THEATER OF WAR PRODUCTINOS: ANTIGONE IN FERGUSON
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
Both compelling theatre and searing social justice project, Antigone in Ferguson is a radical and unlikely staging of Sophocles’ classic tragedy, conceived in response to the 2014 killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Antigone’s themes of integrity and human folly, set down in the fifth century BCE, resonate through the ages, illuminating the recent clash between public authorities and American citizens as they call for justice in police brutality cases. Bryan Doerries, author of The Theater of War: What Ancient Greek Trgedies Can Teach Us Today, directs this timely adaptation.  62 Center

TERO SAARINEN COMPANY: MORPHED
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
Tero Saarinen, one of the world’s most renowned contemporary choreographers, brings his  powerful and expressive style to Morphed, a new work with music by Esa-Pekka Salonen. A band of seven men seduce, demand, and swagger, with both music and movement ranging from brutally aggressive to meditatively soft and minimalistic. Saarinen has written an all-male piece only once before: 1996’s watershed Westward Ho. In his words, “Eighteen years on, I felt the need to bring together men of various ages and dance backgrounds, this time to address themes such as change and sensuality.” 62 Center

Williamstown, 7:30 p.m.
What’s the difference between theatre and performance art' When do objects “act” better than actors' Why is Kendall Jenner imitating Yoko Ono' Join us for a new collaboration between the Theatre Department and Williams College Museum of Art that aims to investigate the history (and histrionics) of performance art. Accompanied by the gallery exhibition Active Ingredients: Prompts, Props, Performance—featuring art objects that “perform”—A People’s History of Performance Artconjures a series of tableaux-vivants (living pictures) based on iconic photographs of archival performance art works by artists such as Yves Klein, Carolee Schneemann, Chris Burden, Yoko Ono, Adrian Piper, Tehching Hsieh, and Marina Abramovic. Reversing the dichotomy of performance as “live” and objects as “dead,” A People’s History of Performance Artflips the script to reveal how art can sometimes seem more alive than people. 62 Center
