A workshop production leading to the Arena Stage premiere of

The Grand Parade (of the 20th Century)
By Double Edge Theatre
Conceived and directed by Stacy Klein
Co-created by the Double Edge ensemble
Composed by Alexander Bakshi

To reserve now, CLICK HERE, e-mail tickets@performancekitchen.org  or call 443.690.4053.

As part of a developmental residency hosted and presented by Baltimore Performance Kitchen, Double Edge Theatre will be sharing its process and a workshop version of The Grand Parade (of the 20th Century). Before it has its world premiere at Arena Stage in February 2013, audiences get an opportunity to see the first iteration of the work, which is a visual feast with actors and set pieces flying and moving.

Double Edge’s distinct imagining of the American Century is being conceived through the lens of Marc Chagall (1887-1985), and explores how the epic events and iconic characters of the 20th century inform the realities in which we now live. Following the residency in Baltimore, the work will continue to be developed in Chicago, followed by the premiere in Washington, DC at Arena Stage, and then presentations in Russia.

Double Edge Theatre is America’s premier laboratory theatre company. Located on a sprawling farm in Ashfield, MA, Double Edge Theatre sometimes takes years to create an original piece of theatre. Double Edge Theatre is led by Stacy Klein, a native of Baltimore. Join us for a unique chance to witness one of the final stages of the work before it premieres.

3 GREAT EVENTS @ THE RED ROOM THIS WEEKEND

upcoming eventA NIGHT OF SOLOS
featuring emerging Baltimore artists

WHEN: Friday, November 30, 8:30 PM
WHERE:
The Red Room,  425 E. 31st Street Baltimore
ADMISSION: $5

The Red Room continues its mission to spotlight inspired local emerging artists with a night of experimental solos.

Featuring:
Kelvin Pittman on Saxophone
Will Schorre – Synthesizer
Jesse Haas – Saxophone
Beth Brown – Electronics
Peter Tran - Guitar Synthesizer
Derrick Michaels - Saxophone

Short solo sets by an extremely varied and spirit group of emerging improvisors who come highly recommended by the Red Room.


Flandrew Fleisenberg and Neil Feather & Peter B
A duo of unconventional improvisors: Neil Feather and Flandrew Fleisenberg.

WHEN: Saturday, December 1, 8:30 PM
ADMISSION:
$6

Making new friends is a major part of the Red Room related festival High Zero. Feather and Fleisenberg hit it off and decided they needed to play together. So, tonight two men with great enthusiasm for experimental music willfully collaborate to make some of the wobbliest, the buzziest, the clangiest, and the boingiest music that has ever happened at the Red Room.

PB: Peter Blasser plays the Plumbutter.
This same night, you can see Peter Blasser performing on his brand new, handmade-for-your-Holliday-gifting, drum and drama machine: Plumbutter. For a preview of what this instrument can do, see his website.

Flandrew Fleisenberg plays percussion on an assortment of everyday ephemera and modified drum parts that he has reduced and eroded through a process of playing and breaking them. A graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston with a focus in conceptual art, he is musically self-taught and has developed a cadre of idiosyncratic techniques that are all his own. Flandrew has been involved in the improvised and creative music community since 2001 performing solo, in ad-hoc improv groupings and in set projects. Additionally, he organizes an ongoing series of performances at the flopera house in Boston. lifeoffleisenberg.blogspot.com

Sound Mechanic Neil Feather has been creating radical and unusual musical instruments for thirty years, and is increasingly known outside of Baltimore as one of the most original musical thinkers of his day. His instruments each embody uniquely clever acoustic and engineering principles, and are visually arresting. The music he plays on the instruments is equally original, embodying new principles and resulting in a nearly alien idiom of music. A founding member of THUS and THE OFFICIAL PROJECT, as well as the leader of AEROTRAIN, he has a long history of collaborative projects and solo concerts.
www.neilfeather.org/

Peter Blasser was introduced to "the maestro" in a fourth grade assembly. This kind conductor of the micro-kid band introduced the wind instruments available and Peter chose the tuba because it was the least practical. His parents put up with its bellows until high school when he diversified to banjo. Unallowed to purchase an Ud, Peter built one in the basement, thus beginning his career of "I will interface with reality by building a sound object." ciat-lonbarde.net

About Mount Clare Museum House

Minutes from the Inner Harbor, Centuries Away!  This National Historic Landmark is one of the finest examples of a Maryland Georgian country estate, built in 1760 by Charles Carroll, Barrister.  As Baltimore’s oldest house, Mount Clare sits majestically in historic Carroll Park in southwest Baltimore.  Original family furnishings depict the grand style of 18th century colonial living.  The mansion was preserved and furnished by the Maryland Society of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America and became Maryland’s first house museum in 1917.  The Mount Clare Stable was originally built as a stable for the Baltimore City Police Horses in 1910.  The space has been adapted for year round use and available as a rental space and education center.

The museum is open for guided tours on the hour, Thursday through Sunday beginning at 11 AM, last tour at 3 PM.   General Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $4 for students (2-12).

ROUND OUT THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER @ GERMANO’S TRATTORIA WITH A TRIBUTE TO CHARLIE BYRD

A TRIBUTE TO CHARLIE BYRD
with Nate Najar, Chuck Redd and Tommy Cecil    

WHEN: Friday, November 30, at 7:30 PM
WHERE:
Germano’s Trattoria, 300 S. High Street, Baltimore
TICKETS: $20 cover. $20 food/drink minimum

This evening with fingerstyle jazz guitarist Nate Najar (right), accompanied by bassist Tommy Cecil (bottom) and drummer/vibraphonist Chuck Redd (center). will showcase Najar’s melodic interpretations in tribute to Charlie Byrd.

A student of guitar and piano innovators like Barney Kessel, Django Reinhardt, Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans—Najar considers musicality central to his compositions and performances. Seeing the acoustic guitar as a piano, he elicits remarkably rich and unique sounds, a result of his ongoing mastery of the finger-style nylon string technique for the classical jazz guitar.

Najar will also debut selections from a new jazz album set to launch in early 2012, celebrating the music and influence of Charlie Byrd. The night will be infused with references to swinging jazz, a healthy dose of Duke Ellington and the rich Brazilian rhythms of Antonio Carlos Jobim.

“The music of Chuck Redd and Nate Najar was beguilingly timeless and truly evocative of Charlie Byrd,” noted one reviewer of the well received 2011 Labor Day performance at the Monty Alexander Jazz Festival in Easton, Maryland.

NEW “BMA Go Mobile” ART GUIDE DEBUTS WITH CONTEMPORARY WING REOPENING

Personalized Experience Lets Users Search & Share Contemporary Art Favorites

Block 3BMA GO MOBILE

Beginning on Wednesday, November 14, The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) launches an exciting new way to explore its newly renovated contemporary wing with BMA Go Mobile (www.artbma.org/gomobile), an innovative personalized mobile art guide with rich information and fresh perspectives on more than 100 objects

Like having the BMA in your pocket, BMA Go Mobile is a mobile website that is available anywhere, anytime, and on any device—including iPhones, Android, and Blackberry smartphones. Using the latest technologies, BMA Go Mobile expands upon the museum experience with content about every artwork on view in the contemporary wing, plus 33 exclusive video and audio interviews with artists, curators, and Baltimore-area experts. What makes the guide distinctive is that users are able to search by artwork, artist, era, or gallery, and can create their own connections through the curated content. The ability to save favorites, view later, or share with friends via social media like Facebook and Twitter also enhances both the on-site and post-museum experience.

“The Baltimore Museum of Art is in an exciting period of transformation that will engage 21st-century audiences with its internationally recognized collection in innovative and exciting new ways,” said Museum Director Doreen Bolger. “I am delighted that the BMA is expanding visitors’ access to the contemporary collection through this extraordinary resource.”

Highlights of BMA Go Mobile include commentary from artists Oliver Herring, Thomas Hirschhorn, and Joyce Scott, as well as Gertrude’s Chef John Shields, architect Diane Cho, and other participants. WYPR radio host Tom Hall narrates the guide and Baltimore-based musicians Lucas Lechowski, Jake Leckie, and Yeveto created original compositions to further enhance the mobile experience. Gallery maps and floor plans help visitors navigate their own self-created tours. Complimentary iPod Touches are also available for museum visitors to check out during their visit.

The BMA’s newly renovated contemporary wing reopens on November 18, completing the first phase of its $24.5 million renovation.  Visitors will discover 16 refreshed and revitalized galleries showcasing masterworks by Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol alongside more than a dozen new acquisitions created by established and emerging artists working today. Highlights of the project include a major architectural intervention by artist Sarah Oppenheimer; three new exhibitions; a new black box gallery for light, sound, and moving image works; two new interactive galleries; and, of course, the museum’s first mobile art guide for the collection. 

BMA Go Mobile was developed by the museum’s Deputy Director of Education Anne Manning and Manager of Interpretation Gamynne Guillotte in partnership with Cogapp, a technology group that specializes in building websites, interactive installations, and next-generation mobile applications for museums. Sandy Goldberg, an independent media writer and producer, developed the video and audio content. BMA Go Mobile will expand with content for the American and African collections in 2014.

SPECTACULAR CABARET MARKS WORLD AIDS DAY @ CREATIVE ALLIANCE

World AIDS Day 
with "Hedwig" Star, John Waters' Mink Stole & More in Spectacular Cabaret

WHEN: Friday, November 30, 8 PM
WHERE:
Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave., Baltimore
ADMISSION: $20, $15 members
PURCHASE TICKETS HERE

Adam Cooley, star of our hugely successful run of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," directs and sings in a thoughtfully-curated evening of Broadway, pop, rock' n' roll and original tunes sung by some of Baltimore's most talented vocalists. Also included are readings from the pandemic and discussion of exciting research developments. A reception follows, with hors d'ouevres by Clementine at the Creative Alliance.

Joining Cooley is film actress Mink Stole, famous for her work with John Waters in films ranging from the hit Hairspray to cult classic Pink Flamingos; Joseph Ritch's creation Sunrize Highway, a loving satire of the great divas interspersed with whimsical reflections, winsome musings, sage advice, cautionary tales and insightful showbiz stories; and Baltimore native Quae Simpson, who has been performing for the past 20 years nationally and internationally, from the Mid-Atlantic to Western China.

Johns Hopkins' Dr. Rupali Limaye and AIDS Action Baltimore founder Lynda Dee speaks with the audience afterwards. Limaye worked as director of HIV Global Programs at Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication. AIDS Action Baltimore recently celebrated 25 years of providing educational, financial, and emotional support for people with HIV and HIV prevention services in the Baltimore metropolitan area.

Other performers include Alexis Holzer, who backed up Cooley's Hedwig in the band, and Tenley Spatz, who provides a reading.

World AIDS Day was established by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1988 to remember the epidemic. The theme in 2012 is "Getting to Zero," referencing the UNAIDS vision of "Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS-related deaths."

Creative Alliance is Baltimore's premier multi-genre arts center, presenting over 200 events a year in film, music, workshops, and visual art in its theater, art galleries, bar/restaurant, classrooms, and live/work spaces for artists.
