Complicite: <i>The Encounter</i>
2016-17 UMS
Complicite: The Encounter
In 1969,National Geographic photographer Loren McIntyre became hopelessly lost in a remote part of the Brazilian rainforest while searching for the Mayoruna people.

His encounter tested his perception of the world, bringing the limits of human consciousness into startling focus. Threading scenes of his own life with details of McIntyre's journey, Complicité artistic director Simon McBurney incorporates objects and sound effects into this solo performance to evoke a rainforest landscape. Transmitted directly to the audience through provided headphones, the show’s groundbreaking technology and sound design plugs into the power of the imagination, questioning our perceptions of time, communication, and our own consciousness. McBurney transports us into the humid depths of the Amazon, its intense soundscape a new approach to site-specific theater.

Sanam Marvi
2016-17 UMS
Sanam Marvi

With compelling interpretations that draw deeply from one of the world’s great music traditions, Sanam Marvi is Pakistan’s next inspiring diviner of South Asia’s Sufi texts. A vocal warrior for tolerance and peace, this contemporary daughter of the Sindh province is a brilliant interpreter of South Asia’s spiritual, folk, and classical poetry. Her performances balance immediacy and elegant ornamentation, lending new light to her well-loved repertoire of sufi, ghazal, qawwali, and folk songs. An in-demand performer too rarely heard outside émigré circles, she makes her first extended tour to the US.

Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer & Chris Thile
2016-17 UMS
Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer & Chris Thile

This special concert at the end of UMS’s season brings together three artists who have been collaborating for the better part of a decade, most notably on the bestselling recording The Goat Rodeo Sessions.

YoYo Ma’s multi-faceted career is a testament to his continual search for new ways to communicate with audiences and to his personal desire for artistic growth and renewal. Here, he is joined by mandolinist Chris Thile (Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek) and bass virtuoso Edgar Meyer for a special concert that brings together three string virtuosos who come from wildly different backgrounds yet excel in virtually all genres.

They pool their talents for a fresh, new perspective on the brilliantly conceived music by the titan of the German Baroque, Johann Sebastian Bach. The Program includes transcriptions of excerpts from The Art of the Fugue and various keyboard works, as well as organ and viola da gamba trio sonatas. This concert is currently available only to subscribers; remaining tickets go on sale on August 15, 2016.
