Over the last several decades, artists have turned to the media of sound, movement and theater to express their ideas as they previously would have painting, sculpture, and installation. Audiences of the Broad MSU can expect to experience genre-defying music, restlessly inventive theater, site-specific dance, new directions in literature, and multi-media spectacles, not to mention social “interventions” that invite audience members to become active participants in the artistic process.

Upcoming performances and events at the Broad MSU:

The Art of Brewing: Tea, Beer, Coffee
