Ages:

0-3

Location:

PlaySpace


Painting

Touch the paint with your fingers. Try using a brush. Explore shapes, colors and textures. Stand up. Sit down. Paint on the window or on the floor and exercise different muscles.

In the Messy Sensory Area in PlaySpace, toddlers do the important work of exploring the world and themselves through hands-on activities. The area is perfect for toddlers to explore all kinds of sensory materials from paint to shaving cream, playdough and water. Activities are carefully designed to support toddlers curiosity and the development of fundamental skills. We use washable, non-toxic materials so everyone can enjoy the fun of making a mess!

Tips for doing Messy activities at Boston Children's Museum:

  • Follow your childs lead and feel free to visit the area multiple times. It could be your childs first time exploring paint or cornstarch. and it takes time to develop confidence and be comfortable.
  • We have smocks available for both children and grownups. Pack an extra shirt and pants for full-body exploration.
  • Talk to our experienced staff.We are available for tips and ideas to try at home.

The area may be closed briefly for cleaning in the middle of the day.

HoverDive
Join the Okeanos Collective-choreographer Courtney Peix, composer Amber Vistein, costume designer Jennifer Varekamp, and scientist Larry Pratt-for the full-length premiere of HoverDive, a new evening-length work confronting our relationship to the ocean though dance. For HoverDive, choreographer and Artistic Director of Contrapose Dance, Courtney Peix creates a stunning and unexpected movement vocabulary inspired by both principles of fluid dynamics-turbulence, entropy, chaos (all elements of scientist Larry Pratt's work), and the movement patterns of ocean life-schooling, drifting, diving, and striking. Throughout the development of this work, Courtney has worked closely with Larry Pratt to understand his research, integrating ideas of wave dynamics, eddies, molecular movement in turbulence, and patterning vs. chaos. She achieves an impressive balance of vulnerability and power, reverence and curiosity, joy and anxiety all familiar facets of our collective experience of the ocean. The piece is exquisitely performed by the Contrapose Dance dancers: Nina Brindamour, Amy Caine, Maggie Foster, Molly Schwartz, Tony Tucker, Max Auger, Naoko Brown, and Jessica Smith. Inspired by both underwater field recordings (generously provided by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) and the role of bioluminescence as a kind of underwater telegraphy, composer Amber Vistein, reimagines the ocean as a site of complex interactions and highly codified systems of communication similar to a royal court. This led her to incorporate rhythmic models from Baroque court dances while melding the haunting sounds of the field recordings with a rich pallet of orchestral instruments. The result is a hybrid acoustic geography including an elegant underwater Sarabande and an energetic, aquatic Courante. In the creation of the costumes, designer Jenn Varekamp set her parameters to use only sustainable textiles, minimize waste, and hand dye all the textiles using natural dyes to limit environmental impact. She gives form to inspiration drawn from imagery of the impacts of ocean acidification on coral reefs, frozen landscapes on the ocean's floor, the movement of schooling fish, and the colors and textures of underwater life including, jellyfish and bioluminescence. It may seem counterintuitive to address a subject as vast as the ocean and an issue of such immense scope as climate change through dance but it's that very intuition that makes the project most necessary. Using the human bodythe most familiar and comprehensible of formsto tackle issues of this scale is to bring that 'vastness' into our realm of understanding; an understanding that is not only abstract, but felt. The Okeanos Collective hopes you will join us for a unique evening of dance that merges art and science to present a collaboration of four unique visions into one. *All photos by Larry Pratt copyright 2014

Babydriver - Doug Tuttle, ABADABAD
This event is 21 and over
Babydriver


Formed in Boston, Massachusettes in 2008, Baby Driver plays songs written and sung by Tommy Palmer. Freddy Hamel (bass), Chris Mara (drums) and Davis Wimberly (everything else) round out the quartet that's become a staple around New England for it's live shows as much as for it's unique song craft.

Inspiration varies greatly throughout the band, however, Palmer has credited The Knife's Karin Dreijer Andersson and The Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt as major contemporary influences. His admiration for early blues, country and folk can be credited for the band's bare-bones approach to it's sound.

Palmer met Hamel and Mara while playing in his band, Hats & Glasses, which he formed in Boston in 2003. Mara was a founding member of the folk group Christians & Lions; and Hamel of New England-based psych outfit Mmoss, who are still active. Amidst disbandment and departures from their respective groups, the three friends decided to form an early version of what would become Baby Driver with Mara's cousin Matt on guitar.

Matt Mara left the group in 2010 after playing on their debut full-length, "Sad Soldier Red," to pursue is own band, Digsafe, and was replaced by multi-instrumentalist and Palmer's childhood friend, Davis Wimberly. Before moving back to the Boston area in 2009, Wimberly played drums and percussion for Ukulele Loki's Gadabout Orchestra based outside of Denver, Colorado while pursuing a career in music therapy.

The presence of Wimberly on Rhodes and backing vocals was welcomed in late 2010 and has certainly transformed the live sound of the band, which plans to release their (as of yet, untitled) sophomore effort in spring 2012.

Class of 1960 Lecture with Prof. Mary Hunter

Why does the Juilliard Gift Shop sell Plastic Composer Busts?

Mary Hunter, A. LeRoy Greason Professor of Music at Bowdoin, considers why classical music culture continues to include busts of composers often strikingly cheap and cheesy objects while other elite arts do not. There are many possible reasons for this, but among them is the way these objects are analogous to the ideological complications of playing classical music.

Amid a series of events bordering on farce, Garry has to deal with women who want to seduce him, placate both his long-suffering secretary and his estranged wife, cope with a crazed young playwright, and overcome his impending mid-life crisis (since he has recently turned forty).

Bubbles

Make bubbles. Pick them up. Pop them. Explore their properties. Count the bubbles. Try a bubble wand. Play!

In the Messy Sensory Area in PlaySpace, toddlers do the important work of exploring the world and themselves through hands-on activities. The area is perfect for toddlers to explore all kinds of sensory materials from paint to shaving cream, playdough and water. Activities are carefully designed to support toddlers curiosity and the development of fundamental skills. We use washable, non-toxic materials so everyone can enjoy the fun of making a mess!

Tips for doing Messy activities at Boston Children's Museum:

  • Follow your childs lead and feel free to visit the area multiple times. It could be your childs first time exploring paint or cornstarch. and it takes time to develop confidence and be comfortable.
  • We have smocks available for both children and grownups. Pack an extra shirt and pants for full-body exploration.
  • Talk to our experienced staff.We are available for tips and ideas to try at home.

The area may be closed briefly for cleaning in the middle of the day.
