Program for the Evening

Performance in Calderwood
Choreographer-in-Residence Peter DiMuro has created a work, approximately 20 minutes long, that expands the detail and intimacy of the Palace guided tours. As partial inspiration, Peter is using the aftermath of the infamous theft of 13 works of art in 1990 from the Museum: though the missing elements were thought necessary for beauty to remain, what remains is still beautiful, and becomes newly beautiful, differently beautiful. 

In the Studio
Our social fabric is tightly spun—join Boston Ballet's costume shop fabric painter and dyer Shane Maxwell in a nontraditional tapestry-weaving workshop. Learn basic weaving techniques and get introduced to the latest take on fiber arts. 

Music in the Courtyard
L'Duke, "DJ of the Year" nominee for the 2018 Boston Music Awards and resident DJ of the RISE Music Series, spins from a broad range of music throughout the decades. Inspired by Common Threads, L'Duke will add her bold open-format style and seamlessly blend her selections to create an aural ambiance.

Living Room Activities
Connect with a classic game of cat's cradle.
