In true ArtsEmerson fashion, our ninth season springs from a diversity of styles, voices and cultures; telling new and classic stories that illuminate the contemporary moment. Again, we welcome artists from around the world to our three stages who help us see more clearly what keeps us apart, what knits us together and what animates our dreams. There will be laughter and tears. There will be wonder and beauty. Spend enough of this next season with us and you too will envision a thriving world that is fueled by empathy and ignited by art.
