THE FOURTH CIRCLE, a performing arts experience happening at Mid-City Theatre, that shows what can happen when different disciplines work together.
After being exposed to a short art-house film as inspiration, three different artists: a musician, a dancer, and a painter come together to create a new original collaborative piece in front of your eyes. Artists will vary from week to week, with a new experience each night.
After the last performance on August 24, all the creations (video recordings, audio recordings, and artwork from each night) will be raffled off. All proceeds from raffle donations will be going to The Learning Services Center, a Traumatic Brain Injury assisted living program.
MUSIC: Dorian Rush and Harry Mayronne
FILM: Shanna Forrestall will present the short film, "Fettuccine"
Tango Jazz Quartet plays a uniquely beautiful blend of music that incorporates the melodies and rhythms of tango with the improvisation of jazz. The ensemble takes inspiration from the 1940s and 50s when tango and jazz bands shared stages in their native Buenos Aires. Local audiences will be able to enjoy their exquisitely sensitive blend of the smooth, sometimes cheeky melodies and rhythms of tango, with the harmony and improvisation of jazz. Tango Jazz Quartet regularly plays prestigious festivals in Latin America, Europe, and South Africa and has released three albums including their most recent, On Tour 2013, all have been met with critical acclaim.
