ART

Theater, Life, and the Afterlife: Tomb Décor of the Jin Dynasty from Shanxi

Brick carving is a traditional folk art that was used to decorate architecture and adorn tombs, in the Shanxi region. Artisans there developed very sophisticated carving techniques such as high relief, open carving, and round carving, which transformed plain bricks into vibrant artworks. Theatrical scenes were popular subjects for brick carving in Shanxi and revealed the passion for theater and opera in this region. **FREE** Tuesday & Thursday 6pm – 8pm

DANCE/THEATER

‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore

Through March 31.

First published in 1633, John Ford’s ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore was the last of the Renaissance revenge dramas, and is one of the most controversial plays in the English theatrical canon. Siblings Giovanni and Annabella are of noble birth and madly in love. Full of the idealism of youth, their passion is all-consuming—and can only bring about their ruin. With the men of Parma ready to fight and kill for Annabella’s hand, religion, morality, and madness all collide as the brother and sister’s terrible secret is revealed. 7:30pm. $25—$80
