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.
