First up is the Living Earth Show, which opens this Friday. It is a blend of energy, precision, whimsy and depth. In other words, it will an evening of electro-acoustic contemporary classical music, performed by guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andrew Meyerson, joined by a growing collection of electronic devices. Featured in this program are several premieres including composer Ken Ueno’s Pork Roll, Egg, and Cheese on a Kaiser Bun.
Then on October 18th, BAMPFA will present Kiandanda Dance Theater. It features Congolese dancer and choreographer Byb Chanel Bibine, who along with his dance troupe, will present Taboo and Heroes, a new multimedia work that addresses violence and corruption, drawing on Bibine’s own experience with the war that occurred in the Republic of Congo in the late 1990s.
Both programs will be preceded by a reading from BAMPFA’s RE@DS program, both beginning at 5:30pm, and is included with admission into L@TE: Friday Nights. This Friday, there will be a reading from authors Elizabeth Reddin and Rod Roland, and authors Christoper Miller and Jane Gregory on October 18th. And as usual. Doors open at 5pm, with DJs at 6:30pm.
