FM Cultural Calendar | Starting Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Last Touch First by Jiri Kylian & Michael Schumacher
Famed choreographer Jirí Kylián (former artistic director of Nederlands Dans Theater) and expat Michael Schumacher eschew physical virtuosity for control, subtlety and timing with the intimate Last Touch First. Characters move surrealistically back in time to a 19th century Victorian atmosphere reminiscent of a Chekhov play. The dancers' meticulous movements, accentuated with extravagant costumes and scenery, create a dramatic and gripping work.

Henri Matisse: The Thousand and One Nights
This fragile visitor favorite is only on view for a limited time! Matisse's multi-panel, painted paper cut-out was created when he was 81 and confined to bed. Unable to sleep and kept alive by his drive to create, Matisse had much in common with Scheherazade, the legendary narrator of the Persian literary classic 'Arabian Nights.'
