MONDAY NOVEMBER 12
An Evening with David Broza
His virtuosic guitar playing fuses Israeli, Spanish, and English musical influences; his flamenco rhythms blend with intricate rock-and-roll finger picking. His enduring career has been defined by over twenty-five successful albums and numerous awards.
A steadfast humanitarian, Broza has worked to spread a message of peace through his music; since 1977, he has devoted substantial attention to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Songs such as the hit “Yihye Tov” and “Belibi” – a collaboration with the Palestinian music group Sabreen – have earned the performer accolades from critics and societies including Search for Common Ground, which applauds his commitments to peace. His dedication to promoting Israeli-Spanish relations and worldwide tolerance earned Broza a Spanish royal medal of honor from King Juan Carlos I in 2009.

Yasuko Yokoshi: Bell, a work in progress
Get a sneak peek at a compelling new dance-theater work-in-progress by choreographer Yasuko Yokoshi and an international ensemble of musicians and dancers. Developed in part during an artistic residency at the University of Chicago, Bell reimagines one of the most important and difficult works in the classical Japanese kabuki theater repertoire, Kyoganoko Musume-Dojoji (A Woman and a Bell at the Dojoji Temple). Yasuko Yokoshi will create a new dance-theater work that continues her in-depth research of the parallel aesthetics of traditional and contemporary forms and the authenticity and ownership of culture. The audience will have the opportunity to experience the work in its current iteration and to participate in a Q&A with the artist after the showing.
