true story of Buddy’s spectacular rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when ‘That’ll Be The Day’ hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on “The Day The Music Died”. The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including ‘That’ll Be The Day’, ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘Everyday’, ‘Oh Boy’, ‘Not Fade Away’, ‘Rave On’ and ‘Raining In My Heart’, Plus Ritchie Valens’ ‘La Bamba’ and the Big Bopper’s ‘Chantilly Lace’. The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock & roll, continues to live on in Buddy. Buddy will have you on your feet and “send you out of the theater on an unstoppable high” (the Boston Globe).
