Artistic and executive director Rob Bailis and BroadStage board of directors chair Jennifer Diener announce the 2022-2023 BroadStage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center season with 33 offerings, including three world premieres: Mark Morris Dance Group’s “The Look of Love: An Evening of Dance to the Music of Burt Bacharach” (Oct. 20-23); “Being Future Being,” a multi-disciplinary work by choreographer of Yup’ik descent Emily Johnson / Catalyst (Sept. 8-10); and Barak Ballet’s first full evening ballet “Memoryhouse,” set to composer Max Richter’s album of the same name (June 15-17, 2023). “The Look of Love” and “Being Future Being” are co-commissioned by BroadStage, which was highly instrumental in the creation of these two works.
The season also includes two West Coast Premieres: “seven methods of killing kylie jenner” by Jasmine Lee-Jones, The Royal Court Theatre production presented in association with Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company (March 23-26, 2023); and with a blend of clowning, puppetry and plain old theatrical magic, “Dimanche” from Company Chaliwaté & Focus (April 13-16, 2023). “Dimanche” paints a witty and tender portrait of humanity. As a family, somewhere in the near future, surprised by the uncontrollable forces of nature, is about to spend their Sunday together as strong winds and torrential rains rage outside.
As BroadStage approaches 15 years of offering dynamic performances to an ever-broadening audience, its future is sound thanks in large part to a $10 million gift from The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation. This contribution to BroadStage’s endowment will not only support the organization’s operations and programming, but also encourage others to help grow BroadStage’s reach and impact.
Ticket packages of three or more attractions of the season and Nat Geo Live are available at a substantial discount and benefits are now on sale at broadstage.org or (310)434-3200. Due to the limited capacity of many performances, audiences are encouraged to buy early for the best seating and prices. BroadStage is located at 1310 Eleventh St., Santa Monica.
