Redfern Season Preview Party (Thursday, September 12, 5 p.m., Alumni Recital Hall): Learn more about all of the Redfern’s creative offerings and get a preview of season highlights including video and live performances. The festivities begin with a catered reception.

Donal Fox Inventions Trio (Friday, September 20, 7:30 p.m., Alumni Recital Hall): Coinciding with KSC’s Parent/Family Weekend, the Redfern kicks off its season with the cool sounds of this classical jazz trio.

● Word Becomes Flesh (Wednesday, October 2, 7:30 p.m., Main Theatre): Word Becomes Flesh uses poetry, dance, hip-hop theater, and live music to document nine months of pregnancy from a young single father’s perspective. This ensemble piece fuses together tender stories, playful wit – and at times, purposeful rage – to give voice to the complexities surrounding race and gender in the U.S.

Pilobolus Dance Theatre (Tuesday, October 15, 7:30 p.m. Main Theatre): The hugely popular dance company, known for its mind-blowing performances at the Academy Awards and the Olympics, is coming back to the Redfern! And returning with Pilobolus is Keene State College alum Shawn Ahern, who has been performing with the company since his graduation in 2010.

Debo Band (Wednesday, November 6, 7:30 p.m., Alumni Recital Hall): Since their inception in 2006, Debo Band has won raves for their groundbreaking take on Ethiopian pop music, which incorporates traditional scales and vocal styles, alongside American soul and funk rhythms, and instrumentation reminiscent of high energy Eastern European brass bands.

Rebecca Stenn (Monday, January 27, 7:30 p.m. Alumni Recital Hall): 2013-14 Redfern Choreographer-in-Residence Rebecca Stenn has performed and toured throughout the world as a principal dancer with Momix and Pilobolus. Her new solo piece explores novel expressions of modern dance with live music, film, and visual art.

Cirque Alfonse (Saturday, February 1, 2 p.m., Main Theatre): This hilarious circus troupe from Quebec presents Timber! a lively folk-musical circus featuring log-walking, spoon-clacking, hatchet-juggling, clog-dancing and even hijinks on an outhouse! Celebrating their first United States tour, Timber! is a smorgasbord of family fun based on the tradition of logging camps with axes swinging through the air and logs becoming props as the performers do daring knife tricks and acrobatic feats to the toe-tapping sounds of traditional Quebecois music.

Doug Elkins Dance (Tuesday, February 4, 7:30 p.m., Main Theatre): The irreverent choreographer Doug Elkins returns to the Redfern Arts Center with the world premiere of Hapless Bizarre, featuring a merry band of dancers, actors and clowns exploring the sharp intersections between physical comedy, choreography, flirtation, and romance. Elkins, considered one of the most musical, witty and inventive choreographers of his generation, will pair this new piece with his recent hit Mo(or)town/Redux , a sensual exploration of Shakespeare’s Othello using the music of Motown and the neo-Motown sound.

Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem (Saturday, February 22, 11 a.m., Alumni Recital Hall): Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem mix traditional, original, and contemporary sounds on fiddle, guitar, bass and recycled percussion. Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem’s family show is barefoot, front-porch, tap-your-feet folk music for families, spanning 200 years of American roots music.

Sandglass Theater (Tuesday, March 4, 7:30 p.m., Main Theatre): The beloved Putney, Vermont, puppet theater returns to the Redfern with D-Generation: An Exaltation of Larks. This touching new piece explores the rich creative potential of people living with dementia. Their collective stories, told through a cast of puppets and their caretakers, creates a piece that is poetic, humorous, and quite mysterious.
