goings on about town: this week

(PHOTOGRAPH BY JOSEFINA SANTOS)This year’s DanceAfrica festival, at BAM May 24-27, is focussed on Rwanda. Although some of the events invoke the country’s 1994 genocide, the emphasis is on rebound and healing through tradition. The headlining act, Inganzo Ngari, a popular Rwandan folkloric troupe founded in 2006, performs crop rituals and a big-wigged warrior dance alongside the Brooklyn-based BAM/Restoration Dance Youth Ensemble, a festival mainstay whose spirited members (including Adia Clarke, pictured above) never fail to bring down the house.MOVIESAll Is TrueKenneth Branagh does Shakespeare, again. This time, he’s not adapting one of the plays but, rather—fully armed with a false nose and other props—taking on the role of the playwright himself. We find the Bard at the dusk of his career, leaving London—where the Globe Theatre has burned down—and…

Fifty years ago, a West Village riot struck the match of gay liberation. New York City Opera marks the anniversary with the world première of “Stonewall,” by Iain Bell and Mark Campbell, which sets the famous event to music (June 21-28). The New York Festival of Song presents two concerts on the theme. The first includes a song cycle written by a group of mostly lesbian composers; two weeks later, the revived program “Manning the Canon” highlights songs by and about gay men (L.G.B.T. Community Center, June 11 and June 25). The New York Philharmonic sounds a sombre note in John Corigliano’s Symphony No. 1, his anguished response to the epochal trauma of AIDS (May 30 and June 1). In a more antic mode, the orchestra brings a free concert…

If classical ballet is about beauty, order, and equilibrium, then Marius Petipa’s “The Sleeping Beauty” is the most classical of all. Tchaikovsky’s score provides a thrilling undertow of emotion: light, darkness, longing, and, in the end, an epic sense of scale. In his staging for American Ballet Theatre (at the Metropolitan Opera House, July 1-6), Alexei Ratmansky draws from original notations and period sketches to restore a filigree that had eroded since the ballet’s première, in St. Petersburg, in 1890.What makes Ronald K. Brown’s dances so satisfying is their deep musicality, and their humanity—each work lays out a path toward grace and spiritual renewal. At Bard SummerScape (at the Fisher Center, in Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y., July 5-7), Brown’s ensemble, Evidence, a Dance Company, will perform an updated version of one of…

Music’s communal qualities peak in the summer, as rising temperatures allow for the pleasures of outdoor concerts. Governors Ball (Randall’s Island Park, May 31-June 2) signals the official start of the season, featuring a diverse lineup that includes the irreverent rapper Tyler, the Creator, the charming English pop-rock band the 1975, and the candid R. & B. darling SZA. Hot 97’s Summer Jam (MetLife Stadium, June 2) shares the weekend, offering a roster focussed on the brilliant new generation of women in rap, from the headliner Cardi B to the slick Southern spitter Megan Thee Stallion and the rising Detroit rhymer Kash Doll. Elsewhere, rock finds a dedicated home at the inaugural ALT 92.3 Summer Open (Forest Hills Stadium, June 22-23), which showcases the manifold styles of the Lumineers, Sharon…

When the Indian artist Mrinalini Mukherjee was a graduate student in mural painting, she happened upon hand-dyed hemp rope in a Gujarat market. With no formal training in sculpture or textiles, she devised an ingenious process of knotting the fibre into towering volumes that merged the bodily and the botanical—sui-generis works that put a modernist twist on an ancient material. The artist, who died in 2015, at the age of sixty-five, is the subject of the retrospective “Phenomenal Nature,” at the Met Breuer, which also includes her later forays into ceramics and bronze. (Opens June 4.)In the late nineteen-seventies, the beloved children’s-book author Maurice Sendak embarked on a new wild rumpus—designing costumes and sets for ballets and operas. The Morgan Library, whose archives Sendak often turned to for inspiration, shares…
