This week, Front Range audiences have a chance to watch a new collaboration with Hal Aqua and the Lost Tribe – a union that sprang organically from the spring 2013 production of A Journey of the Human Spirit.
“We’re really excited to be working with Garrett Ammon and Wonderbound. (Artistic Director) Garrett’s dedication to thinking outside the box and working beyond boundaries is exactly in sync with our approach to traditional klezmer music, which we use as a beginning point to explore themes of spirituality and earthiness, and love in its many forms.” said Hal Aqua, leader of The Lost Tribe.
If you are in the Colorado Springs area, or are up for a short evening drive, Wonderbound will be performing this work in addition to yet another world-premier, set to the composition of Israeli-American artist Ofer Ben-Amots. Both works differ greatly from one another, yet offer a celebration of Jewish culture and heritage with a modern twist. There’s really nothing in the Front Range quite like it. And – it’s free.
Thursday evening’s performance is at Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center, 825 N Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. For more information on the venue, call (719) 389-6607.
The rest of the season will be just as kickass – with A Gothic Folktale, featuring new choreography, music collaborations, and an illusionist, starting off the official season Oct 18-27. The Nutcracker will bop around come Christmas time, and February will see Love Feb. 14-16 with the Confluence String Quartet. The spring brings Gone West, April 4-13, a new work featuring The Light House Writers Workshop.
The preview for Thursday night’s performance at Wonderbound has sold out! However, a preview for A Gothic Folk Tale will premier Oct. 4, at the RiNO dance space, with $30 seats for non-subscribers and $25 seats for subscribers. Reserve today for this and all upcoming performances by calling (303) 292-4700.
