A Focus on Dance and Music This Week at Guild Hall

Performances by Pilobolus Dance Theater, Bebe Neuwirth, and more
Rupert Boyd, an Australian classical guitarist, and Laura Metcalf, an American cellist, of Boyd Meets Girl

Guild Hall has a lively week ahead, with performances by the internationally acclaimed Pilobolus Dance Theater, the Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress and vocalist Bebe Neuwirth, the classical musicians Boyd Meets Girl, and a sold-out talk by Misty Copeland, a principal dancer of the American Ballet Theater. 

Boyd Meets Girl, made up of Rupert Boyd, an Australian classical guitarist, and Laura Metcalf, an American cellist, will perform tomorrow evening at 8. The duo will present a variety of material, including many of their own arrangements, ranging from the Baroque to the contemporary. Their debut album, to be released on July 28, will feature the work of composers from Bach to Piazzolla. Tickets range from $20 to $45, $18 to $43 for Guild Hall members. 

Pilobolus is renowned for its unique, diverse collaborations that mix creative disciplines and its ongoing exploration of new ways to use the human body as a graphic and expressive medium. Formed in 1971, the New York company has performed in more than 65 countries, won many awards, including a prime-time Emmy, and performed at the 79th Academy Awards and on “60 Minutes,” “Oprah,” and “The Today Show,” among others.

For its 8 p.m. performance on Saturday, Pilobolus will present four pieces, including “On the Nature of Things,” which explores the body’s ability to tell stories about desire, shame, and revenge. During this piece, three dancers balance on a two-foot-wide column. Tickets are $45 to $100, $43 to $95 for members.

Next Thursday at 6:30 p.m., the “Thinking Forward” lecture series, presented by the Bridgehampton Child Care and Recreational Center and Guild Hall, will feature Ms. Copeland speaking about her life, dance, and writing. Born in Missouri and raised in California, she began studying ballet at age 13, joined A.B.T.’s studio company in 2000, and became a member of the corps de ballet in 2001. In 2007, she became a soloist, and in 2015 she was the first African-American woman in the company’s history to be named principal dancer. Ms. Copeland’s lecture is free, but reservations are required.

Ms. Neuwirth will light up the stage Friday, July 21, at 8 p.m. with an evening of story songs. She is known for her roles in Broadway shows including “A Chorus Line,” “Chicago,” and “Sweet Charity” and on the television programs “Cheers” and “Frasier.” She will present songs of musicians and composers from Stephen Sondheim to Edith Piaf, embodying a range of emotions and style. Scott Cady is the music director and will accompany on the piano. Tickets cost $55 to $150, $53 to $145 for members, and can be purchased online at guildhall.org.
