Fall 2014 Preview

Tickets for fall performing arts and film events now on sale.

Our 25th anniversary celebration is almost underway. Peruse the full list of events and pick out your faves. Not a member? Join here.

Our season’s signature programs include Edinburgh Festival hit The Events, featuring Columbus’s community choir Harmony Project alongside the outstanding UK-based cast; Landfall, the first collaboration between Laurie Anderson and the Kronos Quartet; the US premiere of Rising, an acclaimed solo program by British dance sensation Aakash Odedra, and New Society, from performance artist and writer Miranda July—plus great Next@Wex and jazz performances. Our film/video program is rife with can’t-miss events this fall, including visits from Catherine Breillat, one of France’s most significant and controversial contemporary filmmakers; Terry Zwigoff, appearing in conversation; Beth B, presenting her documentary on underground burlesque; and Jodie Mack, here to introduce her thrilling experimental animations. Our Film/Video Theater will also play host to Alloy Orchestra, providing a live score to a restoration of Buster Keaton’s beloved comedy, The General; a 4K restoration of the ultimate Spaghetti Western, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly; and a riveting 3D presentation of Charlie Victor Romeo, based on a theatrical production shown at the Wex in 2002. Get your tickets now.
