COLOSSAL
Rolling World Premiere

By ANDREW HINDERAKER
Directed by WILL DAVIS

WHEN: September 3-28
WHERE:
Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab, Olney Theatre Center, 2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Rd., Olney

Sure to be the “must-see” new play of 2014, COLOSSAL is an extraordinary story of emotional and physical endurance, love, and family. Structured like a football game (performed in four quarters with a pre-show training session and half-time show), COLOSSAL tells in vivid, physical flashback the story of Young Mike, a college football player who took a hit in a game that left left him paralyzed from the waist down. Mike now relives the memory of his accident with the help of a live nine-person football squad onstage, finally confronting his demons in the play’s extremely powerful and uplifting conclusion.

 

  • Featuring Michael Patrick Thornton, star of ABC's Grey's Anatomy spin-off Private Practice.
  • Winner of the Kennedy Center’s Jean Kennedy Smith Playwriting Award.
  • Recipient of a 2014 Edgerton FoundationNew American Plays award.

(Recommended for ages 14 and up)

SCORE TICKETS

Don't miss a rare area appearance by

TRUMPETER DAVE DOUGLAS &
PIANIST URI CAINE
 

WHEN: Saturday, July 26, at 8 & 9:30 PM
ADMISSION: $25 in advance/$28 at door; Seniors: $20 in advance/$23 at door; $10 full-time students with ID

These longtime collaborators will take the stage to celebrate their first duo recording, Present Joys: Songs, Hymns & Improvisations Inspired by The Sacred Harp & The Shape Note Tradition.

The tradition of shape-note singing has been passed down for centuries in tune books like The Sacred Harp and Ye Olde New England Psalm-Tunes, allowing groups of untrained and unrehearsed singers to participate in gorgeous four-part harmonies. A uniquely American art form that’s deceptively simple, emotionally moving, and profoundly communal.

Present Joys, due to be released on July 22, brings Douglas and Caine together for an intimate but exploratory outing inspired by the Sacred Harp tradition. The pair take on five pieces from shape-note tunebooks as well as several new Douglas compositions undertaken in the same vein. These ten pieces engage Douglas’ trumpet and Caine’s piano in a captivating conversation full of memorable melodies and intricate digressions.

3 SONIC ALCHEMISTS DO THEIR THING @ THE RED ROOM TUESDAY NIGHT

Red Room Tuesday: Jason Lescalleet, Terence Hannum and Charles Dube

WHEN: Tuesday, July 22, doors at 8:30, show at 9:00 PM
WHERE:
The Red Room, 425 E. 31ST STREET, BALTIMORE, located in
Normals Books and Records
TICKETS: $6

Three sonic alchemists do their thing their way at the Red Room!

A few words about Mr. Lescalleet from Minister of Information Ben Kudler:
'Misunderstandings, half baked conclusions, and a wide array of idiocy surrounds the productions of music without melody, especially in the United States. Jason Lescalleet is an ...United Statesian, an American, artist. These sort of wandering and wholly stupid gripes of his audience could, in some, possibly idiotic, way be called his instrument. Shrouded in mystery and an explosive earnestness and clarity, Lescalleet engineers his music, using the space he is recording or performing in, as well as the minor rooms of the listener's body and expectations.

His two most recent major releases, "Songs About Nothing" and with Graham Lambkin, "Photographs" (a mysterious exploration through the recording process of the record and the two artist's parallel lives), Lescalleet has inserted tricks, trapdoors, false exits and a large constellation of heavily crafted secrets that in their discovery allow the listener to challenge one's own perception of the music. The aforementioned earnestness and clarity is seen in his use of recordings from his life, moments of joy and sadness—although both these words do not do justice to the emotional complexity Lescalleet weaves in his recordings can be seen through sampling his daughter singing to his dying father on "The Pilgrim" and the elegantly simple titled albums, "This Is What I Do" and "Electronic Music."

Further evidence of clarity and earnestness is found in references and whole sale sampling of beloved recordings (Big Black, Brian Eno, Robert Ashley, Tony Conrad, Miley Cyrus, Die Antwoord and many more). And this is just his solo music, because, he is playing solo, at this event, after all. Longer t reatises and voyages through his unique sonic landscape could be written about his collaborations with Joe Colley, Nmperign (Greg Kelley and Bhob Rainey), Graham Lambkin, Aaron Dilloway, and more.

Phew! More from the horse's mouth here: http://lescalleet.wordpress.com/

Terence Hannum, Sondheim semi-finalist and member of avant-metal unit Locrian, has made a splash locally since relocating from Chicago. 

Vids here: http://vimeo.com/user2302429

 

High Zero's 2014 poster child Charles Dube is one of Baltimore's most slyly subversive and least classifible musicians.  He is a member of late, great synthesizer trio Hobo's Greed, stalwart of the local noise/experimental scene and resident at Tribal House, one of its last unsanctioned bastions.  Although he is no stranger to the Red Room, it is impossible to predict what flavor of interesting we will be delectating this night.
