Stockbridge Theatre presents Miwa Matreyek, an animator, director, designer, and performer whose work blurs the line between real and unreal. Coming from a background in animation, Miwa Matreyek is a performance artist who creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her animations as a shadow silhouette, creating work at the cross section of cinematic and theatrical, fanatical and tangible, illusionistic and physical.
UVM Lane Series, in collaboration with Young Tradition Vermont, present Vermont Mandolin Trio. The evening of acoustic bluegrass, jazz, roots, and improv includes Grammy-nominated mandolinist Matt Flinner; Jamie Masefield and Will Patton (whom you may remember from the late, great, Jazz Mandolin Project); and the trio will be joined by bassist Pat Melvin.
Beg, Steal or Borrow was formed in early 2013 with a mission to resurrect the music of the iconic bluegrass band Old and in the Way and have since grown into a solid repertoire of original material. Winning three prestigious bluegrass band competitions in Maine, Connecticut and New York, they have been dubbed a “Triple Crown Bluegrass Band” by Bluegrass Today.
Battery Dance Festival—NYC's longest-running, free, public dance festival—presents a program celebrating the work of Canadian dance makers—Citadel + Compagnie, Kaeja d’Dance, RUBBERBAND, The National Ballet of Canada, and Tanveer Alam—in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in New York. In anticipation of the program, Battery Dance Artistic Director Jonathan Hollander sat down with the artists to discuss their works.
