Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts has announced an exciting 2022-23 schedule of in-person and livestreamed performances and lectures.

The Quick’s newly announced 2022-23 season features live performances by jazz artists Preservation Jazz Hall Band and Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour. Premiere events include the opera Nehanda by nora chipaumire and The Stranger by theatre-maker Brett Bailey. Internationally acclaimed artists are scheduled to take the stage at the Quick, including the U.K.’s Kingdom Choir, Israeli-based Vertigo Dance, and Montreal’s own Cirque Alfonse.

The acclaimed Open VISIONS Forum will return to the Kelley Theatre stage with live lecture events headlined by Judy Woodruff, Carl Bernstein, Frances Haugen, Evelyn Tribole, Bret Stephens, Rev. Naomi Tutu, Nick Gillespie and Bhaskar Sunkara, among others.

The Quick is offering the best ticket prices in town to make all events accessible. Live performance and lecture tickets are only $30, or $20 for Quick Members. “This season offers unbelievable performances at unmatched prices, with U.S. premieres of circus, theatre, and opera,” said the Quick’s Executive Director Peter Van Heerden. “Become a part of this exciting season.”

Fall season performance highlights include, but are not limited to:

  • Nehanda by nora chipaumire (Friday, Sept. 23): This immersive, participatory, and durational spectacle is a communal experience where the audience can collectively perform and investigate the process of lawmaking and its crucial role in the European colonial project.
  • Mariachi Herencia de México with Lupita Infante (Friday, Sept. 30): Cuando México Canta features a Latin Grammy-nominated group of young Mexican-American mariachi musicians, joined by multiple Grammy-nominated star Lupita Infante, granddaughter of Mexican icon Pedro Infante.
  • The Stranger (Wednesday, Oct. 5 & Thursday, Oct. 6): South African-born playwright, designer, and director Brett Bailey uses performance to interrogate the dynamics of the postcolonial world, highlighting the blind, forgotten, broken, and voiceless.
  • Preservation Hall Jazz Band (Friday, Nov. 4): Founded in New Orleans by tuba player Allan Jaffein the early 1960s, the band derives its name from Preservation Hall in the French Quarter and will celebrate its 60th anniversary on this tour.

In addition to the robust new season’s live and in-person events, the Quick will also present livestreamed programs on its virtual platform, The Quick Live. Many of these virtual programs are free of charge, including those offered by the MFA program’s Inspired Writers Series, the Fairfield University Art Museum, the Frederickson Family Innovation Lab, and the Fairfield University DiMenna-Nyselius Library.
