Paradise Lost Presents: Perceptions


Friday, April 21, 2017 at 8 PM

Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 8 PM

 

Paradise Lost: A Movement Collective's Perceptions reveals stories of struggle, redemption, and compassion in their 3rd annual company showcase this spring. Improv-based choreography and theatrical techniques fuse the concepts of reality and performance, inviting audiences to witness the worlds of strangers. Perceptions asks the question, how do our experiences shape the ways in which we perceive other's realities?

A Midsummer Night's Dream by Actors Shakespeare Project


May 10 - June 4th, 2017


Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Patrick Swanson

 

“The course of true love never did run smooth.” Dashed expectations force flummoxed lovers into the mystical wilderness where enchantment and confusion await, all for our gleeful benefit.

 

“Let me play the lion too. I will roar that I will do any man’s heart good to hear me.”

NOON – 1:15 PM: John Kordalewski Trio 

 

Music reflecting the jazz traditions of three continents, John Kordalewski (United States), Carlos Pino (Colombia), and Kesivan Naidoo (South Africa) speak a common language as jazz musicians, and it is enriched by the inflections that each musician brings.  Expect some 'straight ahead jazz' as well as Colombian and South African compositions.

 

Personnel: John Kordalewski - piano; Carlos Pino – acoustic bass; Kesivan Naidoo – drums

 

 

1:30 – 2:45 PM : The Rebecca Cline Trio

 

The Rebecca Cline Trio celebrates the rich heritage of American music, taking inspiration from the classic jazz piano trios of the U.S., and from the popular music of Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Brazil. She has performed or recorded in the US and Caribbean with such artists as Giovanni Hidalgo, Pedrito Martinez, Paulo Braga, Romero Lubambo, Jerry Gonzalez, Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez, Charles Neville, and Alex Acuña.

 

Personnel: Rebecca Cline – piano; Gregory Ryan – acoustic bass; Mark Walker – drums 

 

 

3 – 4:15 PM: The Kevin Harris Project

 

When the unmistakable musical influences of Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker intersect with J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba, could one possibly conceptualize the celebration that occurs at that intersection? Jazz pianist Kevin Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to explore such a crossroad. On drums is the always in demand and always swingin’ Yoron Israel, and on acoustic bass virtuoso Will Slater.

 

Personnel:  Kevin Harris – piano; Yoron Israel – drums; Will Slater -  acoustic bass

 

 

4:30-5:45 PM: Yoron Israel Trio

 

The Yoron Israel Trio, led by renowned drummer Yoron Israel, with longtime friends and bandmates Laszlo Gardony - piano and Ron Mahdi - bass, promises to deliver an elegant, adventurous and energetic set of music.  Collectively these musicians have amassed over 20 acclaimed recordings as leaders in their own rights, including Yoron Israel’s recent project "This Moment” and “Visions – The Music of Stevie Wonder” and Laszlo Gardony’s “Live in Real Time” and "Signature Time.” Their combined musical experiences read like a who’s who in Jazz; performing, touring and recording with such luminaries as Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver, Abbey Lincoln, Ahmad Jamal, Joe Lovano, David “Fathead Newman” and Roy Haynes to name just a few.  The Trio performance will be premiering a number of new original compositions, along with works by Mary Lou Williams and Hank Jones.

 

Personnel: Yoron Israel – drums; Laszlo Gardony – piano; Ron Mahdi – acoustic bass
